All hail the queen of good girl pop, and her name is Taylor Swift.

There is no going over the edge or crossing the line for the 24-year-old, as she showed in her return to the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Monday night, the same venue she played in back in 2011.

This time, Swift is a little bit older and while it might be two years overdue, the song 22, taken from her latest album Red, best summed up her show - never mind cool kids and hipsters, "everything will be alright / If we just keep dancing like we're 22".

Decent as she may seem, she is not quite the ingenue - if all the stories of heartbreak and boys who have done her wrong are to be believed, Swift has gone through enough relationships to last her two cycles of young adulthood.
