One of Taylor Swift's biggest fears is ending up in handcuffs under police custody.

The country sweetheart, 23, has built up a reputation for herself as a clean-living role model for fans, but the I Knew You Were Trouble hitmaker admits she's seriously scared of landing behind bars like other young stars such as Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes.

Filling out wide-ranging questionnaire for Marie Claire magazine, she lists her Top Five Fears as: "(1) Sea urchins, (2) Googling myself, (3) Earwigs, (4) Cynics, (5) Getting arrested."

In the article, she also reveals she's planning to one day go back to school to get a college degree, insisting she will succeed "somehow, someway", and confesses her "fantasy itinerary" would be a Tv marathon of new episodes of hit crime drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
