Battle of the First-World Divas

The other night my two daughters, Katie and Haley, said “Dad, you’ve got to watch this!” They were referring to the brand new video released during the MTV music video awards, the new one by the once-wholesome Taylor Swift.

Look, I’m not going host any links to the video on my blog today, for one reason, if no other, that it’s a bunch of whorish, sinful, ungodly trash. Did I just say that? Yeah, and I won’t take it back.

My daughters were watching the video awards show on MTV because Katie is a music education major. Katie wanted to get an idea of where the music was going this year and get some insight on other things that I don’t understand. But not only that, they were interested in the ongoing feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

Some of you may be familiar with all the strife and tension between the two pop music divas, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. However, some of us in the real world (because their reality is more of a fabrication than foundational) aren’t concerned with their little spat over what is essentially inconsequential in the big scheme of things. Unlike me, though, there are millions of fans between the two singers who do nothing but speculate over what it is that causes the two to be at each other’s throats. I, for one, couldn’t care less!

It’s not like either one of them will ever read this, but I want to give a suggestion to the both of them. If you happen to know either Katy Perry or Taylor Swift, pass this along…

“Get over yourselves! You’re uber-wealthy, so just write off your hard feelings and first-world problems! Specifically to Taylor Swift, your first-world anger and bitterness issues are ugly, sickening, and make me disgusted when I consider that girls everywhere look up to you. Quit being a snot and show a little forgiveness. Your “reputation” might be dead, but the stink in your soul is becoming too much for the rest of us to endure. And Katy, do everyone a favor and just apologize.”

There, that’s my commentary own the pop-music diva scene. I hope I never have to talk about it again.

  1. Yeah, I wish Taylor Swift had stuck to simple country music and kept that refreshing sweetness. Unfortunately she decided to turn into a facsimile of every other pop star out there. 😦

  2. Uh oh, dad’s mad. πŸ™‚

    My hubby said, after the forth of fifth Taylor break up song, “honey, it’s not about them anymore,now it’s you.” There is truth there and that just becomes glaringly obvious the farther she plunges down the rabbit hole.

    Don’t feel bad about speaking up. One of the sweetest things I ever saw was this dad who wrote a letter to Miley Cyrus about how she was being exploited, paraded about as a total train wreck, and how sorry he was that we all viewed that kind of thing as “entertainment.”

  3. I’m stuck in the sixties.

  4. I couldn’t agree more. It bothers me that these are the women our girls look up to. My daughter telling me she wanted to be like Kim Kardashian is one of the reasons I am committed to working from home. I actually used to like Taylor Swift though.
