I’m already over the Tremendous Bowl.
For something, we want a spoil from Taylor Swift, and she or he simply wishes a spoil.
That was once abundantly transparent to me closing Sunday evening on the Grammy Awards. Her disingenuous surprise as she realized she received the Pop Vocal Album award made me roll my eyes even tougher when she very easily took the chance to announce a brand new album coming this 12 months.
I’ve been attempting demanding to forget about Taylor. I in point of fact have. Even if she copied Beyoncé’s paintings or used her tune with Ice Spice as a distraction after relationship her racist ex, I simply minded my industry.
But it surely’s rattling close to inconceivable to stay her industry out of my industry when she’s each rattling the place. And I needed to deal with it in this week’s episode of “I Know That’s Proper.” She’s been entrance and middle at the entire primary award displays this 12 months. She’s been everywhere ESPN just about up to her boyfriend, Kansas Town Chiefs tight finish Travis Kelce. And she or he’s been up and down my social media feeds even though I don’t practice her nor any of her fan pages.
Swift hasn’t ever been spectacular to me. I do, alternatively, recognize the truth that many of us love her and her track and it’s simply no longer for me, and that’s OK. The entirety ain’t for everyone.
The rising factor for me is how she’s been propped up. Her logo of feminism hasn’t ever felt inclusive, but she’s been praised for empowering girls. Her courting with Kelce is like another superstar romance, but cameras lower to her all the way through NFL video games like she’s at the sidelines calling performs. And she or he’s gained Album of the 12 months on the Grammys 4 occasions. A Black girl hasn’t received the respect in 25 years.
Greater than only a critique of Swift, that is about how she’s mentioned, lined in media and lauded via establishments. This blond white girl is noticed as The us’s gold same old. That doesn’t sit down proper with me. The truth that she leans into it doesn’t sit down proper with me both.
I’m no longer taking a look ahead to gazing The us gawk whilst their favourite sweetheart watches her beau play The us’s favourite game. However Usher’s acting all the way through halftime, so howdy, I’ll music in for his 13-minute efficiency.
And if it feels like I’m a hater, I’m.
