GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE: In reading Jon Caramanica’s thoughtful, evenhanded critique of Taylor Swift’s 1989 in The New York Times (see yesterday’s item), we were struck by the parallels between his description of the artist’s present status and I.B. Bad’s take in his latest column. “On this new stage,” Caramanica offers, “Ms. Swift is thriving. And crucially, she is more or less alone, not part of any pop movement of the day. She has set herself apart and, implicitly, above.” I.B., meanwhile, concludes that Swift has “so maximize[d] her potential that she’s now in a class of her own.” (10/24a)
