Hey, you guys remember Taylor Swift?
You remember when she was at the Grammy’s, winning awards for music excellence, yet couldn’t fulfill the very basic requirement of singing on key in front of her peers, who probably could? You’re way too judgmental. She’s the voice of a generation.
This is, unsurprisingly, is according to the head of her record label. Which I can only guess is something like Squinty White-Bread Records. Scott Borchetta raged against the critics trashing his baby, insisting that the ability to communicate complex ideas like princesses, rainbows, and ponies is much preferable to the ability to sing.
She is the voice of this generation. She speaks directly to (her fans), and they speak directly back to her. This is about a true artist and writer and communicator.
It looks like Kanye West has competition for voice of this generation. From none other than the girl he slighted publicly. Borchetta went on to explain that Swift was pitchy because she had problems with her in-ear monitor, which doesn’t explain why she’s been pitchy all the other times I’ve heard her and has the vocal range of a monotone cat.
Jesus Christ, if these are the options for voice of a generation, I volunteer to hit every one in the generation mentioned with a rusty nail, so we don’t suffer the burden of hearing them talk.
