Another Gig for America’s Sweetheart, Taylor Swift

Since it was recently announced that Taylor Swift will be a headliner on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest,” many people are left wondering how this superstar got into our hearts in the first place. The truth is rather simple. She sang her way there by using a few tricks that worked.

When Taylor Swift first emerged on the country music scene, she stole the hearts of young girls everywhere by putting their rawest emotions into words and setting those words to music. As Swift matured and crossed into other genres, she still kept to her roots and made sure her songs were personal. She wrote about break ups and heartache and made millions of fans face their emotions because she got them just right in her songs.

I just can’t stop streaming it on FreedomPop LTE, even since I bought her new album “1989” yesterday.

It is no doubt that music lovers from all over the world will be tuning in to watch Swift take the stage or will be flocking to Times Square to see her performance. Taylor Swift will remain on center stage for the coming years as long as she continues to explore the human emotions that touch the hearts and lives of so many people. In a world in which superstars seem untouchable and plastic, Taylor still seems approachable, real and grounded. This is what makes her America’s sweetheart.

It’s the End of a Fashion Era

The world has lost a fashion icon. Oscar de La Renta died at the age of 82 on October 20, 2014 in his Connecticut home after a long battle with cancer. Known across the globe for his skill and creativity, he was a favorite designer for celebrities, catapulting himself into fame with his elaborate creations. Considered a legend when it came to American fashion (kudos to Mike Livak for his awesome tribute video), Oscar de La Renta was strong man who stood up to cancer for nearly eight years, finally succumbing to complications of the illness with his wife, Annette, by his side. However, it is his legacy that he will be remembered for in the years to come.

A Career to Span Over Half a Century
Dating back to the 1950’s, Oscar de la Renta entered the fashion industry in Spain, moved on to Paris, and eventually became a powerhouse in New York. He was catapulted to legendary status when he designed clothing for Jacqueline Kennedy in the 1960s. He became the designer of choice for First Ladies since that time, even designing memorable dresses for Michelle Obama. He created Amal Alamuddin’s wedding dress when she married George Clooney in Venice and was a favorite of many top names in the world of entertainment. it’s small wonder that he was often referred to as the “sultan of suave.” He knew how to transform fabric into a work of art, creating garments that were at the pinnacle of fashion. He is best known for making women feel like they were gorgeous the moment they wore one of his gowns, bringing out their most admirable features every time.
