Taylor Swift is one of the most iconic musicians of all time. Till date, she holds the record of most Billboard Music Awards won by a female artist and has won 10 Grammy awards all at the young age of 29. A remarkable musician whose songs speak for her life and her feelings, Taylor Swift has no doubt captured the hearts of many as we watched her struggling through heartbreak, bad reputation and now, being once more (but more surely) in love.

Taylor Swift's music career has been through many turns and changes. She jump-started her career as a country singer, transitioning to a pop singer slowly through the "Red" album. The "Red" and "1989" album was the first album that took her from "love is lovely" to a shift towards heartbreak masked with (in some tracks) upbeat music. This slowly morphs into a bad girl don't care feel with the "Reputation" album, singing lyrics that respond to her controversies and bad reputation at the time.

So far, things seem to have settled down as Taylor picks herself up in the good days that followed, with the newest album "Lover", almost seems like a full circle back to her older days with songs that love. Delicately soft, yet sprinkled with hints of pop, it seems like she is truly in a happy place now, and we're really happy for her.

1) 13 is Her Favorite Number

Try spotting how she incorporates this number into her albums, tracks placements, lyrics, music videos, and even in concert! According to Taylor, she says that "I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album [Taylor Swift] went gold in 13 weeks. My first #1 song had a 13-second intro. Every time I've won an award I've been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter. Basically whenever a 13 comes up in my life, it's a good thing."!
