The fears and myths associated with the number 13 are not new and are fairly common across all walks of life. But not everyone has an aversion to “unlucky” numbers.
The hospitality industry in particular is fixated on this myth, and while many of Nashville’s newest hotels boast a lot from rooftop bars to stunning views, most are missing one thing. It means it’s on the 13th floor. But that myth doesn’t apply to some people in the music industry. Taylor Swift has no fear when it comes to the number 13. The iconic singer and songwriter has long held the belief that 13 is actually her lucky number.
In fact, the number has followed the singer for most of her life, with Swift referring to the importance of the number 13 in her life in an interview dating back to 2009.
Let’s see how the supposedly “unlucky” number gave the pop star a boost.

‘Back in December’ where Taylor Swift was born
Swift’s association with the number 13 began the day she was born.
Swift was welcomed into the world on December 13, 1989 in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. No, it was Wednesday, not Friday.
In 2002, Swift celebrated her 13th birthday on Friday the 13th. She will celebrate her 35th birthday on her Friday the 13th in 2024 and her 52nd birthday (which is also divisible by her 13) in 2041.
There’s ‘No Bad Blood’ Between Taylor Swift and No. 13
Swift’s first album went gold in 13 weeks, and her first No. 1 song had a 13-second intro. In an interview with MTV, Swift said, “Every time I’ve won an award, I’ve been sitting in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section, or the 13th letter, the M row.” .
The star has been spotted wearing eyeliner numbers on his hands during previous tours, but has forgotten them in recent years.

‘…are you ready?’: Taylor Swift’s love for the number 13 is reflected in her music
Swift may no longer wear the number “13” on her hand, but she incorporates it whenever possible.
According to Billboard, Swift went all out on her 2017 album Reputation and other albums when it came to hiding a small Easter egg named after the number 13. When the album was leaked, many thought that track 13 from the album, “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” (Taylor, I know what you did) was missing from the leaked version. I realized that right away.
Her first No. 1 hit, “Our Song,” had a 13-second intro, and she’s used it several times since, in the intros of songs like “Call it What You Want.”
She’s also hidden 13 things in her music videos over the years, including the already-mentioned crammed “…Ready For It?”
Swift’s latest Eras Tour also has 52 stops, and as mentioned above, that number is divisible by 13. Is it a coincidence?
