Taylor Swift must be a big fan of walls because she’s building one around her Beverly Hills mansion.
Taylor obtained permits to block visibility to her Beverly Hills mansion … including putting up a 6.5 ft tall cinder block wall by her front porch and a 7 ft high retaining wall by her tennis court. She also upgraded and remodeled her front gate — emphasis on “up.”
Swift, who some have speculated is a secret Donald Trump supporter, has a history with walls. In fact, she has at least five songs that reference walls.
‘Cause these things will change
Can you feel it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down
This revolution, the time will come
For us to finally win
And we’ll sing hallelujah, we’ll sing hallelujah
Oh, a simple complication,
Miscommunications lead to fall-out.
So many things that I wish you knew,
So many walls up I can’t break through.
3) Long Live:
Long live the walls we crashed through
I had the time of my life, with you
Long, long live the walls we crashed through
How the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
And I was screaming long live all the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders
4) Cold As You:
You put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray
And I stood there loving you and wished them all away
And you come away with a great little story
Of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you
5) So It Goes:
See you in the dark
All eyes on you, my magician
All eyes on us
You make everyone disappear, and
Cut me into pieces
Gold cage, hostage to my feelings
Back against the wall
Trippin’, trip-trippin’ when you’re gone
Sure does seem like Swift knows a lot about putting up and taking down walls. Of course, as somebody pointed out to me, the largest wall is probably around her heart.
She also has yet to deny I inspired her songs “Gorgeous” and “Delicate.” Luckily, there’s no singing about walls in those songs.
