But I should be enjoying this!

Taylor Swift shows us love in the 21st century. On point. I’d add that Taylor also embodies a sense of self-delusion observed among many millenial women.

“go on too many dates, but I can’t make them stay
At least that’s what people say, that’s what people say
I shake it off, I shake it off.”

Women are expected to enjoy independence and freedom which is what Taylor tries to portray, but it is plain as daylight that she worries about all these sexy men pumping and dumping her, and that she similarly worries about what people will say of it.

Beyonce shows similar self-delusion in the intro of Hold Up, where she talks for 90 seconds about levitation, the devil, the bible, finding her soul and whatnot before finally coming to the only point she really cares about: ‘is he cheating on me?’ The rest of the video she supposedly hands out Woman’s Righteous Fury, but really she is just acting like a messed-up child.

The song itself is good. The dress is horrible.
