Taylor Swift Names New Kitten After ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Character


Taylor Swift has a new love interest, and it’s definitely not what you think.

The “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer shared a photo on Instagram of the newest member to her family – a precious, white, blue-eyed, kitten.

“Meet Olivia Benson,” she captioned the photo of the adorable feline sitting on her lap.

Olivia Benson is named after a character from one of the Taylor’s favorite shows Law & Order SVU, played by Mariska Hargitay.

The 24-year-old has been a super-fan of the NBC series for years. In 2011, Teen Vogue asked her what character from a book, movie, or TV she would want to have dinner with, and she responded with “Detective Olivia Benson.”

“I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show,” the country singer added. “So I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs.”

Olivia Benson isn’t the only pet Taylor has named after a TV show character. The pop star named her first cat, Meredith, in honor of the character Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) from Grey’s Anatomy.
