    Anyone else find this really creepy? A 54 year old man obsessing over Taylor Swift? Maybe I should send this to her security detail. :rollno:

    Taylor Swift: hottest cool chic ever ever ever

    Taylor Swift: hottest cool chic ever ever ever (Hagerstown) hide this posting

    Im54 yrs old. Crazy about Taylor Swift when she was discovered. I always said let's see where she is when she is 30. It only gets better with age. I admire her even more as a person than her stardom. I'll probably never even meet her in person. It's just an amazing ordeal or tale for me. Does everyone even know how wealthy this girl is and how she invests and manages her money. Her mom and dad work for her and are taken care of. She could have retired yrs ago and still has investment income. She makes Trump look dull, because she is still just young. Her character is nearly flawless without shame. Anyone who has picked on Her was a little out of line. Jealous drives some people to disrespect only themselves in the end. Bye, Taylor Swift amazed here.!!

    Very weird.

    Actually, her dad financed the beginning of her career. He owns Swift Transportation and was a millionaire long before she was.

    Rumor has it that she was able to get the attention of record companies by selling over 100,000 copies of her self-released debit album. Supposedly, her dad bought 100,000 copies.

    Another rumor around Nashville was that she didn't write all of her songs once she hit it big. She would have rooms of writers set up at the label's office and she would go from room to room and say "Change the bridge" or "make the lead vocal line lower here" while minions did most of the actual writing. Then again, Nashville is known for both true stories of musical shenanigans AND bold-faced lies.

    That being said, my hot redneck wife loves her. Every now and then she'll show me a video of "T Swifty" doing something very kind for a fan. She donates a gazillion dollars annually to all kinds of charities. And she seems like a nice person overall.

    She definitely has tapped into an audience of adoring fans. Is she an amazing singer? Nope. But neither was Rod Stewart or Joe Cocker. They all just have that "certain something" the masses can latch onto.

    I did a few of her "country" songs in a female-fronted band. They were good songs and fun to play. Singing backups over the female singer was a challenge all its own.

    But, yeah, just posting your feelings for her in a CL ad.... especially in your 50s..... is creepy and weird for sure.

    Sounds like maybe a developmentally disabled person maybe looking for a way to shout out to Taylor Swift and post against haters? That's the only way I can make it not creepy. And still it's kind of creeping.

    Many pop stars buy songs or hire ghost writers. It's typical to not have time to write good songs without help when you are touring and promoting constantly. Not a fan.

    Maybe the local law enforcement should check out that dude's basement and/or crawlspace.

    Funny...a few years ago, one of the country Sirius station was interviewing a songwriter (I have forgotten the name) and the interviewer asked him about Taylor Swift. The songwriter said that he was contacted by a producer to help fix some of the songs that a young singer was trying to use for a demo. The writer said, 'fine, when do we start?' The producer said they couldn't start immediately, the singer was only 17 and couldn't start, until after school. The writer said, 'no thanks, I don't have time to babysit someone's kid!'
    The songwriter found out later that the singer was Taylor Swift; the writer told the interviewer that he would have been set for life, had he taken the gig!

    I don't know about all that... I heard a recording of her talking about grabbing guys by their privates.


    OK. The Craigslist guy is on the money.

    If Taylor Swift ever reads this: I was joking.

    The ad doesn't mention if it's a woman or a man, but a 54 year old should know the difference between jealousy & envy.

    I was going to say the same thing about Arianna Grande. Warped minds think alike, I guess. ;)

    1. Yep, kinda weird.
    2. Don't much care one way or another. Taylor Swift has talent, but so do a lot of people. She was financed early on. Most aren't. I don't begrudge her success at all, but I certainly don't have any illusions that she made it on her own.

    Not sure if you are joking, but this isn't true. I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, but I have some familiarity with Swift Transportation.

    Kanye is like that 5 year old kid at the party who smashes the cake because it isn't his birthday.

    That's what separates a good songwriter /band from an entertainer /performer
