Taylor Alison Swift was born 13th December, 1989, in West Reading, Pennsylvania, United States, she was named Taylor after the singer/songwriter James Taylor.At the age of 14 she became the youngest artist to be signed by ‘Sony/ATV Music,’ with her self titled debut Album in 2006, going on to become the longest charting Album of the 2000’s, on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.Over the course of her seven Album career to date, she has covered music genres as diverse as Country Pop, Synth Pop, Rock, and Hip-Hop.
Many of Taylor Swift’s songs are based on her real life experiences, and this one is rumoured to be about Swift’s relationship with Joe Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers, whom she dated for much of 2008, and Swift’s father who objected to the relationship.Swift had always been a fan of the William Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet, and likened her situation to that of those lovers, but instead of a tragic ending like that in the Shakespeare play, Swift opted for a happy ending, where her Romeo asks for her hand in marriage.
‘He knelt to the ground, and pulled out a ring, and said, ‘Marry me Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone.”
