Swift Threatened By Kasey Musgraves

kasey-katyTaylor Swift is threatened by rising country music star Kacey Musgraves. Kacey won the Grammy for Best Country Album this year, in a category that Taylor was also nominated in and lost. Source told The Enquirer:

‘Taylor is used to having all of the young country stars bowing down before her, but Kacey barely gives her the time of day. Taylor doesn’t like Kacey, and the feeling is certainly mutual.’ Taylor is jealous that Kacey is popular, pretty, and talented – and has a much more outgoing and outspoken personality than her, which means that she’ll continue to dominate the headlines.

Taylor also had to cancel her Bangkok, Thailand concert: ‘I’m sending my love to the fans in Thailand. I’m so sad about the concert being canceled.’ Thailand came under military rule last week. Taylor has since rescheduled another concert nearby.

    I think that there is a good chance that she might attract some of Taylor’s long-time country fans because Taylor’s music can hardly be characterized as country anymore, her new music is basically pure pop. Real country music fans are going to like Kacey’s music more. With that being said Taylor has a very strong fanbase so losing a few fans here and there won’t really matter..

    Yeahhhh she rescheduled her concert to Singapore woohoo! Anyways, she shouldn’t feel bad over not winning Best Country Album, her songs are non-country now lol

  • laura

    Maybe because Taylor is pop now instead of country?

    For all we know, this story is completely false and was made up to try to cause drama. However, it could be true. But we will never know.

    Taylor’s new publicist, Tree Paine, confirmed that everything The Enquirer says about Taylor is absolute bullshit. They’re always trying to make it seem like hw women are against each other and that Taylor is this corny ‘highschool mean girl who hates new unique chick’ kinda girl. which she isnt so this is obv bs

  • honesty

    Taylor has nothing to worry about.

    Even tho Taylor isn’t really country anymore, she still has a strong fan following, so if I were her I wouldn’t feel the least bit threatened. I’m not really a big country fan, so that’s probably why I’ve never heard of her. I thought it was Lea Michele at first

  • Duckyhoward15

    Taylor is huge I doubt Kasey will get as famous as her

  • kat

    So fake! Taylor gets along with Kacey. Taylor requested for Kacey to sit with her at the CMT awards last year. Plus, Taylor is one of the most outgoing and nice person in the industry. She totally isn’t shy. She’s been doing this for almost a decade, she definetely isn’t worried about competition when she’s selling out arenas internationally. I don’t know any other country artist that can sell out in Asia.

  • Grammy Winner Taylor Swift

    The bimbos and idiots that buy 2014’s terrible country music aren’t even buying Kacey’s music.

    That means she’s even too talentless for the most talentless music genre.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Extreme photoshop to that Kacey girl’s face.

  • ayy lmao

    Well I didn’t know who she was until I saw this, so…

    I don’t believe this story. I do not believe Taylor holds hatred for any up and coming artists and I don’t think Kacey Musgraves is that stupid to diss Taylor Swift. I DO believe that Taylor is in danger of losing her country fans, and Kacey might take them if Taylor abandons the genre completely. Taylor virtually isn’t country anymore and Kacey has a good grasp of what Taylor was trying to balance with pop and country. But Taylor has so much success that she can return to her country roots with her fans waiting patiently. Another thing is that Taylor has gotten less relatable over the years. “Teardrops On My Guitar” can resonate to a lot more people than say, “I Knew You Were Trouble.” She’s steadily been putting out songs that are good with the charts, but have been less honest if you go by her first album to her last. I adore her and think she’s a fantastic musician and artist. But I miss the simplicity of her. That’s what Kacey Musgraves gives now. A lot of you bashing her because you believe this lie of a story probably hasn’t listened to her album, which a lot of people who don’t like country are hesitant to do. Her album “Same Trailer, Different Park” was arguably the best album of 2013. It was brutally honest and heartbreaking and funny and clever and everything that makes a good album. And a lot of people can relate to it- whole towns can, especially if you live in middle America, as opposed to where Taylor specializes in music for young girls exclusively. My grandpa can’t sing along to “White Horse” with conviction, but he can sing along to “Blowin’ Smoke.” The whole album has this nostalgic sadness that you can picture yourself feeling and it’s incredibly Americana. It’s a piece of art. Please don’t judge Kacey Musgraves on this bullshit story. And just because you don’t know her, doesn’t mean she’s not the next big thing. There was a time no one knew Taylor either. Both girls have their strengths and weaknesses- Taylor is more famous and Kacey has the country advantage. But both girls are beautiful, talented, and are worthy of all the good recognition they get. Stop pitting the women against each other. Love them both and be happy they aren’t pulling a Miley to get album sales— celebrate the small amount of class in the music industry while it’s here. Listen to Kacey’s album before you judge her. You’ll agree with me when you see that they need to collaborate more than any other artist’s do.

    This is so dumb. Why would Taylor be jealous of Kacey’s popularity lol. I really like Kacey’s music too, she deserved that Grammy.
