I liked how she looked in the We Are Never Ever video more, but she's still a babe here.

Nope. Not really sure why I have to spell this out considering how all of these songs are pretty straightforward. Long Live is about childhood friends and growing up together. It can be about a guy but not necessarily. It also makes constant references to graduation "We were the Kings and the Queens, And they read off our names".

I don't see how you could think that Never Grow Up is about a guy but whatever.

Mean is outright addressed to critics. Again, nothing to do with a relationship.

Innocent is plainly about forgiveness. Like Long Live, it could be about a guy, but it does not necessarily have to.

None of these songs are about any relationship with a guy.
Yes but you that you are only reading these songs only skin deep. Truly you have to listen between the lines. All these songs share the same meaning and story. Taylor can't keep a man so she decides that in order to get back at 'the man' she will write super popular romance song for tweens and young women. Knowing she will make millions and become super popular, all while laughing at the men knowing we will never get this. Thus making her free to now play with the hearts of men everywhere. So you see these songs are actually very deep and complex. Now it's time for a male artist to strike back!!!

They can certainly be looked at as deep. Especially 3 of these 4 songs. But no matter how you look at it Never Grow Up, Long Live, and Innocent can't be about getting back at a guy. In fact, when I listen to Innocent, it certainly does sound like she is referring to a guy she knows, but she is saying how it's never too late to undo the things you've done. Everyone deserves a shot at forgiveness. If anything, that song seems like she is saying that she is willing to forgive the guys who she thinks has wronged her if they decided to apologize.

Long Live has her battling the fondness of nostalgia in exchange for optimism about the future. I can see Mean being a slight towards some boys she's known, but it's still mostly directed towards her critics.

I don't see how she is trying to get back at guys who have no chance of becoming as popular as she is when John Mayer, Jake, and Taylor what's his face were all extremely famous as it is (not to mention, that One Direction guy). I definitely do think she is cunning and that in some ways she does use these men to advance her career, at least in the sense that she writes songs about them (but really, every other pop star/pop punk band does that too), but not in like an outwardly mean-spirited way.

Also a song that is not about her romantic misadventures. One of my favorites of the year.

I thought the guy was Ian Watkins for a bit.....now that would be trouble!! The song is catchy yes but god Taylor needs to write a song not about guys or relationships etc shit gets old. I heard in real life she is actually really slutty maybe that's why she goes through a guy a week.



I like the song, but I've found myself kinda missing her old style with this song and a few of the others from Red.

Gross. Besides the fact that she has plenty of songs not about guys (I know someone already commented with a few, but if you need some more):

She mentions guys here, but the song is about her and her friends, and she is not moping over a guy, calling for revenge, singing a hopeless love song, etc.







People who call her a slut are disgusting. Even if she was, who cares, but just because she dates frequently (or is linked to guys, it isn't even always confirmed) doesn't mean she is a slut. I don't doubt that she exaggerates some stuff for the sake of a song or storytelling, but slut is uncalled for. Grow up.

I liked the directing of the intro. The lyrics are a biiit lackluster (in the intro), but decent. The tone of the song doesn't match the intro though, makes it seem like it's going to be a very dark, slow song, but the song is not at all. And the video of the song (not intro) isn't anything very good at all.

Oh well, still love the song / album / Taylor and she looks like a total babe in the video.

I'm not calling her a slut per say, i just heard she is not the image she appears to be and i have a good source on this that i trust. As for the songs thank you I will check them out and give it a fair chance. Merry x-mas!!!

I've heard she's not as nice as her image lets on, but I guess not about her being a slut (but I don't really use the word 'slut' very often). Either way I still like her haha. Merry xmas to you too

oh well, still a jam
agreeed. I thought that when the song started it was waaaay to happy and poppy for the dramatic intro. But I'm with you. Great song.

Can't wait to see the Jeff Buckley biopic with Reeve Carney. Man that dude can sing too. Would really like to hear a duet from those two.
