Taylor Swift reveals biggest inspiration
Country-pop crossover star, Taylor Swift, has revealed her biggest source of inspiration as a performer.
The 'Love Story' singer explained to Billboard that her first trip to the theatre ignited her passion for the stage and spotlight:
"The first time that I fell in love with performing is when I went to go see theater in my hometown in Pennsylvania. I would see it done incredibly well, going to see Broadway plays of 'Wicked'."
"Things like that just really inspired me from an early age to love putting on a theatrical performance where there are storylines and characters, and you're always seeing a scene change into another scene. I love telling a story in any way possible."
She wanted to incorporate the drama and visual captivation of a Broadway-style show with the set up of her 'Speak Now' dates, which have just ended, and added:
"We spent months going over the set list and just thinking of where things would go, which ones would segue well into other songs and how we could tell individual stories," she noted. "I didn't want to tell one big story. I wanted each song to have its own story."
