Taylor Swift in Time magazine
Our gal is un stoppable this year, and now she can add another feather to her cap with a Time magazine cover and interview.
Appearing in this November issue, Taylor talks candidly with the magazine about her life. When asked about being a role model she said,
“I don’t find a struggle with that balance, being looked at as a role model, because I think it’s a very obvious and natural thing for people to see you as, when you’re a singer. I’ve always felt very comfortable with it, for some reason. That in particular hasn’t been one of my struggles. I’ve struggled with a lot of things, but the idea that you’re living your life and it’s impacting other people, some of whom are very young, some of whom are in their most impressionable times and they’re discovering the music that tells them how they are going to live their lives and how they should feel and how it’s acceptable to feel, I think that that’s kind of exciting.”
“But it’s the same thing as living your life based on what your grandkids will say one day. I’m sure there will be things that my grandkids make fun of me for no matter what, but I’d really rather it be, “Look how awkward your dancing was in the ‘Shake It Off’ video! You look so weird, Grandma!” rather than “Grandma, is that your nipple?” I don’t make it as much about the millions of people who would be disappointed if I were to have some sort of meltdown or scandal or something that made everyone feel like my character wasn’t what they thought it was. I think more about the people in my life that would disappoint: my mom, my dad, my kids, if I ever have them. And that way it’s not as much pressure as thinking about the millions of little minds that you must be shaping. I’m trying to live my life with some sort of thoughtfulness put into my actions, but it’s not because I feel like I’m the president of the International Babysitters Club.”

Taylor Swift releases ‘Blank Space’
Taylor’s newest video is named ‘Blank Space’ where she plays a broken hearted bachelorette in this self-parody.
Off of her new album, this video shows Taylor living a life of luxury with her man as she seen dressed in many beautiful evening gowns.
In a seemingly perfect relationship, the two are seen walking together and riding horses. But that tranquility comes to an end when she suspects her beau of infidelity.
When talking to The Sun Taylor said, “I was thinking about this; boys only want love if it’s torture and a constant chase. Men want love if it’s real, right, healthy and consistent.”
“Any girl who’s really thought a lot about romance and relationships and break-ups has determined that the male species has divided into two groups, and it’s boys and men. You can have a 40 year old boy and a 20 year old man, it depends on their emotional DNA.”

Taylor touched down at Japan’s Narita International Airport in Tokyo Tuesday morning. The 24 year old singer looked in great spirits as she greeted her many fans waiting there for her.

The young singer is in Japan to promote her new album 1989,which is expected to break Britney Spears record for the biggest-ever album weekly sales by a female artist.
Taylor made a controversial move by withholding her new record from Spotify, she then removed all her old music from the service, which has over 40 million users.
Some fans called her ‘greedy’ on Twitter, and Spotify is urging her reconsider her decision saying, “We hope she’ll change her mind and join us in building a new music economy that works for everyone.”
“We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy.”
“That’s why we pay nearly 70 per cent of our revenue back to the music community.”
Taylor recently told the Wall Street Journal about her views on free music services saying, “It’s my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album’s price point is.”
