Why we love Taylor Swift
Like root beer and corn dogs before her, Taylor Swift is a household name in the United States but is yet to make waves in the UK. Maybe, like root beer and corn dogs, she never will. But what’s more than likely is that she will make-it. Because maybe the 4 million records she’s sold across the pond are an indication that she’s pretty bloody good. Then again, maybe none of this matters. After all, her country twangs may have gone largely unnoticed over here, but her clear-skinned and youthful appearance has turned many a head already. Maxim, CosmoGirl and Teen Vogue have all taken notice and whacked her on the cover, and we have no reason to think she won’t be on English teenagers’ walls some-time soon.
Taylor Swift was in Valentine’s Day which was a kind of gross film, but pretty high profile, and she is just unbelievably famous. Everyone loves her – When Kanye got all up in her face during the VMA’s, everyone was all ‘Dude, stop being a dick. It’s Taylor, yeah? She’s good people.’ Taylor Swifts recipe of wholesomeness, hotness and ability to send a country ballad into the stratosphere is likely to keep her in expensive conditioner for some time, even if she doesn’t manage to turn Great Britain onto the charms of country music.
