Taylor Swift Scores Two Spots in Guinness Book of World Records
Taylor Swift leads a charmed (and apparently awards-filled) life. Now, the lovely and talented superstar can add two more feats to her resume. Swift can now lay claim to possessing two Guinness Book of World Records accolades in 2012. All of this at the age of 21, too. Congratulations, Taylor, on becoming a Guinness World Record holder!
So which achievements do Swift’s two Guinness Book of World Records mentions pertain to? Don’t worry. It’s not for baking the world’s largest cupcake or owning the most red lipsticks, though there are always strange records like that being achieved by someone. Swift’s are all music and career related, as she now holds the brand-new record for Fastest Selling Digital Album by a Female Artist, thanks to the brisk sales clip at which ‘Speak Now’ moved; the album sold 278,000 digital versions in November 2010. The other world record is for the Most Simultaneous U.S. Hot 100 Hits by a Female Artist, as the singer has enjoyed 11 back-to-back singles on the charts.
Here’s a memo to all of Taylor Swift’s potential boyfriends: If you break her heart, she will write about it on her records. She will then have the last laugh by proceeding to break music industry records and set Guinness Book of World Records high-water marks because of it. It’s reciprocal in Taylor Swift’s world! She turns life’s most sour lemons into a tall, refreshing glass of lemonade all through the vehicle of song.
