I share for a second time, my post on the lovely ms. swift.
Taylor Swift, champion of artists everywhere, girlfriend to the world, the mega star with the ordinary voice and the best publicist ever.
I just read the Vanity Fair piece on Taylor. As a writer who writes a whole lot for no money, I cannot thank her enough for her voice and mighty stance for the underpaid and unpaid artist. But am I the only one who finds all this fuss over Tay Tay and her Susie Creamcheese persona a bit nauseating? And boring? This was a fairly long article and I can’t help but think that author Josh Duboff must have been pulling his hair out trying to come up with something interesting (i.e. snarky, witty, revealing) to say about this young woman. She loves her parents, she now loves Kanye West, she loves her fans, she loves her girlfriends, and news flash, Taylor and the blondtourage do not discuss shoes during their sleepovers or over breakfast a la Taylor–there are more “pressing matters.” Like…??? And she has a moral code–of course she does. I cringe at the words. Sorry, Taylor, it’s just that I, too, have more pressing matters.
