Much like the Worldwide super star and multi-millionaire Taylor Swift, if you do me dirty I'll be sure that everyone knows about it. Not by writing a song about you and creating a bomb a$$ album, but by indirectly calling you out within one of my articles or blog posts.
I'd like to start off this post with a question: Is Taylor Swift really the worst thing that you can compare me to? If you want to compare me to a beautiful, soulful, sensational millionaire, then be my guest, I won't object. But the mere fact that you think that comparing me to the superstar herself is offensive baffles me.
Granted, I know where you want to come from, as I have been following Taylor Swift since her song, "Tied Together With A Smile," dropped way back when I was seven years old. But, it is 2018 and having my so called ~haterz~ compare me to you, Taylor, is a compliment that I am not worthy of.
I say this because I write these articles as a result of real emotion and as a response to real feedback from my peers, not to make money. However, if I could make millions by writing articles calling people out on their bullsh*t, then let's get this ball rolling.
One of the hardest concepts for me to grasp is that there are people who genuinely believe that this is offensive to me. To me, the people, *cough cough* ex-roommates who say this, don't see the true star and inspiration that other's like me see Swift as. I feel as though, like Swift, I am seen as the bad guy in certain situations because of how I say things or because I have huge balls and don't hold back on what I have to say. I don't sugar coat things, I never have, so why would I start now?
Since I have followed Taylor Swift for so long, I feel as though I know how to use the hate I receive on my articles and personal blogs as a way to help me rise up and above those people who are below me.
In no way do I write to get attention; much like Taylor, I write to get my feelings out and use it as a way to cope with society. In no way do I write about people with the intent to "humiliate" them. I do, however, write with the intent that you'll see the article and realize that, yeah, you are an a**hole.
I am honestly honored to be compared to such a popular person like Swift herself. So, until Taylor Swift herself steps in and tells me to stop wearing my red lipstick and to stop being the petty poet on instagram, I'll keep doing what I'm doing. After all, the haters gonna hate. Right?
