Taylor Swift brief biography
Taylor Alison Swift is a 23 year old American recording artist (singer, songwriter, musician) who grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Pennsylvania. As a child, she even had her own pony (often known as 'every little girl's dream).
When she was just a toddler of three or four years old, she approached people lounging on the sands of the beaches she went to visit. She precociously introduced herself and said something to the effect of "Hi, my name is Taylor... I am going to sing for you now." She would commence with singing songs from the "Lion King" and other songs.
Watch out. She might write a song about you.
Taylor Swift got her start in the music business at an early age and a huge following of young girls emulated her and aspired to be like her.
Many of her songs have been break up songs about bad relationships where she names the guy she did not get along with. She has been known for doing this and it has become something comical that people often allude to. At the 2013 Billboard Music Awards show (where she owned the night, a big star taking home many of the awards), the host of the show was Tracy Morgan who said to the audience that they should be careful. A woman might write a song about you. The camera shot over to Taylor Swift and she nodded her head.
Indebted to her parents
Taylor Swift acknowledges that she owes much of her success to the support of her parents who allowed her to follow her lifelong dreams and accommodated her in her pursuits from an early age. Her mom helped with managing her career and traveling with her.
Featured in magazines
In magazines such as Marie Claire where Taylor Swift has been interviewed, her mom is regarded as stoic and watching protectively from the sidelines while also seeming to be amazed by her daughter's talents and abilities if not surprised by the sensation and phenomenon Taylor has become.
Since achieving success in her career, Taylor has been linked to dating several different men in Hollywood (such as John Mayer) and some not so famous and perhaps writing songs about them.
Nevertheless, moms and daughters alike generally seem to continue enjoying Taylor Swift's music very much as it is not overly sexual, inappropriate or problematic in other ways.
Country music and pop music
Taylor Swift is adored by small town conservative types who love country music and others alike. Her talent has crossed over and her music is hitting the tops of the music charts in both country music and pop (popular) music categories.
Great Wealth and Real Estate
As Taylor Swift catapulted to great fame and wealth as a singer and songwriter, she has purchased new homes for her parents and herself. She owns several homes including a vacation home in the Northeast United States and a house in Nashville, Tennessee.
According to celebritynetworth.com, Taylor Swift's current net worth is $105 million.
Regarding Nashville, Tennessee, Taylor Swift has been said to claim that she always knew that Nashville is where it is at for country music and she needed to have a presence there, physically. That is why she chose to own property there and take up residence.
A little more about Taylor Swift
In reading the candid interviews in magazine articles like those in Marie Claire magazine, you can learn little obscure things about Taylor that you might not learn from the typical online Wikipedia or other biography. For example:
- She reported in a Marie Claire interview, her love for the colors turquoise and brown in her fashion sense and how she would enjoy decorating her room in this combination of colors.
- She also loves shopping at Target and items in her home décor that seem like they might have been very expensive and unique may have in fact just been purchased at Target.
