When Taylor Swift first started out, I didn’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about her. Â But I did think she was cute, sweet, and a breath of fresh air in many ways, especially in the “role model” sense. Â Through the years, she’s had her highs and lows. Â While she’s steered clear of public intoxication/felony vandalism/smoking weed on stage/mental breakdowns, she hasn’t been as successful in avoiding being insufferable sometimes. You know, kind of like Anne Hathaway. Â She’s so sugary and spicy and everything nice-y, she can actually give you a cavity. Â Couple that with her ignorant anti-feminist remarks and fluffy songs, and I have to say I haven’t always been the biggest fan. Â But lately I’ve felt like the tides are turning. Â Damn it. I am falling under her spell, especially after seeing her 4th of July photos.
I guess if even former foe Lorde can fall under her spell, anyone can. Â Anyone being people like Lena Dunham, Emma Stone, Ingrid Michaelson, and Jaime King. Who all attended T. Swift’s Star-Studded Star Spangled Banner Slumber Party Of Sweetness (at least that was what it was called on my formal invitation, underneath a layer of star-shaped confetti made from scraps of the Federalist Papers.) Â They baked apple pie, frolicked in the Rhode Island surf, and even had a hillside slip ‘n slide! We know how much she loves to be patriotic, but this is taking it to another level.
WHY WASN’T I THERE. BECAUSE THERE’S A MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN INSIDE OF ME TOO. Â Don’t pretend you don’t agree. Â It’s the most Americana thing I’ve ever seen! I feel so warm and tingly justÂ looking at this pics. Â It’s like a Nancy Meyer movie come to life!
God bless America and God bless Taylor Swift. Â Long may she reign (as queen of jam and pie and overall goodness).
