Outrage: There May Be A Taylor Swift-Themed Glee Episode!
There have been conversations," the young singing sensation teased of her guest-starring in the hit show `Glee`.
There is speculation, fueled by Taylor Swift`s recent comments, that she may guest star on Glee.
Glee has showcased the music of Lady Madonna, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. These entertainers are certified icons whose influence transcends the realm of music. Even Lady Gaga in her short time in the spotlight has established herself as a pop diva who is one of the most influential persons in the world.
Taylor Swift seems to be a lovely young woman, but at this point she is nothing but a flash in the pan. Swift`s influence is limited to tweens who imitate her sense of style.
If Glee does a Taylor Swift-themed episode they will lose their older fans. This middle-aged pundit will be unable to recommend Glee to his friends, if the show starts paying homage to bubblegum pop stars.
We all feel sorry for the way Kanye West humiliated Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Awards show, but let`s not go overboard and lavish her with honors that she hasn`t earned.
If Glee does a Taylor Swift tribute episode, I will never again watch the show and I will advise my legions of readers to avoid the show like the plague.
