The behind-the-scenes for Taylor’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” music video has been released! It’s in three parts, you can see them below! It’s awesome to see how it was shot, so don’t forget to watch it!
Taylor gave a cool interview with Nashville Lifestyles about her favorite tourist spots, restaurants, and living in her own place. It’s really different from most interviews and enjoyable, so take a minute to read it!
NL: How does it feel to have your own place in Midtown Nashville? TS: I love living in Midtown. In 10 minutes, I can walk to Hillsboro Village through the Vanderbilt campus, past the gorgeous old stone buildings and churches. I love being so close to Green Hills and the Gulch and Broadway. Everything is two minutes away.
NL: What’s your favorite thing about owning and having your own place? TS: My favorite thing is getting to have my friends over and cook for them. Hanging out with friends at home always turns into some piano sing-along, so I have all kinds of percussion instruments and guitars lying around. Also, living in an apartment motivates you to get out and get things done during the day. Something about living up in the sky, being able to see the whole city going about its day, makes you want to get up early and go accomplish things.
NL: If you had a day to be anonymous in Music City, what would you do and where would you go? TS: I’d just probably do the same things I usually do. It would be so depressing to think I couldn’t go certain places because people know who I am now. I love going to the shops in Franklin and walking around the adorable areas in East Nashville (my fiddle player Caitlin’s neighborhood) and walking to Starbucks in the morning.
The RIAA has released its tallies of last year’s Gold and Platinum certifications, with Adele, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jepsen and Gotye unsurprisingly among the most-awarded artists of 2012. Last year, the RIAA awarded more song download honors than any other year in program history, including a 70 percent increase during the past two years, a 25 percent increase year-over-year, and a record breaking 139 digital songs certified Platinum in 2012. In total, 524 digital songs certifications were awarded in 2012, vs. 409 in 2011, and 313 in 2010.
The RIAA also awarded the Diamond award to Adele in 2012, whose smash album 21 became the first album in a decade to sell more than 10 million units in less than two years. Taylor Swift earned 2012’s highest album certification with Red, which sold more than three million U.S. copies in just one month to become the RIAA’s top certified album at 3x multi-Platinum. She was also awarded a 3x multi-Platinum certification for “We Are Never Getting Back Together” and Platinums for “Red,” “I Knew You Were Trouble,” “Begin Again” and “Eyes Open.” Taylor’s career digital RIAA song certifications now surpass 37 million sold since her career began in 2006.
Taylor performed a private concert for some lucky fans in Paris last night. She sang several songs from Red, including “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and “22,” as well as some old favorites like “Love Story” and “You Belong With Me.” You can check out photos from the show in the gallery and videos on the forum!
