it's really annoying that people are criticizing taylor for writing for 50sog, like why does everyone have to come after her for everything? they can't just enjoy the song god what does it matter what movie it's from
it matters because she’s attaching her name to a franchise that romanticizes abuse. there are abuse survivors in this fandom and i really can’t believe that y’all are gonna criticize THEM for being somewhat disappointed that their idol is inadvertently supporting a franchise that normalizes abuse…. i don’t think taylor knows really the extent of what goes on in the books or movies, i don’t know if she’s read them or seen the first movie, i don’t know that she even took the time to look into it at all before selling them the song, but i think as an artist that’s your responsibility to make sure you’re not supporting something that you wouldn’t normally. she’s donated to domestic abuse charities if i’m not mistaken so i don’t think this is something she would take lightly had she known, that said i’m still holding her somewhat accountable.
the song is great. i’m really happy that we have new music. but i wish someone had tried to educate her before letting her do this and i wish she had taken responsibility for doing the research herself before making the deal.
