I love Taylor Swift. Wow. That feels good to say.
When I say “love” I don’t mean in a romantic way. I mean that I really enjoy her music and she seems like a super rad lady. My love affair with T Swift first started after the release of her album “Fearless”. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed songs from her self titled album but they didn’t catch me like, “You Belong With Me” and “Love Story”.
I really enjoyed her music. I could dance around my room singing at the top of my lungs and never really get tired of it. So I continued to be a closeted Swifty. I didn’t really talk about my love for her music and had my parents buy her albums for me so I didn’t have to admit to buying her music.
I continued to listen to her music in secret until I started learning more about her. She is awesome with her fans. At shows she would have people walking through the crowd to invite special fans to meet her afterward. I mean WHAT? How many artists do that? I am going to guess not many.
For Christmas this year she sent fans personalized gifts. I mean really well thought out gifts with personalized notes. My friends don’t do that (hell, I don’t do that).
So my love for Taylor grew and grew. I am finally to a point where I can admit that I like her and her music, and I am willing to defend her, so back off. She has blossomed into a really kind, generous, thoughtful, funny person.
Whether you like her songs or not, I think there is no denying that she is a pretty awesome celeb.
So for now I call a toast for Miss T. Swift. She knows just how to deal with haters, how to show appreciation to her fans, and how to treat her friends. You get em’ girl.
