Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is the latest edition of America's sweetheart. The country and pop starlet first made national headway with the release of her debut album "Taylor Swift" in 2006. The album went five times platinum and highlighted Swift's writing talent while only 16 years of age. Her subsequent 3 albums each went 6x, 4x, and 4x platinum. She has also won 7 Grammy awards to go along with numerous others. Much publicity has been made concerning her multiple love interests and the resulting songs she wrote about them. Swift's rebuttal in 2013 was simple, "Since 2010, I have dated exactly two people."
