we live in a society where journalists get pissed at celebrities for literally doing nothing at all.

Oh shit 4 minutes passed and i got caught up in the comments instead of listening to the melon I must have missed something important.

It's really interesting how a year ago you were questioning why people are putting the onus on people not to emphasize an importance on celebs making political moves and "fixing" our lives, and now that Taylor Swift has said "GO VOTE!" The registration rate sky rocketed. It's sad, how much importance people put on what celebrities say. And for what- because they are rich, talented and pretty? (Minus Kid Rock on that front btw)

the thing is Taylor didn't want to drag herself down to other artists' levels. Trend, I mean Trent Reznor is bitching about it now, most musicians are liberal by default. then you have people like Boyd Rice, Varg Vikernes, Hendrik Mobus, and guys like me, who are either a) actual Fascists b) third positionists or c) straight up trolling assholes. the thing is, third parties are not usually respected, and there really isn't a left nationalist party in America yet. soon, though.

I love Taylor Swift because she avoids politics and just does what she does best and that is doing music and entertaining us.

I think it's crappy to make money off of criticising celebrities. Taylor wasn't running for office, so why should she have to share her political opinions?
S G (9 months ago)
I think most of your opinions make sense. I find it a bit strange that many people act like celebrities shouldn’t be in politics but have no problem with business people. Celebrities are business people so if you open it up for one open it up for everyone. I agree that the problem with celebrity is that we put more on them then we do many and act like they’ll save us. But looking at British and American politics lately it looks like celebrities play a part in the balance. Politicians, celebrities, media outlets, business people, the public, the military etc. There’s always a case for when one of these act shitty and the good people involved in other groups come out against them for the better.

politics is an inescapable hellhole where all your friends are no longer friends and have no regrets to talk whatever bullshit they want about you simply for not agreeing with them. never talk politics
Yt (1 year ago)
wow I think I finally got that part of USA politics; and the argument that politics IS a form of show business. I think most people are too ignorant and/or Jaded to know much about politics. So they look up to someone else to give them an opinion. Politicians are already inclined to "act" and being pretty damn fake in order to win their public opinion... So of course bringing actual actors/actresses into the mix, as if they are some sort of ethical beacon, and their opinions are SO MUCH more valid... you can't hope to have a balanced and rational society out of that. Is society and politics are just become a popularity contest? Like the Idocracy movie?

i dont think that is the point. i guess people are mad that she didnt support a specific cause such as the black lives matter movement or ask her fans to donate to Planned Parenthood. If she did, it would show that she cares, but if she didn't it would show that she doesnt

יהוה עבדי (1 year ago)
I'm not concerned with this much, since I don't follow Taylor Swift. However I do think this issue is very much, "fair game." Not because it would've necessarily affected the election. But this was too monumental, on a social level... for a purported "artist" -- with her platform -- to simply ignore; & surely, out of business concerns. It's the difference from being a corporate puppet... and an actual person (with an actual soul). Her supporters have every right, to take issue with this.

Still glad Trump won over Clinton. Clinton is corrupt and way too intertwined into the hierarchy of the political world. I see Trump as the necessary fever needed to sweat out this disease we call our current political situation.

People just want her to virtue signal, that's all people want, boring, empty virtue signaling. Who the fuck cares what Taylor Swift thinks. Donald Trump is the human equivalent of an ass boil. Well fucking said. Well fucking said.

Isabelle Rose (1 year ago)
*disclaimer: i'm a huge taylor swift fan. So. I don't think the criticism is that she would've had impact on the election. I think it's more that Taylor constantly champions herself a feminist and has sorta painted this reputation for herself as a really good person but yet she often keeps quiet on social issues to protect her squeaky clean image. And people just want to know that she's a real human with real feelings and that she cares about more than just selling records. As a fan, I really think her priority will always be selling her music, so it's disappointing to know that her feminism is very white, very self-centered. I would've loved to know her thoughts on the election, if she even had any.

pablopenguin24 (1 year ago)
As ridiculous as it sounds, Taylor announcing her political stance would have an effect on voting. Would it change the result? No. But don't forget superstars actually have a lot of influence on people's view, such as politics. Maybe not for you, or for me, but for a hell of a lot of people out there.

GokuProductions01 (1 year ago)
My problem with the whole Taylor swift thing isn't that I thought her speaking out would change the course of the election but rather give some credibility to all these claims she throws out to the public about being a feminist and someone who believes in equality and shit. I think people have the right to distrust her and get mad that people put her on such a pedestal for doing the LEAST with her platform whilst there are so many others that do the most and get little to no recognition.
GokuProductions01 (1 year ago)
*plus she too often seems to only voice her 'feminist' ideals when it seems to suit her. She profits off this character she creates but in reality doesn't have much physical proof of doing anything remotely important

Blake Vernon (1 year ago)
Taylor Swift did begin her career as a country singer. I believe considering how close the 2016 election was that if she endorsed Hilary it is possible that she could have changed the outcome. Because she is popular in many states where Trump won I believe she could have swayed the election. I still believe however it is not a pop stars role or responsibility to do so. I do not have issue with Taylor for sitting the whole election year out.

Taylor Swift cannot fix the political system is because... she's an entertainer! An entertainer not even looking forward for public service. :p

The Russians hacked her mind so she kept silent, no evidence but they did it.
