Taylor Swift Offers Love Advice to a Young Fan

Not that she needs anything else on her plate, but it looks like Taylor Swift can add advice columnist to her resume.  A young fan of hers named Hannah, who goes by @sherbetswift on Instagram, reached out to Taylor and asked for advice on how to handle having feelings for a close guy friend who is perfect for her in so many ways, whom she has liked for years, but who has a girlfriend and will likely never return her feelings.


Taylor actually posted a lengthy response to Hannah basically telling her that her feelings were valid, and that unrequited love and the feelings that accompany it are just as valid and just as real as love that comes from being in a relationship with someone.  “It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling,” Taylor wrote.


She went on to tell Hannah that loving someone even though they will likely never love you back was a very selfless and beautiful thing.  And she closed by saying, “I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.”


Hannah was obviously thrilled to receive a response from her hero and told her, “You understand and that means so much. I feel like you’re the big sister I don’t have. Thank you, I really did need to hear that from you.”

Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts Has Awkward Phase Preserved on Band’s First Album Cover

We all have those awkward pictures we’d love to forget about from our youth when our fashion or hair choices weren’t the best.  Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts admits that, unfortunately one of his awkward phases will live in infamy on the cover of the band’s first album.  “I was wearing like a red turtleneck, out on a rooftop and it was 90 degrees outside. That’s a little embarrassing to go back by and have to see that,” he says.  “I went through that awkward, you know, goatee phase with the two silver hoop earrings and the really spiky hair. So, I’m kinda glad that that’s behind me.”


Fortunately, the guys’ fashion and hair choices have gotten better over time, as evidenced by the cover of their latest album, Rewind.

RaeLynn’s “God Made Girls” Spans the Generations



20-year-old RaeLynn had a hand in writing her new single, “God Made Girls,” and she says something unique happened in the writing room the day she wrote it.  “I actually wrote it with three of my best friends here in Nashville, Lori McKenna, Liz Rose and Nicolle Galyon,” she says.  “What I didn’t realize is, when we wrote this song, is I’m 20, one of the girls is 30 and the other one’s 40 and the other one’s 50.”


RaeLynn says it only took about an hour and a half for all the women to write the song.  “That’s what makes the song so special,” she says, “because you have all these different women in all their different perspectives of being a girl in this world, and you get four women together talkin’ about all the things that boys can’t do without girls and you’re gonna get a song like ‘God Made Girls’.”


“God Made Girls” will be on RaeLynn’s debut album, which will be released later this year.
