Music without a doubt is one of the best things created by humans. But..unfortunetly music has fallen drastically over the years. Taylor Swift is a perfect example. She's average at its best, sorry. I play guitar and her guitar playing skills are very basic, dull and average. Her singing is not good, not saying it's particularly BAD but it's definetly not good. oh and don't get me started on her music. "she wears short skirts I wear tshirts"? what the fuck is that? a 12 year old could write that.
