Swift: Itíd be really easy to say, ĎIím 21 now. I do whatI want. You raise your kid.' But thatís not the truth of it. The truth of it is that every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation, so make your words count.
Creator Backlash: For some reason, her setlists tend to ignore the first album entirely, outside the occasional performance of "Our Song".
Creator Breakdown: Just about all of her songs are based on Real Life scenarios, most of which were relationships with boyfriends or high school friends with whom she had parted ways. Lampshaded by Taylor Swift herself, who said, "If you listen to my albums, itís like reading my diary."
Dawson Casting: Several of her videos, such as "Fifteen" and "The Story of Us", in which she plays high schoolers. Minor examples earlier, as she wasn't that much older than her characters, but it's started getting played more and more straight as she gets older (though to her credit, she doesn't look it).
Executive Meddling: Big Machine had to get several radio stations to spam the first three singles from Speak Now for a day to get any of them to #1 on Mediabase (thus meaning they missed out going #1 on Billboard).
"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" got its huge debut thanks to a bunch of Clear Channel stations spamming the song for a day. They have done this to several other artists in 2012.
