Lately, it seems like every celebrity is writing YA nowadays. From Tyra Banks’ Modelland to Hilary Duff’s Elixir series, YA is becoming a popular genre. Heck, even Lauren Conrad and Snooki are becoming apart of the YA world, and even though I’m not a huge fan of all her music, there is one girl who I think could write a few YA novels of her own.
I bet you can guess who she is.
1. Most of her fans are teens.
Sure, I’ve met a few 2nd graders who LOVE T-Swift, and moms who like her more than the average teenager, but at the end of the day, Tay Tay’s fans are usually around the ages of 12-17.
There’s a reason for that.
It’s simple: teens relate to her songs. How many high school girls do you know of who put Taylor Swift lyrics as their Facebook/Twitter status and are always first in line to buy her newest album?
If the answer isn’t “more than I can freaking count”, you probably don’t know a lot of teenage girls.
The girl knows how to connect with the female youth, yo. Maybe not all of us, but enough of us.
2. She’s a good story-teller.
Okay, so homegirl’s no Bob Dylan or William Shakespeare, but she’s got some pretty good stories to tell. No, seriously. Doesn’t You Belong With Me sound like the perfect story for a contemporary YA novel? Or how about Fifteen?
I believe that, with the right team, T’s got it in her to whip out a good YA novel or two.
3. She’s Taylor-freaking-Swift.
…Do I gotta say more?
