She’s lightning on her feet, Taylor Nation.
You can see the adorkable Sparkly Dressed showing off her prowess in the second outtakes clip from the “Shake It Off” music video just released a few hours ago. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who does miss a few beats but eventually catches up and I would do it sooner if you young kids were not always in such a hurry, we have no experience in dance training but we still think Taylor had a couple of moves right. Ok, perhaps not but we love her as a goof. Let’s stop talking and put the video on.
And then there’s this anti-bullying message left by Taylor on ts.hannahw’s Instagram that has been making the rounds around the net.
Reading this made me so sad because I love seeing you in your videos and photos being so happy and wide eyed, like the world isn’t as harsh and unfair as it actually is. I hate thinking about your pretty face covered in tears, but I know why you’re crying because I’ve been in your place. This isn’t a high school thing or an age thing. It’s a people thing. A life thing. It doesn’t stop. It doesn’t end or change. People cut other people down for entertainment, amusement, out of jealousy, because of something broken inside them. Or for no reason at all. It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. They won’t understand you and they won’t understand me. But the only way they win is if your tears turn to stone and make you bitter like them. It’s okay to ask why. It’s okay to wonder how you could try so hard and still get stomped all over. Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing or dancing around to your favorite song. You’re going into high school this week and this is your chance to push the reset button on how much value you give the opinion of these kids, most of whom have NO idea who they are. I’m so proud of you and protective of you because you DO. If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more. Every time someone picks on me, I’ll think of you in the hopes that every time someone picks on you, you’ll think of me… and how we have this thread that connects us. Let them keep living in the darkness and we’ll keep walking in the sunlight.
Forever on your side, Taylor.
