The Heart-Shaped Goddess
My eyes are full of dust as I wake up in No Mans Land on an old, threadbare blanket with Brick by my side. Brick, my best friend, my confidant, was exiled from our tribe five years ago for using tribe electricity to power a black box he discovered on a trip to the tech dumps. This was a forbidden action, but the sentencing was a stretch if you ask me.

So, why, if this is the case, are so many men so afraid of one of the most natural occurrences when it comes to the female body?
The Latest TSwizzle Controversy, Fan Power, Unsigned Musicians
Whether you like the woman or not, Taylor Swift has certainly sparked some controversy in her time as a seemingly evolving and rebirthing musician. She seems to have taken several leaves out of the books of women like Madonna and my personal messiah Cher in that reinvention seems to be her favourite pastime. Is this all down to 360 pressure or is Taylor really the kind of woman who wants to inspire people to change themselves whenever the rest of the world gets bored? Who knows, this article isn't about her personal choices anyway.
