If I didn't think Taylor Swift was more basic than taking a selfie with a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, I probably would care a little more that she decided to not come to San Antonio for her next tour.
Yes, you read that correctly. Kanye West’s best friend (sarcasm obvs) just announced dates for her reputation tour with the only Texas stops being Houston (September 29, NRG Stadium) and Arlington (October 6, AT&T Stadium), forcing Swifties here in the Alamo City to travel hours to watch the 27-year-old performer lip-sync (I don’t think she actually lip-syncs, I’m just being shady).
And look, it’s not like I don’t like pop. That last Lady Gaga record slayed me on multiple levels and, as a queer 31-year-old, pretty much everything Madonna circa ‘89-’96 is nothing short of iconic. It’s just that, there’s so much better pop out there for us to consume (see: Beyonce, Janelle Monae, Kehlani), that we shouldn't settle for less.
