American country-pop singer Taylor Swift lived up to her name when her new single, the gloriously-titled We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, shot to the top of the iTunes chart in record time.
The 22 year-old premiered the song during a live webchat with fans yesterday.
When it was released to iTunes shortly afterwards, it beat the record set by Lady Gaga's Born This Way by taking the top spot in a reported 50 minutes.

t’s Taylor Swift’s world, and to think otherwise is to cheat on her, and then she’ll write a song about you and it’ll sell 17 million copies and THEN you’ll be sorry. It took all of a record-breaking 50 minutes for Swift’s newest BOYS ARE SUCH ICKY, INDIE RECORD-LOVING JERKS ballad for the sun-dress crowd, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” to hit #1 on iTunes, besting Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” That’s very impressive.

The latest case in point: Swift's fans (T-Swizzlers?) have proved to be more aggressive and enthusiastic than 25 million Little Monsters, as they helped Swift earn a new iTunes record.
She bested Lady Gaga in the process.
Within 50 minutes of its release last night, Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" shot to the top of the iTunes singles chart, knocking "Born This Way" from its perch as the fastest-selling single in digital history.
