Taylor Swift isn't bad because she's popular, she's bad because her music sucks and is fluff for teenage girls.
This is my favorite statement in the whole thread.
I don't like it, therefore the only reason it sells is because teenage girls buy fluff.
Really- so if that were true, I guess all teenage fluff records must sell a million in a week. Right.
Taylor Swift strikes a chord with her audience. Her combination of lyrics and melody move people. It is pop music with a little country thrown in.
It isn't Led Zeppelin, but for what it is, it's pretty good.
