LOS ANGELES – In the last few months, several songs have become viral hits because of their empowering lyrics.

Taylor Swift just released her latest single and hopes to do the same by telling her listeners to ignore what people say and just be themselves.

The fans were chosen from a variety of social media fan sites.
