7 Reasons 'Folklore' Proves Taylor Swift Is The Last Great American ANYTHING In 2020

7 Reasons 'Folklore' Proves Taylor Swift Is The Last Great American ANYTHING In 2020

It's not a "hoax," 2020 has really had a marvelous time ruining everything, but at least "folklore" brought us "peace." OK, I'm done.

7 Reasons 'Folklore' Proves Taylor Swift Is The Last Great American ANYTHING In 2020

Taylor Swift's "folklore" is on EVERYONE'S minds still right now. It's been a week since it's released and it's still topping most charts.

This was Taylor's eighth studio album, and I have said this repeatedly, but the SECOND one that she owns, thank you very much.

While her last album, "Lover," was a crowd favorite, I am 100 percent convinced that Swifties are still talking HARDCORE about "folklore" because they were all so thrown off over its release. Like, "Oh, only less than 24 hours with no easter eggs to plan for the drop of my favorite artist of all time? I AM CALM."

At least, that's how I picture the thoughts because I, a Swiftie, have experienced them myself. 2020 has definitely not gone as planned for us, but this album really gave us some bliss for a little while.

1. The lyrics about the lost loves are just to die for. 

"Even on my worst day, did I deserve, babe / All the hell you gave me? / 'Cause I loved you, I swear / I loved you 'til my dying day " — "my tears ricochet"

2.  The lyrics that just make you feel like a bad ass.

"There goes the loudest woman this town has ever seen, I had a marvelous time ruining everything" — "the last great american dynasty"

3. The shock, excitement,  and the rest of the serotonin that our bodies could handle upon her announcement of the album.

"And I almost died when I read the news. Usually, with Taylor Swift's new albums, she announces them and they aren't released for a couple of weeks. But with her new album, she's given her fans less than a day to prepare."

4. The theories. The ENDLESS theories. 

Tay announced her album on the day of the 1D 10-year anniversary, and that raised some eyebrows here and there. I'm sure it would've raised more if everyone weren't so distracted that we were getting a SURPRISE album.

5. Nobody can fully decide their favorite song on the album because it truly changes on a daily basis. 

Honestly, it's hard to rank songs on a new album of your favorite artist, but this one was even harder. It was like trying to rank your favorite TV show episode or book chapter. Every single one has its pros.

6. Of course, there would be some shade that would just be absolutely laughable. 

Nothing like Smash Mouth coming out of the hollows of nothing to dis someone way more talented than them.

7. The reviews are in, and they are STELLAR. 

Taylor Swift has loads and loads of incredible masterpieces, but "folklore" is raved over for its stories and whimsical melodies.

If you have not listened to "folklore" yet, stream it now, you are missing out.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
