My guilty pleasure is Taylor Swift, and I’m a diehard Swifty. I once paid $175 for floor seats in Chicago… So judge me! I love Taylor Swift and everything she stands for. I understand the arguments people have for why they don’t like her. Her songs sound the same to many people, they’re all about love, she dates boys just to write songs about them… blah, blah, blah. I understand what you’re saying, but I love Taylor Swift anyway.
She writes all her songs and puts such raw emotion into it. If you haven’t somehow noticed this, check out her perform All Too Well live… goosebumps, every single time. She’s a girl’s kind of girl, if you know what I mean. Like all, girls forever rule, and boys forever drool.. and suck. Suddenly all of Tswizzle’s songs have a new meaning to me. I could relate to the few songs about her success with love, but now I understand the rest of them about heartbreak. At least they all make sense now, although I would much rather be dreaming of Jake Gyllenhal breaking me like a promise, rather than my ex. Cuz Jake Gyllenhal… damn. Heck, I’d even settle for a miserable, John Mayer breakup. But we can’t all be Taylor Swift and bake perfect cherry pies and have those rockin’ forever long legs and be BFFs with Ed Sheeran. I love Taylor because she is thoughtful, creative, and for lack of a better word, classic. Classic in a way that she celebrates and cherishes everything that is old, authentic and good. She is elegant and vintage and classy.
The reason I started this post though is because I got to thinking about Taylor Swift one day. She never dates her exes… did anyone else realize this? I wondered why? I feel like it’s a principle… her own sort of rule to herself. Because also, what kind of role model would Taylor Swift be if she got back with her exes who played their dark twisted games on her and never thought she was funny and think indie records are much cool than hers? Well then she wouldn’t be Taylor Swift at all. (BTW what kind of guy could even think these things about her?!) But then I thought, maybe she doesn’t date her exes because she’s a super hott A-list celebrity and she could get whoever she wants……. or could she? So I started thinking about the pressures of being Taylor Swift, and boy there are a lot of them. She has always maintained this perfect image in the spotlight of the media, and to keep that up everyday of her life would be a nightmare. Any normal person would crack under all that pressure, but not my girl, Tswift… unless maybe she’s an alien or a robot or a cyborg orrrr a secret member of the Cullen family? That would explain everything.
She’s always wearing this Scarlet Letter of sorts that says she has dated so many guys and it never works out and then they become victims of her music. So maybe no one wants to date Taylor Swift after all? Or maybe they do for fame, because who knew of Conor Kennedy before Taylor introduced him to the world? Or maybe, just maybe, boys want to date her so they can be the one who got through, the one who hooked her forever, and ended Taylor’s reign as a pro at breakups. I wonder if Taylor thinks all these things, and if so, how could she ever trust a guy or even more, date one?
I could never be Taylor Swift, so much pressure and still so perfect.
How does she do it?
