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.

White Supremist Taylor Swift And Her Louisiana Publicity Stunt

White Supremist Taylor Swift And Her Louisiana Publicity Stunt

Welcome to the Clickbait Motel. Taylor Swift is NOT A WHITE SUPREMACIST, but it’s hilarious (admittingly, at her expense) that she has become a target for social justice warriors. It’s crazy how people pick apart her videos in order to come up with some proof that underneath the glitz, she’s actually a Nazi.

Taylor’s temporary (and trust us, it is temporary) downfall is a result of her trying to be a saint, WHICH SHE OBVIOUSLY ISN’T. Taylor Swift also tries to come off as someone who came from nothing and became something. That is false as well.

The website Salon, which seems to be on a mission to destroy Swift’s reputation, did make the point that Swift certainly isn’t an underdog.

“Like a lot of country singers – that’s how she first broke in – Taylor Swift grew up on a farm. It wasn’t a subsistence farm in the rough part of Kentucky but a Christmas-tree farm in Pennsylvania.”

Taylor’s mother worked in finance. Her father was recently a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch. She once told a magazine in her hometown that it mattered what kind of handbag you brought to school.

Like Lady Gaga, Swift tries to pretend that she’s a very nice girl. But behind the scenes, she could be AN ABSOLUTE MONSTER. Most recent is the Kanye West situation, in which Taylor claimed to be a victim of West’s misogynist abuse. However, as Kim Kardashian revealed in her Instagram post, Swift wasn’t quite a victim.

Pop Music Scandal can reveal that Taylor Swift freaked out about the reaction to Kim’s video. She thinks she is “being punished” for something she feels she didn’t do. Swift was advised not to speak much about this, but her team is trying to remake her into a charity princess. After all, it worked for Angelina Jolie. Step one was to have Swift make a one million dollar donation to Louisiana flood victims. Yes, Swift’s donation is helpful, but it’s also a great tax write-off. She is also using the Louisiana flood victims as props to repair her image.

Swift earned such good publicity for her good deed that her public relations team has been extremely busy, contacting all news sources to let them know that Swift just donated $50,000 to a Louisiana food bank. Once again, a great deed. BUT HOW MUCH OF THIS REALLY COMES FROM THE HEART?

Pop Music Scandal can also reveal that Swift desperately wanted to sue Kanye West for illegally recording her phone calls (she would have a good case for it, too), but that she was advised she would just hurt her career further. In the meantime, you can expect Swift to make her charity tour to other places soon. Her public relations team will post pictures of her charity exploits everywhere. It’s all good, just as long as she’s helping instead of killing people.
