Taylor Swift thinks is “fun” to torture an ex who listens to “hipster bands”

These are some photos of Taylor Swift promoting her album in NYC yesterday. She made an appearance on Good Morning America (the red dress) and I don’t know… something else. The photos of Swifty in that white and yellowish ensemble are of her return to her hotel. I actually like that outfit a lot. If that outfit came in black-and-white or blue-and-white, I would wear that.

Anyway, Swifty’s press machine has really kicked into high gear, so there are lots of new interviews to discuss. She says a lot of the same stuff in interview after interview though, so I’m just going to do some assorted highlights. Just FYI – the stuff that I found most interesting is when she’s giving blind items clues to which song is about which ex-boyfriend.

Swifty on “We’re Never Ever Getting Back Together”: “It’s a definitive portrait of how I felt when I finally stopped caring what my ex thought of me.” But Swift still had to exact vengeance on the guy who “made me feel like I wasn’t as good or as relevant as these hipster bands he listened to. So I made a song that I knew would absolutely drive him crazy when he heard it on the radio. Not only would it hopefully be played a lot, so that he’d have to hear it, but it’s the opposite of the kind of music that he was trying to make me feel inferior to.” And why would Swift want to create a single specifically designed to torment someone? “Because that’s fun.”

The song “All Too Well” : “There’s a kind of bad that gets so overpowering you can’t even write about it. When you feel pain that is so far past dysfunctional, that leaves you with so many emotions that you can’t filter them down to simple emotions to write about, that’s when you know you really need to get out.”

The song “Treacherous,” which included the lyric “I’ll do anything you say if you say it with your hands.”: “That song was about a person that I knew, from the minute I saw him, that it would end in fiery, burning wreckage. There’s something about that magnetic draw that doesn’t really let up. You walk toward it anyway.”

She prefers to gossip through her music: “I like the way the stories of my relationships sound to music more than the way they look in print, in gossip columns or in me talking about them in interviews,” she says. “I think it’s a better way of telling the stories.”

She lies to her ex-boyfriends: “They never go into this like, ‘I really want to ask you out — could you not write songs about us?’ They say that when we’re breaking up and they’re like, ‘You better not write a song about this!’ And I’m like, ‘Oh I won’t!’ And then I do.”

[From USA Today & Entertainment Tonight]

So, yeah. “We’re Never Ever” is TOTALLY about Jake. I mean, we already knew that, but now we’re getting a glimpse of how pissed off she was and perhaps still is. Poor Jakey wanted to listen to his hipster music not his annoying girlfriend’s music! WAH. I’m saying that both “Treacherous” and “All Too Well” are about John Mayer, right? She’s speaking in blind-item code, but the words “so far past dysfunctional” and “fiery, burning wreckage” have “David Duke Dong” written all over them.

    Her interview just proves the point that she really does have the emotional maturity of a fruitfly.

  2. Skipper says:

    I don’t get the impression he didn’t want to listen to her music but that he made her feel bad about what she was doing with her career, and that’s mean. Everyone likes to get revenge on their exes at some point.

  3. Riana says:

    Who could even keep track or know, that’s what I’m wondering. Nothing she said is a neon arrow pointing to a specific man.

    At this stage in the game any guy who gets involved with her and thinks there won’t be a song about it is a moron. Too many albums down to play innocent.

  4. some bitch says:

    Shifty is a crazy, vindictive bitch. Not really news, but terrifying when I think about the number of women (my age and older!) who ADORE this girl.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      This girl is a bitch. It’s that simple. Somewhere along the way people stopped telling her her actions were hurtful and cruel and started praises her vindictive behavior. She’s looking more and more like a sociopath every article. No remorse with a touch of shadenfreude.

      • Oi says:

        Same could said about a lot of girls in general. Im really very tired of it. There are a lot of things that other women do that never gets called out as mean. When you do, you always get some line about how he “deseverved” it all. If a man did some of these revenge things to a woman he’d be labeled boraderline abusive. (Not that im saying men cant be douches. Not at ALL. Just speaking to the “swifty” like women) these women need to be called out more.

      • some bitch says:

        Now I may be stereotyping, but I get the feeling this girl has been given some passes in regard to her behaviour (and terrible music) because of her sweet, innocent appearance. The celebrities who talk the most about being bullied during their interviews are more often than not also bullies.

        It’s one thing to write songs about breakups and put the anger into context (Back to Black, 21…) and another to put out album after album of vindictiveness.

      • Tiffany says:

        I agree. Her song “Mean” is supposed to sound like it is written by a victim that has become successful, but IMO it sounds like it was written by a bully. Some people who are victims of bullying don’t understand how they could possibly become a bully themselves, but that is exactly what happens in many cases. I think she feels justified in being a mean girl for some reason.

        Lyrics to Mean:
        And I can see you years from now in a bar
        Talking over a football game
        With that same big loud opinion
        But nobody’s listening
        Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things
        Drunk and grumbling on about how I can’t sing
        But all you are is mean

        All you are is mean
        And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life
        And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

      • Fleur says:

        @somebitch: you make a very interesting point. Society ‘typecasts’ (for lack of a better word) women. It isn’t fair or accurate but it’s the truth. Swift has an innocent face, innocent clothes, and a body that most people don’t perceive as sociologically threatening. If she looked like Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox or Adriana Lima, justly or unjustly I have a feeling the media portraits of her would be very different.

      • Pirouette says:

        I feel the exact opposite. Male musicians whine about women CONSTANTLY and nobody questions the validity of the emotional wreck.

  5. Jill says:

    She is a female american psycho.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      I was going to say that! She totally gives me psychotic vibes. I want an interviewer to add in “and then she threw her head back and cackled like a mad woman before covering her mouth and giggling like an anime schoolgirl”

      Dressing like a glam hipster while hating on hipsters is the most hipsterish thing you can do.

  6. Laney says:

    How long did she date these guys? It didn’t seem like that long to produce ALL this crap emotional songwriting.

  7. Jayna says:

    We’re Never Ever Getting Back Together is clearly John Mayer. he thinks he’s a hipster. Remember when Jessica felt she had to be deeper and darker for him.

  8. Naye in VA says:

    Ughhh, I hate having to get on here and defend her again, but if my life was music and the guy I dated trashed my music to my face, then yea i’d write a flippin song about it just so he could hear it.
    And to all those women calling her psycho, again, most musicians write about their experiences. She came into the game young, so these are her only experiences. Yes its vindictive and more than a bit childish, but gracious, she isn’t calling new gf’s to bash the guy, she didn’t key anybody’s car, she’s not hanging out with his friends and parents to piss him off, she didnt post twit pic of her burning his stuff; she wrote music.

    • marie says:

      in all fairness I think she’s called psycho cause she moved in next door to her boyfriend?

      I dunno, never really been a fan of her music cause it gets stuck in my head days on end.

    • Tapioca says:

      …but if he only listens to “hipster bands” he’s never going to hear it anyway!

      And then this: “It’s a definitive portrait of how I felt when I finally stopped caring what my ex thought of me.”

      If you’ve “stopped caring” honey, then logically you wouldn’t need to write the song and tell everyone it’s about an ex. Apathy doesn’t exactly breed revenge, so methinks Taylor is still cuckoo for Jakey-poo!

      • Minty says:

        Exactly. She’s not over it if she spends all this time and energy writing a song about how she’s over it. Furthermore, she spends more time explaining her songs in interviews. It’s disingenuous and tiresome. Someone with a bit more class and maturity, like Sheryl Crow, won’t reveal or even hint who the guy is in her breakup song. Time to emerge from your delusional fame bubble, Tay-Tay.

        She admits it’s fun to torment someone in a song. How absolutely petty. Fronts like she’s a sweet princess yet behaves so vindictively. Calculated she may be, but she’s not very convincing with her image. At least not to those who can read behavior.

        I hate that mustard yellow outfit, particularly the dress. The 1970s called. They want their tablecloth back. All Taylor needs to complete the look is a pair of avocado green platform shoes.

      • Evie says:

        Taylor Swift Still Loves Jake Gyllenhaal? Her New Album Says Probably—What About Conor Kennedy?

        http://celebs.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474981714350

        For me it was all PR.

    • gg says:

      I agree with Naye. She’s a kid to me. What else is she going to write about? Now, the Kennedy stuff is sketchy and may blow up in her face, but she’s on a 60s Camelot trip right now, so when they break up, her style will probably change again and she may have enough of a cynic built up to be more wary in the future. We all live and learn. She’s just out in front.

    • HotPockets says:

      My issue with Swifty is that she doesn’t even know what a real relationship is. Home girl has never been divorced, doesn’t have a baby daddy and hasn’t been in a relationship lasting longer than a couple months, so her songs are very juvenile and inexperienced.

      I love Alanis Morrisette back in the 90′s or even No Doubt because those songs had real meaning and emotions behind them, not “We are never, ever getting back together..” like totally, now look at all the $$ I am making off of my candy coated and corporate PR fluff.

      • Spofford says:

        You don’t have to have a kid or a divorce to know what a real relationship is. Her songs are juvenile because she’s a young woman writing for girls. Geez, Swift is singing for a specific audience, if you’re not a teen girl, of course you’re not going to like it.

        I hate to break this to you, but Alanis and No Doubt were as mainstream as Swift. It was corporate rock dressed up as something edgy. I thought they were cheezy poseurs doing sanitized, not-too-challenging songs about anger aimed at a mass audience. But if you connected with them, good for you. We’re all touched by different things. Personally, I think Alanis’s album about that derpy blond guy from Full House was the height of silliness. Isn’t it ironic? ;)

    • Tiffany says:

      ” if my life was music and the guy I dated trashed my music to my face,”

      She didn’t say that he trashed her music, to her face or not. She said that he made her “feel” like her music wasn’t as good. Coming from an overly sensitive and dramatic person like Taylor, she could have been offended by anything.

  9. Sara says:

    If its true that Jake made her feel like she wasn’t good enough, good on her for calling him out. She has the maturity level of a middle schooler, but she’s incredibly successful and does all her own work and shouldn’t be made to feel like she’s inferior. ( I like her music and hipster bands)

    • hatuh says:

      I once read an interview with a famous actor (Matt Damon, maybe?) who said when you become famous, you stay at that age emotionally (the age at which you became famous) forever. That would definitely make Taylor’s actions a little more understandable, although not necessarily excusable. I think she’s pretty harmless though. My kids like her music, and it’s better than a lot of stuff they could be listening to, where I have to start changing the station once they figure out the lyrics.

  10. KC says:

    I snorted when I read that she wrote the song, “never ever” to annoy the beejesus out of her ex. She hoped it would get played a lot LOL — nice one swifty.

  11. birdy says:

    I just love that she still thinks that in every situation, she is the victim and if the guy she likes is not hopelessly in love with her and making grand declarations of love then he is the bad guy. That her feelings are the only valid feelings and if they are not returned well then, she will write a bitchy passive aggressive song about the bloke instead of being an adult and having a conversation or just moving on if it doesn’t work out. Her emotional maturity is at zero. She really doesn’t seem to get that she is not everyone’s cup of tea. I guess she is surrounded by so many yes people telling her she is so wonderful and perfect that when someone else doesn’t think so, she gets bitter and vindictive. Because that’s what her songs are. She has been peddling this shtick for years now – it has gotten old.

  12. Mrs.Darcy says:

    I wish she would close her mouth in photos, the slackjaw on her is not cute with her tooth situation. Love her dress though. While I do find her annoying and repetitive/only writes songs about heartbreak etc, part of me cannot help but give her props. Had I been her age and able to make millions out of getting my heart broken it would’ve made me feel a lot better about the situation I guess!She really does seem to have random taste in men and it’s easy to judge but god knows I dated some tools at her age. I dunno I’m feeling pro Swifty today for some reason, weird!

  13. Erinn says:

    I will listen to indie records until I go deaf before I ever pick up Shifty’s album.

    I love me some indie music.

  14. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    “I’ll do anything you say if you say it with your hands.”… Umm…does she mean one of her ex wanted hand jobs from her all the time? @_@

  15. ella says:

    “It’s a definitive portrait of how I felt when I finally stopped caring what my ex thought of me.” <<- Yep Swify, writing a hit song just to torture your ex just screams "not caring".

  16. Micki says:

    I wrote about unicorns and stuff but what the girl needs is a pacifier and STFU

  17. Kimbob says:

    I’m sorry, but the minute anyone can be described as vindictive, to me, all bets are OFF….because no matter how someone can dress up or justify being vindictive…..not good…no good…absolutely NO GOOD can come of such.

    Every time I see Taylor Swift in pics, I just think, “tragic.” Here’s a woman (she really is not a girl), who is absolutely beautiful physically…she’s gorgeous…and she stoops to SUCH LOW LEVELS w/her “talent.”

    Does she think she’s an honest or better person because she cops to such? Lieing to guys she’s breaking up with….saying, ‘it’s fun’ to do what she does?

    I’m NOT taking up for the asshats she’s dated…that’s on HER…she even admitted to knowing better w/one of them. However, just because someone has “wronged her,” does NOT MEAN IT’S OK to do what she does.

    If she had a bad break-up, (you know…like a REAL RELATIONSHIP that lasted more than 3 months), & wrote a song about it….I think that’d be OK. You know…like a “one-time thing,” & writing a song about it. However, she does this w/EVERY DUDE SHE GOES OUT WITH. I cannot respect this!

    I think she even KNOWS she really shouldn’t do what she does…but because she’s so vituperative and thinks she has a “pass” for such, dressing it up as “ART in/of songwriting,” she simply goes ahead & does what her vengeful heart wants to.

    I know one thing….I wouldn’t want to be Taylor Swift…..she’s got it coming to her IN SPADES. One of these days, all her awful deeds are going to come back to her & smack her down…and it’s not gonna be pretty.

  18. Skins says:

    Can somebody please write a song about this nut for a change? John Mayer, are you listening? I will buy your albums if you do

    • Micki says:

      LOL,
      I imagined for a moment lyrics where Mayer compares the “pop icicle” Swift with the “sexual napalm” Jessica and “your body is a Wonderland” JLH.
      I bet Swifty will piss gasoline

      • Tammy says:

        At least one person has – Joe Jonas wrote the song ‘Much Better’ about how Camilla Belle – who he cheated on Taylor with – was much better than ‘the girl with teardrops on her guitar’. That’s why I don’t know why anybody wastes their time feeling sorry for these guys. They all do the same thing. John Mayer is worse because he spills on all his ex-girlfriends in interviews.

  19. Kitten says:

    I wish she’d realize that the only consistent feature of all her shitty, dysfunctional relationships is her.

  20. Kitten says:

    I wish she’d realize that the only consistent feature of all her failed, dysfunctional relationships is her.

  21. jamie says:

    While I think the crazy label definitely applies to this girl when it comes to her current boyfriend, I really don’t understand all the hate she gets for writing songs about her exes. Like others said above, it’s what musicians and writers DO. And if it’s true that she dated some dick who slagged off her (well, terrible) music and this is her ‘revenge’, then good on her. I think we’ve all dated some condescending ass at some point in our dating careers, especially when we’re young. I have a hard time believing anyone on here would be zinging that guy if they could.

  22. Talie says:

    Vulture has the whole breakdown of the songs and who they are about based on clues she left in her liner notes. She really goes in on Jake on one song…it’s pretty much a step by step of their relationship, which lasted all of 3 months, no?

  23. mommak918 says:

    Haters….
    Seriously, I don’t listen to Taylor’s music. Nor do I care. But she writes what she knows.

    Id rather her write abt her ex bfs. And she’s had a lot….
    Then to write about f*cking her. Body like Christina…
    Or doing drugs etc.

    She’s got no kids or husband…
    She’s basically a kid in many ways.

    Whoooo cares what she writes about?
    She’s super successful….

    One day she’ll stop writing about love and breakups…maybe. but her music was ultimately grounded in the county genre. And country music is mainly about love and heartache…

    And ya it can be annoying too!

  24. Fleur says:

    Okay, question: does anyone know how long were Taylor Swift and Jake G. on record as ACTUALLY going out?? Because…I was under the impression that it was a few weeks to a month, two tops. Is this assumption correct? It seems like her fixation is to the point of obsession over something (seemingly) brief.

    Also: in her cadre of boyfriends it seems she chooses the most famous one to skewer. Fair statement? Poor Jake.

    • JillMac says:

      It was a couple of dates. I think Jake is in on it. I think John Mayer is in on it. They probably get royalty checks.

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh my gosh – is that true? Only a month? That would add a whole new layer of crazy to this. Please somebody confirm.

      I think there is a new app coming out called iVoodoo made just for her.

      • gg says:

        I read something about it was more long distance than anything else, stretched over like four months. Not sure if this is true though.

      • Fleur says:

        Okay, I am nerdy enough to look it up. I checked the Jake G/Taylor archives on Laineygossip to see her tracking of their relationship. According to her it started in October and, according to Lainey, ended in the end of December, quote “just before New Years”

        Start: http://www.laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/18192/Swifty-and-Jakey

        End: http://www.laineygossip.com/Articles/Celebrity/20002/Details/18932/Jake-Gyllenhaal-broke-up-with-Taylor-Swift-over-the-phone-Us-Weekly-12jan11

        Lainey also references a meetup at the end of January Now, who knows what the course of their relationship was? According to Swifty he toyed with her a bit, so it might have been longer.
        And youth does breed a sort of obsessive love. Part of me does feel bad for the girl. She was way too young for him and he might have played her, saying how wonderful/awesome/beautiful she was right up until he dumped her.

        That said, I also think there’s a kind of callousness in the ability to turn a famous boyfriend into a profit. Public humiliation is a stiff bill to pay for dumping someone they only dated for a few months. It’s not like it’s an exploration of love and loss, regret and need, the way Adele moved through 21. Rather it seems a sort of bizarre guessing game. John Mayer might have been fair game but it’s not like these men are characters on a stage. It’s not like it’s the end of a marriage, or the death of a loved one. I realize she’s very young and so her spectrum of experiences would be limited but she’s also lived a life none of us will ever experience, traveling the globe, playing for millions, the pressure of being a pop idol and a teen beauty role model. The rush of fame, the alienation that comes with it, the guilt and the excitement, those are more interesting topics than the boyfirend guessing game. If I were part of her management team I’d encourage her to broaden her lyrical topics.

      • j.eyre says:

        Bless you and your due diligence, Fleur.
        I feel like there should be some standards put into place like you can’t write a song about somebody ripping your heart out unless you went out for a minimum of 6 months. 3-6 months, they can get a poem, but no more than 3 stanzas and anything less than 3 months would be, what – a limerick?

  25. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    I will never be able to understand all the hate for her. This style – writing about the emotions of her breakups and what her ex’s put her through – it’s working for her. As long as she has sold out tours and in the top 5 earning female entertainers, she will continue this pattern. Say what you want, but she does so well with her music bc millions of people like it/relate to it. Obv., if you dont like it, dont listen…but ppl need to realize she’s not an idiot. Idiots are not continuously leading millions of ppl blindly year in and year out. We might not agree with her dating choices, but to say she is stupid or has the maturity of a 13 y.o. is not accurate or witty in the least. Props to her for her success…and for making most of her exes feel like dbags (when justified).

    • gg says:

      On younger stars like this, there always appears a huge dose of jealousy on blog comments.

    • noi says:

      you don’t go flower picking in a field of weeds correct so why date one douche after another? what does that say about her if every guy she dates is bad and she’s the victim?
      &&
      you don’t have to be smart to get millions of ppl buying your sh*t just a good team of ppl.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        You do have to be smart to write all of those songs on your own(like her previous albums). Also, she has written nice songs about some of her bfs…there is an apology song she wrote to Taylor Lautner, ‘Back to December.’ ..Dont know why I feel the incessant need to defend her on here, pretty pointless I guess. Either you like her or you dont..whatevs

  26. valleymiss says:

    She’s a stage 5 clinger with not one ounce of maturity. Swifty’s no fool – she will never date a guy behind the scenes, a no-name guy. Her whole schtick is dating famous men, or men from famous families, so when she writes a song about them later, we care about it. She’s so calculated it’s sickening. Her songs are the equivalent of a Kathy Griffin stand-up routine – she just makes fun of celebs and gets back at them. I really cannot STAND this whiney wench.

  27. dorothy says:

    Maybe her songs will improve when she graduates middle school.

  28. Alexis says:

    I like Jenny Lewis’s songs about Jake Gyllenhaal a whole lot better. And I’m sure Jake does too.

  29. hoya_chick says:

    She is so immature. Grow up.

  30. Sarah says:

    All too well is about Jake, it talks about leaving her scarf at his sisters house. We always saw pics of Swifty with Maggie and her daughter, plus JM has no sisters

  31. I.want.shoes says:

    She’s not tormenting just her ex with her crappy songs, but the rest of us too.

    Hate the red dress, like the yellow one but hate it combined with the matching sweater.

  32. Kimlee says:

    In every relationship she paints her self as the victim. Girl needs to grow up and take some responsibility for her own actions and of why her relationship didn’t work out. If she dosent she’ll end up like JLO and Halle Berry, in her 40′s still jumping from one man to another, with many field marriages.

    Will she STFU about her ex’s, if you moved on then why are you still talking about them.

  33. Sarah says:

    That actually makes me like her, that’s some masterful trolling right there.

  34. Esmom says:

    Her hair. I just can’t with it. She needs to find a more flattering color and style.

  35. Jada says:

    All Too Well is DEFINITELY about Jake Gyllenhaal. She even references spending Thanksgiving with Maggie, and the secret note in the liners is MAPLE LATTES.

    I can’t believe how crazy this girl is. This is a really interesting article from Vulture figuring out who each one is about.

    http://www.vulture.com/2012/10/who-is-each-song-on-taylor-swifts-album-about.html

  36. lori says:

    It pains me to have to agree with John Mayer, but this really is “cheap” song writing on her part. And that first song is totally about Jake G. He’s used to date and is still good friends with Jenny Lewis. She’s a musican and very hipster. And can totally see Taylor taking it as an insult if he even wanted to listen to someone else’s records.

  37. HotPockets says:

    Swifty has the brains and intellectual thoughts of a mannequin, no wonder the dudes run from her.

    Again, this girl is not a role model and someone I would ever want my daughters looking up to. It’s not a healthy image for one to idolize a girl who writes exploiting songs about any guy she’s ever bedded. John Mayer? They didn’t date, they probably hooked up a couple times and now the girl has half a cd dedicated to his dong. What kind of role model is this?

  38. Dinah says:

    In the red dress photo,she totally resembles Lily Tomlin as Ernestine ( google it if you are too young to remember).

    One ringy-dingy…

  39. dcypher1 says:

    I dont blame jake id rather listen to anything else besides t. Swift she sucks.

  40. KellyinSeattle says:

    Will someone pleeeaaaazz take away her lipstick? Once in awhile she should wear gloss instead of that garish red or orange all the time.

  41. KelBear says:

    Obviously something isn’t right with her if she is able to have mutiple albums full of breakup songs.

  42. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Well we didn’t date and ALL of her songs are torturous to me. Just saying.

  43. jamminatorr says:

    A much better (and Breaking Bad based) version of the song: http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2012/10/22/breaking_swift_watch_a_brilliant_breaking_bad_taylor_swift_mashup_video.html

    And the whole “weeEEEEE” part of the song, really, really bugs me. Ugh

  44. Elena says:

    I have really liked Taylor for some time now and that is exactly why I feel a lot of annoyance with her.
    I wouldn’t blame anyone who wants to be able to breathe within a relationship and be entitled to his/her own taste in stuff.
    And treating a person this way, this suffocating way, both in the relationship and after it’s over, this whole “let- down- princess” attitude… it’s just pathetic!
    Taylor you are pretty and talented, don’t embarrass yourself!
    I think she will soon cross the line past which everyone will think she deserves what she gets.

  45. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Agree valleymiss and dorothy She’s NO role model; everything is contrived and calculated to SELL her craptastic fairy dust noise to tone deaf tweeners and soccer moms that can see past the facade. WHat is torture is the amount of corporate backing being used to shove her done our throats; she’ll be on the talk shows this week where her infantilism will be on full display.

  46. Chris says:

    I can totally see her boiling a pet rabbit someday.

  47. Madriani's Girl says:

    Honest to God, I swear my granny had that exact same dress material on her “davenport” back in the 70s.

  48. Elizabeth says:

    I don’t know how this girl gets dates anymore. If she likes you now, it just means she will hate you later (in equal amounts to how she “liked” you before). And then she’ll do a top 40 song about it and it will be the topic of blogs, etc.. Poor Connor – he’s too young, inexperienced to see this coming. Things are going to be very difficult for him in about 12 months (relationship-break up-write & record song-release new CD timeline).

  49. Jess says:

    No wonder she’s dating a child now. No sane adult would deal with this chick. She’s perpetually 15, and pressed. Maybe it’s you, Taylor. Has she ever stopped to think that?

  50. IceBlue says:

    Ha! Just waiting to see how she tries to pull this same stuff on the Kennedys. Cuz we all know her and Connor will last don’t we? I don’t think this kind of stunt will please them at all.

    One day, she will find a boyfriend that will not sit idly around while she writes this crap because she thinks it’s “fun”. One day she will bite off more than she can chew. Let’s just hope it’s sooner than later.

    Kate Gosselin, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift always remind me of one another, other than the bottle blonde thing.

  52. Phil E Stein says:

    Ah she’s chasing the anti-hipster dollar. Smart move. There’s a lot of money in that.

  53. Michelle says:

    Miss. Swifty is doing what many others girls her age do, VENT. We start at an early age and it just keeps on going. I am 38 and I know what my girlfriends and I b*$ch about when we are together. Men/women, ex-husbands/ex-wives, bad girlfriends/boyfriends, horrible lovers, and whatever else comes to our minds.
    I wish I could write one song, and have someone that peeved me off, have to listen to it when they changed the station and wonder, “Is that about me?”.
    I have a younger sister, 25, and one would think they were all in highschool still. Sit around and listen – they all complain and talk like that about all of their relationships. Miss. Swifty is the smart one, she is bringing home the fat pay check.
    I say more power to her. She is doing nothing that many, many other artists do. She just happens to be successful at it.

  54. Oi says:

    Does anyone else think matchbox 20′s new single “She’s so mean” could be the theme song for whatever poor fool does fall in love with her for real? Not all of it for sure, but lines like “For an angel, she’s a hot hot mess” “she’s an uptown, get-around anything goes girl”, and “she’ll turn a knife into your back then she’s calling you baby, crazy”.

    I made my own music video for it with Rob Thomas and company hijacking TS “We are never getting back together” video (also not using her meaning for the video, just the setting), trying to convince her love interest in the vid to leave her. I imagined RT, playing the role of the guys voice-of-reason-buddy pleading with the guy “why don’t you let her go?” and pointing to a band member in one of the animal costumes. I may be the unwell one here, but it makes me laugh.

  55. aang says:

    why the bangs :( ? ? the only thing i ever could stand about her was her curly hair.

  56. oivey says:

    If I don’t read her interviews, I like her and her music (don’t judge me, everyone has their vices…mine is pop music. lol) and then she says a–hole things and it just doesn’t suit the image that’s been carefully crafted for her.

  57. EscapedConvent says:

    The only attention I have ever paid to Swiffer has been recent, when I started hearing about her playing Joni Mitchell (still shell-shocked :-O). Today I happened to see a photo of the cover of “Red.” Oh God. It’s “Blue”, only in red. If this movie ever does happen, I’m going to take a nerve pill & try to sleep through it.

  58. Kat says:

    Silly narcissistic moron. He can easily change the channel when her brain cell-killing song comes on the radio. Or does she not know how a radio dial works?

  59. blondie10101 says:

    I have always thought that she got so hung up on John Mayer because she gave him her virginity and he probably just used her for sex like Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, and probably Katy Perry in about 4 months max. I can understand why she might be pissed at him, but she needs to move on…

  60. Jay Elle says:

    Does she not see that she is, in fact, a hipster herself?

  61. Paul says:

    Poor Taylor. She needs to do some growing up. I can never figure out what the appeal of her music is. Let her get a few more years under her belt and hopefully she will be able to write some songs with substance.
