Talk real slow, Taylor Nation

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s grateful for all nice feedback he gets about his amateurish writing, you’d think we’d run out of things to blog about. Actually, I run out of time to blog about everything that is out there and I have to be selective. Sometimes, there’s more to blog than meets the time.

Dallas News has an excellent review of the entire concert by music critic Mario Tarradell. Now this is the way to do a review, describing the concert at length. You won’t agree with everything that the author writes. Although he obviously enjoys the concert, there are things he doesn’t like. That’s fine. But it’s a very honest critique and it is overall positive of the Sparkly Dressed’s performance at the Cowboys Stadium last night, May 25. You can read the entire article at Dallas News.

And speaking about writing about the Enchantress, you should check out this excellent post on the Dallas Observer. Author¬†Kiernan Maletsky takes us through the basics of how not to be patronizing or sexist just because the performer happens to be young and female. It also denotes how male singers who have a lot of heartbreak songs don’t get the same treatment. Well worth a read. The article is not so subtly named,¬†How Not to Write About Taylor Swift.

Here’s the Princess in Red performing the secret song last night,¬†Our Song. This blast of the past goes back to her country roots. The song was originally Taylor’s entry for a talent show in her freshman year at high school. It was included on her self-titled album and released as her third single back in August 22, 2007 by Big Machine Records. You can read more about¬†Our Song in wikipedia.

Speaking about clips, Entertainment Tonight managed to capture a quick non-reaction from T-Swizzle backstage at the Billboard Awards regarding lip-synching. Not worth a whole article, so I’m just dropping it here.
