Are YOU a Taylor Swift superfan? This could be your dream...


She has the power to sway the US presidential election, helped save the American economy and made Grammy Award history this year.

Now the Victoria and Albert Museum has created a job for an official Taylor Swift expert.


The museum, in Kensington, west London, hopes to showcase memorabilia, handmade signs and merchandise associated with the pop star ahead of her upcoming European tour.

The lucky employee will hold the title of Taylor Swift Superfan Adviser and is expected to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the singer, with bosses wanting to give the job to a ‘studious Swiftie’.

It is one of nine new jobs the museum is introducing for superfans and collectors of Crocs, Pokemon cards, Lego, Emojis and Drag.

They hope the positions will drive knowledge within the museum and bring in grassroots expertise.

It comes after V&A-commissioned research revealed 44 per cent of Britons consider items in their own niche collections as worthy of a place in a museum.

V&A director Dr Tristram Hunt said: ‘These new advisory roles will help us celebrate and discover more about the enormous, and often surprising, creative diversity on offer at the V&A.’

Ms Swift’s Midnights won Album of the Year at the Grammys in February, making her the only artist to win the award four times.

Her Eras Tour, about to leave Australia, has made her more than $1billion (£790million) and the US economy $4.6billion (£3.6billion).

And the 34-year-old, who supported Joe Biden in 2020, could even sway the 2024 US election.

A poll by Redfield & Wilton Strategies last month found 18 per cent of voters were ‘more likely’ or ‘significantly more likely’ to vote for a candidate endorsed by Ms Swift.
