So Taylor Swift has become Fully Tabloid. I guess it's her choice. Or Maybe Not.

Taylor Swift's new single What You Made Me Do has broken all sorts of records. In a way, I do like the song. But in another way, I really can't hide my disappointment.

This is the end of the Old Taylor, the serious musician. As Taylor herself says in the song, the Old Taylor is dead. Long live tabloid Taylor, who will feed the public's every need for obsessing with celebrity feuds! I still can't believe she gave into that!

But then I guess it's her choice. You can't stop people from doing what they want.

Or maybe not. Because, the tough reality is that, if you want to stay on top of the music chart game, then you need lots of attention and popularity. In times like these, how else is anyone going to get that except by going fully tabloid? I mean, many people don't even listen to the full song nowadays. How can a serious musician compete with a tabloid celebrity in the popularity game?

p.s. I would like to see Taylor Swift run for president some day. That way, we'll surely get lots of debate about what 'I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me, I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams' really means.
