In Defense Of Taylor Swift

Why you gotta be so mean?

1. Say what you will about Taylor Swift, but she’s actually the best.

3. But girlfriend has sold more than 22 million albums, so obviously she has some fans too.

4. The thing is, her haters are really loud.

5. They get annoyed with her for dating so many guys and writing songs about them.

6. While forgetting that dating guys is a perfectly normal thing for a young heterosexual girl her age to do.

7. And that people write songs about relationships and breakups all the time.

8. Sorry, but Taylor’s famous and she meets famous people and they date sometimes. Deal with it.

9. (And the joke about her writing a song called “Maybe I’m the Problem” isn’t original. Please stop.)

14. Her haters also get upset at her for acting surprised whenever she wins an award.

15. Which is all the time because she’s constantly winning awards.

16. But being surprised and humble is less annoying than being cocky.

17. And she’s going to keep winning awards because she’s so good at what she does, so people are going to have to deal with it.

18. Of course, her haters disagree with all the awards. They like to say her music is “anti-feminist” or that it “slut shames.”

19. But that’s ridiculous.

21. She’s literally just singing about her life and her feelings.

22. And anyone who has ever had a crush or been in love or had their heart broken — literally everyone ever — can relate to at least one of her songs.

23. Her music just speaks to you.

25. And all of her albums have spent a cumulative 23 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart (so far).

26. And she’s had 14 different top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (so far).
