Taylor Swift has had quite the year! Another hit album, a successful tour….And now Taylor can add the cover of Rolling Stone to her list of accomplishments. You go girl! Taylor took to her Myspace blog to let you all know how happy she is to grace the Rolling Stone cover and to fill you in on what she is up to…in London.
“Now it’s all designed to blow our minds
But our minds won’t really be blown
Like the blow that’ll get you when you get your picture
On the cover of the Rolling Stone”
I’m so excited, I can’t even stand it. It’s on news stands now, and I haven’t seen it yet because I’m in London, but I just can’t believe I get to be on the cover of Rolling Stone. Wow. This is crazy.
It’s been a fun couple of weeks.. We played at the San Antonio rodeo, and that was a total blast. We hadn’t gotten to play a full show (like a two hour show) in a few months, so everyone in the band was going crazy all day. All week, even, it was just “I need to play a show. I need to play a show.” Then we got to San Antonio, and we were all walking around the arena before meet and greet. I was walking back to the dressing room, when I passed Caitlin (fiddle extraordinaire) in the hall. She was wearing these silver, reflective, almost blinding leggings under her skirt. That’s the sort of thing we all tease each other about, so as soon as I got back to the dressing room, before I turned the corner, I yelled “Caitlin looks like a space stripper!”. I turn the corner, and standing in my dressing room is…. George Strait and his wife Norma. I literally was so mortified, I fell to the floor and my face was BRIGHT red. We all burst out laughing and hung out for about an hour. I don’t think anything has ever surprised me as much, and I honestly never thought I’d get to say that George Strait came to watch one of my shows.
Alright, now I’m going to prove my ’13′ theory even more with a few things that have happened lately. I know I’m always going on about 13 being my lucky number, but this is really… coincidental. So, this is the 13th week of Fearless being out. In the 13th week of my album being out, “Love Story” went number ONE on pop radio!! Not only that, but this week, the album went back to number one on the Billboard 200 (which I never expected it would do). Also in the 13th week, my Rolling Stone cover came out. This is probably one of the best weeks I’ve ever had, and it’s the 13th week of my album being out! It may have something to do with luck, but I’ll always know that it has EVERYTHING to do with you guys going out there and fighting for me and making my life what it is now.
I’ve been in London for the last week. I love it here! When I got here, I didn’t expect anyone to know who I was because I’m pretty much starting all over here and my album isn’t even out until March 9… But everywhere I’ve gone, there have been SO many fans outside waiting with signs and flowers! I can’t believe it! It was the same going to the Brits last night.. The red carpet was so much fun, and there were so many fans outside with CDs and pictures and signs. So cool, you guys. The Brits were amazing, what a cool night. We spent the day in Scotland doing radio and acoustic shows, then Manchester. That was basically the prettiest drive ever. Now I’m on the way back to London from Manchester on a double decker tour bus. My band and I are like little kids, because we haven’t ever seen one of these before. But now we’ve settled down and are all crowded together in the back lounge, watching one of our Eagles live concert DVDs.
I love you, I’ll video blog soon!
