Taylor Swift to Play New Year’s Rockin Eve & Is New York’s Global Ambassador


taylorswift-gma-102714It’s a big day for Taylor Swift!

The 24-year-old just dropped her fifth album which skyrocketed to #1 on the iTunes chart. This morning, she stopped by Good Morning America where she talked to Robin Roberts about her new sound and her incredible fans.

“I could have made ‘Red’ twice,” Taylor said about her new sound. “I could have done the same thing over again but, instead, I decided to go in a completely different direction, and I’m so happy that I did because the fans are truly going to get a new album. This felt like the most authentic thing for me to follow because I’ve been playing around with pop sensibilities with my writing for the last couple of years and I just really wanted to go for it this time.”

She added, “I feel so without a doubt [that] this is the best thing I’ve done — so to have people able to finally have it now and to have the fans understand what I’ve been working on for two years, it’s just the most amazing feeling.”

You can watch Taylor’s full GMA interview below. She’ll be back at the end of the week to perform. During her GMA interview, they also showed a clip of her new campaign for New York Tourism. Taylor has taken New York by storm and has now been named the city’s Welcome Ambassador for Tourism. Watch her video HERE.
