Taylor Swift might be everybody’s sweetheart and arguably the nicest person on the planet but that doesn’t mean she’s a pushover. She’s a total badass, powerhouse of a woman and proves time and time again she’s not to be trifled with.
And Swifty doesn’t need a girl army to back her. She’s completely capable of the most cordial take-downs all by herself.
This is why you should never, ever, ever underestimate Taylor Swift
You sue her, she'll sue you right backA former radio host sued Swift claiming he was fired by his job based on false allegations that he groped the star, but she didn't slink away. Tay is now countersuing the dude for his inappropriate actions and will donate any money she wins from the suit to charities dedicated to protecting women.Getty Images
She changed the entire music industry in one day, NBDSwift took to Tumblr to call out Apple's refusal to pay artists their royalties during the streaming service's three-month free trial membership. Swift's message was heard, loud and clear, and Apple announced less than 24 hours later that the company would heed the singer's request.Getty Images
She rebelled against Spotify tooYou won't see Taylor on Spotify. Swift explained that she believes "the value of an album is ... based on the amount of heart and soul an artist has bled into a body of work" and since music can be a form of important, rare, valuable art, a price should be paid for it. Her music is available through TIDAL, her pal Jay Z's service.Getty Images
She got Kanye to do a 180It may have taken a few years after the, "Ima let you finish" incident but now they're friends and, hopefully, future collaborators.Getty Images
She evicted that freeloader, Ian McKellenSir Ian McKellen was just living his life in NYC, staying in Peter Jackson's apartment when Swifty bought it and promptly kicked him out. Had she known who was living there, would she have been so hasty with her eviction? Maybe.Getty Images
Swift got her management team to purchase porn domains with her nameTay is famously protective of her image and work and there's no harm in being proactive about it. It was surprising to absolutely no one that Swift and her team bought up .porn and .swift domains to keep the trolls out.Getty Images
She got the seal of approval from fellow badass, Jennifer LawrenceJ-Law and T-Swift, two hyphenates with whom no one should mess around. Lawrence texted Swift after reading the letter she wrote to Apple saying, "You's a badass bitch." And perhaps it was Taylor's words that inspired Jen to take a stand in her own industry.Getty Images
Taylor is a copyright queenNot only does she copywrite entire lyrics but she's trademarked key phrases in her songs. Want to "party like it's 1989?" Lay down "this sick beat" "cause we never go out of style?" "Nice to meet you. Where You Been?" We "could show you incredible things." But then we'd have to send a cheque to Tay.Getty Images
