Ingrid Michaelson Performs Taylor Swift’s ‘Clean' 

youtube

Has everyone seen this video? It is an amazing and unapologetic thrust forward into creating a more LGBT equal media environment. What happens when you turn gender and cisgender stereotypes around? You get this awesome fucking video- a remake of a video from the 80’, an intensely misogynistic video that oversexualizes women. Compare this video to that one. Compare this video to “Blurred Lines”. Make this an LGBT and Feminist Anthem because it deserves to be and because this video should be the new normal. 

I met her not that long ago, at a radio event and we exchanged numbers. And she came to one of my shows—my record release show in Brooklyn and we just have remained in contact. She just texted me, she’s like ‘I’m having a party for my friends in Rhode Island, and I’d love you to come.’ And there were men at the party but she didn’t want a picture—she said ‘let’s have a picture with all the girls.’ So yea, we showed up and it was fun, it was raining, so we played a lot of board games and she baked. It was very much how you would expect her to be a wonderful host, there was lots of delicious food.

We played charades. When we got there, everyone was on a slip and slide but it was raining, and I was like ‘I’m not like a slip and slide person.’

It was fun, but it was very low key. Everyone’s like ‘Oh my god! You were at Taylor Swift’s house!’—but she’s very normal. To me, I didn’t feel like—I just didn’t feel like anything crazy.
She’s a very, very sweet person. So all the rumours are true. Unless the rumours are bad and then they’re not true.
