Taylor Swift says guys should know she's going to write songs about them, by now

Miley Cyrus breaks the Internet on a daily basis, Lady Gaga just pulled double-duty as host/performer on SNL, and every Michael Scott this side of the Mississippi is making their employees film one of those insufferable lip-dub videos to that new Katy Perry song.

Miley Cyrus breaks the Internet on a daily basis, Lady Gaga just pulled double-duty as host/performer on SNL, and every Michael Scott this side of the Mississippi is making their employees film one of those insufferable lip-dub videos to that new Katy Perry song.

None of that matter, though, because, according to New York magazine's Jody Rosen, Taylor Swift is still the biggest popstar in the world.

A full year after everyone started dropping the bass to "I Knew You Were Trouble." Rosen writes about Swift's Nashville ties, her Red tour, and what's working to make her such a massive, traditional success as other pop acts restort to gimics and the recording industry has to reinvent itself.

The profile is entertaining, if not enlightening, and offers plenty of your classic Swift moments, like when she suggests that guys should know what they're getting into before they date her.

“I heard from the guy that most of Red is about,” Swift said. “He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice. Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy e-mails I got from this one dude. It’s a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it—but one of those people happened to be a songwriter.”

She rolled her eyes. “So what are you going to do? Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?” [NYMag]
