Taylor Swift has been named as one of the world's most powerful women

It's official: Taylor Swift is unstoppable. The 25-year-old singer is breaking records left, right and centre and her latest achievement is to be named as one of Forbes' 100 Most Powerful Women, making her the youngest woman ever to be featured on the annual list.

Tay, who comes in at number 64 (23 places behind the Queen who is also the oldest on the list), gained her place, according to Forbes, because she has 'not only broken record sales and captivated the world with her fantastically honest lyrics, but she has proven herself as an impressive businesswoman.'

Taking the top spot is German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been named the World's Most Powerful woman nine times now.
