Hello Taylor Nation,
For all the criticism that mainstream media unleashes upon the Enchantress, you have to admit she’s always been one to prove them wrong. Although she always does it in a very subtle way, never quite caving to the pressure but always performing past expectations. If you’ve heard State of Grace, you probably can figure out it’s a highly demanding song. Even though you could hear a slight sickness in her voice, and the strain she had to put on her vocals, Taylor never misses a beat. With very few counted exceptions, she’ll march on like a trooper. The result was a great performance on the X-Factor tonight.
Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who’s coincidentally suffering from a bad cough, we just want to praise the Sparkly Dressed because it’s not the first time she’s had to power through a song amidst bad health. We hope she rests up and recovers – okey, she won’t rest up but I just hope she’s back to full health soon.
MTV News reports the Queen of Sparks will join in during MTV’s Restore the Shore relief effort to help the victims of hurricane Sandy earlier this month. Chances are it’s a taped appearance but as with everything she gets involved in, it will have a personal touch.
“As a kid, I spent my summers at the Shore, and I have so many amazing memories for that time in my life,” said T-Swizzle. “So I’m sending all my love and support to all the people in New Jersey who suffered through Hurricane Sandy. It’s time to restore the Shore.”
MTV’s Restore the Shore airs tonight at 11/10c on MTV.
