The Grammy Museum likes Taylor Swift so much it's going to keep her around a while longer.Fortsätt läsa
The Taylor Swift Experience, an exhibit highlighting the career of the seven-time Grammy winner, will remain at the Los Angeles museum through Oct. 4. It initially was scheduled to close May 10.
The exhibit's overwhelming popularity has helped increase the museum's year-to-date attendance 35% in the first quarter of 2015, with last month being the busiest March in its six-year history.
"We're excited to continue to showcase Taylor's impressive timeline of success," says Bob Santelli, the Grammy Museum's executive director, "especially as we welcome her back to Staples Center, at our home, L.A. Live, this August, for her sold-out The 1989 World Tour."
Swift's 1989 World Tour is slated to begin May 5 in Tokyo, with its first U.S. date taking place in Bossier City, La., May 20. She will play five nights at Staples Center between Aug. 21 and 26.

Pop phenomenon - Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift: megawatt talent, an extraordinary spirit, an impossibly charming blend of impishness, poise and radiance to spare. All of it combines to rock me back on my heels every time I see her. Both literally and figuratively, she’s a woman who writes her own songs. That makes for music that’s personal, of the moment and impossible to resist.I’m amazed at how much earned wisdom Taylor threads into her work. She seems tuned in to the greater good, and she embraces—thoughtfully and authentically—the chance to contribute to the world. I’m always trying to find the best words to talk to my kids (and myself) about growing up, but you can’t top her beautifully articulated advice. The haters are gonna hate, but, well, shake it off. She illuminates our inner music that lets us dance to our own beat.Ina Garten: “Taylor’s a very positive person, and I admire that enormously,” says the chef. “‘Shake It Off’ is a brilliant message in a world that can be much too critical.”
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.Also, it doesn’t hurt that she named her cat after me.

Fortune’s World’s Greatest Leaders
Taylor Swift didn’t become the highest-paid woman in the music business by accident. Pop’s savviest star has crossed swords with Spotify, embraced corporate sponsorship, and moved to secure dozens of trademarks (including phrases like “This sick beat”)—plus she has proved shrewder at honing a brand in the social media age than virtually any other person or company. And she’s done it without resorting to dumbed-down salacious gimmickry. (Swift, ahem, is arguably the anti–Miley Cyrus.) With 1989, the top-selling album in 2014, Swift’s efforts to ensure she gets paid for her music could have a huge ripple effect on the way artists are compensated in an era of free streaming.

*** No. 1 (1 week)*** "Style" Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift tallies her third Pop Songs No. 1 from 1989, and her fifth overall, as "Style" shoots 3-1. Prior single "Blank Space" reigned for six weeks and the set's lead single, "Shake It Off," led for two. She first topped the chart with "Love Story" (one week, 2009) and "I Knew You Were Trouble." (seven weeks, 2013).
1989 is the first album to yield three Pop Songs No. 1s since Maroon 5's Overexposed (three, 2012-13). It's the first by a female artist since Katy Perry's Teenage Dream generated a record six No. 1s in 2010-12.

1989 sålt fler exemplar än Red och Speak Now
After just 19 weeks of release, Taylor Swift's 1989 has now outsold both of her last two albums.
(It seems the pop music thing is working out just fine for the diva, eh? 1989 is her first all-pop album after four country sets.)
1989 sold another 44,000 copies in the week ending March 8, according to Nielsen Music, lifting the title's total sales to 4.505 million. 1989 already surpassed the sales of Swift's last album, 2012's Red (4.160 million after 124 weeks), a few weeks ago, while 1989 now jumps past her earlier album, 2010's Speak Now (4.480 million after 228 weeks) in the latest tracking week.
1989 was the top selling album of 2014 (3.661 million sold that year) and remains the top seller of 2015 so far (844,000). It famously debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 1.287 million sold in its first week.
Selling millions of albums is nothing new for Swift, of course. The new twist to her sales story is 1989's sales rate. In merely 19 weeks, it has surpassed the sales of what was her third-biggest seller, which has been on sale for 228 weeks.
Next up on Swift's personal hit list: her self-titled 2006 debut (5.492 million) and her biggest seller, 2008's Fearless (6.909 million).
For those keeping score, Swift's cumulative album sales (including her five her studio efforts, and other assorted live sets, EPs, etc.) now stand at 27.67 million. In terms of album sales, she is the seventh-largest selling female artist since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991.
