i actually really hate the whole boost contest for tickets on taylor’s website. the verified fan part is cool – great, stop the scalpers! but the whole “the more merchandise you buy, the further up you get in line” is just…. not cool. there are so many dedicated fans who save up just to be able to buy a ticket; not everyone can afford hundreds of dollars worth of merch just to have the CHANCE to buy a ticket. it all just feels like a cheap way to make more money and i don’t like it at all.
