everybody else is doing it… so, can we just stop for a minute and talk about Taylor Swift?…

She’s everybody’s favorite, current “it-girl.” She’s the one adults the world over loved to hate. For a long time, she had that cutesy, curly haired, sweet look.

And now… Now, she’s the young woman celebrities and civilians alike hate to love.

I’m sorry that I’m not sorry, but I have completely fallen in love with T. Swift.

I hear “Welcome to New York” and “Style” ringing in my head as I walk to the bus. When I’m checking homework in class. As I’m moving things around my apartment in a playful attempt to clean and organize. T. Swift has totally overtaken my brain and 1989 has become the soundtrack of my life this week.

I’m totally obsessed. I freaking love her.

Leading up to the release of her most recent album, 1989, she hosted “listening parties” in her home for some of her “biggest fans.” She let them listen to the entire album ahead of the rest of us and baked them cookies and stuff. Cookies. T. Swift baked cookies.

She leaves comments on her fan’s blogs, Twitter pages, and Instagram accounts. She sends handwritten notes. She stops and takes impromptu photos with fans while she’s running in the park. That’s pretty sweet of her.

And then I read today that she sent a personalized care package to a fan whose blog she follows… The fan wrote she was experiencing a rough time, and T. Swift’s “people” (because they all have “people,” you know) got in touch with the fan, asking for an address. Ms. Swift then sent her a few gifts for her new home, along with a handwritten note. Most of us are lucky to get any kind of handwritten note… And Taylor Swift is writing them for people she doesn’t even know. (And sending them adorable, thoughtful gifts.)

(Apparently? She also bought one of those adorable mini BMW cars for a fan’s two-year-old son. How adorable is that?!)

Now let’s talk about how she’s found her voice amongst all the crap that the media has enjoyed throwing at her.
