Lori Landew, entertainment lawyer, told Forbes magazine that Swift's appeal comes from her ability to reach a diverse, global audience with her cross-genre music: "She has been building her fan base for years, and that fan base crosses multiple market segments."
"It's this ability to appeal to younger and older audiences, and those in between, that makes Taylor such a sure bet with both concert promoters and brands who want to affiliate with her and with the community she has cultivated."
