The pop star wants to add an honorary doctorate to her collection of awards and accolades so she can keep up with Ed Sheeran.

Taylor Swift has ticked a major thing off her bucket list by attending the Coachella festival last weekend (16-17Apr16).

In a pre-Grammy Awards interview with, which has just been released as the website's latest 73 Questions segment, the Love Story singer admits she has always wanted to attend the desert festival but is too afraid to go.

That all changed at the weekend when she joined pals to support her boyfriend Calvin Harris, who closed out the annual California music event on Sunday night.

And it seems she enjoyed the party so much, she dashed back from a pal's wedding to check out as much of Sunday's festival sets as possible.

In her 73 Questions video spot, during which she showed a curious Vogue reporter around her home, Taylor also confessed she loves coffee, chicken tenders, TV show Friends, playing Scrabble, and the film Love Actually, while Kevin Hart always makes her laugh and her favourite cocktail is an unadventurous "vodka and Diet Coke".

She also raved about a beloved birthday cake, explaining, "It was from Milk Bar, it was my 25th birthday, and it was so good that even Jay Z raved about it".

And she was also fond of boyfriend Harris' Christmas gift, stating, "(He) planted an olive tree in my yard."

There was also a nod to pal Ed Sheeran when Taylor was asked about the one thing she still wanted to achieve.

"I really want an honorary doctorate degree, because Ed Sheeran has one and I feel like he looks down on me now, because I don't have one," she smiled.

The Thinking Out Loud singer received his honorary degree for his "outstanding contribution to music" from the University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich, England last year (15).

Swift also revealed Matt Damon's movie The Martian makes her cry, she enjoys watching U.S. news show Dateline, and would love to have healing superpowers.
