Taylor Swift on track to set record amid breakup rumors

Taylor Swift is on track to join the very short list of artists and groups who’ve had back-to-back albums sell a million units in a week.

In the Nielsen SoundScan era, which dates back to 1991, just the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and Eminem have accomplished the fete, each with albums releasing between 1999 and 2002, Billboard reports.

If Swift’s “Red” hits the million mark by Sunday, the country-pop princess will become the first artist in a decade, and first ever female, to achieve the same success. Her last studio album, “Speak Now,” sold more than a million units during its debut week in November 2010.

But before we go deeming this Swift’s (potential) “best week ever,” we should note, the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer reportedly parted ways with beau Conor Kennedy, according to US Weekly.

Taylor Swift's 'no rules' approach to love

As evidenced by some of her songs, Taylor Swift's pretty in love with talking about love - falling in it, falling out of it, and all of the things that happen in between.

And so it follows that, during an interview with Rolling Stone, Swift found herself sharing her personal love philosophy:  "The way I look at love, you have to follow it, and fall hard, if you fall hard. You have to forget about what everyone else thinks. It has to be an us-against-the-world mentality," she said.

Joe Jonas: Swift's new song isn't about me

Taylor Swift is a pro at turning heartbreaks into earworms, and her latest single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” is no exception.

For some fans, guessing which of Swift’s ex-boyfriends inspired lyrics like, “Then you come around again and say, ‘Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change,’” is half the fun. But Joe Jonas, who dated the country-pop princess in 2008, insists it wasn’t him.
