My Break-Up Letter To Taylor Swift

I'm sure you've heard by now - T Sweezy is copyrighting ayyythang. I mean EVERYTHING. In case you haven't heard..."this sick beat" and "nice to meet you, where you been?" are off limits. So don't even think about creating a witty t-shirt, coffee mug, or throw pillow with anything Taylor on it. Shoot, she's even mad at her ex-guitar teacher for saying that he taught her!!!! She has had her lawyers send cease and desist letters to Etsy owners selling a variety of Taylor inspired products. She doesn't want anyone "profiting off her life's work". Okay? So, as she has written so many break up songs about her heart wrenching relationships, I wrote a letter about ours.

Dear John Taylor,

I can't believe I'm writing these words to you. I mean, things were fine if we look back to December. We've been together for many years. We've had good times, bad times, heck you were even there for me when I was feeling 22. I'm just disappointed in the way you've been acting and I know that people don't change. I can't stand the hurt any longer. I don't want to sit around and watch you hurt all your fans - the fans that love you, pay $200 to watch you perform in the nose bleed section for a few hours, the fans that think you're so creative that they honor that in their handmade products. You don't want them making money off you? They aren't taking credit for your ever so brilliant lyrics. They're showing appreciation. Let's face it. Nobody is making millions off of mugs with your lyrics on them, okay? So, drop it. Shake it off. Do what you gotta do. Makers gonna make. Haters gonna hate. And you, my dear, are being a hater. What's this I hear about you making up/collaborating with Kanye? Simply disgusting. Sellouts gonna sellout, I guess. Have a great life. You do you, boo boo. I don't need anymore bad blood. In case this wasn't clear - I'm breaking up with you, Taylor and we are never, ever, ever getting back together.

Like ever.

Love Always,


And that folks, is how I really feel. Some parts may have been exaggerated. :)

What do you think of the whole Taylor thing? I'm interested in your opinions!


  1. I've been a fan of Taylor Swift since the beginning, and I've been feeling this way too!

  2. This is great - I love how you encorporated her songs into it! Very clever, Amanda!

  3. AHHH I love you! I was thinking the SAME thing! She is going to lose a lot of fans for her antics. I miss TSwift when she was baking cookies and showed her teardrops on her guitar. Now she is such a diva. She's making Ariana Grande seem normal even.

  4. This is wonderful. I will still ALWAYS love love T Swift...but I think she is becoming too full of herself. I mean seriously!

  5. LOVED THIS haha. Although she IS my style icon ( we literally have the same closet minus name brand in mine and hers is worth like $50,000) I admit this TM craze is insane! As a writer I feel like I understand her choice but its still something kind of elitist in my opinion. Clever letter!

  6. Well when you put it like *that*, maybe I wanna break up with her too!

  7. I completely agree! I like her music, but she is taking it too far. I understand wanting to be paid for your work, but there needs to be a limit to that. She is totally turning into a mini Kanye!!!

  8. This is so disappointing. I've been a long time fan of Taylor Swift, and it's great that she's proud of the work that she does (obviously the majority of the world is), but now she's just getting a bit greedy.

  9. I agree with you. I was a fan, but the past year she ha become a money hungry person. She has become an entertainer I very much dislike. She does a random act of kindness one month, then you find out all the greedy things she does as well. Her new fans can have her....there is nothing sweet about her if you ask me.

  10. I love Taylor but I felt the same way when I heard she trademarked sayings that have been around since almost forever. Sometimes I'm just like "really, Taylor?". She and her PR team are so calculated in everything they do and will do whatever to make that green.

  11. First, I adored her, then I read news about her scandals, then I hated her. But then, I remembered her music is the thing I followed her in the first place. So as long as I found her music good, I listen to it. And I care less about any news about her life.
