I'm not sure if any of you guys have heard but Taylor Swift released an album back in October, and it's been sold millions of times over, and she's the only platinum-selling artist of the year. FYI, hello how's everybody doing.
So because of that, she's on a press tour to end all press tours, which included a stop on the cover of ASOS magazine where she opened up about who she dresses for: her best friends.
"When I'm getting dressed, it's always based on what my friends will think," she said. "They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life. But depending on the city I'm in and depending on the time of day and what mood I'm in, my choices are ever-changing."
Guys. What? Why.
Look. I'm not going to sit here and say why anybody should dress, but are we not all dressing for ourselves? Isn't that the point of adulthood (among social responsibilities and eating brownes for breakfast)? Like, I love my friends, and I will do anything for them, but 100% I don't dress FOR them. TBH, I don't really care if they like my clothes because I'm the one who has to wear my clothes. If I feel fly, then horray and we did it, everybody. My friends can offer their opinions when I ask, sure, but aside from that . . . I don't . . . care? Is that wrong? No. Of course not. Is Taylor Swift wrong? UGHHHHHH I DON'T KNOW. Let's see what else she had to say.
"I think that as much as you should be creative and experiment, there are certain things I know are fads and so I try to steer clear of the most obvious ones," Swift continued. "I play the tape of my life forward and don't wear the things that my kids or my grandkids will make fun of me for wearing."
Really? Because if I have kids and those kids have kids, they can *~deal with my fashion choices~*. What isn't sitting right with me about this interview? Is it because I try to subscribe to the exact opposite ethos? (Wear what you want and who cares?) Is it because I have issues with a good portion of 1989? Is it because for being 25 I want Taylor Swift to own her boss-ness? Help me understand. And in the meantime, wear whatever you want, for the love of all that is good.
