Taylor Swift recently came out with a new album, “Speak Now.” Her first single of the album, “Mine,” was a hit with fans. “Speak Now” is Swift’s third album. All of her CDs have been fairly successful, releasing 13 singles total.
Swift has fans of all ages, but the question is will her popularity grow or fade as she gets older? Her music mostly identifies with a teenage demographic. When Swift becomes older like many who were popular to teenagers such as Britney Spears, her fans may fade and so might her career.
Her claim to fame is that she writes about the events that are relevant to her young adult life. She pours her heart out in the lyrics of her songs. Most songs deal with heartbreak and love, something that many teens are just experiencing and can easily relate to.
As much as many people love Taylor Swift, her real-life accounts of love may get boring as she grows older. If teenagers are the population digging Swift’s music, then they certainly will not be able to relate to when she writes about having children and getting married.
One signature trait that Swift is famous for is making who she is talking about in her songs easily identifiable. She may be able to market that angle if she dates more famous celebrities to sing about. She has written about her break up with Joe Jonas (who was a coward and used the phone to break up with her) her short-lived romance with player, John Mayer, and many others. The honesty that this technique brings to her songs makes fans love her all the more.
It seems that most teens artists only stick around for a little while so country might be the perfect avenue for Swift. The ballads that the genre presents are often a lot deeper than the pop music that is aired on the radio. Once Swift has been given the boot by her teen fan base she might find solace with the strictly country crowd. Only time will tell.
What are your thoughts? Will she fade out and burn away or stick around for the long-haul?
