If there's one thing you can say about Taylor Swift it's that she really loves her fans.
She also, however, appears to be a little naive when it comes to those same fans.
Backstage at Sunday night's CMA Awards, Taylor talked about how much she loves her fans.
"For me when I think about them, and I think about my fans as a group. I think about the little things. I think about the letters that I get from classrooms, and the YouTube videos of some little girl opening up her Christmas present and it's tickets to my show. And I think of young girls learning lessons on guitar," she shared. "Sometimes I'll sit in a position where I can watch people leave the shows and I'll look at the shirts that they made and the signs and some people will cover themselves in Christmas lights so I can see them from the stage. I know that's creepy but I just like to watch."
That's lovely. Like I said, Taylor lurvs her fans and it shows. Then, however, she got just a bit delusional. She went on to say:
"I just feel so proud that my fans are always nice to other fans," she added. "They don't say hateful things. They don't say they're going to set people on fire or anything. They're not sending death threats to other people."
Yeah, ok. Hey Taylor, come talk to me and I'll show you how nice your fans are when I say something that they perceive as mean. Or ask the t-shirt sellers out there who have attempted to sell a funny t-shirt that made a joke about your dating habits how nice your fans always are.
Trust me, as a blogger I've seen the dark side of fandom and it ain't pretty. In fact, I'm pretty sure that someday I will probably end up in therapy with PTFD … post-traumatic fan disorder.
