I realize that my beloved T.Swift has been getting some harsh words thrown her way. There are a lot of people out there who don’t love her, her songs, or her “NO WAY! I can’t believe I won AGAIN!” award speeches. Some people question her talent. Others question her character. Some even wonder when she’s gonna start straightening her hair.
I am in none of those categories. Taylor’s lyrics may not be as boundary crashing as GaGa and she might not have a voice like Beyonce, but we can all relate to her songs about heartache and that feeling you get after an amazing date. Tay Tay gets it and more importantly, she gets us. So don’t turn your back on the girl who introduced you to a happier side of the story of Romeo and Juliet! We always need a best friend like Taylor Swift in our lives to sing us through the bad times AND to give us a lyric high after an amazing night.
So here are 5 reasons why Ms. Swift is the ideal BFFAEAEAEAEAE…..
Taylor Swift will never leave you. Her music can forever be with you, on your iPod, ring tones, blasting it in your car…I think you get the point. T.Swift will always be your friend, even when there is no one around. Which leads me to my next point…
Taylor Swift comforts you when no one else can. Sometimes friends just don’t know what to say, but T.Swift…she knows what to say. Better yet, she puts what to say in a catchy song that you can belt out to get rid of your frustrations. Taylor, like you, has been through some pretty messy situations and can probably relate to them just as well as your friends. But unlike your friends, you can put her on repeat and dance to her advice in your PJs.
Taylor Swift can help you get dressed: The girl’s got style. And unlike many (ahem Miley ahem) she’s a celebrity who dresses appropriately for her age AND…wait for it…stays classy! Taking cues from T.Swift wouldn’t be a bad thing. Even your parents would agree.
Taylor Swift is just plain cool. I want to be able to write a song about my ex, have him hear it…then have him wish he had never dated me! The courage that she puts into her songs, by writing about her OWN life, amazes me. I wish more people would be able to speak their mind. And make millions for it.
I have a feeling Taylor Swift has kick ass dating horror stories. Let’s be real…if her dating life is like her songs, which it obviously is, then girl has got to have some amazing horror stories (or at least details about what Taylor Lautner/John Mayer/Jake Gyllenhall look like nakey). What’s better than hearing her tales and sharing your own over pancakes and coffee on a hungover Sunday morning?
Even if you (claim to) hate T. Swift’s songs (and secretly listen to them in your car), you can’t deny that deep down, you sorta love her and her catchy beats. And for good reason; there’s a lot to love. Which is why instead of hating on her we should rally around her and be grateful for the girl who understands what we’re going through and is there to go through it all with us.
