A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

The overriding message of these six new songs is that romantic relationships can be tough -- and while Swift doesn't shy away from expressing occasional frustration and sadness about them, she also doesn't advocate staying too long in relationships that just aren't right.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Taylor Swift continues to be a strong role model, maintaining both a super successful career and a respectable personal life.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that like all of Taylor Swift's music, her new FEARLESS PLATINUM EDITION CD/DVD is great for tweens: it contains nothing offensive, yet it's relevant enough for young adults to like.

What's the story?

Teen country singer Taylor Swift has fueled the flames of her sizzling hot career by releasing a "platinum edition" of her second CD titled Fearless, which itself has gone quadruple platinum. The new CD/DVD contains six new songs on top of the 13 that appeared on the original album, along with an altered cover, dozens of new photos from her 2009 Fearless Tour, music videos, and additional video footage of Swift. Like the dozen-plus tunes that came before, the six new tracks are squeaky clean, foregoing graphic language and content in favor of a realistic yet wholesome look at dating and relationships.

Is it any good?

Taylor Swift deserves very big props for writing almost all of her own songs, something that most of her contemporaries don't do. While her tunes, including these six new ones, aren't necessarily great feats of songwriting prowess, they are consistently and solidly good -- from their well-articulated themes of young relationships that make them so relatable to her adoring fans to Swift's lovely if not exceptionally powerful voice. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about Taylor Swift's career. How has she managed to become enormously popular without making a media spectacle of herself?

  • Though she's a huge star, what are some things that Taylor may have in common with any teen her age?

  • Do pop singers have a responsibility to be role models? Why or why not?
