Et tu, Kanye?
I guess the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation was a bridge too far for Taylor Swift, who might need an abortion one of these days. She famously can't keep a boyfriend, and I guess she's not out here trying to be a single mother.
It was announced this weekend that she's endorsed two candidates for the upcoming midterm elections in what must be her native Tennessee, both Democrats. For years, it had been rumored that she was secretly a member of the alt-right, and she'd become a sort of sex symbol for white supremacists on Reddit.
She'll probably remain a sex symbol for white supremacists, for aesthetic reasons, but it just won't be the same.
Truth be told, it won't be the same for me either. I definitely wouldn't kick her out of my bed, but she seemed even more unattainable to me when I thought she was down with the Nazis, and hence, by definition, more attractive.
It'll be interesting to see what effect, if any, this has on her album sales. I never bought, or even streamed, her music, and I won't be starting now, but I wouldn't be surprised if she did lose a fan or two—like the Dixie Chicks, when they had the sheer balls to criticize Donald Trump.
Taylor Swift's career was in decline anyway, because she's nearing 30, and hence the Wall, and she's yet to come up with any music that would be appropriate for intelligent adults to listen. She was well on her way to becoming the next Nicki Minaj. But why should she give a shit? She's probably got like a billion dollars.
