She has been staggeringly, life-dominatingly famous since she was 17. Not for a single moment in her entire adulthood (she’s now 28) has she been able to do any of the everyday things the rest of us take for granted. No wonder, then, that so much of what surrounds her seems so peculiar. No wonder her last two albums (2014’s fabulous 1989, last year’s rather less fabulous Reputation) have been dominated by songs about how other people perceive her life: every thing she does, as she is well aware, goes through a filter. She sings not about her love life — her relationships with the actors Tom Hiddleston and Joe Alwyn, the DJ Calvin Harris —but about how her love life is reported.

FIVE years ago she was the biggest pop star on the planet, able to sell out the world’s largest venues, with fellow A-listers queuing to be in her “squad”. But Taylor Swift has suddenly found herself to be Little Miss Unpopular — a fact underlined by her embarrassing failure to shift tickets for her latest tour. We revealed on Saturday how she had sold just 38,000 out of 56,000 tickets for the Manchester opening night of her UK dates the previous weekend. Her two dates at Wembley Stadium this week are expected to see similar swathes of empty seats. For image-obsessed Taylor, who has also seen record sales plummet and scores of famous former friends turn against her, it is a major humiliation. It follows woeful sales of her sixth album Reputation — filled with songs about revenge and settling scores with her various exes and showbiz enemies — which has sold just 301,000 copies in the UK since its release last November. That compares with 1.08million … [Read more...] about Taylor Swift’s reign as the biggest pop star could end… after flop album, empty concert seats and reputation for feuds

TAYLOR Swift sure knows how to make a comeback. By Jack Hardwick / Published 8th June 2018 GETTY DARK AND MYSTERIOUS: The front VIP standing areas are aptly named The Snake Pit The pop beauty, who topped the charts with her long awaited sixth studio album last year, arrived in Manchester on Friday night to kick off the UK leg of her Reputation Stadium Tour.Performing to a near sell-out crowd of at the Etihad Stadium, the superstar showed exactly why she’s come to dominate the world with only a single uber-short press interview in the past 24 months.Following Beyoncé and Jay Z’s lead, Taylor has refused to comment about the mass speciation surrounding her personal life - despite her bizarre public fling with Tom Hiddleston which saw him sport an “I heart TS” t-shirt as they messed about in the sea.Instead, she’s latched into the negative press and turned it into a positive, transforming herself in the process.

MANY of the biggest names in music were missing from Sunday's Grammy Awards, held at New York's Madison Square Garden. Among the most curious absentees: Ed Sheeran Loading article content Ed Sheeran was one of the biggest perceived snubs in top categories, missing out in album, record and song of the year. So it made his absence all the more awkward when he wasn't there to accept awards for best pop solo performance (Shape of You) and pop vocal album (Divide). Taylor Swift The 10-time Grammy winner was a no-show at Sunday's ceremony, where she would have walked away empty-handed in the two below-the-line categories where she was nominated: best country song (Little Big Town's Better Man) and song written for visual media (I Don't Wanna Live Forever with Zayn). Drake Last year, the Toronto native told British DJ Semtex in an interview that he was skipping the Grammys "because they don’t air the other rap awards on … [Read more...] about Why did Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Drake skip this year’s Grammys?
