Taylor Swift shakes off the past and looks forward to a successful future

Taylor Swift’s album 1989 sold 1.2 million copies in the first week of it being released. 1989 is Swift’s first full pop album, and was an obvious success.

Many people know Swift for her songs about her crazy relationships or ex-boyfriends such as Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner, and many others. However, this album is more about the media she deals with.

Though Swift has based many songs on her relationships, she gets a lot of attention from the media about it and is criticized very much. She argued that it’s ok if people like Ed Sheeran have a song about an ex it’s fine, but if she does it, she is “crazy.”

Some speculate that her hit single, “Shake It Off,” is about the media and to forget the haters, maybe even some remnants of her failed relationship with Styles. I think it is an incredibly infectious song to jam to on the radio. Despite the meaning behind Swift’s songs, there is always beautiful music and a talented voice behind it. People are starting to get passed what was in Swift’s past, and are looking at now and her future. Her album 1989 has already become an amazing success, and this will open up so many new opportunities for her. Swift calls 1989 her “most sonically cohesive collection.”

Swift has won 7 GRAMMY’s previously, and was awarded this year by Billboard to be the Woman of the Year for 1989’s success. She has also been named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time magazine.

Swift has a long career ahead of her, where she might not be the best dancer, but she will always provide catchy, fun, and relatable songs for her fans.
