Taylor Swift became something of a teen girl hero after weathering Kanye West’s “Imma Let You Finish, But... ” storm, championing over vapidity as the nerdy girl who gets the guy in the “You Belong With Me” video, and spreading her girl power all over the teen-skewing music industry like pixie dust. A dude breaks her heart? He becomes persona-non-grata to her millions of fans come time for her next album. Who needs him? In doing so, Swift has built a mini-empire on concert tickets, number-one-selling albums, merchandise, and anything she can put a picture of her face on.

There was a time in which Swift was the ultimate poster child for crushing all that boy drama into tiny, ground-up pieces and re-purposing it as fuel for her career and her seemingly endless success. Swift, while still the girliest of girls, was upheld as someone who was all about turning her experiences into industry. It was an admirable feat. It was mature. It was independent.

Now, as Swift's fiercest, angriest album yet sells big in stores all over the country, Harper’s Bazaar releases her most docile interview to date. Where Swift was previously concerned with making a name for herself and being a self-professed over-achiever, she now talks about letting her boyfriend “take the wheel,” touts a huge wardrobe dilemma (she can never wear the same dress twice, so she has to buy so, so many pretty dresses, you guys!), and gives us an idea of the only topic upstanding young ladies should talk about with their friends: boys!

Yes, girls love dresses. Yes, all girls have boy problems and need to turn to their friends to air them. Yes, relationships should have give and take. But that’s not what Swift is saying here, and the fact of the matter is that the Fearless singer occupies a very sacred and important celebrity space: that of a powerful young girl who other young girls emulate and idolize. In this interview, she takes a mere second to say that’s she’s in control of her own financial destiny and descends immediately into a series of silly schoolgirl chats. Swift is given the chance to speak her mind and instead spends most of her time gushing over boys and pretty things — it puts a bit of a halt on her status as a role model. Although we know Swift is a dynamic young woman (or at least we hope that part of her still exists deep down), her interview reads more like a 1950s etiquette manual than that of a symbol of girl power.

It’s a little dramatic, we know, but just take a look for yourself. Here’s a teen etiquette video from 1947 followed by a few choice quotes from Swift’s interview. They go together like sweetheart necklines and subservient housewives. Really.
