All You're Ever Gonna Be Is Mean

     I'm always a little behind the times. I just watched this video for the first time today even though I know all the words off by heart by now (I'm a huge Taylor Swift fan- FYI). Although this isn't my favorite song off her Speak Now album, I just love that she isn't afraid to be honest in her songs. The video is different, there's no skanky-ness going on (props for that), and I love the message of rising above the people who are mean to you. I think we can all relate to that. (An aside: the little girl from Ramona and Beezus is in the video too.)
      Well, this isn't much of a post, I know, but I love watching videos. Tomorrow, after I go to an assembly where my daughter is getting an award (Go Jade!), me and the kids are heading to Cardston. I'm looking forward to seeing family I haven't seen in awhile, but sad for the reason (my Grandma's funeral).
     See you all on Monday for the Lovin' the Language blogfest. Until then...

Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

  1. I like how she brought it in very personal. Some people probably were making fun of her singing (like she mentioned near the end of the song). But why? She's still going to be a superstar. Also, she's a great songwriter.
