She routinely kicks off her weekend by sweating it out in a dance studio.
On Saturday she added a little extra excitement to her wardrobe by wearing an oversized hoodie emblazoned with the face of a black Jaguar in attack mode, fangs showing and all.
The 24-year-old seemed to be in good spirits as she was escorted to her ballet session, which is pretty impressive considering her Sweeter Than Fiction song for the film One Chance was snubbed this week by the Oscars nods.
Taylor stuck to her usual ballet flats and black leggings to hug her incredibly slim pins, carrying an elegant black leather handbag on her right arm.
The I Knew You Were Trouble singer wore a splash of red lipstick and pulled her delicate blonde tresses back into a casual ponytail, ready to hit the dance floor.
But the frightening, open-mouthed, snarling panther that sat front and centre on the starlet's hooded sweater threw things a little out of order.
With menacing eyes and enormous sharp pointy teeth, the growling black cat's face warned passers by that Taylor may be pretty and sweet, but she sure does know how to channel her inner ferociousness.
The songstress smiled and giggled her way through the sunny Los Angeles day, apparently tickled by something along the way as she shared a laugh with her team.
She was seen smiling, which would surely put her in good stead for a productive dance practice session.
Taylor is likely to be preparing herself for the upcoming Grammy Awards.
The seven-time Grammy winner's fourth studio record Red is up for album of the year and best country album when the show airs January 26 on CBS.
Her song Begin Again will vie for best country song, and she's up for best country duo/group performance alongside Tim McGraw and Keith Urban on Highway Don't Care.
The Sparks Fly hitmaker will also perform at the Grammy's where the two remaining Beatles, Lorde, Pink, and Katy Perry will also take the stage.
