Good week for… Taylor Swift. Just days after tearing up the Victoria’s Secret catwalk with hits including Blank Space, Billboard has named the US singer its Woman of The Year - and put her on its cover to celebrate.
There’s no denying that 2014 has been a breakthrough year for Tay Swift this side of the pond, topped by her recent success in the charts: 1989 scored the best first-week sales worldwide for an album since 2002.
But it’s not just catchy lyrics and excellent personal styling hat make her a force to be reckoned with.
She’s friends with, like, everyone for a reason.
As fellow pop star Lorde explains to the mag: ‘Taylor is like this force of protective energy. She looks after everyone she knows.
‘We’re both interested and involved in the workings of the industry. I have this thing in my head that she should do seminars – ‘Swift’s 13 Steps’, or something.’
Now that, we’d like to see.
