Early succes: in 2006, at 16 Taylor released her fist single "Tim McGraw" about one of her ex-boyriends. Love has been a theme of her music ever since. Taylor's public appreciated her intimate, autobiographical songs and in 2008 she was nominated for her first Grammy award.Then at the 2010 Grammy awards, she became the youngest singer to win Album of the Year at the age of 20.
International start:the talented singer now has an international reputation. Taylor's third album, Speak Now, was Number One in the USA, and Taylor has also toured North America, Europe and Australia.
Taylor loves playing live shows and speaking with her fans.
"Fans are my favourite thing in the world" she says. " I'll hang out with them after the show. I'll hang out with them before thw show."
Love life:recentrly, Taylor has been the subject of speculation about her relationship with One Direction's Harry Styles. She says she is embarrassed that people talk about her love life. In the past, Taylor has had lots of famous boyfriends such as Joe Jonas, Taylor Lauthner and Jake Gyllenhaal. So does she always go out with famous boys? "I really don't have any rules when it comes to height, age, career choice, she says.
Positive influence :like other pop artists such as Shakira, Taylor Swift likes to help others. She gives money to schools and recorded the Hope for Haiti Now album for the victims of the disaster there. She also has a good influence on young people: Taylor avoids alcohol and cigarettes. " I don't drink to get drunk because tha'ts just not cute" and I don't want to smoke anything because I sing.
Taylor the actress:Taylor Swift isn't just a contry singer... she is an actress too! Taylor has had roles in Valentine's Day, The Lorax and the TV series CSI. She also played herself in the film Hannah Montana: The Movie. With a successful music career and all her Grammy awards, perhaps the next step for Taylor Swift is to win an Oscar.
