Taylor Swift Sets Another Record
Taylor Swift is amazing. She has already had an unbelievable career, one most singers only dream about, in just a few years. And, most people feel she has only just begun. And, to think, she won't turn 22 until December.
Over the last few years — and multi-platinum albums — she has taken up seemingly permanent residence on the charts, not to mention the hearts and iPods of millions of fans.
Now, she also has a pair of spots in the Guinness Book of World Records to call her own.
Swift is the brand new record-holder in the Fastest Selling Digital Album by a Female Artist category, earned for sales of her latest CD, ‘Speak Now.’ She’s also been given the title for the Most Simultaneous U.S. Hot 100 Hits by a Female Artist, with a whopping 11 hit singles at once.
After receiving the news, Swift looked back on her pre-fame days, remembering her childhood dreams of making it big in the music industry. “I would think about how lucky I would be if people cared about the words I wrote,” she said. “I would think about how lucky I would be if one day I was walking through a mall and saw a little girl with my face on her T-shirt. I would think that if one day anyone lined up to ask me to sign something of theirs, that would be a good day!”
