Taylor Swift Calls Out Princeton Review For Misquoting Her Lyrics

Never attack Taylor's grammar.

Posted on

An SAT prep book by Princeton Review recently tried to use one of Taylor Swift's lyrics as an example of bad grammar — except the book got the lyric wrong.

The section labeled "Grammar in Real Life" uses several lyrics from different pop songs to highlight bad grammar and included a lyric from Swift's "Fifteen" as an example.

Problem is, Princeton Review misquoted the lyrics. Swift fan Nava caught the mistake and posted it on her Tumblr.

The lyric in the prep book read: "Somebody tells you they love you, you got to believe 'em." However, the actual lyric is: "Somebody tells you they love you, you're gonna believe them."

Swift added:"Not the right lyrics at all pssssh You had one job, test people. One job."

Swift added:

"Not the right lyrics at all pssssh

You had one job, test people.

One job."

It definitely pays to do a double check.
