While speaking in a past interview, Taylor Swift highlighted the double standards in the music industry regarding discussions about personal and dating life. She noted that when a man does something, it’s seen as strategic, while a woman doing the same is labeled as calculated. On top of that, men are allowed to react, whereas women are often perceived as overreacting.


”You’re always going to have people going did she write all her own songs talking about your personal life talking about your dating life there’s a different vocabulary for men and women in the music industry right give me an example okay A man does something it’s strategic a woman does the same thing it’s calculated a man is allowed to react a woman can only overreact.”

Swift explained her approach to addressing haters, stating that as long as they keep coming for her, she’ll keep singing to them.

”Why sing to the haters? Well when they stop coming for me, I will stop singing to them. You know people go on and on about how you have to forgive and forget, to move past something, no you don’t. You don’t have to forgive and you don’t have to forget. You can move on without any of those things happening. You become indifferent and then you move on. If something’s toxic, and it’s only ever been that what are you going to do?”

Taylor Swift challenged the notion of needing to forgive and forget, emphasizing that it’s possible to move on without those steps. If something is toxic, Swift advocated for indifference as a means to move forward from it.

Taylor Swift Denied Accusations That She Copied Shake It Off

Taylor Swift has made quite a few hit songs throughout her career and inspired many fans and musicians alike in many ways. Swift was also accused of stealing the lyrics for her hit 2014 track, Shake It Off, which earned her three Grammy nominations.


According to Page Six, Swift decided to address the 2017 lawsuit, which was filed by songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler, who claim Swift stole lyrics from 3LW’s 2001 hit song Playas Gon’ Play to write Shake It Off. As revealed by court documentation reported by Billboard, Swift claimed she had “never heard” the track she is accused of plagiarizing, and said, “the lyrics to ‘Shake It Off’ were written entirely by me.”

In writing the lyrics, I drew partly on experiences in my life and, in particular, unrelenting public scrutiny of my personal life, ‘clickbait’ reporting, public manipulation, and other forms of negative personal criticism which I learned I just needed to shake off and focus on my music.

I recall hearing phrases about players play and haters hate stated together by other children while attending school in Wyomissing Hills, and in high school in Hendersonville.

The first time I ever heard the song was after this claim was made.”

It is highly likely that Taylor Swift is telling the truth, as she has no reason to lift songs when she is perfectly capable of writing her own lyrics. Either way, her Swifties will believe anything she says and that’s never really changing.
