Stunning performance of IDSB. :-o Now it makes sense why she chose to perform the song; it was timed to follow her political “coming out”, especially when she’s the “Aryan goddess” neo-nazis and America’s republicans worship. To be such a powerful, wealthy and popular Caucasian American female figure and to openly voice out about LGBT and race... I’m still shook.

Since she did not choose that image actively but rather passively accepted that some Americans may see her as such, I wonder whether that is such a bad thing since she obviously has profitted a lot from that part of the market in the past, as in 'the hand that feeds you'. In the German-speaking countries, we have a similar case of a very successful female singer, with a similar musical background (going from traditional German music to a more pop sound) and conservative fanbase, that refuses to speak about politics because either way, it is destined to damage her reputation in some way. Thinking of the ESC, people have complained that politics and music started mixing in an 'ugly' way during the past few years of the show... Yet I can see why some people see rolemodel and important spokesperson in someone of Taylor Swift's status in the music business - it is so tricky.

Helene Fischer, I guess.

Taylor Swift — Official GRAMMYs Submissions

reputation - AOTY & Best Pop Vocal Album
Delicate - ROTY, SOTY, Best Pop Solo Performance & Best Music Video
End Game - Best Pop Duo/Group
Babe - ROTY, SOTY, Best Country Duo/Group, Best Country Song, Best Music Video
What do you think are her chances of getting nominated or winning? I think Reputation will get nominated for both AOTY and Pop Vocal Album, while Delicate might just get nominated for SOTY, Pop Solo Performance, and Best Music Video.

Her chance of winning any of them might be slim given this year's releases and her lack of a mega smash.

I'm not sure she'll get an AOTY nomination, but I think Pop for sure.

I'd be surprised if she wins any of those.

I feel like they will give Taylor an Ed Sheeran treatment and limit her wins and nominations to pop.

There are quite a few awesome individual songs on this but as an album I don't think it deserves any recognition. It didn't have anywhere near the shelf life that 1989 had.

How did you surmise that? The album and single are still in the Top 40 and it hasn’t even been a year.

I really really like this album. I think there’s very few dud songs on it. I’m probably the only person in the world who actually dislikes LWYMMD and I hate gorgeous so my expectations were in the toilet but I love the rest of the album and I think IDSB is amazing!!! I’m also in love with so it goes, dress, don’t blame me, call it what you want and dancing with our hands tied.
Most listened to albums at the moment:
Christina Aguilera - Liberation
Lily Allen - No Shame
Kali Uchis - Isolation

I should have stated for me, my fault. :lol: I haven't played this anywhere near 1989 but I may be in the minority with that. It has been a hugely successful era in terms of generating $, which is always the end goal I guess.

I have played this 3 or 4 times at most. She disappointed me with this after the incredible 1989. I don't think Reputation deserves AOTY nomination.

I feel like this album came one album too soon. She should've released another album in the vein of 1989, more pop, more getaway car than End Game. The transmission from pop/country on Red to Pop on 1989 to Urban/Pop was too harsh.

I didn't feel most of the album by the time it was released, although "Look What You Made Me Do" and "Gorgeous" were smash hits for me (and still are, probably in my Top 10 Taylor Swift songs)... but with time, I really fell in love with this album.

"This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" is my favorite non-single. That live performance of it mixed w/ WANEGBT at her recording breaking stadium tour is just too amazing!

thinking of her albums, I'd say...

This is very much of a pop album as 1989. It's just that the first two songs were darker sounding and it painted the mood of the album to be dark when the other songs are far from that.

One half of this album is actually amazing, but the other half is not strong at all, which is why i don't listen to this anymore. And if i listen to it, i only listen to half of it. This summer i decided to listen to her whole discography on a long flight and "Reputation" is definitely her first album which doesn't feel like a whole body of work to me, which is sad.

This is me nowadays, I only play selected tracks from the album (RFI, LWYMMD, Delicate, Getaway Car, Gorgeous, Call It What You Want). The rest might sound more appealing when nostalgia kicks in a couple of years down the line. I don't think this is AOTY material either, but its probably made for touring and it is definitely her version of sexy bad-girl pop. She brought eloquence and honesty to the genre and that makes Reputation stand out from the crowd.

She has won AOTY two times already, I doubt this is an album that gives her the title a third time as the first artist ever. She really needs a smash album and singles while still being cohesive.maybe she will get there again in a few years but at the moment and with reputation I cannot see it happening. I also think her recent behaviour might have upset quite a few people who voted for her in the past
