  • Asay

    The one and only country queen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lisa

    she deserves it ;)

  • iFellytone

    I’m glad, the album was brilliant

  • um

    She would be good to do a screamo album cuz she certainly can’t sing.

    Take a break and stop writing songs about boys. One topic wonder!

  • Liz

    @MlleF:
    Well, we all have our own tastes. :)

    Congrats Taylor. You deserve it. I love every song on Speak Now!! :)

  • jill

    That pose really ruins the dress.
    She should stop trying to be a little princess. She’s not that young anymore.

    She is dating someone who could be her father.

  • Ben

    Why didn’t she do a song with Kanye.
    Not over it? LOL

  • Joanne

    i hope she does some good with all that money

  • Brooke

    I don’t get all the hype about her. She’s so freaking overrated! She can’t sing worth crap, all her songs sound the same, and she’s just plain obnoxious.
    :)

  • J. Michael

    Very deserving, love her. Great role model

  • john

    I call a false flag, something seems fishy to me..just saying

  • jay

    Americans are definetely the people with the less taset&NO absolute knowledge of what’s artistic, in the whole planet! I can’t explain this insanity any other way!

    SHE DESERVE IT , THE ONE AND ONLY , QUEEN TAYLOR SWIFT <3

  • Philly11

    All haters go kill yourselves. Yea, T.Swift..

  • Ko

    What a surprise..a prime example that you DON’T need to use SEX to sell records. Although I’m NOT a fan of her music (I don’t think she is a good singer), Congrats are in order for her.

  • lcrrie

    this girl is so lucky!
    well… good for her!

  • Dubya Bush

    I don’t even like Taylor but I gotta give it up for her. She’s doing it bigger than anyone else in music right now and you can’t front on that! Werk Taylor!

  • TRUTH HURTS.

    Thanks Kanye for helping Taylor sell more records than you. The sympathy vote always win. Throwing douchebag John Mayer under the bus was a very calculated and smart PR move. Beyonce better pay attention. There is a new pop queen.

  • Ihateph

    Not a fan of TS but now why did they make such a big deal over Lady xerox when she only sold around 5 mil in the states.. she just got her ass handed to her by TS lol

  • emmily

    Nothing against tay swift, it is good for her. However, it is sad to see her PR went nut in order to push the selling, and slam all those celes guys, she puts out free video talking about each songs, lots people just want to know ” oh, this song is about taylor lautner, this song is about John mayer and that song is about Joe …” when download or buy her songs. Lots of taylor lautner’s fans, John Mayer’s fans, even Joe’s fans draw to her songs just want to know what happen.
    I do not think those songs last for long, Her Album is not even in top 15 itunes now ( just in second week release). I mean ” Whip my hair” from 9 year old Willow smith even stay at top 10 longer than taylor swift’s.

  • Vanessa

    Taylor is 21! why is she still singing about fairytales, boys and happily ever after? fair enough if she did one album like that, but it’s been the same thing over and over again! :/
    It makes me wonder if people write her songs for her and want her image to be like this?
    All her videos are the same, does she have any creativity?

  • emmily

    Again, I like tay swift more back then, just feel her fearless songs were more from her heart– that is why fearless songs will stay longer. Speak Now are so tabloidish songs.
    Kesha’s song ” We R Who We R” knocks tay swift’s “Speak Now” at the top of itunes just 2 days after Speak now released.

  • TRUTH HURTS.

    Grow up taylo swift! Grow up and stop singing about boys. Here we go again another album with all the same material. No change what so ever. boring!

  • Jasonkc

    I bought 3 Carrie Underwood, 1 Miranda Lambert and 1 Lady Antebellum album…. NO Taylor Swift! 1,044,000 is pretty darn impressive in this day and age. Just not my type of artist. 1,044,000 parents are 12.99 less in their bank accounts!

  • madmax

    much success to her.

  • Love Her

    You guys are haters. Haha sorry that she’s talented and you aren’t. Go learn some new hobbies.

  • BBJ

    @emmily:

    Wow, maybe you should go learn grammar before you start talking. FYI, Taylor’s album is at number 2 on iTunes. She deserves it and if people buy her album because they want to know the gossip that’s their problem. However, her album is amazing. It is more mature and everyone who says she is still stuck in high school has obviously not heard the album. This album is amazing and deserves these numbers. I can’t wait to see it get bigger the same way ‘Fearless’ did. 2012 Grammys belong to Taylor Swift.

  • megan

    @jill:

    Actually no. Jake Gyllenhal is 29. he had her when he was 9???

  • to truth hurts

    what ever you may think this new album has sold over a million copies in its first week. so what ever she is doing her fans are happy with.

  • irene olson

    Not at all a Taylor Swift fan. The girl cannot sing, but she has a great publicist. It is good for the tweens and teens to have a good role model to fantasize about. Not much positive for young people in the world (booze, drugs, sex, FACEBOOK), so if they want to be Taylor Swift fans, let them be.

  • Taylor Rocks

    Good for her, she prove that you can sell record without dressing sluty, selling sex like so many female popstar. she deserve all of the sucess. she writes her own song and she sings about stuff that people can relate to.

  • eatyourheartout

    loving the hate comments. :) congrats,Taylor! You have really outdone yourself with this album! It truly is brilliant. :)
    selfmade artist singing and producing her own songs- over keisha,katy,miley,rihanna any day.

  • nkenk

    Ugh this is annoying. She’s so whiney all the time about her love life and all of her songs are the same she’s lucky Kanye called her out because a lot of people didn’t know her ugly ass before he did that. Her face is so goddamned scrunched up.

  • nata

    Exiting news! She seems like a sweet girl and down to earth! I’m glad she is doing well!

  • ummright

    She’s like Milli Vanilli. Somebody goes in the studio and fixes her voice to make it seem like she can sing, but live the girl can’t sing. I wouldn’t spend 2 bucks for her fake albums. But the 10 year olds that buy her cds don’t care that she can’t sing.

  • Philly11

    Its crazy to put people in a box. I’m 24, African American, from the projects. My fav rappers are Tupac, Biggie, and Eminem…and surprise, I love Taylor Swift. Her songs are not just for a specific type of audience. I can relate to what she says as well as any other age group. Stop hating and listen…

  • J

    Wow thats awesome :) I love Taylor! But, I do have to say that I think Fearless is way better then this album. I listened to it, and the only song I like besides Mine, and partially speak now, is Enchanted. The rest are not video worthy and I skipped past them. I do love her tho, I just wish there were more upbeat pop, radio worthy songs. Fearless is my favorite.

  • jaybe

    @Vanessa: If you actually listened to the album, she is not talking about fairytales in any of them! Give her a chance before you judge, u may actually like it.

  • xoAsh21

    @nkenk: She’s lucky Kanye called her out? why was she up their in the first place..to win an award! so she clearly already had fans. You must be very bitter, lonely, and jealous person to have to try to belittle someone they way you are. So what you don’t like her music! Clearly Millions of people do, so you sitting here trying to call her ugly just because you don’t like her music..just makes you look pretty lame

  • Alice

    Yay! Well done Taylor! Luv ur album sooooooo much! :)

  • stitch626

    @nkenk: ok its fine to say you don’t like her music. But really to just insult a person by calling her face “scrunched up” and all that is just plain low. Do you know the girl?

  • stitch626

    @TRUTH HURTS.: Hey if the girl wants to sing about guys then let her. Who are you- “a soldier of culture” as Kanye West claims he is? Coz if you think you are then you really need some hobbies.

  • stitch626

    @Brooke: Obnoxious? Wow – do u know her?

  • nessa

    man why waste your money on her crap music hahaha beats me.

  • Nadia

    the truth is, it’s a good album! not impressive but good, shocking maybe.it comes off as a gimmick! and maybe the biggest marketing game in the history of music..
    her people made sure that all the needed rumors got around during last year..we read about how john mayer got in the way of her relationship with Taylor lautner and how she was not that into him andhow she was desperately in love and afraid that john mayer would break her heart and desert her. she chose to perform “innocent” in MTV awards with a tacky use of last year video, in her album cover she made sure that people know exactly who the songs were about, older people will be interested in john mayer songs, younger fans will be interested in joe jonas and Taylor lautner. then there were these songs nobody would know who they were for but for some odd reason the news got out that “better than revenge”+”mean” are about Camilla beil and Bob Lefsetz

    i used to be a fan, but nowadays i’m reconsidering that, i now see her as a bully and opportunist by doing this to so many people, especially with the fact that they are well known celebrities, it’s ok to know the identity of one or two people in an album, not everyone!
    I can see it all, it only needs a person who can actually think.. which is rare these days.. especially among her targeted audience!
    anyways, congrats taylor & good luck in the 2012 grammys, cuz they’ll give you some to get more ratings!!!

  • bookm

    @BBJ:

    her album is now NUMBER 1 on iTunes! Go Taylor… Dun care about the haters coz ur fans outnumbered haters.. That’s for sure. Or else, u won’t achieve sales over 1 million in just one week.

    i hope people won’t think that i’m against writing personal songs, i’m just against publicizing it and ruining art with stupid publicity stunts!

    Don’t you know the people that buy albums these days are teens. Adults down buy CDs anymore. The Internet makes it where you can basically get anything for free. Her little girl fans go run out and buy the crap. If you look at whose making money touring, this last spring it was Bon jovi U2 John Mayer and Jay-Z. They attract adults who spend their money on good concert seats. Remember artists get like 5 cents for every album sold. The record company takes the rest. So sorry swift has dough, but compared to those that have been in the game for years, NO!
