    Taylor Swift is pretty famous, as you've probably noticed. It seems, at first, she has everything. Fame, money, power, everything.
    But, as we see from her songs and interviews, not everything is rainbows and butterflies. I dove in to see what I could find and found something I think it a little interesting.
    Taylor Swift always had that kind of squeaky clean girl-next-door kind of image, but now, like every other celebrity entering their mid to late 20s, she's trying sabotage that image for... well, for something else.
    It's interesting, at least to me, to see people who seemingly have everything fall into the same holes and make the same mistakes, or “choices” as every other celebrity.
    What is it about fame that does this?

    Or maybe she's just singing about that one time she allowed herself to fall for that wrong guy because it still affects her ...and it sells. People relate.

    you realize that this is a real person? and you’re just making assumptions and judgements about her personal life and mental health?
    also scott swift invested in big machine records after she was signed because the label owner created the label for her.
    taylor swift is a person and y’all love to treat her like a character.

  • incompetentLP
    incompetentLP 29 days ago, getting into a relationship with someone who you know is "trouble" is not self-destructive behaviour. It is not uncommon, especially in younger men and women, to do exactly that and almost everybody who has had a few relationships has at least one story where they were into someone who they KNEW wasn't good for them or when they knew it would never last.
    There tend to be many different motivations behind that kind of attraction one feels in those cases, and yes, self-destructive behaviour can be one of them. In her case however that is very unlikely because if she was in any way self-destructive, her career would actually suffer from that. Take a look at Miley Cyrus around the time she did "Wreckingball" - THAT is a prime example of self-destructive behaviour from a public persona. Where Cyrus rebels and tears down the image the public has of her so she can be who she wants to be (which is among the most common causes for this, which is why it is often seen in teens and young adults), Swift is actually extremely constructive when it comes to her own life and career, not destructive in the slightest.

    But I've always hated her. Not even dislike...but hate! Her personality is so bad , she is very wild and unorganized! And she doesn't care about her mental health and physical health! She is so careless.......ah
    If she has 10000000000000money but give some cuty cuty fan 000.1 ,it doesn't make her good in my eyes. She is and always was so selfish. She only cares about herself. Always wearing so fancy dresses. Everything fancy.... she has cats but not even caring about other cats in the world!!!!! Who the f are you!? Are you even human being?
    5:54 oooo Ive finally met you :))
    And bro I don't wanna be rich and famous. Every one who wants that is a total psycho who must be ignored, while now any psycho jump into be a celebrity and make the world a total s* and we always are forced to bear about them and see those ugly faces..I'm tired of it.:/

    This grand conspiracy that she s only dating for attention and to get material for her songs and that everything she does is a calculated lie, her being the greatest manipulator of our times is so hilarious. Blank space is literally a joke she talked about the story behind the song on many occasions. Lwymmd was her way of coping with the kimye drama and it doesn t take a 200 iQ to realise the whole video is a taunt at the reputation the media created for her 'mass manipulator, her charity is for attention' the whole reputation album and tour are about how the world took a young unexperienced girl who dated bad people and wrote honestly about her experince and escalated it 1000 times

    K, I really like Taylor and I like a bunch of her songs (and know as many/more), but I can count the number of songs she has that aren’t about a relationship on one hand, unlike many other artists at the same level as her (popularity wise). Just putting that out there (it’s also probably why she gets the most attention to her songs being [only] about relationships, compared to other artists)

    I'm just not a huge Swift fan in general and personally... I felt she kind of sold out a little in her music. Like she started country with pinches of pop/rock which is cool. But then Shake it Off came out and from there she sort of just got sucked into the Pop world of music. I felt she had a good image back then but got swallowed up and lost herself

    It can't be a coincidence that almost al I'm bigger celebs have this behavior. It's probably because people like you and me watch everything they do under a microscope. Maybe this is their way to show us they just don't care.....

    I do not understand why just coz she's a cleleb that she needs to be catagoried in one thing as a whole or in each "eras" like she's either crazy or manipulative or just something particular for people like us to find out. She can be just a girl who's got talents, fame and money with all kinds of normal complications of life with the changes of growing up and being a bit of crazy, good, bad and everything else coz she's a normal human being at the end of it all.

    Is the real question here, why do people keep seeking money, possessions, property, popularity, fame, stardom, power, etc when even the people who have it are not happy and even ruining their own lives though they can have anything they want. So is the lesson to be learned here, that money doesn't lead to happiness in life?

    Great video, mental health is a spectrum of healthy and negative coping. We all have weak areas and are missing some tools to have our best lives but we can learn better ways to cope that benefit our future selves. Having controlling parents, protective parents and other less than ideal environments in childhood can cause someone to need more control. Also she is probably an Avoidant attachment style, so dating people that are in their current state as trash, allows her to keep her emotional distance to some extent but temporarily meet our need for connection...partially without becoming dependant and vulnerable to true intimacy.

    Even their 'real talk' songs/interviews/blogs/etc are manufactured products, they suffer that's why some are given or take drugs, that's why some end up dead or insane (looking at you Miley). My life is warmth, safety, food and all the people who matter know my name. That's good enough for me personally. But what's wrong with just being a popular entertainer? What traumas befell those who want this miserable 'celebrity life'?

    Do you have a Phd in Psychology? People that don't have degrees to diagnose can't be loosely giving diagnostics. We can give opinion don't get me wrong but if your not a clinical psychologist don't throw diagnostics like that. Is about the principal. It is true that famous people have a diffrent perspective in life because most of them never here no. Therefore some on them get lost in the life. This may come with getting mixed with people that may not have your best interest at heart, the party's, hooking up with man that they know are not good for them but have the opportunity to do so. There are lost of factors but my point in the end is if you dont have a clinical psychologist, Mental Health Counselor or a psychiatrist no one should be giving diagnostics like is so normal. #Justsaying

  • Amy Aberrant
    Amy Aberrant 8 months ago

    Taylor's public persona(s) are her way of making fun of the fake persona the media gave her, in order for them to make money. She really isn't the man-eating fame whore people think she is, that character is something the media stir up whenever they need to sell a story. Her writing songs like blank space, LWYMMD, and even ready for it, is her way of laughing at the rumours that were designed to hurt her. It is a power move. Showing indifference or humour at things that are meant to be insulting shows strength, and shows the bullies that they won't win.
    It is wrong and also sexist, to say that the reason she's had bad relationships is to use men for song writing. Aside from the obvious victim blaming, an artist does not need to do that in order to create their art, she can write songs whether she's dating or not, and some of her most powerful songs aren't even about relationships or dating. She was 19 years old when she dated John Mayer (who IKYWT is written about), and she is now 29 and more settled and dating better men. Most people have made bad decisions in their youth, and that shouldn't be used to paint a woman as a sad case.

    This is very rare coming from me, but honestly so much of the hate taylor receives is in fact a result of media's portrayal and societal expectations of women. Like sorry.... but it's pure double standards. Do you see the media scrutinizing artists like Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber when they write a million songs about their love life and heartbreak and what not??? And worse.... the amount of hate she receives is like on level with sexual offenders, racist d-bags, etc in hollywood. People act like she fucking murdered someone for maybe being a little fickle in her relationships. At this point it's bandwagon hate and getting really old~

    I don't know who Taylor Swift is so I won't actually talk about her personality or her habits or whatever. What I do care about is music and I find her music is very bland. It is monotonous and after listening to it the first time I would surely never listen to it again. It just doesn't have that spark which differentiates good music from bad. Mostly we just emphasis so much more on the singer and we forget about their work or what their music is about. It is kind of frustrating. I personally think her music is for those twelve-year-olds who like to gossip about cute boys would be willing to listen to anything about princesses and relationships without any sort of meaning behind it.

  • Sanaa Mariam
    Sanaa Mariam 8 months ago

    This is....such a bad video. I appreciate how you got that conclusion, I guess, but part of the reason that I appreciate her as a writer is that her whole discography (yes 200 songs or so) go on to cover a whole complex range of different mindsets, with different types of relationships. She has songs that have nothing to do with boys, songs about refusing to lower her standards enough to end up relationship that will make her unhappy, songs about growing up, etc and as her career has progressed her views on relationships and the kind of responses she gives to questions about her songwriting have changed too. You've completely misinterpreted the songs you've mentioned. Blank Space was intended entirely as satire, not buying into hyperbole, to show how strange and bizarre the "real" Swift that people have accused her of being is, and I Knew You Were Trouble (which was written as promotion for an album exclusively about a difficult set of relationships she had while writing her Red album) is about her explicitly acknowledging for the first time as a teenage star turning into an adult, that she had her own part to play in a terrible relationship. It just takes fifteen minutes of searching to find songs like New Years Day, Call It What You Want, Clean, Begin Again or even angrier songs like Tell Me Why and White Horse to see her publicly reaffirming over and over again she's not going to put up with mistreatment and wants a healthy, supportive relationship of her own. I don't understand how its a reasonable conclusion that a woman who writes, producers, conceptualises her own music videos, owns stake in her own company and is extensively involved in planning her tours is in anyway inherently self destructive when everything else points to the fact that she's very very determined to be successful and happy regardless of what people say about her. There's already been a ton of interesting literature, especially by young women, about how Taylor Swift explicitly selling herself as this sort of relatable, pg 13 older sister figure means she's held up to this almost impossible standard of purity and how her insistence that being well liked is as important as being successful (since she constantly talks about how she doesn't have thick skin and avoids googling herself, etc) is kind of her downfall because she can never fully commit to the idea of playing the villain even on reputation. But like, I dont understand this obsession with trying to figure out the "real" taylor swift when girly is literally laying everything on the table and presenting this incredibly complicated, multi faceted story about someone who's ambitious and successful but also incredibly hated, and what that means for america and how they see women. I'm over people taking straight up slander (like obviously fake dating rumors) and insisting they're facts to support whatever narrative they feel like that day.

  • Mukhtar "Billy" Vanmali

    People need to realise there's NO such thing as "the perfect life", no matter how much money or fame or beauty you may have. There's just varying degrees of bullshit that you have to deal with regardless. And everyone deals in their own way and eventually learns the best way for them but this usually comes after a lot of fuckups. But I believe those fuckups are necessary evils cos its how you learn and how you know what not to do, and the journey to get from fucking up to knowing better is life, it's gonna be your story and your experience, and without it you wouldn't be who you're meant to be. Your fuckups are what make you better and ultimately what makes you the best version of yourself in the end. On the other side of every storm is a greater sense of joy, you just gotta get there. 👍🏽💙💜

    she's a calculative money hungry pop star who has lived her entire life in leisure, she's the furthest thing from being sad. this has nothing to do with self destructive behaviour which is a serious condition and we can't go around diagnosing some celeb with it just because of a few lyrics, she just seeks guys who seem 'problematic' and the perfect bad guy to the public so when the break up happens (which she knows always happens) according to her plan, she'll suck everything out of that relationship and supposed 'love story' and make her self look like the victim and innocent girl who got used and her heart broken once again.

  • Amaki
    Amaki 10 months ago

    I like your videos but here's my take on this (I'm a fan of her music, full disclosure).
    She doesn't *have* to date a man in order to write a song. She could have easily written "I Knew You Were Trouble" without having to go through the experience she actually talks about. Of course, this takes away from the authenticity of her music but- my point is that she doesn't have to go out and purposely put herself in that situation in order to write a song, she can write it easily without that headache.
    So to say that she actively puts herself in those situations with the men she dates is kind of non-sensical. You're talking about her like she isn't a regular human with regular human emotions. People fall in love without knowing and sometimes get into bad relationships, that's just reality. It happens to everyone. So how come she gets so scrutinized for it? I don't believe she is "actively sabotaging" herself, she is just simply being human and making human mistakes (as we all do).
    I mean to a certain extent, she controls how the public views her. You can also argue that she 'purposely publicizes her relationships' so that her songs seems authentic. But if you've listened to her last two albums and actually heard what she's saying through them, you can tell she doesn't care for that at all. She rather just create music for her fans, who with or without all the media bs, will buy her albums because her writing is just that powerful.
    Her life isn't 'sad' and she doesn't need your pity. She's at a point where she couldn't care less about videos like this analyzing her and pretending to know what exactly is wrong with her life. How would you like it if someone made a video telling you what you're doing wrong, calling you a 'sad' person? Well she has to deal with that literally everyday. She is a celebrity but she is human too and it would be nice of you to acknowledge that.
    Her actions are not a consequence of her losing her mind due to money and fame, she's just being human.

    Either that or she has commitment issues or likes bad boys too much. I mean, how many women are like that nowadays, then later regret it after they've hit 30-35? Taylor ain't exactly far away from that.

    • Stefan Makara
      Stefan Makara 10 months ago

      Nah I don't mind the long read
      And yes, I get what you are saying, and I do think that seeking validation from that type of men is both useless and not needed, but when I say 'no, we are not just practice girlfriends after 30' and 'we can look good when old too' it is not to try and make some man 'lower his standards', it is simply me talking to you and saying my opinion. And thing is, this should be talked about at least a little, since many many women are actually convinced that what society stereotypes claim is true. It isn't, unless you make it true yourself.
      As for looks and relationships... I don't mind too much. I just like to be in control. For an example, my most stable relationship started with a dude whom I met in the gym. We're talking no makeup, sweating like a pig, awful hair. He loved my personality and the first time I actually put effort was when we were already together. Now, I am actually losing weight in order to be attractive because I want to be able to casually start a relationship without a dude having to look deep into my soul. Yes, I will probably land a guy who would only view me as a friend if I wasn't pretty, but that's my choice. I'm in control, and that's what's important to me.
      Although, I am not taking this too seriously but wtf was that about missing father??

    • Valeria Daneva
      Valeria Daneva 10 months ago

      Stefan Makara Wait, so you're a woman? Your writing made me suspicious, but I didn't want to assume anything because of the name. Anyway, mind you, I said men and women being attracted to each other for shallow reasons wasn't exactly ideal. Hell, I've had issues with getting guys to find me attractive back in high school and throughout most of my life. The only time when, suddenly, they paid attention to me, was when I wore a more revealing and loose-fitting dress (a very well-made one, mind you, a night gown of sorts, not worn simply to look slutty), put make-up on and let my hair down.
      I did get lots of compliments, as well as a guy who largely didn't care about me and whom I used to have a crush on beforehand suddenly be interested. But I honestly got more annoyed at it than not, because it just proved to me that everything I had experienced up until that point was all because of petty bullshit and me simply not tickling their cock in the right direction. So I said fuck it, and never wore make-up on a casual basis, just like I did before, the only exception being the start of my freshman year (I put on some foundation to look clean). I also still wear maternity bras (they're more comfortable) and never wear anything revealing unless I need to. I basically make no effort to look attractive unless it's necessary for a formal party or something, even though I very much could.
      I just don't see the point of attracting someone who only values you for something that will largely be gone in 20 years, and whom I will resent constantly because of it. But I don't try to convince men out of it like other women seem to want to do, because I don't consider myself entitled to a guy's love or affection, and if they're the type to reject me for my looks, I probably won't want them around anyway.
      Like, I don't really get most women in this way. I mean, on a rational level, I know why they do it, but intuitively it doesn't make sense to me. They seem so dependent on validation, they still want men whom they claim "uphold patriarchal standards of beauty" and even if they rage against make up or revealing clothing, they STILL FUCKING DO IT, as if every guy suddenly has to stop liking pretty women, even if said women still expect six packs and six figures. Same thing goes for women who date assholes whilst expecting them to change, rather than _*just stop dating the motherfuckers*_. But no, said men get their pussy wet, so they just HAVE to have them, thinking their vagina is all that's needed for their asshole-ishness not to be targetted towards them at some point down the line. But that's a different story...
      And yeah, you not wanting to be with those types of men is fine. Again, I actually agree with that. But I'm just generalising what typically happens in relationships. Heck, I agree that the best outcome is to have someone with a moderate, but stable income. Plus, the whole businessman stuff usually requires the guy to be absent most of the time, and I'd prefer that he have some time to spend with the kids. 'Cause absence of fathers isn't exactly healthy.
      As for the aging gracefully thing...yeah, it's not out of question for women. Especially if she doesn't have any bad habits like drinking, smoking, doing drugs, being promiscuous, or doesn't have a missing father. Or, in some cases, gave birth early. But again, it still happens more rarely than it does with men. Especially since said negative characteristics seem to be becoming more and more common nowadays.

      Also, it really is possible for a woman to age gracefully, mostly many need to do is watch their diet and stay away from extravagant plastic surgeries. Sophia Loren, for an example, or that chick that was 'primal instinct' or whatever it was (the one that had the leg crossing scene) Also Audrey Hepburn. Oh, and Adriana Lima, reaching 40 and still looking flawless.

      Listen, I don't read many articles about women who cannot date. I do not doubt that gold diggers are bitter that their chances grow slimmer every year they age.
      However, if a man only wants me for my beauty, I don't want to be with him. And if I was a guy, I wouldn't want a woman that wants me only for my money.
      I am talking about real love, healthy relationships based on kinship and respect. That can be found at any age. Me? When it comes to money, I don't care how much he makes, I just want that he is not a lazy slob, but that is a personality change. I would rather be with a teacher of very modest income who makes less than I do than with a dude who lives off of mom's pensions and lives in her basement. And I would rather be with the teacher than with a successful businessman who buys me expensive jewelry but treats me like an object.
      So if that is what we are talking about, love, not relationships based on money and looks, I do not think that women wasted their youth if they haven't married by thirty. Some may have wasted their chance of marrying Donald Trump, but to me, that is not much big of a sacrifice. But that's just me, wanting relationship that works on more than one side delivering beauty and the other side delivering money. And yes, such relationships are possible and they happen often.But you know, you don't have papparazi filming them all over.

      Stefan Makara Most men evidently do. Again, just like most women base their attraction to a man on how much money a man makes. A man being over 30 is actually a plus for most women, because he tends to make more money at that point. I mean, how many instances can you think of of men marrying or having girlfriends that are 20-years-olds when they're 50+? Plenty of Hollywood actors have that kind of relationship. Because guess what? They have the finances for it.
      There's also the fact that men age more gracefully. Again, how many instances are there of male actors who are 50 looking pretty much the same as they did when they were 20? Leonardo Dicaprio, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, etc. How may women do you know that have achieved the same, and don't have to cover up their age with heavy make-up, plastic surgery, or Photoshop filters in their films? Just compare Donald Trump Jr and his wife's photos from 20 years ago to how they look now. He looks like he hasn't aged a day, she looks like a completely different person.
      And again, I know there are countless variables, but if we're talking about the vast majority of people, most of them want kids. Specifically, around 80%. And even if they don't - again, differences in attractiveness. You seem to believe the vast majority of people somehow don't base their attraction to others on very petty and shallow reasons, and largely don't care about personality, or consider that a secondary factor. If one factor is a priority, you'd have to have a shining example of everything else in order to attract attention, and most people don't.
      Women want status and men want beauty. Not every single one, obviously, but the majority do. I'm not saying they SHOULD, I'm simply describing how things are. Personality is definitely a factor, but it's a comparatively minor one. When you first meet someone, you're hardly going to be fully capable of understanding their personality, so all you have to go off of is the superficial aspects of a partner you want. And if they don't have them, chances are you're not going to be motivated enough to continue.
      And when it comes to women specifically, even if they could still get a partner that doesn't want kids and is fine with them being not all that attractive, they're largely too entitled to go through with it. Like, how many times have you seen articles about how women think men are intimidated by their success, hence why they don't wanna date them, when it's pretty obvious that the actual reason is either that they're too old to have kids, only care about how much money the guy makes (and thus limit their dating pool to only the men who are more successful than them, which can be very few), or act like a total cunt? Like, there was one older woman who thought guys were "intimidated" by her, but when she actually started acting pleasant to be around, suddenly she got some, albeit minor, male attention (she got a date). Very, very few women both have a personality, don't care about money too much and are still single in their old age, so it's unlikely a man would find one even if he did look for one.

    You are rumored in ohio to get copyright striked. So lookout. She writes lyrics like I do. Find a beat, and write what I feel, going on, etc., most singer, song writers, and musicians have sad social, family, love, personal, and professional lives. Some young ladies, like I was believe you can "change " or "turn " a person, or that they will have mutual feelings like you have. These days, most millennials have trouble socializing.

    I'm just saying, it's pretty common for girls to go out with a guy even if he seems like trouble or something, because most girls like "bad boys" and sometimes, in some way, think that they can "change a guy" or something similar so they make these mistakes. I don't think it's an example of "self-destructive behaviour", but I could be wrong, this is just based off my own experiences.

    • Stefan Makara
      Stefan Makara 10 months ago

      That or they just think it is worth it to cry a bit when it is over if you at least get that experience. I agree that it isn't a necessary sign of self destructive behavior. More so when Taylor really, in practice, isn't self destructive at all. One of the least problematic celebrities today, her only 'sins' are cat fights that she really only takes out maybe BRIEFLY in interviews or in her music videos- and one twitter post. No drugs, no alcohol abuse, no public stripping, no stealing... just doing her thing.

    Taylor Swift doesn't only write about boys. She's not all dating and drama and fame-hungry. Boys aren't the only thing in her life. People have crushes and people date and people brake up, okay? It's just a normal love cycle in life and Taylor just happens to find writing songs as a coping mechanism. She's not dating for money.
    And she's not successful because her family is rich, she's successful because she's super talented. Do you know how rare it is to find an artist that can create world-selling albums that she writes herself?

    • Stefan Makara
      Stefan Makara 10 months ago

      Like, her marketing and pr is great. She clearly has a great team behind her and there was a lot of work put into making her a star, both by her and her staff. But the greatest burden is on her, to sing well and write good songs, which she does, as you said, all by herself. She is a song writer as well as a singer, and she can also play both guitar and piano, so there is both talent and work there~ Her music talent would have taken her nowhere if she did not have patience and dedication to sharpen it by working on it and improving herself.

    I always thought Wildest Dreams was about a summer fling, and that she's saying maybe it will hurt when it's over but at least they will both have wonderful memories to take with them. I think that's beautiful, but that's just my interpretation of the lyrics. It doesn't seem self destructive like I Knew You Were Trouble.

    I'm probably gonna get tons of hate for this, but I find her voice quite pretty on her more melodic songs like Begin Again. I just think she doesn't care all that much about putting out vocal pieces these days. She knows the public want catchy pop a la Britney Spears so to speak, so that's what she makes.
