taylor swift who knew

I just would like to remind anyone that is having doubts about not meeting Taylor, or ever or her following you or anything. Know that Taylor, sees WAY more than you think. And I know we all say this all of the time, but it’s true. Most of the time, just because she doesn’t follow you, like, say anything to you…it’s a 113% she knows who you are. For so long, I never thought I would ever get a chance to meet Taylor or if she knew who I was. But last October Taylor swift wanted to meet me…her and her team stalked me for a while and at first I didn’t even know they were but then I caught on. They like to surprise people, that reaction of pure joy and excitement. So if you ever feel down…don’t. Taylor and her team do the very best they can, and I promise you Taylor loves you more than you know. Just because she doesn’t like your post, doesn’t mean she doesn’t appreciate you. Never give up, and always know…somewhere in the distance a Taylor swift is lurking ;)

The funniest thing ever is how Taylor Swift is not that popular in France (Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry etc are really more famous), and I just read an article saying that Swift wasn’t liked here because, basically, she’s way too “white american prude country girl next door”, and well, no one cares. It doesn’t speak to french teenagers at all !
Like, my sister was a hardcore fan of Rihanna, I used to love Gaga when I was younger, and I know so many fans of Beyoncé, but I told my sister “Did you see, Taylor Swift did that” and she was “???? Who ????”

No joke, I barely knew Taylor Swift before Tumblr.
Songs about John Mayer analysis:

“This is about, well, a guy, as usual. This was a guy that I was sort of enamored with. This song got its title by something that I just said randomly in conversation. [When] he walked out of the room, I turned to one of my friends and said, ‘It’s like watching Superman fly away.’” - Taylor Swift, Kansas City 2011

“It was at an awards show and there had been this falling-out between me and this guy, I think both of us had so much that we wanted to say, but we’re sitting six seats away from each other, just fighting this silent war of ‘I don’t care that you’re here. I remember getting home and sitting at the kitchen table, and saying to my mom, 'It was like I was standing alone in a crowded room.’ That’s when my eyes glazed over, and I got distracted and walked away to write.” She added, “My mom is used to me doing that.” - Taylor Swift on TSOU, New York Times 2011

Superman & Ours:

Superman: “He’s got his mother’s eyes, his father’s ambition,” Both John and Margaret Mayer have the same shade of brown eyes. John Mayer initially went ot college to study education - following in the footsteps of his high school principal father, Richard Mayer. 

Superman: “Something in his deep brown eyes got me seeing that he’s not all bad like his reputation and I can’t hear one single word they say.” Ours: “Seems like there’s always someone who disapproves/The verdict comes from those with nothing else to do/It’s not theirs to speculate if it’s wrong,” By the time Taylor and John Mayer became a public item he was already notorious for dating/bedding many other high profile women such as Jennifer Love-Hewit, Vanessa Carlton, Jessica Simpson, Minka Kelly, Jennifer Aniston and more - as mentioned in Dear John “My mother accused me of losing my mind”, Taylor dating John Mayer was not popular by her family’s stance as well as the medias’.

Ours: “I love the gap between your teeth/Any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored,“ Originally this fandom dismissed Ours being about John Mayer because to state the obvious - he doesn’t have a gap between his teeth! But, upon closer inspection, between John Mayer’s two front bottom incisors there is a very noticeable gap when the photo is taken from above; something the average person would be oblivious too. Back in 2006 when Taylor’s debut album was in the process of being released, she’d joked live on air that if it sold more than 10,000 copies in the first week of sales she would get a heart (that she often Sharpie’d onto her foot anyway) permanently inked. Much to Taylor’s shock, her album sold almost 4 times that wild bet - 39,000 copies! Shortly afterwards she was prompted by the same radio presenter who asked if she was really going to get herself a tattoo, to which she responded “Yeah, I thought about it, but my dad threatened to take it off with a belt sander - so note to self, don’t get a tattoo.”

The Story Of Us, Dear John & I Knew You Were Trouble:

Superman: “He’s complicated, he’s irrational,”  TSOU: “So many walls up I can’t break through,” Dear John: “Wondering whch version of you I might get on the phone tonight,” IKYWT: “No apologies he’ll never see you cry, pretends he doesn’t know that he’s the reason why you’re drowning.” Even in the song supposedly written as a homage for John Mayer before he and Taylor were ever in a relationship, she describes his character as being very nonsensical and complex - almost foreshadowing to his manipulative behaviour recorded in the later songs.

TSOU: “A simple complication, miscommunication leads to fall out,” Dear John: “Counting my footsteps, praying the floor won’t fall through again,” Both these lyrics reference to somebody who is prone to overreacting about menial things and dishing out severe consequences - proving the “he’s not all bad like his reputation” line from Superman to be reconsidered.

Ours: “Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me, lurking in the shadows with their lipgloss smiles,” Dear John: “I’ll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can,” IKYWT: “A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be/You never loved me or her, or anyone or anything.” During the confirmation stage of their relationship, Jennifer Aniston was interviewed on air and the topic of John Mayer and Taylor Swift was brought up - Jennifer Aniston’s automatic response was “Taylor, run girl, run.”

But possibly the most kick-to-the-gut parallel of all these supposed John Mayer tribute songs comes from the chorus to Ours and the bridge to Dear John, detailing the moment Taylor realised that the one thing she loved most was the one thing that was determind to bring her down.

Ours: “Don’t you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine.”

Dear John: “I’m shining like fireworks over your sad empty town.”

Secret messages:

The Story Of Us: CMT AWARDS in referral to the infamous awkward encounter between Taylor and John Mayer when he was unexpectedly invited to perform at the CMT Awards of 2010.

Dear John: LOVED YOU FROM THE VERY FIRST DAY is an undeniable Superman reference, practically confirming these songs are about the same person.

I Knew You Were Trouble: WHEN YOU SAW ME DANCING Taylor and John Mayer met at the MET Gala 2008, where there undoubtedly would’ve been some dancing. This could also be a reference to when they first romantically hit it off, at a party or another award show.

( cont. ) Especially since she did encourage people to vote and she did support the womens march, just because it’s not done the way you want it to doesn’t change the fact that she did. And not only did you guys bully her,  you and the rest of SM basically turned the womens march into a popularity contest. there are literally billions of people who did not go, stop acting like she was the most important not to go, or even someone who could have done anything given that she is not employed in politics and anyone who follows her already knew.

oh my gosh!!! taylor’s been prepping for this big comeback since 2009 in her ybwm music video when she hinted that she had a secret dark side!! XO i knew she was calculating and scheming but who knew she’d take it this far???

I think when it’s all over it just comes back in flashes, you know? It’s like a kaleidascope of memories, but it all comes back. But he never does. I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. It’s not really anything he said or anything he did, it was the feeling that came along with it. Crazy thing is, I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again, but I don’t know if I should. ~ I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright, but I just thought, how could the devil be pulling me toward someone that looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you? Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. ~ I think the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him, it was losing me. I don’t think you know who you are until you lose who you are.
