Maybe he should concentrate on putting out fires

Trudeau might have an easier time appealing to the biggest artists from the PRC. I'm no Swifty, but Taylor obviously has a problem with overreaching governments who freeze bank accounts of tax-paying citizens and move to unequivocally ban media organizations that don't toe the official government line.

This is what we have come to expect from a Prime Minister who allows a book called 'My Canadian Boyfriend' to be published with him making a heart symbol on the cover, just about sums it up really.....

Oh and the 'Canadians are nice' cliche is totally untrue, they've generally become as selfish and disrespectful of others as the rest of the World......

Really???..

There are more important things for a prime minister to do for a country..

Utterly pathetic..

Trudeau beckons Taylor Swift to Canada

What does he want to do with her?

What does he want to do with her?

What any narcissistic politician would want: a selfie with her in the hope it would give him some sort of cred with the cool kids.

As if I couldn't hate Trudeau anymore...

He was busy buying votes on the same day, sending grocery money to seniors, most of who are wealthy and people who were "low income" students 2 years ago but now make $100,000 a year.

Truedough knows where his priorities are. Unfortunately for Canada, they align with a teenage girl.

Just to nitpic: Taylor Swift is 33 years old.

Her fanbase is teenage girls.

So is his mate!

Her fanbase is teenage girls.

I can't claim to be knowledgeable on the subject, but a quick Google search suggests that while that might have been true at the start of her career, her current fanbase seems to be mostly adults, and about evenly split between male and female:

, her current fanbase seems to be mostly adults, and about evenly split between male and female:

Careful in these things.

An unsecured website that mixes up "listeners" and "fans"

82% of her "Fans" are between 13 and 24, with 62% 18~24 and the rest between 13 and 18.

There is a great effort to try and say her fans basevis older by asking " do you listen to Taylor Swift?" And inevitably a large number of adults over 24 say yes! But ask if the would pay money to go to her concert or buy her music and the number of over 24 drops to less than 20%.

Now, Trudeau is a pathetic actor!

And that is what he is, his father was an educated man, a leader a man that did and said what he himself thought.

JT is an actor little education, road into power on his father's reputation and is a great actor saying what his is told to.

And this makes Canada look more pathetic than I ever thought was possible.

One site says

53% of U.S Adults are Taylor Swift Fans 45% are millennials (Age 27-42) 23% are baby boomers 21% are Gen Xers 11% are members of Gen Z (Age 26 and under).

According to Forbes

Some 45% of avid fans are millennials, people between the ages of 27 and 42, while 23% are baby boomers, 21% are Gen Xers and just 11% are members of Gen Z—those 26 and under. A slim majority, 55%, of avid Swift fans are Democrats, compared to 23% who are politically independent and 23% who are Republicans.

Taylor Swift will be playing at the Liverpool FC ground, next year. It will be a sell-out.

Net worth $740 million. Beyonce is at $540 million.

I don't listen much myself.

Proper questions not leading ones

From the source you quoted:

"Most of Swift’s fans (41%) are in the 18- to 24-year-old Gen Z group. 78% are in the larger 18–34 age group." 

The numbers you quoted earlier are specifically her fans on TikTok - whose user base skews younger - and not her overall fanbase (which is what the numbers I'm quoting are).

Beyond that, I'm not sure how I got myself into this debate and I'll be moving on.....

As a Canuck, I don't give a rat's a** what Trudeau says. He's a political con artist of the worst kind.

Canada under Trudeau has no respect on the world stage whatsoever. Glad I left and don't have to breath smoke every day, I won't be returning as long as this clown is still in the office..

Oh and keep getting shunned by the American celebrities Trudeau boy

Delusional, Canada is more respected under Trudeau, particularly with the contrast of America right now, than it has ever been. Canada is being known as progressive and business friendly, and most importantly, stable. That’s why Canadian business is booming as an alternative to America.

You people talk is if you have any idea what is happening in Canada. We all know you’re just Trudeau haters. I actually don’t like him either, but there’s no denying the Liberal government is doing excellent for Canada. Well, there is denying, but only by the delusional.

Hey, maybe Prime Minister Fumio Kishida should get in on the act too and invite Taylor to Japan. I honestly cannot see what all the fuss around her is for, I am a 23yr old female, I have never heard one of her songs....unless she pinched a bit out of Beethoven's 6th......And believe me that has been done before by others. The only modern music I like is by Japanese, female, rock/metal bands, like Lovebites and Bandmaid and a few more. I cannot explain why I like them, having been raised listening only to classical music, I found them by accident on YT and just watching them since, they make me feel so happy.
