Taylor Swift - America's Favorite Sweetheart (photos)
Woman of the Year - 2011
Taylor Swift has had a fast moving career punctuated with a tumultuous love life. This super star has been on the rise since she endeared herself to everyone in the world in 2006. Swift, born Taylor Alison Swift in Reading, Pennsylvania on December 13, 1989 has rocked the nation with her intoxicating beauty, unending talent and unspoiled character. She glorified the cover of Billboard Magazine recently and has been named, "Woman of the Year - 2011".
'Speak Now' was one of the hottest concert tours last year and that comes as no surprise to her fans. Swift has been performing since the age of 10. At her current 22 years, that is more than half her young life. She began singing and performing in her home town at festivals and local events. Her big break came when she sang at the Blue Bird Cafe and was discovered by Scott Borchetta who signed the 14 year old with Big Machine Records.
Swift's first album, which was self titled, went platinum. While her beauty may draw the fans in - her voice, talent and charisma keep them hypnotized. She is very well known for keeping in touch with her fans via MySpace and Facebook. According to Forbes, Swift is ranked number 69 on the list of the most powerful celebrities, proof that she is adored by all.

Kanye West will forever be known as the rapper who ripped the microphone away from Swift during her acceptance speech for the best female video award and announced that Beyonce should have won the award. Bad move, West! Pink appeared to give him a hostile glare as she passed later during the ceremony. He apologized on the Jay Leno show but when Swift was interviewed on The View, she told the ladies he had never tried to reach out to apologize to her. That moment will possibly be the very one moment in his life that he is best remembered for.
Swift is very well known for name dropping in her music. She doesn't apologize for this and explains that is how she writes. Swift has talked about how she went through periods in high school that she didn't feel as if she fit in. She felt more comfortable in the business and music industry than in a class room with her peers.
Taylor Swift has been linked with the hottest of all film and music stars such as Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, John Mayer and has most lately been associating frequently with Will Anderson from Parachute. Rumor has it that they are just friends though they have been reported to be seen together a few days each week.
Taylor Swift has broken records and set records in music history. She has been nominated for dozens of awards and has won many of them. Swift was the youngest star to ever win the prestigious Grammy for Album of the year in 2008. She was named Entertainer of the Year in 2011.
In addition to her career in music, Swift has sideswiped Hollywood like a cyclone and has shot straight to the top of the charts. Swift has been offered a role in the longest running musical since 1985 when Les Miserables opened in London. Swift trumped several Hollywood stars for the role such as Lea Michelle and Scarlette Johansson. If she chooses to accept this misson she will star opposite of favorite celebs such as Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe and Anne Hathaway. Filming is set to being in March. Swift will also surely turn "The Lorax" into a hit starring as Audrey in the animated film that will also be released in March.
Swift came to St. Louis and my youngest daughter begged me to get tickets. The tickets to her concerts sell out in approximately 2 minutes. I resorted to the usual means and bought tickets through Stub Hub. I paid a lot more than the face value of the ticket but I did purchase 2nd row seats and this concert was well worth the price. My daughter stood next to the railing, watching her favorite female super star singer and I know that it is more than she could have dreamed it would be.
As a parent, I think Taylor Swift is one of those lovely young women that can handle super stardom without the danger of rehab. Taylor Swift is America's Sweetheart and she is here to stay!
