You shorties never thought I dreamed about rapping hardcore, Taylor Nation.

The Queen of Sparks is included on TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People and gets an mini-essay written for her by one of her own idols, Mariska Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson. No, the other Olivia Benson in Law & Order: SVU. One of the most beautiful things I can quote is this statement: “Along with her staggering list of accomplishments, perhaps the most exciting thing about Taylor is that she’s just getting started with what she plans to mine from her fierce, curious, boundlessly talented and beautiful heart.”

It also didn’t hurt Taylor named her cat after her.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar That Will Eventually Go To The Country Music Hall of Fame But Not Yet has won a Shorty Award for best Singer. Her reaction also wins her an award for Most Adorable Person That Is Not A Cat.
