taylor singing ‘i’m shining like fireworks over your sad empty down’ on the speak now tour with fireworks exploding behind her is FOREVER iconic. it is also iconic how she goes from ‘i should’ve known’ to ‘you should’ve known’ because he should have known better. it is also iconic how 19 year old taylor wrote it and dragged 30-something year old john mayer, including mentioning his name in the very title of the song. in conclusion, dear john is just so iconic
speak now has two grammys and some of taylor’s best ever songwriting yet somehow she remains overlooked by most people when they discuss her career….an actual disservice to this album and Taylor’s prodigious talent. Anyway happy birthday to the magical, self written masterpiece that gave us a fairytale tour, iconic music videos and Dear John.
Adele is definitely planning to release a single on 12th since she has her concert on 14th. It would be identical to her rollout for 25 (a promo single one week before release). Idk I feel like this would sort of overshadow red. Of course swifties would be into it but I'm not sure if GP would be as hyped up.
it definitely won’t overshadow red - the GP hype for red is very very high right now and the notion that only stans, and not even all stans, care about re-recordings could not be further from the truth. it actually might even backfire on adele because her song might get buried in the narrative. but she could take the top streaming spot which is why taylor might be trying to reserve all demand for that day.
“Everyone who has heard me yearn for motherhood for so long would have expected me to write an album that was full of gratitude. Instead, I was like, ‘No, this shit is so scary and so horrifying. My body’s changing and I have no control over anything.’ Pregnancy for some women is a dream—and for some people it’s a fucking nightmare. That’s the thing that nobody else talks about.”
IF I CAN’T HAVE LOVE, I WANT POWER

why was 'of course they did' my first reaction to some swifties actually visiting taylor's nyc place where she is allegedly filming smthn and taking photos of her windows + reporting abt camera flashes and models etcetera
