Yes, I am still talking about Taylor Swift….and yes, as Brad Paisley said it so brilliantly last night, I to am suffering from #PPTSD – Post Partum Taylor Swift Disorder!  We miss her sparkly face!

Twenty-two percent of all albums bought in the past week were copies of Taylor’s “1989!”  Let that sink in….22%!!!!

Billboard reports “1989” sold 1.287 million copies, easily putting it at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart. More people bought “1989” than bought the albums at numbers 2 through 107 on the chart combined. It’s also the largest sales week for an album since “The Eminem Show” sold 1.322 million in 2002.

Congratulations Taylor!!!

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 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:
