Taylor Swift has been teasing fans with a big announcement for the past few weeks, and yesterday we found out exactly what it was all about: she’s got a new single called ‘Shake It Off’ and is releasing her first full-on pop album, 1989, in October. YES!
I’m a Taylor Swift fan – I think her songs are catchy, I think she’s incredibly talented and you never hear a bad word about her in terms of her being a bitch or a diva. She’s funny, she doesn’t give a shit for people who have negative shit to say about her and I just think she’s super adorable.
Plus, this song? SO GOOD. I think I’ve listened to it about 30 times already and I’m obsessed. Love some feel good pop music, and I think this album is going to be awesome. Get it, Taylor.

Taylor Swift has become even more noteworthy as of late for looking absolutely incredible when leaving the gym. It’s a bit bizarre and I kinda don’t understand it how someone leaves the place where they’ve presumably just sweat their ass off looking as though they’ve actually come from a salon. So how does she do it?
Check out her interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers for some insight:

Taylor Swift took the music world by storm long ago, but now she’s set her sights on the film world, as well. She has a part in the upcoming film release of The Giver, and showed up at the NYC premiere yesterday looking absolutely stunning. However you feel about TSwift, you must admit, she’s a lovely girl who knows how to dress.
I’m not sure what’s happening with Katie Holmes’ outfit, unfortunately, but Taylor’s dress and makeup are flawless.

Taylor Swift is returning to The Late Show starring Jimmy Fallon soon, and for the occasion, she’s taking part in one of his infamous “Ew!” sketches. I won’t give too much info on this one – let’s just watch and enjoy (?) together, shall we?
Taylor will be on the show on Wednesday night, so if this is your sorta thing, makes sure you turn in.

If there’s one thing Taylor Swift knows all about, it’s love. She might not be very good at it, but she’s had her share of relationships, some more successful than others, and she wants to share the wisdom she’s gained with her adoring fans. That’s why when one girl took to Instagram to express her longing for the boy across the street, TaySwift dropped some serious knowledge on her ass and told her just what to do.
Here’s what Instagram user sherbetswift wrote:
There’s a guy Taylor, a guy who’s sweet and charming and makes me laugh. A guy who said sorry for eating in front of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast. A guy who grew up across the street from me. A guy who plays guitar like me. A guy who was my first best friend. A guy who I met when I was seven and he was nine. A guy who this one time, when we were younger, said that I was ‘like’ his girlfriend because I was a girl and his friend. I wish. A guy who I have the biggest crush in the whole wide world on, and he’ll never like me back. (And he has a girlfriend who he adores and she’s pretty and has an amazing figure and is actually nice to me). A guy who will never like me back. @taylorswift can you give me some advice maybe. I love you. Hannah ??
And here’s our girl Taylor’s response:
Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself) Okay. About this guy. I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think you’ll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.
I mean, it’s all very cheesy, but you know how everything seemed like the end of the world when you were a teenager, and when you had a crush on someone who didn’t like you back, it was pretty much the worst thing ever, so I feel bad for the kid. Also, it was really, really nice for TSwift to step up and actually respond to this girl. As a celebrity who probably gets a million questions/tags a day, it’s probably not easy to get to everyone, and I think it’s really sweet that she took the time out.

Taylor Swift is a much-celebrated musician. Despite her young age, she’s written tons of songs, performed to sold-out crowds all over the world, made millions upon millions of dollars, etc. People love her, as well – she’s grown up in the spotlight without becoming a hot ass mess (at least not in any obvious ways).
Turns out, even people in the industry think she’s the bee’s knees. Take fun. lead guitarist Jack Antonoff (that’s the yahoo in the red hat in the photo above), who’s worked with Taylor before and can’t get enough. So much so that he believes she’s this generation’s Michael Jackson. Uhhhh… stop the press.
“I think Taylor Swift is one of the best songwriters ever,” Antonoff said.
“Taylor Swift is cool, because she’s the closest thing today that hearkens to Michael Jackson — to great, great pop music. There’s a difference between her and Gaga and Katy Perry and Lily Allen and all that. It all feels throwaway, comparatively.”
So, is Jack trying to bone, or what? It all seems a liiiiittle too enthusiastic for me. I like Taylor, and I think she makes decent pop music, but comparing her to Michael Jackson is WAY premature. Let’s all take it down several notches, shall we?
