Who Is Taylor Swift?

Taylor Swift is one of the most popular pop artists of the 21st century. She is known for writing songs that are both personal and political, and has supported many causes in her lifetime. She has donated money to help people in need, and she is also a philanthropist who supports children’s literacy.

Swift was born in 1989, in Reading, Pennsylvania. She grew up on a Christmas tree farm, and she began taking singing lessons at age nine. In high school, she played the part of Bombalurina in the movie version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats.

While she was growing up, Taylor enjoyed country music. She told Great American Country, “I listened to legends like Dolly and Patsy and wanted to be just as strong and confident as them.” She was also a fan of children’s literature and poetry. She aspired to be a Broadway actress, and she performed in Berks Youth Theatre Academy productions of Grease, Annie, Bye Bye Birdie, and The Sound of Music.

As a teenager, Taylor started to write songs. She told Vogue, “I would sit down in front of my laptop, and I’d start typing things that were either happening to me or things I could see other people going through.” She sent the songs to her record label, and the first one she wrote was called Love Story.

The song was a hit, and it helped launch Swift into stardom. It was followed by a string of other hits, including Teardrops On My Guitar and Our Song.

By the end of the decade, Taylor had a new album almost every year. She also released a number of re-records of her back catalog. Despite her move from Big Machine Records to her own independent label, Swift managed to maintain her spot at the top of the charts with albums like Lover, Folklore, Evermore, and Midnights.
