Is Taylor Swift Really a Bad Role Model? Debunking the Controversial Op-Ed

The op-ed writer who criticized Taylor Swift for being “not a good role model” because she is 34, unmarried, and childless has faced significant backlash.

John Mac Ghlionn was slammed for his article accusing Swift—whose Eras Tour is the highest-grossing concert tour of all time—of being a bad influence on young girls. The article has attracted the attention of not only Swifties but also society.

Taylor Swift is a famous American singer and songwriter. She started her music career in 2006 when she released her self-titled debut album, “Taylor Swift.” She has massive success in the music industry and a huge fanbase. She has also won many awards, including multiple Grammys.

In the Newsweek article, Ghiloni argued that Taylor Swift is not a good role model for young girls because she is unmarried and does not have children. Although he appreciated her music life, the writer criticized her past relationships, saying she has dated many boyfriends in recent years.

He asked, ‘Would any loving parent reading this want their daughter to date 12 different men in just a few years? ‘This is not an attack on Swift; it’s a valid question worth asking. There are many criticisms about these ideas.

‘No man has ever been chastised in the media for being a “bad role model for boys” because he was “34, unmarried and childless,”‘ One person said.

Another one said, ‘Young girls do not need to aspire to marry and have children. I personally have no interest in Taylor Swift, but there are worse role models than someone who evidently works hard, is financially independent, and also makes huge donations to food banks.’

Also, some people have said that no celebrity should be an idol for younger generations. Anyway, Taylor has become an icon in the music industry now.

Newsweek’s H. Alan Scott dished his hot take on the controversial Newsweek opinion article about #taylorswift that stirred in the internet into a frenzy.
