Taylor Swift is one of the most famous celebrities in America. She was born in December 1989 and is a singer, songwriter, and actress. Her home town is Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. However, she later moved to Nashville at the age of 14 to continue her country music career. Taylor has been in the media for quite some time, and unlike other celebrities who attract media attention with their latest hairstyle, outfit, or record label, Swift is generally known for her love affair with other top celebrities. Many people on the net and in the media are often looking for the next date with Taylor. Aside from her love affair, her family and especially her brother is in the spotlight.
Taylor Swift’s Family
Her parents were not in the spotlight as such, but one thing that caught the media’s attention was when she bought a four-bedroom house for them in Tennessee, where she grew up. Taylor’s mom Andrea Smith and her dad Scot Smith have been married since February 1988. Her mother was diagnosed with cancer in late December 2014.
Her brother Austin Swift, who is about two and a half years younger, is also popular. He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and has worked in college productions. Austin and Taylor have had a good relationship since their youth.
Austin’s Media Recognition
Taylor also showed love to her young brother through her songs. She mentioned him in the lyrics of her songs – The Best Day and Never Grow Grow Grow. Austin and his friends performed separately in Taylor’s music videos. Austin is also a freelance photographer, works for Getty Images, and has some of his work published in Rolling Stones and People Magazine.
Taylor Swift’s House
Taylor has quite an impressive real estate collection. She lives in a duplex penthouse in the neighborhood of Tribeca, New York. She also has a 3-bedroom cottage in Beverly Hills, a duplex penthouse in Nashville, Tennessee, and the most recent, an 8-bedroom summer house in Watch Hill, Rhode Island (see picture above).
Taylor Swift’s Dating/Career Life
Nothing has stolen media attention about Taylor more than her love life. She is barely 27 years old and has already met about 13 friends. Amazingly, her experiences with her various friends have been the inspiration for her songs.
In October 2008 she went out with one of the brothers of the Jonas Brothers music group, Joe Jonas. Their relationship ended when Jonas broke up with her on the phone, which bothered her a lot. She even talked about it on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. As a result of the breakup she wrote the two songs Forever and Always and Last Kiss.
The following year, Taylor started dating Twilight star Taylor Lautner, whom she met on the set of the Valentine’s Day movie. As namesake, they were called Taylor Squared. However, Swift was not as attracted to Lautner as he was to him, so they split up, but remained friends.
Between December 2009 and early 2010, Taylor was involved in an affair with John Mayer.
Brandon Borello broke up with her because he had to go to college. For this, she wrote the song, Tim McGraw.
Sam Armstrong was also involved with Taylor, but she cheated on her. The breakup resulted in the song Should’ve Said No.
Between 2013 and 2014 it was not quite clear who Taylor was meeting with. Nevertheless, in March 2015 she was associated with the Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, with whom she is still dating. There were rumors of a break-up, but so far the couple is still together. In 2015, they were ranked as the highest-paid couple in Hollywood with a combined income of $146 million.
