  • ((they were not ready for it))

just so y’all know, reputation is really not like anything taylor has done before. i know this has been continuously rehashed but i dont you really understand just how different this album is. it’s raw but it different type of raw and well deserving of so much love and care. taylor is incredibly proud of it and yeah, she’s proud of all of her music when she puts it out (otherwise it wouldnt be dropped) but there’s something kind of divergent about the pride she has for this one because it’s like she knows she’s done something incredible but…….she got to be SUCH an artist with this one. cherish and protect this album with everything fam. 

New Years Day™ made everyone cry but I’ll never forget how much it didn’t made Taylor cry. Ohhhh no. She was just watching us cry at a piece of delicate beautiful art she’d made and it just made her grin 1) cuz she’s in love, duh, but 2) like a creative evil genius because that was obviously the reaction she most wanted and just looked at us all completely teetering on the edge of sanity all like. ’ ’#mission accomplished’ 👏🏼 ‘fa la la la i cant wait to kill them all like this ’ 👏🏼 'aw look at them I’m so pleased I should feel bad but THEY LIKE THE SONG SO’ 😂♥

Damn, Taylor is really milking the whole play the victim thing this time around. But then again, should I really be surprised?

We met her and genuinely she is one of the loveliest people we have ever met — so down to earth and just the nicest person ever. ” Jesy Nelson told us. “And would literally do anything for you.“ “I had no shoes,” Perrie recalled. “We thought, ’Oh we would rock up in heels.’ Little did I realize I’m like Bambi on ice when I wear heels so I was like ’Oh I need some shoes and she was like, ’Wait a minute,’ she went to her wardrobe, brought back a basket full of boots, heels, shoes, everything and was like, ’Is this OK?’ And I was thinking, she is so nice. She didn’t have to do that. She’s just so genuine. You don’t realize until you meet her and you’re like holy crap how does she stay so on top and so nice and so genuine? She’s really, really lovely.” [On advice Taylor gave them] “To always stick together as a group,” Jesy said. “She said what she loves about us is how much we are such a unit and she loves how there is no one in the group that is like, ’Oh look at me.’ She’s like I love that you are four and that’s how you should stay and that was really nice.

I think the lyrics ‘I want to wear his initial on a chain around my neck, not because he owns me, but because he really knows me’ have a double meaning.

We all know one of Taylor’s ex gave her a chain. When I think about it, I can’t stop wondering if he was like ‘This is for everyone to know you’re mine.’ You know? Like an object of ownership rather than ‘something to remember me’. But it meant nothing, cause he didn’t know how to treat something that was apparently his.

With Joe, she wears the necklace because it’s a symbol of love. Something he probably gave her. Nothing too expensive, but meaningful. Something she could treasure with her whole heart. And when she looks in the mirror and sees that necklace around her neck, she remembers how much he loves and cares for her. How he really knows her. How he doesn’t judge but instead listens. How he supports her no matter what. How he changed her life.

That way she can have him close to her chest, and her heart. Even when he’s away. ❤️

  • As much as I love how sassy this era is appearing to be it also really fucking hurts because she was always so optimistic not just about love but about life and seeing the best in people and the entertainment industry has literally beaten that out of her to the point she's had to kill her old 'self' just to function through it and survive. She deserved so much better than they gave her and words can never make up for what she's had to lose but god damn it she's not taking it any longer.

all my flowers grew back as thorns, windows boarded up after the storm” really hit me the first time I heard it looking at Taylor in front of me and I just started to cry because just before she played it she told us how anxious she had felt after The Incident™ to go anywhere at all and I just was picturing her all hidden and sad no even able to talk to us and I just love her so much I couldn’t bare thinking of her so sad…. but THEN SHE HIT ME WITH THE NEXT LINE

“he built a fire just to keep me warm

and I just lost it holding hands with Sarah like I was gonna fall apart because it hit me that at least when she couldn’t confine in us to help her as rebuilt her sanctuary, at least she had Joe.

Thank you Joe.

UGH SHE HUGGED JIMMY SO TIGHT BC HE JUST TALKED ABOUT HIS MOM AND HOW SHE USED TO SQUEEZE HIS HAND THREE TIMES AND SAY I LOVE YOU SHE IS SO GENUINE AND PRECIOUS AMD SO MUCH MORE WORRIED ABOUT HIM THAN THE PROMOTION OF HER ALBUM THIS IS WHY I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT SO MUCH SHE GENUINELY HAS A HEART OF SOLID GOLD IM CRYING RIGHT NOW I LOVE HER SO SO SO MUCH

“I’m never the first one to pull away from a hug because I don’t know how much that person needs it.” TS

Just think about the significance of that statement for a moment.  Taylor never let’s go first because she’s thinking first about the person she’s giving love to and how much they might need it.  Too often I’m the one who lets go first, mostly because of my own insecurities, we all know Tay has insecurities too, but she puts them aside to make sure the people she’s with get the love they need.  I for one am going to try and do that more.

I hate thinking about your pretty face covered in tears, but I know why you’re crying because I’ve been in your place. This isn’t a high school thing or an age thing. It’s a people thing. A life thing. It doesn’t stop. It doesn’t end or change. People cut other people down for entertainment, amusement, out of jealousy, because of something broken inside them. Or for no reason at all.

It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. They won’t understand you and they won’t understand me. But the only way they win is if your tears turn to stone and make you bitter like them. It’s okay to ask why. It’s okay to wonder how you could try so hard and still get stomped all over. Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing or dancing around to your favorite song.

If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more.

Every time someone picks on me, I’ll think of you in the hopes that every time someone picks on you, you’ll think of me… and how we have this thread that connects us. Let them keep living in the darkness and we’ll keep walking in the sunlight. 

Forever on your side, Taylor.

Many of her songs are not about her own personal experiences with love — about half are inspired by her friends’ relationships. “I’m fascinated by love rather than the principle of ‘Oh, does this guy like me?’” she says. “I love love. I love studying it and watching it. I love thinking about how we treat each other, and the crazy way that one person can feel one thing and another can feel totally different,” she says. “It just doesn’t take much for me to be inspired to write a song about a person, but I’m much more likely to write that song than do anything about it. You know, self-preservation.”

anonymous asked:

Kind of a weird question but do what makes you love Taylor? Don't take this the wrong way, but if I had just randomly met you, I never would guess that you like Taylor Swift as much as you do. Is it her personality, her intelligence, etc.?

well, obviously i love her music/song writing, but other than that i love her personality. i love how she has always remained respectful towards everyone, how she has always treated her fans extraordinarily well, and how she goes out of her way to be unfailingly kind to people even if they are complete strangers. i love how she has kept her dignity in the media eye, especially how she has always had a sense of eloquence and maturity that many celebrities lack. i also love how intelligent she is, i think it is often overlooked but she is the CEO of her own brand, and she manages it extremely well… she isn’t a puppet who sings, she knows exactly what she is doing and she is the boss, she doesn’t take orders or play to a pre-designated image. i also love how genuine she is, it doesn’t ever seem forced when she interacts with fans, and she seems to truly care about people. i love that she donates money, oftentimes anonymously, to help people, and doesn’t go out seeking a pat on the back whenever she does a good deed. she is also an amazing role model to young girls (and boys) everywhere, and even when she gets shit for everything she does she never sinks to their level, she turns the other cheek and keeps on doing what she does. i admire how she has managed to stay sane and grounded after everything, she has been in the spotlight for about 10 years now and it is remarkable that she doesn’t have an ego the size of her career.  

yo my mind can’t really wrap my mind around the fact that taylor literally has not talked to the media/promoted anything for this new music except to us. she’s been on tumblr day and night interacting with us. she unfollowed everyone on her social media accounts except for us, and THAT is what love looks like. she loves us so fucking much to the point that just through her likes to us she has communicated with us her thoughts and views towards this new era/music. like she doesn’t need promo because we are it and she trusts us. look how fucking awesome taylor swift is, i will never be able to get over it.

Y'all that video honestly has me more shook than anything else like, she let us in on her writing process…..and it isn’t some 3 min short video it’s 7 freaking min long of her working out the lyrics and the harmony and her being her adorable natural self and I just can’t believe this video I HONEST TO GOD love it so much I can’t even describe it properly like I’m about to cry sitting at work

Taylor Swift is my childhood when I was little and Cinderella was my favorite disney princess. She’s my teenage years when I was trying so hard just to fit in. She’s those days when I felt completely left out and alone, because I had no one by my side but her. She was in those moments when I went through a really tough heartbreak and lost all my hope in love.
Taylor was also in those moments where I found the sweetest taste of freedom and learnt how to laugh while dancing at the sound of my own beat again. When people tried to bring me down and mock at my dreams she was there quietly reminding me my worth when all I thought I’m ever gonna be is worthless.
Taylor Swift is the songs that me and my sister sing while we bake banana bread on a rainy autumn night, and the joy that snowy Christmas time brings. She’s the feeling you get when you finally hug your best friend after spending months and months of being apart. She’s the sweet calming melody when all I want to do is lock myself in my bedroom and just cry myself to sleep.
Taylor is those late night dance parties with your friends when you come up with the weirdest dance moves and you just feel so insanely happy at that moment that you don’t even care how you look.
She’s the soundtrack of my roadtrips when me and my friends scream her songs at the top of our lungs while we drive with our windows down, and she’s the feeling you get when you’re coming home. Taylor Swift is my home.

IM STILL NOT OVER WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO ME! THIS ALBUM IS GOING TO SLAY OUR FACES OFF. ITS BETTER THAN I EVER DREAMED AND SHE IS SO PROUD OF EVERY SINGLE TRACK AND SHE WAS BEAMING AND SHE KNEW MY FREAKING NAME AND HUGGED ME SO TIGHT I MELTED AND I CANT BELIEVE SHE LOVES ME BUT ILL FOREVER HAVE HER BACK! ❤️❤️❤️ I DONT KNOW THE WORDS TO DESCRIBE THIS FEELING. TAYLOR CAN YOU PLEASE WRITE A SONG THAT CAPTURES HOW WE ALL FELT LAST NIGHT? I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!

Reputation: The Album Heard Round The World

By: Charlotte Sarraille for Huffington Post
Date: November 11th 2017

You’re listening right now. Aren’t you? You’ve been listening since yesterday, right? I mean, you bought it on iTunes when you saw it wasn’t on Spotify yet, and you’ve been in a T Swift loop ever since. Am I right? Probably…

Well, in case you somehow didn’t know, Taylor Swift released her latest album yesterday. And even if you hated her or wanted to hate her new music, you’ve got to admit: Reputation is pretty great.

The 15 tracks on the album vary in tone and style. There are some songs that definitely reference Kanye and Kim. For example, that fake apology in “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”? Totally directed at them. Instant classic.

Other tracks on Reputation are all about how in love Taylor is right now. Honestly, though, who wouldn’t write a bunch of love songs about a guy who wants you just as much at your worst as he wants you at your best? The lyrics to the song “Delicate” demonstrate just how lucky Taylor feels to have a new beaux who supports and cares about her so much. She found a good one. I say bring on the love songs, Tay Tay!

Finally, there are songs on the new album that are, most simply put, about life.

No surprise there, though. If there’s one thing T Swift gets, it’s life. She has always known how to write a song that puts into words exactly how you felt that one time you: first saw your soulmate across a crowded room, first got your heart broken, or first realized it was time to admit you’re not the same person you were five years ago (for worse and for better). Yes, Taylor Swift writes songs that become our anthems, because she knows how to perfectly capture in lyrics what we have wordlessly been feeling our whole lives.

This skill of hers is perhaps most apparent in the last song of Reputation: “New Year’s Day”. The final note (pun intended) of the album is a throwback T Swift tune about a nameless boy. In the song, Swift asks him to never “become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere.” If that isn’t relatable, then honestly you’re lying to yourself…

But it’s more than just the fact that Taylor Swift knows how to express in song how you felt altering hearing his voice post-breakup. It’s more than a boy or a love story.

It’s what Taylor did.

She came back from what everyone thought was a permanent downfall, creating an album that’s new and different and strong. These songs aren’t about finding Prince Charming. They are about making mistakes, sticking up for yourself, and doing your best with whatever comes your way. And ultimately, Reputation reminds us that no matter what happened this year or last, there’s always the hope, with a little love and support, for a new start.

So thanks Taylor, for giving us so many new and amazing songs to play on repeat (you never fail to write the catchiest melodies!!). But more importantly, thank you for reminding us that reputations are meant to be embraced, destroyed, and recreated all the time. After all, you have to fall down before you can rise up even stronger the next time.
