It’s been a long week for Swifites, and the cat mom, born in 1989, has finally spoken. Fucked by Ticketmaster us everywherefucked us again, and then againTaylor Swift posted an Instagram Story on Friday to basically say, um, welp.

“Well. It goes without saying that I’m extremely protective of my fans,” she wrote. “We’ve been doing this together for decades and over the years I’ve brought so many elements of my career into the house. I did this SPECIFICALLY to.” improve the quality of my fans’ experience by doing it myself with my team who care as much about my fans as I do.” I’m not sure exactly what kind of statement I expected Swift to make, but I didn’t love being reminded that she does things herself because she’s aware that everyone else sucks. She added that watching this week’s fiasco was “agonizing” as mistakes were made “without recourse”. (Pioneers of antitrust law? Just kidding.)

On Thursday, Ticketmaster announced that 3.5 million fans signed up for the Verified Fan presale, 1.5 million were invited and 14 million showed up. (The blog post has since been deleted.) And on Friday the New York Times reported that the Justice Department has officially opened an antitrust investigation into Live Nation Entertainment – the company’s name after Live Nation and Ticketmaster merged in 2009.

“There are a variety of reasons why people are having such a hard time getting tickets and I’m trying to figure out how this situation can be improved in the future,” she continued. “I will not apologize to anyone because we have asked them several times if they can handle this type of demand and we have been assured that they could.”

I’m glad she said after all something I wish it was a little less overwhelming and a little more: “Music should be free, and I’m giving you all the free passes.” But alas, capitalism is winning again. Ideally, she would have loved it when she pulled an Ed Sheeran (especially her BFF) and canceled resale tickets. In 2018, Sheeran canceled over 10,000 tickets for his stadium tourwhere IDs are required to ensure fans get tickets and not resell bots.

Sure, people can only do so much, but Taylor Swift can also do pretty much anything, I don’t know what.

“It’s really amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets,” Tay said in a nice, subtle tone, “but it really pisses me off that a lot of them feel like they went through multiple bear attacks to get them.” to get.” Personally, didn’t get a ticket felt less like surviving a bear attack and more like being screwed by a massive entertainment monopoly for profit. But Swift is the Grammy winner here, so I might be wrong.

“And to those who didn’t get tickets, all I can say is that I hope we give everyone more opportunities to get together and sing these songs.” I’ll remind you, blondie.

However, while you sing and dance and probably don’t know the lyrics to all the songs since you haven’t been a fan since 2007, I’m really going to cry in my room Experienced Swift’s tenth studio album: a real, tormented, tormented midnight. So, I don’t know who’s the real winner here?! (Definitely not me.)

“Thanks for wanting to be a part,” Swift finished the statement. “You have no idea how much that means.” K.
