Taylor att uppträda på Britain's Got Talent
Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran will perform together on the Britain’s Got Talent 2013 final next weekend.
The pair are set to sing Everything Has Changed, the new single for American country star Taylor here in the UK.
The live final is on Saturday 8th June, when it will be revealed which act viewers have picked to win a life changing £250,000 and a spot at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.
There will be eleven acts who make it to the last live show, two from every live semi-final and one extra wild-card act, expected to be chosen from the semi-final’s third placed finishers.
And it’ll be the public alone who decide the outcome, not that the judges have exactly been good at doing that so far anyway, sending two of the three semi-final decisions to deadlock.

Exclusive First Look: Taylor Swift’s Newest Perfume
And yet, she does. The singer follows up herWonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted scents with Taylor by Taylor Swift, a scent which Swift calls “a mix of a lot of things: It’s sweet, it’s sophisticated, it draws you in. It’s really my way of translating classic, yet modern, into a perfume.”
Swift says that each of her fragrances has reflected a time in her life, so this one is a little more grown up. “My first two fragrances were more about fairytales,” she says, “but this fragrance is more about my own style, so I wanted the name to be more personal.”
The bottle was designed to reflect Swift’s “retro with a modern flair” style and features a ring of pearls as a nod to her favorite jewelry. “Pearls are the one fashion accessory that never seems to go out of style,” the singer shares. “I keep a strand in my purse, and throw them on whenever I need to dress up my outfit.”
Ultimately, Swift says, she wants her fans to be able to channel her style wherever they go, with the help of the perfume’s mix of fruits, florals and woodsy scents. “I hope that wearing this fragrance makes fans feel that any look can be classic and chic,” she says.
Taylor by Taylor Swift will be available in Ulta stores and Ulta.com in late June.

Intervju med Billboard Magazine
There were also artists on hand who are part of the new wave of younger performers taking hold at radio -- Selena Gomez performed, and Ariana Grande presented. What advice would you give them?
I never give advice unless someone asks me for it. One thing I've learned, and possibly the only advice I have to give, is to not be that person giving out unsolicited advice based on your own personal experience. I've always had a lot of older people giving me advice because I'm young, and in the end, it all comes down to who you want to be remembered as. Just be that.
How did you celebrate your victorious night?
We had a giant dinner at Nobu for all of my bandmates, dancers and friends. It seemed like everyone was there. Ed, Selena, Austin Mahone . . . We were all just laughing together and rejoicing in a really fun evening.
How late were you out? Where did you go and who did you hang with?
I flew back to L.A. that night, so I was only out till about 1 a.m. Then I got home, said "hi" to my cat, then fell asleep in seconds.
You gave a heartfelt thank-you to your fans and acknowledged them as being "the longest and best relationship I've had." How would you describe that relationship? And how did it feel to have the opportunity to thank them publicly as you accepted artist of the year?
I loved being able to thank my fans for this life they've given me. Being on tour, I get a nightly reminder of how lucky I am to get to stand on giant stages and sing for sold-out crowds. Now I have so many girls my age coming up to me and saying, "I've listened to you for seven years." It's crazy to me that we've been in each other's lives that long and it still feels new. But hey, I guess that's what real love feels like.

She wrote ‘Thank you so much for being on my tour’ and she drew on the card and all sorts of stuff, it was very personal.
She’s very sweet like that, though. From the very first night we walked on the stage, before I even walked on, she came out and gave me a hug and said, ‘Thank you.’ And I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? This is such a great opportunity — thank YOU.’ She’s one of the most real artists I’ve ever met, and to be perhaps the biggest artist in the world, I mean…

“It’s so much fun especially when she’s there,” the “22” singer said of spending last night at the Billboard Music Awards with her bestie. “It turns into sort of a dance party situation and we don’t like to think of these things as pressure, like ‘Oh, my God, everybody’s watching, how do you act?’ We just act like we do in our kitchen.
“It was a blast,” Swift continues. “It’s always so much fun when she’s a part of the whole scenario.”
Also by Swift’s side last night was her English singing buddy, Ed Sheeran.
“She likes cooking and I like eating, so it works out,” Sheeran said of touring with Ms. Swift.
Any favorite dishes? “Stir fry,” Sheeran said. “That was good. She gets her wok on.”
Swift said, “I cook for my friends all the time, and I’m really glad I got like a four-star culinary review there. That’s excellent!”
We could only imagine what Swift will be whipping up at her new $17 million estate in Rhode Island.
“She must have a housewarming at some point,” Sheeran said. “I’m going to make a wooden sign and bring it there and stick it on a door and claim a room.”
With seven bedrooms in the 11,000-square-foot mansion, he should have no problem finding some space.

TAYLOR Swift knows what time it is.
And it's not just show time, although she is on stage in front of thousands in Detroit as part of her super-sized Red tour.
"50,000 people have opted in to hear me sing about my feelings for two hours," Swift tells the mainly female crowd. "I'm told I have lots of feelings..."
Even with her tongue in cheek, those feelings are responsible for 26 million album sales and 75 million downloads in seven years - each album followed by a tour that grows in size.
It's playing to her fans where Swift is most comfortable. She can't be misquoted by nosy journalists. And she can express her sense of humour to let everyone know the diss-and-tell songwriter is firmly in on the joke.
"You never talk to him again and then you write a whole album about him," Swift says at one point, acutely aware the audience all have different assumptions about who "he" is. And they know she'll never tell.
Introducing Arms, a fan request, Swift says "I can imagine it's hard to make a relationship last. I wouldn't know ...".
She ushers Stay Stay Stay in by proudly noting "See, they don't always leave..."
Interviewing Taylor Swift is tricky. She's simultaneously open and closed. Her ability to swerve off topic during a warm anecdote is politician-like.
Personal questions are off limits, in the most polite way.
But when President Obama uses your break-up songs as a punchline to attack his political opponents, you know you occupy a rare place in pop culture.
"It's crazy to take in what's happened in the last few years," Swift says, deftly side-stepping specifically referencing her Presidential shout out. "There's no way to wrap your mind around it, no way to fully comprehend it without changing your own perception of yourself, which I'd never want to do."
"As a writer it's really important I keep my mind in check, that's the only thing that keeps me here, what comes out of my mind. So I spend a lot of time thinking about my perspective, how to look at life, how to stay happy but still feel things. Not protect myself too much but shield myself from unnecessary pain and insecurity."
Swift taps her head and jokes "You don't want to get inside here, it's very complicated".
Some of Swift's best lyrics are about the joys of falling helplessly in love (Treacherous, Love Story, Sparks Fly, Begin Again) but for the world beyond her direct fanbase, she's the bitter ex-girlfriend who gets successful revenge in song.
She doesn't mind.
"Break-ups are hard," Swift says. "And you need music to get through them. I am happy to be your go-to break-up musician.
"People like music when they're in love but they don't need it as much. You need music when you're missing someone or you're pining for someone or you're forgetting someone or you're trying to process what just happened.
"The heartbroken are a special kind of people. When you're in that spot, when you're going through it, I'll be there to hold your hand."

Billboard Magazine intervju
Looking back on the past year, what was the highlight for you?
Taylor Swift: For me, the highlight of this year was that fans went out and bought more than a million copies of "Red" in its first week of release. That was such an unbelievable feeling, knowing that many people wanted to hear about the last two years of my life. When I put out an album, it’s like me releasing my version of events, the way I felt at my highest and lowest points. Sharing that with the world is a vulnerable position to put yourself in, and having it be so celebrated by my fans was almost an indescribable feeling of joy and relief and "Oh, good, they understand me."
What song really made an impact on you this year?
I’m obsessed with "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line. It’s the catchiest thing I’ve heard in years, and I love the Nelly version too. They’re out on tour with us right now, so I get to hear it all the time. I’m also absolutely smitten with “I Love It” by Icona Pop. It’s the way reckless abandon sounds in my head. I play it right before I go onstage.
What new talent emerged or came into his or her own this year that blew you away?
Tegan & Sara have been around for years and I’ve always loved them, but I feel like they really stretched sonically on this new album, "Heartthrob." I was just so impressed by it, and there isn’t a song on it I don’t love. So I guess, in my mind, I categorize them as the new Tegan & Sara. To see artists evolve like that is so inspiring.
What to you was one of the biggest losses this year in music?
I think losing George Jones deeply saddened everyone in Nashville. His influence on country music and his legacy will last forever. On top of all of that, he was a very sweet man and I'm so sorry we've lost him. George Jones never stopped wanting to be onstage. He played live shows until the day he died, and that passion for performing is something I look up to.
What was your favorite music-related meme or viral video this year?
I like the app where you can make your own memes. I make memes all the time and send them to my friends. I also love basically any cat-related YouTube video. Yes, I’m that girl. And I thought the goat video for “I Knew You Were Trouble” was brilliant—I showed it to everyone on my tour.
Was there a surprising sound or music trend that pricked up your ears?
I love that ballads became huge hits this year and that unexpected songs and artists got lots of airplay. Ed Sheeran, the Lumineers and fun. are some of my favorites right now, and they’ve all had big hits with songs that have substance and real instruments. I like it!
What music trend hurts your ears?
I don’t like to feel like I’m in a club when I’m in my car and I turn on the radio. Anything that ceases to be a song and just sounds like house music kind of stresses me out.
How do you live like a high roller when you're in Las Vegas?
Room service. I don’t care. I love it.

Video: Taylors cameo på New Girl
Max Greenfield om Taylors dag på New Girl
Let me start by telling you something. When my publicist said, “Vulture wants to talk to you about Taylor Swift. Did you want to talk about that or the show?” I was like, “Are you kidding? I only want to talk about Taylor. It’s about time someone asked.”
I had heard rumblings that an offer was out to her a while ago, and I remember thinking to myself, I wonder who we’ll end up with? Because there’s no way she’ll do it. I mean, can we make an offer to someone more reasonable? Because when she passes two days before we shoot, it gives us a very limited time to find someone. But then! ThenI start hearing, “She really loves the show and wants to do it.” I still thought, Well, she’s not gonna say she doesn’t love the show. She’s Taylor Swift. She’s America’s sweetheart. She’s not gonna say, “I’m not a fan of that type of comedy.” And then out of nowhere, she says yes! And I’m thinking to myself, This is a real game-changer. I’m not joking around. We’re gonna have serious ratings that night regardless of the wedding. Like, who cares about the wedding now? Taylor’s coming!
So I get up on the big morning and I think, You gotta compose yourself. You don’t want to push too much to impress. You don’t want to shrink back in your shell because you’re nervous and inhibited just because a major pop star is on set. I approached it as I would any day. Except I developed a sort of coping mechanism where I started to say to myself, Well, she’s probably going to have a whole entourage. It’s gonna be a whole thing. I wonder how much Taylor Swift is gonna hold us up today. God. But then this magical gem of a human being shows up. She looks like a butterfly flying through the summer sky, and she couldn’t be more excited to be there. We go into rehearsal. She just full-on nails it in rehearsals. We should have shot it. I can’t tell you what happens, but have you seen the video for “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”? It’s got real passion, and she put passion into this. I start thinking to myself, Do you think she would be a regular on the show?
Then I was like, I’m gonna talk to Swift. You know, they had to set up the shot, they gotta do this, they gotta do that, and at one point, she was just hanging out. So let’s get to the bottom of it! I go over and we just hang in video village, me and Taylor, and we were really talking it out. Let me tell you something, I felt a real connection. I felt a real vibe between the two of us. I’m thinking, This is something that’s going well! This is somebody I’d like to hang out with outside of the show. You never know about this stuff — sometimes you meet your heroes and they end up being nightmares. Not this one. Exceeded expectations. We talked about her touring, and I asked her who she preferred playing shows to: an intimate audience or an arena. She said to me, in the sweetest way possible, “If you could fill the ocean with people, I’d like to play for them.” My heart stopped.
Not only that, let me tell you something else — she’s about six-foot-two. She totally exposed my height, which was the only off-putting thing about her. Taylor Swift, put her in a pair of heels, and it’s like, I didn’t know Heidi Klum was showing up today. When they were taking publicity shots, she towered over all of us. She’s a giant star just in every aspect of life. Anyway, she was there for a couple of hours. We said good-bye privately. It was a sweet moment. I can only speak from my point of view, and I can’t necessarily say that I know 100 percent what she was thinking, but for me the experience was that of a true, intimate, soulful connection between two people. And just, ah, if it only could have lasted just a little bit longer. I would have said, “I wish there were a future here. But you have your life, and I have mine. And they’re just too different.” I haven’t heard from her. That’s okay. It was a moment in time.
Think about everything I’ve written here when you’re watching the finale. Just imagine that this was all happening offscreen. I’ve enjoyed every day since that day with Taylor. I felt lost, and now I’m found. Thank you for letting me share it.

"The rumour that she dates a lot of people is a misconception, because in the time that I’ve known her, which has been almost two years now, she has dated two people. Fact. And in her entire life, I think she’s dated around five or six people. I don’t like when people take shots at her because I do know her personally, and I think people get the wrong end of the stick. She’s so successful, and she’s so nice and sweet to everyone that she meets, there is nothing bad to say but she was being pictured with a lot of dudes.
I think it would be incredibly unprofessional and idiotic for me to [date Taylor]. To go on tour for six months with someone and hook up with them just before you go out on tour, which is what people think we did—that’s just a really silly thing to do, because the tour would be very awkward by now, and it’s not, so that’s that."

The Making Of Highway Don't Care - musikvideo
Musikvideo för Highway Don't Care på måndag
Tim is unveiling his video for “Highway Don’t Care” with Taylor Swift, featuring Keith Urban on guitar, live to fans worldwide on Monday, May 6 in a first-ever music video premiere event with Google+ Hangout. The video, directed by Shane Drake, features dramatic and heart-stopping footage for the triple threat collaboration that is driving to the top of the charts. Currently in the Top 10 on the country radio charts, the track has already sold over 500,000 downloads to date and is the third single from McGraw’s latest album, TWO LANES OF FREEDOM. McGraw will premiere the video in Nashville at 4:00 PM CST in front of a live audience with fans from around the globe also participating in this landmark event. Additionally, the Google+ Hangout will be livestreamed on YouTube.com/TimMcGraw. For more details, visit TimMcGraw.com or Google.com/+TimMcGraw.
“This video is really more of a short film, and I think it will surprise everyone and hopefully leave a strong impression,” said McGraw. “Shane brought a lot of passion to the concept we worked on together, and it’s cool that we’ll be able to get an immediate live response from the fans when we introduce it.”
Första bilden från New Girl
For New Girl‘s relationship-centric May 14 finale, who better to cameo as a wedding guest than Taylor Swift — the music megastar who wrote the (song)book on love, break-ups, and everything in between? Swift cameos as a woman named Elaine. Though showrunner Liz Meriwether remains coy about what exactly brings Elaine to the nuptials of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (Satya Bhabha), she admits the casting was no coincidence. “I’m a huge fan of hers,” she says. “I was fully geeking out about meeting [Taylor]. I didn’t go to meet her right away because I kind of had to compose myself — there’s a 14-year-old girl inside of me.” Apparently the feeling was mutual, Meriwether recalls: “She was quoting lines to us from the show. It was a really exciting night.”
Star Jake Johnson notes that Swift was “very good,” and jokes that Swift’s triple threat status was “a little bit frustrating. She came in and is really nice. It’s not an easy scene. There were probably 70 extras there — though I’m sure she performs to so much bigger [crowds] than that on a regular basis. She had, like, a little monologue and delivered it perfectly. Liz gave her alternative jokes and lines, she delivered them all perfectly. It was frustrating!”
Meriwether also compliments Swift, saying, “She kind of came and nailed it. We love bringing in guest stars, but we really try to make it feel like they’re part of the show and it’s not just stunt casting.” After Meriwether & Co. have given her punchline shout-outs and featured her song “22″ in previous episodes, this cameo brings the singer-songwriter full circle — with added value for fans of both: ”She did a little bit of a riff on one of her songs,” previews Meriwether.
