    MySpace is still thriving with the music community. They have made it a niche space.

    I just hope she learns a new chord progression soon, as the D-A-Bm-G thing is getting a little tired from overuse.

    Maybe a G-C-Am-D thing, just for a change of pace, huh?

    Honestly, I wouldn't recognize one of her songs if I heard one.

    I mean, other than supporting Trump.
    She's won country music awards.

    Some of us like the new country as opposed to the "twang" of yesteryear.

    The ACLU of Northern California is representing a blogger who wrote about singer Taylor Swift and one of her latest singles. It’s in response to a post where editor Meghan Herning notes Taylor Swift has become an “alt-right” icon—and the artist needs to pointedly denounce these fans’ white supremacist values. The post is a mix of political speech and critical commentary, and discusses the resurgence of white supremacy and the fact that some white supremacists have embraced Swift. The blog post argues that lyrics in Swift’s recent single “Look What You Made Me Do” seem “to play to the . . . subtle, quiet white support of a racial hierarchy.” It goes on to mention how extreme right-wing sites like Breitbart and The Daily Stormer have rallied around the song and Swift’s work generally.It also provides a critical interpretation of some of Swift’s music, lyrics, and videos. The post ends by calling on Swift to personally denounce white supremacy.

    On Oct. 25, Herning received an intimidating letter from Swift and her attorney labeling the blog post as defamatory and demanding that she issue a retraction, remove the story from all media sources, and cease and desist. The letter threatened a lawsuit. Not only did Swift bring more attention to this post, she made her silence (and complacency) even louder. It only makes Swift look even more racist because it makes me immediately think (a) she is also a white supremacist, or (b) she doesn’t want to lose white supremacists’ money and adoration. Either way, this is a really bad look.

    This reflects badly on such left wing progressives and gives a little insight into how such people think.

    What little i know about Swift includes that she did not say she would vote for Hillary. On the other hand she did not say who she would vote for. Anf of course many of her songs seem to be about trashing former boyfriends and competing musicians.

    The point is whatever else she does she thinks for herself and should be left alone. It is left wingers making unreasonable and stupid demands because someone ( especially a white woman ) dares to not think as they approve. This is typical about how such people think. Individuals especially women are not permitted to think independently in the view of left wingers

    I hearby demand that Bernie Sanders denounce BLM and ANTIFA.

    ANd I am sure he cares about my demand and will get right on that

    Do you think her record sales would decrease if she publicly denounced racism?
