Taylor Swift!

As a Taylor Swift fan it only seemed right that I devote a post to her for her 21st Birthday.  Taylor's lucky number thirteen, which is plastered on her wrist every chance she gets, is symbolic of her birthday on the 13th December.  Once a little country star, Taylor Swift is now dominating the world, literally!  According to Forbes, in the past 12months Taylor has earned over $45 million.  Taylor has recently been named 'Entertainer of the Year' by Entertainment Weekly, 'Artist of the Year' at the CMT where Maroon 5 even covered one of her songs and not forgetting she won awards at the CMA and AMA in 2010.   Her latest album 'Speak Now' sold over 1 million copies in the first week in the US alone.  I loved her first self titled album, along with her second album 'Fearless', but 'Speak Now' is on a whole other level!  A few of my particular favourites include 'Dear John' written for John Mayer, 'Innocent' written for Kayne West, 'Mine', 'Haunted', 'Story of Us' and of course 'Back to December' written for Taylor Lautner.  'Back to December' is Taylor's first apology song written in regret.  Taylor performed 'Back to December' at both the CMA's and AMA's, and whilst I loved her gown at the CMA's her performance at the AMA's was beyond major!  She had a whole new image and she incorporated Lautner's 'response' in her performance.  And as for fashion.. Taylor not only attended Fashion Week, but recently she has covered Glamour, Seventeen, and Allure magazine.   I absolutely love her Allure cover and spread, she looks amazing!
