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.
Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar will be eligible for a trophy at the 2023 Academy Awards, it has been reported.Both artists will qualify for nominations in the Best Live Action Short category, thanks to the fact that extended music videos for both of their songs – the 10-minute version of ‘All Too Well’ from ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ and Lamar’s ‘Mr.
Morale And The Big Steppers’ cut ‘We Cry Together’ – were screened theatrically.Swift released the accompanying short film for ‘All Too Well’ – her directorial debut, starring Sadie Sink (Stranger Things) and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) – last November.
After premiering it with a bespoke event in Manhattan, Swift later took the project to New York’s Tribeca Film Festival, where she declared that “it would be fantastic to write and direct a feature”.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Swift is currently in talks with “a top consulting firm” to organise a formal campaign for the project – which she’s described as “a film about an effervescent, curious young woman who ends up completely out of her depth” – in the lead-up to awards season.Meanwhile, Lamar began screening his short film for ‘We Cry Together’ – starring himself alongside Taylour Paige (Zola), who also performs on the song – back in June.Read more on nme.com
