Hello Taylor Nation,
It’s her birthday. You know who. The Princess in Red, Sparkly Dressed, Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar, Enchantress, Queen of Sparks, T-Swizzle, Outspoken One and Forever and Always Fearless One is now 23 years old. In those years, she’s proven herself more than a singer/songwriter. She’s become her own manager, producer, live on stage actress, consumate performer, savvy businesswoman and overall the most successful artist to the point that she transcends genres and becomes her own. A Taylor Swift song can be country, pop, rock, folk, americana, urban and even hip hop.
Besides her undeniable status as teenage idol and role model, she’s also become a fashion icon. Not to mention her stages rival a broadway musical, with each tour surpassing the previous one.
She was born in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania on December 13, 1989 and named Taylor Alison Swift by her parents Andrea and Scott Swift… ok you know that already a hundred times over.
In this, the day of her 23 years of age, we Taylor fans, Swifties, Taylorgeeks, Swiftholics and every other denizen of the ever growing Taylor Nation we’d like to scream and sing and shout happy birthday. Here at the Swift Agency, one guy and a bunch of make-believe ninjas that have promised for once not to steal the cake, we’re just immensely proud to call her the muse behind our blog writing. We hope one day to get to meet her personally and awkwardly stumble through words just say… you make keep writing, Tay. Thank you.
And just so we’re clear, I still expect you to change the world – but take your time, it doesn’t have to happen tonight. Have the greatest of birthdays, Sparkly Dressed 🙂
