She is all that and a bag of chips, Taylor Nation

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who likes to come up with nicknames, we must admit that Vanity Fair has us beat for their September edition. They’ve dubbed Taylor the Captain of the #Girlsquad. It’s all about squads nowadays, but whatever clique you roll with please remember we’re all members of the Taylor Nation in the end.

“When you’ve got this group of girls who need each other as much as we need each other, in this climate, when it’s so hard for women to be understood and portrayed the right way in the media. . . . now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other—and just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other,” Taylor tells Vanity Fair.

On other news, the Belvoir Theatre Company was scrambling to get permission to use Shake It Off in their production of Seventeen, a play about the last day of school as played by 70 year olds. According to Music Feeds, they had gone through the proper channels – which unfortunately had nabbed them a negative. The request went through layers of label and management galore and probably never reached T-Swizzle (they’re from Australia so first you have to go through local representation). With only a few nights before the big night, they managed to get permission from the higher level – Tay herself.

The Blonde With The Sparkly 1989 Microphone has already performed one of two nights at the Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta. She’s due for one more tonight. She’s back in the US of A on Saturday, August 8, when she will perform in Seattle, Washington.

Coming up on the Calendar!
