The article was on Fox News as well. The news was all over the place.
The idea that a good singer (we'll pass over the debate on Taylor's merit as a singer for now) is somehow also an authority on philosophy, religion, politics, the environment, nuclear physics, foreign policy, or anything else is pretty ludicrous if you think about it for longer than 3 seconds.
A lot of conservatives, myself included, say to Taylor: "Just go sing your teeny bopper music, and shut up about things you haven't a clue about." Her opinion is less than or equal to any other random 26 year old, including the unemployed, Starbucks employees, cashiers, street sweepers, the list is endless.
