I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a “Swiftie.” Taylor is one of my all time favorite artists out there, and while I think she’s smart and has a good heart, I also wish she’d stay apolitical.
But it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen – once she broke her silence last fall before the Tennessee election, the pop superstar has been very candid about her politics ever since.
In an interview with German outlet DPA, Swift says that music on her forthcoming seventh studio album will have a political message.
“I definitely think there are political undertones in the new music I made,” Swift said, “I’m not planning to stop encouraging young people to vote and to try to get them to talk about what’s going on in our country. I think that’s one of the most important things I could do.”
And according to People, when Swift was asked in the interview if she plans to become a mother one day, she said ““I really do not think men are asked that question when they turn 30,” she said. “So I’m not going to answer that now.”
Of course, sometimes politics and war lead to great songs even if you don’t agree with the message, so maybe a political Taylor Swift won’t be so bad after all.
