Chapter 1. Childhood amidst music and Christmas trees
Taylor Alison Swift, known simply as Taylor Swift or Tay Tay (the nickname by which she is affectionately called by her fans, the swifties), was born in Pennsylvania in 1989.
- Her parents named her Taylor, inspired by singer James Taylor, with whom Swift would end up sharing the stage at a concert.
- Taylor has a brother two years younger than her, Austin Swift, who accompanies her everywhere she goes 👩🏻🤝👨🏽
- Taylor grew up in a well-to-do family. Her father, Scott Swift, worked in the stock market and her mother, Andrea Gardner, was a marketing executive, though she quit her job to take care of her children.
Taylor began writing songs and singing in contests and fairs in her hometown when she was 12 years old. It was one of her performances at The Bluebird Cafe that caught the attention of a music producer, Scott Borchetta, with whom she would end up signing her first contract.
- One of her great musical influences has been her grandmother, Marjorie Finlay, who was an opera singer and the person who inspired the song Marjorie 👵🏽.
- Before she began tasting the sweet flavour of success, Taylor worked on her family’s farm, where they sold Christmas trees. Her job was to make sure that every single tree sold was bug-free 🐛

In 2009 Taylor lived a very awkward moment when Kanye West interrupted her speech when she was receiving the award for Best Music Video for You Belong with Me at the MTV Video Music Awards.

- 22. It’s hard to imagine how many people will have played this song on their 22nd birthday 🎂

Thinking about all the different emotions that are written about on this album – they’re all pretty much about the sexy, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years. All those emotions are red. There’s nothing in between; there is nothing beige about any of those feelings.
1989, the American singer’s fifth album was released in 2014. It’s named after the year of her birth.

Chapter 5. Her darkest period and her return to the light
Taylor began to suffer a lot of criticism, being qualified as a snake by the public, so she decided to make this reptile the key to this new era 🐍, her darkest time. She disappeared for a few months from the media spotlight, focusing on her new musical work. As a result, in 2017 she released Reputation. A dark pop album.
- The video of the first single, Look What You Made Me Do, has tons of hidden messages. It became the most viewed on YouTube during its first 24 hours, with more than 43 million plays.
- The album also includes other amazing songs such as I Did Something Bad and Call It What You Want. In the latter she tells how she spent months hiding and how, metaphorically, she faced a gun fight with a knife.
