Taylor was featured on the Guardian’s Media100 Most Influential People in Media List! Coming in at #8, Taylor is the only other entertainer featured alongside Adele. Amongst Taylor’s record breaking album sales, Taylor is also credited for her influence in changing Apple’s policy on compensation for artists during Apple Music’s free trial period.
Taylor Swift Is Continuing Her Reign As The Most Influential Woman In The U.k. Press After Landing At Number Eight On The 2015 Mediaguardian 100 Poll.
The annual survey, compiled by editors at Britain’s Guardian newspaper, ranks those who boast the most pulling power and have had the biggest impact on national art, advertising, technology and journalism in the past year.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg tops the new countdown, while fellow tech leaders Larry Page, co-founder of Google, and Apple CEO Tim Cook trail at two and three, respectively.
Taylor becomes the highest-placed celebrity at eight, up two spots from last year’s (14) poll, after the Shake It Off singer “singlehandedly got Apple to take notice when they totally ignored major corporations” over their initial plans not to compensate artists for streaming their work during Apple Music’s free trial earlier this year (15).
British presenter Chris Evans rides high at 13, while fellow TV personality and comedian Lenny Henry places at 18.
Taylor performed at the ANZ stadium in Sydney, Australia yesterday! She performed in front of a crowd of 76,000 fans, the largest crowd she’s ever played to. For the surprise B stage song, Taylor chose “You Are In Love“. Check out photos from the show in the gallery and make sure to read reviews from the show below!
We all know that Taylor Swift is a fab singer/ songwriter/ all-round person, but in our exclusive new video you can see that she makes a pretty fantastic host as she tries her hand at interviewing emerging artist, Alessia Cara.
In case you didn’t know, Taylor has been championing Alessia for quite some time, and even invited the singer to join her on stage at the Tampa, Florida date of her 1989 world tour, and after they went out in front of thousands and thousands of fans, they took the chance to have a little chinwag.
Thankfully, they had the foresight to film their chat as Taylor quizzes Alessia on everything from music to self-acceptance.
Needless to say, these two have quickly become our ultimate #SquadGoals
Keep an eye out for part two of the interview, which will be debuting tomorrow afternoon!
NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Today, singer, songwriter Taylor Swift and Scholastic, the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books, announced a donation of 25,000 new, age-appropriate books from the Scholastic Possible Fund to 25 New York City schools in need of more books for their students.
Twenty-five schools will each receive 1,000 new children’s books through the Scholastic Possible Fund as a result of Taylor’s support of the Company’s “Open a World of Possible,” initiative, designed to promote independent reading among all children. As a long-time literacy advocate, Taylor hosted a webcast for classrooms during which she shared how books, reading and writing have influenced her and opened her world. Since it first aired in October 2014, the webcast has been viewed by more than 4.5 million students from around the country and is available at: http://www.scholastic.com/taylorswift/
The importance of increasing access to books in schools was highlighted in the most recent Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report™ which found that children ages 6-17 from lower-income households are more likely to read books for fun in school and far less likely to read books outside of school than their higher-income peers. Further, having a selection of texts for independent reading can be a powerful tool to encourage kids to pick up a book. The same report revealed that nine in ten kids agree their favorite books – and the ones they are the most likely to finish – are the ones they pick out themselves.
