Of course Tay­lor Swift would want to emu­late artists who sold mil­lions, and of course doing so means iron­ing out the coun­try, idling away from the spe­cif­ic. As of this month, just over five mil­lion copies of 1989 have been sold in the Unit­ed States; oth­er than Drake’s lat­est, it’s the only album to sell over a mil­lion copies in 2015. In the pic­tures pub­li­ciz­ing Swift’s 1989 tour, the glit­ter rompers and pyrotech­nics and celebri­ty cameos all add up to this new “pop” Swift, one with end­less oppor­tu­ni­ties, end­less ways she could live her life. This is the way she’s liv­ing her life. It looks fun, if also a lit­tle dis­ap­point­ing.
