Does Taylor Swift Belong in Country Music Anymore? [VIDEO, POLL]
Lately, Taylor Swift has been everywhere — on the news, magazine covers, the Internet, TV specials on morning shows — and that’s just for starters. Of course last week, Taylor did release her latest album, “Red,” and broke up with her boyfriend, Connor Kennedy. (Yes, that Kennedy).Like her or not, Taylor Swift is a force to be reckoned with. At the age of 22, Taylor has achieved more then some do in their entire lives. In her short life, she has earned millions and millions of dollars. She writes songs, she sings, she models for Covergirl, she wins tons of awards from the Grammy’s, CMA, ACM, Billboard, CMT, MTV, Teen Choice, American Music and is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. She is even scheduled to perform her new song ‘Begin Again’ at the 2012 CMA Awards.
Taylor does so much charity, too, and donates millions to great causes. She is a true star in every way. Even if you don’t care for her music, you can’t deny the girl has the “It” factor for sure!
But I have a question that has bothered me ever since I saw her performance in Times Square last week on “Good Morning America.” Yep, when I heard George Stephanopoulos introduce Taylor as “the biggest pop star,” I was stunned! And no, there was no mistaking it, he said pop star.
I realize Taylor has always walked that line between county and pop, but country claimed her first and quite frankly, welcomed her with open arms even though she did have that pop sound.
Personally, I have nothing but admiration for Taylor, but seems to me, she is leaning toward pop music, for sure. It can’t be denied when you listen to her latest album “Red.” So, I say pick a genre, Taylor. What do you guys think?
