Taylor Swift is so many things to so many people. Some call her a singer/songwriter. If you’ve seen any of her concerts you could call her a dancer. Taylor’s Eras Tour, both on stage and in the theaters, continues to break attendance records, so there is no doubt she is also an entertainer. The 30-something phenom has been making waves on the radio, news, stage, box office, and social media for nearly two decades. You could refer to her stardom as well as her personality as:

Its songs include the hits: Shake It Off, Bad Blood and Blank Space.
1989 Taylor’s Version is the next re-release of her albums. It is set to come out October 27, 2023. So, let’s get ready …
