13 Things I Can Say That Taylor Swift Can’t Even Though We Are the Same Age

Taylor Swift's new album, 1989, came out on October 27th. It was a very Monday feeling Monday so I ran to my local Target, bought the deluxe version, and have been blasting Taylor's album during my commute for the past two weeks. One of the first things that struck me about 1989, other than how catchy it was, was how Taylor reminisces about Polaroids. (Fun fact: the deluxe album gives you a random pile of Polaroids "from Taylor" to enjoy.) ...more

Something For The Weekend, Sir?

From my blog Take It Easy posted 8/11/2014It's the weekend! (in case you hadn't noticed - no need to thank me, it's all part of the service!) As it's a time for most of us to relax and recharge the batteries after the trials and tribulations of the working week, I thought I'd try to do nothing more today than entertain you.

3 Lessons Entrepreneurs Can Learn from Taylor Swift at the 2014 Grammys

How swift was that? The 56th annual Grammys seemed to happen so fast, yet I couldn’t still forget how Taylor Swift rocked the night away. I’m not an avid fan neither a hater – but her music somehow inspires me personally. It was just personal until I read a lot of news about her manners during the event. I missed the whole show! So, knowing that the internet is the only possible way for me to watch it (or at least know the winners), I turned to my Twitter. And yes, there was Taylor Swift all over it, plus Madonna and the other showstoppers....more

Camille Paglia Thinks Katy Perry Is Ruining Women: I Sincerely Disagree

The past week has been a-buzz with Katy Perry’s proclamation in her acceptance speech of Billboard’s Woman of The Year Award that she is “not a feminist” followed up by Camille Paglia’s scathing article in The Hollywood Reporter blaming Perry, Taylor Swift and Hollywood for ruining women. While I felt disappointed that Perry made it a point to distance herself from being a “feminist,” I also felt the outrage over her decision to do so had been unfairly disproportionate to the act and perhaps more destructive to “the movement” than Perry’s statement....more
