Biography:

Taylor Swift is a multi-Grammy award-winning American singer/songwriter who, in 2010 and at the age of 20, became the youngest artist in history to win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. In 2011, Swift was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year. Additionally Swift has been named the American Music Awards Artist of the Year, as well as the Entertainer of the Year for both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music, among many other accolades. As of this writing, she is also the top-selling digital artist in music history.

Swift is only beginning to emerge as an acting talent, having voiced the role of Audrey in the animated feature The Lorax (2012). She also made appearances in the theatrical release Valentine’s Day (2010/I) and in an episode of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” (2000) She contributed two original songs to The Hunger Games (2012) soundtrack: “Safe & Sound featuring The Civil Wars” and “Eyes Open”.

Born 13 December 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania, Swift spent most of her childhood on an 11 acre Christmas tree farm. Her family moved to Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, when she was age 9.

At age 12, Swift was shown by a computer repairman how to play three chords on a guitar, inspiring her to write her first song, “Lucky You”. Swift’s family moved to Nashville when she was age 14 as part of her father’s job transfer. Once she was in Nashville, Swift secured an artist development deal with RCA Records. Swift left RCA Records when she was age 15 because she was ready to release an album using her own material, while RCA wanted her to record the work of other songwriters and wait until she turned 18 to release an album. At an industry showcase at Nashville’s The Bluebird Café in 2005, Swift caught the attention of Scott Borchetta, a Dreamworks Records executive, who was in the process of forming independent label Big Machine Records. Swift was one of Big Machine’s first signings.

In addition to winning the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2010, Swift also took home the awards for Country Album of the Year, Best Country Song and Best Country Female Vocal Performance. Her six-time-platinum “Fearless” album is the most awarded album in country music history. Swift released her first-ever concert CD and DVD set, Taylor Swift: Speak Now World Tour Live (2011) (V) on November 21, 2011. Her fourth studio album is scheduled to be released in October 2012.

Personal Quotes:

[On the Britney Spears perfume she wore] The coolest girl in school wore Britney Spears’ Fantasy, and I had to copy her.

People haven’t always been there for me, but music always has.

I never want to change so much that people can’t recognize me.

When I was a little girl I used to read fairy tales. In fairy tales you meet Prince Charming and he’s everything you ever wanted. In fairy tales the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that Prince Charming is not as easy to find as you thought. You realize the bad guy is not wearing a black cape and he’s not easy to spot; he’s really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair.

There’s more to life than dating the boy on the football team.

I’m intimidated by the fear of being average.

Everyone I know has had fair warning! I’ve always written about who’s spending time with me, so if they get into any kind of a relationship with me, they know what they’re getting into.

There is strength in letting bygones be bygones. It was therapeutic to write and perform. Sometimes it’s best not to say anything. I just save it for the music.

Love is fascinating. Wishing for it, pining for it and the anger that comes when you lose it. I used to think that I could figure out some pattern to love, like if you don’t text a guy back for a half-hour, he’ll like you more. But there is no pattern. Absolutely nothing is predictable in love.

No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.

Almost every time I put something out, there’s the word ‘too’ put in front of it – too pop, too country, and too rock. So I’ve kinda stopped worrying about it. I’d rather be too something than not enough something.

There’s a special place in Hell for women who don’t help other women.

I see myself as kind of this girl who writes songs in her bedroom. You can dress it up all you want and you can put together an amazing theatrical production; you can become a better performer as time goes by, and you can try to excite people. But I’m always going to be a girl who writes songs in her bedroom in my own personal perception of myself.
