Taylor Swift on "Lover" and haters

After only 13 years since the release of her first album, Taylor Swift has become a musical force of nature, with an armload of #1 hits, more Grammy Awards than The Rolling Stones, and (according to Forbes) the distinction of being the highest-paid celebrity on the planet. By any measure, an astonishing young woman. But there were times, she tells Tracy Smith, that being young, and a woman, has worked against her. She opens up to Smith about songwriting; her supportive family; critics and stalkers; the sale of her back catalog; and what the future looks like to her. She also invites Smith on the set of the new music video for her latest album, "Lover."

Seratones, a group of rockers from Shreveport, Louisiana, got together in 2013 and created a rock-and-roll sound influenced by soul and punk. Three years later, they released their first album – and they had their first TV debut on CBS. On Friday, the group released "Power," their second studio collection, and began a 35-city international tour. Seratones performs three of its hit songs.
