  • I don’t get invested in celebrity romances, but I hope Taylor’s breakup doesn’t mean she never returns to doing interesting music with Aaron Dessner and the like of those 2 albums. There’s a million overproduced glossy pop artists out there who can do the thing she usually does. Those albums were actually worth a listen for something different.

  • Tay-Tay had another breakup after 6 years? Looks like a double album is due!
