I called it.
Back in 2009 when Kanye crashed Taylor Swift’s speech at the VMAs, I said this was the best thing that could have happened to her and everyone would be “poor Taylor!” and go out and buy her albums.
I still think Kanye is a dick, by the way.
All right. Life goes on, we hear a million and three songs about this boy that Taylor likes, that boy that Taylor likes, and then the high school student that also happens to be a Kennedy that Taylor likes. Honestly, he is kind of cute so I can’t totes blame her, but I’m almost twice his age so I need to take a shower because I feel kind of dirty.
To be honest with you I don’t have any REAL aversion to Tay Tay. I think she’s adorable and not controversial and a little blah. But she’s in the press every single day about the most boring things possible, and it’s hard to ignore.
Case in point. This morning I woke up and logged into my beloved people.com, where Tay explains her ultimate first world problem in an interview to Harper’s Bazaar (via People):
I’m in a predicament where I can’t wear a dress twice or else it’s pointed out in magazines . . . So unfortunately I have to shop for dresses all the time.
That IS tough. I know people who got laid off this week, I know people who lost their homes in Hurricane Sandy, I even know people who lost parents to cancer. But Tay Tay has to shop for dresses!!! I know sometimes when I visit my parents, my mom will take me out shopping because she knows I never buy clothes. “Liz,” she pleads, “Pick out a dress or two! They’re on me!” “Mooooo-oooooom!” I whine. “That’s too haaaa-aaaaard!”
That Taylor Swift, always keeping it real!
