Taylor Swift - Why The Hate? Pt II

She is harmless!!! Why do people hate on her? She isn't Miley Cyrus doing ridiculous stunts, she isn't Justin Bieber breaking laws! She does no wrong and seems like a positive influence. She can't sing? She can. She isn't talented. She is. She is ugly. No, she is quite beautiful. I love her and don't get the hate.

Her personal life is her's. She does sing about it but I don't judge. People slut shaming her is awful. Ugh.

Re: Taylor Swift - Why The Hate? Pt II

The way I see it, she's hated because like mos of her pop contemporaries, she really isn't saying anything musically. As Marvin Gaye put it when he talked about why he made What's Going On:

"My success didn't seem real. I didn't deserve it. I knew I could have done more. I felt like a puppet—Berry's puppet, Anna's puppet. I had a mind of my own and I wasn't using it."


Taylor Swift's a nice gal, but she needs to sing about something other than falling in love; Gaye came to this catharsis after Kent State, saying 'The prospect of singing songs about the moon and June didn't appeal to me anymore.' That same kind of thing needs to happen with Perry, Bieber, and a couple of others (Lorde and Lily Allen have already painted the way with their songs, in particular Allen's song Fuck You [Very Much] from 2009 and Lorde's song 'Royals' about pushing opulence in people face's during a economic downturn-these are the kind of songs that Swift should be singing.)

Re: Taylor Swift - Why The Hate? Pt II

This sums up what I don't like about Taylor Swift.

Re: Taylor Swift - Why The Hate? Pt II

I neither like nor dislike her. I've never heard her music, and don't really care about it. But I do think she's quite beautiful, so I enjoy looking at her. But I wouldn't care if she retired into obscurity tomorrow.

I heard her music before seeing her and liked her music. I like a lot of stuff that sucks.

Re: Taylor Swift - Why The Hate? Pt II

I admit I find it more than a little amusing how she's turned her exes into fodder for song lyrics. Although John Mayer wouldn't agree...

I've got no strong opinions one way or the other. The only song of hers I'll go out of my way to listen to is her collaboration with The Civil Wars, but I won't turn her music off either.

Why would that be amusing? Song writers do it all the time.

Swift slut shames plenty in her own songs. She perpetuates the stereotype that anyone who isn't a perfect virginesque girl like herself is a loose woman who is not to be trusted. And she does this all the time. Hell, it practically her persona. Don't get me wrong, she has some catchy songs, but the lyrics behind them are mundane always and morally questionable often.

Re: Taylor Swift - Why The Hate? Pt II

I liked her first song or two, but then she won several awards and I was completely irritated that a child singing love songs was getting so much attention. I blame getting older. As I begin exiting my twenties I seem to dislike teenagers on principle.

I'm sure they do. But it's still funny.

But let's stir-fry an idea in the think wok: Would you date Taylor, if you knew for a fact she would make fun of you in a song once you broke up? Think about it.

Robert said it best, but she also sounds like a dog that got het nut slammed in the door when she sings, that and it's always slamming her ex-love or relationship! Really, try a new gimick to sell your music!

It would be the least of my worries.
