Swift, in the middle of an aggressive media blitz (a Hollywood Boulevard performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! was her most recent), will lead what promises to be a star-packed lineup for the annual New Year’s Eve broadcast, which begins live Wednesday, Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. from Times Square. Though no specifics were revealed, Swift — who last performed in the 2013 edition — is expected to perform “her hit songs.”
It’s going to be a busy few months for Swift, who appeared on Good Morning America on Monday for an interview with Robin Roberts. Four days later on Oct. 30, she will return to the stage for a GMA concert, performing songs from the new album. Swift is also slated to appear and perform on CBS’ The Late Show With David Letterman on Oct. 28, as well as sit on The View couch on Oct. 29.
The first single from the album, “Shake It Off,” has topped 2 million downloads since its August release and hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her second song, “Out of the Woods,” co-penned by fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart. This year, she will be awarded Billboard’s Woman of the Year honor for the second time.
“Each year New Year’s Rockin’ Eve continues its iconic legacy by delivering incredible performances from the year’s hottest artists, and this year is no exception,” said host and executive producer Ryan Seacrest. “We already have secured an unprecedented number of music acts, culminating with a Times Square performance by Taylor, the biggest superstar in music today.”

Los Angeles, CA – On Thursday, October 23, seven-time GRAMMY Award-winner Taylor Swift will close down Hollywood Boulevard for an exclusive concert before thousands of fans on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Taylor will also be the late-night host’s in-studio guest in her first late-night appearance to promote her highly anticipated new album “1989” featuring the No. 1 international hit “Shake It Off,” which has topped Billboard’s Pop, HotAC and Hot 100 charts and exceeded sales of two million downloads.
On Monday, October 27, the release day of “1989,” Taylor will appear on “Good Morning America” for a sit-down interview with ABC News anchor Robin Roberts. Later that week, on Thursday, October 30, the superstar returns to GMA for an epic concert in the heart of New York City, where she will perform multiple songs from “1989.”
On Wednesday, October 29, Taylor will be the featured guest on “The View,” where she will talk with Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace about the success of her new album and her career. Taylor writes all of her own songs and is the youngest artist in history to win the music industry’s highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at No. 1 with three consecutive studio albums.
Taylor Swift can’t shake this award off.
The singer has been named the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year — the first artist to ever receive the honor twice.
“As one of the most influential artists of her generation, Taylor Swift has seen incredible success on the Billboard charts,” said Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media’s Entertainment Group, which consists of Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter. “Over the course of her career, she’s charted 60 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 — the most of any female artist since her debut in 2006. We are tremendously excited to be honoring her as the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year for the second time.”
The award goes to the female artist who “has shaped and inspired the music industry with her success, leadership and innovation over the past twelve months.”
Taylor Swift is a seven-time Grammy winner, and is the best-selling digital music artist of all time. She’s also the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure (2010’s Speak Now and 2012’s Red). Swift made her latest chart headlines when her newest single, “Shake It Off,” became her second Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, following “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
“On behalf of American Express, I would like to congratulate Taylor Swift on this incredible honor,” said Deborah Curtis, vice president of entertainment and sports marketing at American Express. “We are proud to be a long-time partner of Taylor’s and are thrilled for her continued success and well-deserved recognition as Billboard’s Woman of the Year.”
Swift will be feted at the 9th annual Billboard Women in Music Awards on Dec. 12 in New York City.
She’s previously released three perfumes, which have proved popular with adoring fans.
And now American singer Taylor Swift is releasing a fourth scent, but this time the fragrance will be launched in Australia in November.
The 24-year-old is expected to touch down in Oz in the coming months and while Down Under she will debut her brand new album in 1989.
The Grammy Award-winner’s new fragrance will be exclusively available at department store Myer on November 23, before selected pharmacies and rival department store David Jones will also stock the perfume from December 7.
The scent is a composition of velvety petals and creamy woods, wrapped in a soft veil of vanilla and musk.
While unlucky for some, the singers favourite number 13 is embossed in the gold metalized cap.
Taylor’s upcoming trip to Oz will see her promote her new album 1989 as well as her hit song Shake It Off.
She will also perform during the grand final of X Factor Australia in late October, bringing her unique energy to the reality show.
