I’m just curious as to how many people here feel like a lot of Taylor’s fans place her on a pedestal, and also whether or not they think that is a healthy thing?
Not trying to spark a heated argument, but I’d welcome a lively debate on the subject. Feel free to either Ask, DM, or just reblog your thoughts.
Ok, seriously, why haven’t I seen any rampant speculation and/or conspiracy theories regarding butterflies yet when it’s so utterly obvious?
Honestly? I’d probably hate it and wouldn’t even consider buying the album if she went that route.
I mean, it’s ok if it’s only one track or maybe even two, but you couldn’t pay me enough, much less ask me to fork out money to listen to an entire album of full on bubblegum-smacking, finger-in-hair-twirling, dramatic-eye-rolling pop music. Even if it is Taylor Swift.
We split up Taylor’s fan mail into three different things: people that love her, people that are dying and people who want to chain her up in the basement.
I am currently working hard to finish my new album. I cannot reveal any details yet. But for sure it the favorite thing I have done in my whole life, more than the previous ones. Perhaps, between October and November would be the right time to release it.
I can’t see this being true if she’s trying for any Grammys. If she releases fourth quarter the album isn’t eligible for submission until 2016, which was the issue with Red.(via thistaylorswiftsituation)
There was nothing wrong with the release date for Red from where I’m sitting.
This debate has been hashed out and then rehashed so many times it isn’t funny, but let me spell it out for the record yet again.
Taylor’s album debut schedule is as follows:
Taylor Swift - October 24th, 2006 Fearless - November 11th, 2008 Speak Now - October 25th, 2010 Red - October 22nd, 2012
There is no proof to suggest that she won’t stick to the same schedule with the new album, and for good reason.
For starters, this allows her to release a couple of singles prior to the September 30th cutoff for Grammy eligibility, so she can compete for awards in the single of the year categories come 2015. Likewise, the album itself, plus any singles released after September 30th, would be eligible for awards in 2016.
Taylor could deviate from the schedule for her new album, but that would preclude her from any Grammy nominations in 2016 unless she decides to start doing non-album releases, which I don’t see happening.
