Country-pop sweetheart Taylor Swift is back with her much anticipated release, Speak Now. The songs are more mature, Swift is almost 21, and now seem to come from real life instead of imagination. The album hits on everything from the Kanye West controversy, a rumored fling with John Mayer, and girlfriends of ex-boyfriends.
For fans of: Demi Lovato, Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus
