With the recent release of recording artist, Taylor Swift’s latest single and video, an odd outcry has been hear over liberal media outlets. They want Swift to denounce President Donald Trump, for the sake of her career.
Swift released her new album cover for “Reputation” in August, along with a video to accompany a single off the album called, “Look What You Made Me Do.” However, liberal listeners aren’t happy with Swift because she chooses to remain publicly apolitical.
Katie Cunningham of the Australian pop culture website Junkee has been particularly vocal about Swift’s refusal to pick a political side. She wrote a hit piece titled, “If Taylor Swift Wants To Address Her Bad Reputation, She Should Start By Condemning Donald Trump.”
In the article, Cunningham writes that Swift’s career has been on the downturn ever since the election of 2016 when she refused to campaign for Hillary Clinton and liberal ideals like her fellow pop-stars did.
“If Taylor Swift wants her career back, there’s one thing she has to do: renounce Donald Trump,” Cunningham concludes.
Similarly, Amy Zimmerman of The Daily Beast hypothesized that Taylor’s problems stemmed from the fact that she uses the media speculation of her political allegiances to hype up her album sales. She concludes that if Taylor wants her fans to trust her again she needs to speak up and formally denounce the president.
“Swift can complain about her mangled reputation all she wants, but the facts speak for themselves. The pop singer, while inarguably talented, often comes across as highly secretive at best and deceitful at worst. If Taylor Swift actually wants us to trust her, she could start by publicly announcing that she didn’t vote for Donald Trump — even if that means pissing off some of her fans,” Zimmerman wrote.
“Until Swift is ready to let go of her perfectly controlled (albeit compromised) reputation, the pop star’s vision of glowing headlines and a fresh new start will stay a fantasy,” Zimmerman added.
However, it seems that her career is doing just fine but don’t tell Twitter that because even its users have picked up the liberal media bait.
Hi, I’m Taylor Swift. You may know me from my being a feminist who has yet to speak out against Trump. Anyway, I have a new song out. Bye! pic.twitter.com/KKMsesZpKU

The problem with these liberal snowflakes is that they don’t seem to understand that political choices are personal. Whether Taylor Swift voted for and/or supports President Donald Trump is her business and her business only.
These Hollywood celebrities seem to think that because they work in a liberal industry, everyone who creates art has to be liberal. And not just in a quiet way; they have to be outspoken about it. However, it is clear to see that we absolutely love when celebrities do not use their over-hyped voices to try and push their agendas.
Listen to the people. The people do not want politics in their art, and at least Taylor Swift seems to understand that.
