Taylor Swift Offers Free Concert

Tonight’s “what the hell”, is a mixture of both of these moments. As most by now know Taylor Swift is hosting a virtual contest where the school that received the most votes, will win a concert for their school. Well while the gesture is Nobel and I think it’s awesome she would do something like that, there will always be some joker out to ruin things for everyone.

In a previous instance singer Pitbull did a contest where the Walmart that got the most likes via Facebook would get a concert. Well a group of ballet stuffers decided it would be funny to pick a Walmart in the middle of nowhere Alaska. Then they found a way to rig it to where that Walmart won the concert. Granted Pit bull was a good sport and even paid out of his own pocket to fly the jokester all the way to Alaska, just so that they could see him make good on his end of the deal.

Well now someone has a similar idea with Taylor Swift where they are stuffing the votes for a school for the deaf and hard of hearing in Massachusetts. What I find is really crappy, is that in stuffing the entries these people are actually ruining it for people who might actually want taylor with guitarto see Taylor Swift perform at there school.  Seriously people she is doing a free concert for people who actually WANT to see her perform and just because you might not, does not mean you should ruin it for others. The jokesters gimic this time around is “not even the deaf want to hear your music.”

The funny thing is that people actually do want to hear Taylor Swift perform, she would not be a chart topping artist if they did not. Currently the school for the deaf and hard of hearing is teetering between first and second, and luckily for Taylor Swift she included an opt out clause for herself in this competition so that at least if the scammers get their way and rig the voting the actual winner will still get the concert that they are fighting for.

Here is my two cents worth though, if you do not like an artist that is doing something like Pitbull did or Taylor is doing, then do not participate. That is pretty simple, let the people that are actually interested enjoy an opportunity that may not come again, because you think you are being funny, but you are the only ones laughing.
