So Taylor swift’s shake it off
I saw it
I loved it
And I’m not ashamed to admit it.
She gets it,
The concept of being judged
Being awkward
And strangly weird.
To dance different
Even if it means dancing in a form
That nobody has ever heard of.
Thank you swift
For proving that there’s still hope
We aren’t the only awkward girls out there.

Lorde looks like an alien who is desperately trying to replicate human emotion so her cover isn’t blown.

Please excuse me from deleting all the comments from this post.

I finally took the time to watch this music video and I think people have the entirely wrong idea about it. Seeing gifs like this also gave me the impression that Taylor Swift was stupid enough to take the cultural appropriation route like Katy Perry. This gif is taken entirely out of context.

The song itself addresses how people make fun of her…

I stay up too late, got nothing in my brain
That’s what people say, that’s what people say
I go on too many dates, but I can’t make them stay
At least that’s what people say, that’s what people say

and she’s just having fun. She’s gone from country to pop and that’s okay.

The video however is what people have the biggest issue with. They think that she’s parading black women around in her video for entertainment. The video in its entirety is a compilation of Taylor having fun trying out several different dance styles and (here’s the kicker) failing.

She’s making fun of herself. She looks stupid doing ballet, break dancing, jazz/contemporary, ribbon dancing, hip-hop, twerking, and cheerleading and she knows it.

Cultural appropriation is still wrong, still prominent, and is still a problem white people love to defend. Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” video (though poorly done) isn’t one of those cases. 

As much as I despise Taylor Swift’s music, more white artists who want to incorporate black culture into their work need to take note.
