she was born in 1989. which is likely the reason why the album is called 1989.

Bullshit. It's called 1989 because Streetcleaner was released in 1989.

the butthurt is hilarious
it's simple and catchy because it's pop music you turdburglars. Sure, her lyrical depth has taken a nosedive but did you really expect a different direction after her last album?

MrMatt767

^ I disagree. Pop can be simple, catchy AND lyrically, instrumentally and thematically intriguing. Its a cop out to write that Taylor Swift - or any pop artist for that matter - should escape musical criticism simply because the genre to which they belong is popular. You say her last album was lyrically poor, why does that help mitigate (if anything it should magnify) wider criticism?

Yes, it can be. But more often than not, it isn't all of these things, to the point where I'm saying if 99.7999994% of top 40 radio hits are terrible and mindless then why are people outraged that Taylor motherfucking Swift's latest single lacks depth?
Would you go into a theater and watch a Michael Bay movie and walk out similarly outraged? Would you order a Bud Lite and expect something other than carbonated water?

@HomerPimpson I'm not sure people are absolutely OUTRAGED that its shit, they watched the video, commented about it being a piece of trash and moved on with their lives. And no, I wouldn't watch a Michael Bay movie/buy Bud Lite in the first place because it cost something called time and money, in contrast this single costs - relatively speaking - neither. People watch it with relatively low expectations prior, then when the experience is over in a short space of time they comment quickly and move on with their lives. There's no prolonged 'butthurt' here and I question whether the argument that a product meeting low expectations with adequacy is really as staunch a defence as you think it is?

I feel like we can safely stop calling Taylor Swift a country artist at this point.
Why is our culture currently so goddamn obsessed with the 1980s? That musical in 2012, countless allusions in music, and constantly Tumblr-reblogged GIFs of movies of the time period. The eighties were an awkward time. Can we not admit that? Let's put down the Rubiks cube.

Aj we're going through this revamped 80's period possibly because the people who were kids back then are older, and are now the ones picking and choosing what gets played nowadays, exposing the "younger ones" to the 80's.

The 80's were awkward, but I'm okay with it surprisingly
