Taylor Swift won a number of awards at the iHeartRadio Awards final evening, such as most effective tour. She wore a blue/purple sequined romper, a appear she’s completed just before, in years previous, in eras previous. And that wasn’t the only issue that felt old, like a rerun. Like we’ve been right here just before. 

For the duration of her acceptance speech for the tour, she opened on defence – the haters mentioned this tour would suck and no a single would come. Effectively hahahahaha. Essentially. I imply, certain, you could argue that her remarks had been in service of her fans and acknowledging their loyalty but there’s far more than a single way to do that, non? Watch under if you haven’t currently: 

I’m not opposed to providing a f-ck you to the haters, stomping on a stage when people today have doubted you – who does not reside for a fantastic HAHAHAHAHA…when you are an underdog. That is the distinction although, that is the disconnect. Taylor sounds like she’s an underdog, like no a single believed in her and the odds had been stacked against her when, nicely, when have the odds been stacked against her? She’s not an underdog. She knows she’s not an underdog. She’s won TWO Grammys for Album of the Year! Positioning herself as a single to highlight the assistance of her fans appears disingenuous to me and also a distortion of what an underdog truly appears like. If SHE’s an underdog who wants their support, how lengthy does every person else have to wait for support? There’s an “us against the world” mentality right here that I’m not certain is sustainable. At what point does the message alter from “you’re right here for the reason that we’re attempting to prove something” to “we’re all right here for the reason that we want to be”? 

Hopefully the subsequent era? The incoming new era? She’s not saying when that will be, although she does acknowledge that everyone’s hunting into the clues, even the butterflies on her footwear are being taken as a sign of something. From snake to butterfly, that is the metaphor. Um, I hope not. Mainly because it is an overused and corny ass metaphor. Whilst we’re at it, very same goes for the swan metaphor. Can not she just be wearing butterfly footwear for the reason that she just wanted to put on butterflies?
