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.
Taylor was spotted on the set of the “Bad Blood” music video Sunday morninf in Los Angeles, California. Other celebrities such as Zendaya, Hayley Williams, Cara Delevingne and many more were also seen on the set. Click on the thumbnails below to see the pictures!
Talk within music circles is shifting to “Bad Blood,” which is slated to be released as the fourth single from “1989,” but there are currently only three official singles from Taylor Swift’s album.
The combined US sales total for “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space” and “Style,” those singles, now exceeds the 9.5 million mark.
According to Nielsen Music, the songs possess respective cumulative digital sales marks of 4.307 million, 3.853 million and 1.366 million. Collectively, the official radio releases from “1989” have sold 9.526 million digital copies in the United States.
Nearly 147,000 of those sales came this week. Current single “Style” moved 73,163 copies, while “Blank Space” and “Shake it Off” followed with 40,042 and 33,632, respectively.
They accounted for 72% of the weekly “1989” track sales. Per Nielsen, the fifth Swift album was responsible for 204,136 individual track sales this week. Under the current Billboard 200 system, that produced a Track Equivalent Album total of 20,413 units.
Combined with the album’s weekly pure sales total of 38,887, “1989” shifted a total 59,300 total consumption units this week. Up from the 51,808 moved last week, the unit total allowed “1989” to retain its #5 position on the reveamped Billboard 200.
As you may have heard recently, Taylor received somber news from her mother’s recent health screening. We at TaySwift.com (TSW) extend our prayers and thoughts to Taylor through this tough time. Click through to read Taylor’s post on Tumblr.
I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you. Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.
For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine. She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it.
The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.

Exciting news! Earlier this morning, Republic Records revealed that Taylor’s new single will be a remix of “Bad Blood,” and will be released to radios on May 19th. Check out the article below for more information!
Update: Monday morning, Republic’s radio promotions team revealed that Taylor Swift’s next single will be a remix of “Bad Blood.” The team’s website confirmed a May 19 pop radio impact date.
In the wake of Headline Planet’s related story, which fueled a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, Republic has removed “Bad Blood” from the aforementioned website.
Such a removal is neither an uncommon gesture nor a sign that “Bad Blood” is no longer slated as the next single.
Last year, as an example, Interscope’s radio website temporarily removed listings for new Fergie, Gwen Stefani and Carly Rae Jepsen singles before ultimately confirming all three to be valid.
Taylor Swift’s smash album 1989 continues its incredible chart run on the Billboard 200, as the former No. 1 set spends its 22nd consecutive week in the top five dating to its debut. On the current chart (dated April 11), the album holds steady at No. 5.
As Swift herself might sing, like in her hit single “22”: “I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.”
1989 has yet to leave the top five in its entire chart run, which includes 11 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1.
Only 11 albums have spent their first 22 weeks locked in the top five since 1963, when the chart merged its separate mono and stereo tallies (see list, below).
The title with the longest initial run in the top five is Adele’s 21, which tallied its first 39 weeks in the top five. It just claimed the mark by besting Michael Jackson’sBad, which began with 38 weeks in the top five. (21 actually spent 68 total weeks in the top five, but it fell out of the region after 39 weeks, only to return for another eye-popping top-five run.)
