Taylor Swift: Music, Movies and Mansion

Latest Buzz on Taylor Swift

My ten-year-old daughter introduced me to this 20-year-old artist from Pennsylvania with a four-year-old career in the music industry. It was my daughter’s admiration to her kind of music and her looks that made me want to get to know her more. Being familiar with her songs seemed not enough support to my starstruck daughter, so I need to do more. Together, we searched for her biography in the internet, looked for the lyrics of her popular songs, watched her music videos, and at the end of it all, I too became a fan of the beautiful singer, song writer, guitarist, actress, ahhh...an overall total performer, Taylor Swift.

Much has been written about her biography and this popular young lady doesn’t need much introduction, so this hub goes straight to the updates on her music and acting career, and a little peak on her new dwelling.

This multi-awarded singer/song writer has 17 wonderfully written songs in her portfolio. Oh make that 18 to include her newest single ‘Today was a Fairytale’, which is the end title theme of the movie Valentine's Day. Copyright for this song is owned by Big Machine Records and only the lyrics can be shared for now. This song is exclusively available at iTunes and sales skyrocketed to #1 hours after its release in January 19, 2010. Download the song through this link.

'Today was a Fairytale' Lyrics by Taylor Swift

Today was a fairytale
You were the prince
I used to be a damsel in distress
You took me by the hand and you picked me up at six
Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale
I wore a dress
You wore a dark grey t-shirt
You told me I was pretty when I looked like a mess
Today was a fairytale
Time slows down whenever you’re around

But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale
You’ve got a smile that takes me to another planet
Every move you make everything you say is right
Today was a fairytale
Today was a fairytale
All that I can say is it’s getting so much clearer
Nothing made sense until the time I saw your face
Today was a fairytale

Time slows down whenever you’re around
Yeah yeah

But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale

Time slows down whenever you’re around
I can feel my heart
It’s beating in my chest
Did you feel it?
I can’t put this down

But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale

Right now, if I would have to choose just three to name my favorite Taylor Swift songs, then it would be ‘Our Song’, ‘You Belong with Me’ and ‘Love Story’. Why not ‘Today was a Fairytale' you might ask? I haven’t heard the melody, that’s why. I am marking January 31, 2009 as Taylor Swift brings the world premiere performance of ‘Today was a Fairytale’ during the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards where she is nominated for eight awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for the song 'You Belong with Me', Best Country Album and Album of the Year for her 2nd album 'Fearless', and Best female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song for the song 'White Horse.'

Taylor Swift’s 2010 schedule is obviously busy as she goes into the second leg of her ‘Fearless’ concert tour.  There are 22 concert dates from February 4 to April 1, 2010 covering Australia, Japan and USA and almost all tickets are sold.  Check out http://www.taylorswift.com/tour to take your chances of getting a concert ticket.  Canadian Taylor Swift fans will be visited in May 2010.

VALENTINE'S DAY movie

The official soundtrack album for New Line Cinema's Valentine’s Day will be released on February 9, 2010 on CD and online, a few days before the movie hits the screen on February 12, 2010. In this movie, Taylor Swift played Samantha Kenny, an athletic teenager deeply in love with Tyler Harrington portrayed by Taylor Lautner. Their love story is part of the intertwining stories of the heart that took place over the course of one Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day, directed by Gary Marshall, is an all-star ensemble composed of Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts and Taylor Swift.

This movie will be Taylor Swift’s second after she played a cameo role in Hannah Montana movie last year. With the anticipated success of Valentine’s Day in the box office, more movie offers for Taylor Swift are sure to follow. Here’s the official movie trailer with Taylor Swift in it. What a tease!

With all her success in music and movies, Taylor Swift is now one of the highest paid country music stars in the world.  At 20 years old, she earned a whooping $17 million last year and this made her the 69th most powerful celebrity according to Forbes magazine.

Although Taylor Swift was rumored to have bought Michaels Andretti’s $3.4M country mansion, this was never confirmed. A penthouse in NashvilleFlorida measuring 4,062 sq.ft. with 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and amounting to $1,990,000 was her first confirmed major real estate investment. Other features of her new home include double height living room wrapped in floor to ceiling glass and divided into two seating areas by a huge freestanding fireplace, wrap around balcony, kitchen, dining room and a wine storage room, a study overlooking the living room, an entertainment room, laundry facilities, and a master bedroom with twin vanities, a glassy bathroom with separate tub and shower and a spacious walk in closet.

She is planning to make fantasy a reality in her new home by redesigning the interior. Taylor said, “It’s going to be my fantasy world. There’s a pond in the living room… The pond is a moat around the fireplace and may possibly have koi fish in it. You step on a stepping stone in the pond in order to get on a spiral staircase, which takes you up to the human-sized bird cage observatory. They’re delivering a human-size birdcage, which I’ll put a brass telescope in. The ceiling of my living room is painted like the night sky.” -The Financial Express

You are right about that mare....she seems clean. She's pretty but a bit clumsy...she broke one of her trophies when she tried to pose holding four of them during grammy night, tsk, tsk, tsk. She's like a child and I like her that way...so real.
