Can Anyone Explain the Appeal of Taylor Swift?

So I caught Taylor Swift‘s performance on SNL this past weekend…

CAN ANYONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME THE APPEAL OF TAYLOR SWIFT?

I really know nothing about her other than she used to date a Jonas brother and she’s been on the cover of every teen magazine for the last 3 months. Girlfriend has a weak-sounding voice. Like Lisa Loeb, but nowhere near as charming…Neither song she sang on SNL had any sort of demand for vocal ability, and neither had any great hooks or crescendos.

See for yourself:
“Love Story”:

“Forever and Always”:
