ARE YOU HAPPY NOW, SWIFTIANS? All you Taylor Swift fans flew into a murderous rage and threatened to burn our house down* every time we mentioned that her saccharine sweetness made our teeth ache and our asses fall asleep and now we’re too scared to say anything mean about her!
But we’ll give it a shot.
Look, we don’t actually mind a demure style on a young lady. Anyone who reads us for any length of time will see us praising the ladylike stylings of people like Carey Mulligan or the Fanning sisters all the time. We’re certainly not the types of queens to insist on sequins, tight skirts and Cha Cha heels on every female in our line of sight. The problem we always had with this gal – from a style perspective, at least – wasn’t that she was working a Professional Virgin gig. She would be FAR from the first female entertainer to have such a career hook. No, the problem was that she was so frequently style-less about it. Instead of taking her ladylike cues from some of the masters, she seemed to be taking them from Disney Princesses. She just bored us to the point of irritating us. There’s no other way to put it and you know good and bleeding well that you have your own list of celebrities that cause the same reaction in you. Come now. We’re all friends here. We won’t judge you until you leave the room.
Anyway, this is all prelude to the following shoutout with accompanying neck rolls and snaps up:
