Taylor Swift is viewing 2017 with rose-colored glasses. Yes, the singer made a comeback and released her wildly successful album Reputation, she won her groping lawsuit and her and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn took their relationship public. It was a great year for Taylor, but not everyone is a multi-millionaire pop star.
In an Instagram post about Jingle Bell Ball Taylor wrote how she “couldn’t have asked for a better year.”

I love you guys so much. This was a photo @paul_sidoti took at @capitalofficial Jingle Bell Ball in London a few days ago. I couldn’t have asked for a better year, all thanks to you. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Can’t wait to see what 28 will be like. See you on tour 😄
But in reality, this year could have wildly better. This year was notoriously the worst year ever. There was the white supremacist march on Charlottesville, Virgina, the largest mass shooting occurred in Las Vegas, Hurricane Harvey and Irma devasted the south and so much more.
People on Twitter were quick to point on how 2017 was actually a terrible year. They couldn’t do it on Instagram because Taylor has comments blocked on all of her posts.
But people quickly pointed out that Taylor was talking about her personal year and not the year overall. But still, if you were affected by the many tragedies that happened this year then your personal year wasn’t great either.
Taylor notoriously is very quiet about political issues. Choosing to not be politically vocal is a privilege that she has because she’s white and wealthy.
Yeah, Taylor had a great personal year, but overall 2017 was a big downer.
