“This time of my life belongs to me and my girl friends.”
Taylor Swift in Harper’s Bazzar (x)
“Where “Shake it Off” is generic, “Out of the Woods” is particular to Swift, the kind of song that only she would write. It’s reassuring, exciting stuff, whether or not this particular song is even to your liking. If you care about how all pop music sounds exactly the same because the same five people are churning out hits for everybody on the Billboard Top 100, then you should care about someone like Swift — a serious songwriter with a distinct voice — crafting her own songs. If she’s singing somebody’s else’s words, it means she isn’t gutting you with lines like “you call me up again just to break me like a promise / so casually cruel in the name of being honest,” or telling a whole life in four words with “careless man’s careful daughter.” I don’t want to turn on the radio and hear female artists belting out girl power jams written by a bunch of dudes. I want more Lorde, more Charli XCX, more Nicki Minaj, more Kacey Musgraves. I want Swift to keep sounding like Swift, coy references to unnamed celebrity exes and all.”

"I made the decision to spend time on my own and figure out who I am. When you’re in love you tend to prioritize that other person’s opinion and almost value it as much, if not more, than your own opinion. When you take the other person out of the scenario and you’re walking through life on your own, you end up figuring out what you actually like without anyone else’s input."
