You’ve set the bar pretty low! How would she fare next to Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, etc.?Like her or not, Taylor Swift is an excellent song writer. Her voice, at worst, can be categorized as at least Average as far as female pop singers go. (I like her voice.) She's a tremendous, musical talent.
But you're not looking at her in the proper context, IMHO: In today's entertainment world, which is full of no talent a*s clowns, she's actually very talented. Her work would still be wildly successful in the late 1960s to early 1990s.....
