Taylor Swift

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.

Weezer‘s Rivers Cuomo has opened up about the time he worked with Taylor Swift on a commercial and her hailing him as her “musical hero”.Speaking to NME for this week’s Does Rock N’ Roll Kill Braincells series, Cuomo took the time to reflect on working with the ‘Bejeweled’ singer back in 2009.

The advert was for the video game Band Hero and featured Cuomo, Swift, Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz and Blink-182‘s Travis Barker recreating Tom Cruise‘s iconic ‘Old Time Rock And Roll’ dance scene from 1983’s Risky Business before the group break out into a performance of Swift’s 2008 hit ‘Love Story’.“I was a teenager when the movie Risky Business came out, so the scene of Tom Cruise dancing in his underwear was iconic and influential for my generation, so to be able to recreate it with a handful of other huge stars was a huge honour,” the ‘Buddy Holly’ singer said.He continued: “Taylor Swift was so gracious and everyone fell in love with her when she came in the room and started talking to us.

She was just like a natural-born leader.”Speaking about the creation of the commercial in a behind-the-scenes video interview, Swift said: “The premise of the commercial is that we’re sliding out into a living room and it’s me and three other players and the three other players are some of my musical heroes.

So I’m kind of freaking out as far as getting to know that Travis Barker, Pete Wentz and Rivers from Weezer are playing along to my song and rocking out actually.”NME asked Cuomo if he’s ever discussed collaborating with Swift after she hailed him as one of her musical heroes to which he replied: “No, we’ve never talked about that.
