I looked it up because it was driving me crazy. I read that Lea Michele was in Les Miz in some magazine article at my hair salon. Doesn't matter but at least now I know my memory isn't completely failing me

this was a rather unexpected last.fm result:


so there you go, 2011 was my Taylor Swift year. Down at the bottom we can see El Camino making a late December surge. Funnily enough, U2 is #2 on the 12 month artist rankings, but it's so diffuse that no single album hits the top rankings. The Best of 1980-1990, Pop, and Zooropa are the top 3.

I first heard it during finals week in December 2010 and it pretty much blew me away. I gotta say I'm really not a fan of their studio cuts, but each element during the live performance is just perfect.

Still, she will never be known for her live singing. But, fuck it. Keep bringing them dope studio cuts.
I dug around a little and found this combo:

So do I.




But I like this photoshoot.

The piece that Vogue did on her is pretty good, and I like that the author seems to get her sense of humor and even talks about how she's "bawdy" and is cursing in the car with him.

Here's the article. It's worth a read for anyone that's a fan.

Taylor Swift: The Single Life - Magazine - Vogue

If someone doesn’t seem to want to get to know me as a person but instead seems to have kind of bought into the whole idea of me and he approves of my Wikipedia page? And falls in love based on zero hours spent with me? That’s maybe something to be aware of. That will fade fast. You can’t be in love with a Google search.

wuuuuuut

Indeed, one of the first things she mentions is the infamous honey-badger clip on YouTube that features a deadpan 
obscenity-laced narration. Swift knows every line—though she asks if her cursing can be off the record. She may be edgier than her image suggests, but she is not Courtney Love.

I like.

The slow transition toward a Stevie Nicks/Grace Slick look isn't terribly surprising; she's been attempting to get away with dressing that way in a conservative country context for a while now. I dunno about the coy heroin-chic thing in that second pic, but at least she dumped the blinding red lipstick.

I don't care for the cover shot, but those other two are great.

Vogue put some sort of effect on a lot of these photos; it makes it seem like Taylor lives in a rich pulsating technicolor dream-plane of existence


the fireplace! is it a.....near infra-red filter?

Tigga's been listening to a little too much Mylo Xyloto.

Maybe she's been getting crazy and slipping in an extra espresso shot.

She finally responds to the Great Jaxheimer Controversy of Aught Oh Twelve:

Quote:
When I confess I played the cymbals in marching band during my freshman year, she high-fives me. “All of my favorite people—people I really trust—none of them were cool in their younger years,” she says. “Because if you know how to be cool in middle school, maybe you have skills you shouldn’t. Maybe you know how to be conniving, like, naturally.” She laughs. “There’s always that seventh-grade girl who looks like she’s 25. And you’re like, How do you do it? How do you do it, Sarah Jaxheimer?” She lets out a comically ear-piercing shriek: “Why is your hair always so shiny?!” (Later, I Google Sarah Jaxheimer, and sure enough, she has perfect, lustrous Jennifer Aniston hair.)

As I mentioned in Vogue, Sarah Jaxheimer went to middle school with me and had great hair. She's a lovely girl. Blog sites, calm down.
Some intrepid blog apparently thought they had found the Rosetta Stone character that was the villain in all of Swift's songs.
