What’s making me happy this week? Well, it’s what is making every white woman in America happy–new Taylor Swift music. Specifically, the freaking BOP that is Mr. Perfectly Fine.
Give it a listen
I think my favorite part about this is that it’s clearly about Joe Jonas, her Fearless-era breakup via a 27 second phone call, etc. And that Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas’s wife, shared that she was listening to it on Instagram. The internet loves this stuff.
And so do I, because I think it reminds us of what a lot of people loved about driver’s license. Sometimes, a breakup DOES feel like the end of the world. And you can write a killer song about it. And it’s not a dig at someone you broke up with a decade ago to release it now. It’s a good song. You’re both grown people. One of you has a wife and child. It’s not a “dig” in that she’s trying to say you’re still like that. It was capturing a moment in time, the aftermath of a breakup, and we can all bop along to it without trying to make “drama” about it.
So yes, Mr. Perfectly Fine is what is making me happy this week, and I can’t wait for Fearless (Taylor’s Version) to hit my Iphone music app because I still buy music like a NERD.
