Ariel Winter on Covering Taylor Swift Song: "You Know I Had To"

Modern Family star Ariel Winter isn't letting her ongoing family problems get the best of her.

"I'm good," the 14-year-old actress told me last night as she stepped onto the red carpet at Elle's Women in Television event at Soho House.

And she's also feeling good about her singing. She posted a video on YouTube yesterday of her covering Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble."

"I love the song and you know I had to cover it," Winter said. "I was looking to do a cover and I didn't know what I was going to do, and then I said, You know what? This is the perfect song."

Why's that?

"It's totally real, and everybody has that one boy in their life that's total trouble," the 14-year-old Winter. "I mean it's something that a lot of teen girls can relate with."

Will Ariel make it into our gallery of musicians performing live on stage someday?

So was the 14-year-old thinking of anyone in particular while singing?

She smiled, "I don't know."
