It's essentially impossible to avoid Taylor Swift.
She writes the type of catchy, radio friendly pop tunes that burrow into your subconsciousness whether you want them there or not. She also tends to pop up in unexpected places, in cameo roles on TV shows like New Girl and CSI or in animated form in The Lorax.

Swift is also remarkably prolific for someone who's only 23, with all kinds of awards and accolades to her name, and an estimated net worth of over $165 million.
In a lot of ways, Swift is a positive role model for the legions of teen and pre-teen girls who idolize her and rush to her defense on social media sites when someone belittles their hero. Read: Parking plans for Swift concert at Investors Group Field
Unlike a lot of other young celebrities, she doesn't have embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, a mugshot, or pass out drunk in alleys, but does donate her time and money to causes like arts education, disaster relief, LGBT equality and children's literacy.

And when Kanye West famously interrupted Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, it instantly endeared her to music fans across the globe. And her star continued to rise.
But that was four years ago. And although Swift is playing to a sold out crowd of dedicated fans at Investors Group Field on Saturday, there is some indication that the backlash against America's newest sweetheart has begun.
A piece titled "10 annoying things about Taylor Swift" was posted on Sun Media, Cover Girl didn't renew her contract as a spokesperson and a recent article in Women's Wear Daily
reported that magazine covers featuring Swift don't sell as well as those with covershots of Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani or Adele.

Part of the drama that continues to swirl around Swift has to do with the number of failed relationships she's had.
Like most famous people, Swift dates a lot of other
famous people. But she's known for putting it all out there, writing post-breakup songs about exes like Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer.
And in a way that just doesn't happen with male celebrities, Swift's serial dating of headline grabbers like Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles has become a point of judgment and ridicule.
Swift didn't help herself when she sidestepped a question from a Daily Beast
reporter who asked if the pop star considered herself a feminist. While she didn't offer a direct answer, part of her
response was, "I was raised by parents who brought me up to think if you
work as hard as guys, you can go far in life."
Feminists didn't appreciate one of the most prominent role models to young women refusing to step up and speak out. And were likely even more surprised when Swift later played the girl power card.

It happened after a Golden Globes broadcast that poked fun at just about everybody, when hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey joked about her romantic prowess, telling Swift to "stay away" from Michael J. Fox's 23-year-old son.
Swift later responded to the joke with a Madeleine Albright quote Katie Couric told her: "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."
And when you think about Swift and her audience of young, very impressionable girls, shouldn't that same rule then apply to her?
One of Swift's fans wasn't willing to wait to find out.
Brown University student Clara Beyer is a Swift fan, but wishes the singer would move on from her wholesome, youthful image and inject a little more grownup power into her lyrics.
Enter the Feminist Taylor Swift Twitter account.
On June 12, Beyer sent the first of what would become a series of tweets that rework Swift song lyrics and make then a little more progressive.

The first one was a play on the track, "You Belong to Me" changing the words to: "She wears short skirts / I wear T-shirts / Neither of us is asking for it."
As the tweets continued, Twitter users quickly found them and @feministswift already has over 100,000 followers.
Ironically, the Feminist Swift account's latest tweet echoes Swift's reaction to Fey and Poehler's Golden Globe joke: "I bet you got pushed around / Somebody made you cold / But the cycle of
girl-on-girl aggression ends right now / 'Cause we should be allies."
