Last month Taylor Swift got some backlash from New Yorkers when she announced that she was named New York City’s tourism ambassador.
Critics questioned how much Taylor could actually know about the city, since she has only lived in New York for a little over a year and was born in Pennsylvania.
But, fellow pop star, Long Island and New York native Billy Joel has come out defending Taylor as the new ambassador!
Here is what Billy had to say,
I see the New York press going, ‘Taylor Swift is going to be the new New York representative?’ You snoots. Let her in. That’s what New York is all about. I say, ‘Welcome.’
On a recent episode of “Good Morning America,” Taylor had this to say about her new position,
I’m still learning, but I’m so enthusiastic about this city that when I love something, I’m very vocal about it, New York was a huge landscape for what became this album. It’s affected my life in ways I’m not even aware of fully.
Taylor went on to talk about her new album “1989,” here’s what she had to say,
I started the album with ‘Welcome to New York’ because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years. It’s like an electric city and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism. I saw New York as a place of endless potential and possibilities, and you can hear that reflected in this music and in this song
We are glad to hear that Taylor is loving New York! What do you think, will Taylor Swift make a great ambassador for New York?
Ariana Grande and Major Lazer teamed up together on the song “All My Love,” their contribution to Lorde’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ soundtrack.
Major Lazer member Diplo, DJ/music producer, may not be working with Lorde any time soon since, he recently picked on her friend Taylor Swift.
Diplo recently tweeted,
Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty
Diplo who is rumored to be dating Katy Perry (long time rival of Taylor) irritated Lorde with his tweet!
Lorde then responded with at tweet of her own,
@diplo should we do something about your tiny (body parts) while we’re at it hm
Well that seemed to shut Diplo up for awhile… lets take a break from all the drama and listen to “All My Love.” Let us know what you think?
Madison Square Garden in New York City Wednesday night (November 12) played host to a handful of celebrities to watch the New York Knicks lose to the Orlando Magic’s 97 to 95.
At courtside sitting with her friends Kate Upton and Amanda Seyfried was none other than Taylor Swift!
Kate Upton was also at the game with her boyfriend Justin Verlander and Amanda’s boyfriend Justin Long was there too. Taylor brought her BFF Britany Maack.
Taylor posted this photo on her Instagram account and just said:
Were you at the game last night? Did you see Taylor and her friends?
So far for all of 2014, Taylor Swift has the two best album-sales weeks!
Her album “1989” sold 1.287 million copies in its first week and sold 402,000 copies in its second week, keeping the No. 1 spot on the Billboard albums chart for both weeks.
A lot of country acts saw a huge percentage increase in album sales this week after they performed on last week’s Country Music Association Awards Show.
Miranda Lambert’s “Platinum” more than tripled after she won album-of-the-year. Her husband, Blake Shelton’s album “Bringing Back the Sunshine” had a 135% increase in sales from the week before, selling almost 21,000 copies.
26 songs by artists who performed or appeared on the Country Music Association Awards Show had download numbers more than double afterwards.
We are thrilled that Taylor’s album is doing so well, but we wonder if the new pop princess Taylor had performed at the CMAs she might have had even bigger sales? What do you think, would you liked to have seen Taylor at the CMAs?
