I’m a fan of his and I think he’s a really interesting artist. (I posted a Vine to one of his tracks once.) But he stated clearly that he hadn’t seen the video and didn’t even intend to watch it. So, respectfully, that sort of invalidates his observations from the get-go. And it’s this one uninformed tweet that got reported on and rehashed, which started this whole “controversy.” We simply choose styles of dance that we thought would be popular and amusing and cast the best dancers that were presented to us without much regard to race or ethnicity. If you look at it carefully, it’s a massively inclusive piece. It’s very, very innocently and positively intentioned. And — let’s remember — it’s asatirical piece. It’s playing with a whole range of music-video tropes and clichés and stereotypes.

idea for 1989 tour: taylor’s people go around the audience picking the most enthusiastic fans dancing and at the end of shake it off they all go on stage and dance with taylor!!
I actually heard it [Shake It Off] a while ago. I love it. What I’m gonna say about it [the album] is… that it is quite simply, as someone who’s a fan of pop music, it is joyous. It is such a great record. Honestly, it’s so good.
Slightly flustered Harry is the cutest.
guys taylor isn’t talking about 5 as in time, it’s 5 days until the single. she pressed the button 6 times yesterday, and now she posts a pic with 5. it’s a countdown just like the red album. and if you look in the elevator video, the number 11 is right below 18. she’s trying to throw us off, because in 5 days it’ll be the 11th. 5 days until new music guys. 5 days. new era is coming. 5.
(i am terribly sorry for this lol)
harry styles does not give a single shit what anyone thinks of him and he manages to do this without ever being rude or abrasive what the fuck i love him so much
……..but yes, all Taylor Swift does is date people, break up with them, and make money off of writing songs about them. You’re completely right. (x)
