And in a meta moment, here is I Can Do It With A Broken Heart -- a song about performing on the Eras Tour, now being performed on the Eras Tour.

What's hilarious is that plenty of folks are going across the pond to see her there instead of here

The pop star is scheduled to kick off the 18-city Europe leg of her record-setting Eras Tour in Paris on Thursday, and planeloads of Swifties plan to follow Miss Americana across the pond in the coming weeks. The arena where Swift is appearing said Americans bought 20% of the tickets for her four sold-out shows. Stockholm, the tour’s next stop, expects about 10,000 concertgoers from the U.S.

“They said, ’Wait a minute, I can either spend $1,500 to go see my favorite artist in Miami, or I can take that $1,500 and buy a concert ticket, a round-trip plane ticket, and three nights in a hotel room,” Melanie Fish, an Expedia spokesperson and travel expert, said.

One of her underrated classics from 1989 that was not in the Era's tour playlist but somebody who hates her music would be instantly turned off and annoyed

Jeff loves the word "underrated", but here's where Rolling Stone ranks it among her 274 songs :

New Romantics a more innocent time in 2014 though it was not a great year but looks like a good one now and appreciate it more and my parents were doing a lot better back then.

Looks like Taylor had a Chiefs-themed The Man costume as well.

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

Three more digital album variants are now available (one hour left!)
Each variant comes with a different “first draft phone memo” for a song. Are they demos? Are they just Taylor talking about the songs? Who knows! But the only way to get all three bonus tracks is to order all three copies of the digital album. Act now before time is up!

Enjoy!

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Billie Eilish is releasing her album today.

Sure, if you buy all 739 variants of the new album you get a Taylor Swift Real Doll.

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

I will admit, as someone who (IIRC) at one time defended her releasing a bunch of different stuff, I have reached my limit and now find it all unseemly. I am constantly getting emails about limited time opportunities to buy special this or special that, and it's kinda gross. Like, you are a billionaire, just offer an album and maybe a special release or two with extras, but not a special release with different extras, only available for 24 hours, every day that ends with y.

Reminds me of the comic book industry.

Is there a list of all of the different Taylor Swift releases everyone is talking about? I'm just sort of curious about the extent of these different releases of the same album...

It's no coincidence she released these variants today:

From Wikipedia (and not including the different digital downloads)

"In total, The Tortured Poets Department was available in 21 versions for purchase: the 16-track standard digital download album, the 31-track Anthology digital download album, nine CD variants, six vinyl variants, and four cassette variants, with deluxe CDs and cassettes being available exclusively via Swift's official website."
