So . . . I read that she broke up with her latest boyfriend, a member of that British boy band, "something" Direction, because he wouldn't get circumcised??

Holy shit. Please tell me you don't actually believe that. Just Googled it, and apparently it was in the god damn National Enquirer.

Can you please refrain from coming into this thread spouting off shit that you read in supermarket checkout line trash like the fucking NATIONAL ENQUIRER? Thank you.

And now moving on. Mobvok, or anyone else, what say you about tonight's tour premiere set list?

Ignoring the tinaandamy business, what I didn't like in Swift's Vanity Fair interview is that she "authorized" an anonymous person to talk shit about Harry Styles. Either talk about it or don't, but own your characterization of it, don't launder it.

I'm not sure how much to read in about one night's setlist. This is a really dull thought, I admit, but maybe she was just excited to put as many songs out there live as possible for the start of the tour? I did a quick check of U2Tours.com and it wasn't until ZooTV that U2 started putting 20+ songs out there, and if you're hovering around 15-17 songs a set then given that, there's not a whole lot of room for much else.

I like that Holy Ground took the #2 slot; I think it's an underrated track.

A lesson from Taylor Swift live recordings on youtube is that her audience consists of naturally born vuvuzelas that are death to any handheld recording attempts

HOW CAN YOU SCREAM AT THAT FREQUENCY

Yeah, I liked that as well actually. State of Grace -> Holy Ground is a killer opener. Two of my favorites on the album most definitely.

Also catching my eye was the "piano version" of All Too Well. One of her best songs, and I'm looking forward to hearing some good quality audio of a potentially stripped down piano version.

speaking of piano

Taylor Swift -You're Not Sorry/What Goes Around - 720p HD Portland - YouTube

I might have posted this in the Speak Now thread, but this is a smooth merge of You're Not Sorry and What Goes Around from the fearless tour. Like hearing her band mix things up.

Yes, man. Always liked that. You're Not Sorry kicks ass.

And that's what I'm talking about with this setlist from tonight. A song exactly like that. Do you know how apeshit her fans would go if she somehow busted out something like that...like a You're Not Sorry, or maybe Change or Hey Stephen or the title track from Fearless, or something like Picture To Burn or Tim McGraw or A Place In This World off the debut? I know I would.

I really hope she mixes in some of that older stuff, but I highly doubt it.

First time hearing 22 on the radio. Real life quote: "hey, a new Carly Rae Jepsen single!" Took me a second to tell who was singing.

Really not feeling Taylor as a pop starlet. If she wanted to do something different, she should have picked State of Grace. That's a great song.

I'm pretty over Taylor at this point, especially if I now can't even see her live.

If the set list stays as is, I mean. I fell in love with the country starlet, not this pop princess wannabe.

Ehhh, well that sucks that you've soured on her as much as you have.

And I complain about the current setlist, but I still know the show would be an absolute blast for anyone that's even remotely a fan.

Last night, on night 2 of the tour, she played five songs pre-RED:

You Belong Wif Me
Mean
White Horse
Sparks Fly
Love Story

Tell me that wouldn't be great. (Love the addition of White Horse. I hope she uses that spot in the set to maybe rotate in some of the older tracks.)

Add to that the big, arena-made stuff from RED, and this shit would go down. I still think the set could be a lot better, with a couple more of the early biz, but I'd wager that you'd have a good time. Unless you really do just hate her now.

If I didn't hate half of red it would be great. I just can't believe there's nothing from the debut.

Well, she played "Should've Said No" tonight. The debut is alive!

Fucking awesome. Maybe she was reading this thread.
