I was in line at the bagel store and started to listening to the tune they had going. I know this song, where do I know this song?
It was Taylor Swift’s single ‘Shake it Off’. Man, this tune is shallow. When you take away the pimped out video and the Taylor Swift/Spotify argument, and you take away the classic Hollywood actress curls and bright red lipstick, the tune is just a watered down version of Andre 3000’s ‘Hey Ya’.
Except Hey Ya is way more catchier.
And that’s today’s music business — the meat is in the marketing. She talks about her principled fight with Spotify (horseshit!), and she talks about being an artist and pretty soon you think she is a principled artist.
She’s really just a purveyor of post-teen pop gruel/baby food.
