Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Country music sweetheart Taylor Swift rocked Washington, D.C. Tuesday, even as the Washington Post runs out of adjectives to describe this well-grounded superstar.
Great photos of Taylor and a concert review that positively swoons.

The Washington Post
For Taylor Swift and a sea of squealing fans, Verizon Center show is a lovefest
By Jessica Goldstein

On Tuesday night, the sparkly-dressed and curly-tressed masses swarmed the Verizon Center. They had to come to see her, she whose name is never just spoken but is squealed, gasped, breathed: “Taylor!”

They were speaking, naturally, of Taylor Swift, the country-pop star whose “Speak Now” tour has a two-day stop in Washington. Swift’s disciples arrived in homemade T-shirts and cowboy boots with moms and best friends in tow. They expressed nothing but love — omigosh, LOVE, hands in a heart shape held over the heart for double-hearting emphasis love — for the current poet laureate of puberty.

My previous blog post on Taylor Swift, on October 12th, 2010, featuring lots of behind-the-scenes videos of her and her band and friends from an NBC-TV special many of you probably never saw, was titled, Taylor Swift's impression of "Minnesota Soccer Mom" on BBC 1's Switch with Annie and Nick; Dateline: On Tour With Taylor Swift

“She’s so normal,” said Abby Sisson, 16. “You can imagine her being your best friend. ... Every situation that you’re in, there’s a Taylor Swift song for it.”
Years from now, Taylor's fans will still remember that concert in Washington like it just happened: the sounds, the scene, who they were with, what they wore... and they'll remember the lyrics to the songs as if there was never a time in their life that they didn't know them by heart.
That's Taylor's genius.
