    Every tour Taylor gets criticize for the lackluster presentation. She loses fans every tour or Era. Eventually they figure out how moneygrubbing she is. She lost a ton of people over the ticket fiasco. She scalped her own tickets and did it sneaky instead of using ticketmasters tool. The ticket prices went up as people clicked. She could’ve priced some higher at the beginning of buying.

    I have strong feelings about my Dr Grip rollerball pen. I love it. It’s comfortable to hold, its affordable for most and us refillable and the rollerball is not messy like gel ink.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I still have, and prefer, my old Papermate ‘clicky’ pen. Blue ink. It’s thin in comparison to modern pens, which always seemed to me like those big fat pencils they have little kids use when they’re just learning to write. And I never understood the love for gel pens. So messy! Blue ink everywhere!

      No one, I repeat no one, is allowed to use my Mont Blanc Masterpiece Classique fountain pen. I love this baby, such smooth writing.

      • Becks1 says:

        When I’m feeling petty about something my husband did I take his Mont Blanc pen. Its funny to hear him start yelling for it, LOL.

      • Bellah says:


        Madam, that’s grounds for divorce! I beg you to find another means for your petty capers. 😀

    I am wheezing at that Swifty article. Wheezing.

    What did they expect. She didn’t exactly make it a secret.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Queen B never disappoints!!! B is ALL Vigo and I am loving her commitment to her sign!!! As a Leo myself, I am all for roaring out the strengths and the powers of our signs!! Get them ALL to the disco!!!

      Swift deserves to be called out on her money grubby tactics as she certainly doesn’t care about her fans, however loyal they may be. I don’t listen to Taylor and I don’t understand her fan base as they seem more invested in her life than SHE is but I am glad that she is getting called out. It’s about time!!

    • DK says:

      I’m actually confused by the ire over the Taylor Swift thing? The headline made it seem like it would be something much more egregious than simply releasing multiple “special editions” of the same album.

      Like, no one HAS to buy each edition, right?
      If fans are mad she’s dropping four versions of the same album, just…don’t buy them?

      And if they’re only available for 48 hours each special-ed-round, maybe it’s to allow each round to feel special/exclusive, but also ensure fans who maybe miss some of the 48-hour windows have other opportunities?

      (Ha, I’m just kidding! I’m sure it’s a money-grab. But seriously, if you want to own every single official TSwizzle item that comes out, but are also mad there’s too many of them, there is a very obvious solution!)

      • Becks1 says:

        Right? It’s clearly a money grab and I get the frustration bc it doesn’t seem she’s telling them there’s going to be 4 special editions, each one is announced as a surprise. She should just announce all at once.

        But……if fans are frustrated that this is a money grab…..then stop letting her grab your money and she’ll stop doing this. This makes her a ton of money, thats why she does it.

      • ⁷Tree says:

        The problem is she doesn’t say how many special editions will come, what colors, and you have 48 hours to decide if you want to buy one. So people are buying whatever they see and then shortly after there is a new color with a new picture and you have 48hrs to decide if you want it. And no combine shipping. It’s not fair. She doesn’t want poor fans.

    I wish I could go to the US leg of Renaissance. It looks so fun and lit 🔥

    • Nlopez says:

      Ditto BB! It looks like everybody is having a good time💃

      • Sarem says:

        That was what my comment was about that apparently didn’t meet the standards. I went, with kids. And didn’t love the experience.

    • TIFFANY says:

      I went last night. It was a out of body experience. Beyonce has no equal or peer. She is her own entity and it will stay that way as long as she is with us.

    Cher’s voice distortion on Believe “invented” autotune? Wasn’t Peter Frampton doing that back in the ’70s?

    • GamerGrrl says:

      Sort of… Peter used what was called a “wah wah box” – very popular among 70s rockers. It was something he could use to distort his voice on demand, but wasn’t fine tuning it. Just made it sound a bit robotic.

  6. tealily says:

    Yeah, that’s weird. It’s the biggest tour of the summer, I think it was good to see an opposing view other than just “it’s amazing, spend all your money.”

  7. Bettyrose says:

    Drew’s reaction in that video was alarming. She was clearly worried about this person.

  8. AC says:

    Beyoncé’s XO song is trending again because of TSITP. Love that song . And it was a perfect song for that specific scene in the season 2 finale 😊

    • SAS says:

      That’s my favourite Beyonce song! It’s so sexy and I love her voice cracking a little bit, I think it’s criminally underrated. Still not enough to make me watch that show though lol.

    As someone who has friends going to Las Vegas this weekend to see Queen Bey, and as someone who herself has a whole fabulous GOLD disco jumpsuit, dropping the news a couple days before about silver is crazy-making. There’s going to be a silver bump to the economy.

    That interview on Jezebel with Prachi Gupta, a former writer for their site, was so compelling and it led me to an essay she wrote for Jezebel in 2019. The interview was about her new memoir, “They Called Us Exceptional,” which I will definitely get after reading her essay, ‘Stories About My Brother.’ She writes so beautifully about the pain of her family’’s ‘double life’ and how they prioritized putting out a sort of idealized version of themselves to everyone else that knew them while the reality was much grimmer. She alludes to the Model Minority Myth which describes how Asian immigrants or their children believe that if they succeed in school, succeed in college and go on to successful careers they won’t experience racism or xenophobia. Because she and her younger brother were estranged for much of the year before he died she goes on a quest to understand what her brother was going through and approaches it as an investigative journalist would. If you haven’t read it you should. While I am a white American with a Heinz 57 mix of European ethnicities I was really touched by her writing. I too had my close in age younger brother die young, although mine was a senior in high school when he died. I married an immigrant from the Middle East – he came to attend college – and over the years I started noticing how diehard Americans expect all immigrants to express love and gratitude towards their new country at all times. Criticism, no matter how constructive it is, is not allowed. And her family doesn’t have a monopoly on disfunction so I look forward to reading Gupta’s memoir.
