    How can anyone call We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together “country”???? Selling over 200,000 singles of two different songs is a great accomplishment, there is not need to twist facts to make it seem better than it is, though.

    “Ronan” is truly incredible. Her talent is highly underrated on this site.

    since when is her music considered country?because there are banjoes in?and especially this song, is nothing more than pure pop. billboard sucks

    Gia Says:

    Concur with everyone and her silly new try-hard to be royal style lately.
    The thing is, is its not like she is dating some classy guy like JFK, jr.
    It is an 18 year old kid Kennedy who is not even out of high school yet. She is really living In fantasy.
    She creates it in her mind and then whines about it in a song afterwards when low and behold, it doesn’t work out.
    She’s going to be kept letting down if she continues to make poor choices and concocting things in her head that aren’t real.

    Viv Says:

    The first album at least tried to becountry.
    It did have banjos and she sang about Tim McGraw and pick up trucks.
    And she had a country twang in the songs.
    Since then it has not been country at all but country always claims her, it’s dumb. They have lots of othe country stars but I guess since seethe most well-known country always wants to claim her.

    Honestly Says:

    As a country artist myself, I have to say something. Taylor is NOT country whatsoever and never has been. The fact that she wins country award after country award is rather insulting to people like The Judds, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, hell – Even Martina McBride and Reba McEntire. It’s a HUGE slap in the face. She’s a disgrace to country music and needs to move over to pop. She’s tarnishing a genre of music with a rich, raw history.

    alonimaw Says:

    @Honestly, Taylor IS country. she is a country-pop artist, and a very talented one, the best in the music industry as of right now. YOU are a disgrace to the human race, you are a nothing, a sour puss wanna be who will never be anything but that in your lifetime. Yeah, that’s right, type those hateful comments about her while she wins and breaks record after record. Peace. :P
