Please, Just Stop It With Those Tour Music Videos

Keep 'em.

Before we start, everything I'm about to say comes from a loving place. No tea, no shade, just a plea to my faves.

AND NOW TAYLOR AGAIN WITH THE "NEW ROMANTICS" VIDEO.

Please, MY FAVES, I am begging you with a pure gay man's heart — STOP IT WITH ALL THE DAMN TOUR VIDEOS.

Sure, they're cute and filled with "NEVER BEFORE SEEN BACKSTAGE FOOTAGE," but absolutely no one asked for them. NO ONE. Like, release the footage of you autographing body parts separately, YA KNOW?

We get that you're famous.

We get that you have a huge entourage.

And we get that you went on tour... LIKE WE WERE THERE AND BOUGHT TICKETS TO SEE IT.

WE DON'T NEED TO SEE IT ALL IN A MUSIC VIDEO!

TBH, give us anything else BUT a tour video. Like, we'd take you just crying in a bathtub as a visual over a tour video.

So, my faves, I'm going to use a crying Selena Gomez one more time as a plea to stop wasting YOUR BEST SINGLES on tour videos. The songs and fans deserve more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sincerely, Everyone.

(With the exception of the few people who will voice their pro-tour video arguments in the comment section.)
