Country music darling Taylor Swift plans to repeat all four years of high school in an attempt to find inspiration for her upcoming album. The gorgeous Grammy winner said singing about the harsh realities of the teenage years has been a winning formula in the past. The singer, who has dated many wealthy, handsome celebrities such as Nick Jonas, is known the world over, and earns several million dollars each year, believes her music connects with the average girl because she lives the average girl's life.
"I had a tough time in high school, especially with boys," says the singer named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in 2009. "And I wasn't popular, AT ALL!" said the former cheerleader and student body president. "I often cried myself to sleep at night about some boy who didn't know I was alive," said the woman literally billions of men would kill just to have a date with.
And Swift plans to mine her fairy tale past further. "I just loved growin' up in the country and goin' to that one room school house," said the sylph who grew up in a middle class suburb outside Philadelphia with a large regional high school. "I miss the farm," continued the chanteuse who grew up on a half acre lot in the house paid for by her father's income as a stockbroker. Credulous country music listeners wouldn't know the difference given that less than two percent of Americans are employed in agriculture, the majority of them as hired labor on gigantic corporate farms committed to low wages, no benefits and dumping workers it injures onto public welfare rolls. One such agribusiness concern is Tyson, of which Swift owns a controlling share.
Swift couldn't be reached for further comment because she was busy taking notes from "The Grand Ole Opry's Big Book of Country Music Cliches For Songwriters."
