Taylor Swift Hates Your Indie Rock Band, Okay?

“That all came out of this one relationship I was in. This guy was just, so, so cool. It kind of gave me a bit of a complex for this album, because he was always going on and on about this new band that was so cool because they were so underground. I have so many indie bands on my iPod. What I don’t really understand is the attitude that if a band is unknown, they’re good, and if they get fans, then you move on to the next band.”

Taylor Swift feigns like she just doesn’t “get” indie rock, but like, not “getting” it is totally the super ironic hipster response, Tay-Tay. Swift was talking about indie bands after New York Times interviewer Susan Dominus noted that she calls out dudes listening to indie bands in her hit “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” It’s kind of a thing with her, we think, because she also claimed to listen to a lot of indie music but refused to call out any single band. Plus! New images taken from her newest video shoot show her getting all hot and heavy with a very hipster looking dude. So, irony. [NY Times]
