Wrong Move, Swifty

| Filed under: Taylor Swift


It was announced today that Taylor Swift will be releasing a special edition version of her new album, Speak Now, exclusively to Target stores.

The album will have bonus content, including three additional songs, some remixes and video content, which all sounds cool, but we'll be taking our business elsewhere! There's no effing way we are buying anything from those bigots!

Someone on Team Swifty must have failed to mention to her that the superstore reportedly donated $150,000 to MN Forward, the PAC that supports anti-gay GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer.

That's kind of deterring factor for us, as well as A LOT of people we know!

  1. 1

    You act like the decision was hers and not her record companies.

  2. 2

    Perez you're such a fool. You have to quit being so over sensitive and over dramatic.

  3. 3

    how does that effect her fanbase?

    i dont think many of her fans are gay, and if they are than sorry. (i dont mind gays at all)

    but not many ppl know that 150,000 thing

    and taylor fans will buy her album whether its at walmart or target.

  4. 4

    She is MONEY HUNGRY! She will do anything for a few bucks. She doesn't care where it came from! All her songs sound the same and make me depressed so I'm sorry, I wont be buying any of her songs.

  5. 5

    Oh Please. I still shop at Target, and I don't care about they're supporting some guy who's exercising his rights. Go TAY TAY! I will definitely buy this at TARGET!

  6. 6

    i say go move

  7. 7

    Screw you Target rocks.

  8. 8

    lmao.. i still will shop at target… but i won't buy her cd… people are crazy if you think you can truly stop people from shopping at target… get real.

  9. 9

    She can't sing

  10. 10

    Clearly you don't respect people for their opinions.

  11. 11

    Oh JESUS! Why does everything have to be about homosexuality with you?
    You're gay we get it. Big deal. It's common.

    Taylor will still do wonderfully!!!!

  12. 12

    There are far more people who don't care than there are that do. Just has you have your right to believe that gays should marry, we have the right to believe they don't!

  13. 13

    Who fukkin cares. Yawn

  14. 14

    who cares. this isn't going to effect her sales at all.

  15. 15

    i dont think taylor swift made the decision all on her own

  16. 16

    Wow… Lame. Target donated to some company that supports some guy who doesn't support gay rights. You act like Target itself is against the gays. Get over yourself. I know MANY gay men that shop there.

  17. 17

    Taylor Swift doesn't care about Gay rights. She's probably a GOP gay hater too. There is nothing about the girls that says she is in support of equal rights for all.

  18. 18

    target and apple apparently have a deal, so it'll be on itunes anyway.

  19. 19

    Perez you should want to support taylor if you love her so much despite the fact that its being sold at Target

  20. 20

    She has a strong enough fan base that if they want the CD they are going to buy it regardless of any affiliations Target has; because she went into the contract with clean hands. Also you act like she conciously decided to make this deal because it would offend people…..get real. Stop acting like everything you do is so pristine, we all know how vile you can be, and even when you have said horrible things about Miley, and posted a picture of her that was deemed unsuitable you still have advertisers on your site, their thinking is probably the same, as much as they may dislike you or what you say they cant deny that you get enough traffic on your site to justify continuing with the advertisement of thier products….youre so dumb

  21. 21

    or maybe SHE DOESN'T CARE!!! people who are fans of hers are going to buy her cd regardless.

  22. 22

    The other people being your mother and your dog?

  23. 23

    LOL you are like a gay nazi.

  24. 24

    Perez, I would love for you to do a little research and determine just how much money you've spent at companies that support anti-gay measures. I's sure you'll quickly shut your hypocritical mouth and continue on your merry way. Sure, Target sucks for supporting this douche but you're only made because you know about it.

  25. 25

    How old are you? You sound like a 5 year old throwing a fucking tantrum. Target is VERY gay friendly. They did not donate to that specific candidate, they donated to MN forward. I'm sure that Taylor will be all heartbroken. Get over your fucking self. You truly are a disgrace to the gay community! So if you don't shop at Target I'm assuming you shop at Wal-mart. That would explain some of your outfits!

  26. 26

    please… who the fuck is going to care anout that? her fans will be interested in buying the album anyways, specially if it's an exclusive edition.

  27. 27

    Dude. You need to calm down. I'm still going to be buying her album AT TARGET. and guess what I SUPPORT GAYS.

    Oh and p.s. half of my gay friends WORK at Target. It's not as big of a deal as you're making it.

  28. 28

    oh wtf. who cares perez..i shop at target and always will …she didnt make a bad move…she'll sell way more than you think bitch

  29. 29

    Re: dbsx77

    Had the best reply

  30. 30

    Mario no one cares what gays don't like, do gays care what normal people don't like? yes I said normal

  31. 31

    *Rolling Eyes* Here we go again…everyone is entitled to their own opinion and can support whoever they want to support. Just because someone or a company doesn't support the same political people YOU do doesn't make it wrong. How do you know you aren't supporting the WRONG politician. This gay shit is getting old.

  32. 32

    Just like you Perez, coroporations have a right to donate to whoever they want. You are a self righteous asshole.

  33. 33

    Re: U_SUCK_DONKEY_DICKS – You are so correct. Target is one of the most Gay friendly companies to work for in the U.S.. This whole controversy was orchestrated by George Soros' special interest group. I think Perez needs to realize that us little people need jobs(I was laid off 2 months ago),so we need businesses to stay in business so we have the potential to get jobs. Since I am a huge supporter of the GLBT community my question to Perez is this? Since the Democrats in Congress currently have a significant majority in both House and Senate and they own the Presidency why hasn't the "Don't ask don't tell policy" been overturned?? Why hasn't Nancy and Harry presented a simple one line bill overturning this policy? What they do do however, is insert it into controversial spending bills(that will be voted down because repubs will veto all spending, thereby making repubs convenient scapegoats)! I think for the most part that all Democrats in congress are quite disingenuous when it comes to Gay rights!

  34. 34

    Re: Gaga love – Really? Money Hungy? The girl made 45 million dollars last year.. pretty sure she isn't money hungry.

  35. 35

    Re: AvaLovesAbs – you're a dumb bitch.. seriously I have had issues with your ignorance in the past but that was just ridiculous.. "normal" people..
    you mean white, male, christians.. becuase the rest of us are minorities.. so if you want to exclude one minority you might as well exclude the rest..
    There is nothing that is not "normal" about someone who has a different sexual preference than your stupid ass..
    get over yourself..
    why don't you just go to a different blog if you hate perez so much because your comments are fucking annoying and they have no substance!!!!!

  36. tasha says – reply to this


    Wouldn't deter me in the least. It just shows how incredibly stupid you are. Almost all large corporations like Target donate money to candidates from ALL the different parties. Some of them are bound to be anti-gay.

  37. 37

    shut the fuck up perez. Her fans will still buy her cd you moron. The chances that she even has a say in it are slim

  38. 38

    Re: Gaga love – You're a moron. Lady Gaga's shit is all the fucking same. She is nothing more than a copy cat slut. At least Taylor actually has talent and writes her songs about real life.

  39. 39

    Wow really? Get over it already. Target is better than Wal-mart and their outsourcing to other countries. At least Target employs Americans and doesn't ship their jobs to other countries where it'll be cheaper. So what if the company made a donation to a politician? What big company hasn't? I would choose Target over Wal-Mart any day of the week, and so would a lot of other people. And to prove a point, just go look at any Target store on a weekend.. This issue isn't really deterring too many customers.

  40. 40

    perez your such a dumbass and no one cares about you or your friends think. her fans will buy the CD regardless. DUMBASS

  41. 41

    who the hell cares what party target donates too? as long as it doesnt affect any prices why the hell do you give a shit?

  42. 42


  43. 43

    Perez you always to dramtic and judgemental. But I wouldn't buy her album anyway. I would rather listen to nails and a chalkboard.

  44. 44

    Re: yumba1 – i think u are right on this one. its kind of sad how gay people are so easily fooled by the democrats.

  45. 45

    Good logic, Perez. Taylor Swift has a record company, who supports Target, who supports a PAC, who supports a republican candidate, who come off as anti-gay. Therefore, Taylor Swift is anti-gay.

    Everybody loves Target and that will never change. You are way too sensitive.

  46. 46

    people love her and that's all that matters. its not like people even fucking new about this until you opened your mouth about it….. it seems to me like you're blaming her for other people homophobia. worry about target and not about her album because regardless people will still buy it.

  47. 47

    Odd… I am by no means a Taylor Swift fan, but the moment perez started in on her I felt the urge to jump to her defense… Exact opposite with Gaga. I like her until I have to hear about her on his blog. Huh.

  48. 48

    Ugh perez get over yourself. I support the gays and I shoped there today. Does that make me a bad person? Target is a good store and just because they donated money to someone who was anti gay doesnt make it bad. And I really doubt that taylor had a say in this.

  49. 49

    Perez, in all honesty, would you rather support WAL-MART?? WAL-MART is doing a lot more dirty shit ACROSS SEAS and HERE than Target would ever do. So what if Target an "supported" anti-gay company. It wasn't Swift's decision. Just thought you should know.

  50. 50

    i haven't shopped at target in years
    walmart all day
    her tone deaf fans will prolly buy it regardless tho
    sucks for you

  51. 51

    i loooove me some target. best store of its type around

  52. 52

    Who gives?
    I'm still buying it…
    My best friend is gay and he shops at target.
    Shut up, perez.

  53. Pavon says – reply to this


    FUCK TARGET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. 54

    perez, what target does with its money is there business.
    calm the fuck down

  55. 55

    "The deterring factor for US" Did i miss where you were elected spokesperson for all gays perez? Because most of the Gay people that i know are intelligent enough to separate a donation to a company that supports a candidate thats against gay marriage and the facts that actually matter. That candidate has a right to his beliefs, MN Forward has a right to support whoever they want and im certain target made a lot of donations to a lot of places. So get over yourself Perez, youre not Ellen. Ive already preordered the album from Target. Team Swift!

  56. 56

    Oh hey, look what I found at Target.com…
    ALL 3 of YOUR books! HYPOCRITE. Seriously.
    You should look into that kind of crap before you open your mouth about someone else selling in Target. And you can bet that is exactly where I will be buying the exclusive album of Miss. Taylor Swift.

  57. 57

    WOW Perez! Not everything has to be about being gay!! Her label probably chose Target because a lot of girls who buy Taylor Swift stuff shop there! They have nice things at good prices! It has nothing to do with a hidden plan to support anti-gay politicians.

  58. 58

    I LOVE TARGET!!! And I will purchase her cd there when it comes out.

  59. 59

    1. Just because you support someone doesnt mean you have to like EVERY SINGLE thing they are about.
    2. Not everyone is obssessed with gay rights like you. Deal with it.

  60. 60

    It was probably the record company for one and for two you seem to forget that there are some gays that work for Target who would probably lose their job if people stopped buying. Get over it no one will stop going to Target especially since they give money to a lot of good causes. Why can't you except that not everyone is pro-gay is this country not founded on freedom of speech. It's disappointing yes, but it is about Freedom at the end of the day whether we choose to hate or love.

  61. 61

    The day Prop 8 was deemed unconstitutional, her first tweet was about how happy she was that Mine was #1 on iTunes. She has never brought up gay rights or the fact the gay community makes up a large portion of her fan base. It's too soon to say she's a homophobe, but if she isn't, she needs to metaphorically grow a pair and prove that she actually gives a damn, as oppose to staying silent to appeal to the redneck population.

  62. 62

    You are definitely being overdramatic and looking WAY too much into this.
    As for Taylor…I can't understand why everyone "loves her so much". I really can't. Her songs (whether she writes them or not) are awful, same old high school crush and have no deep meaning to them. And the song she did about Kanye at the VMAs was just creepy! She comes out barefoot looking like some kind of angel, talking about forgiveness and he's still an "innocent"? Uh, he was drunk and interrupted you at an awards show. He didn't accidentally kill your mother in a drunk driving accident. She acts like she's forgiving a reformed criminal. I'm GLAD he didn't apologize to her on the VMAs! He's the one who got her as far as he is…she should be thankful!

  63. 63

    Or perhaps she just doesnt give a shit!

  64. 64

    how bout no one buys her album period and we call it even?

  65. 65

    Well apparently her label knows a lot more who are for it… don't be a biggot, Mario. I'm starting to see why everyone hates you so much. You are completely biased.
    Re: AnitaMandalay – Agreed.

  66. 66

    Perez acts like anyone who doesn't totally support "anything and everything gay" isn't worth anything! Who cares! I don't care about anyone who is gay or what they do but SHUT UP ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  67. 67

    I bet if Gaga's cd was a Target exclusive Perez would still encourage people to buy it.

  68. 68

    Why is it so many gay people like Perez thinks that unless you agree with them 100% of the time, and on every single issue, you're "anti-gay"? Last time I checked, about a third of gay people were Republicans and about the same number of them voted for Bush in 2004. I suppose those MILLIONS of gay people are "anti-gay" as well?

  69. 69

    Re: stefferini – ooooooh, burn. great research!

  70. 70

    That was the record companies decision… not hers. Target was probably offering them a really good deal. Calm down

  71. 71

    I can bet you 99.9% of people buying her album don't know what you're talking about or care. They just want her album.
    And it's not like they donated their money to some monster…companies sponsor people ALL the time. Not a big deal dude.

  72. 72

    So now you hate target? Perez, not everyone hates gays. Most people don't care, not everyone's out to get you, so stop acting like it. Obviously there are some people against it… but besides those few most people don't care.

  73. 73

    Who am I suppose to vote for if I am pro-gay marriage and pro-life? With your logic Perez everybody including yourself is anti-gay because they had bought or donated money to a company that was against gay right.

  74. 74

    Obama is president. the house and senate both have a majority democratic. they dont need republicans to pass a gay marriage bill. BUT STILL, they choose NOT to .

  75. 75

    Not to mention Target also donated money so that girls could get abortions, and when they first sent troops to Afghanistan, not Iraq, Target refused to donate money or overstock products to troops and their families.

  76. 76

    taylor swift has never spoken about her opinion on gay marriage. She could very well be against it. It wouldn't suprise me at all

  77. 77

    it's ridiculous how stupid this post is. target fucking rocks - they donated money to MN Forward to CREATE jobs in Minnesota [which also fucking rocks], since target is headquartered in minneapolis. i'm sure the donation had absolutely nothing to do with supporting anti-gay shit, moron.

  78. 78

    Target is pretty gay friendly and doesnt allow anyone to harass people for their sexual orientation. So some corporate guy donated money to a republican candidate? Who cares. There are a crap load of republicans out there that want to push their moral agendas through their politics. There is probably one working for every major corperation in america. You might as well not shop anywhere. As for Taylor. People are actually buying her cd's still? YIKES She is probably one of the worst singers to become popular in the past 30 years. She is so bland and has virtually no singing voice. The only people that like her are teenage girls that look up to her goodie goodie persona that she has presented to us, not her talent.

  79. 79

    Besides the fact that you need to get over yourself You never seem to have any problem stealing from Taylor by posting illegal leaks of her material on here perez so i highly doubt that she is holding her breath for your support.

  80. 80

    True! I will never buy anything from fucking Target stores!!!

  81. 81

    this stupid bitch needs to fuck offffffff

  82. 82

    Does it honestly matter? Like the music, it's got nothing to do with the individual person's beliefs.

  83. 83

    I will be buying it! I fuckin' love Target and you want to know why? Best Buy and Target did not donate money to the anti-gay agenda of the party but the man himself. Tom Emmer is easily the most qualified out of the two and for you to refuse patronisation towards the company promotes more hate than was ever started. Target has long been known as an equal opportunity employer… Sometimes I am ashamed to say I read your site. For your information, BBY and Target will no longer be making donations to political campaigns because of this.

  84. 84

    As if anyone even cares…

  85. 85

    Oh stop it you dumbf..k! Business is business..not everything has to have an AGENDA to it.

  86. 86

    Yeah, Pretzel, you do seem much more like the MalWart sort of shopper.

    Love Target.

  87. 87

    Target apologized. What else do you want from them? If they hadn't apologized I probably would have stopped shopping there, but they did, so I forgave them for their mistake. How long will you beat a dead horse?

  88. 88

    poor big baby perez. cant understand the fact that not EVERYBODY is like you, likes you, or will ever like you. go against god and their will be consequences!!!

  89. 89

    I doubt anyone but you and handful of your sheep really give damn. Her sales won't be hurt in the least. Not to mention that is always amusing when you condemn others freedom of choice because they don't support yours. The only opinion allowed is yours right Perez? You call them bigots, I call you unAmerican. Choice works both ways.

  90. 90

    Really? They support an organization who supports a candidate who doesn't support gay marriage? They are well within their rights to do so. As you are within yours to not shop there.

    Calling the heads of Target bigots though, really? Immature.

    I am very pro-gay marriage. However I tend to be conservative in many other areas. Meaning that I often vote for candidates that I disagree with on gay marriage. As much as I would love for it to be legalized, I don't and can't let one issue impact the way I see everything else.

    People are allowed to have different opinions. No need to get ridiculous about it. That and I'm sure her album will do just fine.

  91. 91

    Taylor is just a pretty redneck. She doesn't care about equal right. where would she have learned that. If Target was against NRA then she would have objected. Hill billy.

  92. myjah says – reply to this


    Perez–did you know Target is one of the first companies to give benefits to the partners of gay employees? Or that Target was given a perfect score on equality by the Human Rights Campaign? Perez, because you're such a MORON you're actually going against one of the most gay-friendly corporations in America! Do your homework (or have whoever ghost writes your blog now do their research)

  93. 93

    WOW Mario…when r u gunna stop being so naive? It's all about the American dinero nowadays. Even if Taylor cares about gay people and their cause (which she very well may)…she probably cares about making her millions more…

  94. cbme says – reply to this


    I no longer shop at Target. We all can make a difference if we stand together. What do you really need to buy at Target anyway, it's all a bunch of crap that you don't need. And if you want it….it sucks to be you, to lower your standards of how human beings should be treated.

  95. 95

    Re: FabLyfe03 – LMFAO oh yeah? cause im pretty sure i own a magazine in which she is featured for her article for equality for everyone. so maybe next time you shouldnt share your ignorance with everyone.

  96. 96


  97. 97


  98. 98

    I already pre-ordered it twice from two different sites on accident…but with this ridiculous post i'll make sure to stop off at target on its release day and pick it up. Enough of your the evil conservative hates homos jabs..get new material

  99. 99

    It's weird how I commented about Lady GaGa having an exclusive Target CD including a link to her website advertising it, but oddly the comment wasn't approved or didn't show up…

  100. 100

    i live in norway so i can't buy the special edition:(
