The perception that she outs her past love interests in a mean spirited and publicly humiliating way is the core of her problem.
As long as she doesn't name names, what's the problem?

It shouldn't be a problem, but some people seem to take it personal. Hopefully the sentiment fades, she's not the devil after all.

Re: Taylor Swift, Why The Hate?

I guess I have no problem with her, but like I said I take a rather dim view of country artists who sell out and go pop. Traditional country music isn't dead!

Re: Taylor Swift, Why The Hate?

Was she ever all that "traditional"? Why is it "selling out" if she ( or anyone ) goes more pop?

Because real country artists don't get any airplay anymore, it would seem.

Re: Taylor Swift, Why The Hate?

For the last twenty years, what has been called "country" by most people has basically been "songs that kinda sound like Hotel California".

As far as I'm concerned, the last time country music has felt vivid and interesting was during the short-lived "alt.country" movement.

Taylor Swift going pop won't change that. She wasn't exactly real country when she started.

Taylor Swift has a face like a horse? For a second I thought I accidentally clicked on a thread about Sarah Jessica Parker.

Some people don't have a life and have all the time in the world to complain.

Their loss if they want to take the time to complain about something instead of taking the time to enjoy something.

Also, welcome to the Internet.


Sometimes I forget!



ETA: The internet being what it is, I don't get hating on something Vs enjoying something, there are plenty of things I don't like but I'd rather spend the time and energy on stuff I like/love/enjoy.
I put up ten songs that I like! I classied up the thread with real music!
All music is real music.
