Instead of an author’s signature, the American music magazine’s review of TTPD displays the words “Staff of Paste .” The content inside does not have much positivity for the singer born in 1989, instead questioning her songwriting ability in her 11th studio album.

According to the anonymous critic, Fortnight is so lackluster and outdated that it makes listeners “suffocate”. The author believes that the title song has the worst lyrics ever among Taylor’s hits. Not only Taylor, this person also criticized producer Jack Antonoff and male guest artist Post Malone for not getting along with the female singer.

Not stopping there, Paste magazine commented that the blonde beauty no longer feels challenged to create better music products. According to the author, despite the decline in quality, TTPD still helped Taylor’s billion-dollar fortune increase.

In addition, the article seems to question whether Taylor can be called The Tortured Poets when he is a billionaire, owning “dozens of beach houses around the world.

Netizens commented: “What a trash review written by someone who wants Taylor to fail. I used to respect your publication, but not anymore after this 100% biased review”, “Where are the music reviews? This is a gossipy article”, “Readers disagree with the article if all that is included is a dig into Taylor’s personal life instead of her music, please do better” , “I disagree with most of this assessment, but I respect your decision to protect your employees. They don’t deserve to be hunted for their views on art”…

Taylor Swift did not directly respond to Paste magazine’s criticism. However, the “snake queen” has a clear response. Accordingly, she posted a number of positive reviews about TTPD on Instagram Story from major newspapers such as Rolling Stone, The Times, The Independent
