Taylor Swift Says She is Proud to Have Come From the Country Music Community


Taylor Swift says she is proud to have come from the country music community and that Nashville was the best kind of training.

“Country music teaches you to work,” Taylor says in the upcoming issue of Esquire. “You hear stories about these artists who show up four hours late to a photo shoot, and in Nashville that doesn’t happen. In Nashville, if you go four hours late to a photo shoot, everyone leaves. In Nashville, if you don’t care about radio and being kind to people who are being good to you … It’s a symbiotic relationship, and if you don’t take care of it, they won’t take care of you. I’ve never been more proud to have come from a community that’s so rooted in songwriting, so rooted in hard work and in treating people well. It was the best kind of training.”

Taylor is profiled in the November issue, out this week and is set to release 1989 on October 27th.

Taylor Swift Named Billboard’s Woman of the Year



Taylor Swift has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year — again. She won the award in 2011 as well.

Taylor is the first artist to win the award twice since it was first given in 2007.   The multi-genre super star will be honored during Billboard’s Women in Music Awards in New York on December 12.

Taylor has said her upcoming pop album,  1989,  isn’t a “heartbreak record” in the vein of Red, but her new single, “Out of the Woods,” is about a relationship gone wrong. She previewed the track on Good Morning America Monday. Take a listen below:

Kendrick Lamar Says Thanks to Taylor Swift for Supporting Hip-Hop Culture

The closer and closer we get to the release of Taylor Swift’s very first pop album the more I am starting to realize country music really has lost her.

Kendrick Lamar says he appreciates the love from Taylor. She recently told Rolling Stone she listens to Lamar’s music to change her mood from “victimized” to “awesome.” She said her go-to song is Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle.” Lamar says he’s grateful to hear that Taylor likes what he does. He says people try to lock down hip-hop as being for one particular listener, when really it’s for all people. He says he appreciates Taylor for not only supporting his music but hip-hop culture.

Taylor is set to release 1989 on October 27th.

Taylor Swift Doesn’t Think Your Dating Jokes Are Funny

Taylor Swift MTV Awards
Taylor Swift has not gone on a date in more than a year and a half, since she broke up with Harry Styles of One Direction. She tells Rolling Stone she’s had enough of people using her love life as entertainment.

She says she doesn’t like seeing slide shows of guys she supposedly dated, or comedians making jokes about her at award shows, or seeing headlines that warn guys she’ll write a song about them. Swift says it builds so much pressure into a relationship that it’s snuffed out before it begins.

If you haven’t read the Rolling Stone article yet, it’s a MUST read!  I already love Taylor but the article made me fall more in love with the singer.  I think she is brave, uplifting and good for a society that thinks mean girls are better than good ones!
