How does /mu/ feel about Taylor Swift?
I remember some interesting discussions when 1989 came out.
I love a lot of her songs, and she'smy celebrity crush, but I'm not a huge fan of 1989. lyrics are just as good as Red, but I hate that she sold out.

should have stuck with country and nothing else.
Then I would probably never heard of her and she would have already two kids with some handegg quarterback I also never heard of. And while I definitely enjoyed her image the most during SN and Red eras, 1989 is probably her best album to date.
I used to be into her and participated in /tsg/ but I got bored of her around the time she released Shake It Off and announced 1989. She could've gone in an interesting, more mature direction after Red but she's just pandering now.

Didn't like 1989 at first but it's defiantly grown on me. Red has some highlights but I think it tries to hard to be a concept album but ultimately lacks cohesion and direction. For an album about heartbreak, it just doesn't hit hard enough for me, and the lyrics aren't to par with Speak Now.
1989 has this great energy behind it. Felt like she's trying to avoid being pigeonholed into just being a country artist. She used it as an opportunity to get back at critics, parody herself, and just have fun. Reading into the album's backstory, it sounds like she had a great time making it.
And I don't really know if she 'sold out'. It's not like she hasn't always made very radio friendly pop music.
/tsg/ was goat, so was TNESD on hr, it's a shame both went to shit and disappeared
>promoter of feminism, wears skimpy outfits, friends with Lena Dunham and VS models

This, it's like you've read my mind, I wouldn't change a single word in your post.

she does it in the most inoffensive way possible though, she's still trying extremely hard not to offend anyone
/tsg/ was such a comfy little community. Most of /mu/ was kind enough to just filter and ignore us instead try and ruin our fun.
Taylor seemed to have found something that worked. I guess not originally being from the south or country scene helped.
