Taylor Swift is an American country singer who at a relatively young age and in a surprisingly short amount of time has shifted unprecedented numbers of records, collected over 70 various awards for her talents and become one of the most powerful artists on the globe.

Between 2008 and 2010, Swift released three critically lauded albums that have sold a combined total of over 13 million copies worldwide. Her first effort - Fearless - became the longest running US No.1 for eight years and made Swift the youngest artist ever to win a Grammy for 'Best Album', while her third record Speak Now notched up sales of over one million in its first week of release. In 2012, her fourth studio album Red became a crossover success on both sides of the Atlantic.

Swift has hit headlines for the infamous moment when Kanye West sabotaged her 2009 MTV VMA win, as well as her relationships with stars such as Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and One Direction's Harry Styles.
