    Sure, Taylor Swift tops the charts now but how long will that last? Should she step out of the spotlight, will she be able to stage a comeback?

    Consider the case of Garth Brooks, who sold record numbers of albums a decade ago but was greeted by a collective yawn when he dropped a new disc last winter.

    If she ever left for a little, Ifeel like she would still do really well when she came back. People love her.

    Didn’t Garth not allow ITunes to sell his album?

    Everything has a shelf-life in mainstream music. People can use Madonna as an example to dismiss this claim, but while she has had longevity, she didn’t maintain her mainstream dominance in the same way. So, while Taylor has been “slaying” for nearly ten years, times change and eventually her level of popularity will change. 

    As for the break thing, it really depends how long she takes. I don’t think Taylor has that Sade-isque charm that could make her comeback with open arms like that. I don’t think pop stars in general have that type of charm. But who knows?

    It depends if she lets her music grow up. If she keeps making music for teenyboppers, it won’t last long. If she can mature a little bit, she might last quite a bit longer.

    I don’t see her voluntarily taking an extended break, she doesn’t seem like the type. Eventually she’ll fall down the charts. I think there’s enough interest in her she could still have one flop era and still recover okay if the songs are there. She’s been able to change up her style enough it’s kept everyone interested. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but she’s easily the artist of the decade so far.

    Just wait for two more singles from 1989, maybe early next year, when
    she breakup with Calvin Harris, she will be announcing another album, when her
    tour finish too. I bet she will continue with her catchy bubblegum pop song,
    because they keep her on the charts. She will keep making song about
    ex-boyfriends, people who made fun of her, people who look at her funny or
    practically people who did nothing to her. I found her and her songs pretty annoying.

    I think she’ll be around for the long haul, but at some point her popularity will decline and she won’t be as dominant a force on the radio.     It will be interesting to see how her career develops long-term.      I mean a lot of hugely popular singers eventually faded from the spotlight; I mean Faith Hill, Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, Toni Braxton—- at one point they were all huge and then for various reasons their careers stalled or they faded from prominance.

    Isn’t she already 9-10 years in the game?
