Art imitates life and, as far as popular music is concerned, Taylor Swift is currently the top artist in terms of cashing in on her tumultuous life (but mostly dating) experiences. The singer-songwriter ranks third in Forbes’ list of highest paid females in Hollywood for 2012 (next only to Oprah and Britney Spears), raking in a whopping $57 million in annual earnings between May 2011 and May 2012. I say not a bad tradeoff for being dumped by Jake Gyllenhaal via text and the whole ordeal of being in a relationship with John Mayer.

This, of course, is by no means a new thing. Alanis Morissette’s ’You Oughta  Know’ was about 90’s actor Dave Coulier – who admitted  it was probably about him. no need to call a toll free number of some marginally reputable record producer in the ‘hood to show the world your talent for creating genuinely heartfelt angsty tunes. While you can take your cue from Rebecca Black by having your parents pay a professional crew to produce your very own music video (which kind of defeats the original point of fame - earning money, not spending it), all you really need to do is show off your personality while singing your self-composed masterpiece about the dilapidated state of your heart. Hopefully, and if you’re ‘true to yourself’ enough, many will recognize the very same experiences you talk about in your song and, who knows, maybe they will help you get your million-strong fan base who will sing along and weep and buy your records because YOU. SIMPLY. GET. IT.

Promotional activities

Admittedly, you don’t have Taylor’s promotional machinery and the luxury of your own publicist; so use the most powerful means at your disposal to tell everyone about your awesome new song - social networking sites. Post statuses and tweet smarmy lyrics that may or may not be a part of the song. Update your contacts on how the whole creative process is going. You know what? You can even share artwork inspired by the song as early as two months before it drops. This will surely generate hype and build anticipation for your debut single. [u1]Very engaging, but potentially too many commas. ^^;
