I think the reason she feels like that is because she can come on here and be connected with the people who are there for her. We’ve kind of been the side of the fandom that’s been on the back burner for a while. When she goes outside she sees cameras at her and people asking for pictures. But when she comes on here she sees the people who care about her. She gets to see the impact that she has on real people’s lives. She gets to come on here and laugh and be silly with a group of people who are unlike the rest (by that I mean nuts). Her life is a bunch of abnormal circumstances, which she asked for in wanting to be a singer. But she knows those are the conditions for having the career she wants. You see, her being on here is actually amazing. She’s getting to know these people who adore her. She gets to see how much better she makes our lives. I don’t think it’s some kind of egotistical thing where she takes pride out of people “worshipping” her. She just sees what we post about our lives. She sees beyond what she gets asked in interviews, or at award shows. A lot of us have been here for years and years, some less but that’s ok, and she’s changed all of our lives for the best. Obviously it’s slim for her to be able to meet everyone on here, but it’s probably really amazing for her to see what’s going on in our lives. She sees how our day was or what friends we have. She gets to read about our struggles and triumphs and not be so secluded from the media. This was a terrifying place a year ago and I’m so glad she wasn’t on here then. But I couldn’t be happier to have her on here. I’ll admit that it was scary at first because…it’s tswift…..but it’s turned out to be the most wonderful thing. Sorry this is so long. I talk a lot.
i hope that whenever calum has his first born son his wife puts the newborn in a turtle costume and hands him over to calum and says “be careful with him hes smalla than a bug”
I’m realistic about the fact that millions of people don’t have time in their day to maintain a complex profile of who I am. They’re busy with their work and their kids and their husband or their boyfriend and their friends. They only have time to come up with about two or three adjectives to describe people in the public eye. And that’s okay. As long as those three adjectives aren’t ‘train wreck, mess, terrible.’ I figure eventually, if you hang around long enough, people will see all sides of you.
You’re going to have people who are going to say ‘Oh, you know like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends’ and I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there.
i would just like to take a moment to say that taylor swift is really smart and anyone who doesn’t get that is lame. that is all. goodnight.
I wonder if Taylor truly knows how fierce her fans were during that backlash of 2013. Like post any bullshit rumors/rude posts about Taylor on tumblr and within 2.3 seconds at least 3 fans will have found it and ripped you apart with a 1000 word essay on why you’re wrong citing 8-10 references
If I had the money I would totally do this:
This is so incredible
