Blind Item #10

This A+ list singer has already been losing fans because of her dedication to solely boosting her bottom line and brand. She is not making any new friends with her cash grab from fans. She is throwing away her career by being the most greedy singer on the planet.

Is was so nice when she went off the radar for awhile. Its funny her and Kim KTrash hate each other, they are basically one and the same.

Cookie said...

Taylor. no question.

sandybrook said...

Maybe that's why they hate each other they don't have to self-loath they can re-direct the hate elsewhere?

She23 said...

Very insightful.

anndie said...

What fans has she lost? The ones who helped break the vevo and youtube records? (This was after the boosts things came out and yes there was some upset but everyone got over it). You can't do that with a shrinking fanbase, especially after the boosts were adjusted to allow for more free activities.

So this is about a week to old and is no longer true.

LaLaLa said...

How is this a blind? It's basically an opinion you have and you make us guess about whom?

That said, I dislike Tay Tay as much as the next person (probably more). Can't really blame her for building her brand though...

anndie said...

And this blind just highlights no matter what she does, like never charging for meet and greets even doing a 13 hour m&g with no breaks, while other artists charge hundreds for a quick handshake, people just want to make her a villian.

Dislike her and not listen to her music all you want, but never doubt her devotion to her fans.

2 Taylor Swift blinds in a day? What happened, Enty?

Joel Theriot said...

Yeah, this one is a head scratcher in terms of making any kind of, well, sense.

Smash said...

Eh at least Taylor has talent.

Yaya said...

well if she broke some Youtube records it wasn't because of "fans" per se, more like adults and casual listeners trying to see what all the fuss was about free of charge. Because of streaming she's guaranteed to get a number 1 from this, but the real test will be how long it can stay there. If it peaks for a week than drops like a rock than it can be proven she's lost fans.

Jane31 said...

I thocan get he always said Adele was the one who was greedy and money hungry? I agree it's Taylor but he has revealed blinds about Adele where she's the greedy one?

Jane31 said...

Thought he
Damn

anndie said...

Bruce Springsteen is using verified fan, is he greedy and money hungry? Ed and Kesha used verified fan. Broadway shows, including Hamilton are using verified fan. The Mayweather Mcgregor fight used verified fan. 21 Pilots too.

But Taylor gets called money hungry. This just makes me laugh because that is what Taylor's album is about.

Guesser said...

This blind was brought to you by Katy Perry and Kimye.

KLLcoolhay said...

NONE of the above people do the 'boosts' aspect except taylor. your observation means nothing.

AMartel said...

It's one of those "wish fulfillment" blinds.

anndie said...

And the fact that the free boosts are extremely easy to do and people are reporting they already in the hundreds just from those.

Bend3r said...

Is giving a boost to someone who buys your album or some merchandise such a horrible thing?

Monica Teasdale said...

The Gags

Megalomania is an ugly mental illness said...

Her team also uses bots to up views on videos. ( Google helps explain that practice) She also buys up her own music on iTunes because she's rich as hell. Helps get that ever important top iTunes spot.

when closets drive ppl to insanity said...

Tater tot swifty dressed 8 of her femme male dancers in I love tswift shirts. 8 dancers for her 8 fake pr beardings/ relationships. Is she trying to out them? The hell?

Nazis love Taylor said...

Singing out of tune and Ed Sheeran secretly writing all her most praised albums? Are those considered talents? Not taking responsibility for her elaborate lies, media manipulation, deception and actions. A 27 year old woman who still acts like spoiled rich mean girl teenager. Also the Nazis love Taylor isn't even a joke. She has never spoken out against the fact that she has a ton of alt right literal Nazis as fans. They see her as the ultimate aryan princess. Since she won't speak out against Trump I can see why the anti Semitic, sexist, anti gay, anti immigrant, anti black, anti poor people Nazis love her.

anndie said...

I just read an article about Ed's attempt and scalpers still got through. They cancelled 50,000 tickets that were put up immediately on stubhub, offered them to other verified fans and those were immediately put up on stubhub. So this is the next level to block scalpers by making people who want to buy tickets to interact long term as a fan.

OKay said...

Okay, Taylor, we get it. You're a fabulous person. Now kindly fuck off and go away, 'mkay?

2fab4U said...

There's building a brand and there's being s stuck up greedy lying bitch who everyone secretly loathes.

Dear Taylor stop copying Beyoncé said...

Amy Zimmerman at thedailybeast has a great article about Nazi men and their unbridled love of pure aryan goddess Taylor Swift. ( their own words on their evil propaganda sites). instead of coming out against this ms. Swift choses to continue to attack her peers in the industry and continues to cry victim. She reminds me of those repeating stories of white women who murder their own kids and then blame it on some nefarious hulking " black man " secure in their knowledge that society will believe them and coddle them as ultimate porcelain "victim"

meh said...

My dream is she goes to perform at the Grammys and half the audience gets up to use the bathroom when she starts singing.

Effie said...

Does Beyoncé have any friends? I've always wondered. She seems very lonely.

Random 101 said...

The jealousy and insecurity Taytay seems to get is astounding.
That song that everyone has gone and on about looks like she is MAKING FUN OF HERSELF -much like "Blank Space" was a parody about her!! Now she cannot make fun of herself?? Cannot talk about how much drama her life is or has?? Show me one thing in that song that is a lie!!
As for the buy stuff to get ahead in line. Whats wrong with that??? Any Swifty that buys merchandise would want to get something else as a bonus. Superfans need to be rewarded. It makes sense for die hard fans. The ones who are not are the ones who are crying. STFU!!

Evee said...

Queens of the Stone Age also did this recently, it was a way for them to try and guarantee that actual fans got tickets. Can't say it worked very well to be fair, there was a s-tshow with the codes and the most intimate date on their UK tour was sold out before tickets even went on general sale.

cebii said...

The video was self-depricating. She was making fun of herself and the various stages of her reputation. It doesn't make any difference what she does anyway, lots of people are going to find reasons to hate her. It would be nice if she made social and political statements. I would really like that. I'd also like it if she came out of the closet, but she wants to play arenas, and losing that is a huge risk if she comes out.
Also, the video was made for her fans. Every second was stuffed full of easter eggs that only serious fans will notice or understand.

kaylor4eva said...

TOTALLY AGREE.

TellMeLies said...

Excellent article condemning Taylor today. Here is a perfect excerpt that directly corresponds to the blind

"The Swift takeover has already begun with a few key sponsorship deals. She's partnered with Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan to encourage fans to participate in "boost activities" that improve their place in line for concert tickets. But in "a really fun way." These boost activities, of course, require pledging loyalty to her #squad, typically in the form of cash. Fans can purchase t-shirts and gold snake rings or pre-order the album to swear their allegiance to Lord Taylor. She is also doing a deal with UPS to make sure people buy physical copies of the album. Target is also offering an exclusive version of the album which includes copies of two collectible magazines."

Meh said...

Thank you person who works for tater tots pr team. You are doing a wonderful job monitoring social media activities pertaining to your boss. Don't forget to treat yourself to a latte at lunchtime.

Bey forever said...

So Taylor has alot of the same imagery that Beyonce uses in her vids. The dark snakes, throne and whatnots. I am patiently waiting for white people to begin attacking her endlessly for being "illuminati ".

Dannette said...

Nothing but contempt for gaylor shills

Dannette said...

There's building a brand and there's shoving it down everyone's throats

My My said...

So many mean and hateful people here. How very sad.

Ani said...

How much more political do people want -- Taylor performed at the 2008 Republican National Convention. You know, the one where John McCain introduced us to Sarah Palin.

zerooptions said...

I used to like "Taylor" guitars until they put out the "Taylor Swift" crap model.
I'll never touch one again

Faith said...

Imma say Beyonce, she needs money if all that crap bout Tidal and owing money is correct.

FrenchToast said...

Taylor and the "boost" points that you get if you buy her merch. Boost points get you ahead of the line to buy tour tickets.
