I don't think she should be on this list. Not because I hate her, but because she did not release any music this year.

I think she belongs in the 2015 version of this list or the 2014 version of this list since that is when she actually released music.

Taylor Swift is the best singer. She is inspiring and amazing. I am a huge fan of her. I think she should be number one.
