Being a giant pop star and all, Taylor Swift is a pretty polarizing person, though I never quite understood why. Maybe I’m partial because I love her music, but, even taking that out of the picture, she’s pretty amazing. She writes her own songs, single-handedly fought for Apple to pay artists during their new free streaming period, routinely sticks up for fans who are bullied online, and even has her own holiday: Swiftmas.
But, back to the music. Like Eminem, I have always respected her raw honesty in her music. Instead of bowing her head to the tabloids and the rumors, she just spits out hit after hit after hit about love, pain, friends, foes, success, and failures. From her slew of wildly successful albums, these are my 10 favorite lyrics.
