Am I in the minority here when I say that neither Taylor Swift nor her music do it for me? Or do the masses here at Evil Beet feel the same way? I’m not saying that she’s not a more-than-likely probably perfectly lovely girl, but this stuff? Is just not not not my cup of tea.

It hurt a little when Taylor Swift covered Mumford and Sons, but I tried to be ok with it. And then when she did the Dixie Chicks cover, I actually thought it was kind of cute. But then she did an Eminem cover. And I don’t know how to deal with these feelings.
Do we still care about Taylor Swift at all, or is she over? I feel like she broke it off with Jake Gyllenhaal and then most people over the age of 17 stopped caring about her around the same time? Or maybe that’s just my fondest wish. Confirm or deny, please!

Hey, friends! It’s been a hot minute since we last spoke, hasn’t it? And, you know, sometimes friends have to reconnect after a little time apart, and just catch up on what’s gone on in their lives. So what’s new?
Oh, me? Yeah, I’ve just been watching this video of Taylor Swift do another one of her famous covers and hating myself for thinking that she looks so adorable. Also I’m trying to stay in the present, because I don’t know if this is just for girls around my age from Tennessee or what, but I’ll be damned if this song doesn’t catapult me back to my 8th grade talent show. Every bitch who thought she had a voice wanted to do this “Cowboy Take Me Away” bullshit.
Now you tell me about you, lovelies!

Am I crazy for not thinking that Taylor Swift is all that pretty? I mean, she’s not BAD-LOOKING, by any means, nor is she even average, I guess, but I just don’t really find her all that attractive. I know she’s a moderately talented singer/songwriter and stuff, and not everyone can be a wanton sex goddess like Olivia Wilde, and it’s NOT EVEN LIKE it’s just LOOKS THAT MATTER, but Taylor Swift? I guess I’ll just pass on that, thanks.
I mean, even in this photo shoot, where she’s supposed to be all charming and whimsical and come-hither, it’s just not translating for me. Maybe my receptors are broken or something, because I just. don’t. get it. Plus, the floral theme that’s going on here totally makes me want to drown myself in Zyrtec and nasal spray.
So anyway. Here’s some excerpts from Taylor’s Vogue interview. I’m sure you’ll find them scintillating:
On really getting into her most favorite television programs:
“Detective Olivia Benson from Law & Order S.V.U. I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show. So I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs.”
On the songs that speak to her most:
“‘She’s So High’ by Tal Bachman (the sweetest song !!), ‘You Learn’ by Alanis Morissette, ‘Shot in the Dark’ by Augustana.”
On loving “princess dresses”:
“I get to wear it every night on tour at the end of the show when I’m singing ‘Love Story.’ It’s long and sparkly (big surprise, right?) and a total princess dress.”
One thing that Taylor Swift really gets going? My allergies. Seriously.

Oh hey look. It’s Taylor Swift trying to have a personality or something. No, really, it’s the two of them doing some kind of skit for the upcoming CMT Music Awards. Cute, isn’t it?
And how do we feel about Taylor Swift, anyway? Do we love her? Dislike her? Pity her?
Anyway. I know, like, you country types stick together for the most part, Taylor, but do you have any friends your own age, girl? Or a personality of your own, for that matter?
