Taylor Swift’s Tears & Justin Bieber’s Purpose

Taylor Swift’s Tears & Justin Bieber’s Purpose

taylor swift sad grammy loss 2015 gossipIn a new interview with Grammy Pro, pop star Taylor Swift opened up about her reaction to not winning the Album of the Year Grammy for Red back in 2014. She revealed to the media platform, “I remember not going to after-parties. I went home, and I cried a little bit, and I got In-N-Out Burger and ate a lot.”

At the 2014 Grammy Awards, Taylor’s album lost to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, which included the hit song “Get Lucky” that features Pharrell Williams. However, the 1989 artist shouldn’t be too upset, as she has earned a total of 7 Grammy Awards for herself.

Taylor went on to explain, “We don’t make music so we can like win a lot of awards, but you have to take your cues from somewhere if you’re going to continue to evolve.” Here, Taylor refers to her decision to part ways with her country sound and rebrand herself as a pop artist.

Later in the interview, Swift says, “You have a few options when you don’t win an award. For one, you can decide like, ‘Ugh, they’re wrong. They all voted wrong.’ Second you can be like, ‘I’m going to go up on the stage and take the mic from whoever did win it,’ or third, you can say, ‘Maybe they’re right.’ Maybe I did not make the record of my career. Maybe I need to fix the problem, which was that I have not been making sonically cohesive albums. I need to really think about whether I’m listening to a scared record label and what that’s doing to the art I’m making.”

She recounts going to bed after the Award show and waking up with the idea of her latest album 1989. She told Grammy Pro, she remembers thinking that night, “I’m calling it a pop record. I’m not listening to anyone at the record label. I’m starting tomorrow.”

The young singer posted various versions of the album cover art for Purpose to his Instagram earlier today, seemingly trying to direct the attention away from his nakedness and onto his upcoming music.

The album shows a shirtless Bieber with his head bowed down and his hands in a prayer-like position. The singer is surrounded by graffiti art, much like what he has been featuring in his videos for “Where Are U Now” and “What Do You Mean?”

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Justin’s father got the memo when it came to trying to move past the photo scandal. Things got all kinds of weird, when Justin’s father Jeremy Bieber took to Instagram to comment on Justin’s nude shots. Not only did Jeremy call Justin’s southern region a “beaut,” but he also direct tweeted him asking, “what do you feed that thing.” Of course, he wisely pulled them down.

Fortunately for Justin, his album is out on November 13 and since he hasn’t released a proper album since 2012’s Believe, it will likely garner a fair amount of attention (and therefore take some away from the recent scandal). In addition, many people are anticipating the rival between the Bieb’s and One Direction, since they are releasing their albums on the same day.

Nonetheless, I have a feeling Justin isn’t going to be too happy with his dad’s questionable remarks.
