I am not the type to waste time hating celebrities, but I like to gossip sometimes and all this stuff. I have nothing better to do right now, so I want to bitch about Taylor Swift. Yeah, complain about petty things, why not? I don't like her as an artist, either, but I won't talk about that. I want to talk about her as a person.
Anyway. I don't hate her, but I am repulsed by her behavior and really dislike her persona. I didn't pay much attention to her before; I saw her as that "oh, not very interesting, cute, innocent country singer", and nothing more. But I changed my opinion recently.
She is manipulative and ruthless as fuck. Immature, disingenuous and shallow too.
Main reasons I dislike her are:
A) She uses her personal relationships for spetacle/marketing purposes. The way she exposes her ex-boyfriends on magazines, songs, Grammys etc. is ridiculous, always portraying herself as the victim in these relationships. C'mon, it is very difficult to think that all of her 9384833 ex-boyfriends were ruthless assholes, while she is this pure saint who never made a mistake during her entire love life.
B) Her fickleness. Sorry, I see the way that she jumps from one relationship to another during small periods of time as a sign of character flaws. Doesn't matter her gender; if she were a guy and did the exact same thing, I would still see this as a character flaw. I am really repulsed by this kind of excessive fickleness... I think it is one of the worst flaws someone can have, and I try to avoid this kind of person IRL as much as possible. Goddamn, how disturbing this weak lack of stability is.
C) She uses the feminist card when it is convenient to her... basically, when people criticize her and her attitude when it comes to relationships, she accuses them of sexism. But my God, she doesn't give a flying fuck about feminism, or any social issue whatsoever. She is totally self-absorbed, and only mentions feminism to defend herself and her BS. She is not genuinely concerned about raising awareness/directing people's attention to any causes. So self-serving. I'm not saying artists should stand up for causes etc; but if they do, they should be real about it.
D) The way she is greedy, money-crazed and supports this ridiculous industry. Bitching about Apple Music, Spotify and streaming services in general, claiming they don't pay artists (which is a lie). C'mon, Taylor, accept the times as they change. Not everybody is going to pay for a physical copy of your album nowadays. And I don't even understand why you are so concerned about money. You probably live in a castle, has private jets and personal servants. Why are you so desperate for more?
All in all, I think she is one of the few media personalities I actively dislike at the moment.
