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.
