  1. Oh great, here's exactly who we all needed to hear from about the whole debacle.

  2. How does that man have ANY fans?

    He’s literally trash talked every region of every country in the world at this point.

  3. I'm in no way defending him...but everyone, everywhere deserves a drag, tbh.

  4. Not sure why I bothered to read all of that (or indeed, any of it), but it's all very

  5. I know things have moved on but this revisionism of Blue as anything other than the gold standard of heartbreak and confessional songwriting is not the tea.
     
  6. I wouldn't even disrespect Joni by comparing the two albums. I adore Red, but Blue is one of the best works of art ever recorded.
     
  7. or at all, sksk
     
  8. I feel so torn about turning my nose up at corporations and popstars pinkwashing.
    I get the "you need to do more than just put a rainbow on your product and a drag queen in your video" thing, but ..I dunno. It just feels counter intuitive to me. Maybe cause I'm older and remember a time before. So many other minorities just don't get this kind of soft touch promotion. It has huge psychological effects on the normalization of LGBTQ people. For me..I'll take it thanks.
    I'm aware I'm probably out of step with the majority here but the toxicity and "thanks but no thanks" stuff I see on social media, leaves me cringing a bit. I get shivers. It feels sneery.

    I just remembered that on top of this album we still need to get through Cats before the end of the year.

  11. Her fans are eating güd.
     
  12. Ok I wasn't sure before but after seeing her perform the bridge of Shake It Off on that Amazon event I absolutely loathe her now. The absolute NEED to be the victim at all times while letting her fans do her dirty work is disturbing, obnoxious and repulsive. To think I used to stan so hard.......

    Taylor performing for one of the worst corporations on this planet for both worker and environmental rights-

    I just have to laugh.
     
  16. Just out of curiosity, do you purchase any items on Amazon?

    Occasionally, but I always use standard shipping. I’ve also been cutting down how much I use Amazon (my goal is to stop using them by the end of this year) and generally shifted to buying second hand items over new items. Thanks for asking. Maybe I’ll start a zero waste thread!
     
  18. Oh shit the whole point is invalid now!!

  19. Taylor wishing Ed a successful album release week on her instagram story even though he couldn’t be bothered to support her equality act petition or the post about her masters....when is she gonna cook that friendship already?

  20. Unless you have poor eye sight or reading comprehension skills nowhere did I imply that the point is invalid. I was just being observant and I noticed some (not all) people who complain about amazons unethical ways in treating their employees still manage to purchase products from amazon. I'm not a fan of Taylor Swift but I'm definitely not going to be silly and drag her for performing at an Amazon event when I can easily critique her inauthentic moves on appealing to the lgbt community with her latest music video.
