Taylor Swift has officially made it as a name on the Forbes Power Women list. Other names include the likes of Angela Merkel and Hillary Clinton. This comes after Swift’s fan following (a.k.a the Swifties) have supported the singer songwriter’s every hard working move, selling millions of albums and fast becoming one of the most loved pop icons. Swift is the youngest person to make it onto the list, sitting at number 64.
Bad Blood features an all star cast of some of the hottest, most powerful women in the industry (including the likes of Selena Gomez, Cara Delevigne, Lily Aldridge, Hailee Steinfeld, Zendaya , Jessica Alba, Gigi Hadid, Lena Dunham and Ellie Goulding). It premiered at the Billboard Music Awards, where Swift walked away with 9 awards. The video was also produced by Swift and shows the women in a blockbuster inspired action feature film depicting the tale of heroes and villains.
It just missed the record for highest debut, which is a title she currently holds for “Shake it Off.” The song is about a fall out that Swift has encountered with another woman, who is speculated to be Katy Perry. This correlation was made as Swift told Rolling Stone about an arena tour sabotage in 2013, during which Perry took some of Swift’s dancers.
Taylor Swift is on fire, dominating in the industry and as one of the world’s most powerful women.
