The multiple-Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Taylor Swift celebrates her 32nd birthday this year. Born in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, the American pop icon started her career as a teenage country singer whose songs are being listened to by an entire generation of fans who call themselves Swifties. However, on her special day let’s recall her best moment from 2021.
Taylor’s song Folklore won a Grammy for Album of the Year, a year after the Miss Americana documentary revealed that Taylor thought her previous album Lover was one of her “last opportunities as an artist to grasp onto that kind of success.” The singer briefly reunited with her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles at the Grammys and proved that exes can be friends too.
After Britta Thomason, a nurse who’s been working through the coronavirus pandemic, mentioned in an interview that she’s a Swiftie, Taylor sent her a big box of presents and a handwritten note to “personally thank” her. Taylor and her mom also donated $50,000 to a family of friends Tennesseans who lost their father to COVID-19.
However, Taylor also released her first rerecorded album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) celebrating the beginning of Taylor finally owning all of her own music. Meanwhile, it seems like this year was for Swifties as after nearly a decade of fans asking, Taylor finally released the 10-minute version of All Too Well. Taylor also made her directorial debut while directing and penning her first-ever short film, All Too Well.
The 10-minute-long video for All Too Well went viral for its apparent portrayal of Swift’s short-lived romance with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. However, Taylor Swift dominated everyone’s Spotify Wrapped and was became the second most-streamed singer worldwide.
