Once again all the biggest news stories do not stand a chance against Taylor Swift. As many of you already know, the latest buzz surrounding Swift is in regard to her Tumblr post, “To Apple, Love Taylor”, where she expressed her extreme disappointment with Apple’s current decision not to pay musicians during Apple Music’s three-month launch period.

Taylor Swift is the name on everybody’s lips nowadays. She just dropped her fourth album, 1989, in October, and it sold more copies in its first week than any other album in the past 12 years. With this album, she moved away from her country roots, and she says that it’s her first true “pop” album. With this album, she hosted secret listening parties for her superfans at her homes in LA, NYC and her parents’ home in Nashville before it was released. She baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for her guests to enjoy, and when she was finished singing, she took Polaroid photos with every single person she invited. She even let them pose with her various awards and her cat, Olivia Benson.

One Direction make world domination look so easy! Next week I’m going on holiday to Canada to visit my relatives. I’ve asked my cousins if I could bring them anything, perhaps a selection of British teas, or some decent chocolate as I’ve heard theirs is awful, maybe even Royal Family paraphernalia complete with photo of adorable Prince George? No, they don't want any of that. What they desperately want to get their hands on are our shiny One Direction books.
