Taylor Swift: An Ode

Taylor Swift has had a rough time in the media lately. People, it seems, are no longer falling for the charm and innocence that she was once so widely praised for. And let’s be honest, the only person she truly has to thank for this “charming innocence” facade is Kanye. If he hadn’t interrupted her during his “rant-heard-around-the-world,” she would never have been able to play the victim card. That is her bread and butter.

2009 MTV Video Music Awards - Show

When she first started to get popular on the country music scene she was singing songs like “Teardrops on My Guitar” and everyone was like “Oh poor girl! Some jerk just kept ignoring her! That must be so hard!” Followers gained. Then the whole Joe Jonas “he broke up with me in a 27 second phone call” thing happened and people were like “Oh man! What an a-hole! I’ll never buy another Jonas Brothers CD ever again!!!!” Followers gained. Aaaaand then it started to get a little out of hand.

The line between “looking for love” and “looking for material for my next Platinum hit” started to blur. She began dating people seemingly just to be able to write songs about them. (Even my beloved Harry Styles!) Now I’m not going to say that I don’t love those songs and own all of her CDs…I’m just saying she needs to give up the act. She is no longer the victim of some mean boys trying to break her heart into a million little pieces. She is as equally to blame, if not more so these days, and I’m not buying it anymore.

That brings me to my next point. Taylor Swift, if she wants to people to stop hating her, MUST MUST MUST stop with the surprised face when she wins awards.

Girl has won ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY AWARDS. I think by now, she would probably be more surprised if she didn’t win. (In fact, here is her reaction shot when she lost to Adele at the Golden Globes. I think it says “I will cut you.”)


And now she is trying to play the victim card agaaaaain calling out Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for making jokes about her during their Golden Globes hosting duties. In her Vanity Fair article out this month, our girl Taylor referrenced the quote ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women’ in regards to their quip about her love life. Hmmmmm. I’m pretty sure that Tina and Amy are two of the biggest feminists in Hollywood. If you’re going to pick fights, don’t pick them with some of the most beloved and revered people in the game these days. Just a suggestion..

Anyway Taylor, #luvya, I’m just thinking that this might be a time for a little reflection and perhaps an overhaul of your image. What was once cute and sweet is now just annoying because you. are. a. superstar. No one feels bad for you. I’m rooting for you to do a complete-180 and become so insufferable to be around because of your insane confidence.

Nothing is more annoying than false modesty.

    Ok wow yes that surprised face has got to go. That video is insane. Also, whenever I see the girl I want to force feed her a sandwich. A big sandwich on thick crusty bread (like ciabatta or a baguette) just bursting with toppings. This sandwich would probably weigh more than she does.
