In a way, though, Swift was being called out. Not for being nominated for a VMA but because she has failed, at least publicly, to consider her role in perpetuating beauty standards that are impossible for most women to live up to.
Jesus H. Whiz, man. Taylor Swift doesn't have an impossible body type ( that would actually be Nicki Minaj). She's simply thin, someone who is merely not-fat
. I hate that as obesity skyrockets, and diabetes kills more and more, people who are merely thin and quasi-healthy are being branded as having impossible bodies
. It's insane, not to mention dangerous.
