Everyone seems to hate Taylor Swift nowadays and frankly I think all of you are jealous. Well, I have a confession: I don’t need to be jealous because Taylor and I are best friends so I know the “real” Taylor. I’ve been reading People and other trashy gossip mags (which I
rarely always read, just to see what people are saying about my best friend) which have said that she’s a creepy stalker because she bought a house near the Kennedy’s or that she can’t take a joke because she freaked out about Amy Pohler and Tina Fey joking about her dating life.
Well the truth is (in my mind) there’s nothing wrong with being a stalker. I’ll admit, I may have crazily stalked a guy that I liked in
high school in college, okay…both. Sure I came on too strong, looked like a crazy hopeless romantic weirdo and freaked all of my friends out but neither of those guys were complaining. I don’t have any restraining orders against me. Guys out there, raise your hand if you would mind Taylor Swift moving in next door to you because she has a crush on you? We’ve all seen the “You Belong With Me” music video and girl-next-door Taylor taught us that you can win over your true love via cutsey little window messages (If you haven’t seen it…you can leave and watch it now) so why is it so much different if you just “happen” to buy a house next door to the guy in order to make this scenario possible?
And then SOME people are all judgey towards Tay (that’s what I call her, because we’re best friends in the whole wide world you know?) and are saying that she’s somehow immoral because she dates a lot of guys. Have any of you people been to college?! Because I’ve seen some girls (NOT judging) who make Taylor look like me when I was 13 (aka sitting on my loft bed writing in my diary and making a list of the cute guys in my class who had never talked to me…yes this list really does exist). What I’m saying is…Taylor is a 23 year old SUPERSTAR (I sometimes forget since she’s so down to earth and we hangout and do normal things like eat pizza and talk about the unflattering photos of us in the tabloids and plan our next trip to the Caribbean BUT you normal people should seriously remember). Taylor’s modest but she’s confided in me (her best friend) that she receives at least fifty love letters a day. And every so often they are even from creeps who say they want to tie her up and lock her in their basement (I don’t know why people who feel this way feel compelled to share in a letter). Can you honestly say that faced with so many suitors you would choose a life of netflix, instagramming pictures of your newest nail polish and frozen pizza? If you said “yes” you’re a liar. I may not agree with all of her dating decisions (One Direction guy…I’m talking to you) but that’s part of being friends with someone right? If I liked all of my friends’ boyfriends who would I spend my free time scheming against? I only date a guy if I know one of my friends is bound to hate him, it keeps things interesting.
Maybe I’m a little bit bias because Taylor dedicated the song from her latest album, “22”, to me because we’ve had so many brunch dates turned crazy nights we spent forgeting about the deadlines/heartbreak turned hipster dance parties. Even though I’m only 21, Taylor told me that I’m a pretty sophisticated dancer that could easily pass as 22. Still, I’m human just like all of you Taylor haters and I think the world has been a little to critical on the poor girl. I suggest spending more time worrying about Kim Kardashian’s future offspring and the terrible TV shows they’re bound to bring into this world and less time hating on Taylor’s perfect hair and love life.
In the end I guess none of this really matters though, I mean whose the one with the Koi pond in her living room? It’s Tay.
P.S. Taylor looked amazing on the cover of Vanity Fair right? Oh and this post is
completely mostly sort of a joke, I don’t take back what I said about Kim though.
Oh AND today I am “linking up” with Sara Elizabeth at Pearls and Curls!
