Taylor Swift now has a job to go along with her hit new single, "Welcome to New York." The singer, who fell in love with N.Y.C. after moving here earlier this year, has just been named the city's welcome ambassador for tourism. InStyle’s November cover girl made the announcement Monday on Good Morning America, where she was promoting the release of her latest album, 1989, which dropped today. The singer said being named the welcome ambassador, "was the craziest, coolest thing."

"New York was a huge landscape for what became this album. And it's affected my life in ways I am not even aware of yet fully." The singer added that NYC & Company (the Big Apple's official marketing organization) must have picked up on her enthusiasm for the city when they gave her the title.

"What makes New York City New York City is that it is unlike anywhere else in the world. It's almost like the city has its own heartbeat," Swift said in one of the official campaign videos. "Everywhere you look it's impossible not to fall in love or be affected by something in New York City." Head over to to see all of the videos, including one that explains why the singer moved and another that includes a vocabulary lesson.
