She then added, “For the record this is my very first documented pop album.”

Shake It Off,” sees TayTay reunite with Max Martin and Shellback on a upbeat, haters-gonna-hate pop anthem driven by a gitty dance beat and subtle saxophone line. It’s nothing out of this world but its a fun little number that will undeniably certify her another hit so get used to it.

“I’ve had every part of my life dissected — my choices, my actions, my words, my body, my style, my music,” Taylor told Rolling Stone about the new single. “When you live your life under that kind of scrutiny, you can either let it break you, or you can get really good at dodging punches. And when one lands, you know how to deal with it. And I guess the way that I deal with it is to shake it off.”

    I’m sorry but if I am going to be honest the song is Lame. She really needs to start focusing on a more mature sound and lyrics if she wants to stick around for much longer. I mean people were already starting to make fun of her during her last album with her juvenile songs.

    Taylor is smart and individualistic and people relate to it easily. She’s like, “and yes you can charge that song to your iTunes account. Bye!”

        Her last album that came out two years ago was the last album to debut with over a million in the first week. No one has done it since. You are delusional if you think she’s going away.

    Ok she may not be breaking any ground, or maturing or sticking to country, but the world needs some good girl pop. And no one makes it quite like Taylor. Not saying I’m in love with this, but I like the feel good vibes.

    “Got nothin’ in my brain” 🙂 Right on the money, lol. This is not a “sick beat”, as she proclaims, but it’s good pop fun. Must she have included the twerking??

    Well… I think you gotta understand at some point that there is people who can mature musically and visually, create awesome songs with deep meaning, write heartbreaking songs and why not? have fun some times and then… well then is Taylor Swift who apparently plans to stay at age 14 mentally for the rest of her life and be a walking joke while she dates guys only for attention, good thing is people finally is getting tired of her act.
