Taylor Swift lands on Planet 46
Today is the big day.
Taylor Swift is in town.
It’s important, because she’s my future daughter-in-law (so promises my 5-year-old son). He honestly believes that Ms. Swift is his girlfriend.
That sounds silly, until I realize that I never even spoke to my first girlfriend in fourth grade. We never had a chance.
I bring all this up today because it’s a fine day to check out the Planet 46 feature on Taylor Swift today. See George Lang’s take on the rising stardom of Taylor. He makes it clear why my 5-year-old (and hundreds of thousands of other young people) feel like they have a personal relationship with her:
Swift might not ever need to write her autobiography — in essence, she’s been doing it since she wrote her first song, titled “Lucky You,” when she was 10. When she got bullied by mean girls in junior high, she went home and put pen to paper, then lyrics to music.
Anyway, we’re not going to the concert. But we’ll see her at the wedding.
