Taylor Swift and Changing
- Me: *While watching the official I Knew You Were Trouble music video* Dad, I really think she's changed. I mean look at the way she dresses now. Bits of who she was is tearing apart.
- Dad: She's growing. She's maturing. You're not the only one who's aging, Meg. Taylor learns too and that's a process. Everything she has become and everything she was is who she is no matter how much you think she's changed.
- Me: But her genre has always been country. It's her name, her image, her self! And this! Look at this. Really. Those kissing scenes again, those make-outs, those hugging and oh gah.
- Dad: Country is not just those good-girl-barbie-dress-up play-dates and those fantasies and whatever you want to imagine as all innocent and colorful. Country is also about love, growing old, having sex, knowing who you are and being what you are.
- Me: (I should've just kept my mouth shut. . .but the man made a pretty good point) *shuts up and continues to watch the video*
