“Stop bullying me by publically discussing all the abusive tactics I’ve used on you or I’ll ruin your entire life” is peak rich...

Guys - It’s been announced recently that the American Music Awards will be honoring me with the Artist of the Decade Award at this year’s ceremony. I’ve been planning to perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show. Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I’m not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year. Additionally - and this isn’t the way I had planned on telling you this news - Netflix has created a documentary about my life for the past few years. Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film.

Scott Borchetta told my team that they’ll allow me to use my music only if I do these things: If I agree to not re-record copycat versions of my songs next year (which is something I’m both legally allowed to do and looking forward to) and also told my team that I need to stop talking about him and Scooter Braun.

I feel very strongly that sharing what is happening to me could change the awareness level for other artists and potentially help them avoid a similar fate. The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished.

This is WRONG. Neither of these men had a hand in the writing of those songs. They did nothing to create the relationship I have with my fans. So this is where I’m asking for your help.

Please let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this. Scooter also manages several artists who I really believe care about other artists and their work. Please ask them for help with this - I’m hoping that maybe they can talk some sense into the men who are exercising tyrannical control over someone who just wants to play the music she wrote. I’m especially asking for help from The Carlyle Group, who put up money for the sale of my music to these two men.

I just want to be able to perform MY OWN music. That’s it. I’ve tried to work this out privately through my team but have not been able to resolve anything. Right now my performance at the AMA’s, the Netflix documentary and any other recorded events I am planning to play until November of 2020 are a question mark.

I love you guys and I thought you should know what’s been going on.

Taylor

YOU CANNOT FATHOM JUST HOW PISSED OFF I AM. DAYS OFF FROM YOUR Artist Of The Decade PERFORMANCE AT THE AMAs AND NOW THEY SUDDENLY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOU PERFORMING YOUR OLD STUFF WHEN YOU’VE HAD PERFORMANCES OF THEM ALL YEAR LONG?

This isn’t about peace or reaching an accord. This is a deliberate attack on a hard-working woman who wrote and composed ALL of her own songs. She’s the only person credited on every single song she’s ever put out. She wasn’t given a chance to purchase her Masters Recordings despite having enough money too, because they wanted to leash her and control her entire life.

This is what we fucking mean when we say MEN AIN’T SHIT. These 2 white assholes with no talent in their bodies, spend their days helping to fund the genocide of Yemen, controlling their artists so tightly they threaten sabotage if they don’t keep quiet and do as they are told, and aligning with Trump of all people. Scott in particular is a Republican leaning into a very Nazi-esque way of handling things. Both are trash. Both are problems.

The music industry is a mess and Taylor has been going to bat for artists to be properly compensated for years and is now putting her neck on the line to bring this blackmailing bullshit into the light regardless of their threats against her person.

I don’t give 2 shits if you don’t stan Taylor or don’t vibe with her music or whatever. This isn’t right. This is being done to your fav artists. Most simply don’t have the platform Taylor has built for herself, to be able to speak out. You should all want this to stop.

No, money doesn’t buy you happiness.

But it buys you education.I was always rich enough to go to the library and buy myself whatever book I wanted. I was always rich enough to ask my parents to pay for my subway tickets to get me to a far school I liked instead of a school I could get by foot to. I was always rich enough to know I could attend whatever university I liked. I was always rich enough to attend whatever concert or event I wanted.

It buys you socialization.I was always rich enough to hang out with my friends whenever I wanted, doing whatever we wanted. I was always rich enough to attend whatever birthday party I was invited to and bring a present. I was always rich enough to have a birthday party myself without having to worry about money.

It buys you healthcare.I was always rich enough to go to the doctor whenever I was feeling sick. I was always rich enough to buy whatever medicine the doctor recommended for me to get well. I was always rich enough to choose a healthy meal over some cheap fastfood. I was always rich enough to play sports. I was always rich enough to worry about my health before money.

It buys you entertainment.I was always rich enough to go to the movies with my family or my friends whenever I wanted. I was always rich enough to go on holiday every year with my family. I was always rich enough to go on whatever vacation my friends invited me to. I was always rich enough to pay for music, movies, Netflix, books.

It buys you self confidence.I was always rich enough to buy new clothes when the old ones didn’t fit me anymore or I didn’t like them anymore. I was always rich enough to go to the hairdresser whenever I needed it. I was always rich enough to buy skin products, beauty products and makeup. I was always rich enough to buy clothes for parties or for formal occasions.

And isn’t all that kinda what life is about?

I’m not saying money buys you happiness. All I’m saying is that it buys you things we take for granted when we talk about happiness.

“Money doesn’t buy you happiness”

I asked my mom once, why my Christian School’s Principal and his Wife left me alone with the only senior boy in my class during our Senior Trip(cruise) multiple times. They left our group early or we’d arrive earlier than them and they’d never accuse us of doing ‘things’ like they did with every other girl in my class the moment they even looked at a boy. None of them were allowed to roam the ship at night without an adult.

We all knew Sam had a crush on me so I found it weird how we’d be alone for up to an hour, playing chess, before chaperones would appear and we wouldn’t be questioned over anything!

Mom gave me this pitying look. “Helen, your puppy crush was obvious to everyone, but you give off a perpetual air of disinterest in everything. Your face makes you look tired and somewhat out of it all the time. You’re blank. And he was too chicken shit to try anything without my permission. So they knew it was safe.”

And I was like, oh so it isn’t just cuz I’m so ugly they’d never believe someone would want to canoodle with me?

And then she adds, “Also they might have been trying to push you together as a potential couple for marriage upon graduation since they let him escort you to that Valentine’s Day Banquet. They might even have tried setting you up like they did your friend Abby’s brother so you’d get guilt-tripped into marrying Sam for having sex out of wedlock like Abby’s brother did.”

And the thing is… it’s not an exaggeration! These people are fucking crazy and love guilt-tripping youths into things they aren’t ready for! I was their church pianist and a Sunday School Teacher trusted to handle a class of 60 preteens at age 15! They play you like a fiddle if you let them. So like, did they trust my maturity or try to get me to ‘fornicate’ out of wedlock to trap me there?

Neil Gaiman: ok so Aziraphale and Crowley are canonically agender and they can possibly seen as ace/aro-

Y'all: yeah but they aren’t Cisgender Homosexual Men so uh, cancelled and also Gaiman is a transphobic homophobic piece of scum because he didn’t make my ship canon and also gave the chance to lgbt+ identities that I, personally, dislike, to be seen, respected and represented so :////

Preach!  

The misinformation circulating is incredible.  It’s almost like they’re talking in code.Let’s see if I can translate the code.  

“Neil is anti-semitic” = “I didn’t know he was Jewish.  No one told me there were Jews with British accents!  I’m so confused!”

“Morpheus is problematic.”  = “…What’s a redemption story?”

“Stop listing off all his gay characters!   All his gay character die, cheat on each other, or are a joke.” = “I need to continue to justify my hate.  Please tell me there’s a gay joke in American Gods somewhere…. Please… I need to justify my hate.”

“Neil is Homophobic.” = “No one told me he won a GLAAD award.  GLAAD isn’t a REAL LGBT+ organization, right?!   I mean, it only acknowledges two of the letters!”  or “No one told me his wife is bisexual.” or “I keep forgetting he’s the one who put those innuendos in Good Omens.”

“Neil doesn’t deserve the ‘Gai’ in his name!” = “I can’t fight my real oppressors so I’m going to pretend Neil Gaiman is the problem and use him as an unhealthy outlet for my rage.”

“Wanda is Transmysoginistic.” = “I’m a terf and I see her as a man in a dress because she didn’t medically transition and she’s really tall and doesn’t have delicate features so that’s sexist somehow!  Also she died and that’s a ‘Burry your gays” trope even though her death was literally to show that her soul was a woman!  And how dare he acknowledge transphobia is a thing and show transphobic characters!  Why can’t his world be perfect and gumdrops?”

“I heard he has graphic Trans rape and murder porn!” =  “I didn’t actually read Sandman but I heard through the grapevine some out of context information about The Serial Killer convention storyline and I leapt to conclusions while assuming the worst.”

“Neil didn’t speak up for the LGBT+ community during the AIDS crisis! And I have a convoluted theory about his dislike of a certain banana drink to prove he doesn’t really care about the LGBT community!” = “No one told me he wrote a detailed pamphlet-comic on how to get help if you think you might have HIV or AIDS, debunking myths about AIDS, and teaching how to properly apply a condom.”

“He’s anti-gay for saying these two characters aren’t gay but in the queer spectrum!  Non-binaries can still be gay!”  = “I’m ignoring that Neil Gaiman specifically was talking about creatures that lack organs of sex unless they will them to be there and don’t actually identify as male, just present as male.”

Am I missing any?

hot take: ‘chivalry’ is fine as long as it’s adapted to 21st century values. if you are a male, you SHOULD be aware that your female friends face certain issues that you as a male dont. acting on that awareness in a way that keeps your female friends safe, isn’t a bad thing.

like… opening doors isn’t rly chivalrous when it’s just a thing you ought to do for everyone. but real 21st century chivalry might be, like, standing between your female friend and the guy that’s trying to get her drunk, or offering to walk her home when it’s late.

if the ‘chivalry’ inconveniences everyone involved and you’re just doing it for your over-inflated male ego — ie, “no you’re the girl here, you HAVE to let me hold this door for you and do all these things for you even when you can do it yourself and im just slowing you down” — then it’s just outdated misogyny.

Chivalry was literally designed to make nobles aware of their power and influence so they don’t unintentionally harm people when trying to do their job of leading and protecting people. Modern chivalry should carry on that sentiment of men and white people becoming aware of their own power of privilege and influence to help and protect the lives of their peers.

*Not to inflate their egos, but because it’s the good thing to do and makes the world a better place to be.

Chivalry, at its core, involves being helpful to people who don’t have your advantages. 

It involved generosity and protecting those weaker than oneself: including opening doors when doors were made of badly fit heavy wood and often got stuck,and women, especially undernourished exhausted-from-childcare women, had a harder time opening them. It involved not lying, and following through on your promises. (A guy who is consistently late with the accounting reports, which delays the whole team, is not dedicated to chivalry, no matter how polite he is on a date.) 

Chivalry is a code of ethics that involves dedicating one’s strength and skills in service to others; it’s not based on gender roles.

Saw a post claiming half the ID checks that happen are just people too lazy to do their job and want to get out of it.

I immediately disagreed, but then seconds later I was like, eh more like 20/80 with 20% being lazy. In my experience at least.

I’ve gotten carded at Walmart for buying disposable red cups. You know the type. They were all I needed too and I was sent in to be my mom’s legs. The cups weren’t sold to me because my ‘photo ID looks fake’ despite me having it and the temporary on me but no other forms of identification. It had been a slow day and the place was a ghost town. The cashier had a nasty attitude that made me want to punch her in the face. Had to go further than necessary and waste more gas, to get the same cups at the Dollar General where I wasn’t carded.

I get carded for wanting virgin drinks in restaurants. Every time. Get told my ID doesn’t look legit or that I ‘have a young face’ when I don’t and my voice is deeper than what is expected of women. I get argued with over my supposed youth over wanting a non-alcoholic beverage!

I was in GameStop once and this dude came in. As any woman, the moment I see a guy my size or bigger than me, I keep him in my line of sight. He wanted some game that was 18+ and got carded. The lady told him his driver’s license looked fake so she wasn’t ringing him up without proof that he wasn’t 17 or under. 

Now the dude was jacked, covered in tattoos, and had a thick, well-managed beard. His voice was deep. He couldn’t pass for 17 or below if he tried. Dude stomps out and comes back from his car with Driver’s License, Photo ID from the Uni of Scranton, 2 different credit cards, his insurance card, and his own birth certificate, and slammed them down and asked if she still believed he was underage. She rolled her eyes and went about getting the game from the back(that’s how they do it in GameStop) and dragged her feet the whole time. You’d think if she really wanted it over and done with she’d move faster or something.

Anyway, he got his game and I left because her attitude annoyed me to hell and back and God forbid I get carded for a kid’s game or some shit.

So like, there are people who pull the carding thing to get out of doing extra work, but they’re more of the exception than the rule. And anyway, they get enough punishment because in trying to get out of doing some menial task, they waste more and more time in the long run so…
