We’re not sure this is the kind of apology she was looking for! But it sounds like she’ll take it!
Taylor Swift recently got very sassy when she became aware that some lyrics from her song Fifteen were being used in The Princeton Review as an example of grammar being improperly used in pop songs.
But the company actually used the wrong lyrics, and Taylor, after her fans brought the matter to her attention, pointed that out to the company in a Tumblr burn post.
Well, the company took to the internet to apologize to Taylor and to also offered up two of her concert tickets to a “grammar lover fan,” and asked Taylor to choose the winner!
Here’s what they wrote on Twitter:
Sorry @taylorswift13! We├óΓé¼Γäóll make it up to you. Pick a #grammar lover fan. 2 tickets to a U.S. show on us! @people pic.twitter.com/xG9ABdsFuO
├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ The Princeton Review (@ThePrincetonRev) March 24, 2015
That’s a pretty cool way to apologize!
Although the company did say that even with the right lyrics there would be still be a grammar issue. They tweeted (to Billboard, who had a pic of the original mistake):
And even The Princeton Review‘s SVP-publisher Rob Franek said:
“I want to make sure that folks know that we’re big Taylor Swift fans and that we apologize for the misrepresentation in the lyric. I appreciate her response, but the question on the grammar still holds true.”
This seems like a win-win-win for everyone!
Taylor gets her name out there even more in the world, and so do this test prep publication, and now one lucky fan will get two tickets to their idol’s concert!
And some of these fans have been getting VERY creative with these Photoshop contest entires! Taylor Swift will have a lot of worthy selections to SWIFT through!
