Taylor Swift, Come Back To Country Music

There's a lot more than tractors and dirt roads.

Taylor Swift, Come Back To Country Music

Taylor, T-Swizzle, Tay-Tay Swifterson, Taylor of the House Swift, Little T,

You've had quite the career so far. You've been a household name since your Tim McGraw and Teardrops On My Guitar era. You've had your scandals and your successes. Now you have Reputation coming out in November, but I have something to ask you: forget that album and just come back to country music.

Yeah, it sounds a bit strange....

Ok, I get that you might have a "we're never, ever getting back together" attitude about the whole thing, but I think you're missing some of the positives to this.

You know that wonderful voice of yours? Do you remember actually using it? We do, too. Hey, pop music is great. It's entertaining and you can do a lot more with the music, presentation and subject matter than you previously could in country. But while focusing so much on all of that, you really don't get to push your voice and how truly talented you are. Miley Cyrus just got a huge bump in popularity because she started using her voice again in Malibu. When Miley Cyrus can turn it around and become America's sweetheart again, you know you can do it.

She made it back from this, Taylor.

But you still might have some reservations about the whole country thing because it seems limiting, right? You don't want to sing about the farm anymore -- that's cool, because you don't have to. I don't know how much country you've listened to in the past year or two, but one of the biggest artists right now -- Sam Hunt -- is being played on pop stations. What? Yup, and he has his fair share of country-like songs that aren't being played on the pop stations. But that's a testament to how much flexibility you could have if you come back.

He obviously cracked some sort of code to figure this out.

Also, there are rumors floating around on the internet that you enjoy being "fake". I can't speak to the truth of that, but if you're into that there's loads of that in country music right now. I mean, yeah, country music used to be a lot of tractors and farmers' daughters, but it's not like these famous musicians are still subsisting on farming corn. That won't stop them from writing songs about dirt roads they can't drive their lambo on, though, will it? Hell, Bo Burnham wrote a song about it. If doing a little acting is what you're into, country music has that too.

*That moment your cowboy hat probably costs more than a car*

Listen, I get it, the old Taylor is dead, but that doesn't mean you can't be a little like her. It doesn't make you a bad person, it just means you learned that you can use certain things from the past to keep moving forward in a better way. If you really want to go for some shock factor, this would be a noteworthy move. Do it for the fans and do it for yourself.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
