Taylor Swift Is
Taylor Swift is the irresistible songstress of love given the honor because of her faithfulness to first live the songs she sings. In a way she sings about the forgotten, the hurt, the marginalized of this world as she belts it out from the bottom of her soul. Swift sings about a kind of love that’s alluring, obsessive, painful yet fun as she has by experience become quite familiar its peculiarities. Swift is the embodiment of cupid; flawless, experienced, confident that her spellbinding siren will enhance the quality of your longing that’s never filled and thirst that’s never quenched. Her recently released “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” off her fourth album, “Red,” is an upbeat lesson on one the consequences that can follow the end of a relationship. Swift sings if with the confidence that suggests, she’s learned something she now can apply.
“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” proved once again, swift’s genius for running a business. The song sold 623,000 its first week. And with this incredible accomplishment sealing the fate of her new album, Swift has time to place her attention on her love life.
The Country music blonde cutie, appears genuinely enchanted over her new beau, Conor Kennedy. By the same token it appears the young Kennedy hunk has gaping eyes for the mythical Swift. How fortunate can a Kennedy be, to have been chosen by the quintessential love sultriest of today’s youth. She possesses all the allures attractive to men; slim, blonde, long hair, beautiful voices, an endless stream of money, and mature aggressiveness. On the other hand, the dazzling beauty didn’t do too bad herself. The 22-year-old country princess reeled in the toothy, tall, gleaming smile well mannered, immaculately tousled hair, 18-year-old son of the legendary Kennedy clan.
Prince and princess apparently made for each other.
Taylor Swift Wants
The 22-year-old love guru has been dating Conor Kennedy, son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy. As a result of her desire to be close to Kennedy, the songstress has purchased an oceanfront mansion in the Kennedy compound on Cape Cod.
The 4,400-square-foot home in Hyannis Port has reportedly been on the market for some time before Swift snatched it up for $.4.9 million.
Most girls simply move their lockers in order to be closer to their 18-year-old boyfriends, but the country darling has plunked down $4.9 million in cash for a vacation home in Hyannis Port, Mass., a mere stone’s throw from the Kennedy compound.
Swift, who was photographed Friday smooching and holding hands with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s 18-year-old son, Conor, near the family enclave in Massachusetts appeared extremely content.
Fortunately for them, Kennedy matriarch Ethel and her daughter Rory, Conor’s aunt, already approve of the relationship. At the August Television Critics Association panel about her HBO documentary, Ethel was asked if she could picture Swift, 22, as a Kennedy. “We should be so lucky,” she responded. Rory, it turns out, first met Swift at a concert. “And she’s a great friend of all of ours. We love her. She’s awesome,” she said.
Sartorially at least, Swift’s transition from her Nashville roots to the nonchalant glitz of America’s most famous family has been seamless. Swift’s style has swiftly become more casually refined, with her ditching her boho-chic dresses and boots and instead sporting preppy gear, such as a white button-down with a floral printed, calf-length skirt. Or a retro polka-dot bikini top, with equally old-school yet feminine high-waisted shorts. Topping off her recent looks: eye-catching red lipstick. “It’s because Jackie was so up to date and knew how to mix different eras together.
The Kennedy look is always classic and never trendy,” says celebrity stylist Estee Stanley, who works with Jessica Biel and Lea Michele. “She kept it ladylike and classic and never extreme. You need a great bag. You need great sunglasses and pearls.” When you think of Kennedy allure, says Chanel celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin, you think of Jackie O, who set the standard in first-lady chic. “She had a very specific style about her that at all times remained the same: clean and simple and elegant. It was about accessibility and simplicity. There was an eyebrow. A little bit of liner and mascara, and a vibrant lip color. And nothing was overly done or too worked on. Everything came together,” says Levin.
In Crocs sandals and beach shorts, Conor Kennedy, led the “You Belong to Me” singer to Mary Richardson Kennedy’s still-unmarked resting place Sunday in St. Francis Xavier Cemetery in Hyannis. Up to 15 other members of the mournful party — including Conor’s sister, Kyra, and their younger brothers, William and Aiden — accompanied the affectionate lovebirds for an impromptu memorial service at the wind-swept cemetery.
One older, unidentified man in the group brought along a pair of pruning shears to tidy up the gravesite watched over by a trio of statues, including the Virgin Mary, standing between two miniature American flags.
As Swift looked off at other distant graves of famous Kennedys, her boyfriend of two months — sporting a T-shirt reading “Chi-Town Showdown Champs” — squatted to help clear overgrown grass from the grave.
Mary Kennedy was initially buried in May near the graves of Eunice and Sargent Shriver. But Robert F. Kennedy Jr. had his estranged wife’s body exhumed in early July and moved 700 feet to a plot on a lonely hilltop on the other end of the cemetery.
In a flash of levity Sunday, the group shared a laugh in the otherwise solemn setting when Conor’s younger brothers got into a playful wrestling match.
How Taylor Swift Gets It
Swift has been spending her downtime getting to know her new beau, as well as his storied family. She is practically becoming a Kennedy historian as she quickly becomes more familiar with their family’s past. Sources say the on weekends, the couple have become inseparable.
The fascination with the Kennedys is endless, and then you mix in a beloved pop star like Taylor, who has dated a bunch of famous guys and written songs about them, so you’re immediately invested in seeing how this plays out.”
In spite of Swift’s tendency to date the wrong man, perhaps this choice will be the one and only.
With her single breaking Billboard’s top 100 records perhaps a brief review of her new track will give you a better since of her seamless talent. When you listen to her new track right away you notice it’s far less country than the country star normally produces. It features an electronic heavy production and “pop-ier” vocal styling. Even with this new change, Swift’s track is undeniably girly and lovable.
“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” definitely suggests that Swift is going to cling to that wide-eyed innocence as long as she can; and if recent rumors of her dating a 18-year-old Kennedy heir is any indication, she’s not growing up anytime soon. She debuted the song in a live web chat with fans in which she played it over her computer speakers and danced in her chair. If this song doesn’t grab you right away, just wait until you listen to it seven times in a row. Wait and tell me if you don’t start singing along in your head. It’s country pop sorcery I tell you. “I say/ I hate you/ We break up/ You call me/ I love you.”
The song is the ultimate kiss off to the boyfriend that you don’t see anymore because he said he needed space, but then he comes sniffing back around again when he wants something, promising to change. Swift has experienced that emotion and she encapsulated that universal feeling in an upbeat, empowering song.
The hook, when she declares, “We are never, ever, ever getting back together,” is a handicapping, foot-stopping, fist-in-the-air sing-along bolstered by the acoustic riff. Who knew that breaking up could feel so good? At most, it’s a sonic celebration of strength.
Swift uses the word “like” dozens of times, and has a monologue with herself and then a dialogue with her loser ex-boyfriend in the space of the song.
She even includes a couple of conversational bits; it sounds like an authentic recorded chat between her and a friend was used, too.
It’s her confessional nature, that accessible BFF-next-door vibe that makes this song one that will connect with the 15-and-under set experiencing their first kiss (and unknowingly getting set up for their first heartbreak.)
This song is exactly why Taylor Swift is the poet laureate of the teen and pre-teen set. No ifs, ands or buts.
It’s also Swift at her most poppy, with her “ooh oohs” and harmonizing sprinkled throughout. When she sings, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” you can envision an arena full of her disciples shrieking the lyrics until their lungs are raw.
The song may not gather in by droves new country fans but is will appeal to the adolescent girls that can’t wait to get home from school to listen to swift.
The industry outlet reported on Tuesday that Swift’s new single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” had been heard by approximately 30 million people in less than 24 hours since its Monday release. The size of that audience makes the infectious break-up tune among the 40 most-played songs in any genre in the past seven days.
“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” reached the top spot on iTunes in the United States less than an hour after it was released and since then has reached the No. 1 position on iTunes in 24 other countries.
Since her arrival on the music scene in 2006, Swift has sold 17.8 million albums in the U.S. and 47.6 million digital tracks, according to SoundScan. In its 2011 year-end report, Nielsen named Swift the No. 5-best-selling digital songs artist, and the top such country act, of the digital era.
The response from radio personalities so far is positive, in fact, program directors are all saying the same thing. That is that is looks like the pop-star is over-delivering again.
But that’s Swift’s work ethic. For years she has studied the industry and has only become better with each of her previous album releases.
When it comes to love and heartbreak, no one sings about it like she does.
Heartbreak is never fun, even if you’re a celebrity. No one knows this better than Swift. In fact, she was so affected by a break-up with a boyfriend that she decided to write the not-so-subtly titled “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” about the experience.
In an interview with “ABC Nightline” that is set to air this fall, Swift explained that she was in the studio working on her upcoming disc “Red” with producers Max Martin and Johan Shellbeck when a friend of an unnamed ex stopped by. “[My friend] starts talking about how he’s heard [my ex and I] were getting back together and that was not the case,” she explains.
“When he leaves, Max and Johan are like, ‘So what’s the story behind that?’ And so I start telling them the story of ‘break up, get back together, break up, get back together,’ just, ugh, the worst.” However instead of getting depressed Swift decided to turn this experience into something positive.
“Max says, ‘This is what we’re writing; we’re writing this song,’ Swift summarizes, “and I picked up the guitar and just started singing ‘we are never.’ It just happened so fast.” So what do you think of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and are you excited to hear the rest of “Red?”
