Taylor Swift Tops Maxim's 2015 100 Hottest List

Written by

Look who it is, everyone. It's Taylor Swift once again on another magazine cover. The only reason any magazines are still operating these days is because Taylor Swift is around and to tell you the truth, she's not one to say no to appearing on your magazine if you have one. I'll bet if I contacted Taylor's people and asked them to send me a photo of her to put on the cover of a magazine I'm publishing, that photo of her would show up in my inbox faster than you could say "Meredith Grey." Maybe I should try that. Of course I'd need a magazine name. At this point I should just name it "Taylor Swift Weekly" because I'm just gonna put her on there every week anyway. I ain't stupid you know. Now give me money. I want to eat some Kraft dinner tonight.

Taylor is featured on the cover of Maxim's "Hottest 100 of 2015." Taylor comes in at #1. Maxim interviewed Taylor where she talks about her upcoming tour and she also says some "blah, blah" stuff 'bout dumb feminism. *Yawn.* Why don'cha shut yer yap, girlie and brim-me a beer. The big game's 'bout to start. And have my dinner ready on time and try not to burn it, sweetcheeks. *Burp* *scratches crotch* Ah, that's the spot.

From Maxim: "Honestly, I didn’t have an accurate definition of feminism when I was younger. I didn’t quite see all the ways that feminism is vital to growing up in the world we live in. I think that when I used to say, 'Oh, feminism’s not really on my radar,' it was because when I was just seen as a kid, I wasn’t as threatening. I didn’t see myself being held back until I was a woman. Or the double standards in headlines, the double standards in the way stories are told, the double standards in the way things are perceived," she reveals. "A man writing about his feelings from a vulnerable place is brave; a woman writing about her feelings from a vulnerable place is over-sharing or whining. Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born. So to me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace, because it’s just basically another word for equality," she adds

Taylor, I agree with about 98% of what you said and you raised some valid arguments which should absolutely be examined and you did so in a intelligent and thoughtful manner (unlike some women pop singers who haven't a friggin' clue)  - except for the men being called "brave" about writing from a vulnerable place within them statement. Bob Dylan has been writing songs about loss and heartbreak and relationships gone bad since before you were born. I don't remember anybody calling him "brave." Unable to understand a single damn word coming out of his mouth - yes - but not "brave." Just thought I'd clear that up. 'Later.
