What Is It With Taylor Swift

I admit, I think Taylor is cute, and her music is super catchy in its country pop kind of way, but why the love affair with her?

Is it just the cuteness?

The music is nice, but it isn't very inspired. In fact, if you really start listening to Taylor's songs, you'll notice that most of them sound alike. Taylor Swift songs are all interchangable. Plus most of them are about guys that have dumped her, with few exceptions.


Bitter much, little girl?

I think Back To December is one of the only songs where she takes the blame for a relationship.


However the chorus sounds suspiciously like Love Story?

An I'm sorry song by Taylor!!

That's a novelty!

It leaves me wondering if her songwriting will develop much as she matures, or will it be the same ole same ole.

I know I've ranted about this before, but which each new single I get more and more confused. How can people think she's so fabulous when she's writing the same song over and over with different lyrics?

I think she's easy to relate to, especially considering other lady singers in the mainstream. Look at who we have: Lady Gaga, Kesha, Katy Perry, Pink, Britney Spears, Beyonce, etc. They're all full of glitz and glamor & with Taylor Swift, you feel like she's more down-to-earth.

I do think her writing will mature. She's young.

It will be nice to see if she can write about something other than failed relationships.

At least she's not constantly writing about partying & such like Kesha.
