Now, I’m trying to figure why I enjoy this. I can think of a few reasons. For example, yesterday, by accident, I read how Taylor has given an interview to New York Magazine about some of the songs she’s written about past boyfriends. Nothing is private with this girl. Having boyfriends is an opportunity to get material for writing songs. This is her business, but I do think it’s funny.
This summer when in Walgreens, I came across Taylor Swift Designer Coke Cans. No, really I did. I guess it had some words to some of her songs on the cans—didn’t really check it out that much. Yes, I made fun of this almost every time I was in Walgreens. I would joke around with the employees requesting more Taylor Swift products. Once, I ask a clerk where I could find the Taylor Swift hotdog buns. She thought I was serious.
Still talking about Walgreens and Taylor Swift, last Christmas, Taylor was all over the store. There was even a life size cutout of her. Walgreens was selling her CDs, notebooks, posters, backpacks—you name it, they were selling it. Maybe that’s why that clerk thought they might actually have Taylor Swift hotdog buns.
Alright—enough. Taylor has talent, no doubt about it, but I’ve never come across a James Taylor candy bar or a Linda Ronstadt Coke can and these artists sing songs about past loves and I don’t know who they’re referring to and don’t need to know.
I guess I’m saying I consider Taylor Swift a bit of a sellout. I think that’s why I enjoy making fun of her.
