The thing about that fucking Taylor Swift video (and Katy, Miley, Lily, so forth) is how easy it is to make a video about having fun with your friends/dancing/how fucked the culture industry is without accessorizing with Black people/being appropriative.
The first thing I thought when I saw that Taylor Swift video was like ‘why is this not just a video of you and your buddies dancing around and goofing off because that is what this song appears to be about.’
So easy. Why is it so hard?
Taylor Swift is the embodiment of white privilege. She’s a poster child for it. If you can look up that phrase in the dictionary there should be a giant picture of her terrible, smiling face. Not coincidentally, she’s as boring as a vat of flavorless ice milk. Seriously, I lose respect for people when they tell me they like her; guilty pleasure or not.
