Taylor Swift Channels Lorde in New Single

Clip this card - it might be the only one where I say these words: I love a Taylor Swift song. Blank Space is too catchy to deny and the beat is hypnotizing. It's filled with all of my favorite cliches and I was singing along from the very first listen. Just a little issue I have with it, I had to triple check that Lorde didn't write this. I wonder what TSwift's newest best friend thinks of this track that reeks of Pure Heroine in the best way. Lindsay Zoladz of Vulture describes Blank Space as "a good deal peppier than anything on Pure Heroine but has a rhythm that reminds me so much of its lead-off track "Team" that I find myself wanting to add a "... you can watch from your window" at the end of every verse." The resemblance doesn't make me hate it, I just don't want Swift ripping off the artists I genuinely love. Let's hope this is as far as she goes. Anyone else hear the similarities?

My co-workers at the office are obsessed with Taylor Swift and have been begging me to watch this video. Now that I've seen this.. man, she changes her sound a lot with every album! It must be interesting to see her in concert.
play what you like as often as you like and forget the idiots! I think I'll make a Nickel Back, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber playlist lol
@drlizardo I completely agree! Pop music tends to 'borrow' from all other genres and turn it into something popular and easily consumable, but I just found this one really obvious. Especially since Swift is now such close friends with Lorde hahah But yeah, I have unapologetically been playing this on repeat since I first discovered it :)
Ha I actually started that sentence with theirs lol! gee whiz
@danidee My friend saw her Red tour and couldn't stop talking about it. She's a great performer, imo!

Taylor Swift's Director is Such a Petty Person OMFG
Alright, I don't even know where to start with this. So a music video director, Joseph Kahn, who is Korean American, has been accused of copyright many times before. He most recently worked on Taylor's newest video. Most famously and obviously, he is known for copying 2NE1's Come Back Home video: Now like, at this point, whatever right? 2NE1 are queens and a little copy pasting didn't harm them and its been 3 years so let's move on. Until petty Joe Shmoe had to drop this tweet after he, once again, was accused of copying (this time from Beyonce): THERE IS SO MUCH WRONG WITH THIS TWEET WTF. 1. Obscure kpop video LOL thats just disrespectful on so many levels. Disrespectful to 2NE1, disrespectful to the Kpop fandom as a whole, disrespectful to the director and other people who worked hard to create the music video. It's also like...wrong??? How can a 60million+ viewed video be obscure. He's clearly just a very insecure man. 2. North Korean basement woooooow what a shithead. Sorry for my language but joking about North Korea is such a low horrible move and I'm just like???????? Plus, Koreans still struggle with people assuming South Korea is just as starving and backwards as North Korea and have to work hard to remind people that no, we aren't brainwashed, no we don't eat dog, etc (im not saying north koreans are all brainwashed or eat dog, im just saying those are the horrible stereotypes I hear from ignorant people when I talk about liking Korean things...) For him, as a Korean American, to say spew this crap is just infuriating. Why keep bringing this up? Because you're pissed you got caught? Because you're petty? Because you're so insecure? Idek man but the north korean comment was just too far. money (i wont even say fame cause tbh he's not famous he just works for famous people lmao) makes you so ugly.
