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:

It’s official!  Taylor Swift will be a guest coach on “The Voice” but she won’t choose sides. Taylor will help the contestants on all four teams during the knockout rounds. Her episodes will run the week of October 27.

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!

Taylor Swift Responds to Bullied Fan on Instagram

Taylor Swift MTV Awards

Taylor Swift has always been truly unique. Country or not…she’s been someone to set the bar extremely high for how artists should interact with fans. In fact, I’m thinking that’s why her popularity spread so quickly, and her haters became so vocal. Nothing goes faster than word of mouth, and Taylor Swift has always shown an uncanny amount of love and respect to her fans, giving them personal attention and allowing them into her heart. She’s been known to comment on fans Facebook pages, and recently she left a touching note on a fans Instagram who was being bullied.


Reading this made me so sad because I love seeing you in your videos and photos being so happy and wide eyed, like the world isn’t as harsh and unfair as it actually is. I hate thinking about your pretty face covered in tears, but I know why you’re crying because I’ve been in your place. This isn’t a high school thing or an age thing. It’s a people thing. A life thing. It doesn’t stop. It doesn’t end or change.

People cut other people down for entertainment, amusement, out of jealousy, because of something broken inside them. Or for no reason at all. It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. They won’t understand you and they won’t understand me.

But the only way they win is if your tears turn to stone and make you bitter like them. It’s okay to ask why. It’s okay to wonder how you could try so hard and still get stomped all over. Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing or dancing around to your favorite song.

You’re going into high school this week and this is your chance to push the reset button on how much value you give the opinion of these kids, most of whom have NO idea who they are. I’m so proud of you and protective of you because you DO. If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more.

Every time someone picks on me, I’ll think of you in the hopes that every time someone picks on you, you’ll think of me… and how we have this thread that connects us. Let them keep living in the darkness and we’ll keep walking in the sunlight.

Forever on your side, Taylor.

And that my friends… is how it’s done. Giving to your fans as much as they’ve given to you.
