Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage. At age 14, Swift became the youngest artist signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house and, at 15, she signed her first record deal.
Her 2006 eponymous debut album was the longest-charting album of the 2000s in the US. Its third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008.
Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", it became the US' best-selling album of 2009 and was certified diamond in the US. The album won four Grammy Awards, and Swift became the youngest Album of the Year winner.
It’s been more than a decade since Jenna Bush Hager’s dad, former President George W. Bush, lived in the White House, but she can still remember the ghostly encounter she had.“The White House is haunted,” the Today With Hoda & Jenna cohost exclusively recalls to Us Weekly. “My [twin] sister [Barbara Bush] and I heard a ghost playing classical piano, but she seemed friendly.”Jenna and Barbara, 40, were headed off to college when their dad, 76, won the 2000 presidential election and was sworn in as the 43rd President of the United States in 2001.
