Taylor Swift Thinks Fans “Might Need A Break” From Her — And She Is Correct

America’s cookie-making-cat-owning-heel-wearing-best-friend-having sweetheart Taylor Swift has come to her senses. She’s on the cover of British music mag NME, looking like she just passed the dutchie on the left hand side, talking about her massive and never-ending 1989 world tour. In what is perhaps her sharpest moment of clarity to date, Taylor admitted, “I think I should take some time off. I think people might need a break from me.”

Hey, Tay? I never thought I’d say this, ever, but — you’re right. Listen, girl. You’re probably tired. You’ve been on tour for what feels like an entire presidential term. What are your cats doing? How’s your family? Don’t you need to replenish that treasure chest full of vintage nightgowns that you and Karlie Kloss use for dress up when she sleeps over? You’ve been working so hard. I can’t even imagine the work that goes into dredging up guests for you to trot out on stage every night, nor can I fathom the mental and physical energy required to wiggle your twig-like bod into hot pants and flail on stage at night. It must be taxing.  A break — a nice, long, relaxing break — is just the ticket.

Has Taylor gained self-awareness? Maybe. I refuse to believe that Taylor Swift is stupid. She knows what she’s doing. I may not like a single thing that she chooses to do, but I know that all of it is calculated. You don’t become tremendously, monstrously successful without a solid game plan, and she’s had one since the jump. You can see it in her eyes. I respect the hustle, but I cannot abide the hustler. It feels naive to assume that this alleged break isn’t part of a larger plan. For what, I couldn’t tell you, but all I’m saying is this: be glad that she’s talking about taking a breather. Be grateful that maybe, just maybe, you won’t have to hear from her for a while. And then fear what’s coming next.
