Deadspin drunken hookup failures 2011


Welcome to Great Moments in Drunken Hookup Failure, where we showcase two heartwarming true stories of drunken love gone horribly awry. Off we go.

And this is exactly what she does on the new Reputation , which garbs itself in the black dress of a heel turn but, in a surprise feint, just hops in an Uber to the club instead. All those menacing song titles snake their way toward straightforward romance: “Don’t Blame Me,” she says, she was merely in love; on “Delicate,” she sings, “My reputation’s never been worse… so you must like me for me”; the romance described as a “Getaway Car” ends up being a story of Taylor, hands on the wheel, speeding toward a new horizon. Even the celebrity beefs that she frets over as a sort of ambient menace get flipped narratively. The elliptical Kanye disses on “Look What You Made Me Do” and “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” transform a narrative that traditionally positions her as the wronged party—her VMA moment ruined by a drunken boor, her phone call recorded against her will—into one where she is again empowered, “taking an ax to a mended fence” and “getting harder in the nick of time.” The old Taylor is very much fine, in other words, despite reports to the contrary.
