    I think it would be awful to be young & single, and every time you go out on a date with anyone it's splashed all over the tabloids & exaggerated into a huge thing. Not to mention the pictures even if all you are doing is talking to someone.
    You have to be "on" at all times.

    Even with my much older & much more boring life, I could only imagine what they'd say about me. Who knows, maybe even I'd find it interesting.

    Just because there are worse examples out there, doesn't mean that Taylor is a good one. I wouldn't want my daughter idolizing a girl who's so focused on being beautiful and who seems to hop from boyfriend to boyfriend like she has no identity without one. Then there are the passive aggressive break up songs. She strikes me as a vacuous phony who wouldn't have a career if she didn't look the way she looks. Her talent (or LACK of it) aside, I wouldn't want my daughter to emulate someone who can't seem to find an identity beyond what boy she's "dating."

    There's a difference between writing songs about your life experiences and immediately going from breaking up with an individual to writing a snotty, immature song about them that is nothing more than giving them the finger! Example: Adele's songs reflect her life experiences. She is not much older than Taylor, but her songs have much more depth and meaning and she is not writing them one after another to get back at anyone in a nasty way. I have the feeling that Jake Gyllenhall, or whoever, is very happy to "never never never get back together" ... with HER! If he were a songwriter, perhaps he would have written that one before she did! As far as role models, just because she doesn't do drugs or show her va-j-j, doesn't make her a good one for young girls. God help us if she is!

    I, honestly, think Taylor's biggest problem is having too much money at her disposal at such a young age. Her immaturity just comes screaming through.

    Perez Hilton retweeted a tweet from Taylor yesterday that was something of this sort "back in the studio today...watch out..."
    Ridiculous.
