What happened to Taylor Swift? While we have known, intellectually, for some time that she is the blonde, sweet, multi-platinum-selling country star, we can’t swear that in Britain, we always really got her, can we? In fact, for many years, you’d have sooner flashed your knickers on the bus than let anyone see her name flash up on your iPod.
Now? She is owning us all – a global phenomenon of an album, an obsession to her 25.5million Instagram followers. A Saturday Night Live sketch from a few months ago sums it up nicely, where a bunch of adults rush to their doctors suffering from a new sincere and unironic enjoyment of Taylor Swift tunes. The joke being, this is confusing and alarming for them. I think most of us can relate. Her album 1989 is one of the most ludicrously catchy collections of ‘proper’ pop songs since Gaga’s The Fame. Resistance has been futile. And not only is it now politely tolerated, but actually totally frickin’ cool to unashamedly adore Taylor Swift. Hell, even Kanye, who once famously stormed a stage because she won ‘Beyoncé’s’ VMA award, is now a fan.
Taylor is featured in Variety’s New York Women’s Impact Report. The list recognizes 2015’s most impacting women in entertainment, media, finance, and culture in New York City. Read the piece about Taylor below!
Taylor Swift – Singer-Songwriter
Hundreds of fresh-faced twentysomethings move to New York every week, but few get to announce their arrival via the opening track on the bestselling album of the year. Swift’s “Welcome to New York” may have drawn the ire of some longtime Gothamites with its relentless positivity, but it’s already joined the canon of Big Apple anthems that stretches back from Bernstein to Sinatra and Jay Z. Having already been certified quadruple platinum, “1989” remains ensconced in the top 10 half a year after its release, and should continue to sell steadily as Swift leaves her fresh Manhattan digs to mount a global tour from May through December. Fortunately, her adopted home will still be waiting for her when she gets back.

Taylor attended the 50th Annual ACM Awards in Dallas, Texas in a stunning light blue Reem Acra dress. She was honored with a special Milestone Award for being the youngest recipient of the Entertainer of the Year award. The award was presented by her mother Andrea in a touching speech.

Taylor Swift: megawatt talent, an extraordinary spirit, an impossibly charming blend of impishness, poise and radiance to spare. All of it combines to rock me back on my heels every time I see her. Both literally and figuratively, she’s a woman who writes her own songs. That makes for music that’s personal, of the moment and impossible to resist.
I’m amazed at how much earned wisdom Taylor threads into her work. She seems tuned in to the greater good, and she embraces—thoughtfully and authentically—the chance to contribute to the world. I’m always trying to find the best words to talk to my kids (and myself) about growing up, but you can’t top her beautifully articulated advice. The haters are gonna hate, but, well, shake it off. She illuminates our inner music that lets us dance to our own beat.
Along with her staggering list of accomplishments, perhaps the most exciting thing about Taylor is that she’s just getting started with what she plans to mine from her fierce, curious, boundlessly talented and beautiful heart.
