Lara Marie Schoenhals somehow managed to perfectly capture Taylor Swift’s optimistic ignorance.
As much as we all love Taylor Swift, it’s painfully obvious she lives in an unrealistic dreamland.
Want proof? Have you ever listened to “Welcome to New York”? Good, well, have you ever BEEN to New York? Taylor Swift’s New York and actual New York are two completely different things.
Take these lyrics, for example:
Welcome to New York. It’s been waiting for you.
New York has NOT been waiting for you. In fact, aside from Times Square, New York actively tries to keep tourists away.
There are maybe eight safe blocks to walk on in all five boroughs, and I'm not even talking about blocks that have police precincts on them. Somehow, those always seem a little more dangerous.
Taylor Swift views the deep, dark world we live in through a rhinestone-covered kaleidoscope only she has access to.
Taylor Swift’s brand is positive and full of strong female energy, no matter the circumstances, even, as this ridiculously funny video shows, when she’s forced to introduce some less-than-appropriate guests to her stage.
I would love to see Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan reunite. If anyone has that power, it’s Taylor Swift.
