If Taylor Swift survived everyone’s first listen of “Shake it Off,” she can survive anything.

As such, the fact that this week’s messiness regarding ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris has turned into #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty being a thing shouldn’t be taken seriously. It should definitely be given attention — this is the internet and nothing beats a ridiculous hashtag — but it just shouldn’t be taken seriously.

Taylor Swift is overrated, but she’s important. Even if her songs are just her trying to doing something cool by a cooler artist she heard six months earlier, the type of music that Taylor Swift does helps inform what young people’s ears find appealing. Is she a particularly good singer? No. Is she a great songwriter? Probably not, Rolling Stone dummies. Yet as long as she is one of the primary outlets for people like Max Martin’s writing, she’ll be extremely important to pop music.

This week, folks are in a huff because one of Swift’s representatives told People that Swift wrote Harris’ hit song “This is What You Came For” under a pseudonym. Harris was upset that this information, which Swift wanted to keep secret while they were dating, was leaked after they broke up, seemingly in an effort to make him look bad.

I don’t care what happened in between that and this hashtag becoming a thing. Unless she admitted to paying the kid to go into Harambe’s enclosure in what would prove to be a successful hit attempt, Taylor Swift is not over. In case you want to know what did happen in between the People story and the birth of the hashtag, here’s pretty much it.

Nobody can actually think Taylor Swift being petty is enough to end her. This is a minuscule amount of adversity for someone who has both been famous this long and has had a number of high-profile relationships. She pretty much has to live in a bubble and possibly work out strange deals with people to maintain friendships. Embrace the hashtag all you want, but it’s nonsense. 

The best evidence that the hashtag is garbage is that there aren’t even any funny tweets with it. Every trending hashtag is good for at least 20 or 30 classics, and after reading them for five minutes these are the only two that at least induce a grin: 

Swift hasn’t released an album since October of 2014, but it’s pretty much a guarantee that the follow-up to 1989 will be good-to-really-good and get nominated for more Grammys than it deserves. She’ll do another world tour and all of the shows will sell out in hours.

If there is honestly a party celebrating 26-year-old Taylor Swift being over in July of 2016,  don’t go. You never want to be the only smart person at a party.
