Anyone Else Here Hate Taylor Swift??

Just something about her.. I can not stand!

Not just her music, which is god awful (but I admit I hate country music, perhaps if you like Country Music, you like her, no idea.. i think she sucks)

and it always seems like she is playing this victim role... "he broke my heart.. Kanye stole my mic... blah blah blah"

Every song she puts out is about her relationship with some dude.

She comes across to me like the Catholic school girl whose father swears to everyone that she is the perfect angel, but behind closed doors she is in the S&M gear with the whip and chains!

Her whole persona just grates me!

I see they are trying to put her in more and more movies, I hope she doesn't become a bankable actress!

I felt bad for her during the VMAs when Kanye interrupted her but then I found out how much money she makes a year and suddenly didnt feel so bad for her.

Don't care for her music, but she's very pretty. Not sure I would want to date her though because I don't want to be written about in somebody's song.

I don't like her music. I think it's tedious and bland, with every song signifying that Taylor Swift has no idea that high school is behind her.

That being said, I do think she has talent as a singer and she knows how to play guitar which isn't something most Top 40 pop stars can claim these days. She also seems like a nice girl and a hard worker and it's nice to see a public music figure act as a good role model. I'd rather have young girls looking up to Taylor Swift than harlots like Snookie, Kim Kardashian, and P!nk, and I'd be surprised if any of you guys disagreed with that.

So no, I don't hate Taylor Swift. I don't like her music, mainly because, and I'm just venturing a guess here, I'm not the demographic. But I do think it's nice to see a Top 40 artist with talent and a clean persona.

Yes, the last thing we want is more hot young women acting like sluts.

Her music is one note and boring, but she has a level of competency and professionalism that most of these freakin' bullshit pop diva's don't. I respect her more than I enjoy her music.

You're right. I love materialistic, shallow women with no self-respect.

Well... when it is said like that, I of course agree! At the very least Taylor Swift has talent... i don't like her music, but she is famous because she has talent. That can not be said for Snookie or Kardashian... although I don't know what is wrong with Pink??

My problem with her is simply that she just plays this victim all the time, all the songs are about how she was a victim in her relationships, the Kanye thing made her a national victim... and she just seems to be a closeted, I don't want to say whore, but that is the only word I can think of. She dates all these big name dudes, you know she is getting banged by all of them, then she writes these shitty pop songs about them.

I'm pretty sure I've never heard a Taylor Swift song and I guess I'm lucky going by the responses so far.

Like you guys, I'm not the demographic for her music, but I can't hate her because she isn't a completely worthless human being like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton.

Wasn't she also supposed to be in Les Miz at one point?

Well P!nk's music tends to glamorize getting completely trashed every night, so I thought I'd include her. It's not so much about talent; I think if Kim Kardashian acted like a model citizen and did charity events and really acted as a good role model for girls, I'd be fine with her despite her lack of actually doing anything.

And I'm not sure what separates Taylor Swift from everyone else in terms of them victimizing themselves in a breakup song. What breakup song have you ever heard about the singer being a total asshole to his/her significant other? I'm sure there are some around, but there are probably even more where the singer was allegedly wronged. As for the debacle with Kanye West . . . he was a massive asshole to her, and I say that while also being a huge Kanye West fan.

It's funny you say that because having been forced to listen to her CD's while on vacation with my girlfriend (I know, I know but my girl likes good shit too. I could just as easily put on Iron Maiden and she'd rock out with me) there was one song that stuck out because it was her who was the asshole, not the guy. I said the exact same thing to my girlfriend that you said in your post. "Babe, all her songs are the same shit, just repackaged. She's always a victim."
"Nuh-uh! This one song is about the guy being the victim!"
"Ok babe, I'll give her credit for the ONE song"

To her credit, she has NEVER made a big deal about the Kanye thing. I'm no fan of here, but it was others who kept talking about that (which was a decently big deal at the time and was totally classless by Kanye).

I'm not a fan of her. But songwriting-wise, she doesn't play victim any more than other artists in her stratosphere of talent and genre.

This accusation seems silly to me. Would you call Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Aniston... or just about anyone in Hollywood whores? Doesn't seem like she's any more active than her peers.

I don't hate Taylor Swift. I didn't care for her at first but have learned to accept her.

Taylor Swift is the ultimate high school mean girl. If we as a nation are so hell bent on pushing anti-bullying and "it gets better" campaigns then we need to stop putting bullying drama queens like Swifty on a pedestal. (And all things Jersey Shore for that matter.) Anyone gullible enough to date her is part of the problem at this point.

Well it is true if someone makes it big whether it is a ctor or singer we always ahve to push them down a peg or two

I think that taylor is a great role model for young girls l would prefer her to alot of singers who have to promote sex in there songs

There was a singer called Susie Quatro who was interveiwed on a aussie show

She said alot of female singers prmote to much se in there songs and l have to say she is right there

I find that taylor dresses like a lady and doesnt have to show her boobs to sell her music where others have to go further

No she just sleeps around and trashes every guy she gets near and bullies girls into oblivion in her songs. (CONSTANTLY calling girls that her last trick dated later "sluts" when she is worse.)

Hate is too strong a word for me and reserved for those that earn it.
For me, it's an over saturation of her, that damned song, and those f-ing bangs.
Nothing PERSONALLY against her but just the sight of her at this point...you're asking for a rude response.

ya.. that was always my biggest problem with her... she plays this sweet innocent persona to the masses so moms let their little girls idolize her, but she is obviously a (not so) closeted "Lady of the night"!
