Taylor Swift has been known to date numerous Hollywood hunks and then turn her breakups and heartache into chart-topping hits such as “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” While she is extremely popular and one of the few artists in today’s world who can still sell albums, Swift has her critics.

In the radio interview, Swift made it clear how she feels about this kind of?criticism:

“…I think it’s a very sexist angle to take.”

“No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars.”

She is actually quite accurate. I think Ed and Bruno are, like Taylor, brilliant songwriters and artists. Ed’s recent hit “Don’t” talks about a former fling and tons of male songs discuss love, breakups, cheating exes, etc. I have not, though, heard the criticism that Swift gets levied at her male counterparts.

I myself have not been?critical of Taylor’s song choices but of how the media and public is quick to label?artists like Miley Cyrus a “slut” or “promiscuous” even though Taylor Swift has seemed to jump from man to man more rapidly than most in the music business. Again, this is not a jab at Taylor because she can do what she wants but just an observation. Her “good girl” image has basically remained in tact with the public at large despite her numerous relationships and alleged hookups.

I think it is an interesting dichotomy that Swift has created. She is loved by millions and millions around the globe and still has a large youth fan base. On the other hand, certain critics think she unfairly turns her personal life into millions. Regardless of how you feel about Taylor Swift, I think it is fair to say that she wouldn’t be getting this criticism if she was Tyler Swift instead.
