whoa! i'm surprised by the taylor swift opinion. could you go more in depth as to why you think that? i'm curious to know. (if you aren't comfortable with explaining, you totally don't have to)

dudexpal:

no it’s totally fine!

before anyone comes into my ask box calling me fake i’ve seen taylor swift three times in concert because, generally, i enjoy her songs (though i am not impressed by her new album so far). okay anyway.

here are the positives: taylor pretty much self-manages. she’s incredibly smart, business savvy, and she pays attention to the fandom and industry trends around her. she makes money! and she’s really good at it!

what i don’t like is that she capitalizes on her fans’ ideals to create a hit song/record/whatever. for example, as of right now she’s really into feminism and being independent and celebrating womanhood which like, is great yk she probably is “learning” and “growing up” to some extent but if you look at what she’s actually DONE instead of just listening to her talk about it in interviews i really don’t see any progression in her behavior. so she calls out amy and tina for putting other women down right? great. but then why is she still making a song that focuses on her “feud” with katy perry???? what happened to her “not wanting to put other women down?” she wants to leave boys behind? awesome! but wait, why are there like five songs for haylor on the album? they “”“”“dated”“”“” for like three months, two years ago. like, it should have been /let go/.

she also has made it a point recently to say that calling her out for writing about exes is “sexist.” this i don’t understand either because, if im speaking in terms of the examples SHE USED, ed sheeran DID get a lot of flack for “don’t” (if i remember correctly, people compared him to taylor swift herself) and bruno mars is always pretty vague when it comes to his lyrics although I know he’s been referred to as misogynistic. so like?? taylor, please get better examples because i’m lost as to what point you’re making here.

ALSO i think it’s important to point out that it’s FINE(!!!) to talk about exes and past lovers in songs, like, that’s what most music is based off of. what’s NOT fine is when taylor whines about how people draw these connections in her music and subsequently call her out for being fake as hell when, if you listen to her songs, there are VERY SPECIFIC easter eggs (and clues in her ACTUAL lyric books) that are MOST DEFINITELY written in the songs so fans can speculate on her previous relationships. and yk like i get it!!! this is her thing, her schtick. she dates people for the papers and both parties get publicity; she gets a song out of it, her boyfriend of the season gets talked about for the next five years, and they both make money. that is all fine and dandy and i am a-okay with how the industry works. what i don’t like is how she just doesn’t own up to it. literally, i would like her so much more if she just said, “yes i write about all my relationships and I make it very obvious. my life is an open book and fans appreciate it.”

on that note i would also like her to personally thank harry for her “successful” image change. if you don’t think haylor wasn’t a completely calculated move in order to make her image more independent and “grown up” then i don’t know what to say to you. also out of the woods 100% uses her weird manipulative psychology methods to simultaneously make herself the victim (as per usual) while also making it seem like she’s taking the high road. 

IN SUMMARY, taylor’s songs and experiences don’t come from a genuine place because she is not a genuine person. this is a game to make money and she’s winning.

Absolutely talented person. Awesome hairdo, right? I was here in LA and I got a call, “hey, you wanna go to the studio and do some writing?” and this and that, and I say, “yeah, of course, of course.” And they were like, “what do you think of Harry Styles being in on the writing session?” And I said, “yeah, why not? You know, let’s give it a shot.” ‘Cause I’d only heard good things about Harry from other people that I knew. I was curious, I was like “yeah, let’s give it a shot and see what happens.” Because, look, at the end of the day if you have a bad day in the studio it’s just one day. He was great, honestly. We got in the studio, he was really respectful and he was nice. I sat down at the piano and he’s over there, you know, he’s standing next to me and what not and we’re all, kind of, throwing ideas out. I sang an opening line and he immediately followed it up with another line. And I thought, “oh, look what we have here. Yeah, yeah, this guy’s gonna bring it today.” So, a few hours later we pretty much had the majority of a song completed. A song I think sounds beautiful, it’s a special song. It’s called “Not Our Fault” and I think it’s a winner. It’s about… if it doesn’t work out sometimes you can’t necessarily just blame it on yourselves, you know, sometimes it’s what’s going on around you. Sometimes it’s other things that have nothing to do with the two people involved, those factors that you can’t control. It touches on that type of subject. It’s a way of saying you’re giving up, but it’s not necessarily you’re giving up because you don’t love each other. —Gavin DeGraw on Harry x (via quitespecial)

Title: You Are the Moon That Breaks the Night
Author: supernope
Rating: Teen and up
Relationship: Harry/Louis
Word Count: 4,170
Summary: Louis does not understand the art of selecting a pumpkin, Harry discovers, and he has to give him a hands-on tutorial that involves way too much touching for such a public, kid-friendly place. Harry wants so many pumpkins that they end up making it into a contest to see who can choose the best ones, both drifting from pumpkin pile to hay bale, turning pumpkins over and pressing on the bottoms like they’re pumpkin experts.
