The salient points

  • Taylor Swift is interested in two genres: country, and western.
  • And pop, but that ruins the joke a bit.
  • The video for 'You Belong With Me' won an MTV VMA award in 2009, only for Kanye West to come along and piss on everyone's chips.
  • She is obsessed with the number '13', offering this explanation: "I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th."
  • She continues: "My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first Number One song had a 13-second intro."
  • She goes on... "Every time I've won an award I've been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter."
  • Wow.
  • In 2012 Taylor (finally) went properly pop with the Max Martin-assisted 'We Are Never Getting Back Together', which was very much not country.
  • Thankfully it wasn't just an elaborate red herring either and the accompanying album, er, 'Red' was full of big pop songs with big pop choruses.
  • (And a collaboration with Ed Sheeran and that bloke from Snow Patrol).
