Taylor Swift is famous. Like crazy stupid famous. She is also rather driven and blessed a voice that often sends the senses into overdrive! A singer, songwriter, actress, oh-so-sexy lady, hardcore philanthropist, and multiple award winner, she has continuously graced the biggest stages in this life and shows no signs of tiring. She is in good company as one of the best-selling music artists ever, which is to be expected after shifting a collective total of over 40 million albums and with more than 130 million single downloads to her credit.
In 2015, Rolling Stone inducted her in the 100 Greatest Songwriters Hall of Fame and over the years she has seen the quality of her work being recognized with 10 Grammys, a single Emmy, a dozen Country Music Association Awards and 23 Billboard Music Awards. She is also the proud holder of no less than 6 Guinness World Records, has twice been featured in Time Magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People (2010 and 2015), and from 2011 to 2015 has been a regular in Forbes list of the best-earning women musicians.
Anyhow you put it Taylor Swift is music/art royalty and a mightily capable one at that! But what were her early years like? Let’s go find out, folks!
The Beginnings and Invention Of The Taylor Bomber!
On December 13, 1989, stockbroker Scott Kingsley Swift and housewife Andrea Gardner Swift got an early Christmas gift. This was thankfully not dropped down the chimney by Santa and was instead delivered by doctors at a hospital nearby. Named Taylor Alison Swift, the little bundle of blonde curls was an awesome sight.
Taylor Swift has a younger brother called Austin and spent a large part of her early years on a Christmas tree farm that her dad bought from a client. At age 9, the young Taylor Swift developed a liking for musical theatre and performance. Soon after she began taking voice and acting lessons. Later, her focus shifted to country music, aided by the songs of the great Shania Twain, which made her feel fully alive, silly, high and all shades in between. In her weekends she performed at local events and festivals.
When she was 11, a documentary on Faith Hill inspired the young Taylor Swift to travel to the seat of country music- Nashville, Tennessee- with her mother so as to submit a demo tape of some covers. The studio bosses she met however rejected her, as there was nothing to distinguish her from lots of other singers singing the same thing in the same way. At age 12, Swift’s life changed for good when Ronnie Cremer who was the computer repairman and local musician took her under his wing, taught her to actually play the guitar and the rudiments of songwriting. Soon after she wrote the -fractionally cringe-worthy- song “Lucky You.”
In 2003, the Swift family hired a manager by the name of Dan Dymtrow. New York based, he got her modelling gigs at Abercombie & Fitch and frequent opportunities to show off her singing talents. Soon after, she was rewarded with an artist development deal and was frequently travelling to Nashville with her mom. To aid her budding career, her family moved once again to a placid lakefront home in Hendersonville, Tennessee when she was 14 years old.
In 2005 the bubbly Swift caught the eagle eye of Scott Borchetta, formerly a DreamWorks Records executive who was about to start up his own label, Big Machine Records. She was among his first signings, and her dad bought a 3% stake in the new company for around $120,000. Shortly after, she got down to working on her debut album. Three of the songs featured therein were written solely by her, while the other 8 were co-written along with others on her team. Upon release on October 24, 2006, the eponymously named Taylor Swift album gained critical acclaim, with reviewers shortly after running out of adjectives to describe it! In the US, the album rocketed to number 5 on the Billboard 200 and stuck around for an incredible 157 weeks. As of August 2016, over 7.75 million copies of the album had been shifted, with such success garnering her a slew of industry awards.
Fearless was her second studio album and was released in 2008. The lead single, “Love Story” reached Number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one in Australia. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and in the US was the best-selling album of 2009. The album was heavily promoted during her Fearless Tour, which incidentally grossed $63 million.
In 2009, the music video for the best performing song from the Fearless album, “You Belong With Me” was given the Best Female Video Award during the MTV Video Music Awards. Her acceptance speech is still the stuff of deep controversy today, not for anything she did or not do, but for the fact that rapper Kanye West saw fit to interrupt her acceptance speech and lament that Queen Bee deserved the award more. The resultant media attention only made Taylor Swift more famous.
That same year, she scooped up no less than 5 American Music Awards and Billboard made her its 2009 Artist of the Year. During the 52nd Grammy Awards, Fearless won the Album of the Year award, as well as the Best Country Award. Her single, “White Horse” was awarded Best Country Song and the Best Female Country Vocal Performance. Her subsequent performance at the event, however, attracted lots of flak.
Her acting debut came in a 2009 episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Her third studio album, “Speak Now” was released in August 2010. The lead single was “Mine” and debuted at number 3 on the US Billboard charts. The album was exclusively written by Swift and she co-produced all the tracks as well. The album was a massive success, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and is only the 16th album whose opening week sales reached one million copies. It was downloaded 278,000 in a single week, breaking a record and making her a Guinness World Record entrant. Another entry in the same record books was made when she became the first-ever female to get 10 track debuts sitting pretty on the Billboard 100. The Album also got her numerous awards, such as the Artist of the Year and Favorite Country Album at the American Music Awards 2011. In late 2011, she helped write “Safe and Sound” and “Eyes Open” for The Hunger Games Soundtrack Album. “Safe and Sound” won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
Her fourth studio album was Red, with the lead single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” reaching the top billboard spots in both the US and New Zealand. It also climbed to the top spot in the iTunes digital just 50 minutes after it was released. This feat earned it an entry in the Guinness World Records for the “Fastest Selling Single In Digital History.” The album itself was extremely successful and opened at number one on the Billboard 200, with its first week sales being 1.21 million copies. This was the biggest opening sales in ten years in the US and resulted in Swift being the first woman able to boast of having two million-selling album openings. This feat earned her yet another entry in the Guinness World Records. Red received four Grammy nominations, with the single “I Knew You Were Trouble” winning in the Best Female Video category at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
October 2014 marked the release of her fifth studio album, 1989. It was a major departure from the others before and was well received. So well received it was that it shifted 1.28 million copies in the US alone during the first week of its release and debuted right atop the almighty Billboard 200. This feat resulted in her name appearing in yet another Guinness World Record entry. The music videos for the album singles were massively recognized at the 2015 MTV Music Video Awards and received no less than 4 awards. At the 2016 Grammy Awards, the album carted off a trio of awards- Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video.
Her sixth album which was released in 2017 was Reputation, with the lead single being “Look What You Made Me Do.” The song topped the charts in a variety of countries, and its music video garnered 43.2 million views on YouTube within a 24-hour time frame- a new record. She embarked on a promo tour for her new album earlier this year, with the tour smashing multiple grossing and venue attendance records in the US.
The 2018 American Music Awards saw her win Tour of the Year, Artist of the Year Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and Favorite Pop/Rock Album. She has a total of 23 awards from the AMA, which makes her the most awarded female ever. The Reputation album has also received a Grammy Award nomination in the Best Pop Vocal Album category.
Taylor Swift has never been married or engaged but has dated quite a few hunks over the years. She is a noted philanthropist, an LGBTQ advocate, makes a point of not discussing her personal life and is a proud feminist. She plays a variety of musical instruments rather well, regards 13 as her lucky number and can paint nearly better than Da Vinci!
How Pitch-Perfect Is Taylor Swift?
Now, Taylor Swift is rightfully one of the most gorgeous young ladies around, with a slim, sexy body that’s sinfully curvy in all the right places. She often looks so perfect that she appears otherworldly. But is her perfection down to genes and good living, or cosmetic procedures? Let’s go find out.
Swift To The Nose
Look at this old photo and then cast your eyes on this more recent one. Yes, Taylor Swift nose appears narrower and more artistically shaped than was formerly the case. Now, skillful makeup application might be responsible for this, but there is indeed a rather good possibility that Taylor Swift underwent a nose job by some sweetly skilled surgeons.
A Taylor Swift boob job is one subject that frat guys all over are still hotly debating. Detailed examination of Taylor Swift’s before and after photos below appear to show that her then flat breasts have definitely increased in size. While this might be due to her wearing a push-up bra, it is highly likely that she underwent a breast implant surgery a little while ago. If the thought of a Taylor Swift implants sounds too far-fetched, then perhaps she has been putting oranges in her bra or something!
Just like her breasts, Taylor Swift’s booty is certainly rounder than it formerly was, as these photos make clear as a bell. Rather than being flatter than the proverbial wall, her sweet derriere now has a curve to it that could seduce a monk were she to bend over and leer! While a Taylor Swift butt job makes lots of sense, it is possible that her booty got its curve and groove due to some intense workout sessions.
Back when she was a sinfully cute kid, Taylor Swift had teeth that looked like a car wreck on the interstate! Now, a look at these photos shows that these misaligned monsters have magically disappeared. After a good look at Taylor Swift before and after teeth pics, the only possible explanation is that Taylor Swift teeth were subjected to some cosmetic dental procedures. These might be veneers or braces, but have given her a smile so perfect it could make the angels sing!
Conclusion: Swift Is The Taylor!
Taylor Swift is by all rights a very remarkable woman. She has accomplished lots over the years and at a very young age no less. As one of the more talented artists around, Taylor Swift has shattered lots of stereotypes and records, and given joy to myriads with her musical performances and devotion to humanitarian causes.
As to what do the forthcoming years hold for her no one can say. But there is little doubt that she makes impossible things look rather easy and is one hell of a human! Though her numerous exes might not feel the same!
Now that the praise singing is out of the way, do tell us what you think of Taylor Swift’s documented/alleged plastic surgery procedures. Yea or Nay? Do be a dear and let us know, while shaking it off!
