Taylor Swift’s dad sells her T’shirts at her shows.The 21-year-old country singer’s father Scott is her biggest fan and likes to be heavily involved at her concerts to show his support for his famous daughter. Taylor explained: ‘My dad is adorably optimistic, positive, pie-in-the-sky. He thinks every new song I write is my best. He sells T-shirts at my merchandise stands and hands out guitar picks to fans.’ Many fans have met Scott while at Taylor’s shows, and said how friendly he is. One US fan, Emily, told how she met the former stockbroker at a concert in Washington DC. She wrote on a fan site in June this year: ‘ got pit passes and met Scott (Taylor’s dad for anyone unaware) He came out and gave us guitar picks then my friend and I talked to him for a minute or two by the soundbooth during ‘Hey Stephen’. ‘ was so close to hugging Taylor but she had to turn around and go the other way to get back to the actual stage. But I touched her hand at one point during the show. And she looked right at me during ‘Fifteen’ on the moving stage.’
Taylor also told how she takes elements of her mother’s personality into her onstage persona too.
She said: ‘Mom is a planner, an organiser. She’s very strong and practical. She’s the person that’ll tell me if I ever start to change my personality. The balance of the two of them created my personality.’
Taylor Swift admits writing songs about her heartbreak is therapeutic. Taylor Swift finds love ‘confusing’. The 20-year-old country star – who has dated Taylor Lautner and was famously dumped by Joe Jonas on the phone ‘ struggles to cope with the complexities of dating and relationships and tries to make sense of her romantic life by writing songs inspired by her romantic liaisons. She said: ‘Naturally, I want to write songs about love and relationships because I find it find it all very confusing. When I meet someone new I live somewhere between hope and fear. Hope that this time it could be different, and fear that it will turn out like it has before.’ While Taylor admits writing songs about her heartbreak is therapeutic, she feels ‘vulnerable’ when she listens back to the lyrics. She told our source: ”ve written all the songs on it about things that have happened over the last two years, and a lot has happened over the last two years. It’s been very eventful, a lot of adventures and misadventures. I have a lot fun doing this and getting to write songs about what happens in my life, but putting it all out there in your music ‘ all the details ‘ you’re taking a chance with that because you are very vulnerable.’ Taylor also revealed she now hopes to put the Kanye West controversy completely behind her. At the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), the rapper interrupted Taylor in the middle of her acceptance speech for the Best Female Video prize to tell the audience Beyonce Knowles should have won, resulting in an avalanche of criticism. Taylor ‘ who, along with Kanye, performed at the 2010 VMAs in September – said: ‘For me, I felt like performing VMAs was the best way to go out there and sing how I was actually feeling, being there really helped put all that behind me.’
