Dear Hope: Obsessed with Taylor Swift
Why are all my friends so obsessed with Taylor Swift? I just don’t get it. I mean her music is ok, but what is it that makes them freak out over everything she does. How can I get them to chill out about it? That is all we ever talk about. Taylor Swift everything. I know more about her than I do my friends.
It’s not uncommon for people to admire someone. They may enjoy her music, but probably also look up to her. I understand being frustrated if that is the only conversation you ever have. Let your friends know how you feel. Explain that you don’t mind talking about her, but you want to talk about other things too. Bring up topics that interest you. You can’t expect them to stop talking about her completely, but you should also have a turn. Listen and talk to them about Taylor Swift and they should give you the same respect back.
Thank you for being brave and sending in your question.
