A 7-year-old has DEFENDED Taylor Swift from being called a bad role model, after a writer recently claimed that Swift isn’t because she has no children or spouse at 34. – She says “You don’t have to be married and have kids to be a good role model… you have to be kind, sweet, generous and smart. And you have to give girls a feeling like they have power – girl power – and that we can make our own decisions.”

My name is Amaya Grace Montgomery. I am 7 years old and going into the second grade. And I am a Swiftie.

 

A 7-year-old has DEFENDED Taylor Swift from being called a bad role model, after a writer recently claimed that Swift isn’t because she has no children or spouse at 34. – She says “You don’t have to be married and have kids to be a good role model… you have to be kind, sweet, generous and smart. And you have to give girls a feeling like they have power – girl power – and that we can make our own decisions.”

That means I am a big Taylor Swift fan. I first heard Taylor Swift when I was just 1 year old. Back then my favorite song was “Shake It Off.” Now it’s “Cruel Summer” on her album “Lover.”

But I’m not just a fan—because Taylor Swift isn’t just a good musician. Taylor Swift is a role model for girls like me. That’s why I’m writing this: My mom read me something that said that Taylor is not a good role model. That really upset me. So, I wanted to talk for little girls and explain why we don’t agree.

You don’t have to be married and have kids to be a good role model. To be a good role model, you have to be kind, sweet, generous and smart. And you have to give girls a feeling like they have power—girl power—and that we can make our own decisions. A good role model makes you feel like you’re powerful, and that you have to use your power to be kind and generous.

That’s what Taylor Swift does: Taylor Swift is girl power. And she is kind. And because she is both, she makes us feel like we can be both. And that’s a very good thing!

That is what I think makes Taylor Swift so special: She is a nice person and she is a good singer. She’s a good musician who writes good songs people love to sing over and over, and she helps people by donating money. She gives money to food pantries in all the cities she visits. She gives huge bonuses to the people who work for her. She donates so much money to the needy. I admire that. That is a role model.

I don’t care about who Taylor dates. I care about the music. I care about the generosity.

I don’t want to be exactly like Taylor Swift, because I am afraid of being in front of a lot of people. But she makes me feel brave. She makes me feel happy and excited when I sing her songs.

She writes all her songs and plays three instruments. One of her instruments is the guitar. I wanted to play the guitar because of her, and my mom bought me one.

Do I think Taylor can change the world? Maybe. Her music brings people together. She gives out friendship bracelets because she wants everyone to be friends. That is something that a role model does.

This is why Taylor is so popular with young girls but also older girls and women. She makes us feel like we can also be talented and kind. Every time you sing her one of her songs, you feel like you are connecting with a generous, kind, smart, talented person who uses her gifts for good.

That’s the definition of a role model.

I am proud to be a Swiftie. Now you know why.

Amaya lives in Spring, Texas with her family. She wants to be a scientist when she grows up. Her mother Emeri Montgomery is director of audience at Newsweek.

Swift lashed out at Minaj’s claim of the industry ‘rewarding’ white women at the ‘expense’ of black artists when she tweeted, “Maybe one of the men took your slot.” This exchange sparked a broader conversation about racial dynamics in the music industry and Swift’s own privilege. In the aftermath, critics began pointing out a narrative of ‘white victimhood’ in Swift’s career. Later on, the Lover hitmaker accepted that this incident was eye-opening for her. “A lot about how my privilege allowed me to not have to learn about white privilege,” Swift explained. “I didn’t know about it as a kid, and that is privilege itself, you know? And that’s something that I’m still trying to educate myself on every day.” This insight made Swift consider her prior deeds and public image. In addition, being so active on social media, she realized, had made it seem like everyone deserved a window into every part of her life. “I created an expectation that everything in my life that happened, people would see,” she admitted. Constantly sharing every detail of her life online backfired. It turned her into a target for tabloids and fans who dissected everything she did, and she ultimately realized her image was not in her control. No matter the choice she would make, public opinion on it would vary; damned if she did, damned if she didn’t. It was in this regard that Swift told The Guardian, “I’m kinda used to being gaslit by now. And I think it happens to women so often that, as we get older and see how the world works, we’re able to see through what is gaslighting.” Besides, the summer of 2016 was brutal also because of a public fight she had with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian about a lyric in his song Famous. Kardashian uploaded edited clips online, and the backlash against Swift exploded on social media, turning the tide of opinion against her. It left her feeling like everyone was against her and completely misconstrued the situation. When people are in a hate frenzy and they find something to mutually hate together, it bonds them. And anything you say is in an echo chamber of mockery,” Swift explained, describing why she chose not to defend herself publicly at the time, as per The Guardian. The constant criticism and scrutiny took a toll on Swift. She found herself in a no-win situation. “Oh my God, they were mad at me for smiling a lot and quote-unquote acting fake. And then they were mad at me that I was upset and bitter and kicking back,” she recalled. Needless to say, 2016 was a rough year for Swift. Between the public feuds and the constant pressure, she just needed some space. She stepped back from social media and all the attention, realizing things weren’t quite balanced between her life and her music. This break also opened her eyes to issues of privilege and social justice. “How can I see where people are coming from, and understand the pain that comes with the history of our world?” she asked herself.
