You tell 'em, Taylor Swift!

Ever since Tay's illustrious career took off, critics have given the singer a lot flack for her revealing lyrics about ex-boyfriends which she always manages to shake off…until NOW.

[ Video: This Taylor Swift Shake It Off Will Have You Grooving! ]

In a recent interview, Swifty defended her music to the haters with a very thought-provoking and wonderfully sassy answer:

"Frankly, I think that's a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars. They're all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life and no one raises a red flag there."

Wow, Tay brings up a good point! We definitely think there's a double standard when it comes to women and music!

If the boys can do it, why can't Taylor?!

We absolutely love this fiery new version of Tay! You go, girl!

    Taylor doesn't need to worry; she has so much support from her fans her detractors keep getting slammed into the dust with each success she has. Her fans love her, that's all that matters to her!

    Bruno Mars "when I was your man": about how one should treat their significant other well before someone else does. Taylor Swift "mean" about how one treated someone poorly and they will be better than them.
    Sure, context is the same but content is far for different.

    Oh, please. Spare the pseudo-feminism. People write about their exes all the time. Stevie Nicks has been writing about Lindsey Buckingham for over 40 years. The difference is, most of these singers don't enter high profile relationships with other famous people and then write passive-aggressive victim songs about them after they break up.

    Ah, it; not about sexism, it's about first training your dim witted fans to examine every song to find out who It's about and being ignorant enough to tak it upon yourself to spray the dirty laundry or maybe not even dirty laundry but somebody else's private life, it's not just yours, it's their too, but take it upon yourself to stand on a pedestal and blab it out at everyone in the form of a song, for money, when it's none of their business, but they all look for it. Most of the time, when a guy does it, yeah people are going to relate to it, but nobody knows who it's about, nobody cares who it's about, people pay attention to the music. Its not about sexism.

    Who is "Bryan Adams - The Only One" about? It could very well be about Lady Di for all we know.

    I don't get it… how is Taylor Swift a feminist? Just because she's friend with Lena Dunham? I remember her reaction after Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (two major representatives of the feminist movement as long as I'm concerned) made fun of her at the Golden Globes: pathetic!
    And plus, she's not the only female singer who writes songs about her exes, many others did, do and will, the difference between her and them is that she purposely goes out with famous people so that she can write more annoying, obnoxious songs about them in which she NEVER gets the slightest responsability of why things didn't work out (because it's alway the men's fault, how childish is that? As a woman, I'm offended, I have a brain and I can recognize when I have to take the blame), and eventually get money. She has nothing important to say to the world, and sadly, she 's not the only one. The contemporary music scene is depressing. Sorry for my rant, it's just my opinion and I respect other points of view.
