I know there are a lot of Taylor Swift fans here, but… hear me out. Because I need to take a few minutes to rant about everyone’s favorite pop singer.
Despite the fact that I can’t seem to help singing along to her music when it comes on the radio, I am not a fan of Taylor Swift. I know everyone is always going on and on about how Taylor seems so nice and innocent and down-to-earth, but I’m not buying it. Sure, she smiles pretty for the camera, wears girly, sparkly dresses, loves to bake cupcakes and has an adorable kitten. And yeah, she always has that “OMG, you like me? You really like me?!” thing going on and she’s always talking about how she wants to find true love, and that makes her seem sooo sweet. But there’s something about her that makes me think she’s secretly not as nice and innocent as we all seem to believe.
Case in point: last night at the Golden Globes when, in my opinion, Taylor totally showed off a little tiny bit of her mean side. Did you guys watch it? Taylor lost the award for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture to Adele. Now, I’m not saying Taylor isn’t talented, but let’s face it: Adele totally deserved this award. She’s an incredible singer and “Skyfall” is a great song.
I’m going to assume that Taylor thought she had that award in the bag (since she always seems to win everything else she’s nominated for), because her reaction was seriously priceless. After the winner was announced, the camera panned over to Taylor, who wasn’t clapping and smiling and putting on a happy face… nah, she was just sitting there giving Adele some major stink-eye. I mean, it was completely obvious. Twitter blew up, GIFs were hastily put together, memes were created. And I cheered, because Tay-Tay’s secret mean side was finally starting to show.
I’m not trying to sound like a total brat, but I mean, come on! Taylor’s angry side eye could not be ignored. She couldn’t even have pretended to be happy for Adele? I know she’s used to winning every award ever for her overrated music but I think she needs a few lessons on how to be a good loser.
And, just wondering, where was she when Tina Fey made that little joke about her? For those of you that missed it, check it out below, because it was pretty amazing. Tina joked that Taylor shouldn’t go after Michael J. Fox’s son, and then said that “she needs some me time, to learn about herself.” Watch for yourself, around the 40 second mark:
I’m pretty sure everyone watching was collectively waiting for the cameras to pan to Taylor’s reaction to this joke… but they never did. I’m going to go ahead and assume that her reaction was that she wasn’t amused, or that for some reason, she was no longer in the audience. I’m hoping the second reason is what was going on, because if not? Not cool.
It’s a given that celebs are going to get teased during awards shows, and many of them handled their jabs with dignity – take Anne Hathaway, for example, who laughed at every joke made at her expense. If Taylor was acting all sullen over the joke (which, let’s face it, is TRUE), then she seriously needs to get over herself. Let’s be honest, Tina Fey was basically speaking the truth and telling Taylor what no else ever seems to say to her. There’s nothing wrong with dating tons of hot guys (more power to ya!), but there’s also nothing wrong with being single. I don’t think Taylor has gotten that message yet.
What do you think? Was Tina’s joke too mean? Do you feel like Taylor was being a sore loser? Are you a little sick of T Swift? Tell us in the comments!
