The singer-songwriter Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989, and has released a number of albums across multiple genres. Swift is best known for her storytelling songs, which often draw inspiration from her own life. Swift moved to Nashville at the age of fourteen and signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Big Machine Records. She released her self-titled debut album in 2006, which received positive reviews and earned the singer multiple awards.
Her breakout year came in 2009, when she embarked on her first headline tour and sold-out venues across North America. Swift won four Grammy Awards that year, including album of the year and best country album. Swift was interrupted while accepting her award by Kanye West, who claimed that Beyonce should have won. The singer was later granted a special Grammy Honor and invited to the stage by Beyonce for a speech.
After 1989, Swift took a hiatus from the limelight, but she later resurfaced in a highly publicized trial against a former radio host, David Mueller. The singer had accused Mueller of groping her in 2013 and countersued him. The jury ruled in Swift’s favor, and the song went on to become the highest-selling American LP of the year. However, Swift’s case remains controversial.
Taylor Swift has been romantically linked to a number of celebrities, including actors. She has dated the Jonas Brothers’ Joey Jonas, but has never publicly acknowledged her relationship with him. Despite these scandals, the singer still continues to work on her career and music. After a brief breakup with Lautner, she has dated Tom Hiddleston, a member of the cast of the movie “Twilight.”
The singer’s success in music continues to rise. In 2015, Swift’s album “Speak Now” became the No. 1 song on the iTunes charts. In addition, the album’s songwriter/artist award helped the singer achieve her No. 1 status. She also has a tour planned with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. In September, she performed her single “Dear John” at the Stand Up To Cancer benefit.
