Taylor Swift’s life was just turned upside down after her latest anti-Trump attack backfired

111

Taylor Swift is hoping to leverage her position as the top music star in the world to help Democrats.

She recently came out announcing she will become more active politically.

But her life was just turned upside down after her latest anti-Trump attack backfired.

Taylor Swift made history at Sunday’s American Music Awards (AMA).

She brought in more awards than any artist in history, edging out the late Michael Jackson.

But she wasn’t the only one to make history, as this AMA awards turned out to be the least watched in the history of the show.

Breitbart News reports:

The American Music Awards (AMAs) hit an all-time low in the all-important 18-49 age demo Sunday, and pretty much tied its record-low total viewership.

It was just last year when the American Music Awards hit its previous record low, with a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 advertiser-coveted age demo. This year that number dropped to 1.7.

Good heavens, the AMAs can’t even attract young people. And this year’s performances saw one woke showcase after another.

Last year, 6.585 million total viewers tuned, in. This year 6.733 million did the same …  an increase of just two percent.

Now I’m going to offer a little context that will allow you see just what a catastrophe this is…

In 1991, you know, when music was still sexy and fun, the AMAs drew … 34.4 million viewers.

Can you believe that, 34.4 million viewers compared to just 6.7 million?

Swift could likely be responsible for the fall in ratings.

She was the main event at the awards show, where she won the Artist of the Year and Artist of the Decade Award, along with performing during the show.

But this isn’t the same Swift who has been around for many years.

She is now politically vocal, with her getting involved in the 2018 midterm elections to support Democrat candidates.

It seems that getting political may not be the best decision when it comes to ratings.

Do you think music stars should stay out of politics?

  1. It wouldn’t be bad to hear what they have to say if it was halfway intelligent, but never works out that way! It’s their way or the highway!!

    • Pluckhead can’t pluck her way out of this one – strange how people who go to Hollywood start thinking they are important and smart when the opposite is their norm. In my book she is just another uneducated deadhead mouthing off about things she doesn’t understand (and never will at her stymied maturity).

    • Unfortunately, the entertainers, singers, actors, late night TV hosts, all think we want to hear their rants on pollitics. It’s not bad enough we have to listen to the politicians themselves but now the so called “entertainers” want to get into the act. Don’t get mr wrong, I’m glad they have an opinion, but people in general donn’t want to hear it. If they win an award, we don’t want to hear their political view on anything, this is NOT the platform for this. You know what they say about opinions? They are like a$$h holes, eerybody has one and most of them stink! If the entertainer wishes to get into politics, then get out of the entertainment bbusiness. Do one or the other, not both.

    • Unfortunately for phukHead, she is wrong on every issue while she is trying to be Hollywood cool. Her cool aid must be spiked ignoramuis-amongus. Cheers. Have a nice day.

  2. Taylor Swift and Stella McCartney Launch Sustainable Fashion Line

    Fashion designer Stella McCartney is passionate about spreading the message that no animals have to be harmed to make beautiful clothing or accessories. She’s spoken out against fur, leather, and has stated her desire to work with more designers on sustainability efforts. McCartney is one of the biggest advocates for animals in the fashion world, and now she’s teaming up with a force in the music industry for a sustainable collection!

    Stella McCartney and singer Taylor Swift recently announced their collaboration for a fashion line inspired by Taylor Swift’s new album, Lover.

    In one of her Instagram announcements, McCartney described it as “sustainable.” The collection will be available for a limited time and will incorporate the colors, tones, and even lyrics from Swift’s latest album, which was released on August 23rd.

    The collection will also draw inspiration from “vintage graffiti, band T-shirts, and nostalgic memorabilia.” It will include tie-dyed tees, sweatshirts, airbrushed jackets, totes, and a reusable water bottle. Jerseys in the collection are made from sustainable organic cotton. A handbag in the line is made with Eco Alter-Nappa leather and a bomber jacket is made from sustainable viscose.

    If you’re a Swiftie or are just excited about some sustainable fashion, you can order items from the collection on McCartney’s website or shop at her standalone stores in New York and London. Swift also hosted a pop-up shop in New York City called “The Lover Experience” from August 23rd to the 25th.

    This collaboration gives us hope that other artists may be inspired to work with eco-conscious designers like Stella McCartney, or even better that other designers will begin to adapt environmentally friendly ways of designing and producing merchandise.

    Taylor Swift has successfully transitioned from country to pop. There are valid reasons for liberals, like conservatives, to be concerned about whether pop stars are good role models for young people: the sexualization of children at an early age, etc. Even firms promoting socially responsible investing will not support the alcohol, tobacco, and firearms industries, in addition to opposing the military-industrial complex. And even some liberal parents don’t want their kids playing with toy guns, war toys, etc.

    But fears of Taylor Swift’s political leanings are not valid reasons!

    Labeling Taylor Swift a sex kitten says more about sexism in the music industry and American pop culture in general than it does about Taylor Swift and her political views.

    Taylor Swift was listed among the top twenty charitable celebrities of 2013, and I would like to see Taylor Swift become a positive role model for girls and young women in this regard by joining the many celebrities who have transitioned to a vegetarian or vegan diet:

    Vegetarian and vegan celebrties in 2019 include: Ariana Grande, Russell Brand, Kristen Wiig, Natalie Portman, Pamela Anderson, Mýa, Toby MacGuire, Kristen Bell, Russell Simmons, Ellen DeGeneres, Olivia Wilde, Stevie Wonder, Kellie Pickler, Alec Baldwin, Anthony Kiedis, Leona Lewis, Paul McCartney, Carrie Underwood, Venus Williams, Alicia Silverstone, Shania Twain, Alyssa Milano, Brad Pitt, Christina Applegate, Lea Michele, Steve-O, Erykah Badu, Jared Leto, Portia DeRossi, Daryl Hannah, Sandra Oh, Petra Nemcova, David Carter, Miley Cyrus, Moby, Tony Kanal, Alicia Silverstone, Emily Deschanel, Joaquin Phoenix, Kat Von D, Daisy Fuentes, Jessica Chastain, etc.

    In 2004, on the Democrats For Life email list, Maria Krasinski mentioned a poll which found animal activists evenly divided on abortion. This either indicates animal rights really are a bipartisan cause which conservatives can support alongside liberals, or it indicates many liberals are uncomfortable with abortion!

    In 2014, Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said: “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

      • Do not reply to vas Trolls get paid by the click.
        Do you think the democrats will get better or worse at cheating in 2020? We had better vote to counteract the multiple votes and dead people voting. Is there any moron on earth who thinks we would be better off if Hillary had won??

      • I agree with you. He runs his mouth too much and does not make any sense.
        One thing I forgot to mention with motor mouths editorial is he said that animals were not made for eating or wearing. Not true. God created them for us to eat. My husband is a hunter and the deer he shot and processed fed about 60 people so far. That’s just one of many stories.

        • Casual needs to cut and paste something about how people survived before four stores were ever thought about. His kind think Walmart’s and grocery stores always existed.

      • VASU IS ALWAYS REVVING UP HIS MOUTH BEFORE HE THINKS ABOUT THE ISSUES AND SO HE COMES ACROSS AGAIN AS AN OAF WHO TRIES TO PREACH TO THE CROWD THAT THINKS HE IS A DUNCE.

    • Funny…I read the first line of your drivel, Vasu, and knew it was you. It’s too bad there isn’t a ‘block’ button so I wouldn’t have to scroll past the four pages of bs you post on every article on this site.

    • Vasu, I’ve been watching you for days and even weeks now. Why don’t you just shut up instead of flooding this comment section with your pro-liberal rant. Get lost, go give Obama and Trudeau a hug. btw, I’m from Canada and I support Trump.

    • Hey everyone, a phone number to a crappy line. You liberals make me sick. And Taylor Swiffer use to be one a of my favorite singers. However, since she opened her mouth like she did. She can kiss my a## from now on. I will never buy any albums of hers or any others like her.

    • Vasu,

      That’s all great – but irrelative. She found a market of a zillion tweenies who want to give her their daddy’s money for songs – awesome for her. Boys buy her songs purely for her sexual looks – and everyone knows it because it’s the marketing technique that works. But, that does not make her a political philosopher, someone who represents my values, a all knowing God, or “right”. It only makes her someone who has made a lot of money off of cute songs. Because she has decided making cute jingles and being morally superior are one in the same, she is taking herself way too seriously and, thus, is what most classical writers would regard as a fool.

    • You forgot to add how many times Taylor spread her legs to get to the musical Olympus and forgot to add what shoes and those fur coats that she constantly wears are made of!

  3. While we adults choose who our political candidates are, the delusional celebs should continue to sing, dance, and pretend to be someone else – it’s all they’re good at – and some aren’t even good at that!

    • Shame on you, belittling a woman, only good for when you want them. You’re just a man, nothing special after that remark. Movie stars have a right to their beliefs, as you do, but watch your tongue, bud. Are you blond? Feeling ditzy?

      • Entertainers have a right to their own beliefs, of course, the problem is they use their fame as an entertainer as a supposed authority on things they know little about. Or they think their opinions on everything merit our following them off the cliff. I watch no awards programs anymore, and few major network programs where they think it is their right to disrespect our President and all who support him.

    • True.
      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the girl cant sing !!!
      very over rated and if you look closer not as pretty as she thinks she is.
      She started out at about age 16, helped and looked after by the country music fine folks who took up for her after she was trashed while accepting an award a few years ago just to be written off by the ungrateful climber.
      Apparently she like others are jumping on the anti Trump train to go farther.

  4. Vasu Murti-My God, you are still writing books. You better get them copyrighted or you could end up in trouble. No one is reading them anymore, who has time? Why do you feel you have the right to out think, out write and out do everyone else? You are beginning to really stink. Go away and leave us alone and stop trying to change our minds. In fact, go back to your own country and don’t come back here. WE DO NOT WANT YOU or we may just feed you to the Democrats for their cult dinner.

    • Can you imagine being so arrogant?? I learned how to play a guitar and watch CNN. Listen to me peons!! lol
      Never worked a job but thinks she knows whats best. ROFLOL Grandpa always said “stupid people have no idea they are”

    • She’s a traitor to country music and she’s a traitor to the South. She said thank her lucky stars she’s where she is because in my opinion she sucks

  5. I don’t watch award shows where millionaires pat themselves on back for doing a good job as it is so self serving especially when I have to listen to their political views.

    I have nothing in common with those people as they they forgot what it is like to work and live in the real world.

  6. I fondly remember when entertainers were busy entertaining. Now they’re busy politicking. I wish they’d just shut up and entertain. Maybe I’d go see a movie again or look into some new albums.

    As it is now ….. just who the hejj is Taylor Swift anyway? And why should I care?

  7. She is an entertainer. She needs to remember that. All her types do when promoting their political views is piss off a lot of their fan base. That is not very smart on her part. The media builds these kind of people up. Most people pay no attention to them.

  8. This blonde does not watch ANY AWARDS . Since the Dixie Chicks I gave it up . I turn my radio on to Classic Country only . None of the older country singers were politically motivated and if they were it was Republican.

  9. I’ve listened to Taylor Swift for a long time and yes her music was very good. She has since let her own fame goto her head. Her newer music is not as good and she needs to remember she is a singer. Dont be like most of Hollywood and think we give a rat’s ass about your views. Your an entertainer do that job. I can think for myself and I know the Constitution. So please all of you rich pricks STFU. Trump is doing great, conservative government is what we need!! America first and always if you don’t agree Leave.

  10. I don’t understand these celebrities they must feel guilty about all the money they make for the work they do but this is the first time in along time that I have had a little bit of extra money to do something nice like taking my wife out to dinner or get her some new clothes I appreciate what little extra money we have lately and it’s because of President Trump’s hard work and dedication to the people of this country I think folks should be more appreciative of the work that he has done if the fake news and Democrats would help out just alittle bit maybe I could afford to take my wife on a vacation I for one am tired of the Democrats trying to tear down this country and my President

  11. Why do these a stupid Biotchs or so call celebrity’s instantly throw away. 50% of their fan base by giving their political views which nobody gives a hoot in. They all get their start on the casting couch, not by talent. Jim Carry for. Instance . I use to really like. Him , but with his bashing Trump , I wouldn’t piss on that creep if if he was on fire. Celebrities are idiots.

  12. seems to me some entertainers believe all of us should agree with their ways of thinking & acting & supporting their causes! they have the right to express their opinions just same as we all do but they have no right to tell us how to act & how to think! I stopped watching award shows long time ago when they stopped being entertaining & just plain stupid!

  13. Do not watch those shows. It just gives them a chance to spew their negative non intelligence. She should stick to what she knows how to do because if she supports ANY Democrat she is Un American and a traitor to this country. Getting really discusted with these silver spoon morons running their mouths at events like award shows….

  14. Hell NO entertainers should entertain and say nothing about political crap to themselves they have no idea what their talking about anyway

  15. Piss on that stupid Bi-Otch , Airhead , who gives a Damn on her political views , typical blond with nothing between her ears.

  16. It’s not surprising that viewership has dropped so precipitously. In 1991, Music was still music; not the garbage we have today with Hip-hop, pseudo-country, and nothing close to the quality of Pop and Rock there was back then. These so-called “musicians” couldn’t carry their predecessor’s musical jockstraps. These no-talent bums can’t sing, can’t play, and are a bunch of over-rated phonies. Then, they think people really care about their political views? They are not only talentless, but clueless as well.

  17. A lot of celebrities have opinions about politics and they’re welcome to them. The intelligent ones keep their thoughts to themselves because they know they’ll hurt their brand image with 50% of the country no matter which political side they fall on.

  18. Millions of hard working American citizens have to little time to spent on other’s ego’s, and their self promoting misadventures. Frankly we don’t care what Hollywood folk say and do,nor do we care about those who earn their living singing tunes? We all work hard and when we seek relief from our tasks we want to be entertained/
    Self promoting fools who think because they have above average earnings they have somehow also have more sense,rarely is that the case! And we the people are sick & tired of self aggrandizement,stupidity,& arrogance!

  19. Entertainers are just that, entertainers… They do not have a higher cerebral function, they have a better voice than most of us or maybe it’s just better than mine! lol If these “entertainers think they will have some sort of a “cult-like following”, I would highly doubt it. I really do not want to hear any of the entertainers opinions or political views. They are not any different from me and we all put our pants on the same way, so zip it lady, I really don’t care what you have to say about your political views.

  20. Just because some of these people have a gift of music ot acting doesn’t mean they know what real life about. They should be greatfull for the money they earn the place that they can afford to live in. Now that their needs have been met now they should try to help the less privileged. Their opinions should be kept to themselves. A Lot of these people are perverted and live terrible lives, man with man or women with women. They are trying to tell us how to live a moral life, raise good children. If they did a fraction of what President Trump has done in these three years while being attacked In every direction by the liberal Left then they could say something. Shut up.

  21. I think the music people and the movie people should do their talent and keep out of politics and their mouths shut about politics. Just bring your talent. Isn’t that your profession? Isn’t that why your paid enormous amounts of money? Stick to your damn “day job”

  22. I think the music people and the movie people should do their talent and keep out of politics and their mouths shut about politics. Just bring your talent. Isn’t that your profession? Isn’t that why your paid enormous amounts of money? Stick to your damn “day job”

  23. I used to like her but since she opened her mouth she proved she is very ignorant to ways of the dem terrorists and how they are trying to destroy this country. She doesnt realize that they want control over everything and i mean everything. I thought she was a good roll model for young girls. Now i wont let my my kids watch or listen to her. She’s just too brainwashed and stupid. Not someone my kids will watch.

  24. Taylor Swift, like so many before her, and there will be many after her, has sold her soul for a bowl of porridge. You cannot get all those rewards year-after-year with out them literally owning you. Taylor used to be half-way decent. That lasted about two-years and she has went down hill ever since. The MSM and the music industry and the entertainment industry has made her and they can also destroy her. This destruction may happen a whole sooner than she thinks. By the Taylor, no one cares what your political leanings are. In fact if support any one candidate, I will be sure not to vote for them. Sometimes you are better known by the enemies you make, than the friends you keep.

  25. The left seem to think that actually intelligent people listen to their ‘influencers’. They also think that the people who do listen to them actually vote. We’ll just allow to keep on believing these things, it only helps our side.

  26. The PROBLEM with the Awards is Only the “woke” (actually, do they mean “JOKE”?!?) crowd (?!?) are watching this HORRID example of entertainment and no one is watching. And, Taylor Swift’s future is going DOWN with it. I have NEVER listened to her music and I’m not STUPID enough to start listening to anyone who caters to REPROBATES, especially the “woke” crowd. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  27. Somehow, someone excised her wisdom in keeping herself separate from politics. Losing fans is big business in H-wood now and she’s finally caved and joined in. Really pathetic.

  28. Entertainers are paid to entertain, not to pontificate about their political views. Musicians and Singers should play their music and sing. As far as politics go, they’re not experts; they’re not anyone entitled to state their views, their support for someone, their hatred for someone, or to promote an agenda more than anyone else. They should do what they’re paid to do, and entertain… as far as politics go, they should STFU… no one want to hear anything about that from them… (except the warped Leftists of course, who will take support from anywhere they can get it)… but entertainers should entertain, and otherwise, keep their political views out of their discourse… period.

  29. Hollywood and music makers really should support any current President or keep their mouth shut on the subject, showing their love for our Country goes a long way to be respected and gain more fans, which more fans equal more money in their bank account.

    Learn for the past, like the football player that kneeled when the national anthem played can’t find a job in football now, it even slowed sales of Nike products.

    Really it hurts when people get fed up with the bashing of America from Americans.

    I always thought of Taylor Swift as a nice girl, but she is showing her bad side, and as people know someone can do a thousand things good, but just one bad thing, the bad thing always will be remembered, and this is how Miss Swift will be remembered and unsupported by me,until she makes amends .

    God Bless America.

  30. Most young people in this country don’t know what good talent is, the more they sing( scream) the more they like them, they all sound the same to me & they get paid too much, they don’t have enough sense to know what a great President Trump is !!!!

    • Never liked her. I don’t appreciate celebrities trying to influence me on who to vote for. They do not have the wisdom to shape this country. Look at her life? How many men she went through in her young life? If she can’t pick and keep a good man for her, then she is in no position to tell people who should lead this great country.

  31. Unlike us average middle class income hard workers, they are always behind a camera and can get their stupid thoughts publicly heard unlike us. And all these young F***ed up libitards unfortunately worship the ground they walk on. These celebs make entirely more than they are worth. If it werent for powerlineman like me, there wouldnt be TVs radios and spotlights making them famous and they would be nobodies.Now we have stupid bloomberg in the running. TRUMP 2020

  32. ROFLMAO……..when I want advice from a child I’ll ask my great grandson who’s far more intelligent than any of the Music or Follywood freaks.

  33. I really do not understand the purpose of any of these award shows from the Oscars and Emmys and any and all of these music awards. What is the purpose of a we love ourselves show, by a bunch of idiotic people who are out of touch with real people and sit in their bubble telling each other how great they are. I personally have no idea who 99 per cent of them are and do not care to find out.I just can’t find any type of enjoyment in listening to a bunch of rich out of touch limousine liberals tell me how I should live my life. But I would like to ask one question I saw a beautiful 5.56mm Henry Lever action rifle should I get the 5.56 or go higher it was only about 700 dollars

  34. Standing in front of a Camera has made a lot of Hollywood stars dumb, and now it seem that standing
    in front of a microphone affects some singers and musical performers the same way!

    Just Wondering??????

  35. Performing and acting in the world of fantacy is where the hollywood elitists should stay. They have lost touch with reality. Absurb salaries, drugs, fanatcies is all they know. The best thing that Taylor Swift coud do forherself is to move to Memphis TN and get grounded. She has lost her roots like si many others.

  36. Like any American, celebrities have every right to free speech. The only way for them to realize that what they say means little is for the rest of us to ignore them.

  37. All I can say is any big name star that gets their self involved in politics will lose half their followers. But than shes not to bright to start with.
