I like Taylor swift as an elegant girl. I like her simple style in fashion and I like to watch her in the talkshow programs. Also, I am interested in her vedio clips. they are so attractive and funny. However, I don’t like her song so much. Their words are not more valuble. I think most her fans are teens. Overall, she seems a nice and humble person.

If a singer sticks to a music style some people may think “He/she should try new things. It’s always the same. I’m bored”, but if a singer changes his/her music some people may say “Why did he/she change? I prefer her/his old style”


Summing up, there will be always people complaining about something. Personally I think that musicians, singers or artist in general should try new things, and explore different styles. That is part of the evolution.

I’ve just watched Taylor swift’s Shake it off and Miley Cyrus Love money party and it struck me who they want to copy – Lady Gaga! But the thing is you watch Lady Gagas clip over and over again, but theirs not even a minute. The bottom line – just be yourself, keep your style, even if it’s quite boring.

She has very special sound and her songs are like a story…and evolved too much wich she as I think  she lost her genres of original country roots.
