Every time I bring up Taylor Swift, people (especially my family) talk about how great she is. She’s the cute, blonde-haired, blue-eyed innocent girl who everyone aspires to be. People talk about how her music is so meaningful and how she’s such a sweetheart and a great influence for little girls and yadda yadda yadda. In reality, however, Taylor Swift is horrible.
I feel like I’m the only person in the world who can see right through her facade. First of all, she went from writing “country” music (it’s in quotations because it was never really country music; her fan-base just called it that) to writing cookie-cutter poppy bullshit. She did that for one reason and one reason only – money. She dropped everything she believed in to make an extra buck because there’s more money to be made in catchy music in today’s day and age. If you don’t believe me, then I’d like to remind you that she took all of her music off of Spotify after releasing her most recent album. Why? Because there’s less money to be made through that then there is through album sales. While this is a fact, it’s also an incredibly selfish thing to do if you consider that she is 25-years-old and has a net worth of $200 million.
Yeah, she totally needs that extra couple million. Not like she’s set for life or anything. What pisses me off is that on top of all that, she has the gall to claim that she loves her fans. If you love your fans so much, why not let the less fortunate ones listen to your music? Maybe some people don’t have $20 to buy your f**king album, which you’ve already sold millions of in the first place. Do they just not count? Are they not “real fans” because they can’t afford you?
Speaking of albums, let’s talk about her music – it’s awful. I think what angers me most about it, though, is the fact that her songs are often written at someone else’s expense. She wrote a shitload of songs about Jake Gyllenhaal (“We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together” being one of them), she wrote “I Knew You Were Trouble” about John Mayer/Harry Styles (it’s debated), she wrote “Mean” about a music critic who thought she sang off-key (which she often does), and the list goes on. Personally, I think it’s pretty f**king “mean” to ruin someone’s reputation through song and, by doing so, build an entire army against them. In fact, “Mean” is probably the most despicable example I’ve listed because she tells the guy that he’s “pathetic,” that he will be “alone in life,” and someday she’ll be big enough so he can’t “hit” her.
The whole song just makes Taylor Swift look like a b*tch because she’s taking on a holier-than-thou attitude over a guy who had the f**king NERVE to do his job and criticize music. God forbid anyone should ever criticize the great Taylor Swift. She reaffirms this idea with her song “Shake it Off,” which explains that she shakes off the harsh words of “haters”. This song gives her devoted followers the opportunity to remain completely ignorant to any negative opinions of their lord and savior. Forget hearing any other sides of the story – they insulted Taylor so they’re wrong. It’s bullsh*t.
As for the rest of the songs about her ex-boyfriends, I will say this – all of those guys can’t be wrong. She even says so in her song “Blank Space” – got a long list of ex-lovers, they’ll tell you I’m insane. Yes, unnamed subject of this song; they’ll tell you that because they’re right.
If you’re reading this and you’re a Taylor Swift fan, you may be saying “how can you be such a hater if you don’t even know her?” Well, you mindless sheep, I’m not alone in my beliefs – even some of Hollywood’s biggest stars find Taylor Swift insufferable. Katy Perry (another “musician” from today’s day and age) straight up hates Taylor for being a “conniving b*tch,” TV host Kelly Osborne has openly mocked Taylor’s “false modesty,” talentless boy band One Direction has made it a point to insult her in concert, and so on. These opinions are justified not only because of reasons I’ve explained earlier, but…have you ever heard her do an interview? She’s playing a character. She tries so hard to seem laid back and modest that it’s almost painful. I can see why people who’ve actually met her would find her so terrible.
In closing, Taylor Swift is artificial. She only cares about money, her music career has been built upon making other people look like a*sholes, and she isn’t the “role model” that little girls like to think she is. She makes me physically sick to my stomach, and I think that she should just go the f**k away. Now.
