7 things we learned from Taylor Swift's livestream

Entertainment Tonight

Taylor Swift revealed her new song "Shake It Off," a music video for it and a new album coming out called "1989." And yet, all of this was not enough for one Monday live stream because she revealed 7 more things.

1. She was inspired by 80's pop saying, "Bright colors, bold chances, rebellion. The idea of that was so inspiring to me  and the idea of endless possibility was a theme in the last year of my life."

2. Taylor records her music that comes to her mind as voice memos on her phone, and three of these memos will be included on the deluxe version of "1989."

3. Taylor's hair is different on every album, and she knows this because she's organized. "I'm very organized in weird ways, and I like to look at old pictures and look at my hair and say, 'Oh, that was the second album.'"

4. All she "thinks about are metaphors and cats."

5. She'll continue the secret messages because she thinks we like them and we LOVE them! How else would we know which songs on "Red" were about Jake Gyllenhaal?

6. Goodbye, country music! She is officially going full pop to make her "sonically most cohesive album."

7. Taylor likes to spend two years making an album. She says, "Two years gives you enough time to grow," and her music changed.

"1989" will be released on October 27.

Wait until she starts the transition to dirty girl. It's going to be more awkward and pathetic than Smiley Virus has been.

Slam! Bang! Thank you Mam .... wow! 99% of the respondent are "Tare the girl apart". Hit the thumbs down button because I'm going to disagree. Personal opinions are one thing and we are all entitled to them -but- Taylor is:  Young, Beautiful, Talented and very, very rich. She does pretty darn good for someone whose non of the traits I mentioned according to a lot of you. Doesn't make any difference what anyone says -- she sitting on top of the world and you're sitting in front of a computer.

My first thought was "hallelujah" she is leaving "country music".  But country music hasn't been country for a few years now.  It's country pop or country rock and even country rap.  About 90% of country artists are not doing country music like George Strait, Alan Jackson, Conway Twitty, Jo Dee Messina, George Jones,  Patty Loveless, John Anderson, etc. did good country music.  I don't listen to the garbage put out today unless I hear about one of the true country artists has put out a new CD.  Then I go to iTunes and listen to their newest music.  If they've sold out to country rock I don't buy.  That includes the screeching Carrie Underwood and yelling Miranda Lambert.  Taylor thinks she's ''growing''.  All of her songs sound the same and are about the same thing ... breakups.

To check your head: All of these Managers/Producers are into making the $$$$ So what do they do.........??? They bring them in as sweetness and then turn them into Nasty. Before anyone gets out of control, I am not saying Taylor is Nasty "Yet", but Miley Cyrus, Brittney Spears, YUP. They didn't start out like that. The fans want the Naughty, because the world has turned into a mess!
