Think about this next time you decide to call Taylor Swift a bitch.
I like the one where a guy with cancer asked her to be his prom date and she said no, because she wanted him to be hers.
Or when 4chan tried to troll Taylor by sending her to a school for the deaf. her record label disqualified them due to the prank, but instead of leaving them high and dry, she donated 10K to them and offered any student who wanted one an all access ticket to her next show.
idk man, like people can take issues with her lyrics or whatever, but she’s probably a better person than most of the people complaining about her.
