“There will be no explanation, only reputation,” Taylor wrote in her intro to the album, Reputation. After a storm of bad press, the #taylorswiftisover party, and a disappearance she thought was what we wanted, the pathological people pleaser-armed in a black sparkly hoodie and a swipe of dark red lipstick-finally took a brave step forward and asked, “...are you ready for it?"
Reputation is a defiant standing of one’s ground: rising up from the dead (she does it all the time) paired with the beauty of finding love when one's reputation is in the gutter; finding someone who “likes me for me.” Fans know who Taylor referenced in the song “Delicate,” but the Reputation stadium tour proved that we, the fans, like Taylor for Taylor, unconditionally. And so, we filled stadiums across the world even if her public reputation was on shaky ground. We knew better. We laughed with her when she sang “this is why we can't have nice things,” because indeed we can: having Taylor’s music to buoy us in the darkest times, to teach us how to overcome them, is to have a nice thing.
Look what you made us do, Taylor: we adopted the snake not as a slithering, sneaky weapon of choice, but as a symbol of resilience. We gave her a name. We shed old versions of ourselves and make room for growth. If the stage is indeed tilted, we can tilt it in our favor, shift perspective. That’s the true definition of karma, isn’t it? Breeze in our hair on the weekend and all that... (wait, wrong album...) And our *real friends* stay with us through the transformations. They don’t care about the he said/she said. They don’t talk sh-t. They don’t use our (*my*) names. They don’t call us up and try to trick us. They indeed deserve *a toast.* *Here*s to* them.
Always talking about society and culture in movies/books/tv shows, or drinking coffee, or both. Karaoke queen, tap dancer, aunt.
