YEAH FUCK YOU
The funny thing about this is that her breakup songs garner infinitely more attention than the non-breakup songs.
After all, it’s not quite so easy to ignore the fact that an artist releases a song as a single where it contains a line that says, “That’s fine, I’ll tell mine you’re gay,” and receives such a negative response as a result that she changes the line and re-issues it as an attempt to cover her ass and be like SRY GAYS I MEAN GUYS JK LOLOLOL I SUPPORT U
It’s also difficult to ignore the fact that she released two versions of Forever and Always, with the first version being fast and assaulting, where the second version released was accompanied solely by a piano and making her paint herself as the victim. Again.
Or the fact that she fucking remixed You’re Not Sorry to help promote her episode of CSI.
Or the fact that, without naming names, she says Camilla Belle is “better known for the things that she does on the mattress.”
For being a very popular 23-year-old idol to many impressionable girls, she is not setting a positive example for them.
So, let me say this once and only once: The number of her breakup songs doesn’t mean a thing; it’s their influence and the way she presents herself in accordance with them that truly causes her to garner such a powerfully negative air with regards to them. The content of the music is where the negativity is spawned, and just because she has almost twice as many non-breakup songs to breakup songs in her catalog doesn’t mean a damned thing, and not to mention that some of her non-breakup songs are just as bad.
Like Mean, for instance. “All you are is mean, and a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life and mean.”
Or You Belong With Me. “She wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts.” So, what, it’s wrong for a girl to wear short skirts if she wants to? That automatically makes her a target?
Or, how about Stay Stay Stay. Let’s look at the fucking opening lines— “I’m pretty sure we almost broke up last night; I threw my phone across the room at you.”
Way to go, Taylor. Even though that’s not a breakup song, you’re still doing a hell of a job conveying a positive message to your impressionable listeners.
But then again, what do I know. I mean, it’s not like I have listened to every single song she has ever commercially released since the beginning. It’s not like I’m familiar with all of her content. It’s not like I have a single goddamned clue as to what I’m talking about.
Don’t you ever fucking tell me that just because she has less breakup songs than non-breakup songs that that somehow makes the things she does somehow okay or better.
