Salon’s Kate Harding keeps writing articles I was just about to write (see: Polanski). But I have no internal conflict about Taylor Swift. She is AWESOME and an excellent role model. So is Beyonce, and so is Lady Gaga. The three of them totally own American music right now and are all very Strong Women and they couldn’t be more different. It is a really good time to be a teenage girl or to have a strong inner teenager. You and Taylor are totes separated at birth, btw.
