Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage. At age 14, Swift became the youngest artist signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house and, at 15, she signed her first record deal.
Her 2006 eponymous debut album was the longest-charting album of the 2000s in the US. Its third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008.
Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", it became the US' best-selling album of 2009 and was certified diamond in the US. The album won four Grammy Awards, and Swift became the youngest Album of the Year winner.
Taylor Swift has been forced to cancel today’s (November 18) show in Rio de Janeiro due to extreme heat. The announcement comes in the wake of the tragic news that a fan died yesterday (November 17) before her previous show in the city.
Writing on Instagram, Swift said: “I’m writing this from my dressing room in the stadium. The decision has been made to postpone tonight’s show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio.” “The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers and crew has to and always will come first.” Temperatures in the Brazilian city have broken records this week, with a daytime peak of 39.1C recorded on Friday.
The fan who died on Friday has been named as Ana Clara Benevides Machado, 23. She was attended to by paramedics at the concert venue, before being taken to hospital, where she passed away an hour later.
It has been reported by Brazilian newspaper Fohla de S Paulo that she collapsed at the show and had a cardiac arrest. Swift wrote on Instagram of being “devastated” by the news, adding: “I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show.” “I’m not going to be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.Read more on nme.com
