Taylor Swift

Born Taylor Alison Swift born 13th December 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. Raised in Wyoming, Pennsylvania with a younger brother. Moved to Nashville, with her family, at fourteen years old to pursue her music career.

Based on various interviews heres the top 15 things she wants you to know.

The Worlds Introduction To Taylor Swift

It was the song "Tim McGraw" which introduced Taylor Swift to the world as a top modern country music artists. It was her 2008 track "Love Story" that catapulted her into worldwide fame.

Geetarz

I lost track of how many guitars I have in 2007. The song I first learned to play on guitar was "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer.

Writing A Song

To get an idea for a song I record a voice memo of myself singing it or I write it down in my notes lots of preparation I write a lot of my ideas down before I get into the session.
"Blank Space" was the song that took the least amount of time to write. "All Too Well" was the longest.

Favourites

Favourite Food : I would eat Chicken Tenders every day if calories didn't count.

Favourite Cocktail : Vodka and diet coke.

Favourite TV Show : Friends.

Favourite Current TV Show : Dateline.

Favourite Film : Love Actually.

Nervous Habit

I wish I could get rid of the habit of shaking my leg when I'm sitting. It makes me look nervous and it makes those around me feel nervous too.

A Change In Direction

The biggest challenge was convincing members of my own team that this was a good call. They said : "Are you sure you want to call the album 1989, we think it's a weird title?"...."Are you sure that you want to put an album cover out that has less than half your face on it?"... "Are you positive that you want to take a genre that you have cemented yourself in and completely switch to a new one that you are a newcomer to?"

Answering all those questions was, "Yes, I'm sure!". That was I think something that really that was, I think, something that frustrated me at the time. Don't you understand. I promise this is what I'm dying to do. The biggest kind of struggle turned into the biggest triumph.

Normal Life

I invited friends to my house to listen to 1989 before it was released it keeps my life normal and manageable.

Abnormal Life

My life is not normal, not at all, that's why when I go on Instagram and see a post from "Emma" and she's talking about how her day at school was that day, that helps me. It's the only thing that keeps me from not being overwhelmed by the abnormality of my life.

Fame

The most abnormal think about my life is crowds forming everywhere I go. So you have to take security with you and me realising how I haven't been alone, truly, for five years.

Songs Written

If a guy shares his experience in writing he's brave. If a woman shares her experience in writing she's oversharing and she's over-emotional or crazy. "Watch out she'll write a song about you". That joke is so old and it's coming from a place of such sexism.

The Boss

I have a guitar that I write my songs on and when Bruce Springsteen came to my show, with his daughters, backstage. He signed my guitar and played "Dancing in the Dark" on it, which I recorded on my phone.
.

Negative Gossip

Not only was I going through people saying things about me that weren't true. So was everyone that I was talking to online. We may have different circumstances surrounding our lives and different sources of gossip. There is like whispers in school hallways or rumours at work and mine is on the newstand when I check out at the grocery store. Still it's the same feelings. You have to let go of things you can't control.

Another Job

If I wasn't a singer I think I would be in advertising as coming up with slogans and concepts is the same as coming up with hooks in songs.

Advice

You're going to have thousands of decisions to make on a daily basis that will end up depicting your image, your sound. All the things that will shape the public's perception of you as an artist. Let them decisions be your decisions. Creatively I think you should steer the ship.


Falling In Love

I want to be the girl that when I fall in love it's a big deal and a rare thing.
