“I respect her as an artist. She writes most of her music, and she deals with the critics and everybody. She’s just a sweet person, and the way she treats her fans is really an inspiration to me and how I want to treat my fans. She’s very involved and, I mean, look at her shows. … I just think she’s a great role model for kids. I think girls that look up to her are looking up to a good girl, and she’s an amazing artist.”—Cole Swindell on Taylor Swift (x)
“You’ve got to love Taylor Swift and what she has done. I equate her with Bruce Springsteen. I wrote a piece about her in Country Weekly magazine a while back, about an older guy’s feelings for Taylor Swift. I can’t identify too much with some of the songs she sings — I’m 65 years old, for crying out loud — but do I love her? Yes, I do. I think she’s a great example for kids these days. Do I think she’s gonna get bigger and bigger and bigger? I’d say the sky is the limit for Taylor.”—Joe Bonsall on Taylor (x)
She'll work with all 4 coaches this time and all the artist left at that point. when chris martin served as one he was there for like 2 or 3 episodes i think. it's definitely a bigger role than last time.
Taylor Swift Joins The Voice as a Season Seven Advisor
The “Shake It Off” singer, 24, will be joining the upcoming seventh season of the NBC competition show as an advisor. A source tells Us that Swift will serve in the same capacity that Coldplay singer Chris Martin aided the show in its sixth season, advising contestants across all four teams.
Swift will be working with veterans Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as well as new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, who were added to the lineup for the upcoming season.
"Taylor was an absolute pleasure to work with," a source tells Us of Swift’s contribution to The Voice. “She had great feedback for all the contestants. She made for an amazing mentor.”
Swift, who previously performed on the fourth season of The Voice, joins previously announced advisors Stevie Wonder (who is working with Levine), Gavin Rossdale (working with his wife Stefani), Little Big Town (working with Shelton), and Alicia Keys (working with Williams).
The next season of The Voice kicks off on Sept. 22, one month before the scheduled release of Swift’s upcoming fifth studio album 1989. Led by the hit single “Shake It Off,” 1989 will hit stores on Oct. 27. (x)
Is Taylor's hair naturally curly or straight? I feel like her hair is actually straight and she just curled it to fit into the big country hair styles.
Yeah it’s curly and you can see that in childhood videos and stuff. She did used to curl it though too, it wasn’t just naturally perfectly shaped curls when you saw her performing and at award shows and stuff :P I think this is kind of like her natural look during a day after the beach.
“Her present to me was a weird one because it must have taken so long to do. It just came out of nowhere! Why Drake? Because the struggle is definitely real. And we all started from the bottom…and now we’re just a little bit higher!”—Ed Sheeran on Taylor Swift’s knitted “Drake” needlepoint gift to him. (x)
Do you think its worth it to pre-order the 1989 merch package from her website, or would it be better just to buy the deluxe cd at Target on the release date?
Target Deluxe on release date = $13.99. Merch package is a rip off, it’s literally just the standard CD with your choice of an overpriced shirt totaling from $39.99-$59.99 depending on which shirt you pick.
