We all know Taylor Swift likes to act the part of the high and mighty, and has made seemingly endless comments/bullshit speeches about what a feminist she is, despite all evidence to the contrary. It’s no surprise, then, that she got called out on Twitter over the weekend for not speaking out in support of Kesha during her terrible ordeal at the hands of Sony Music and Dr. Luke. Instead, she took to Twitter to promote her new single and stayed mum on Kesha’s very real problem even while plenty of other celebs were happy to chime in… that is, until today.
Taylor doesn’t give a rat’s ass about real feminism if it doesn’t benefit her, so she did what anyone would do: threw $250,000 Kesha’s way as a form of support during her “trying time.” Taylor hopes that the cash will help Kesha pay her legal fees and help meet her other “financial needs” for a while. This, according to Taylor’s reps, though the artist herself has still said absolutely nothing about the situation.
“In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time,” a spokesperson for Swift wrote in a statement.
If there’s one thing we’ve all learned, it’s that all problems on this planet can be solved by throwing money at it. Now Taylor probably thinks she’s beyond reproach in this situation, but it actually only serves to make her look even shittier and out of touch.
This whole story just reeks of ick factor and makes me dislike Taylor even more.
