Sure, it’s no surprise that I’m a big fan of T-Swizzle, as many teenage girls are. I’m no obsessed fan, I do not know her birthday, all the people she has dated, family members names, or where she is at the moment, because that would be creepy, but I do know most the lyrics to many of her songs.
This may not be surprising to you, but you might be surprised to know that my dad is a big Taylor Swift fan, too. In fact, today, while at school, I received a text from my dad telling me that Taylor and (the amazing, the incredible) Ed Sheeran would be playing in my home town in August and that he really, really wanted us to go.
I’m not sure when my dad became a big fan, but I’m starting to think it was right after I learned more about her. A few months ago, I saw a documentary on her life called “The Road To Fearless” which follows her on her first tour, and lets her explain how she rose to fame, a quite moving story, actually. As soon as I watched that, I gained more respect for her as a singer, songwriter, and as a person.
I guess my dad became a fan because we like to have conversations about literally everything. My little brother’s become a fan too, although he will deny it if you ask him. He’s always asking me about her dating life, as if I’m her best friend.
Some people have a serious problem with Taylor Swift’s dating life. People pin her as a bad role model for dating a bunch of different guys. Honestly, I just hope my dating life is as good as hers is when I’m her age. I don’t see any problem with going on a few dates with a guy, and then going on a few dates with a different guy. Seriously, she’s 20 something, and she should be able to figure out who she wants to be with. It’s better than most college students!
My dad seems to agree with me. It’s not like she’s in a serious relationship with any of those guys. There’s so much media hype, and I’m sure there’s a ton false matches made by the media. Come on people, leave the poor girl alone!
One of the other things I love about TS, is that she’s done amazing things with her fame. Not only has she given to charities and set a great example in that regard, but she’s also helped out so many other singers out there. It’s amazing how many of the award winners last night thanked Taylor in their Grammy speech. Everyone loves her because she supports and helps everyone. She’s jumpstarted many careers.
All in all, I think Taylor Swift is a phenomenal artist and person, and I love learning more about her, but I find it absolutely hilarious that my dad is a fan! But when I think about it, why not?
