Taylor Swift’s Parents Are Trying To Take Over Her Career, And I Can Hear The Revenge Songs Now

Taylor Swift waving goodbye black and white GIFNo matter how you feel about Taylor Swift, it’s pretty undeniable that she’s a consummate professional. She’s not quite my style, but she’s running her career like a machine, and I have to respect that. But you know who apparently doesn’t respect that? Her parents.

I’ve never heard much about them before, but apparently Scott and Andrea Swift are ‘difficult and controlling stage parents’, who are getting closer and closer to having complete control over her professional career. That’s a scary enough thought just on its own, but it gets worse when you realize that the two of them aren’t even together! They’ve been married since 1988, but according to Star, they’re currently living separately. They just haven’t started divorce proceedings ‘because they don’t want to damage Taylor’s career’. Yikes.

But they apparently don’t mind damaging her career, as reports suggest they’ve been the cause of a massive amount of turnover at the top of companies like CAA and WME who work with Taylor, as well as their own company, 13 Management. Taylor’s been working with the same publicist for the past seven years, but she resigned last month, as did Taylor’s business managers last year. According to Page Six:

“Taylor’s parents are incredibly difficult to deal with. Their expectations are enormous, and they are very hard to please. They want to pay as little as possible and treat people like shit, because they think those people are lucky to have the chance to work with a superstar like Taylor.”

Oof. That sounds like a great way to get a former employee to write a tell-all, but what do I know?

“Taylor’s parents think they can do things better, and what makes things complicated is that they no longer live together. They are not on the same page and don’t even like to be in the same room. Andrea requests that her husband not be present at meetings. Taylor is incredibly smart and professional, but at some point she’s going to need her parents to stop, before it turns into a total Katherine Heigl ‘momager’ situation.”

Oh boy. Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Somebody’s gotta put a stop to this post-haste, because you know things are bad when people are dropping K-bombs. As soon as you’re being compared to Katherine Heigl, you gotta get the eff out of there and reevaluate.

This all sounds pretty sketchy to me, but we should have a good update on how Taylor is coping soon, as she’s currently working on her fifth album. Since she hasn’t been dating anyone of late, I’m kind of counting on some parental-based revenge tracks like “Get Your Own Bank Account” and “Tell Mom I Won’t Be Home For Thanksgiving”.

      I’m not a fan of Swifty. I find her music bland, her personality even more bland and her rips into other women who don’t support her to be whiny. That being said. She is clearly a smart woman who knows what she is doing and her parents need to STFU and let her run her show. She’s been doing it very well for a long time. She’s not going off the rockers (as far as we know) she’s making damn good money and handling her business. If it’s not broke…don’t fix it.

        Totally! She obviously knows what she’s doing! Muddling around in it now could only detract, as far as I’m concerned.

      I’m a big Taylor swift fan (for reasons unknown to me…) but that last sentence has me laughing since ten minutes. You’re hilarious!

      Even if the sstory is true, I highly doubt her pparents are doing it for tthe money. I mean her dad’s pretty high up in Merrill and Lynch, and both his father and grandfather were bank presidents. Also, you should see the Pennsylvania house she grew up in, along with a summer home in New Jersey. She was born with a silver spoon.

      It just doesn’t make any sense. Why and what her parents are unhappy about?
      Taylor Swift was hailed as the biggest pop star in the world by New York Magazine just a few months ago…
      She was named the highest paid entertainer in music by Billboard just recently….
      And Forbes has named her the Number 6 most powerful celebrity last year.

      And most recently she has sold out shows for her up coming Asia Red Tour in countries like China, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand etc…..and breaking record for the fasting selling show in Chinese history in China along the way …in just one minute time.

      If anything, her parents should be thankful to her management team for doing one HELL of a good job for helping Taylor of becoming the monster artist she is today.

      I am very doubtful about this Page Six report… There are just too many misleading information on the net.

        I hope they’re wrong, because Taylor’s got it all going on right now.
