Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentTaylor Swift Bio – Smartasses Magazine Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American country pop singer-songwriter and actress. She was born to Andrea and Scott Swift. Her maternal grandmother, Majorie Finlay, was an opera singer, and she has a younger brother, Austin. Swift spent the early years of her life on a Christmas tree farm in Cumru Township, Pennsylvania. She was homeschooled for her junior and senior years, and earned her high-school diploma in 2008.

At the age of nine, Swift became interested in musical theatre and performed in the Berks Youth Theatre Academy productions of Grease, Annie, Bye Bye Birdie and The Sound of Music. At the age of ten, a computer repairman showed her how to play three chords on a guitar, sparking her interest in learning the instrument. Afterwards, she wrote her first song, Lucky You, and started performing at karaoke contests and fairs around her hometown. Swift also traveled regularly to Broadway for vocal and acting lessons, however, after a few years of auditioning fruitlessly, she became interested in country music. Her first major show was a performance at the Bloomsburg Fair. At the age of eleven, Swift won a local talent competition by singing a rendition of LeAnn Rimes’ Big Deal, and was given the opportunity to appear as the opening act for Charlie Daniels. In 2006, she signed with Big Machine Records and became the youngest songwriter ever signed by the publishing house. Swift’s third single, Our Song, made her the youngest person to write and perform a number one song on the Hot Country Songs chart. Her second album, Fearless, was released in 2008, and not only became the best-selling album of 2009 in the United States, but won four Grammy Awards, marking her as the youngest ever Album of the Year winner. Swift’s fifth album 1989, sold more copies in its opening week than any album in the previous twelve years, making her the first and only act to have three albums sell more than one million copies in the opening week. The album won three Grammy Awards, with Swift becoming the fifth, and only female act, to receive the Album of the Year award twice. As a songwriter, Swift has been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2015, she became the youngest woman ever to be included on Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women, ranked at number 64.

Swift was named after singer James Taylor. Her mother believed a gender-neutral name would help her into a successful business career. When she was in fourth grade, Swift won a national poetry contest with a three-page poem entitled Monster In My Closet. Her first hobby was English horse riding, and she has competed in horse shows. Swift’s mother put her in a saddle when she was only nine months old, and her family owned several quarter horses, as well as a shetland pony.

Swift’s philanthropic efforts have been recognized by the Do Something Awards, The Giving Back Fund, and the Tennessee Disaster Services. In 2012, Michelle Obama presented her with The Big Help Award for helping and inspiring others through action. That same year, Kerry Kennedy of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights presented Swift with the Ripple of Hope Award. In 2010, Swift donated $75,000 to Nashville’s Hendersonville High School to help refurbish the school auditorium. In 2012, she pledged $4 million to fund a new education center at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Also in 2012, Swift donated $60,000 to the music departments of six US colleges. In 2013, she donated $100,000 to the Nashville Symphony, while in 2015, she donated $50,000 to the Seattle Symphony. In 2008, she donated the proceeds from her merchandise sales at the Country Music Festival to the Red Cross’s disaster relief fund. Later that year, Swift donated $100,000 to the Red Cross to help the victims of the Iowa flood of 2008. She also donated $250,000 to Alabama football coach Nick Saban’s charity, Nick’s Kids, to aid tornado relief efforts in West Alabama. In 2008, Swift donated a pink Chevy pick-up truck to the Victory Junction Gang Camp, used to transport sick children from the airport. In 2011, as the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, she donated $25,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Tennessee. In 2014, she donated $100,000 to the V Foundation for Cancer Research and $50,000 to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Why we think she’s hot:

If eyes are the veritable window to the soul, then the eyebrows are certainly the frame, and Taylor Swift’s are certified platinum. Not only is her face about as symmetrically perfect as it gets, her lanky little supermodel frame isn’t so bad either, and in the fashion department, we absolutely love her elegant twists on classic style which makes her arguably the best dressed mega-celeb out there. But perhaps Taylor’s best quality is not just the way her singing packs enough punch to melt polar ice caps, but the personality behind the singer too. She’s not just adorable, she’s very adorable, which includes being downright hilarious when she wants to be too.
