I began to notice this I think first at the Victoria Secret fashion show. I had been watching the show while drinking down beers with friends, it was a mix of guys and girls. First Fall Out Boy came out and did their thing, everyone at the party watched the show, watched the models, it was a normal day. When Swift came out for her performance you would of thought that hell had just frozen over
“She’s not a model”
“She looks okay”
“She thinks she’s a super model.”
What were these phrases that were being said? I much like every other male in the room thought she looked great and went about watching the show in the same manner as the FOB performance. I couldn’t understand the aggression. We fast forward to the Grammy’s, music’s big night out with great performances from a variety of different artists and performers.
I was hanging out with a different group of people some of them being girls and i brought up the topic “Hey did you see the grammy’s? Who was your favorite performance?” Imagine Dragons x Kendrick Lamar seemed to have been the most popular. I asked what they thought of Beyonce’s performance “Oh she totally killed it, love her, shes so sexy”
When I asked “What did you think of Taylor Swifts performance?”
I was greeted with a “Eh, she’s just so annoying. She knew the camera was on her and she was just there dancing.” “Her song was okay”
Wait a second.
You’re mad at her for having fun and dancing to a good song? I was dancing and i wasn’t even there. Who are we to judge what is acceptable and not acceptable? I sing in public and i most certainly dance in public, do i frustrate you as well? In trying to wrap my head around this entire idea i think i’ve come to a conclusion.
People love artists that they have nothing in common with.
You and Beyonce are nothing a like. Like at all.
She’s queen B, married to Jay-Z and vacations in the south of France.
Yet when she gets up there in a thong, lap dancing on a chair in one of the more provocative performances of the evening people cheer and applaud. (I’m not saying this wasn’t a good performance, i thought she killed it) When Taylor swift plays the piano by herself in a long dress and sings about a boy she once knew you would think she’s talking about mass genocide. People can’t touch Beyonce because they can’t relate to her, its open season on Taylor Swift.
Why is this? It is because girls have a lot in common with Taylor Swift. Everyone views her as the girl next door, america’s sweet heart. This relates directly to how massive of a super star she is but at the same time is also the main reason people dislike her so much. They relate too much to her. Shes annoying because you understand her, you know someone like her.
I don’t know Taylor Swift but i would assume she’s pretty much like every 20something like myself. At the end of the day everyone is just trying to figure life out one day at a time.
I challenge you to look inward towards yourself and to get positive about people. There’s so much wrong with the world, so much negativity, why should we add to it? I’ve been trying to get positive about people, talk less shit. I know its hard, its way easier to sarcastically bash someone then build them up but I try to put myself in their shoes. I want people to say “Hey I hung out with Danny Kurily the other day, he’s really fun to be around.”
Are You being the person that you would want to date or hang out with?
