 Swift:It’d be really easy to say, ‘I’m 21 now. I do what I want. You raise your kid.' But that’s 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.

  • 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).
  • Fan Community Nicknames: It's mostly "Swifties".
  • Jossed: She admitted on Sixty Minutes that "Mean" was inspired by the critics of a particularly off-key performance, killing a fair amount of WMGing.
  • One of Us: See the quotes page for but a few examples.
  • Promoted Fanboy:
    • Lucas Till, who has a Celeb Crush on Swift, appeared in the video for "You Belong With Me".
    • "White Horse" appeared on an episode of Grey's Anatomy, a favorite show of Taylor's.[1]
  • Word of God: She provides the origins of each song on her website.
