A singer, songwriter, actress, craftswoman, philanthropist, and now a contributor for Wall Street Journal? Somebody stop her

Busy? Nah. Taylor Swift has just landed a cool new job as a Wall Street Journal contributor.

The 24-year-old singer wrote an op-ed for the business newspaper, published yesterday, where she attributed the changing musical landscape to how everything is easily attainable digitally nowadays.

Piracy, of course comes to our minds, first thing. Taylor readily objects to piracy, saying "Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for."

Wildly optimistic about the future of the artist-fan bond, the I Knew You Were Trouble singer believes that the rising fascination on the lives of musicians and the greying of lines of genre distinction will keep the "love affair" between artist and fan going.

The question remains: will Taylor's contribution to WSJ be a regular thing? If so, will she get her own column, and what will her next topic of deep deliberation be? Cats? Break-ups? Making handmade gifts for your BFF? Consider us curious – enthralled, if you like – but whatever her chosen subject is, there had better not be Kanyeism-worthy quotes in it.
