can taylor swift read?

i dont make it a habit of listening to taylor swift, but if there is nothing else on the radio i will keep that stupid "love song" on for a minute until i can find something better. its no weezy, but...and i will deny that i ever said this....that one song is tollerable in very small doses.

so it was on the other day and i was actually listening to the lyrics. she sings the following:

"you were romeo, i was a scarlet letter".

i had to wonder, seriously, did this girl actually read either of these stories?

i get that she's trying to work this whole "love story" motif, hence the name of the song, but did she even think about what she was saying?

because romeo dies.

and because the scarlet letter was an A, as in "adulterer" or whatever...but it might as well have been a W because it basically branded hester prynne a whore.

so taylor swift's love story, and message to young girls is she is a whore and wants a guy who's going to off himself.

a love story, indeed.

  1. I really like her song White Horse. The lyrics are much better. It's a sweet song about a young woman who realizes her romance isn't all it's cracked up to be. You should check it out.
