Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Now if you are not in a place people in our listening audience were you're not driving I'm sorry if you're in a place where you're not driving and you have some sort of electronic device in front of you do me the favor of googling Taylor swift I I'll be the man video the man music video okay Google that so you can see Bradley all you have to do is click on the link I provided it made it quite easy for you I'm because what you're going to see is a teaser for her next video called the man and that will drop tomorrow at seven AM now four weeks ago when I would have seen this image I would have had a whole different opinion than they do today the reason I have a different opinion is because I watched the Taylor swift documentary on Netflix and I feel like I've learned a little bit more about her and her motivation for being who she is publicly the reason why this is got people talking is because the image shows a series of archways that are that kind of follow down a hallway yeah it alone not a big deal sure but this is an art form right like Taylor swifties all I love to pick apart her whole thing is a sorry get emotional yes I think what you're saying is the swifties like to read into everything that Taylor swift released and she always gives them a little wink wink in the process does so this archway the reason why people are talking about it is because it is eerily similar to the archway that has become an iconic representation of the home that Kanye west and Kim Kardashian Livin okay we've seen it in architectural magazines we've seen it on her Instagram we've seen this archway time and again and she has mimicked at and is using it to promote her the man video also visible in this picture in this image to promote her video which drops tomorrow R. many different hands in colored gloves yep so like a purple glove and then he'll blow up a glove in a mustard colored glove in a coral love a suit fans have pointed out that there are nineteen hands present god what is that tell me a luminosity what does that number mean she was nineteen years old at the time that Kanye west stole that moment from her interesting now here's what's interesting about this honestly I mean in of itself it's like all that you know she's doing that thing again I can I would have rolled my eyes four weeks ago okay but what I'm realizing now and how did you watch the Taylor swift documentary yes you did okay yes they eat you I did you come away from it with a different sort of idea of what Taylor thinks she's doing with her persona I yeah actually yes and I walked away from his americana having the name of it I totally respect for Taylor swift so I would have thought that she was doing this to try to keep this narrative about Kanye west alive and my criticism of that had always been you're the only one who's keeping it alive you are the only one who seems to be unable to move yourself past this point but after watching this summer americana I actually see differently what she believes she's doing with this narrative is telling a story about what like what women have been suggested SIG what women have been what's the word I'm looking for I don't know what women have been subjected to okay just by virtue of being women mmhm and so I now I see this as like a symbol for what this song is about you you've gone into the shallow and just had a different interpretation right what you're seeing because I do feel like she really she's being very thoughtful about whatever this message is that she's going to be putting forth in this it's not about beating the dead horse of that one time that kind you took her took her spotlight it or about the time that kind a used her image and words that she said without her permission it's not about that long standing feud it's about what it symbolizes and what it has done to her and what people can relate to yeah I just am excited to see this video and see how that plays out in the video yeah and it'll be interesting to see what the videos she's not like Taylor swift is successful for a number of reasons least of which she placed her audience she knows exactly what our audience wants she knows exactly where her audience as evidenced by the fact that her documentary was so successful she has he added are put around her people that are very good at telling a story and so this is clearly the story that she wants to tell and she thinks this is the story that our audience wants to seize it wants to see so it'll be interesting to see that and what that looks like when the video comes out but I mean it would clearly it's going to make sense because she would not be doing this otherwise Taylor swift again is not an individual she's a machine there is an individual bear right but she's telling a story and using that machinery to sell that product but yes yes that's all true and what you learn when you see him miss americana the documentary is you start to get a feel for how much more she really is involved in that process than we ever thought she was yeah and I'm you know listen I am a conspiracy theorist to so I can go to the place of you know are they it was that for show or you know I I understand that I was watching a documentary that she signed off on right so I can understand how maybe the documentary would make it look one way maybe if it's not actually that way I mean it's not gonna be critical of anything she's done right but when you do see how she has these conversations with the very very male senior a group of people who are her advisors no it's a very good message thanks you again I'm what I'm saying is that I think she's very good at what she does and right now she is playing to the people that are watching and listening yeah it would be ridiculous for her to do otherwise yeah I think you don't for as far as he looked like Taylor swift is able to identify that in her career one of the things that has brought her swifties through with her is that she will think that they're kind of grow they've grown up together so like when she experiences something and she writes a song about it the people who are fans of hers are typically in that stage of life or just approaching that stage of life for just leaving that stage of life in a way that that is all relatable to happen to them then when she progresses to our next album there is relatable stuff there so in so many ways the swifties have just gone through things and now I feel like she's realizing she's coming to an agent actually she says as much in the documentary that she's coming to an age where she you can only reinvent yourself so many times in a way that the audience will actually accept and she recognizes that she's kind of on borrowed time and I get this feeling that she's trying to say the things that she feels the need to be said in the way that people can hear them as soon as you possibly can yes so that they will be heard but they're also spinning again they're also smart because they know that this feud gets attention like she's not going to talk about something that's important to her if there's not a way to get attention beyond just her audience right and that's the exact same thing Connie does that's true I mean that is true you may just buy the product that Taylor swift is selling versus the product that Connie selling but I guarantee there is an audience that talks you know as passionately about what kind he's doing and the messages he's putting in his artwork they are very very again that's like that it's not that you and I don't think we ever did this and you can call it conspiracy theory but I think what we do on the show is really just look at what's actually going on verses like I don't think Taylor swift sitting in a back room going how can I screw people not as much money as humanly possible but Taylor swift is a part of an industry she is not just a a woman under herself there is a Taylor swift there right the more fascinating story to me is like how that woman that engages that industry and that machine and what she does with it and there is where I think you can begin to make judgments about the kind of art people are creating and then it just becomes a matter of like who you identify more with if you identify with I mean all the things you're saying are totally relevant to well a lot of our audience for example women right you have women who can totally relate to the kinds of experiences that she's had in that she's gone through yeah and she has been very very successful at giving even younger girls who haven't had those experiences some some resources and some tools and some ways to think about and talk about the world that's around it which is incredibly very helpful also she's selling something whenever somebody selling something I begin to wonder at which point all of her good intentions are gonna run up against her need and desire to have something to sell it has those two things that to me is the interesting part like at what point does Taylor swift walk away from the things that she might hold these values in order to you know push her career further down the road because there because for every Taylor swift yeah there is a woman who didn't play the game the way Taylor swift has played the game and we don't hear her voice we don't see her story her Netflix special person I always think about is Adel because they are contemporaries they are peers they are the same age and Adel has done I you know boy I would love to accept them side by side and like to watch them be interviewed by somebody far more intelligent than I am about the choices that they made along the way during their career and what informs their choices now because what we see Adele doing now is not pumping music I'll write laughed but you know she's an artist and he's a songwriter yeah she never has really tried to fit into a mold I'm in the same way that Taylor swift has I just would be cute I love to look at their careers side by side and see how their how they make because I I also think they're both equally popular in the sense that they're both household names in the same way yeah definitely two entirely different career path yeah I think it does just far more focused on her part I think Taylor right far more focused on being something more than her art but I but I wonder if you talk to Taylor if she would say if she's in her mind I think she believes she is focused on her heart I would do that's what I'm curious about like I would love to see that beat you know flushed out
