No, Michael Jackson had none of that when he was 23. And finding artists lacking because they're not as memorable as Michael Jackson sounds like you're setting the bar pretty high.
Then let's move to someone who has been as successful as Swift was at a younger age, Mariah Carey. All before the age of 23.
"Make it Happen"
"Anytime You Need A Friend"
Not her biggest hits, but talking about something more than "Vision(s) of Love" or "Emotions." (EDIT) And the bar moves when you are as popular as she is. I think it reflects poorly on our culture that we reward this as pop music. She's a forgettable artist in my book.
