She’s a superstar. Tweeny girls love her. She sings and plays guitar, kind of. Taylor Swift is a household name and people around the world love her and her music. And (for some reason) young girls idolize her.
“If you’re the girl that needs a boyfriend, and once she loses that boyfriend needs to replace it with a different boyfriend, it’s just this constant stream of boyfriends all the time. I don’t feel like I ever want to be that girl. I want to be the girl that when she falls in love, it’s a big deal and it’s a rare thing.”
John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner, Connor Kennedy…they all beg to differ, sweetie. Y’all must have had very different definitions of what a “boyfriend” entails. Good thing you’re never ever ever getting back together with any of them, right?
Okay, I know…she’s a celebrity. Being in the tabloids and all the magazines is pretty much in the job description. Those who manage to avoid it are lucky and/or magical, and should probably share some of their tips and tricks with Miss Swift. The fact that she brings it all on herself by actively talking about her love affairs with celebrity magazines doesn’t help her case. If she wants to be out of the tabloids, then take a breather and don’t talk about your love life to the mags and reporters!
Which is funny, because she clearly doesn’t have that much trouble moving on…
I don’t know. I guess I’m just annoyed with her music and her acts. How can you pretend to be so coy and sweet when everyone can name at least four guys you’ve been with off the top of his head, with little hesitation?
And finally, have you seen the girl perform live? Every time I see her on an awards show or anything, I’m never impressed. Last night she sang “22” at the BMAs. She didn’t sound anything like what I hear on the radio, which is a testament to her abilities one way or another. Her actual voice is a little deeper than her recorded/edited/probably-autotuned-to-some-degree voice, and she didn’t sound as smooth as she does recorded. On that note, I’ve never watched a Taylor Swift performance and thought, “Wow, I’d spend money to see her in concert.” If I’m going to see someone in concert, that person/band better sound far and away better live than they do recorded.
Case in point: Carrie Underwood. My parents say Miranda Lambert put on a good show, too.
Don’t worry, though, the 12-year-olds still love you.
