"A man does something, it's 'strategic'; a woman does the same thing, it's 'calculated.' A man is allowed to 'react'; a woman can only 'overreact.' It goes on and on and on. A man does something? 'Confident and bold.' A woman does it the same way, and she's 'smug.' A man 'stands up for himself'; a woman 'throws a temper tantrum.'
"I found out when it hit the news. Nobody knew. I couldn't believe who he sold it to because we've had endless conversations about Scooter Braun, and he has 300 million reasons to conveniently forget those conversations."
"Since my addresses are on the internet, I try not to say where I am, because people show up...there are imaginary marriages. I've had stalkers show up to my houses, armed."
"Well, when they stop coming to me, I’ll stop singing to them. People go on and on about how you have to forgive and forget to move past something. No, you don’t. You can move on without any of those things happening. It just becomes indifference."
After hearing Swift talk about the album for months, fans were chomping at the bit to get their hands on Swift’s latest work of art. Taking to her Instagram page last Friday, Swift wrote a meaningful message to fans before announcing that her album was officially available. “This album is very much a celebration of love, in all its complexity, coziness, and chaos. It’s the first album of mine that I’ve ever owned, and I couldn’t be more proud. I’m so excited that Lover is out NOW,” the “Our Song” songstress shared.
And Swift was right to be excited. Not only are fans loving her albums, but critics are as well. Swift is again being championed for her great songwriting skills as well as her unique sound. In celebration of the album’s success, Swift recorded a sweet video for her fans and posted it to her Instagram story. In the video, Swift is incandescent with emotion and displaying deep gratitude.
One of the best weeks of her life “I just have to say to you guys, thank you so much for one of the best weeks of my life. I can’t…I can’t thank you enough. Like, I couldn’t have imagined it going better, or being more fun, and getting to meet so many of you. And seeing all of the things that you were saying about Lover online was just like. It just..(gasp). I just love you guys. I’m really, really, really, lucky and I know it every, single, day. Thank you so much.”

Lover earned 867,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 29, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 679,000 were in album sales.
Both figures are the largest registered for any album in a single week since Swift’s reputation debuted with 1.238 million units in its first week, of which 1.216 million were in album sales (in the week ending Nov. 16, 2017).
Nothing but love! Demi Lovato made Taylor Swift’s day by praising the “Me!” singer’s new album, Lover.
After calling the song “Cruel Summer” a “jam,” the former Disney Channel star, 27, wrote on her Instagram Stories on Monday, September 1, “Life’s too short for women to not support other women.. especially when women release great music. Great job @taylorswift.”
Her post caught the attention of Swift, 29, herself, who reposted the message on her Instagram Stories later on Monday. “This is so awesome & put the biggest smile on my face,” she wrote. “Thank you @ddlovato.”
Taylor Swift got the last laugh in the war with Scooter Braun, as her new album “Lover” debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard charts.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Swift sold a total of 867,000 album units, with 679,000 being straight album sales.
Her last album “Reputation” debuted at no. 1 with a total of 1.238 million units in 2017.
“Lover” had the biggest first week sales for any artist since she released “Reputation”. The success of the new album means she broke some records.
Swift is now the only woman with six albums to sell at least 500,000 copies in a single week. The other albums include “Reputation”, “1989” (1.287 million), “Red” (1.208 million), “Speak Now (1.047 million) and “Fearless” (592,000).
The success of “Lover” means Swift is making a ton of cash that Braun won’t be able to touch. Braun recently dropped $300 million to buy the rights to Swift’s first six albums. “Lover” is not included in that deal with Braun.
