I heart Taylor Swift. And I'm gonna declare now that The Red Tour will remain as my highlight of 2014.
My teenage self would probably have gone to The Red Tour donning cat ears, but these days I'm feeling old. Once a non-fan of Taylor Swift and country music, I am now a fully-fledged, raging Swifty because the Red album converted me. No one sings a good break-up song quite like Taylor (or Adele). Let's not start on which songs I love the most, but Red is possibly my all-time favourite from the whole album.
My girl gets a lot of media backlash for her dating life, but, let's be honest, she puts on a good show and writes good songs. Her album is like a confession of my heart, though unfortunately I am not able to articulate it as lyrically. 'I Almost Do' and 'Begin Again' pull on my heartstrings a lil. And at least she actually wears clothes and is not getting DUIs like the rest of her peers (no names).
Ed Sheeran came out as a surprise special guest. Who just so happens to be my favourite male singer (closely tied with The Weeknd, but no one does a soft acoustic ballad quite like Ed). And then I was on the verge of crying/losing my voice. I'm now re-obsessing over Sparks Fly, re-watching her tour videos daily and abusing the repeat button on iTunes.
