Taylor Swift's Role in 'The Giver' Film is Important, Says Author

Taylor Swift looks as flawless as always as she heads out of her apartment and heads to the gym on Wednesday afternoon (July 9) in New York City.

The night before, the 24-year-old singer was spotted arriving home late after spending the night out.

Author Lois Lowry recently opened up about Taylor‘s role in the upcoming film adaptation of her novel “The Giver.”

“The role in the movie is still a small role, but it’s a crucial and very important one,” Lois told MTV News. “I have a copy of the movie in its final stages here on my computer, and I had my two grandsons here for the Fourth of July weekend — they’re 13 and 15 ,and I showed it to them–probably against the rules–anyways, I asked them was there anything special that they liked best and one of them selected the scene with Taylor Swift.”

She continued, “I don’t think because of Taylor Swift particularly, but because the elements of that particular scene he found very gripping. So her role in the movie is much the same in the book, except in the book she’s only remembered… And in the movie you can see the memory of her. She appears in, I don’t know the technical term would be, but you can see her. And it’s very compelling.”

As for whether we’ll see Tay perform on screen, Lois said, “I don’t know if I’m allowed to tell you that! I will tell you, she does not sing. I don’t know if it would be an appropriate thing for her to sing. It would’ve turned the movie into a musical, which it isn’t! So no, no singing.”

FYI: Taylor is wearing a Reformation romper for the night out.

Taylor Swift Doesn't Think Music Should Be Free

Taylor Swift wears an itty, bitty, teeny weeny, black and white polka-dotted crop top and skirt while out in New York City on Monday afternoon (July 7).

The 24-year-old singer/songwriter recently wrote an insightful article for the Wall Street Journal on where the music business is going in the future.

She wrote: “In my opinion, the value of an album is, and will continue to be, based on the amount of heart and soul an artist has bled into a body of work, and the financial value that artists (and their labels) place on their music when it goes out into the marketplace. Piracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically, and every artist has handled this blow differently.

“In recent years, you’ve probably read the articles about major recording artists who have decided to practically give their music away, for this promotion or that exclusive deal. My hope for the future, not just in the music industry, but in every young girl I meet…is that they all realize their worth and ask for it.”

Taylor added, “Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It’s my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album’s price point is. I hope they don’t underestimate themselves or undervalue their art.”

FYI: Taylor is wearing the Reformation Clinton Two Piece in Jingle and carrying a Kate Spade New York purse.
