I just got the new Taylor Swift album for Jo, and while I think she’s a really talented singer/songwriter, there are just some things that I can’t really buy about her. Like, singing about trying to get some guy’s attention in songs like Enchanted and Teardrops on my Guitar. It’s touching and well-written, but I’m just not sure if I can believe her when she sings songs like that.
I mean, look at her.
Taylor Swift is blond, pretty, with a body that most girls would die(t) painfully for. Am I really supposed to believe that she’s going to be in the leftover crowd at parties? Granted, she’s not the hottest girl in the world or anything, but she’s still undoubtedly fine.
It’s not the first time I’ve felt this way about songs… It was like when Alicia Key sang How Come You Don’t Call Me. I mean, c’mon… it’s Alicia Keys. She’s hot in every sense of the word, even when she was wearing those silly Fran Drescher Nanny pants during Super Bowl XLII.
Maybe if she put on a crap load of weight and messed up her face with some prosthetics like Charlize Theron in Monster, then it’d be a more plausible scenario. You know, at least for the music video.
Now Kasey Chambers on the other hand, I can totally believe her when she sings “Am I not pretty enough?” Now don’t get me wrong… I’m not saying that Kasey Chambers isn’t attractive. She’s a pretty lass, but she’s just not ridiculously hot like Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys.
Or maybe it’s just a matter of geography. Maybe it’s cos not everyone lives in LA. Like, maybe it’s because incredibly hot women are just a dime a dozen in there. As they say in the movie Swingers:
“It’s like the hottest one percent from from all over the world come to our gene pool.”
“Darwinism at it’s best.”
