“Why you gotta be so mean?”
She started from the bottom and worked her way up to superstardom. Like these were the venues she used to play at:
She DEFENDS her fans.
And interacts with them online as if they’re friends, not fans:
Her music is good. It’s catchy. It’s smart. It’s relatable. Fans love it. Haters love it. Debate your goldfish.
And she writes her own songs. Like, you’re not gonna tell me these aren’t great lyrics.
She goes out of her way to make everything — her singles, her albums, videos, performances, etc. — a big thing, which is rare these days.
Like, remember when the already-iconic snake videos dropped, marking the beginning of theReputation era?
Big Machine Records
She’s charitable AF.
And she helped propel your fav’s career. I’m talking Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, HAIM, Shawn Mendes, etc. Yup.

She defends other artists:
Like, she gets hate over EVERYTHING. Y’all…………she’s allowed to do a cover of “September.” IT WAS GOOD. If it was anyone else, they’d be praised.
People do covers ALLLL the time, and no one gets think pieces written about them. People just want an excuse to hate on Taylor because she's Taylor Swift.
While she’s not known for tackling all issues, she has spoken out on some very important ones, like sexual assault.
And gun control:
Honestly, most celebs love her, so you’re not cool for hating on her!!! Like please look at who she’s worked with, performed with, taken pics with, and what people say about her when asked in interviews:
In every genre too! Pop, rap, country, EDM, etc. etc. etc. — CELEBS LOVE TAYLOR.

Last but not least, the main reason you should stop hating on her: She’s NOT PERFECT. She hasn’t always used her voice, and she’s been involved in drama. But no one is perfect, and Taylor genuinely is someone who treats her fans and everyone the way they want to be treated — with respect. SO FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO HATE IN 2018, thanks!
