She doesn’t have to be your taste, and I can totally understand why someone wouldn’t be into her, but choosing to write off a young woman completely because she “has too many feelings” is just typical, old school misogyny. Don’t like her music? Cool. Don’t like her style? Cool. Don’t like the way she words things in interviews? Totally reasonable. But if you’re willing to paint this woman as the CRAZY BITCH EX-GIRLFRIEND because she uses her platform to call out men’s bullshit behavior, you’re contributing to a culture that assumes all women’s feelings are irrational and worthless. It’s mean, it’s boring, and we can do better. If you want to make fun of Taylor Swift, make fun of Taylor Swift. Don’t resort to mocking femininity in general and trying to pass it off as pop culture news. By turning Taylor into a Crazy Bitch, you might be sending the message to other women writers that it’s not worth it for them to express their feelings at all.
@brian_mansfield: “So it took 9 years, but this finally happened. At the piano where “I Knew You Were Trouble” began”
If I’m writing a song in the middle of the night, chances are…it’s either because there’s something I haven’t said to someone that I really need to, or the #1 reason that…I’m trying to forget someone. and if you’ve ever tried to forget someone…it’s impossible to TRY to forget someone, ‘cause it just happens over time, I think. There’s nothing you can really do to make it better. When I tried to write this song in order to forget someone, all I ended up doing was writing a song about how everything about him, I remembered it all too well.
