Tay Swift wrote a poem about a monster in her closet in 4th Grade November 4, 2009

Filed under: Taylor Swift — Mary-Kimberley @ 4:39 pm

Jimmy Fallon put 5 facts about Taylor on his official blog:

1. In 2006, she released her debut single “Tim McGraw”, which peaked at number six on the Billboard country charts. Later in October 2006, she released her self-titled debut album, which produced five hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts and was certified 3× Multi-Platinum by the RIAA. The New York Times described Swift as “one of pop’s finest songwriters, country’s foremost pragmatist and more in touch with her inner life than most adults”.

2. According to Nielsen SoundScan, Swift was the biggest selling artist of 2008 in the United States with combined sales of more than four million albums. Swift’s Fearless and her self-titled album finished 2008 at number three and number six respectively, with sales of 2.1 and 1.5 million.[6] She was the first artist in the history of Nielsen SoundScan to have two different albums in the Top 10 on the year end album chart.

3. Swift was born in the borough of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. She is the daughter of Scott Swift, a stock broker, and his wife Andrea, a homemaker. She has a younger brother, Austin. When she was in fourth grade, Swift won a national poetry contest with a three page poem entitled “Monster In My Closet”.

4. At ten, Swift began writing songs and singing at karaoke contests, festivals, and fairs around her hometown. During one summer, Swift devoted herself to writing a 350 page (unpublished) novel. She was a member of Kirk Cremer’s SNL-inspired kid’s sketch comedy group, TheatreKids Live!, where she was a natural comedic talent. After seeing her karaoke performance at one of the cast parties, it was Cremer’s mother who first suggested that Swift seemed more of a natural to pursue a career in country music, rather than theatrical performing.

5. Swift first learned to play guitar from a computer repairman who showed her how to play three chords. After learning those three chords, she wrote her first song, “Lucky You”. She began writing songs regularly and used it as outlet to help her with her pain from not fitting in at school. Other kids would react badly to her so she wrote songs about them.

    Okay first of all I do not understand why Taylor Swift is so popular? She has no talent to me. Taylor Swift started out intending to be a country singer? Now she is making music videos while jumping on a bed? Alright let’s all be honest with ourselves, this chick is going to be 20 years old, and she is jumping on beds, wearing cheap looking glasses? I mean really? Not to mention she is making videos with T-pain? Who is a known legend? I do not see how she is sooo popular, when in reality she is just a waste of time.

  13. LoveLoveLove EC Says:

    That is no way to talk about a girl who won a NATIONAL poetry contest in 4th grade, who didnt give up hoping that one day someone from nashville would actually make a record deal at the ludicrous age of thirteen.
    She is such an inspiration to so many people including myself!
    So DONT go around saying horrid,nasty things about some one you dont like because in my eyes it just pure jealousy!
    Taylor dont let anyone put down your dreams because no bad things about you are true!
    PS: Andrea Witt, i would just love to see you try half the things taylor has done in her past life!!
    And by the way if you dont likeTS then what the hell are you doing on this site!??

  17. smily Says:

    she is not a wast of time she great and a lot of people look up to her you may not but that does not give people the right to say mean things about her does it. think what will happen if she read some of the mean things you just it will end up her giving up her ONE hobby that she loves and as one person said just keep it to your self. I love you Taylor swift!!!!!
