I’m hardly a country music fan and not much of a pop fan, either, but I recently saw a 60 minutes interview about Taylor Swift. Apparently all it takes for me to check out a musician is a 60 minutes interview.
Anyways, I saw this video from Taylor Swift for her song “Mean” and my interest peaked. It was nice to see a hint that it’s okay to be gay as a teenager. In the video, there’s a boy reading a fashion magazine in a lockeroom, obviously being “bullied” by some other dudes. It’s a pretty stereotypical, overt hint: well-dressed boy in a purple sweater reading a fashion magazine? – but the sentiment is nice.
