Joel tells USA Today that he supports the selection of Taylor Swift as the tourism ambassador for New York City.
I see the New York press going, ‘Taylor Swift is going to be the new New York representative?’ You snoots. Let her in. That’s what New York is all about. I say, ‘Welcome.’ I think she’s a talented songwriter. She catches a lot of junk, maybe because she’s so popular with young girls. But I like what she’s projecting. I respect what she’s doing.
