#WCW: Taylor Swift

I woke up this morning hating Katy Perry. Weird and random, I know. But it’s really a product of her super bowl half-time performance that’s been festering within me.

I always liked her music. I mean, none of her hits have changed my view of the world or anything, but I won’t change the station in the car if Last Friday Night comes on. The issue I have is with the image she portrays. She comes off as such a cartoon character in her performances and music videos (and basically everything she does), that she is impossible to take seriously as a woman. Like a real-life Jessica Rabbit. She is probably a smart woman, but you would never know that by watching her in the media and pop world. The doe-eyed, baby-doll, candy-licking, boob-busting, trying-way-too hard, sex-object stuff? It’s just not for me and I feel it sends us back to the 1950s in terms of women empowerment. Her super bowl performance was no exception, and it only perpetuated this Kay Per angst.  And what’s up with her ongoing feud with Taylor Swift? I could be wrong, but maybe she has a competitive streak with successful women. It’s not personal, really! I just don’t get the “dumb, sex object” facade and I REALLY don’t get competitiveness between women.

 

This is starting to sound like a rant, and I don’t want to go there, so I’ll get to the point: My #WCW for this week is Taylor Swift. She is successful, and surrounds herself with many other inspiring, successful women. I respect this 10 fold. It would be so easy for women to let their egos get the best of them and be competitive and jealous towards each other, but she does not seem intimidated or threatened by another woman’s success. She may even be inspired by it. She is also very bright, dresses in a way that is sexy, yet not overtly so, and moves to the beat of her own drum. I have not always been a Tay Tay die-hard/Swifty, but I have to say that I have noticed her a lot in the media lately and the way she caries herself, shows integrity, takes risks, values her fans and their undying loyalty to her, and realizes the importance of the women in her life really speaks to me. Not to mention the girl can dress…

(I have a lot of favorites #sorrynotsorry)
