On the one-year anniversary of 1989’s launch, Taylor Swift took her victory lap for the album’s enormous success with an enormous live performance at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Enviornment. And in probably the most controversial Miami–associated popular culture occasion since “The Choice,” Swift unveiled her Miami squad. Who made the lower? Pitbull (DALE!), Dwyane Wade, and Ricky Martin. That’s fairly good, if an unusually testosterone-heavy lineup for a Swift squad annex. However Miami is an enormous metropolis, and Taylor’s squad there must broaden to the scale of her “Unhealthy Blood” video solid. Having misplaced a few of her Nashville base throughout her controversial transfer from nation into pop, Taylor must reclaim the South greater than ever. Listed below are ideas for a way Taylor can fill out the clean areas in her Miami squad.
How might Taylor neglect to ask probably the most highly effective diva in Miami musical historical past to hitch her onstage? Is it as a result of Taylor can’t do the conga? It’s in all probability that. Estefan has taken on a decrease public profile in recent times, however she would in all probability have come out to be inducted into the squad. They’ve a few issues in widespread. Swift and Estefan share a love of bad boys, and so they have a ton of Grammys. If she will be able to’t get Gloria, Taylor ought to on the very least strive for the remainder of the Miami Sound Machine.
2 Stay Crew
Taylor has been dipping her toe into the rapper pool, collaborating with Kendrick Lamar and bringing rappers like Nelly and now Pitbull onstage. It’s time she obtained into the Jacuzzi with Uncle Luke. For those who take heed to the subtext of a few of Taylor’s sultrier songs, you’ll notice she’s not to this point distanced from “Me So Sexy.” And once you boil it down, aren’t songs like “Pop That Pussy” and “Throw the ‘D’” about lady energy? It’s time Taylor lets herself be as nasty as she actually desires and announce that her subsequent album might be all Miami bass. Taylor can welcome them to the stage, and in return they will say, “WELCOME 2 THE FUCK SHOP, TAYLOR!”
William H. Macy
I guess you had no thought William H. Macy was from Miami! I say that as a result of I had no thought William H. Macy was from Miami. That’s as a result of he’s the WORLD’S GREATEST ACTOR! You in all probability thought this lovable everyman was born within the coronary heart of the Midwest due to Fargo, however no, you can’t spell “William H. Macy” with out “Miami.” Including Macy to your squad has by no means been a nasty thought. Consider all of the squads he has helped along with his presence: He’s an unique member of David Mamet’s squad and has achieved squad duties for Mamet in Oleanna, State and Most important, and Wag the Canine. He’s proudly within the Mr. Holland’s Opusquad and Paul Thomas Anderson’s final Altmanesque megasquads in Boogie Nights and Magnolia. Even the Jurassic Park III squad was enlivened by his presence. And allow us to not overlook his contributions to TV squads on Sports activities Evening and Shameless. For those who don’t have William H. Macy in your squad, is it even a squad value having?
What do Rick Ross and Taylor Swift have in widespread? They each understand how a lot it hurts to get referred to as a faux bitch. No matter you’re feeling about Taylor, you can’t deny how a lot she has bossed up this yr as the results of hustling day-after-day.
As Taylor has shifted from nation to pop, she has misplaced one factor: candy, candy guitar shreds. Yngwie Malmsteen, the Swedish guitarist who now lives in Miami, can be an important asset who might assist Taylor get well her shreddingness quotient. Positive, all of us like “Type” now, however think about how way more sleazily ’80s it might get if it had an extended, sweaty, technically excellent guitar solo by Yngwie Malmsteen.
How dare you come to Florida and never invite Da Baddest Bitch onstage? How dare you! The Diamond Princess would make a very good addition to Taylor’s squad particularly now that she’s a free agent, not contractually obligated to be within the Slip-N-Slide squad with Trick Daddy. Trina might educate Taylor a factor or 12 about breakup songs — she’s written each “fuck you” and “love you” songs about ex Lil Wayne, priceless revenges, and pillow discuss (“to please me you gotta sleep in it”). Truly, fuck Trina becoming a member of Taylor’s squad. Taylor wants to hitch Trina’s.
