I know I am the last person who should be asking you for anything given the ridiculous amount of time it’s been since I last posted a sketch, but I’m hoping you’ll help me anyway. I can understand if you don’t want to, but I would greatly appreciate it.
I’m writing a research paper on concerts and costumes and including a case study on Taylor Swift. I’m wondering if you know of any interviews or articles where the author or Taylor discusses the costumes on her various tours. It’s only if you have any ideas handy though, I definitely don’t want you to go into lengthy research.
Also, if you have any opinion on her costumes and whether or not they had any effect on your enjoyment of the concert, I would love to hear from you.
Thank you so much! I will try to post sketches as soon as possible, but unfortunately school and work have gotten the best of me once again. It’s the craziest it’s ever been, but I would like to find some time to draw.
Well for me, when I think about them, when I think about my fans as a group, um, I just think of the little things. I think about the letters I get from classrooms and I think about the YouTube videos my mom sends me of a little girl opening her Christmas present and it’s tickets to my show and she freaks out. I think about videos of young girls who are playing a song on guitar and they just learned. I think of, um, sometimes I’ll sit in a position where I can watch people leave the shows, not trying to be creepy, it sounds creepy, but I will watch people leave the shows and I’ll look at their signs, um, and I’ll look at the shirts that they made or I’ll look at, some people cover themselves in Christmas lights just so that we can see them from the stage. Those little things are the things that flash through my mind. Or sometimes I’ll go and stalk my fans Twitter pages. Which also sounds really creepy, I’m blowing this. Um, but I’ll look at how, you know how sometimes fans have a reputation of being like bullies or aggressive or kind of rude to other artists or something. I just feel so proud that my fans are always nice to other fans. They’re always nice to each other. They don’t really say hateful things or say they’re going to set people on fire or anything. All those things, put together as a group is what I think of when my name gets called. I don’t really think about it being for me, because they’re the ones who did all those things.
That version of Red was absolutely amazing. And did you guys hear her voice? So perfect.
