Taylor Swift vs. Adele

Taylor Swift vs. Adele

Like the rest of the world, I’ve been listening to Adele’s new album this week. My early assessment is that I like it, but, man, is that young lady of only 25 years of age worried that she’s one old ass bitch. My thirty-mumbles birthday is next month. I must be a pile of dust in Adele’s eyes.

Last year at this time, I was, like everyone else, mainlining Taylor Swift’s 1989 album, and I couldn’t help but notice a very significant difference between her album and Adele’s. Every Adele song is all about how she ruined things because she was “restless,” usually. Every Taylor song is about how HE (or Katy Perry) ruined things because don’t they realize how great Taylor is?

It prompted me to send this tweet:


Which prompted a few of my friends (@thesideofmyface and @BethySports) to respond with other ways to sum up female singer/songwriters’ perspectives.

Here’s our list (plus a few ones I just came up with) for pre-Thanksgiving shits and giggles.





I’ll add…

Ani: It’s your fault. And the patriarchy’s too, I guess.

Tori: It’s the mermaid’s fault.

Katy: It’s no one’s fault! Sequins!

Fiona: It’s my stupid brain’s fault.

Ariana: It’s the doughnut’s fault.

Kelly: It’s my parents’ fault.

Rihanna: It’s that bitch’s fault.
