Taylor Swift’s 2022 is very exciting. After the release of her tenth album, “Midnights,” Taylor Swift’s production company Searchlight Pictures announced that she will direct and write the screenplay for her first movie.
She is one of the most famous artists in the world, and her fame and popularity have only grown after a busy year.
She has already worked in movies before.The news comes a week before her 33rd birthday, which is on December 13. She is one of the biggest music stars in the world, with more than 81 million monthly Spotify plays.
And this isn’t the first time she’s done something for a movie. She has already directed the 2021 short film “All Too Well: The Short Film” and the 2020 Disney+ documentary “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions,” which is about the making of her eighth album.
Swift doesn’t just like being behind the scenes, though. She has also had roles and cameos in movies like “Valentine’s Day,” “The Giver,” “Cats,” and “Amsterdam.” So, no one knows if she will also be in this next movie.
Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit dismissed after 5 years
After almost five years, Taylor Swift was finally able to “shake off” a copyright suit.
The lawsuit was first filed by songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler in 2017. They said that Swift stole lyrics from 3LW’s 2001 song “Playas Gon’ Play” to write her hit song “Shake It Off.”
But lawyers for the Grammy-winning singer and the two songwriters asked a California court to drop the lawsuit “in its entirety” on Monday, according to court documents that Page Six got.
Just a few weeks before the trial was set to start, U.S. District Judge Michael Fitzgerald officially threw out the lawsuit that same day.
Swift’s win comes just four months after she broke her silence on the matter and said she had “never heard” the song she was accused of copying.
According to Billboard, the singer said in court papers that she wrote all of the words to “Shake It Off.”
Hall and Butler said at first that the 33-year-old took the lines “Playas gon’ play / And haters, they gon’ hate” that they wrote and turned them into “Cause the players gon’ play, play, play, play, play / And the haters gon’ hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.”
Swift, on the other hand, strongly denied the claims and said that “players going to play” and “haters going to hate” are common phrases that have been “spoken countless times.”
“When I wrote the lyrics, I drew on some of my own life experiences, especially the constant scrutiny of my personal life by the public, “clickbait” reporting, public manipulation, and other forms of negative personal criticism that I learned I just had to shake off and focus on my music.
The singer of “Bad Blood” may be done with this copyright lawsuit, but she is being sued again over a book she published in 2019.
Back in August, Teresa La Dart sued Swift for more than a million dollars, saying that Swift copied her “Lover” poetry book for the “Lover” album’s companion booklet.
The lawsuit said that someone on Swift’s team saw La Dart’s book and decided to copy its “vibe and design” as well as its pink and blue color scheme.
Swift hasn’t said anything about the latest lawsuit in public.
