Taylor Swift Slut-Shamed? Singer Speaks Out

Close

Taylor Swift bravely took a stand for herself and for every female artist in the music industry who experienced slut-shaming.

The "Love Story" singer revealed that she went through a lot as a woman before she got to where she is now -- and the process of getting over the sexism broke her numerous times.

Swift opened up to Zane Lowe in her recent interview on Apple Music's Beats 1, remembering the times she dealt with all slut-shame critics.

She began her almost tell-all dialog by telling how people made a slideshow of her dating life within the 23 years of her existence. According to her, people reduced her by slut-shaming her and tagging the way she wrote as a kind of "trick" -- not "a skill and a craft."

As she started performing under the spotlight at a very young age, the now-29-year old "Shake It Off" hitmaker admitted that she saw how unfair the world was to her that even her teenage dating life was also criticized.

"It's a way to take a woman who's doing her job and succeeding at doing her job and making things. And in a way, it's figuring out how to completely minimize that skill by taking something that everyone in their darkest, darkest moments loves to do, which is just to slut shame," Swift shared.

Swift dated numerous artists like Joe Jonas, Taylor Lauther, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy, Harry Styles, Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston. She also composed songs dedicated to her exes that, according to her, led people to see him not as an artist.

Currently, she is dating Joe Alwyn, the British actor who became Swift's inspiration for her "Lover" album. Following her series of break ups and the rise of the #MeToo movement, everything about slut-shaming evetually came to an end.

#MeToo Movement Pushed Swift

Swift expressed her gratitute towards the #MeToo movement that ended slut-shaming and helped her rebuild herself again.

"Anybody who puts anything out into the world, if it has a bit of success now that comes with scrutiny," she declared.

Swift went on differentiating the treatments between male and female artists, and how the society seemed to only see the negative side of female artists who only seek for love, money, and success.

The singer, through the #MeToo movement, finally spoke up for women and helped spread body positivity.

She began pulling up a lot of new artists and colleagues who, like her, received the same criticisms from the society. In general, she told everyone not to let those things affect them and focus on polishing their craft.

Some of the female co-artists she mentioned were Selena Gomez, Halsey and Lana Del Rey.
