Every Single Time Taylor Swift Has Ever Cursed

No it's fucking Becky.

Posted on

1. First was the alleged MySpace Era of Profanity™. She cursed to reference her reported high school crush, Grant "Motherfucking" Wood.

"I'm Grant Motherfucking Wood."

2. Twelve short days after, the self-proclaimed knitter iconically attacked sewing machines.

3. Clinging close to her songwriting craft, she used a limerick to triple-curse, featuring the F- and S- word (twice).

4. There's also that time she used {braces} to jokingly call her friend a B.

5. On top of her profane poems, she swore in this strange riddle, concluding that a tiger and lion combined equals a "whore."

6. Following the MySpace Era of Profanity, she released her 2007 original version of "Teardrops On My Guitar," where she says "damn."

Interestingly enough, the music video leaves out the swear.

7. On the same album, she uses the D-word again. Her song "Cold As You" reads, "You never did give a damn thing, honey, but I cried, cried for you."

NME

8. In 2008, she performed with Kellie Pickler on her Fearless Tour, where she said "ass" during the song "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue."

9. In 2009, Swift hosted SNL. Her opening monologue was, of course, a song, where she called out the douchebags who cheated on her.

10. In 2011, she sang "I'm Yours" with Jason Mraz and gave zero fucks about saying damn again.

11. That summer, she said "hell" when performing Usher's song "Yeah!" with him.

12. On Nashville's 107.5 The River, Swift rapped some of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass," which includes the H-word.

13. Hell must be her favorite, because her 2012 song "The Lucky One" features it.

14. And on her Red Tour, she performed Neon Trees' "Everybody Talks," where she sang "shit."

15. According to Rolling Stone, she said "Fuck!" after playing the wrong note on her piano.

16. Then came arguably her most iconic cursing episode — at the 2013 VMAs when she told Selena Gomez to "shut the fuck up."

MTV

It's important to note this was while One Direction was on stage. Investigators claim the curse was aimed at the boy band, while others say Swift was reassuring Gomez, who said she wasn't going to win the award.

17. And her 2014 song "Wildest Dreams" says "hell" twice.

18. But some of her cursing has been used to call out important issues, like sexism:

So, we thank you, Taylor, and we cannot wait to hear more.
