A Doc for the Swifties

America, look what you made Taylor Swift do. After spending the last several years struggling to win back public favor amid waves of media criticism and online hate comments, Swift has finally found a way to tug at the public’s heartstrings once more. She achieves this not through her usual glossy pop anthems but through the more subtle art of film (and no, I don’t mean Cats.)

Review: Lover by Taylor Swift

Although Lover is not Taylor Swift’s first album, it is the first one that she owns completely. As a result of this total ownership, Lover is an album that knows her worth, skips down 16th avenue loving life and love itself, occasionally wondering how different things would be if she was a man, and no longer letting her fears define her.
