Is Taylor Swift a Victim or a Bully?

    Okay, so everyone knows that Taylor Swift has no problem calling out ex-boyfriends in her songs. The superstar made one of her most pointed barbs in history Sunday night at the 55th annual Grammy Awards, however, when she took what appeared to be an unmistakable shot at One Directions Harry Styles during her opening number.
    Swift used the spoken bridge of her hit We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, to seemingly slam her recent ex Styles, abruptly switching into an exaggerated English accent (Styles is British). So he calls me up and hes like Ah still louve you, she drawled. And I'm like 'Im sorry, I'm busy opening up the Grammys┬Žand we are never getting back together!' Bam.

    It's getting to the point that Taylor seems to date any man just for the sake of breaking up and writing about them. Granted some were jerks(John Meyer) but the latest ones were nice enough.
    Micheal j Fox does not want her to date his son at all!

    Victim? Not. Bully? Don't know. Savvy business woman? Way, yes! Naive and green when it come to relationships? Probably. She'll be just fine.

      Yeah, she wanted a different sound on her Red album, called the instant hit makers, Max Martin/Shellback.
      An incident took place while collaborating which suggested she may reunite, Martin suggested writing about it, and the 3 wrote the song. 
      I think you're right about her being a smart businesswoman who obviously listens to her managers.  I doubt very much if she is regretting her opening GRAMMY performance.  Young and naive, of course, weren't we all?  She's only 22.

      She's a celebrity.  It's probably hard to come down to earth when you're as big as she is right now.

    Well, it seems her past two boyfriends were the ones who broke up with her.

    She is just using her experiences smile I don't think she is a victim or a bully.

      I think she's a whiny teenaged girl with the artistic talent to at least make her whining sound good.  If she was any other teenager, her parents would be the only ones who had to listen to her relationship woes.  Because she's Taylor Swift, the world needs to know. 

      I, for one, am bored.  Have a good cry and be done.

        No, she does not, in fact, have the artistic talent to make her whining sound good. She still sounds like a bland, tasteless "Southern" "country" "pop star" who can barely write even the most bare-bones and basic of songs.

          Found a job yet? Maybe you could be a music critic.

            Being a critic would actually be an enjoyable and worthwhile profession. So, of course, there's no money to be made doing it.

    I think she's not a victim but I think it is getting to the point where it comes across as bullying. You shouldn't do something like that on national TV or in the public eye in general and not expect a response.
    A prime example is Justin Timberlake, he broke up with Britney Spears over 11 years ago yet any action he does or says generally or specifically in reference to relationships is still attached to her. While I don't think it's his fault completely, I still think he could be more careful in not feeding the media's appetite to say he's still bitter and I think Taylor can learn from that.
    Adele made a breakup album, fell in love and is surely over it- learn from her!

    "Taylor Swift's boyfriends should get together and write a song called "Maybe it's you"
    Since 2008 she has dated Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Cory Monteith, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lucas Till, Toby Hemingway, Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles.
    Maybe she should slow down a bit.
