Taylor Swift shows off major midriff while out in New York City on Monday afternoon (July 7).
The 24-year-old singer/songwriter recently wrote an insightful article for the Wall Street Journal on where the music business is going in the future.
“There are a few things I have witnessed becoming obsolete in the past few years, the first being autographs,” she wrote. “I haven’t been asked for an autograph since the invention of the iPhone with a front-facing camera. The only memento ‘kids these days’ want is a selfie. It’s part of the new currency, which seems to be ‘how may followers you have on Instagram’.”
Taylor continued, “A friend of mine, who is an actress, told me that when the casting for her recent movie came down to two actresses, the casting director chose the actress with more Twitter followers. I see this becoming a trend in the music industry. For me, this dates back to 2005 when I walked into my first record-label meetings, explaining to them that I had been communicating directly with my fans on this new site called Myspace. In the future, artists will get record deals because they have fans—not the other way around.”
FYI: Taylor is wearing the Reformation Clinton Two Piece in Jingle and carrying a Kate Spade New York purse.
