In my personal opinion, as a black woman, this Taylor Swift outrage is beyond over the top.
This is not a Lily Allen/Miley Cyrus situation. Those two women EXCLUSIVELY used black women’s bodies as sexual objects. They use black women had in their videos were to shake their…
The message in the song (Shake It Off) is a problem I think we all deal with and an issue that we deal with on a daily basis. That we don’t live just in a celebrity take down culture, WE live in a take down culture. People will find anything about you and twist it to where it’s weird or wrong or annoying or strange or bad. You have to not only live your life in spite of people who don’t understand you, you have to have more fun than they do.

ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE NEW ALBUM IM SO SO SO EXCITED I'VE BEEN WAITING SINCE LIKE LAST SUMMER
I’m really excited but I’m really nervous. Well, nervous but not as nervous as I was with Red. I hope this album has as much depth and raw emotion that Red did but part of me doesn’t think it will. I am super excited though. This era is going to be absolutely mad and in a good way!
aww here's an ask for you lovely :') , I don't know what to ask so tell me whatever in your mind right now or whatever you think about this new era ? much love xx
well thank you :) been kinda lonely on my blog recently so I appreciate this. My reaction to Shake It Off was a lot better than my reaction to WANEGBT. In a way, I think 22, IKYWT and WANEGBT kinda prepared me for the really pop sound and therefore I kinda was expecting it, I guess? I really like the song though. It’s such a jam and just like a “in your face” type song and it’s so fun. Lyrically, it’s meh but it’s fun.
How do you feel about a completely pop album?
I am kinda sad that she’s officially leaving County but honestly she’s been pop for a long time and I knew this day would come eventually. I do believe though she won’t stay pop forever. I think she’s just dipping her toes into pop and just having fun. Her roots are in country and she will go back to it at some point later in her career.
I never get asks anymore. Not even about this new era or what was said yesterday :(
I just have to point out at 3:03, the third “fake” she sings is just ugh perfection. It’s like one of my favorite parts of the song. It’s just kinda got like soul in it and I dig it.
