The Taylor Code


"So he calls me up and he's like, 'I still love you,' and I'm like, 'I'm sorry, I'm busy opening up the Grammys,'"
-- Taylor Swift during a spoken word portion of the song "We Are Never Getting Back Together" during the opening of the Grammys, this line, spoken in a British Accent made it subject to...The Taylor Code
Does it drive anyone else crazy that Taylor Swift dates famous men, breaks up with them and writes songs about them?
During the opening of the 55th Grammy Award ceremony Taylor Swift does a spoken word portion in a British accent and the buzz builds up that this accent was in reference to her recent break up with Harry Styles (British singer in boy band One Direction).
It seems like everything she does is under the microscope of speculation of which songs relate to which male celebrity and past boyfriends. You read things like, "Did you see the scarf in that music video how it matches with the scarf in that picture that was taken when they were walking around the city?"
This is bonkers!
Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy, Harry Styles...why do these guys date her?
Do they say "I'll be different?"
Here's Some Lessons/Thoughts:
1. Guys, look for the pattern - you will not be different.
2. Swift will never break of graciousless
3. If She Does Settle Down with someone, it would be weird her stardom comes from singing about guys that came before you.
Final Thought:
Tracking Taylor Swift's boyfriends, song references, and random illusions to breakups is a waste of time. She might be a celebrity, but becoming a celebrity who's song repretoire is a collection of break up songs seems not only like a lousy legacy, but kind of sad. No, really sad.
