Taylor Swift Swiftly Slammed

Taylor Swift, Super GeniusAs many people (Frank) will tell you, within the realms of poetry, film, and music, I am a philistine. Even so, I think I can tell the difference between true talent and aggressive marketing. Speaking of Taylor Swift, I find her to be a common, typically insipid, overindulged, and overly praised young woman who is being used as a celebrity drone attack on innocent children.

My husband defends Swift, saying, “At least she writes her own songs.” My response to that is: BFD. I wrote poetry when I was a kid – didn’t make me a poet. I was just another narcissistic, teenaged ball of angst, attempting to put into words all the deep and painful longing of my young, shallow soul. My writings were as introspective and naively romantic as hers, which is why I burned all of them.

In “Love Story” she writes:

’cause you were Romeo – I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said, “Stay away from Juliet”
But you were everything to me,
I was begging you, “Please don’t go”

So we know what she was reading in English class at the time and that she is under the impression that The Scarlet Letter was a romance. As I said, BFD. She will never be in the same league as Janis Ian, Tori Amos, Carol King, or Alanis Morissette.

Then there are her singing and guitar playing talents. She is admittedly more talented than I in these categories. However, had I learned I would have been a great proficient. Here is a poor quality video that highlights her singing and guitar playing talents.

The reason I’m even mentioning Taylor is because I read this appalling CNN headline: Taylor Swift slams Fey, Poehler.

WTF?! That little slip of a freakishly tall girl is going after to of the most actually talented women in our country? That’s quite a sac she’s hiding under her dress.

Apparently, during the Golden Globe Awards, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at her:

Tina: You know what Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.

Amy: Or go for it.

Tina: No, she needs some Me time to learn about herself.

Well! If Taylor wears panties they were in a twist. She chose to respond via a Vanity Fair magazine interview that “for a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her… is frankly a little sexist.”

Wow Taylor. Project much? Maybe, before speaking or writing, you would be better served by reading, not reading into.

In the video “news” report, I was pleased to see Erin Burnett kindly bitch slap the kid:
