Taylor Swift recently played three shows in Nashville, one even went on in the pouring rain! What a rockstar she is, whether you like her music or not. A lot of fans were able to get tickets after waiting hours and hours and hours and…. hours. Some people weren’t able to get tickets, obviously. There are only so many seats in Nissan Stadium, after all. So the shows came and went and then this story came out in the local Nashville news. An assisstant principal wrote Taylor a letter weaving in a lot of her song titles.
The gist of the letter, which goes on for a couple more paragraphs, was asking Taylor to come visit Hendersonville High School, where Taylor attended at some point in her high school career. Sounds innocent enough, right? But the writer made a major error. In the very first paragraph she said that she had tickets to Taylor’s show but sold them. I’m actually ticked off at this woman because she could’ve seen Taylor but didn’t. She made a conscious choice to make some money off the fame of Taylor Swift. That’s fine, but next she has the audacity to turn around and, after cashing in on the tickets, beg Taylor to do something for her. Now she just sounds like a selfish leech. I’m not at all surprised that Taylor didn’t show up to the school like a princess on a white horse. I wouldn’t have either… except maybe to ask the woman in-person how much she made from the tickets she would’ve, could’ve, should’ve, used. I’d ask her quietly, of course. Then I’d go hug all the students and be the highlight of their high school year while that woman knows that I know that she knows that I know.
Speaking of knowing things… Did you know Taylor was in a music video WAY before she was famous? Make a guess on which video it was then click here for the answer!
This assistant principal woman took advantage of Taylor and then wanted to double down by taking advantage again! Asking Taylor to change her schedule was a selfish idea. Having her show up at the school wasn’t for the kids, you know. It was so the woman would feel happy about herself and be liked by the students at the school. Nice try, Teach! Better luck next time and a piece of advice, don’t mention the way you used someone then ask the person you used to go way out of their way to be used by you again. That’s what a toxic relationship looks like, right? You should be embarrassed but soon you’ll get better if you can just shake it off.
