Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift has no reason to have "teardrops on her guitar." Her sophmore album Fearless was a smash hit! It was released in the United States on November 11, 2008. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. Its sales of 592,000 was the best single week for any country album in a year. She released the lead single from the album, "Love Story", which reached #2 on iTunes Store Top Downloaded Songs and #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Taylor Swifts personal life has been a little rocky lately. Swift confirmed in a 2008 interview with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that she had dated singer Joe Jonas and that he "dumped her over the phone in 27 seconds." Swift wrote the song "Forever & Always" about Joe Jonas, and the song appeared on her album, Fearless. It was the last song that she had recorded, and it was a last minute addition to her album, making it 13 songs total. 13 is also Swift's "lucky number". I have a feeling Taylor isn't thinking about Joe Jonas anymore. Her album will continue gain more sales as she releases more amazing singles. The girl is unstoppable at this point which I am happy about!

Taylor Swift is such a wonderful role model. She isn't promiscuous, shes smart, and shes beautiful. What a great person for a teenage girl to look up to. Let's just hope she doesn't mess it up like most famous teenagers have in the past.

I agree that Taylor is a very very talented song writer and that her songs are worth the downlaod. I just don't think that she is a true country star. These days with all the tecnology anyone can be a singer if the have the right equipment. The recent award shows where she was able to sing live only proves my point. The CMAs she was terrible and then live at the AMAs her perfomance was even worse. Lastnight for the Grammy's nomination show (where once again she allowed to perform just beacuse she's the famous Taylor Swift) was the worst so far!!! Taylor trying to sing a song that was not something that she wrote was the worst decision, no wonder she ended it with a song of her own.
