… I Love You

Dear Taylor Swift,


I would give my left kidney to see Taylor Swift in concert. She is a goddess amongst men in this pathetic music industry. But because of Ticketmaster, I and many others are victims of an exile of Swifties. 


After the announcement of the Eras tour, Swifties were ecstatic. TicketMaster’s false promises ripped out our hearts, stomped on and crushed my high school dreams. I rewind thе tape but all it does is pause on thе very moment all was lost. My life is over. What life is there to live without Taylor?


Not only did their website crash but, Ticketmaster canceled general sale ticketing after overselling for pre-sale. 


Ticketmaster canceled its plans for a public ticket sale on Friday when it would typically sell any tickets remaining after presales,” David McCabe and Ben Sisario of the New York Times said.


I’ve been having a hard time adjusting. With no chance to secure tickets for a fair price, I spiraled and entered my Reputation era.  Keep in mind there’s nothing I do better than revenge. Ticketmaster let me and other faithful Swifties down. The rage coursing through my body was more than I’ve felt towards any of Taylor Swift’s exes— even Jake Gyllenhaal. I think I’m gonna call them out.


But balance was restored to humanity when it was announced an investigation and lawsuit had been filed against the company.


“The Justice Department has opened an antitrust investigation into the owner of Ticketmaster, whose sale of Taylor Swift concert tickets descended into chaos this week,” said the New York Times “The investigation is focused on whether Live Nation Entertainment has abused its power over the multibillion-dollar live music industry.”


Ticket masters’ heinous acts would finally be buried to rest with the lawsuit filed. But bandaids don’t fix bullet holes. Freshman Emma Rood shares her thoughts on Ticketmaster and the Eras tour. 


“No one had faith in Ticketmaster in the first place but it made me very sad…the fact that I missed my opportunity, It literally made me wanna gouge my eyes out,” Rood said.


Although this may be upsetting, we will prevail. Together we will become stronger through the power of Taylor with her music to guide us. One day we will be remembered.


Taylor if you’re reading this, please let me be graced by your presence and blessed with the gift of seeing you live. Look into your heart and think to be so kind and generous to give me tickets for the Eras tour. I’m begging you.
