Billboard Woman in Music Event
Taylor Swift had a important message to get out when she recieved Billboard's Woman of the Year honor -- she's continuing her fight to find a new way forward with respect to the industry, selling albums and streaming her music.
"Being named Billboard Woman of the Year for a second time is this amazing early birthday present," Swift said in her opening remarks. "I turn 25 at midnight tonight, and I fully intend to to celebrate like it's 1989." After only polite audience laughter, she added, "I knew it was a bad joke when i wrote it, and I just did it anyway!"
Prior to Swift's speech, Ingrid Michaelson performed Swift's 1989 track "Clean," and Swift fan Gena Camerlengo (who Swift superfans will recognize as the woman whose bridal shower Swift memorably attended) introduced her. "I've been fortunate to share in her transformation," Camerlengo said. "Her ability to write and perform is incredible, but it's her impact beyond music where she really shines...I found Taylor because of her music, but i stayed because of her character."

Time Top 10. album och låtar
4. 1989, Taylor Swift Forget the record-shattering sales, relentless promotional appearances, and Spotify squabbles — it’s all just background noise. Taylor Swift’s 1989 is the best mainstream pop album of the year, packing more hooks and thrills pound for pound than anything else on the charts. A longtime master of heartbreaking lyrics, Swift proves on 1989 that she’s just as nimble with sound, working with top-shelf collaborators to craft a bright, bold LP that’s deliriously strange but still slick enough for Top 40. Country’s premiere princess is now pop’s heir apparent.
2. “Blank Space,” Taylor Swift “Blank Space” hit No. 1 at radio on the strength of its hook — a euphoric singalong chorus so dulcet, it could only have been concocted by a Swede — but the song’s true genius is in its lyrics. This is songwriting at its most brilliantly conceptual: “Blank Space” gives Swift a frame to riff on her man-eating public persona and simultaneously tell a story that feels intimately relatable — after all, who doesn’t feel like a rose garden filled with thorns from time to time? Swift has never been so playful or self-aware.

Taylor får Dick Clark Award for Excellence
Taylor Swift is getting a special – and new – award from the American Music Awards.
Dick Clark productions announced Friday that Swift would receive the Dick Clark Award for Excellence at Sunday’s show.
Swift is receiving the honor for her record-setting sales. Titled “1989,” her fifth album that was released last month, became the singer’s third album to sell more than 1 million units in its debut week.
Dick Clark’s widow, Kari Clark, said in a statement that “the first time Dick saw Taylor perform, he knew she was something special.”
Swift will kick off the awards show with a performance of “Blank Space,” her new single which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week.
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together i Pitch Perfect2
EW’s latest cover is an all-access, exclusive peek behind the scenes of next summer’s highly anticipated musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2. The movie takes place 3 years after the first film, with the Barden Bellas ruling the collegiate a cappella world. But then something happens. “They are prohibited—and I won’t say why—from competing at the collegiate level,” says director Elizabeth Banks, who produced the original and appears again as judge Gail. “So they are sort of forced to enter a professional world competition in order to be reinstated.” Here’s what else you need to know about PP2.
[…] The sequel’s version takes place in the mansion of an a cappella aficionado played by David Cross (Arrested Development). You will hear a cappella versions of Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats.”

Taylor fortsätter att toppa Billboards listor
Taylors nya singel Blank Space gjorde framsteg på Billboard Hot 100. Låten gick från 18:e plats till en 13:e plats.
Även 1989 fortsätter att slå rekord för Taylor. 1989 fortsatte att ha höga försäljningssiffror under sin andra vecka jämföt med Red och Speak Now, där försäljning sjönk för båda albumen med över 50 % under andra veckan. Så 1989 behöll försa platsen på Billboard 200 chart även denna veckan.
