'Mean,' Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift lashes out at bullies in the latest single from “Speak Now,” aptly titled “Mean.” “When you do what I do, which is you put yourself out there for a lot of people to say whatever they want...there's a million different opinions," Swift told E! News. “I get that, no matter what, you're going to be criticized for something. But I also get that there are different kinds of ways to criticize someone. There's constructive criticism, there's professional criticism—and then there's just being mean.”
Sample lyric: “Someday I'll be living in a big old city / And all you're ever gonna be is mean / Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me / And all you're ever gonna be is mean” —Jeff Royer
