I read a lot of negative comments regarding Taylor Swift on her “Shake it Off” video.
I personally feel her video is great.
It shows that she’s not letting what other celebs, or common people say about her, get to her.
Sure, some people can argue that by doing this video and song she did in fact let it get to her. Claiming that if it didn’t get to her she wouldn’t have acknowledged those people and wrote a song about them.
I have to disagree. She’s coming out with it right in the open blue sky, instead of sweeping it under the rug. She’s saying “hey, this is me and if you don’t like it I don’t care because I will keep doing my thing!”
If you don’t stand up to the people talking badly, what are you to do? Ignore it? Sure, that doesn’t give them satisfaction. But what really gets to them is saying blatantly, “yup you are screwing with me but guess what? I’m going to keep on doing what I’m doing and you can keep on being negative but just know that I know you’re there but I don’t care enough to change because I love who I am.”
I’m not the biggest T-Swifter but I applaud her for this song and video!
