Billboard has named Taylor Swift “Billboard Woman of The Year”. Taylor continues to break records, now becoming the youngest woman to ever receive this honor. The four-time Grammy winner has been the biggest selling artist in any genre within the past year beating out fellow chart topping artists Adele and Lady Gaga. The 21-year old singer/songwriter will receive the honor on December 2nd in New York City. Taylor Swift recently received her much deserved 2011 Billboard Awards, including Top Country Album for the five-time platinum selling album, “Speak Now”. Swift is currently nominated for six 2011 CMA Awards including Entertainer of the Year. We don’t see Taylor Swift’s star dimming anytime soon. We at “The High Up” and “Aspire Online Magazine” congratulate Taylor Swift on this amazing milestone and accomplishment.

Since T.I.’s release from a half way house last week, everyone has been wondering where the Hip-Hip star would pop up next. One place we weren’t expecting T.I to be spotted was at a Taylor Swift concert. T.I. recently joined Taylor Swift on stage at her concert for a surprise performance. Toward the end of Swift’s set on Sunday night, she introduced T.I by singing the chorus to his hit single, “Live Your Life” which originally featured Rihanna. The crowd at Phillips Arena roared in excitement as the “King of the South” took the stage. Taylor Swift has had surprise appearances before with notables such as Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj during her tour. The Sunday show was a makeup performance for a postponed July show. This is one of many appearances that T.I has made already since his release from the halfway house a week ago. Although any appearance by T.I now a days is cause for major excitement, Taylor Swift also brought out R&B super star Usher Raymond on stage last night in Phillips Arena while singing his chart topping hit, “Yeah”. Sounds like Taylor Swift provided an epic night for Atlanta along with the perfect compensation for her postponed show. I guess the wait was definitely worth it. Stay tuned for more information and news on T.I., Taylor Swift, and Usher Raymond. Also visit their sites, www.taylorswift.com , www.trapmuzik.com , and www.ushernow.com . Watch the electrifying performance by the superstars below.
