about once a week i think about how she really should have riden this aesthetic out for at least an album cycle. this image is so striking to me and conjures up many awesome thoughts about music/fashion/lifestyle/culture

with any luck, we'll all grow old with Taylor consistently making music, so maybe in like ten to twenty years or so when she's a little more weathered and wise we'll get her perfect Laurel Canyon and Great Americana Songbook records.

The other day I found my kids listening to this single and mocking the chorus. This song is so bad that my wiener kids are making fun of it. They don't make fun of Caillou for gods sake.

I did a spit take at the phone call in the middle of the song. She should have got fucking Geoff Tate to lay down those vocals.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/29/opinion/what-sincerity-looks-like.html

It’s interesting to compare Chance’s song with Taylor Swift’s new song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” which is also about a young star coping with celebrity. The former stands out from the current cultural moment; the latter embodies it. Swift is a phenomenally talented and beautiful songwriter who has lost touch with herself and seems to have been swallowed by the ethos of the Trump era.

The video to that song, which has been watched 478 million times on YouTube so far, contains a string of references to Swift’s various public beefs — with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and so on. If Donald Trump or his political enemies made a video about their Twitter wars, it would look like this.

The crucial lyric is “I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me.” The world is full of snakes. The only way to survive is through combat. (“I got smarter. I got harder in the nick of time.”)

This is a song for a society without social trust. Everybody is vying for fame and dominance. Swift was a former innocent who was perpetually being turned into a victim, but she’s learned her lesson. The only way not to be a victim is to be venomous. “Look what you made me do!” she barks over and over.

It’s interesting how corporate the video looks and the song sounds. It’s been a long time since the Sex Pistols burst on the scene. The music business has become pretty good at feeding its audience’s teenage angst with fantasy anger.

Swift had defied the normal ingénue-to-sex-temptress career trajectory of Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus, but now she’s fitting right in. Spears released a similar song a decade ago called “Piece of Me,” which didn’t take itself so seriously.

The first thing you notice in comparing the Chance and Swift songs is the difference between a person and a brand. A lot of young people I know talk about “working on their brand,” and sometimes I wish that word had never been invented.

A person has a soul, which is what Chance is worrying about. A brand has a reputation, which is the title of Swift’s next album. A person has private dignity. A brand is a creation for an audience. “I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams,” is how Swift puts it.

The second thing you notice is the difference between sincerity and authenticity. In Lionel Trilling’s old distinction, sincerity is what you shoot for in a trusting society. You try to live honestly and straightforwardly into your social roles and relationships. Authenticity is what you shoot for in a distrustful society. You try to liberate your own personality by rebelling against the world around you, by aggressively fighting against the society you find so vicious and corrupt.

Back in the 1950s, sincerity seemed treacly and boring, and authenticity, in the form of, say, Johnny Cash, seemed daring and new. But now rebellious authenticity is the familiar corporate success formula, and sincerity, like Chance the Rapper’s, is practically revolutionary.

She’s filmed a new music video and I’d guess it drops this week or next

But I do think she panicked and reworked some of the album and that’s why the cycle for this album has been oddly quiet

As yet, Taylor Swift hasn’t done a single interview about Reputation, the new album that’s now only a month away. This weekend, she announced the first two live concerts behind the record, both of them at commercial radio holiday extravaganzas unlikely to carry much of a personal touch. Other than some short behind-the-scenes videos and AT&T promo spots, she’s hardly been seen in public. But there’s one place you might hope to get ahold of Taylor Swift directly: in the comment section of an Instagram livestream.

Fans have recently reported sightings of Swift’s official account joining livestreams and posting comments like, “Hiiiiiiiii” and “You’re the cutest!!!!!” BuzzFeed collected screenshots, and there’s more captured on message boards and fan Twitter accounts. (If you’re talking to Taylor Swift online, you can also expect to see your username published on BuzzFeed.) Swift apparently even voted in a fan poll asking whether Reputation would live up to its predecessors — she was a “yes.”
