Oh, Twitter. How I love thee. What did we do before you? How did we express our loves, our desires, our need for coffee, and our hatred for Monday mornings?
In Twitter news, it was reported last night that Hailie Mathers – wait; who? Oh; sorry – that’s Hailie “Mini M&M” Mathers, fruit of the loins of rapper Eminem. Hailie supposedly took to Twitter to slam Taylor Swift for dating One Direction band member Harry Styles.
This was going to start off as a “Indignant Judgement About Internet Bullying But While I’m Shaking My Fists At The Sky I’m Totally Agreeing With Her” kinda post, but it made a sharp left turn in the research stages at the words “Eminem’s reps deny Twitter account belongs to daughter.”
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t Hailie, but I’m like 200 words into this and so it’s going forward.
Someone calling herself ”Hailie Mathers” said this:
Eminiem’s reps say the account is not his daughter’s, and the account has since been taken down. In fairness to the Tweeter, whoever they be (my money’s on one of the other One Direction members) they did issue a apology, Twitter style:
I will never defend bullying, especially on Twitter, but come on, Taylor! Puh-leeze stop. Didn’t I already talk to you about this? (Insert crazy way-back lines here) Remember how I said my own 13 year old daughter loves One Direction, and I kinda warned her about how her career might suffer if she dated Harry.
Look, I know Harry Styles is Erhmehgerdsopretty. I’ll give Taylor that. But I’ve got a daughter and she’s got Twitter, and when I had a look in her Twitter stream, it was…well, see for yourself:
These girls are ALL CAPS PISSED OFF at Taylor. I think she’d be advised not to alienate a huge portion of her fan base. They also seem to be quite a religious bunch, what with the praising of God and angels and such. If Taylor truly believes that she and Harry are a love match, then she should totally go for it. You shouldn’t ever let people dictate who you love, and I fully support that.
But Taylor has a bit of a reputation for using guys for something worse than using them for sex, because that would be okay, right fellas? No; she uses them for material, which is akin to writing their names and numbers on the bathroom wall if the bathroom wall was the whole world and everyone could read.
But Taylor? DON’T SHIT WHERE YOU EAT.
And if the account really does belong to the “real” Hailie Mathers, how do you think her father – Eminem - is handling her gaffe? Seeing as it’s clear Hailie listens to One Direction AND Taylor Swift, I’m thinking ”not well.”
