You know those stories that people tell about celebrities? The ones that often go, “Oh, just wait until you meet them! They’re just the sweetest person ever!”
Well, let me tell you that when it comes to Robin Lord Taylor, aka Oswald Cobblepot from Gotham, those stories are absolutely one hundred percent true.
He is probably the sweetest celebrity that I’ve met thus far – even probably surpassing John Schneider – in all the conventions that I’ve been to. He is simply full of smiles from the moment you see him, has sweet words to say and honestly just makes you feel important and truly shows just how much he appreciates and cares for his fans.
If you ever get the chance to head off to a comic convention and Robin is there, I frankly could not recommend seeing him enough.
Lmao ok so I’m sitting at the hair station getting my hair braided. My friend just got finished with hers and he just casually walks in and she’s like “is that Scott?” So I look up and I’m like…yes. Yes it is. And she just STOOD there so I was like GO UP THERE. And I swear to god I was about to jump up from that chair. This poor girl. I was halfway off the seat and she’s like “do you want glitter?” And I’m like HAVING THIS INTERNAL BATTLE BECAUSE I WANT TO BE SPARKLY BUT WHAT IF HE LEAVES? But the glitter won and I ZOOMED from the seat as soon as she was done and went up to him. He gave me a pick at this point and was talking about Taylor getting ready and how she’s so excited for the show and how great ATT is and then he started talking about them as a business and their stocks and I was just like….okay Scott. Your stockbroker side is showing. So I tried to get a pic with him but he left to go see another group, so naturally I followed him. In this group he asked how we got our tickets and this one girl got them because she’s in the military so he started talking about all the stuff Taylor does involving the military and veterans (or something like that, I didn’t catch all of it) and we were like wow, we didn’t even know that and he’s like “yeah, there’s a lot of stuff that she does no one knows about.” And then he moved onto another group and I followed again lol. This girl was wearing an Olivia shirt so he started talking about Meredith and Olivia and some mouse game on the computer (??? He said to YouTube it) and how Olivia loves it and goes crazy. Even when the computer is off she’ll go over to it and paw at it and Meredith wants nothing to do with it. She just stares at her like “what the heck are you doing?” He kept calling Olivia “Dibbles” lol. So then another girl was like your daughter is amazing and he was like “thank you so much. We like her too.” And I was like “yeah you did a good job with that one” and he was like “thank you! We tried!” And he started talking about how much she loves us and how this preparty is the only preparty of its kind, that there’s never been anything like it and all the planning that went into it to make it special for us. I kept asking for a picture but I’m shy and quiet and I didn’t think he heard me, because he kept talking (I wasn’t interrupting, it was always during a break in conversation). Another girl asked him for one and he finally was like “sure, but She asked first, come here sweetheart” and pointed at me and then I took the shakiest picture of my life.
If Taylor is gay then that means I and thousands of other straight girls have deeply related to songs about women, you delusional shippers really don't think these things through
Why does you relating to a song mean that she isn’t gay?? Guess what, just because someone has a different sexuality than you, it doesn’t disqualify you from relating to their art. I relate to Sam Smith songs.. and guess what? I am for sure not a gay man! Me relating to his songs doesn’t make his or my sexuality invalid. The same goes for you and Taylor. Her music is largely about a young woman dealing with the ups and downs of life and relationships.. whether said relationships are with men or women is irrelevant, if you feel like you can relate to the song, then Taylor has done her job. As a songwriter, the more her songs impact people, the better they are, and Taylor is a great songwriter. So so so many people can relate to her songs: straight girls, straight guys, gay girls, gay guys, queer women, queer men, trans girls and boys, non-binary people, i could go on and on. It doesn’t matter who her songs are written about because the greatest part about art is its ability to be interpreted and adapted in your own situation. It doesn’t matter if Taylor is writing about Dianna or Karlie, if you hear the song and immediately think of your boyfriend, then great! That is how art works. So you relating to her songs literally affects nothing in terms of her sexuality. If you have any real arguments, I would love discuss, but this is pretty weak.
