Let’s talk about my queen, Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is an american-born singer-songwriter commonly known for her songs about her experiences in her controversial relationships.
Taylor was born in, believe it or not, a Christmas Tree Farm where she helps remove grasshopper pods from the trees.
At 12, a computer repairman taught Taylor how to play three chords which she used to write her first song, “Lucky You”.
14-year old Taylor Swift was discovered while playing at Bluebird Cafe for an industry showcase where she caught the attention of Scott Borchetta, a Dreamworks Records executive who’s preparing to launch his own independent record label: Big Machine Records.
At 2006, Taylor Swift’s first single “Tim McGraw” along with her self-titled first album were released. In 2007 and 2008, four more singles were released:
Teardrops on My Guitar, Our Song, Picture to Burn, and Should’ve Said No.
All were successful in entering the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart where “Our Song” and “Should’ve Said No” both reached number one, while “Teardrops on My Guitar” was able to reach number thirteen at Billboard Hot 100.
Taylor Swift quickly rose to fame as a young singer-songwriter who writes her own love stories and transforms them into songs. Swift released four more albums every two years since 2006: Fearless (2008), Speak Now (2010), Red (2012), 1989 (2014).
And four concert tours: Fearless Tour (2009-2010), Speak Now World Tour (2011-2012), The Red Tour (2013-2014), The 1989 World Tour (2015)
Taylor Swift soon became one of the youngest and most successful people in the world currently aged 26, with an estimated net worth of $250 million.
Year after year, Swift manages to top the charts earning her awards and achievements including: 10 Grammy Awards, 19 American Music Awards, 23 Billboard Music Awards, 1 Country Music Association Award, 8 Academy of Country Music Awards, 1 Brit Award, and 1 Emmy.
“I’ve told you my stories for years now. Some have been about coming of age. Some have been about coming undone. This is a story about coming into your own, and as a result…Coming alive.
I hope you know that you’ve given me the courage to change. I hope you know that who you are is who you choose to be, and that whispers behind your back don’t define you. You are the only one who gets to decide what you will be remembered for.
From the girl who said she would never cut her hair or move to New York or find happiness in a world where she is not in love…”
