Exclusive: Taylor Swift’s 2017 Album Is All About #BlackLivesMatter

Exclusive: Taylor Swift’s 2017 Album Is All About #BlackLivesMatter

Taylor Swift may have been accused of being racist after her videos for “Shake it Off” and “Wildest Dreams,” but she’s going to prove that she is “down with the bros” on her new album. Pop Music Scandal has learned that Taylor Swift is recording an album with themes related to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Swift doesn’t plan to say “Black Lives Matter” directly, but the themes of the movement cover the album. We are told that the album is similar to Bruce Springsteen’s September 11, 2001-themed The Rising, which didn’t mention the disastrous day directly. Swift plans to recruit a bunch of rappers on the album, including Eminem, Vanilla Ice, Darrell McDaniels (Run DMC), Mike D (Beastie Boys), and even Macklemore. She is seeking help from Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar as well.

Swift may turn her new album project into a visual album like Beyonce did with Lemonade. Only two song titles have been revealed so far. “Colored People of Color” has something to do with people who use the term “Colored People” to describe people of color. The other song, “Ode To The Repressed” may be the first single. It has a sort of rock vibe to it. So far, there isn’t much of Swift’s country trademark on her new album.

Swift is trying to keep this album as private as possible. We are told that it will come as a surprise release. Swift wants to release the album this summer, but her record company Big Machine Records wants to release it closer to the holiday season to attract more sales. This album could either be a real smash or a real joke.

Lady Gaga Allegedly Called One Of Her Gay Blackface Slaves The ‘N’ Word

Lady Gaga Allegedly Called One Of Her Gay Blackface Slaves The ‘N’ Word

After our article about Lady Gaga posing with men in blackface appeared earlier this week, Lady Gaga has tried to do everything she can to deflect  from it. She knows our story has made the rounds on Twitter.

Pop Music Scandal did some research and came in contact with Adalrich Schulz, the “slave” on her right. We verified it was him, but he only agreed to talk if we don’t show his real picture. Schulz revealed that the photo was taken in 2010, not 2011. But he and his friend weren’t just two men in blackface that cornered Lady Gaga for a photo; GAGA ACTUALLY HAD THEM PUT ON THEIR COSTUMES AND MAKEUP.

“She said she wanted to show how both black people and gay people are repressed by society. She was going to use the picture for some type of PSA or magazine shoot that never happened,” Schulz says,” adding that Gaga was high out of her mind when telling them about her plans.

It looks like posing with gay guys in Blackface is really the way to promote tolerance, AT LEAST FOR GAGA. But it gets worse — Schulz says she called him the N word.

“She told me that I’m her “Ni**a. She was obviously joking around, but didn’t seem to have enough self awareness about how offensive she was acting. She was clearly high and drunk that night,” Schulz reveals, adding that she referred to herself as the “Wonder Woman of the gay community.”

Schulz says he felt really bad about letting Gaga dress him as a gay slave weeks later. He was a huge fan, would do anything to meet her, and this was an opportunity he couldn’t resist.

“I’m not racist at all. I just didn’t think clearly. With the #BlackLivesMatter movement gaining ground over the past few years, I’ve felt even more bad about what I did. But there were no harmful intentions,” Schulz reveals.

One week later, Schulz and his friends received calls from Gaga’s lawyers threatening them in every way possible if they talk about what happened that night. But Schulz says he can no longer remain silent.

“Lady Gaga supposedly preaches equality and tolerance. But using blackface to allegedly promote gay rights was disgusting and exploitative. I can no longer keep my mouth shut about it,” Schulz angrily states.

What’s next for Lady Gaga — WEARING A BURQA to promote FEMINISM? Oh, wait.

The main picture says it all. I don’t know the story behind the picture. Some say that Gaga was drunk when the picture was taken in 2011, but that DOESN’T EXCUSE IT! What is true is that with all the racial disharmony that has been going on in the world, the photo (which is legit — not photoshopped) has made waves over the past year, despite efforts by team Gaga to repress it.

Pop Music Scandal can confirm that Lady Gaga has been SCARED TO DEATH that the photo would go viral — so much, that she has paid a lot of money to keep sites such as TMZ from publishing the photo. She also decided to become a #BlackLivesMatter activist in order to deflate the criticism from her racist past.

Now that Joanne isn’t receiving the response it should, Gaga is using #BlackLivesMatter to shield herself from criticism of her album. This is how Gaga went after a New York Times critic who gave the album a mediocre review.

The song she is referring to not only has cheesy lyrics, but never actually mentions Trayvon Martin. Pop Music Scandal can reveal that “Angel Down” has only become a #BlackLivesMatter song at Interscope‘s request — they believe it will help sell more albums and that it will help manipulate critics into giving the album a good review. If critics don’t praise the album, they’ll be targeted as “racist” by Team Gaga. An Interscope employee tells us that Gaga will continue to target journalists — especially if they aren’t Black — to deflect any criticism from her album.

Meanwhile, the payola with Billboard continues as they have published more then 10 front-page articles on her in the past couple days. Billboard‘s review of Joanne, which hasn’t been published as of Thursday night, was written by Lady Gaga’s PR team and will be given a Billboard author’s credit. Pathetic.
