Just When You Thought You Had Enough Taylor Swift, the Singer Will Appear in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

There was once a time where media supersaturation did not demand that a star be a jack of all trades. But in the age of social media stardom, a celebrity is supposed to dominate every market that they can possibly tap–whether they are meant to or not. This act goes against the laws of nature, but as such, we have Taylor Swift set to make her movie debut as singer turn mutant, The Dazzler, in X-Men: Apocalypse. 

Sophie Turner, who plays Jean Grey in the movie, fueled rumors by tweeting a still from the movie. In the still, we find Turner as Jean Grey alongside Tye Sheridan’s Cyclops in what looks to be a record store. Sheridan is seen holding up one of The Dazzler’s albums.

While there has been no official word from the movie, IMDb or the 1989 singer, it is not unlike Swifty to pull some kind of crazy PR stunt like this. Are we outraged or just accepting this as the standard in our now-perpetual media climate? I, for one, do wish I could open my eyes without something–anything–reminiscent of Taylor Swift.

X-Men: Apocalypse will take theaters May 18, again whether we like it or not.

Swifts rep said yesterday she is NOT appearing in the movie. But than if you bothered to investigate you could not have written this typical Blemish hate piece about Swift.

Swift sucks. Seriously. She needs to go away for a year and disappear. We all have Swiftlash. Sick of her voice and her face.

Smart celebs make themselves scarce from time to time. Only the massive egos don’t do it. TS is a massive ego who lacks some self awareness.
