    This is literally only about Taylor Swift, you go anywhere else it’s normally tame. Everyone thought she would fail and when she didn’t it was pretty tough for them. Poor souls.

    Is funny how you wrote an entire essay when I said Taylor Swift music is shit, but did not say anything when I said she’s fooling herself. No one here ‘thought she would fail’, she actually failed! The whole image she tried to build just crashed, she’s just showing she can’t stand critics and that she’s very imature.

    When you talk about sales is just ridiculous, everybody knew that she was going to sell more than 1 million copies in the first week. No one gives a shit if she got a 75 on Metacritic, the album is trash, too much autotune, it’ll come and go just as LWYMMD and Ready for it

    You’re desperate to defend her as much as she’s desperate to shut down critics and rebiuld the victim image.

    Well, I think pre-orders counts as first day, so she sold 300K first day, 400k comes from pre-orders. According to Billboard, 1989 sold 600k including 200k from pre-orders.
    Actually, it’s not an improvement…

    Her stans said she sold 800k and that she would sell 2 million the first week. The desparation from her is pathetic.

    the album is ok, but fans have to admit this her weakest album to date. There’s song i never want to hear again “this is why we can’t have nice things”, “so it goes”, “dress”, and “i did something bad” are all godawful.

    It just blows my mind that people are so fascinated with Taylor Swift that 700k copies are sold in one day, when Kelly Clarkson and Pink make way better music.

    I still don’t see what Taylor is going to release that’ll be a big hit. “Ready For It” has bombed. I guess she’ll release “End Game” cause it’ll envitably get played with Ed Sheeran and Future.

    But yeah, I’d be shocked if this album gets any Grammy love. It would be insane for this album to be honoured at the 2019 Grammys, when they have Kelly or Pink’s album to go with. Even Sam Smith’s album is better.

    It will get nominated for AoTY. But it won’t win it. Red scenario will repeat itself.

    So Taylor Swift tweeted this pic:

     

    I find it to be really disturbing that such behavior is encouraged.

    BUYING 126 COPIES OF THE ALBUM? Then wonder why she has 1.5M sales? What kind of fans are these?

    I can’t wait for my 100 pre-ordered copies of Reputation to arrive next week! I hope Goddess Taylor and Ticketmaster rewards my support for her with those Reputation tickets. I enjoy the feeling of being exploited and sacrificing myself for Goddess Taylor!

    LMAO, It’s like a cult.
    Well, joking apart, it’s their money, they can buy as many copies as they want, but this whole thing just prove how fake and scammy her “success” is.

    Dear Swifties,

    We understand that you are going through a period of hard times in your lives. After all, you pre-ordered multiple copies of Reputation with such eagerness and excitement. And then you received the album, listened to it and you couldn’t believe it. You were in a state of shock.  “How could this be, how could my favourite Taylor Swift produce such a bad album?” you asked yourself. You go on to the BB Hot 100 and you realise that there are no Taylor Swift songs in the Top 10. You go to Goldderby and you see all the posters slamming the album. You think that this makes no sense and you start to deny this and in effect, go numb. You tell yourself that there is no way that your idol Taylor Swift, who you supported for the past 10 years, failed. You tell yourself that the status quo is only temporary. You convince yourself that this album is good and has the potential to succeed.

    We know that denial and shock helps you to cope with and survive this period of grief.  But you are not living in ‘actual reality,’ rather, you are living in a ‘preferable’ reality. We, the non-Swifties, sympathise with you and are here to help. Reality can be harsh but we are glad to help you to face reality when you are ready to do so. So please feel free to contact any one of us, if want someone to talk to and to come to terms with reality.

    Regards,

    The Non-Swifties

    1.5 million is the projection.

    Also the the picture of the girl with all the copies of the magazine, she’s re-selling them to people in China. It’s all on Twitter.

    LOL, I stopped taking Gold Derby posters seriously years ago. When Gucci told me no way in hell “1989” was winning AotY. We’re all just normal people and none of us should try to make us out like we’re something special.

    Here’s a tip: IF YOU DONT LIKE TAYLOR SWIFT, STOP TALKING ABOUT TAYLOR SWIFT, STOP GOING ON THE TAYLOR SWIFT TREAD, STOP CARING IF TAYLOR SWIFT WINS AWARDS, AND FINALLY JUST STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT SHE DOES. It’s that simple.

    I’m having a mini listening party of “Reputation” with a couple friends and…the album is great!

    First off, “Delicate” NEEDS to be a single ASAP! That song is an instant SMASH!

    “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” and “End Game” are also obvious hits.

    One thing you can’t deny is that Taylor is an amazing songwriter. Some of the lyrics on this album are very well written.

    1989 > Fearless > Speak Now > Reputation > RED > Taylor Swift

    Swift will get her fourth AOTY nomination due to popularity, not quality. She won’t win again. I wonder what her second week sales will be like.

    She preformed “Ready for it” and a acoustic version of “Call it what you want” on SNL.
