    If I learned anything from Trump’s inauguration and the subsequent Women’s March, it’s that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston belong together. While hordes of women descended on Washington in pink knit hats and righteous indignation, sparking emotions from hope to confusion to mild annoyance, celebrities attempted to do their part. Their efforts ranged from exemplary—what did we do to deserve you, America Ferrera? –to polarizing, to Lena Dunham. Rihanna put on a pink tutu and dabbed outside of Trump Tower. Ashley Judd put on an uncomfortable accent and did her best spoken word routine. Scarlett Johansson advocated for Planned Parenthood...

    Taylor Swift may have tweeted her support for those around the world who joined in the Women's March over the weekend, but many people are furious that the self-proclaimed feminist wasn't a part of the protest. The 27-year-old singer took to Twitter on Saturday to say that she has 'so much love, price and respect for those who marched'. However, while plenty of A-list stars joined the marches across the country, she wasn't one of them. Although some fans praised Taylor for her tweet, there were plenty of Twitter users who accused the pop star of only speaking out about...
