Reasons Why Taylor Swift Is Overrated

BlueDiamondFromNowhere
I don't really like Taylor Swift. Her music is fine, but I think she gets too much credit for what she really is and what she really does

The Top Ten

1 She always disses her exes and dissed once critics

She thinks earning a living from dissing her exes is cool and okay like hell no please get a life there are so many people in need of money nowadays and she can easily obtain it from writing absurd autotune songs. At least make some songs that has actual quality!

She sings songs about exes like it is cool. It's not. If you think about it every song is the same. Someone broke up with her and she wrote a song about so everyone can know the guy is a jerk. But she probably writes the songs because they mask the fact that she hasn't held many long relationships and that the guys break up with HER. Her voice is terrible because she has a very bad range and can't hit any high notes. Sorry Taylor, but I think you and I both know you use autotune.

I have said this many times. Not once has Taylor considered whether the guy was able to defend himself or if he even wanted everyone knowing his business. It really isn't hard to see why she can't have a relationship she socially is about the age of 11. All she does is whine.

Overrated. if u erase the pop bubble songs and the broken heart songs u have a fustrated single woman. who at least knows how to take money from that, dumb she isn't

2 She uses a lot of autotune

She can't sing. Plain and simple. I once heard her sing an entire song being completely flat live. Granted, it wasn't her own song, cause she simplifies the notes in her own song so she can sing them and then sings the lower harmony if there is anything too high for her. When she sang 'Bleeding Love' with Leona Lewis, it was almost too sad. Someone like Leona who is clearly more talented and also writes her own music is easily passed by for someone with no vocal talent like Taylor Swift.

She can't hold a note to save her life. Her voice is almost always shaky. I'm not gonna be one of those that say she isn't good for anything in this industry. I think that she would have been an okay lyricist. Not a singer. Definitely not a singer.

That's why her studio version and her live version aren't the same - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

She not use auto-tune because she refuse to using it. - BeaM456

3 Her songs are always the same

Yes, it always poor Taylor someone is being mean to me. Victims of the World unite. Once again Taylor has attacked many a guy who never told his side because he had too much integrity to do what Taylor does but yet everyone jumps on the band wagon that poor Taylor has been done wrong. I am so glad she is out of country music!

Exactly. She can't think to put anything worthwhile into her songs, it's always the same idea. Same goes with most mainstream pop artists. - PositronWildhawk

This really annoys me to be honest. She always sings about love and break ups. I mean, I get that she wants to express herself or whatever, but overdoing that can get quite annoying. Please sing about something else for once.

yup

4 She has an annoying fanbase

Not all of us are haters. I expect music artist to actually be able to sing and I mean sing exceptionally. To me her voice is mediocre and I just don't like her music. I'm being honest not hating. Her fans should not call everyone haters because some of us do not have hate just because we don't have a particular taste for her music. They brag far to much and she is no more exceptional than many other people. She is not perfect. No human being is, Sorry! That's what gets her fans into trouble anyway shoving her down people's throat. Not everyone has to like her music and people are not "awful people" if they don't care for her music. Her fans can be very rude to others and their music taste.

They all praise her everywhere they go and her songs too. They bashes other people that don't like her. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

I don't like or hate her music, I hardly listen to it unless it is being played in the store I am shopping in. But I am so SICK and TIRED of hearing people just dying to bring her up in conversation and then going on and on about how great of a human being she is and should be a role model to everyone.

It's really unfair how they swear at me and say I have no taste in music I'm 10 people I like people like Katy perry pink Avril lavinge and adele they are good singers/songwriters not taylor who can't think of anything to write about except boys

5 She isn't that great of a role model

I kind of feel sometimes like she's a fake. Sure, she donates but she can't take criticism. With that whole Katy Perry thing, which SHE clearly started Katy has been really calm, while Taylor is being over dramatic.

Honestly, I feel like a lot of what she does is for attention, even if she isn't like Miley Cyrus. She breaks up with a lot of people, and writes songs about it to make it seem like she's the victim.
So overall, even though it's a good thing she donates and doesn't do sex or drugs(that we know of) she is still no more of a role model.

Mean clearly states that people can't change. If your mean now, no matter why your going to be mean your entire life.

Blank Space is about how all guys are jerks and we should just stop hoping because we'll never find the right guy.

I Knew You Were Trouble is about how she knew there was going to be problems but she went for it.

See? Do you still think she's a role model? - AnnaOfArendelle332

I totally agree with this. I mean, she always disses her exes in her songs (which is quite pathetic, since she's like, 26 now? ) and makes girls have unrealistic expectations in relationships making them think that they are "prince charmings" out there, when in reality, they do not exist. It's very annoying. The same thing goes to her too. Wake up Taylor; they are no perfect guys out there. So quit thinking that there is.

She always act like she is the victim

6 She is full of herself

When she donates she makes sure to make it a whole publicity stunt so that people know she did it and how great she is. Plus she's been rolling in cash since before she was born, so throwing money at things doesn't dent her bank account. And all stars are expected to have some sort of philanthropic aspect to them, again it's just good PR is all. Don't be delusional.

Such a great role model. Donate just so you can get the self-promotion and everybody will like you and your terrible highly auto-tuned songs. Taylor, if you are going to donate, do it for a good reason. But you probably are too busy recording terrible songs and spending your millions of dollars than to bother being nice for once. I'm sure your fans are dwindling but you produce one terrible song after another.

I love the bit where the person wrote that Taylor donates to people in need. Taylor does this only when it serves her purpose. It's self promotion no a true intention of helping!

She is greedy and self centred.

7 She isn't the most beautiful female singer

I can't belive she's number 1 at the list of "most beautiful female singers". I mean, there is a lot of singers that are far more atractive than her - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

If we're going to insult her, we should be able to do it sufficiently without bringing up her looks. That's low.

She is not even that pretty, though she looks okay. Leona Lewis is much prettier.

She is the most beautiful...

8 She can't hit high notes

She needs to yell to reach them and she isn't belting notes at all - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Thank God she doesn't try it's bad enough listening to her regular voice.

Ariana Grande needs to yell to reach high notes as well and she depends on belting notes! But yeah, let's be grateful that she doesn't try hitting high notes.

9 Too many boyfriends

She had too many boyfriends but lets be honest at least half of them were just pr stunts. She makes money from writing songs about them so that is why she had som many "boyfriends" She needs someone new for every new album and she knows people are more interested in songs about someone they know that is why every boyfriend she ever had was famous guy. She needs to be in the news with her new famous boyfriend so there are paparazzi with them almost everywhere taking pictures of them holding hands and etc. I don't know who wants to be followed by them when they want to spend free time with their partner. Obviously Taylor because it is not her free time but her job. I don't understand who is still buying it.

She changes boyfriends more than her earrings

I wear same earring all the time

SO WHAT SHE IS STILL A PERSON. THERE IS ALSO A LOT OF GIRLS WHO HAVE DATED A LOT OF GUYS TOO.NOT JUST HER.AND WHY YOU EVEN INCLUDE THIS ON YOUR LIFE IT IS TOO PERSONAL

10 She's called one of the greatest singers ever when Chad Kroger from Nickelback can singer higher notes than she can

This is true by the way - christangrant

The Newcomers

? She is always calculating

Ok, I'm a big fan of old taylor, the sweet, teenage/early twenties country taylor, who actually seemed to care about people. Remember when she did that 13 hour fan thing in 2011! But now? She is always CALCULATING. Taylor's mind:
"Oh, if I tell the media about how amazing my boyfriend is, everyone will say how sweet that is."
"If I change genres from country to pop, I can make even more millions."
"I should date the hottest guy on earth so the media can take more pictures and say how lucky I am. Hey, why don't we just kiss on a beach for heaps of people to see!? "

And for those of you who say her country is about too many guys; every teenager is like that. It's a phase they go through. It's normal.

The Contenders

11 She wins awards that she shouldn't

Society is unfair. Why did Taylor Swift win so many awards, especially at Grammy?! What! Are you kidding me? She hasn't enough talent to win for these awards. Listen her voice carefully. Her screaming parts sound like a crash. She sings only easy songs and anyone can beat and sing her songs. She is a fake snake!

She wins too many undeserved awards for her terrible music.

Kanye West was rude, but completely right. And how she won over Kendrick Lamar, who has music that actually means something and isn't the same every time, baffles me.

Understatement of the last 20 years.

12 She can't act

I saw her on a episode of CSI. She sucked. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

She was awful! Not natural at all!

She makes Kristen Stewart look like a genius!

Her acting is nearly as horrible as the acting as her best friend Ariana Grande! THANKS FOR MAKING SUCH EXCUSES, NICKELODEON! YOU DESTROYED A LOT OF CHILDREN, BUT YOU HAVE SINGLE-HANDEDLY KILLED OFF ARIANA GRANDE!

13 She's a coward

Every time she's criticized for something, whether deserved or not, she immediately plays the victim, screams something about how she's just being slut-shamed or feminist girl power (which she's NOT a feminist,) and shuts down the conversation. She can't handle any real criticism and hides from it.

14 Her style is boring

Country/pop style bore me to dead. I am more into the rock or urban style - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

I would no longer put Taylor in the country style any longer and believe me Nashville is glad. At last years awards a comment was made that was a goodbye to Taylor Swift from Nashville.

I understand that country pop is not for everyone. And I also know people are going to say "oh she's an obsessed fan" but she has these awards and this money for a reason. Maybe not for you, but for other girls, her music helps you cope, or maybe, it's just their opinion and they like it so they are SICK OF PEOPLE CRITICISING HER!

I hate her bruh

15 Her vocals in live performances are awful

Really... It is expected from a singer using autotune every time

When she sings her voice shakes and most of the time you hear just autotune. Sound of her voice is also not interesting sometimes its even annoying.

16 She always plays the victim

Her exes are the ones we should feel sorry for.

17 Everyone praises her like a queen.

Kids and teenagers are CRAZY about her, she can't even sing.

I agree Taylor makes songs with horrible meanings and gets praised for making up a story for why she is a victim. Adele, Little Mix, and Demi Lovato are people who can sing high notes and make good music but are underrated. It sucks knowing an artist with a voice that always stays at one note can be a popstar.

There are many talented artist out there who can actually hit high notes and sing powerfully, yet they get overrunned by constant irrelivant articles and posts about Taylor. I get it, she IS talented, but people praise her WAY too much.

Being a singer is NOT about ALWAYS HITTING HIGH NOTES.MUSIC IS THERE TO EXPRESS EMOTION AND TO INSPIRE

18 Her songs are nothing to write home about

I have been a professional in the music industry for a very long time; from teaching music instruction to producing commercial songs for record labels. And believe me, Taylor is nothing to write home about, as well as many many other artists out on the market these days. But I still have hope that one day, an artist in our industry will reach far above and beyond the Mediocrity and become a music legend as we have had in the past.

19 She is a feminist

When Nicki Minaj pointed out that white singers get more credit than other races, Taylor took it personal when it wasn't even about her specifically in the first place.

Actually she is not a feminist, she is a femi-Nazi.

20 She's a fake

Absolutely! I'm not sure if Taylor knows what being sincere is any longer!
