But not everything that shines is gold in the world of the stars. Last Sunday, the media echo of another Chapter in the struggle of the artist for the rights to his music. Less than a month of his 30th birthday –reconciled on 13– December – Swift with her past and seeks the control of your success.

This summer, the artist becomes a public dispute with the founder of their old record label, Scott Borchetta, and with the representative Scooter Braun began the bought the company this year.

The boy is already aware of what is important, such as the cancer of her mother, the fight against this disease a second time. “It taught me that there are real problems and then everything is different. (…) Is now my worry, stress, and my prayers are dedicated to this,” he said.

An example for this growing maturity in their relationship with the British, Joe Alwyn, the 28-year-old had been at the MET gala in 2016. Next to him is maintained, and a relationship has to be discreet and away from the herd, also with a view to increasing awareness of the actor successfully the last years. The singer had to learn to select the form of exposure to the public. The fight against brown will be added to the offender that have tried the input button repeatedly in several of its properties.
