    seriously? Says:

    @Jessica Rabbit: this is completely different from “Beautiful”…it’s about different subjects. “Beautiful” is about people criticizing her and her appearance, and her overcoming what they think and believing in herself. This is more about losing love, and wanting someone more than they want you. How is this anything like Christina’s “Beautiful” ?!?!?!?

    She has such a great voice… And she’s really pretty. Glad she lightened up on the raccoon eyes at least a little bit in this video

    The album has many good songs, this is one of my faves, but I don’t really like the video.

    She gave horseface sleep around much a run for her money…..she is better looking and much more talented than blake lively.
    The beautiful Brunette, leeghton Meester has been carrying the show and the acting to date…time to cancel gossip girl!

    LOL Says:

    LOL @ the person who said “hauntingly beautiful”. SERIOUSLY? This is the most boring, generic, cheesy song ever with lyrics that sound like they were written by a 12 year old girl. The ENTIRE song is “You can’t__ me, Like I __ you”, followed by “And I want you in my life, and I need you in my life”. THATS IT!

    The song is repetitive and about as original as hipster glasses. I also love how she is shown playing a guitar, which anyone who has seen them play fully knows Taylor doesn’t know how to play the guitar. In fact, even in the video she isn’t playing it right as she continues to play one chord when the song consists of multiple chords.

    @Jessica Rabbit:

    Lord knows I loath Christina Aguilera, but you comparing this piece or generic trash to “Beautiful” is a crime. I actually LOVE “Beautiful”. Of course Christina didn’t write the song, so really it has little to do with her. But the melody of that song was incredible and haunting. This song is nothing more than a crappy acoustic typical chick love song. Its like a Michelle Branch type song, not my style. “Beautiful” was an all around classic song.

    Charlie Says:

    @LOL: She’s pretending to play an instrument which goes to show how authentic she is. I wish she’d just be herself and stop trying so hard. I have a feeling I would really like her if she did.

    attentionnude Says:

    The song is so boring! And she should get her fake hair cut. I also think she’s very young to make those nude scenes. It makes me think she just got famous for her ‘teen porn’ attitude.

    Anya Says:

    No one can judge an artist by just one song, she can sing, she can play the guitar, she write her own songs, lot of you just dislike her so u will always dislike her music regardless.
    Listen to Light me up, the entire album and most of you will eat your words.
    why comparing all the time? this is Taylor and the pretty reckless, if you dont like her or her music just move along, what’s the point of just post a comment saying she’s a tard.
    and by the way the nude/sex/love scenes were done by a double.

    I really like Tay . And to all of you who thinks that she is too much .
    In america , you guys are way too conservative . This is a simple video for a really beautiful song :)

    What a nice song… I have to listen to her other songs.

    lynda Says:

    LOL: sometimes fancy, poetic words are not needed to express situations and emotions that are deeply felt. I love the clean, spare simplicity of songs like this one. Strawberry swirls and bits of crunch is not better than Vanilla, just different. And sometimes Vanilla is much more fitting and appropriate. Check out some of the greatest songs in history and you will see what I mean.

    And this is coming from someone who has never seen a single episode of Gossip Girl and never heard Taylor’s music. In fact, I just thought she was a trashy looking raccoon-eyed wanna be musician starlet before I heard this song. I was wrong.

    jenn Says:

    Um no she CAN’T play the guitar actually. I have seen her live. She HOLDS the guitar and doesn’t actually play. She strums THE SAME 2 CHORDS during the chorus of ONE SONG, and then stands there holding it for her image.

    She can sing? All I hear is her putting on a fake raspy voice like she is trying to imitate real rock singers.

    And her music sucks as well. It is all generic **** we’ve heard 100000 times before. Name ONE THING that is unique, original about her music? It’s typical cliche poprock.

    Her dumb 12 year old fans see her holding a guitar, and of course thats enough to convince them that she plays. I’ve seen her live too, she can’t play. Look at her album credits, she doesn’t play on a single song. Look at her live. She hold a guitar during one song, “My Medicine”, stands there with it, flicks one or 2 shords for a few seconds, and through most of the song she just holds it.

    Taylor is a manufactured embarrassment. Just like Miley she was given an image and a record deal because shes an actress. The thing that annoys me is, there are REAL female rockers/musicians out there who aren’t popular, that actually have talent and are authentic. But because Taylor was on Gossip Girl, people look at her. How about you pay attention to REAL musicians who are making a name for themselves who didn’t have everything handed to them. And who aren’t using their fake “goth” gimmick to gain a fanbase of 13 year old girls.

    It’s so sad how people are falling for it.

    This is actually my favorite
    song on the album. It’s so beautiful
    and I love the video.

    We’re not “conservative” in America. People hate her not just because she dresses like gutter trash, but because she’s a poser. Maybe in Europe you believe and follow every manufactured gimmick that come down the road, but we don’t.

    Everyone here see’s through her fake “shock rocker” image. Everyone here knows this girl is a model/child actress who is now trying to be something she isn’t because her record label tells her to. Yet every 4 seconds this girl keeps going on and on about how real she is.

    The fact is, she is a joke. She isn’t a real musician. She isn’t some girl who joined a rock band and played gigs trying to make a name for herself until she got signed. She is a spoiled rich model/ actress who got a record deal handed to her because she was on Gossip Girl. Maybe in the UK that is “cool”, but in America we only respect REAL rockers and not posers with a gimmick,

    Ohplease193 Says:

    ^^Keep in mind, I know people here and in Europe make gimmicks like layd gaga and katy perry popular. But the difference is, they’re pop acts and they know it. They embrace it. It’s just pop music.

    ROCK music is supposed to be about authenticity, no gimmicks, just rawness and realness. Taylor has none of those things. Plus her music is anything but real rock music.

    Her looks reminds of Christina Aguilera Dirrty era in 2002.

    MeganP Says:

    She definitely needs to stick to the fast stuff she normally produces. She needs to stay away from soft music, this is too melancholy, flat and just plain boring! The best thing about the song was the music…

  30. 30
    MeganP Says:


    Beautifully stated! She is as fake as fake gets! She used to say, “Oh I was never understood as a child, I was a loner that just listened to Abbey Road, I never had any friends, yadda, yadda, yadda!” Dude, watch ANY of her old interviews, read what she used to tell people while she was on Gossip Girl. She NEVER acted like that! She’s just saying all that **** so people with think she’s cool and awesome and will want people to be like her. If people like her and actually want to be like her, they’re just as diluted and she is…

    haha Says:


    COMPLETELY agree!

    Or better yet, go on her website and click “personal photos”. In it you’ll find DOZENS of photos of Taylor throughout her life, at parties with huge groups of people, hanging out with tons of friends, and boyfriends. Yet she claim she was a “loner”….really? Then why are there 1000′s of photos of you all through your life where you were hanging out with tons of friends? She was bubbly and friendly and the typical “bubbly blonde” before she became a poser.

    She’s a liar. She says that crap to make herself seem dark, cool and deep. Yeah, I’m so sure a tall, thin, blonde MODEL was such a dark outcast “loner” in school. Such a crock.

    Anya Says:

    so much envy, sorry 4 u guys.
    “go to her page”
    “watch her old interviews”
    I think you are paying wayyy too much attention to someone who is a poser detectives.
    She cant play the guitar LOL, but she cannn sing and she got stuff very easy ….wow burn the witch!!!!!!!!!!
    i’d rather listen to her than gaga or justin bieber.
    and by the way her fans around the world are not just 12.
    and she’s no longer jenny! so many wounds in this comments.
    ohhh and i Love Xtina but this has nothing to do with the video beautiful

    NO Says:

    ^^Yes her fans are 12. Look at all of the people who tweet about taylor, look at all of the people on her fan site, look at all peoples youtube profiles who comment and upload her videos. 99% of her fans, are pre teen and teen girls. The internet is living proof of this. Every single time I click on a youtubers page who defends taylor, they are young girls.

    Her fanbase are the girls who have followed her from gossip girl. You cannot even deny that. Not to mention, I have seen her live on 2 occasions (not because of her, she went on warped tour with 200 other people) and EVERY PERSON who screamed for her when she came on were 15 year old girls.They were dressed in heavy racoon makeup and wearing ****** clothes like her.

    Taylor may try to be hardcore, but in all reality the FACT is, her audience’s age group is 13-18. Of course, every so often once in a while someone out of that range will be the exception. But this is the case 99% of the time.
