Country music star Taylor Swift is spearheading a campaign to protect children from online predators.
The 17-year-old singer, who launched her career through her MySpace.com page, has teamed up with Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen to combat internet sex crimes.
The teenager says, "Chatting with friends and surfing the internet is cool. But it's important to stay safe. Be smart about keeping your identity private online."
The year-long campaign, launched in partnership with the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police, will distribute internet safety information and materials to parents and students across the state.
