wild how there haven’t been any full lover concerts yet over half the album has already had a live performance
For this Sunday, the wise words of Taylor will be lyrics from APITW. As someone who is in my junior year of college, I’m kinda in that phase of preparing myself for the real world after years of schooling. It’s very intimidating, I’m not gonna lie. I don’t exactly know what the future holds for me, job-wise. I’ve applied for a few internships/positions during the summer and have yet to hear back. It’s just very frustrating right now. I’m a sports management major, but I know that’s a very difficult field to get a job in, so I am also minoring in communications. That keeps a lot of options open. I’m really into anything media/public relations related. But again, what that exactly means for me in a couple of years from now, I’m not 100 percent sure. All I do know is that I want to make everyone that loves and cares about me, proud. Most importantly, I want to make myself proud. That’s kinda where the lyrics from APITW come in. At the end of the day, I am just a girl, trying to find a place in this world. This song has definitely been a relatable one for the past year or so 😕
I’m fully convinced that SIG and DWOHT are the most underrated songs off reputation
From butterflies to boys, to entering high school and having band and choir practices, to falling in love for the first time, to the struggle of finding myself and my place in this world. To discovering my talents, pleasures, and desires while maturing into adulthood, to graduating college and everything inbetween; yeah Taylor has always been there for me. It’s crazy to most trying to explain how I am so strongly connected to one of the most influential and successful women of our time but the feeling is indescribable. I love you so so SO much Taylor and I will always be there and i can’t thank you enough for you and your music.
Today has been one of those days where my mind just wanders and thinks about a lot of things. And long story short, one of my homework assignments was to watch a documentary on Netflix, then write about the theme and production. So of course, I chose Miss Americana and wrote about it. When I was writing about the theme, I talked about how it highlighted some of the struggles and hardships that Taylor has gone through and how that helped mold her into the person she is today. So when I was mentioning those hardships and where Taylor is now, it really hit me how strong she is. The media has dragged her through hell and back, especially with her dating life. There was a trending social media bullying campaign against her. She’s had her own inner struggles with an eating disorder. Her mom has been battling cancer. She had to deal with her sexual assault case. She’s had 6/7 of her albums practically taken away from her by someone who has bullied and been mean to her (even though that wasn’t mentioned in Miss Americana). And believe me, I’ve always loved her and thought highly of her since I was a little kid. But when I look at her now, I see so much strength. I see perseverance. I see an inspiration. I see someone that no matter what life throws at them, they can get through it. I see someone that I am proud to call my role model. I can only hope to have a fraction of her strength when I’m 30. You are incredible, @taylorswift. And I hope you know that. Please know that.
I wish I was on the set of yntcd, it looked so fun! 🌈🌈🌈
It’s been exactly 4 years since Taylor won AOTY for 1989 at the Grammys and made the speech of the century
We don’t deserve YNTCD or its fantastic music video. We just don’t.
Really glad I came up with this one 😂
A few more thoughts on the latest stunt.
- If Taylor so chooses, this can be retconned as a cheek kiss between friends.
- I think we have to accept that this isn’t employer-employee; she and Joe by this point are legitimately friends, Joe understands the deal, and is doing Taylor the favor of seeing it through to the end.
- I think it’s pretty fair to say that she is still low-key out as queer, but wants to present as a bi woman in a straight relationship. It’s not much, but it’s legit enough, and still a net benefit for bi visibility. Maybe it’s my imagination, but it seems like biphobic backlash has been on the rise lately, especially against those in het relationships. We need this, even if she’s fudging it.
- We don’t know what her current mental health state is, but there’s a good possibility that it’s a bit on the fragile side. It’s been a wild couple of years. She might legitimately be stressing out and this is her way of getting everything back under control, regardless of PR.
- Karlie still isn’t free from the Kushner situation.
I’m going to say this: We Need To Calm Down. If she wants to present as a bi woman in a relationship with a man, which in this show-not-tell era of coming out seems to be what she’s saying, it doesn’t contradict most of the signs she’s dropped, apart from the Koincidences. Since we now know that bisexuality is extremely common, it’s good enough for now. It may be a long time, if ever, before we see Lesbian Taylor, but Nonspecifically Queer Taylor is a fait accompli.
Taylor choking up when she was being written off and haters were being too loud. Then she uses the words “you’re being too loud” in such a fun and peppy song. It just melts my heart knowing that the emotions in the lyrics are so sad and depressing. Yet, @taylorswift transfers those into a fun song to spread positivity💛✨
~ you need to calm down vibes ~
flashback to the time when i put YNTCD on in the car and it went “we all know now, we all got crowns” and my mom went “we all have crowns.” and nodded in approval
My genuine reaction to waking up around 7am is in fact “DAMN” so Taylor made some serious points in YNTCD
No wonder Taylor refers to people taking shots of you like Patron. That shit burns and hurts
