i heart T.S.
Am i the last one to get on the Taylor Swift bandwagon? For the past year i've seen her win a number of prestigious music awards, hear her on the radio (romeo romeo, yes yes i get it), and see her face almost EVERYWHERE. But never once did i bother to actually listen to her music b/c, well, let's be honest, i wrote her off as another tween/never-gonna-be-Britney-Spears/Miley Cyrus-esque pop star. That is until i saw an E! True Hollywood Story on young stars (don't judge!) and learned that Taylor is not only sweet and down-to-earth, but she actually WRITES HER OWN MUSIC. Huh? That's pretty much unheard of when it comes to these young/of-the-moment pop stars. Then i gave her latest album, Fearless, a listen and well, the rest is history. It's been on repeat for the past couple weeks. It's the perfect sunny, breezy Spring day, riding in your car with the top down (ok with the sunroof open), belting at the top of your lungs and loving being a girl type of music. Not to mention i love the fact that she writes about every boy encounter she's ever had and is the first to admit it. Je l'adore. My faves include: "Hey Stephen", "You're Not Sorry", and "The Best Day". If you enjoy the Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, etc., then i think you'll dig her as much as i do.
