Taylor Swift is worth approximately $1.1 billion.

Elon Musk tips that much at the nudie bar on a Saturday night.

I'm shocked - shocked! - that old dudes aren't into T-Swiff's music.

That being said, I do miss the days when a man could come home and watch some Taylor Swift on Monday nights, without having football shoved in his face.

Just looked it up, she's 33. Think she'll hit the "oh my god I'm getting old!" stage and hit the drugs and bottle and start looking like a plastic surgeon's Etch-A-Sketch after she hits 40?

Like Brittany Spears, who was the diva for a previous generation?

I'm like Ben -- I don't have any idea what her music sounds like and I wouldn't know it was her music if I heard it playing somewhere.

Saira Rao Sees TIME's Taylor Swift Cover, Tweets About 'White Love of Black and Brown Genocide'

dat community note, tho   =D

Some people are convinced that whites built our whole society* around screwing over people on their other side of the world. No, our ancestors were not concerned about their own happiness, their children's well-being, or pleasing the Almighty. It wasn't even about making money and chasing tail. Nope, it was all about being mean to brown people.

The kind of thing only education can fool you into believing.


*"society," singular, because all white people are the same

Of course. Most Zoomers don't know the Big Bopper from the Ink Spots. Or maybe Jenny Lind would be closer to your generation.  :P

As I remember it, Spears was never more than one among many singing starlets of her generation, like Christina Aguilera, and other girls we don't remember anymore. Spears is mostly in the news now because she and her family are a train wreck.

Taylor Swift has always been taken a lot more seriously than those types, at least in the pop culture. Not by us, of course. I mean, we don't even worship Beyonce, so we're beyond redemption.

That is sort of what I remember though I don't recall hearing much about her family.  I never listened to her music, but her videos showed up on TV a lot.  That is almost the same reason I know anything about Taylor Swift except maybe more internet exposure.  I paid more attention to award shows and half time shows in the 90's maybe.

WTF? Any acknowledgement of anyone white by anything is glorification of POC genocide.

Are you so white and racist that you don't know that?

If I'm not reminded of how inherently racist I am because of my race at least every 15 minutes I forget.

She has already done that regarding abortion and support for dems. I heard it on fox business, but just did a quick gazoogle. This is likely in line with a good 70% of her fan base, I would guess.

If she's smart she better not say word about Hamas/Israel one way or the other.

My daughters like her.  My wife likes some of her older stuff.  I wasn't overly bothered by media saturation because I tend to avoid media that focuses on celebrity news.  However, now that our resident Swifty decided that APS needed a thread dedicated to her ...

It is unfortunate that Taylor Swift uses her talent and platform to degenerate Christian sexual morality, and push left wing causes.

I assume it is a result of who she surrounds herself with.  She probably knows next to nothing substantive about those issues.

<sigh>  Oh, well. <snif>

Guess asking her out is out of the question now?

<sigh>  Oh, well. <snif>

Actually, I dated a liberal lady between marriages.  Boulder, Colorado, '86 or so. She was a bank executive; I figured a banker would be in touch with reality.  Not so.

That was when I discovered that when a liberal mentions politics, they really just want an excuse to tell you about their politics.

Squirrel!

Actual headline
"Travis Kelce is seen heading to Chiefs practice in his Rolls as 'squirle' dashes across the road - a day after Taylor Swift left for her 34th birthday celebrations with Selena Gomez in NYC"

A squirrel running in front of Taylor Swift's BF's car is headline news  :facepalm:

BTW: The squirrel made it.
