Is it really surprising that Taylor Swift has another hit album? The young country singer, who is easily one of the biggest stars in music, is about to enjoy the benefits of another successful hit. With her latest album "Red" now available, Billboard is predicting about one million sales during the first week. That would be an impressive number, and would certainly confirm that Taylor is a major force in music. The success of "Red" is just the latest bit of terrific news for the charming star, who has been remarkably busy as of late. Here is a look at some of the other things that Taylor has been up to in recent months.
She's been making the talk show rounds
As part of her "Red" promotional tour, Taylor has been making the rounds on various talk shows. This week alone, Taylor has appeared with both Ellen DeGeneres and David Letterman. She has also appeared on "The View" and "Good Morning America," and is also slated to appear with other country stars on a special edition of "20/20" this Friday. Obviously, fans of the star have had plenty of chances to catch up with Taylor as she celebrates her latest album.
She's a big philanthropist
Few young stars as dedicated to philanthropy as the 22-year-old Taylor. She has given her time to a wide variety of causes, including child literacy and education about the arts. Earlier this year, her hard work was recognized by Michelle Obama during an awards show. If that's not enough, Taylor will also receive a special honor from the Robert F. Kennedy Center in December. Other celebs to receive the honor include Bono, George Clooney, and Al Gore.
Her love life is as busy as everTaylor's love life is a frequent topic of conversation, and she has her music to thank for that. Given some recent news, it's safe to say that that talk isn't going away anytime soon. Reports are saying that Taylor has split from Conor Kennedy, the man she started dating over the summer. "They quietly parted ways a while ago," said a source. "It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine." Prior to this news, reports were suggesting that Taylor was having a fling with Patrick Schwarzenegger.
