I feel like if Taylor Swift had no musical talent, she’d probably become a young adult novelist or write for a teen girl magazine.

I finally just listened to “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and it seriously reminded me of NY Mag’s current story on Jane Pratt, where Pratt hypothesizes that everyone has a “spiritual age” — the age you feel you’re meant to be forever — and hers is like 15 or 16. That’s gotta be TSwift’s deal, right? She’s an adult on the outside, but she’s dating an 18-year-old and writing songs that literally sound like the lyrics were pulled verbatim from a fifteen-year-old’s Tumblr. Like, she’s basically a Sweet Valley Twin at this point. Maybe that should be her next project: Sweet Valley High concept album. “Jess wears short skirts/I wear t-shirts/She’s cheer captain/And I’m on the school paper.” Twist: this song is dedicated to Bruce Patman.

(I hope there’s a song about that girl who tried cocaine once at a party and she didn’t know she had a heart condition and it killed her.)

For the past couple years I’ve been able to let it slide — with her second album, those were all written when she was legitimately a teenager, and then Speak Now was basically just a retread of the same topics. But, like, YOU’RE A REAL ADULT NOW. YOU DATED JOHN MAYER. YOU CAN’T GO BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL AFTER DATING JOHN MAYER.

If Carly Rae Jepsen isn’t her opening act on her next tour I will be floored.
