First of all, I know this is my fourth Taylor Swift blog in a row and I promise you that later I will write about Kim Kardashian’s atrocious spray-tan in Interview magazine, but right now I have some final grievances to air and it has to be done.
For years, many people–including myself–have been suggesting that Taylor Swift is secretly a manipulative mean girl who loves to play the victim and attack anyone who wrongs her by trying to ruin their reputation via song. With her new song, video, and impending album, Taylor has proven that–SHOCKER–we were all right about her skinny white ass (not body shaming, I also have a skinny white ass, so shut up!).
I’ve said before that Taylor is the worst kind of white woman, pretending to be a feminist while frequently tearing other women down via song, yet getting her squad to jump to her rescue on Twitter just because Katy Perry releases a “diss” (in reality, more of a “I don’t give a fuck about you”) song. She says she didn’t want to be a part of the narrative that Kanye West has put her in since 2009, yet she single-handedly continued her victim to Kanye West’s scary, mean, black man at the 2010 VMAs when SHE performed the song SHE wrote about Kanye and started the performance with a video clip of Kanye snatching the microphone from poor, innocent little Taylor on the MTV stage.
Taylor Swift has been very much in control of all of the narratives she’s been involved in over the years thanks to her music and videos. John Mayer took advantage of her when she was young and naive. Joe Jonas broke up with her over the phone and left her for Camilla Belle who was “better know for what she does on the mattress” (Taylor’s own lyrics). Harry Styles couldn’t take the heat so she set him free, but she knew he was trouble. Jake Gyllenhall thought indie music was so much cooler than hers. Katy Perry started the bad blood. We get it, Taylor. It’s never you in the wrong. Well, that is until last year when Kim Kardashian dropped that video of yours and Kanye’s conversation that proved Kanye WASN’T lying about running the lyrics by you and you saying you were cool with it.
Flash forward just over a year and Taylor is back with her new single that is not surprisingly at all co-written by the boyfriend of the duchess of privileged white feminists (Taylor being the queen), Lena Dunham. Lest we forget that it wasn’t that long ago that Lena got a lot of heat (including a bunch from me), about her saying that the reason Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t want to talk to her at the MET Gala is because he didn’t view her as fuckable. A privileged white woman playing victim to a mean black man? As I have said before, have these bitches never read “To Kill a Mockingbird”???
However, the big difference between Lena and Taylor is that when Lena’s ignorance and stupidity was pointed out to her she issued what seemed like a pretty sincere apology. She felt like a jackass, as she should, but maybe it was a good learning moment for her and she can move forward. When Taylor’s stupid and asshole tendencies are revealed she releases a song saying “No, Kanye is the asshole and just to prove it I’ll release the whole damn album on the anniversary of his mother’s death. Look what you made me do, Kanye!”
While Taylor’s people say that the album release date is purely coincidental, I ask you, beloved readers, to merely look to her latest music video. Everything this bitch does is contrived and calculated af. She dropped her first single and video in late August and isn’t dropping the album for almost three more months? I’m sure it had nothing to do with making the song release coincide with her sexual assault trial, her desire to have the video premiere at the VMAs that Katy Perry was hosting, and having the album release on potentially the hardest day of the year for Kanye West.
We all know that I love a petty bitch, but when your brand of pettiness involves exploiting victims of sexual assault and the death of someone’s mother, I just can’t with you. I can get behind Blac Chyna having a spite baby with Rob Kardashian more than I can get behind this shit.
The funny this is, with this new song and video, Taylor is trying to reinvent herself as a “new” Taylor Swift. However, if she really wanted to be a new Taylor and release an innovative album (given that her “new” shit is once again just her putting blame on everyone around her while she plays the scorned victim), she would release some songs like “Yeah, I’ve fucked up and done some dumb shit. I’m young, I’m an idiot sometimes, maybe I can learn from this, maybe I can be a better person”, instead of “screw you guys, karma will get you for being mean to me!” Like, fuck off, bitch. You sound like Eric Cartman.
The sad thing is, the media, myself included, is giving this shit so much attention, which is why, after today, I will NOT be writing about Taylor Swift for one full month regardless of what she pulls, because fuck that shit.
SZA released one of the hottest albums of all time this summer with “Ctrl” and Lana Del Rey dropped what is maybe the best album of her career with “Lust for Life”, so I’d rather be writing about them and their amazing music rather than fucking with Taylor Swift’s shit. Fuck, I’d rather be listening to Jann Arden’s greatest hits album “Greatest Hurts”, rather than talking about this anymore (I actually fucking love that album. “Insensitive” is my JAM!…so that’s what I’ll leave you with.)
