She recently learned that her devoted fan base includes one Taylor Swift, when the pop sensation tweeted in March “One of the only unchanging things about my life in the last 10 years is my love of Paramore, Ingrid Michaelson, Fall Out Boy & Coldplay.” That connection has only grown from there.
"And then I met her at an event," Ms. Michaelson says, "and we exchanged phone numbers and I said, ‘If you want to come to my show in New York…’ and she’s like ‘Of course, I’ll come.’ And she’s so famous and busy, you don’t expect people like that to show up, but she did, she came, and then she tweeted a very sweet tweet, and then everyone and their mother was like ‘Ah!’ That girl’s got some power. She’s got like 40 million followers on Twitter, so yeah, I think I got a lot more Taylor Swift fans as fans. They’re very sweet."
She counts herself as a mutual fan.
"Her latest record has got some amazing pop songs and some really beautiful singer-songwriter songs. She’s experimenting with different sounds and I think we have so many years of her, it’s only going to get better and better."
