Taylor Swift is a feminist. She is all praises for friend Lena Dunham for it was her sisterhood which led her on the path of enlightenment towards feminism. And Bollywood female actors can take a leaf out from Taylor’s book. Many famous names such as Vidya Balan, Twinkle Khanna and Parineeti Chopra have lately been in the line of fire for “misconstruing” what it means to be a feminist. Let’s settle this for once: Anyone who wants equal treatment for both men and women is a feminist. Men are feminist too. So all MCPs and FCPs (yes it is a term too) must watch out for a girlfriend like Taylor Swift.
Perhaps, the 27-year-old has an OCD of turning every break-up into a musical treatise. She is the dream GF who immortalises even her failed relationships, something not all exes would appreciate. Be it her recent heartbreak with Tom ‘Loki’ Hiddleston, singer Calvin Harris or the other Taylor (Lautner) from the Twilight franchise, she has allegedly dedicated at least one song to almost every boyfriend, that we know of. It is rumoured Taylor is in talks with Hiddleston as she is penning down a song on her latest heartache.
She’s got gumption, that we’ll give that to her. Making your heart bleed on paper and fine-tuning the lyrics so that it strikes the right chord takes both guts and creative genius. Either that or she has some serious problem of ending relationships and then using them as “inspiration” for creating music. One may be completely off by more than margin but let’s give the birthday girl benefit of doubt.
Unlike Britney Spears, once upon a time teenager pop star, Taylor has shown remarkable growth when it comes to her music and songwriting prowess. Originally a country girl, she has come a long way from being sunny, breezy gal in ‘Fearless’ to the twisted, multi-layered GF ‘Blank Space’. You should check out ‘Don’t Wanna Live Forever’, her collaboration with former One Direction member, Zayn Malik for Fifty Shades Darker.
Here’s wishing Taylor Swift a happy 27th. Men you’ve been warned.
