Why no Interviews
This album is Taylor’s anger, power, and chance to speak up about her reputation, obviously. And she’s stayed really quiet for so long, and it’s almost as if she’s so done with the media she’s taking on that personality they label her with (with this album).
But the kicker is that she’s doing it while showing her side of things, while speaking up, while being a strong person.
That being said, this album is a whole other side to her. And as far as we’ve seen, this new side doesn’t have much of a correlation to the side of Taylor we see during press season. And if she can avoid trying to combine the two (because she’s not required to do so) I’m sure she will. I think it’s smart.
She’s working hard to create this persona with colors, sounds, looks, and her silence speaks for itself I think. So I totally understand her approach so far.
All of this being said, Taylor coming onto Tumblr shows us that the side WE know and love, the side we’ve been sticking up for and enjoying all these years, she’s showing us it still exists. It’s just muted right now.
