I don't think we are arguing that at all.
I showed you where Taylor Swift received critical success. You made fun of the sources.
So what you've boiled it down to is that you've decided that since a market consists of teenage girls and lame media likes her, it is therefore not good.
Music is about taste. You don't like her. But we can't be blinded by our own taste to say that something is bad.
I don't like Metallica. I would also tell you they are the best at what they do and are pioneers. I can make that observation by looking at the people who they appeal to and realizing that that group judges them to be very good.
