Hey, Taylor Nation…

Elizabeth Huett & Bryan Brown are engaged. If you’re a long time reader of this blog you probably know that I’ve always been smitten with the beautiful and talented background singer, who sprouted wings of her own. It’s been an age since I’ve seen Liz, but she stays in touch and I’m always grateful she puts up with this unofficial wannabe writer with the secret agent persona. I can’t wait for her to finally release her musical craft into the world. I’m so happy she’ll have a loving partner with her.

Now, if the damn onion-chopping ninjas could stop making my eyes water for a second… I just want to say I’m really happy for you, Liz :)

On other happy news, Caitlin Evanson headlined her own concert as Caitlin Bird on Lestat’s West in San Diego, California back on December 11. Head over to WhoSay to read Jencita’s own concert review. Here’s Cait’s “Beautiful Mind” performance:

Rule-breaking according to the Sparkly Dressed. Commentary.

Question everything, Taylor Nation.

In the January edition of The Hollywood Reporter, the Enchantress once again states she always resisted the not-so-subtle pressure to become a cliche. Here’s where the public perception of Taylor is a bit distorted. The Sparkly Dressed is often thought of as a cookie-cut image created by savvy executives looking for a formula. However, when you think about it, is there any other artist that changes genres in public at the top of their game?

Garth Brooks tried it, albeit for one album. Didn’t work. Then there’s a few pop artists that are now dipping their feet into Country music a lot of years after their last pop albums appeared at the top of the charts. You can argue that Taylor already had the pop element in a lot of her albums, but actually making the statement in public that you’re not going to pursue the genre anymore is bold. As is having to convince people on her own team that each of the risks she was taking were worth it. As well as pulling her music from Spotify. Taylor may not break the law, but she certainly traces her own path. She makes waves.

I don’t see her alienating her fanbase ever, because as long as what she does is true to herself we’ll see where she’s going. I guess if you have such a view that you will only listen to music labelled as a certain category or completely abhor the pop genre, the idea of listening to 1989 would make you stop. To use an expression from Gena Camerlengo (shoutout to @GenaGabrielle!), “I found Taylor because of her music, but I stayed because of her character.”

Just to be clear, I am not that man in a suit ;)

Here’s a little bonus clip discovered via TT4Taylor. Here’s Adam Levine’s weakness for musicals exposed on NBC’s The Voice (spoiler alert: the homepage already has details about the finale). Yes, I watched this video just to hear Taylor Swift sing that line from the Rent musical. Bet you’ll do that too.

The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014: Barbara Walters talks to Taylor Swift

We’re running low on 2014, Taylor Nation.

The Blonde With The Sparkly 1989 Microphone sat down with Barbara Walters for her special Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who would have made an entire mini-series about her if he could, we were expecting her segment to be a little tad longer. Not that we’re biased or anything.

The Lightning On Her Feet mentioned that she waited until she was 21 years old to drink. She also made sure not to even appear to be drinking because she knows her every movement is watched. “That’s the reality,” Taylor told Barbara. “If I do something reckless or thoughtless or careless, or I treat someone badly, that doesn’t just affect me; it affects that person. Then, if that story gets out, or some 10-year-old sees that I did that in a news article… my actions do have ripples.”

Watch on YouTube

Taylor sees her fandom’s faith in her helping her live a better life. “It’s kind of nice thing to keep you in check to live a good life. It’s not like some gilded golden cage that people make it out to be. Living your life the ‘right way’ and trying to make ‘good decisions’ is not necessarily some horrible penalty.”
