Music Monday: Dammit, I Like A Taylor Swift Song!



Dear Taylor Swift,

No. You are NOT ALLOWED to do this. I mean, really. Is it fair that you have every White girl/woman under the age of 35 gripped in the throes of your music and still you want more? NO. This is not OK, Swifty.

But, I'll give you this one song. I will publicly admit that you made a song so damn catchy and, from what I can tell, different from your other stuff, that I was captivated by it and in no way even considered that it COULD be you. This, of course, means I WAS FOOLED BY TAYLOR SWIFT. Damn you, Taylor!

While I am slightly horrified by the fact that I like this song, I'm not going to call it a guilty pleasure, because I don't believe in feeling bad about anything I like that doesn't hurt anyone else. And I suppose I can cop to the fact that liking one of your songs doesn't make me, like, a MONSTER or anything.

Well, at least I'm setting myself apart from 100% of self-employed, mid-western, 38-year-old Black ladies with natural hair who pay no attention to you at all. Bright sides, right?

Sincerely,

I'm Just Embarrassed Enough To Not Sign My Name

Thank God that's over...

Oh dear. Well I'm from the Caribbean and you would never really hear these things on the radio. But now that I've been here for a few years I have definitely found my inner white girl, and I'm loving every minute of it. lol. Trouble, trouble, trouble :D

Haha I have to admit that I like this song too, even after i've heard it a million times on the radio. But I'm pretty fed up with Taylor Swift herself- she literally breaks up and gets together with someone new every other month. Not to say you can judge anyone on their dating habits but someone like this in the public eye who makes it the worlds business by writing popular songs about love interests- she needs to just chill and be single for a while. Also, love the Justin Timberlake song Mirrors and the video is awesome!

Taylor Swift started out as a young country girl but as you can see her music is starting to transend. I wonder how her next songs will sound. :-)

I don't know this song, but I consider myself warned and I'm not going to listen to is because I would never forgive myself for liking a Taylor Swift song.
