Why Taylor Swift Is More Than Just A Pop Star

Taylor Swift is a role model for men and woman of all ages.

Why Taylor Swift Is More Than Just A Pop Star

Taylor Swift is a lot more than a highly awarded musician. There is a lot more to the former country music star, and now pop star. Being a fan since her curly haired, country music days, I have seen Taylor grow to be more than just a favorite music artist of mine. She is a great role model to men and woman of all ages.

She embraces the 'haters' and rumors spread.

Most recently Taylor poked fun at the press and ex-boyfriends calling her 'crazy' by her song, "Blank Space." Not only do the lyrics poke fun at these rumors, but her music video for the song also shows her embracing these rumors. In the music video, Taylor, can be seen making crazed facial expressions, taking a golf club to a car, and stabbing pictures of her 'ex-lovers.' Bad break-ups can unfortunately, result in ex-lovers spreading rumors about one another. Taylor shows that instead of retaliating and adding fuel to the fire, hold your head high and don't let the insults get to you. By 'embracing' her inner crazy Taylor showed that regardless of the rumors written about her she is just going to keep doing her, and that's something we should all strive to do.

She doesn't forget about her fans.

Last December I came across a video of Taylor hand wrapping and picking out gifts for some of her fans (video provided below). This is just one of many ways Taylor has gone above and beyond to reach out to her fans and remind them that she is thankful for them. Taylor is also known for making huge efforts of reaching out to fans on social media. For an artist as widely recognized as herself, it is easy to forget about the fans that have brought you to where you re now, but it is apparent Taylor is thankful and makes a huge effort to show it.

She speaks up for what she believes in.

Taylor Swift is not afraid to voice her opinion; in fact recently she even used her voice to make a statement to the giant company, Apple. Apple wasn't paying artists for their music during users three-month free trial periods. Taylor threatened to withhold 1989 from Apple if they did not change their business platform, through a message on tumblr.

"These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child. These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much. We simply do not respect this particular call."-Taylor Swift

Apple was quick to respond, letting the world know they would now be paying artists during these free trail periods.


Taylor is a role model for all ages. From embracing her inner crazy-cat lady, to being seen awkwardly dancing at award shows, there is much to love and be inspired by. It is great to see artists like Taylor do more than contribute to the world musically.
