Taylor is gracing the June 2015 cover of Glamour UK magazine. She is also the guest editor of the issue. Head over to our gallery to see the cover and the photoshoot!
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.
