It’s not directly affiliated with Kendrick Lamar but it was inspired by him after his recent trip to a Tech High School in Jersey.
I have maintained for years that if you embed a musician in a classroom or in this case, give a scholarship inspired by an artist, students are guaranteed to succeed! Why? When you believe in music the way some of us do, you would never be able to live with yourself hearing a song by that artist and knowing you screwed up the chance of a lifetime! Every time you were in a store or in a club or how about if your friend was like, “I just found this artist I love!” your heart would sting. A constant reminder of how you let that artist down and yourself and that would be the worst. So you wouldn’t, you WOULD succeed… because guilt. 🙂
Taylor is a consumate professional. A calclated business woman who recently owned/branded one of her gauche dance moves, “The Mom-Croon”…so one can only assume that the asynchronous swivel motion at the :22 mark was probably planned and there wasn’t a lot of eye contact between Beck and Taylor so you know it was well-rehearsed. So what to name it?
The Swivel Pointer?
The Suave Swivel?
The Round and Round Get Down?
Btw, I can’t fault Swifties for fangirling because I’m definitely a “Vinnie”. The way Annie/St. Vincent shreds and struts?!?!
To be fair, if you got the chance to ride a real hoverboard, would you want to get off? Wiz “Marty McFly” Khalifa didn’t either…only problem? he’s not Michael J. Fox and Emmett Brown was no where to be found. Next thing you know he’s pinned on the ground by a bunch of cops.
