Bluewater Productions, the company behind the Lady Gaga and Kristen Stewart comic books, will be recounting the “Fifteen” singer’s rise to stardom in Fame: Taylor Swift. Since we’re proud to be comic fans, we thought it would be fun to imagine just who will play the arch-nemesis (or nemeses) in the teen queen’s life story and how they’ll be portrayed. Check out five of the super-villains we’re hoping to see, based on from Taylor’s real-life “enemies”, after the jump.
Villain #1: Evil Brown Haired Popular High School Girl Dating Taylor’s Crush.She wears high heels and short skirts. She is also cheer captain and is dating a guy Taylor really likes. It doesn’t get any more villainous than that.
Taylor overcomes this foe by vowing to write a song about this experience in her twenties and portraying her arch nemesis as a bitchy cheerleader in the music video.
Villain #2: “Jim Jenkins” of the famous band The Jenkins Cousins.
They date, he tells her they’ll be together “forever and always”, but then he breaks up with Taylor—over the phone! Taylor defeats this enemy by writing “Forever And Always”. (Jim overcomes this by dating teen hottie “Dani Leviti”.)
Villain #3: Wayne Kest. Wayne (pronounced Wah-neye) isa successful rapper and producer who spoils Taylor’s moment in the spotlight by interrupting her when she wins “Music Video Of The Year” at the 2009 Music Video Awards. (For the music video where she portrays herself battling her childhood arch nemesis, of course). Taylor ends up maintaining her image as America’s Sweetest singer, providing her with a teflon-like armor against any and all criticism.
Villain #4: Legendary singer Sammy Knox of the 70’s band Slowstone Mick.
Sammy tries to upstage Taylor’s performance at the 2010 Grimmys by singing backup on a song that she wrote with Slowstone and singing it in-key of all things! This causes music critics to blast Swift for not being Grimmy-ready. Taylor overcomes this by winning the Grammy for Best New Artist and reminding people that she is the nice girl that Wayne Kest once interrupted on stage.
Villain(s) #5: Feminist Bloggers.
This mean group of female pop-culture bloggers, who don’t enjoy Taylor’s music, are annoyed at her constant references to fairy tale endings. Instead, they tout the likes of a pop phenomenon known as “Majesty Goo Goo”. Taylor overcomes this by inviting pop singer “Perry Katy” to join her on stage at an LA concert
to help Taylor prove to the world that she is young and “hip”.
Who’s the toughest villain to overcome? You tell us — and feel free to invent your own. Go on, be fearless about it.
