Taylor Swift Bests Lady Gaga, Sets New iTunes Record

by at . Comments

This just in: Taylor Swift is very popular.

The latest case in point: Swift's fans (T-Swizzlers?) have proved to be more aggressive and enthusiastic than 25 million Little Monsters, as they helped Swift earn a new iTunes record.

She bested Lady Gaga in the process.

Within 50 minutes of its release last night, Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" shot to the top of the iTunes singles chart, knocking "Born This Way" from its perch as the fastest-selling single in digital history.

While fans try to determine just which ex-boyfriend Taylor is singing about this time around, the artist prepared them last night - during a live Web chat - for another emotional album.

Speaking of October's "Red," the superstar previewed:

"All the different emotions that are written about on this album are all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years.

"All those emotions - spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that - in my mind, all those emotions are red. You know, there’s nothing in between. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings."
