But keep in mind that "people throw rocks at things that shine."

When it comes to inspiring Taylor Swift's lyrics, Harry Styles has nothing on Adolf Hitler. Just kidding, Taylor Swift isn't a neo-Nazi, although funnily enough, Hitler was in a boy band called MEIN SYNC. The Pinterest board "Real Taylor Swift Quotes" is the work of Emily Pattinson, and it is a work of fiction. Taylor Swift never actually made any of these seemingly innocuous, yet contextually devastating statements. They were made by Hitler, Osama bin Laden, and other people who were once extremely popular, much like Taylor Swift is now. But just because Taylor Swift has made a sudden rise to power and desires to inculcate today's restless youth with certain messages via the propaganda format of song, doesn't mean there's anything to be afraid of. So put on your Swiftler Youth Badge and keep your head down.


Will you be her hero? She'll be your heroine.


And what she knows, folks, is country-pop crossover.


Do you hear that, Carrie Underwood?

And just for good measure, one quote from Osama bin Laden.

Girl's just happy to be single right now.
