Taylor Swift announced her 10th studio album, Midnights, will be released on Oct. 21 at the 2022 VMAs on Sunday night (Aug. 28), and now, conservative commentator Nick Adams has turned the announcement into a political discussion.
On Monday (Aug. 29), the pro-Trump author took to Twitter to suggest that Kid Rock, another Trump supporter, release a new album on the same day as Midnights. Kid Rock should release a new album the same day as Taylor Swift
“People are craving real music with thought-provoking and emotional lyrics. Who better to give it to them than Kid Rock?” he wrote. “I GUARANTEE his album would outsell and outclass hers!”
According to MRC Data, Swift sold one out of every 50 albums sold in 2021, and she was the country’s second most-streamed artist after Drake. Swift sold 2.4 million albums last year, a 2.17% rise from the 1.89% she led in 2020.
That’s not all. After hearing that he was trending on Twitter, Adams doubled down on his thoughts with a video. “Kid Rock is an American badass alpha male and Taylor Swift is an American embarrassment and the world’s largest polluter.
I stand by every word!” he captioned the clip, before adding, “Raise your children to be like Kid Rock and Kyle Rittenhouse, NOT Taylor Swift and Harry Styles!”
Following the serious injury of a Black man, Jacob Blake, at the hands of a police officer, Rittenhouse, 19, shot three men, killing two, with an AR-15 style rifle during civil unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020.
He was found not guilty of all charges in November 2021, including first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree attempted intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment.
Adams’ social media rant has yet to be discussed by Kid Rock, Swift, or Styles.
