“True, like the dangers of dating an author who writes tell-all books. I asked my best resource (13 yr old daughter of friend) who said the songs are not mean.
Phew, glad I wasn't publishing as a teen -- how difficult would that be to not take advantage of the situation?
Hopefully she will be kind”

“It's hard being right all the time. ;) That one's not for you, Bluebell, but for the little twit who was defending Swift as an "artist" and a "woman of integrity" back when these comments were flying. ”
“You are right. Never go to a party where you are dis-invited -- who would want to anyway? I have no in-depth knowledge of TSwift, but am very interested in the effect of fame.
If she was told not to go, and she did so anyway that seems rude. (But how many less than perfect things have we all done in our lives?? -- I am mostly amazed that famous people (these days) have so few (documented) scandals.”

“Here's the thing: I'm not an in-depth follower of this girl either. But merely walking through the supermarket checkout and scrolling through newsfeeds has made me acutely aware that she's famous for plowing through celebrity boyfriends and then using the inevitable break-up for song fodder. This kid's mother hung herself back in May. He's four years younger than he is and a member of arguably the most famous family in America. Suddenly she's there wearing retro-60s (Jackie O) style bathing suits and staging photo ops (no one even here on the Cape would have recognized the Kennedy kid if not for her making his face so well known this summer). Most likely her "people" saw an opening and a chance for her to milk this kid for more fame for herself, so they set up a meeting and the grief stricken adolescent is now head over heels for a famous piece of tail who's using him to further her own vapid career. I give it six months before she is on the charts with a thinly-veiled "summer romance ends" break-up song.”
“Doesn't anyone think it is odd that the blame all seems to be on her? If I were at a wedding and noticed a celebrity guest, it would be cool, but it would not distract me from the event. I don't think the problem is with a famous person taking attention away from the bride and groom, but from the other people who are giving that attention.”

“But this is a Kennedy wedding in Boston, so it's already a gawker-attracting celebrity sort of wedding to begin with, even before Swift's unwelcome appearance. And the point really is that the mother of the bride personally states that Swift was not only not invited, but was specifically instructed not to attend. So it seems egregiously rude and entitled of the little twit to do so.”
“Good one Michelle, ouch. Was there even a point to that rant? I can accept an interesting but misspelled rant if it contains something of interest. But... have to say no on that one.”

“Wow, how arrogant ans assuming of both of you to think the only language out there is English. And imply that only those with a mastery of the English language can post their opinions here shows such an ignorance and arrogance that i cant even fathom.”

“Amy it's not something I'd normally point out but from what I read, I got the impression that the rant was about people on this thread not knowing the issues??? So if this was a complaint that folks don't know the issues, I was just pointing that this person might want to look at their own communication problems like spelling....”
“Well, obviously they are not women trying to stay healthy and safe against all odds. These guys are the lowest of the low. Get your laws off women's bodies, unless they think it is okay for women to pass laws on their bodies. I have a few I can think of!”
