Hello, Taylor Nation!

Hope my fellow Canadians had a great Canada Day. Taylor just got finished with her concert in Knoxville, Tennesse tonight (July 1st). Her Arm Lyrics for the night were: “You won’t be the songs I could never write” from Again by NeedToBreathe.

GAC reports it will air their Taylor Swift: Behind the Video “Mean”  special this Sunday, July 3, 9/8c. “I never expected that if I wrote a treatment, a director would love it and want to direct the video exactly the way I’d written it,” the Sparkly Dressed tells GAC.

Aside from an appearance by 11-year old actress Joey King from Ramona and Beezus, Taylor also had to share the stage with Matilda the goat (no, I’m not being mean, she was actually a live goat). Apparently she was pretty good at just being there being a goat.

The prairie tundra, a school bathroom and a fashion runway were a few of the elaborate sets created all as an actual theater production. Before you tell me that the background looks fake, the truth is they were meant to have that theater look.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

No goats were harmed in the making of the video.

The Outspoken One’s Midsummer’s Night Blog. Introducing the Queen of Sparks!

That is Taylor in purple for Philadelphia Style.

Hello Taylor Nation! Here at the Swift Agency, one guy away in vacation but still here blogging, read Taylor’s latest entry A Midsummer’s Night Blog on Taylor Connect. The entry reads very much like a personal letter, because it is – if there’s something that the Enchantress does well is breaking through walls to reach her fans.

I love the entry. She remembers the night of the rainstorm in Foxboro, Massachusetts very fondly. She vows never to forget the night she danced in the rain her best dress and the audience with her. I have to mention that paragraph where she begins with “Sometimes I get scared…” That’s a very personal confidence written to the world.

Rolling Stone has published a very detailed number analysis and crunched the numbers for their article Introducing the Queen of Pop. The Sparkly Dressed came in first for album sales, awards and album reviews but ultimately she came second in the overall numbers with Lady Gaga winning the crown. That’s all good for me. I don’t want Taylor too far away from her Country roots.

To us here at the Swift Agency, Tay will always be the Queen of Sparks. Yes, I know I make up too many nicknames for her. Just testing that one out.

If you want to hear an intelligent and ruthless deconstruction of Taylor’s career you should read Metro Pulse‘s article. The post talks a lot about the carefully observed moments, analyzing not only the Enchantress’ lyrics but her studied approach to all aspects of her career. Although it does try to paint the Sparkly Dressed as a bit of a mercenary, take-no-prisoners, business woman, the author can’t help but admire her intelligence on her career choices, lyrics and general style. I find it a very interesting read. Full story at Metro Pulse.

It’s July the 1st, so Happy Canada Day to all the Canadian Taylor Nation! Taylor performs in Montreal for the first time in 13 days! I can’t wait.

The Forever and Always Fearless One played Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina on June 30. The Arm Lyrics were: “And we are always breakable, breakable. Breakable girls and boys.” from Breakable by Ingrid Michaelson. No relation to Grant, in case you were wondering.

Taylor has confirmed she will be attending the 2011 Teen Choice Awards for the first time. She has six nominations! Go vote!
