even in the last she thinking about taylor :'(

anonymous asked:

Do you think bringing in all the different girls, is so not one of them is more prominent and easier to attach committed love songs too? Because his personal ones are about a committed relationship? I just think if he wants to keep his private life private he doesn't need Kendall and Taylor, and Tess, and Townes.

He doesn’t “have” Kendall, Taylor, Tess, and Townes. 

Kendall is a friend, has been, will be.  She’s also dating ASAP Rocky I believe, so she’s not in the picture. She wasn’t even at the gig last night.

Taylor is… Taylor. She’s written songs implying heavily that they were about him, he co-wrote one with 1D that was a Syco cash grab “reply” to 1989 that made her out to be in it for the publicity. 

And now, he’s not denying that Two Ghosts is about ANYONE (he leans towards no on Louis after a very inappropriate question. Way less firm than NOOOOOOO!!!! about Taylor, yeah?) because once he starts confirming or denying, he’ll have to answer for all of the songs. And clearly, blatantly, Harry is not looking to alienate any of his “shipper” fans which honestly, I think is nice of him.

The media is dead set on making it about Taylor because she’s the only “confirmed” ex-gf he has other than Kendall (even though he has NEVER confirmed any girlfriend). And fans are just eating that up and making it way more about her than they should be. The song mentions red lips and blue eyes, then goes on to talk about a long term relationship which clearly Taylor and Harry were not, no matter what story you believe.

Townes is a friend of a friend that agreed to pose as a background muse. She’s dating someone, she’s not claiming to have ever been anyone truly important to Harry.

And Tess?  IDK what that is, but he’s sure not trying to convince anyone of that one, no matter what Paige 2.0 is doing.

So this massive “het push” that everyone is claiming is happening, really isn’t. It’s just more het than we were expecting, so even relatively low key het trolling is grating on people like it’s something major.

But to me, we’re seeing more of who he really is than we have since 2011. 

Some of who he is is acting like a dumbass guy around other dumbass guys. Some of him is a rainbow unicorn frog baby. Some of him is an iconic artist in the making. 

And some of him is a shrewd, intelligent, ambitious man in a cutthroat business where you have to think two steps ahead of anyone else just to keep up.

We forget about that last part to our own detriment.

@i-can-hear-my-sins you were saying something?

——

“Clothes?”

“Check!”

“Movies?”

“Check!”

“Drinks and snacks?”

“Check and check, we are ready to go!”

It was Friday and that meant one thing. Movie night. Though it wasn’t so much a movie night more so a sleepover arranged by Chloe and Michael to deal with their… problems. It had started a couple of months ago when Michael spilled the beans on his crush on Jeremy after an unfortunate event during lunch. Jeremy had started to go on about this new movie coming out in the next week or so and how he wanted Michael to join him.

“Hell yeah dude! I’m totally up for a get-together next weekend!” He beamed, happy that his best friend chose him to go to the movie first instead of Christine.

“You two going on a date?” Came a voice from behind them. Michael whipped his head round to see Chloe with her lunch tray, obviously joking with the two. It didn’t stop Michael’s brain from processing the thought though, leading to a bright red face.

“Haha, no way Cloe.” Jeremy joked, completely oblivious to the fact that his best friend was burning up with embarrassment beside him. Chloe on the other hand noticed immediately. She pulled him away after class and refused to let it go until Michael had told her everything.

In hindsight, the event wasn’t so bad as Chloe told Michael about Brooke not long after and so, movie night was born. Again, it wasn’t so much a movie night. The two just called it movie night for everyone else’s benefit.

So here they were, spread out on Chloe’s bed with ‘Titanic’ playing on her TV. Chloe had managed to convince Michael to let her paint his nails, something she was very keen on doing to all those who enter her room. He had wanted rainbow nails but Chloe said that would have been too difficult, so he just went with purple.

“How’s the situation with Jer?” She questioned, continuing her art on Michael’s nails. He groaned in response.

“Don’t get me started Cloe. He’s completely oblivious! He wouldn’t notice a full on World War 3 if it hit it right in the face.”

“Have you tried-”

“Yes I tried the flirting tips you gave me. Nothing. Zilch. He just thought I was teasing him. And his stupid smile! He started laughing and smiling, his eyes lit up and- ugh!” Michael flew his arms up in the air in frustration. “It’s not fair Cloe!”

“Hey careful! You’ll smudge them,” she replied, carefully lowering Michael’s arm so she could start on the other hand.

“He’ll realise one day, the dude’s all over you. I got a phone call from Christine last Tuesday saying how horrible her date went cause he wouldn’t stop talking about you.” She giggled, thinking back to how frustrated Christine has sounded that day.

“Did she really?”

“Yeah… it was hilarious… Though I suppose I couldn’t blame her, I haven’t had much better experiences.”

“Is this about the ‘date’ with Brooke a few weeks ago?”

“Yes! Ugh don’t even get me STARTED Michael! Do you know what it’s like to sit in a cafe listening to your crush gush over some boy?! 'Oh Taylor looked so good today Chloe did you see him? He got his second piercings last week, they look amazing! I should get mine done. What do you think I would look like? Would Taylor like them? God he’s so hot and sexy and-”

“Chloe! The nails!” Micheal exclaimed. Chloe broke out of her rant and looked down to where she had apparently started to paint Michael’s finger instead of his fingernail.

She sighed, reaching for the remover. “Sorry Mike, I just couldn’t stand it. You know what I did? I stood up, and walked out. WALKED OUT! ON BROOKE! Right in the middle of her conversation with me… I feel awful but I had to do it! She started talking about what she would look like with a nose ring and I just couldn’t stop myself from imagining it…”

“Bad move.”

“Yeah tell me about it. She looked hot, like 50% hotter.. how is that even possible?” She laughed, smiling to herself as she did so. She had never really thought about it before, but it was nice to be able to do this - to have someone to talk and rant and gossip with without having to worry about what others thought about her for doing so. Michael didn’t judge, he just listened. It was relaxing.

Across the mattress, Michael was having the same thoughts. He had never really considered Chloe a friend before she found out about his secret, but he didn’t regret it for a second. Having Chloe to go to every other Friday and having her sit there quietly listening to his problems, it helped. Jeremy was the only person he could turn to the past few years but this was something he couldn’t help with, something he had to hide from his best friend. He hated it, hated keeping secrets from him. But at least he had Chloe to get him though it.

“So, what do you think?” The voice snapped Michael out of his trance. He looked up to see Chloe smiling at him, gesturing to his hands. They were painted a bright lilac, perfectly shaped and no spillage whatsoever.

Micheal sighed and smiled. “They look great, Cloe.”

The Other Side of the Ocean - Chapter 3

A Taylor & Joe fanfiction

Need to catch up? Read the prologue, Chapter 1, Chapter 2


Nashville. It’s what Taylor thinks of when someone says ‘home’. Her mom and best friend live here. It’s where she recorded her first song, created her debut album, and every single one thereafter. Nashville is the birthplace of her first kiss, first love, and first heartbreak. Braces happened here. Birthdays have come and gone, so too have anniversaries and Christmases and New Year’s, all precious memories firmly cemented in her mind.

What hasn’t happened here? The grime and filth. The lies, the made up stories, the stalking of her by paparazzi, the snarky Ed Drosteish opinions, none of that.

Nashville is safe.

She loves the people, the community, the manners, the food, the music. The lakes and the forests are her sanctuary. She enjoys going out for brunch to have her favorite sweet potato pancakes, running into people who aren’t overwhelmed by her fame or celebrity. She likes that she can have a sense of normalcy in Nashville. 

Here, she can be Taylor. She doesn’t have to be Taylor Swift every day.

No one really bugs her here, and there aren’t usually paparazzi. She can drive, and she can go places without her bodyguards sometimes, even though they always get wishy washy about that.

When she comes home, fans aren’t standing around her gate, and no one’s taking pictures through her windows. No drones are circling overhead. Her neighbors generally ignore her. Sounds weird but, she loves being ignored like that.

It’s the perfect place to spend time when you don’t really want to be noticed.

It’s really astounding to me that Katy can claim Taylor ‘started it’ when Taylor perfectly explained why she wrote bad blood.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” she says. “She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’” Then last year, the other star crossed a line. “She did something so horrible,” Swift says. “I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”

(Pressed, Swift admits there might have been a personal element to the conflict. “But I don’t think there would be any personal problem if she weren’t competitive,” she says.)“

Notice how Taylor never mentioned Katy’s name and never has. But Katy has made it her life goal to insert herself in all Taylor news. Katy keeps talking about Karma but from what I see is Taylor has had 3 hit songs, in three separate genres in 2016. While Katy struggles to enter the top 20 on iTunes with her latest 3 singles. Which all have had features. Karma is here but it sure isn’t coming for Taylor.

When It Comes to Feud Songs, Ed Sheeran Says Taylor Swift Doesn’t ‘Need’ to Be Defended
Ed Sheeran won’t be wading into the Taylor Swift/Katy Perry feud anytime soon

EXCLUSIVE • BY MARY PARK AND JORDAN RUNTAGH • JUNE 16, 2017 AT 3:30PM EDT 

Ed Sheeran won’t be wading into the Taylor Swift/Katy Perry feud anytime soon.

Perry recently made waves recently for appearing to take aim at Swift in her song “Swish Swish,” apparent retaliation for Swift’s 2014 track, “Bad Blood.”

Though close with Swift, Sheeran says he feels no need to defend his friend in song. “I don’t think she needs that at all,” the “Shape of You” singer, 26, told PEOPLE at the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame 48th Annual Induction and Awards Gala at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Thursday night.

What does the honoree of the Hal David Starlight Award think about the current trend of diss tracks? “I don’t think feud songs are a hot thing—there’s always been beef songs.” A famous example? “It’s mainly been like Carly Simon,” the British singer-songwriter said. In 2015, Simon revealed that the second verse of her legendary revenge track “You’re So Vain” is about Warren Beatty.

Was there a frenzied response when Sheeran penned and performed a musical attack? “I’ve done feud songs before but no one cares about them!” he told PEOPLE with a laugh.

Sheeran’s extra fire power might not even be necessary, because Perry, 32, has apparently squashed her beef with Swift, 27, once and for all. “I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her,” she told Thrive CEO Arianna Huffington last week. “I love her, and I want the best for her. And I think she’s a fantastic songwriter.”

anonymous asked:

I've been thinking lately about why Tay is laying low about TS6 (aside from needing a break). I feel like aside from the big events coming up for her (trial with groper-guy, Abigail's wedding), she might just not be feeling particularly inspired? I think she's stopped being mopey about breakups and is more "capable"(?) of moving on quickly now, seeing as how she broke things off with Calvin+Tom, &then found Joe. Feels like she wants to settle down & stop ppl turning her into a cliche. thoughts?

2/ i’m also kind of afraid that this means she won’t be writing (or at least, releasing songs) much about love/heartbreak anymore. i feel like everyone at this point expects her next album to address calvin, tom, kanye+kim& even katy, and she’s trying not to be predictable and be labelled as vindictive. so…i wonder if she’ll actually even release ‘breakup’ material this time (since if she wrote about those situations ppl would be up in arms saying she’s playing victim again)

I understand your concern, but have to say I don’t agree with it. Given all the things that have happened to her in the last three years, no, I don’t think she has shortage at all of things to be inspired by. 

One thing that I know people (Tay included) seem to want to shy away from is this idea that Taylor is calculating, thoughtful, strategic. Like … hell yes she is?? She’s one of the smartest hustlers in this game. Continued, consistent, meteoric success like Taylor’s is not coincidental. It’s planned. And there is nothing wrong with that. 

The thing I’ve come to learn about Taylor is she seems to be a near limitless well of business ideas on how to market herself. She constantly keeps herself interesting, intriguing, marketable, and makes people (fans, of course) want to interact with her and learn more about her and her work. When everyone expects her to do one thing, she will do another. Did anyone see “Blank Space” coming? 

Even within what you’re saying, how is the narrative of being capable of putting yourself back together faster, stronger, better than you ever have before not inspiring as hell? “Yep. That relationship fucked up. But you know what I still have? Me.” I want to listen to that song. I want to listen to a whole album of that song. 

I sincerely hope half of TS6 is Taylor’s equivalent of Beyoncé’s “Diva” or Nicki Minaj’s famous pickle juice moment. And the other half is on the introspective level of “The Lucky One” about her career thus far, the internal workings of her mind, who she is right now as a 27-year-old woman. 

Soul Mates!

DISCLAIMER: This is a soulmate AU where when you turn 21 you can hear the song your soulmate(s) has stuck in their head. By no means did I come up with this idea, and another person already made a fic like this. This is not a recreation of theirs because I have a whole new plot, and I changed it so when you turn 18 because that’s kind of a legal age in America. I DID NOT COPY THEIRS.

Paring: Poly!Hamilsquad x reader (better if female but it doesn’t matter.)

Readers POV

Two more days. Two more days until I find my soulmate. Although, I really hope that I get more than one. I have so much love and attention to give and I want to receive that much love and attention from my soulmates.

Call me an attention whore, but at least I give back. I didn’t care what gender they were, no matter how much my father suppressed me. I didn’t care what race they were either. I mean, as long as they loved me and understood me, and I loved them then all was well.

I knew my best friend

, Alexander, was looking for his. He turned 18 yesterday. “Hey Alexander.” I smiled as he walked through my door. “Remember when people knew how to knock?” I asked him. “I liVE HERE WOMAN.” He told me. “Ah,” I looked around the apartment. “So you do.” I say, still looking around. “And you live here too.” He says with no expression. “I do?!” I say like I’ve never heard of such things. “Getting real tired of your shit.” He laughed, making it so he was kidding. “And this Melanie Martinez- ah!” He groaned. Currently I was thinking about ‘Training Wheels’ by Melanie Martinez. It was probably just coincidence. “What happened?” I asked, lightly worried. “Another song just hit.” He groaned. “Aren’t you poly?” I said. “Yeah but I wish it wasn’t so loud.” He rolled his eyes. “Now it’s Halsey. This, most likely a female, woman is driving me insane. Not that I don’t like Halsey.” He lightly laughed. “Which song.” I demanded. “There’s no use crying about it, I’m heading straight for the castle. Castle. By Halsey.” He sang. “Weird. I’m thinking about that one too.” I laughed it off, but Alexander thought about it. “Sometimes I hate this system. I mean, sometimes people get their soulmates song, or they get a tattoo of their soulmates name. Or both.” He groaned, clutching his arm. He lifted up his sweatshirts sleeve on his right arm. John Hercules Lafayette Those were the names listed on his arm. “Wow. Looks like you got your wish.” I laughed, but truly I thought they were lucky. I had a crush on Alexander. I know it’s kinda late in my narrative but I thought it’s now or never. I sighed. “Are you, okay?” He asked me, noticing my expression. “Hmm? Yeah. I’m fine.” I lied. “How lucky am I to get my friends.” He smiled. I smiled with him. Devastated? Kinda. But I’d be happy. For him. ~~Two days later~~ Alexander met up with his soulmates, but I always felt like I was just in the way. So I left to my room. A burning sensation erupted on my hip. I pulled my pajama pants down a bit to see who would be mine. Four songs crashed in my head, over lapping and changing each other. I never got to look at the names. I wasn’t exactly looking forward to seeing who was my soul mate. I rubbed my head, getting out of my bed. I shuffled across the hall to my bathroom. It being 10 am, I expected their to be Alexander and his soulmates. They were here. For what it was worth, I downed an aspirin. Okay two. I opened the door to go back to bed. All I wanted to do was sleep. Sleep for days. But, Alexander stood in my way. “What do you want.” I grumbled, rolling my eyes. “You.” He plainly stated. “But I’m not your-” I started, but was cut off my Alexander shoving my waist and down. “Hey!” I shouted in protest. Until I saw those names. Alexander John Hercules Lafayette I smiled. “So I don’t have to sleep for days! Or watch my best friend be happy while I’m here stuck with whoever I got instead of you and John and herc-” I rambled. “Is that why you’ve been distant? You liked me?” He smiled. “Liked?? Psh? Me? No???” I tried to blow it off, but Alexander read me like he reads the constitution. “Because I liked you too~” He smiles, kissing me. “Aww,” and other variations come from outside Alexander. “I never formally introduced myself. I’m-” I start, introducing myself. “We already know everything about you.” John says, rolling his eyes. “Perfect,” Laf mimics Alexander. “Smart.” John says. “Extraordinary.” Hercules uses vast hand motions. Alexander blushes. I laughed. “Okay so that explains the light Halsey, Melanie Martinez, and Lady Gaga playing in and out yesterday.” John says, smiling. “Don’t forget the Lana Del Rey.” Laf smiled. “Is that all you listen too?” Alexander asks. “Well I’m sorry if I like songs like that.” I crossed my arms, smiling. “Is all you listen to Ed Sheeran?” I blurt out, even though I love Ed Sheeran. “Well I’m sorry if I like his songs.” Laf defends. “And who is thinking about Taylor Swift?” Alexander asks. “Sorry.” Hercules, the last one I would’ve thought of, says apologetically. “Shocking.” I say. “Alright enough of-” I start to say but get cut off by John. “Private show. Brittney spears. Probably you.” He says in butchered sentences. I blush from embarrassment. “Fun fact: She used to be a stripper.” Alexander states, looking at me. “Alexander!” I yell. “What?!” Everyone is shocked. “My dad wouldn’t give me money so what else was I supposed to do? Wash dishes and butcher my nails? No thank you.” I say. “Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going back to bed.” I push my way through the boys and into my room. “Can we come?” I hear through the door. I sigh. “You sure?” I ask. A chorus of ‘yes’ and 'yes please.’ Echo. “Whoever said 'yes please’ can lay next to me because they have good manners.” I say and I hear John yell 'yes’. —- A/N: there will definitely be a part two because 1) it was so short and 2) because I loved this one. Possibly a part three if it goes well. Thanks for reading~ ~A

The Edge of the Night

She wasn’t sure why it had come to a head at 1:17 AM on the last day of July, but that’s when it happened.

Tom didn’t know why he’d woken up, but even in the dark he knew right away that Taylor wasn’t in the bed alongside him.  He pulled on a t-shirt and left the bedroom, walking down and finding her in the den, curled up on the corner of the couch, surrounded by darkness.

“Hey,” he said softly when he entered the room.  He didn’t want to startle her. “Whats wrong?”  He sat down beside her and rested a hand on her back.

“I can’t do it, I’m sorry,” she said, turning away, tears streaming down her face. “I can’t go back with you. It’s too much.” She stood and walked to the other side of the room and looked out the window at the pitch black backyard. “I’m sorry.”

I'm sorry but KP is the biggest dumbass. I would never go against an artist that has the biggest fandom in the US. I'm like B**ch Taylor never uttered your name. You inserted yourself in her narrative Thinking it was going to backfire on her. Look whose 3 singles has sold a total of 500k when your last album singles sold 12 mil.

It just shows that no matter what things may seem like on SM, most people don’t even care about this one sided feud. If they did, her sales would be higher. I always said fans would buy Taylor’s music no matter what, but if she put out trash after trash, eventually her sales would go down. That’s the difference between Taylor and KP, while people will say what they want about Taylor music, whether it’s only about boys or drama or whatever, it’s still quality music, and in the end that’s ultimately what wins.

anonymous asked:

Jeannine I hope taylor posts tomorrow do you think she will

yeah i was talking about this with a friend week before last and i think it is possible she will post something but my thoughts on that were there following:
(1) picture of meredith or olivia with something relating to a flag/fourth
(2) picture of Ed or Austin or even her dad because they are safe and dont represent Hollywood or squad or anything that people give her shit for 
(3) picture of something pertaining to the fourth but not anything showy offy. A flag or fireworks or sunset or her desserts or even her own silhouette watching the fireworks or overlooking the ocean. 

With a caption to the effect of Happy 4th.

but she may not post anything either. I dont see some big “return” that she is gearing up to necessarily, if that was the case she would not have posted for haim and lorde’s singles…  i think she is just doin what she wants to do tbqh. Which is just living quietly the way she wants to. Which seriously is amazing, i am so happy for her, she must have just been lovin this down time to just exist with out all the interference. 

Worm Liveblog #29

UPDATE 29: Dad Hebert Puts His Foot Down

Last time, Taylor had found out Coil was the anonymous boss and heard all about his plans. He’s going to take over Brockton Bay with insidious plans and carefully planned actions. Will the Undersiders take part of it? That’s the question here. Let’s continue.

True to her plans, Taylor decides she’s going to give information, but not to Armsmaster. It’d be to Miss Militia. I remember she had said something like that before, yeah. Should this letter start with ‘Dear’? No, I think that’s too familiar. A mere ‘good evening’ may be good enough. The salutation doesn’t matter much here; what matters is to get the letter to her hands.

I don’t think the heroes receive their mail without it being screened first. Odds are someone else reads her mail, I think. An assistant, a bureaucrat, someone. In that case, I think the odds of Taylor’s letter getting to her hands aren’t too high. Someone reading it – even Miss Militia herself – may think this is a prank, or something not worth listening to. This isn’t going to be as simple as sending a letter.

Miss Militia, you know me as Skitter, but you don’t truly know me…

Yeah, that’s not the best tone? Sounds like the start of a ‘misunderstood villain’ monologue. And while Taylor does have some measure of being a misunderstood villain, I don’t think Miss Militia would welcome it. Especially after getting humiliated.

…You see, I’m not a villain, despite…

Despite throwing seven hundred hornets on Armsmaster? Despite being a villain team? Despite, you know, covering a dozen heroes with foam? The hole you dug for yourself is quite deep, Taylor. Reconsider your approach. Think other ways to start that letter.

Do you think Hayley's friendship with Taylor made her realise how bad the quality of men she was focusing on with was, also I mean no offence with this! But like he helped her realise how toxic certain things were, validating her emotions?

i feel like he’s done something. i mean even tho she married ogre still, mid-late last year she started acting different about it and still this year she is and i think writing them songs and probs having T there through so much of it, he gonna have said something or done something that has influenced her in some way, considering how close they are, and especially bc he was super vulnerable during the self titled era at a time and she kept tryna make him pick himself up and he didn’t want that, i feel like when she finally realised how sad she was and all the bs that was happening all at once, i agree he probably did validate her emotions letting her know she can just be sad if that’s how she feels, be angry, be all them things and doesnt need to put on a fake smile. 

There will always be something hauntingly beautiful about the final words on 1989 being “I think I am finally clean.” There too is something deeply thoughtful in ending Red with “I watched it begin again,” and something so unequivocally special about Speak Now coming together as a perfect whole with the line “One day, we will be remembered.” Taylor’s wisdom allows her to capture even the most intricate of details in such an ethereal, poignant and iconic way.

It was a medal storm cause everything was so over the top from the amount of people at the party to going out to the beach middle of the day on the 4th (and Tom in that tank) to hiddleswift of course was gonna be crazy esp cause paps were right there. Taylor fed so much to paps last summer on purpose when she didn't have to tbh even if any of her friends go or are there I doubt we'll know about it this year.

i think they’ll stay super lowkey and we MIGHT get instas. it’s sad cuz i think the party could’ve been a great return for her to social media but it’s shitty timing lol

i hope todrick goes and the rerecord colors of the wind so i can die happy

An Analysis of the Out Of The Woods music video

So I keep seeing a lot of people saying they don’t get Out Of The Woods and I thought I would try and offer some sort of insight into what I think the video means and is getting at.

At the beginning of the video, we have Taylor staring out into the sea, accompanied by the words “She lost him”. When we see these two together, it’s a way of showing Taylor is lost at the beginning of the video-staring off pensively into the distance is a common trope used when a character is meant to be in deep thought. Then we see the trees starting to grow up around her, sending her into ‘the woods’, as mentioned in the song. The woods here however are kind of a representation of everything Taylor is going to have to go through now she’s lost ‘him’. We see the forest quickly growing up around her as she’s singing the first verse, showing her growing fears and anxieties now that she’s lost someone who was so integral to her life.

When the first chorus comes in, we see Taylor surrounded by darkness and being chased by wolves, with the woods continually growing around her and even ripping off parts of her dress. This shows that as she comes to the realisation that this guy is no longer in her life, she’s losing parts of herself. I think the wolves are representative of the memories she has of him; she’s desperate to get away from them when the loss is still so raw and fresh. Again, we have the wolves pulling at her dress and ripping it, further reflecting her losing parts of herself.

As the second verse begins, Taylor is thrown into a wintery setting, obviously tying in well with the line about “last December”. She’s also shown here with the wolves again, showing that the memories of him are continuing to follow her around. However, this time the wolves seem a lot less vicious and aren’t trying to get at Taylor the way they were before, suggesting that perhaps she’s coming to terms with her loss more and more. The wintery setting is incredibly barren and isolated, suggesting that Taylor has reached a point where she feels lonely or isolated from people following the break up-this could be trying to show that she feels no one really can relate to what she’s going through or understand it. We then see her on a cliff, looking over it into the sea before taking the leap and jumping off. Whilst this obviously ties in with the line “two paper airplanes flying, flying”, it’s also symbolic, as if Taylor is about to make a big change to her life in order to escape ‘the wolves’, or rather the memories she has of him.

In the second chorus, we see Taylor plunge into the sea, almost drowning. Taylor has said that she feels Out Of The Woods is the song that best represents 1989 and ties together the record, and I think that can be seen here. The descent into the ocean fits thematically with the ideas represented in Clean of water washing away memories of a relationship; as Taylor is in the water, she’s no longer being pursued by the wolves which represent her memories. We then suddenly see Taylor dropped into a barren wasteland, perhaps representing the emptiness she feels as she begins to get over him. She’s then shown in another icy setting, but this one is much harsher and dangerous and we see that she’s frozen. This ties back to the idea of her feeling isolated and seems to relate to the emptiness shown through the barren wasteland. We start to see an avalanche taking down trees, showing that as she’s starting to get over this loss, her fears and anxieties are beginning to be knocked back.

During the (glorious) bridge, we see Taylor covered in mud crawling through a puddle whilst a storm goes on around her. This shows she’s in the middle of her hardship or in the eye of the storm, again seeming to relate back to the ideas represented in Clean. Trees start to grow up around Taylor now, showing that whilst she’s in the middle of dealing with everything and getting over this guy, her fears and anxieties are becoming all-consuming and taking over her. She starts to become a tree herself, showing that she’s beginning to give in to the way she feels.

When she sings the line “I remember” however, we see her breaking free of the tree and thus breaking free of her fears. She’s once again going through various environments, representing the mess of emotions she’s feeling once she’s realised she doesn’t have to give in to her anxiety and seemingly once she’s realised that she can’t escape from the memories she has of this guy and that, actually, he was a significant part of her life and has affected her. She’s shown beginning to adapt to the environments she’s in, as shown when she starts to stand up and look around her. This shows that she’s starting to get in control of her feelings and thus feels like she’s gaining some control back over her life. Most significantly, she’s shown sitting at the front of the pack of wolves, the branches of the tree that surrounded her slowly creeping away. This shows she no longer feels like the memories are attacking her and making her lose parts of herself but instead are part of her that she shouldn’t try to escape from and that she can control all the fears she had when she lost him.

Finally, we see her walking out of the woods, as the woods themselves shrink away to nothingness. Taylor has finally gotten rid of all the fears and anxieties that plagued her following the break up. As she walks away from them, she spots her old self standing there and she approaches her. She’s not the same person she was before the break up-she’s certainly showing signs of what she went through, but because she’s been to hell and back from this loss, she’s finally been able to find the person she was, but has also lived through all her experiences which have helped shape who she is now. This is reflected when we see the words “she lost him but she found herself and somehow that was everything” appear on the screen, showing that even though she lost him, everything she’s been through and all of her experiences have helped her find who she was truly meant to be.

I know this was a really long post but this is just how I interpreted everything in the video and I hope this will help some of you who have been feeling confused about the video and the way it jumps about. It’s personally my favourite video of this era and I think it was a really good choice for what is most likely the final single from 1989.

Friends

Part 1

‘My place after the show? Don’t feel like going to the after parties.’ The message read on her phone screen as she sat in her seat during commercial break. It was from Adam, she scanned the room in search of him, smiling when she found him. He waved and she chuckling before answering to his text.

'Sure! Meet you there?’ She responded then locked her phone, looking at him while he nodded at her with a smile. The show came back on and their attention stopped being on each other and on the show happening.

It had been about a year since they broke up but they were friends, very good friends. It was more than Taylor could ever imagine they would be after the break up but they had talked to each other so often after the day they broke it off, they remained friends. Turns out neither of them could cut off all contact with each other. They had become so intertwined with each other’s lives, it was impossible to cut all ties they had. So they remained friends and Taylor didn’t really think about the break up anymore, it was more like a glitch and she thought that maybe they were never meant to be lovers. And she valued their friendship more than anything. After all, Adam knew her well. He knew things about her that no one else did and she knew things about him that no one else did. They knew how to deal with each other even if in the last few months of their relationship, they didn’t know how.

'Where are you?’ Adam sent her the text just as she was arriving at his house.

'Right outside. Open the gate.’ She responded and he did. Her driver drove her up to the front door and she stepped out, telling him she would call when she was ready to leave which wouldn’t be for a while.

“Hey.” He smiled, opening the door, giving her a quick hug before stepping aside so she could come in.

“Hey.” She ditched her heels, putting them next to the door. “Ugh god, I’ve been waiting for that the whole night. Remind me again why the hell I wear heels?”

“They say it makes your legs look good.” He chuckled, walking to the living room, following her. She plopped on the couch and he sat next to her. “I’m surprised you didn’t go to the after parties.” He noted and she shrugged.

“Didn’t feel like drinking and talking to hundreds of people.” He nodded his head at her answer and they sat in contented silence. “I’m kinda starting to hate award shows.”

“Why? Didn’t you like them?”

“I mean yeah but two hours of bullshit is starting to get a little tiring. It’s like everybody’s waiting to see someone fall and then they kiss your ass like they love you more than anything.” She huffed, rolling her eyes.

“I feel you but hey at least you’re winning all the awards.” He smiled at her. “Anyway, how about you pick a movie and I’ll go make popcorn?” She nodded her head and he ran off to the kitchen. She smiled. She was glad to have him in her life. She didn’t know what she would have done if they had a bad break up. For one she wouldn’t be standing at his house a year later and they wouldn’t have been talking. “Um…Tay can you come here?” She heard his voice after a loud crash and walked to the kitchen. She let out a soft laugh when she saw their popcorn on the floor and Roy on top of the counter.

“What the hell happened?”

“I stepped on Roy and everything fell.” He laughed, picking up Roy and setting him on the floor. The cat ran to Taylor and she picked him up in her arms, kissing its head. “Are we good with ice cream?”

“Yeah, we’re good.” She smiled.

“Alright, I’ll be right there, I’m just gonna clean this up.” She nodded and walked back to the living room with Roy in her arms and sat down again, with the cat snuggling in her lap. He came back, handing her a bowl of ice cream. The movie started and they both got into it. Adam glanced at Roy comfortably laying in Taylor’s lap and smiled softly. She was the one who got him the cat and he couldn’t really imagine his life without the little ball of fur although the cat probably liked Taylor more than it liked him.

“Do you want to go outside? The weather’s nice.” Adam suggested, looking out the window. Taylor jumped up and they walked together to the two chairs overlooking the city of Los Angeles. They sat in a comfortable silence, enjoying the quiet night. “Why are we single?”

“What?” Taylor let out a chuckle, glancing at Adam with her eyebrows furrowed.

“I mean, we’re both awesome and we both have no one.”

“Adam, I know the answer for me. It’s because I don’t want anyone. I’m fine with being single.” She rolled her eyes.

“But don’t you think it would be cool to date again? I haven’t dated anyone since us and you haven’t either.” He pointed out.

“I don’t know…” She trailed off. “Why are we having this conversation?” She giggled.

“Because I could be like your wingman.” She looked at him like he was crazy.

“I have never heard something more stupid.” She shook her head, laughing softly. “And besides I don’t need a wingman to get a guy. I can perfectly do it on my own.”

“Trust me I know. Been there, done that.” She punched his arm playfully, rolling her eyes at him. “Anyway what I’m saying is we could try to date new people.” He smiled like his idea was the best. “The Brits are next week and we’re both going…” He was cut off by her voice.

“May I remind you that the last time I got together with someone at the Brits, we broke up.” A smirk made its way to her face.

“Yeah but you did make some amazing memories and he’s still in your life.” He winked, grinning. “You know, after we broke up I really missed you.” He confessed and she smiled.

“Me too. I’m glad we can be friends.”

“So Brits next week?”

“You will not be my wingman!” She pointed her finger at him.

“Alright. But can we agree to start dating again?”

“Why is this such a big deal?” She stared at him.

“I don’t know!” He laughed. “At the Brits?”

“Fine, whatever.”

We don’t speak enough about the fact Taylor was able to perfectly capture the line “took off faster than a green light, go” through an almost chaotic, vibrant intensity in Holy Ground. She echoed the underpinning nature of a relationship that seemingly had an electrifying air to it while it lasted, and in three minutes was able to lace together the notion of blissfully being caught up within the whirlwind beauty of the exhilarating emotions she felt. She has a way of illustrating all aspects of nostalgia so poetically.

1989 lyrics

Ok, I have been thinking about this for a while now so I need to write it down and maybe get your opinions as well..

Recently I have listened to 1989 again..and read the lyrics carefully..And i noticed some patterns.
Now i don’t have things figured out yet..its all kinda twisted. but here are some of my observations.
I would love if you guys would add up your own and also your opinion/theory/interpretation because more brains are sure more useful than mine :D

The songs that i took into considerations are:“Out Of the Woods” , “How You Get The Girl”, “Style”, “This Love”, “Wildest Dreams” and “I Know Places”

And the reason is because I think somehow, these songs are connected…they follow certain patterns that are similar, or they present similar images, ideas.
Basically they seem to be talking about the same thing/person/relationship

First of all the idea of a break in a relationship, of a “drought”, a certain period of time when Taylor and whoever is she singing about were apart.
In OOTW we have:“..Last December” “we were built to fall apart and fall back together”
in HYGTG :“ say, its been a long 6 months”
Style “It’s been a while since I have even heard from you”
This LoveSkies grew darker, currents swept you out again”

Then you have the idea of the relationship being doomed to fail and its mostly in OOTW and Wildest Dreams that we hear about it:
“We were built to fall apart and fall back together”
“nothing lasts forever, but this is gonna take me down”
“I can see the end when it begins”

The fear that makes you run away
“and you were too afraid to tell her what you want” - HTGTG
“but the monsters turned out to be just trees” - OOTW
“when you’re young you just run” - This Love

also from the general themes of HYGTG and This Love we get that this relationship is back on track now.
“This hands had to let it go free, but this love came back to me”

Similar images, ideas from various songs.
your kiss, my cheek, i watched you leave” - This Love
“remind her how it used to be with pictures in frames, of kisses on cheek” - HYGTG
Red lips and rosy cheeks” - Wildest Dreams

these hands had to let it go free” - This Love
I walked out and said ‘I’m setting you free’ ”- OOTW

“losing grip, sinking shipsthis love
“loose lips sink ships all the damn time” . IKP

“lets drive out of the city, away from the crowds” “I said 'No one has to know what we do’ - Wildest Dreams
"i know places we won’t be found” “i know places we can hide” - IKP

“tell her how you must have lost your mind, when you left her all alone and never told her why” - HYGTG
“when you are young you just run but you come back to what you need” - This Love

also in This Love there’s a direct reference to WD “In wildest dreams, I’ve never dreamed of this”.

The song by themselves can also form a certain “timeline” like stages of a relationship

Wildest Dreams
then a break
Out Of The Woods
and then slowly the relationship gets back on track
Style
This Love
How You Get The Girl
I Know Places

bonus:
You Are In Love

now I also have a part II. because there’s also other songs on 1989…and those songs seem to share similar patterns as well.

I’m talking about “All You Had To Do Was Stay” “I Wish You Would” and “Wonderland”

AYHTDWS is clearly a break up song. And from reading the lyrics, it looks like an “angry stage” of the break up kind of song. You know, like the beginning stages,where you are blaming your ex partner.

I wish You Would seems like the next stage of the break up, where the anger is slowly replaced by the feeling of missing that person.
“Miss you too much to be mad anymore”.

while Wonderland is like the final retrospective of that past relationship. Like a general view of what happened (where you can still sense the blaming parts
“i should have slept with one eye open at night”)

bonus:

“this mad mad love makes you come running..to stand back where you stood”
“it’s all fun and games till somebody loses their mind
“and in the end in wonderland we both went mad”

This songs seem to be different from the other ones tho..like they have a different vibe and they seem to tell a story of their own. A story that is different from the one presented in the other songs.
Almost like they are about someone else. Almost like they are about two different relationships and two different people.


DISCLAIMER:Now I want to say something before people start jumping at conclusions or judge me: I AM NOT TRYING TO PROVE OR DEMONSTRATE ANYTHING. This posts simply gathers my observations in regard to 1989. It is not a theory nor am i trying to imply anything.
I just want to understand if I am the only one who got these vibes or not.

Why Style is Haylor AF (ASDFGHJKL)

Next to “Out of the Woods”, this is one of the most obvious Haylor songs with the most obvious references you can ever dream of. I will (try) to show all of them.

Midnight, you come and pick me up, no headlights
Long drive, could end in burning flames or paradise

Harry comes to pick Taylor up secretively in the middle of the night. The “midnight” and “no headlights” emphasis how they wanted to hide their relationship especially with the media constantly on their tails. It also represents how their love exists in the dark without the paparazzi’s flashing lights. The second line is similar to “Blank Space” with the line of “So it’s gonna be forever/ or it’s gonna go down in flames”. “Long drive” allures to the journey of their relationship to which the followup is parallel towards how this relationship could take a turn for worse or for better.

On the humorous side of things, I wonder if “burning flames” equals car crash thus car on fire. I mean, they are driving at midnight without headlights. #recklessdriving

Fade into view, oh
It’s been a while since I have even heard from you
Heard from you

Haylor has supposedly broken up, which highlights that Harry has seemingly faded out of her view, but still in a distant vision. They haven’t spoken to each other in a while, and now he is reaching back out, reappearing into her life again.

I should just tell you to leave
Cause I know exactly where it leads
But I watch us go round and round each time

Haylor is a cycle of mad love. They’d have random fights yet still reunite back together. Taylor knows what is expected of this on-off relationship, and that is for it to come to its indisputable end. However, she just can’t bring herself to tell Harry to go away, so it ends up being this tape on replay for the whole time. Maybe a part of her would be curious as to what each split/make-up would bring, for an example, would they last this time around? Like Taylor said, “love’s a ruthless game unless you play it good and right”.

You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

This is a throwback to around the 50′s and 60′s. Harry is pretty much an echo of the James Dean package such as that he sports the smug smirk on his face. Meanwhile, Taylor is like the popular woman’s trend back in the day wearing her signature red lip look. The two of them are basically following the old-school styles.

Other than the not-so-subtle Style reference of Harry by dropping the “s” at the end, the last two lines correspond to the whole of “we fight”, “we breakup”, “we get back together”, also linking to “Out of the Woods” with the line of “we were built to fall apart/then fall back together”. It’s an overall rocky relationship that isn’t full of stability, but they find something in each other that just draws them together, it may be a powerful connection or undeniable chemistry and attraction. With the last line, Taylor suggests that while certain trends do disappear over time, their relationship is similar to those trends that are still timeless and absolutely unmissable.

Before I was joking about the “car crash”, but now if you think about it, James Dean passed away at the peak of his career in an accident. Taylor could mean that Haylor was bound to break down and burst into flames as a means of their crazy exhilarating ride of an relationship.

You got that long hair slicked back, white t-shirt
And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt

Taylor keeps on contrasting the good girl and the bad boy imagery throughout the chorus. James Dean has been perceived widely by audiences to be the classic bad boy with his level of charm and irresistible quality. Please do note that although James Dean is seen to be a bad boy, he has his class and elegance in which his demeanor is seemed to be more captivating an intriguing. In this context, Harry was Taylor’s James Dean where she just can’t help herself to be tempted by his nature. Every good girl wants to tame the bad boy for him to be good for her. Entering this relationship, even though the forecast of breaking up remained clear to her, it was still a mystery for her to explore. Like most of the romance fiction books I pore over, typical well-behaved good girls cannot resist or push the luring bad boy away. 

I do want to just raise the idea of “tight little skirt”. 1989 is a more mature and grownup album compared to her older ones by introducing the naughty side of Taylor Swift. Although in the Speak Now album consisting of the song “Sparks Fly”, there was some hints of sexual activity, but I’ll leave that for another day. Anyway. this prompts thoughts of whether she was dressed to impress and reinforces the sexual attraction between them.

So it goes, he can’t keep his wild eyes on the road

What a rebel of a man you are Harry. There are many responses to this. Now, the media likes to portray Harry as the womanizer and complete flirt with a wandering eye. Personally we would see him for much more than that (I have high respect for him on his feminist views), just like how we see Taylor for more than the image of a psychotic girl who loves to date and torment boyfriends or pen another breakup song every chance she receives. I don’t know if Harry can’t focus properly on the road because he’s too busy admiring Taylor. But metaphorically speaking, it’s still a risky act without precautions (because your damn car can crash) which is their relationship of a doomed conclusion. In another sense, Harry could live up to his playboy view of checking out girls and flirting up a storm by not concentrating solely on one thing.

Takes me home, lights are off he’s taking off his coat

The lights being off provides this ominous undertone of something happening soon. This song is getting pretty darn sexual. But “taking off his coat” could mean two things, the most blatant one to put it bluntly, engage in some sexual encounter - or PG level of take off your coat when you arrive at someone’s house ready for a heart-to-heart conversation.

If we dive really deep into the other meanings of just this one simple line, “taking off his coat” is shedding off layers and baring his body. Harry could be finally free to uncover his feelings to Taylor after stripping down the extra skin. In other words, there’s nothing to cover him up anymore to prevent him from revealing himself. Now, if the lights are off, eventually they are going to have to be turned on again. The current situation could ideally represent that Taylor’s in the dark about what Harry’s going to do next. If the lights are switched back on, this is Harry’s small flicker of light of a confession. It symbolises a change of heart perhaps of how they aren’t together and that he wants her back.

No idea if the light ever went back on with Harry in the scene because Taylor interrupts with the next line:

I say “I’ve heard - oh, that you’ve been out and about with some other girl, some other girl”
He says “What you heard is true but I
Can’t stop thinking about you and I”
I said “I’ve been there too a few times”

Here we go, back to the events of Harry kissing a model named Emma Ostilly down under. Helpful reminder of the fact that Haylor met each other at the Kids Choice Awards and probably texted each other back and forth flirtatiously after that. That was the early Haylor relationship stance. But that went to a halt when these rumours of him cheating circulated. In my Haylor research, it’s claimed that Harry did send Taylor a message to warn her about the pictures but Taylor broke it off not wanting to get hurt again. Does this reference the scandal? I think it does.

By the way, the second last line of “You and I” makes me think about One Direction’s song of the exact name. In it there was a line I remember of “not even the Gods above/ can separate the two of us”. I like the sound of the exclusivity Harry is proposing. In “Style”, Harry may as well stress the strength of their relationship and how they’re meant for each other.

The last line is open for interpretation.There’s the possibility of throwing the idea of Taylor hanging out with another guy but “can’t stop thinking about you and I” as well. So she did the same thing Harry did, spend time with someone else. She did enter a summer fling with Conor Kennedy after the fiasco of Harry. Maybe it was a cheating on herself kind of circumstance where she kept denying her feelings for Harry. Or perhaps the line is directed of Taylor seeing that as in the many relationships she has entered, maybe she has heard the then boyfriend say this line to many times.

Take me home
Just take me home
Just take me home

I’m conflicted as to what the bridge is truly trying to pass. It’s rather ambiguous because we don’t know for sure. I think Taylor probably did this on purpose to lead our imaginations stray for future possibilities.

Because here is something from Taylor about this song:

“This song is about those relationships that are never really done. You always kind of have that person, that one person who you feel might interrupt your wedding and be like, ‘Don’t do it cause we’re not over yet’. I think everybody has that one person who kind of floats in and out of their life, and the narrative is never truly over.”  

This is a demonstration of Taylor declaring their story is still not done is still being written. Which is beautiful and inspiring, because now I’d LOVE to see Harry crash Taylor’s wedding.


Secret message of this track: “her heart belonged to someone who couldn’t stay”.

Can both sides of the party make a physical move to reach out for each other instead of just communicating through song lyrics?

Hello. I’m here to talk to you about a very important issue.

3 years ago Taylor did an interview for Rolling Stone. It’s a really great interview, you should read it, but one thing Taylor said really hit me.
She talked about having kids, and then talked about a nightmare she has:

“I have a kid and the paparazzi is taking pictures, and it’s scaring my baby. And I know that I caused it, and I can’t figure out how to stop it” 

This was the day I realized how horrible the paparazzi is and the day I stopped reblogging or posting candids (we’ll talk about that later), but after Taylor liked @whit-tay13‘s post I decided it’s time for me to speak up.

Let’s look at 2 pictures I found from the last month.

You can CLEARLY see how much she hates the paparazzi in the first picture. I mean, this intense stare can kill a man.
It’s less obvious in the second one, but after I showed it to a couple friends of mine who know Taylor as good as I do, they agreed that you can see she’s annoyed by this whole situation, and I’m sure you can see it as well.

And these are even worse.

She needs to hide behind umbrellas and bags. Try imagining how it feels for her. This was taken when she was with Selena (you all remember the harness). All she wanted to do was to spend some time with her friend and instead she needs to hide behind her purse. It’s just horrible. And of course there was this one time that she hiked a whole trail backwards just to avoid the paparazzi.

And lets not forget about these videos!
This is just crazy. They follow her to HER OWN HOUSE. This violates her privacy in so many ways.
The hike one wasn’t the only time Taylor walked backwards to avoid the paparazzi. There’s this video where she walked backwards again. 
I think this one is the worst. All she tried to do was have a nice lunch with her friend, but instead there were paparazzi photographing and documenting her every movement. And her response just says it all. In the end of the video, when she notices the paps, and you can see in her face how annoyed and frustrated she was.

And I’m not even done yet.

Let’s talk about this one. I trust Calvin and I trust his driving skills. If Taylor does, who am I to judge? But when you’re being followed by a camera crew, you can’t help but being distracted from driving, even just a little. You drive faster and recklessly, Taylor said it herself a few months ago. And you can see that they noticed the paps, because Taylor is pointing right at the camera. Taylor’s safety is more important to me than anything.

This is the last one I want to talk about:

Taylor took The 1989 World Tour crew to a vacation, and all she wanted to do was have fun, and she couldn’t even leave her room because of the paparazzi. Again, think about how this might feel for her. Imagine going on a vacation in a beautiful island and not being able to leave the room. I feel so bad for her.

Now let’s talk about the real question-

What can we do to stop it?

The answer is that I don’t know. I have absolutely no idea. The paps get their money from selling the pictures they take to entertainment websites, and there’s nothing we can do about that. But there might be something we can do to make Taylor feel better, and this is the part where I’m going to talk about not reblogging or posting paparazzi pictures.

I don’t know about you but for me, posting those pictures feels like supporting the photographers, giving them my approval to keep doing that. And even the thought of supporting someone who makes Taylor feel this way disgusts me. I never talked to Taylor, and I don’t know if it would actually make her feel better, I’m just guessing. But I can tell you from experience, it makes me feel better to know that I don’t support them, and over the course of the last 3 years, it happened only a couple of times that I wanted to reblog something and didn’t because the post had paparazzi pictures.

Now it’s time for you to make your own decision. Either you do the same thing I did, and stop posting those pictures and supporting the paps, or you keep doing it, which is fine as well. This is your decision. But please, just think about it. And I would appreciate it a lot if you can reblog this so other people can see and make this decision as well.

Thank you for your time.
