The album cover for Lotus (pictured below) portrays Christina rising naked from a blossoming lotus, suggesting a beautiful beginning – more specifically, since she’s been around long enough to have greatest hits album, a new beginning. A rebirth. I’m a fan of the idea of new beginnings at any stage in life, especially when life demands fight or flight.
We’ve all been wondering lately if Taylor Swift was going to stick with her country roots or go more mainstream rock. This is really a loaded question, as everyone has really volatile opinions about this girl’s career, just because she happens to be in the limelight. And, from what I can tell from her two latest singles, “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “Red,” I think the answer is “yes.”
