So when E! News used the headline, Taylor Swift's "Becoming More of a Product" as a Pop Music Singer, Says Brad Paisley, Brad wasn't too happy about it. In fact, he went to twitter to say, Bullsh*t headline E, nice interview. Go Taylor.
Wellll….I think half of Brad felt that way, I mean he DID say he thinks the cross over was admirable.
The article continued:
Taylor "has this vision for who she wants to be going forward," said the "River Bank" singer. He also praised his longtime pal for "say(ing) in a risky way, 'I am going to evolve beyond what you know me for already.'"
"People are going to have to get used to it cause its not the Taylor Swift obviously that you knew," he said. "Because this is somebody—like, she was talking about how she cut her hair, and she is spending time in different cities more and becoming more of a product—and she is a world famous superstar now. She is just not Nashville's, [and] we just have to kind of get used to that."
Well, as with most of us between the ages of 16 and 24…we change, so that was inevitable, right? So calling her a "product" would make virtually everyone a product. I know Brad was trying to say that she's basically acknowledged and accepted her pop persona, so we all should also.
He went on to say..
Brad, 41, isn't worried about Taylor, 24, and her future in pop music. "People are going to love it," he said, referring to her musical transition. "It's going to sell, and it already is [selling]. She has done a great job."
As far as Taylor calling out her haters (literally!) in her current single? "All of us have the urge to do that, and I respect her for doing that," said Brad. "I have that urge to do that as well, because it gets old just taking it when you're in the public eye."
"It gets old to sort of take it, and it's very noble to not say anything, but it's hard," he said. "It becomes a lot of fun to really steam now and again and challenge somebody who hates you. Because in the end, it's all very sort of unreal and not always accurate."
"You know the people who hate you," he added. "They don't really hate you with the same amount of fervor as the people who love you."
There's some things you could point out and classify as Brad showing a lil bit of shade at Tay Tay, but if the headline was taken out of context…then maybe some of the quotes were also?
