Taylor Swift's RED

Everywhere I turn, I see an advertizement for this CD. Is this good news or bad? She's just not a performer anymore. She's a brand.

Billboard reports, “It’s official: Taylor Swift’s ‘RED’ sold a whopping 1.208 million copies last week in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan,”  scoring music’s highest weekly sales number in more than a decade (since 2002’s The Eminem Show), and earning Taylor a new page in the history books as the only female artist (and the fourth artist ever) to hit the 1 million first-week figure twice since SoundScan began tracking actual sales in 1991.   RED notched the 8th largest first-week debut in SoundScan chart history, and the 2nd biggest week ever for a female artist.   RED, released on Big Machine Records, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (Taylor’s second consecutive million-plus album selling debut and third chart-topping album), and this week sold more than the rest of the albums in the Top 50 – combined.   RED is only the 18th album in history to sell a million units in a single week; Taylor’s Speak Now album is another one of the 18, with a 2010 debut of more than 1.04 million copies.   RED accounted for 19.3% of total albums sold this week — one out of nearly every 5 CDs or downloads sold this week was Taylor’s RED album.   With RED, Taylor set a new worldwide iTunes record for highest ever first-week album sales, with 565,545 copies sold digitally around the globe. RED reached #1 on the iTunes sales charts in 42 countries, and reached #1 on the national sales charts in the UK, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Malaysia, Ireland, Argentina, New Zealand, Ireland, and Australia, among others.   RED also breaks iTunes’s first-week U.S. sales record, with more than 464,000 albums sold. At Target, RED set the retailer’s new one-week sales record with more than 396,000 CD sold — Taylor’s Speak Now album previously held their record.-all about Taylor Swift

Hanging out with Taylor, no big deal-Roger

I know she's a hard working young woman. And somebody definitely knows how to hype up their music. I know a few that love anything this girl has to do with. They love her style. Her attitude. Her beauty.

Yet, even the likes of Hollywood Heights have taken a stab at creating an evil Taylor Swift with their Chloe Carter (Melissa Ordway).

However, this campaign with her new CD is sending a rush to be on everyone's Christmas list. So will it be on your list?

Every song on Taylor Swift’s Red it’s lovely, amazing and original. Now I’m in love ♥-Luis

I do like some of her songs. I don't really like the new one here, but I have one of her older CD's and I like all of the songs except for Tim McGraw.

She's definitely a bit of a powerhouse and a force to be reckoned with. She definitely churns out some great pop tracks.

She's good at what she does. She definitely knows how to sell herself. And we want it. Most of the time.
