I had read about the "1989 Secret Sessions" on Tumblr in the weeks previous, wondering how those people were chosen and how I could possibly be included in such an event. Then suddenly, come Saturday afternoon, I too was on my way from UConn to Taylor Swift's home.
Long before I published my first novel, I tried to join a neighborhood fiction writing workshop, only to be told by one member, 'Sorry, come back when you get published. We can't accept novices.' Yeah, that stung.
As parents, I think we need to discover an erotic world in our house that remains separate from the children. The girls have no trouble entering their imaginary realms -- any place, any time of day.
What I've discovered -- much to the affect of Taylor's swift way of living -- is that your life can be whatever may come of it. Your twenties don't have to be dark and twisted, with dreams becoming timestamped to your teenage imagination. It's yours to create.
Change can only come if we work together. We must be responsible to each other. You have 44.3 million followers on twitter. Use your platform. Save lives.
On the whole, Top 40 tracks dominate this month's list. But, there should also be enough alternate versions -- plus some crossover hits from upstarts like Kongos and Echosmith -- to keep things interesting.
This September I want to talk about everything I've done in the last year. I owe it to Taylor and everyone else who took the time to read my blog post and shared it for others to read.
Apparently, the fact that Swift said there was a "personal element" to the fight is proof-positive that it has to do with Mayer. Because, you know, the only personal thing that can exist for women is men.
From Beyonce performing in front of a glowing "FEMINIST" sign at last week's MTV Video Music Awards, to Taylor Swift publicly declaring her own feminist awakening in an interview with The Guardian, could it be that embracing a feminist identity is the latest celebrity trend?

Escalating racial tensions, and the puzzled response from white America, reminds us that many in suburbia still have no clue about American's complicated history with race. Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" may be bubblegum fun, but it does not deserve a ghetto pass (regardless of her playful "I'm such a dork!" tone).
This week features Bob Ezrin, one of the most commercially successful producers of all time. He's worked with many of the world's most important contemporary artists.
I had my concerns about The Giver, another teen-oriented film from the Weinstein Company. Serving as definite counter-balance to my trepidations: the presence at the helm of Phillip Noyce. Turns out my faith was not ill-founded.
In the past few weeks, your Facebook feed was probably littered with videos of friends getting doused with ice water to help spread awareness of and f...
I hope this new song inspires you to start or continue whatever it is and make a change in this world, one dance step at a time. Don't bother with the haters. They're missing out on the fun.
As soon as the band comes on, I see a better portion of the audience bust out their camera phones and hold them up for (most of) the performance, snapping photos and taking video. They're blocking the person behind them, looking up at their phone instead of at the human beings playing live music in front of them.
