* NightmareFuel: The music video for "Blank Space", and the AMA performance of the same. While it's played partly for [[BlackComedy dark laughs]], Taylor plays AxCrazy surprisingly well. "Got a long list of ex-lovers, they'll tell you I'm insane" indeed.

** The first two videos teasing her sixth album, posted to her official Tumblr, are gritty, dark, unfocused videos of a snake's tail. Okay, a little odd, but not too bad. The ''third'', however, features a snake ''lunging right at you''! It's remarkably creepy for a silent ten-second clip, especially if you already have a fear of snakes.

* {{Astroturf}}: Following the release of ''1989'' she has been ''everywhere'', well beyond the point of overexposure. Enough that Swift herself has acknowledged it, saying [[http://www.cbsnews.com/news/taylor-swift-i-think-people-might-need-a-break-from-me/ "I think people may need a break from me"]] in regards to her planned 2016 sabbatical.



* HypeBacklash: While she's still considerably popular, some of the general public grew tired of her promotional campaign for ''1989.'' Taylor acknowledged this and was noticeably quiet in the latter half of 2016.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomBerserkButton: Saying she "only writes songs about breakups" is sure to draw the ire of fans, who will be quick to point out that, 1) plenty of other artists write songs about breakups, and no one seems to mind when ''they'' do it, 2) the joke is seriously old, and 3) it's not true. (She has ''plenty'' of {{Breakup Song}}s, yes, but a quick glance at her discography proves it's far from her only topic.)

** The Spotify debacle has proved to be extraordinary divisive, whether it's just Taylor and the record label asserting their right to distribute and market her music the way she pleases, or a money-grubbing move trying to milk every dollar possible from the album's popularity (Even though artists like Ed Sheeran wound up making over four ''million'' pounds from Spotify at one point) and one that encourages even more internet piracy. Taylor essentially blackmailing iTunes by threatening to pull her music from there was also seen as an attempt to shake a few more pennies out of the bank.

Taylor essentially blackmailing iTunes by threatening to pull her music from there was also seen as an attempt to shake a few more pennies out of the bank. All that said, in June 2017, Taylor's entire back catalogue was finally put back on streaming services, ostensibly to celebrate ''1989'' selling ten million copies (though it's worthy of note that this happened on the same night that Music/KatyPerry's ''Witness'' album dropped).



* GrowingTheBeard: Let's face it; the more pop she got, the more Beard she grew. Unless you ask a country fan, who'll feel ''very'' strongly toward the opposite.

** Some people suspect Shake It Off's rap verse near the end is just a corporate thing meant to appeal to the modern crowd- hell, some people accuse ''the whole song'' of being pandering to modern fans who only like synthetic music.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "Blank Space" sounds quite a bit like Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love."

* HoYay: "Bad Blood" sounds like a breakup song, but WordOfGod says it's about a female friend. Throw in the fact that in the video she was betrayed by a girl (played by Creator/SelenaGomez) and it's tough not to hear it as sounding like a slighted lover with boatloads of LesYay.

* LesYay: With best friend and Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss. She and SelenaGomez also gave each other a playful spank on the ass when Taytay brought Selena in to sing with her in concert.

*** Of course, bringing this up is *guaranteed* to result in fans pointing out that Kanye never mentions the "I made that bitch famous" line in any of the videos (and that the part where he would have is conveniently missing), something Swift herself was quick to point out too. And had always said was her main issue

* DudeNotFunny: Katy Perry wasn't very happy when it was suspected that "Bad Blood" was apparently about her. See this [[https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6244093/katy-perry-taylor-swift-bad-blood-tweet article]].

** Back during her "Love Story" phase, she did a live cover of "A Sorta Fairytale" by Music/ToriAmos. Showing a recording of it to a Toriphile is likely to induce a rage-filled rant (Taylor's rendition being, arguably, a shining example of TheyJustDidntCare, not to mention the suspicions that she chose the song ''solely'' because it had the word "fairytale" in the title).
