Taylor Swift on Style, Styles, & Not Dating

Taylor Swift has finally released the music video for her most recent single "Style" and it is everything we could have hoped for. It’s intimate and sexy and features a shirtless man. There’s also a long drive, a deserted beach, a thunderstorm and lots of longing looks. In short, it's a classic Swift video.
Without further ado,



It is no secret that most of Taylor Swift's songs are inspired by her past relationships, and is that a crime? Turns out that the entire track list of '1989' was pretty heavily influenced by her quick but impactful relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction.
“She’s still obsessed with him,” an insider told HollywoodLife. “She never got over him, like she did with with John [Mayer] and Jake [Gyllenhaal]. Harry really had a huge impact on her. She makes references to him all the time still, but if she’s confronted with the question of, ‘Why are you still singing about him?’ she’ll just say, ‘It’s just a song.’ She’ll totally downplay it.”
The song is filled with references to Styles, starting with the title and the lyrics alluding to a boy with long, slicked back hair and a white t-shirt who "can't keep his eyes on the road." To top it all off, Swift holds up a paper airplane necklace, which is similar to one that Styles has been seen wearing/gifted to Taylor.
According to Rolling Stone:
Swift won't say much about her relationship with Styles, other than that they're now friends. But talking to her, it seems clear that many of the songs on 1989 that are about a guy are about him. There's "I Wish You Would," about an ex who bought a house two blocks from hers (whom she implies was Styles). And "All You Had to Do Was Stay," about a guy who was never willing to commit (ditto). Then there's the song that sets a new high-water mark for Swiftian faux secrecy – a sexy Miami Vice-sounding throwback about a guy with slicked-back hair and a white T-shirt and a girl in a tight little skirt that is called – no joke – "Style." (She allows herself a satisfied grin. "We should have just called it 'I'm Not Even Sorry.'")

& Not Dating

But now, T.Swift has sworn off of love for the time being. In the same Rolling Stone interview, Swift explains that "[her] life is just not conducive to bringing other people into it right now. [She's] very childlike and romantic about lots of things, but [She's] realistic about this."
"I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime," Swift says. "And I'm just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore. I don't like seeing slide shows of guys I've apparently dated. I don't like giving comedians the opportunity to make jokes about me at awards shows. I don't like it when headlines read 'Careful, Bro, She'll Write a Song About You,' because it trivializes my work. And most of all, I don't like how all these factors add up to build the pressure so high in a new relationship that it gets snuffed out before it even has a chance to start. And so," she says, "I just don't date."

Confession time: I just bought 1989. I didn't want to do it, but too many of these songs are too damn catchy.
I don't think her album is as spectacular as many people say, but I really like T.Swift as a person.
You know, the more I read about her the more I like her. She is doing a pretty good job of keeping her head on straight even with the crazy press watching her every move.

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.
