I have a confession to make...

...I have a girl crush on Taylor Swift.


There, I said it. I know a lot of people think she “couldn’t hit a note with a bus.” While that might be true, I just absolutely love her music. She makes music that is so relatable and about subjects that could really apply to most age groups. She speaks to the kids actually going through these things, while also managing to make everyone else remember how it felt.

I think what I enjoy the most is that her songs are honest. They are about her real life situations. I saw an interview where she said she will never change herself as a song writer. She said she always wrote about the real things happening in her life, and it doesn’t bother her that people are just more interested in the subject matter now than when she was 12. 

I wish she had been around when I was in middle and high school. It almost makes me jealous that kids today can listen to her lyrics and have someone to help them get through situations in their lives. Not many artists do that. The Backstreet Boys and Brittany Spears were definitely not singing about things like how to make it through a broken heart, the feeling of running into an ex, or having to tell someone you made a mistake. And pretty much every other artist on pop stations right now are not doing that either. It's so cool that country music crossed over to main stream stations.

No matter what anyone says about it, her music makes me so happy. She makes me remember what it was like to believe in fairy tales. Turning my ipod to Taylor Swift will instantly make my day better. I’ve been having a lot of Taylor Swift marathons lately!

  2. You have serious channeled my inner-most secret thoughts. Yesterday morning, my little sister called me on my way to work, and I told her she interupted me blaring "MINE" by TS and she laughed at me. I can't get over her songs. I sing them to the top of my lungs. And I'm with you - where was she when I was "Sixteen"??

  4. She's coming to New Orleans for a concert in October. It seems so far away, but I'm totally going to attempt to buy tickets as soon as they come out! I saw that her first 10 US concerts sold out within minutes. Not surprising, but I want to go so badly. And probably rock a T Swift tshirt like the rest of the teenyboppers!
