Taylor Swift is one of the biggest pop stars of her era. With ten Grammys to her name, a multi-million dollar fortune and 75 million followers on Twitter, the megastar is one of the most powerful women in the world.

Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989 – hence the album title, natch. Her parents named their daughter after the renowned musician James Taylor, which pretty much set the stage for her future career.
