Taylor Swift Fights The Power

Any pop star in her 20s is bound to take a walk on the wild side now and again. For Miley Cyrus, that involves twerking, bleaching her eyebrows, and straddling inflatable willies. For Selena Gomez, it's dating, splitting from, getting back together with, and ultimately ditching Justin Bieber. For Taylor Swift, it's flouting the rules and sticking it to The Man, one Instagram pic at a time.
The loose cannon of Top 40 posted the above snap to her nine-million-plus Instafans, adding the tongue-in-cheek caption "Rebel." Witnesses report the 24-year-old singer then ripped the tags off her mattress, jaywalked across the street, threw a Coke bottle in the non-recycling bin, and purposely didn't return a library book on time. So defiant, that one.
