I actually like her stuff for the simple fact she writes most of it herself. My little saying is "You know your life is depressing when you find yourself living a Taylor Swift song"
I saw the thread title and I couldn't help but think of this:
Honestly, I don't see what everyone is upset about. Considering what other "artists" are top-selling right now, *cough*Bieber*cough*Minaj*cough*, Swift isn't bad.
Whats going on with cds actually selling this year. Mumford broke the record a couple weeks ago and now Taylor blows even their sales away. Guess piracy isn't killing the industry.
She isn't real country if that's what you mean, but none of the country artists are real country anymore, haven't been for a very long time. Modern country music is just pop with an annoying fabricated twang added to it. It's pretty pathetic but somehow it's insanely popular.
I get catchy music. I find myself defending it a lot actually. I have never found a single one of her songs to be catchy though. It's catchy in the sense that a teen girl hears it and latches on because they think it's the most genious thing they have ever heard.
As for the sales, I wonder if they are taking in to account all of the CD's that several business have been giving away with their product as a promotion. I've seen promotions like this before, but not quite to this extent. Papa John's Pizza is one of them.
If Taylor had written it, it'd go something like this:Hey jude, don't be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.
And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.
Hey Jude, you should be ashamed
'Cuz you broke her heart and you used it against her
Oh, now she's crying all her nights away
Maybe you should effing call her
And if you start to feel bad, Hey Judy, don't cry
She'll probably move on before you're even better
And because you know that you're an idiot, for letting her go
And now you'll be in your bed all lonely

The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.
