Look, clearly the cat would rather be anywhere else. This proves that holding out is possible – that you don’t HAVE to give into taylor’s charm. Even if you live in her house. EVEN if you have to depend on her for your daily servings of cat chow. You can resist the pull of indoctrination. You don’t have to have #SquadGoals!
But if you have them, go for it. I gave in AGES ago. Check out Tay’s latest tracks on Today’s Hits!
Listen, I know it’s only Tuesday, but this might be the cutest thing you see all week. Over the weekend, 3 generations of ladies went to see Taylor Swift at the Nashville stop of her 1989 World Tour.
The tickets were purchased a year in advance, not even knowing about special guests. My mom has had a lifelong dream of going to a Stones concert, but due to a serious health issue this past year she missed their tour. It was upsetting to her and a big disappointment.
She flew to Nashville 2 days in advance to rest up for the big night, we had floor tickets and so she was on her feet much of the time.
Needless to say, when Mick came out it was like he walked on stage just for her.
So we know Grandma is into both Taylor and The Stones. But does her Granddaughter even know who Mick Jagger is?
She did not and was confused why grandma was going crazy. But we’ve been sharing the Stones with her and she “likes how they dance”.
Granny did get control of herself in time to enjoy the performance in this second video where she’s clapping and singing along.
Taylor saw the videos too, and got to give herself a nice pat on the back
So now we know why Taylor has been bringing all of these older guests up on stage with her – she’s trying to lock down that key Grandma demographic. Gotta love Tay, always thinking about how to make the brand bigger.

The last time I was in a corn maze it was the middle of the day and I was truly at the sweaty panic stage because I was so lost. Fortunately I did find my way out after saying F it and cutting thru rows you weren’t supposed to only to be greeted by kids who thought I was a complete weirdo. So if you do happen to hit up Summers Farm in Frederick, Md, and you reach the sweaty panic lost stage either sing your favorite Taylor song loudly until someone finds you or look all “Blank Space” crazy when you crash down corn walls.
When was the last time someone invested 8 MONTHS into making something for you? besides a baby?? I can confidently say “never” but I’m not Taylor Swift. Check out the backstory here
One can only hope two things, 1. Taylor hires Jadda, “The Mysterious Knitter” to work for her fashion line, LEI and 2. That we all will one day find one person to love/adore/cherish us as much as Swifties love/adore/cherish Taylor.
What’s worse than spending a week pelted by dust and wind and surrounded by EDM fans that haven’t showered the entire time? Knowing you might be there with celebrities who are trying to “discover themselves”.
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?!?!
Taylor took to Tumblr to explain, “The Mom-Croon – (noun) A dance move invented at the 2014 Grammy Awards. To sway, perform, and sing along to a song in an extremely emotional or sentimental way, possibly incorporating hand gestures. Eyes closed, lost in the music. The way your mom gets taken away by a tune from her high school days, glass of red wine in hand, shuffling around the room as her teenage kids roll their eyes in disdain. Cynics may judge the Mom-Crooners (MC’s as they are commonly referred to in the dance world) as it is a form of dance only perfected by those willing to be absolutely swept away by the feels you get when you hear a certain song. Those who know how to Mom Croon cannot see the eye rolls of haters. They have reached a level of musical transcendence that is hater-proof. Once you perfect the mom croon, you are truly free.
Used in a sentence: “Oh look, Taylor’s being embarrassing again– just mom-crooning away in the corner by herself because Sometimes by Britney Spears came on. Oh God. Now she’s crying.”*
Aw yisssss. Bring it ON.
Oh and don’t forget to keep Party Hits locked, cocked, loaded, it’s my dance battle station of choice
Good luck and lets go get ’em!
**I’m going to assume you can Mom-Croon with or without tears…preferably without.
