Taylor Swift is a transubstantiated vision board curation of inspirational quotes who happens to be perhaps the world’s most famous White woman. But I have no interest whatsoever in learning more about it. I know she is a very popular and important singer of songs and writer of songs. The “made that bitch famous” part is a reference to Kanye’s infamous interruption of Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs. And then she’ll laugh, baring both of her tiny-ass teeth like it’s the funniest thing ever. (“and there’s literally no “reason” that would make any sense. “As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame”No one is better at this type of specifically White female performative faux melodrama — where status is cultivated and maintained through a state of perpetual exaggerated victimhood (which everyone laps up because “sad White woman” = “Let’s find our fucking capes and save her! You know that co-worker (let’s call her “Susan”) who somehow managed to use her offense at a minor breach in email etiquette (someone forgot to put an exclamation point on a sentence, which made Susan “interpret” it as a “threat”) as fuel for a raise and a promotion? Of course, Taylor vehemently denied that this conversation ever happened. Conversations, weddings, grocery shopping, sex, shits — everything. In fact, not only do I not believe her, I believe she’s exposed herself as one of the most dangerous types of White woman. Using the inherent empathy and benefit of the doubt her White womanhood allows her to possess — plus the reflexive need to protect and preserve the sanctity of said White womanhood at all costs — to throw a Black person under the bus if necessary and convenient.
I am not unaware of its function and cultural relevance. These feelings kinda, sorta mirror my thoughts about Taylor Swift. But now, five months later, the only song on it that still matters is a song (“Panda”) that wasn’t even his song. Anyway, on that album was a song (“Famous”) that began with the following lines: Taylor, of course, is Taylor Swift. Every once in a while, my seven-month-old daughter will spit in my face when I’m holding her. Never one to pass up an opportunity to make herself a martyr, Swift alluded to Kanye and “Famous” during her Album of the Year acceptance speech at this year’s Grammys. She’s more than willing to throw a friend under the bus for the opportunity to performative martyr. One advantage I presume of being romantically involved with a Kardashian is that everything seems to be recorded. But what Taylor did is a form of what Darth Susans have been doing since America’s inception.
