The Life Of Taylor Swift

Today is Taylor Swift’s birthday. It isn’t a National Holiday, but it should be! In honor of her special day, let’s look back at the life and career of Taylor Swift!

Worldwide Stardom

Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989. She is from Pennsylvania. At a young age, Swift took vocal and acting lessons. She was inspired by artists like Shania Twain and Faith Hill to pursue a career in country music. A young Swift would learn to play guitar and after modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch, she was able to score meetings with record labels. As a teenager Swift was able to achieve massive success as a recording artist. That musical success has led to acting roles and worldwide stardom. Taylor Swift has inspired millions and has a passionate fanbase that follows her religiously, they are affectionately called “Swifties.”

Uncanny Ability

Swift has always had an uncanny ability to connect with her audience. She sings candidly about being alienated from social circles, troubles with boys, and her own personal struggles with insecurity. When you mix her vulnerability with her effortless likeability and talent, you have an icon making recipe.

A Controversial Rivalry

In 2009 Kanye West made Taylor Swift a rival, a rivalry that still lasts today. During the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, West stormed the stage to show his anger with Swift beating out Beyonce for Best Female Video. That moment is now infamous, and turned Ye, maybe for the first time in his life, into a villain. His rivalry with Swift would continue, and the two are still at odds today. The way Swift would handle the controversial moment would endure her to a whole new fanbase.

The Kanye beef seemed to spark a worldwide interest in Swift’s personal life. Her dating life would not only be a big part of her music, but also the world of gossip news. As her fame grew, so did the public’s obsession with her boyfriends and flings.

Building A Legacy

The artist was already successful by the age of 16. Her debut album was called Taylor Swift. It was a massive hit that led to more hits for the young artist. Her 2008 record, Fearless, would continue her ascend to pop stardom. While Swift came from strong country roots, her style became more and more pop and mainstream with each album’s release. More hits would follow, including Speak Now, Red, and 1989. Each hit record, accompanied by popular singles, would help Swift become more and more of a superstar in the industry.
