11 things more important than Taylor Swift’s ‘Famous’ drama

If you care at all about the petty micro-dramas of celebrity life—don’t give me that look, I goddamn know you do—you’ve already heard that Kim Kardashian had the receipts to prove that Taylor Swift was warned about and approved the personally provocative lyrics to Kanye West‘s “Famous.”

But call me jaded; I just didn’t find anything about this beef all that juicy. I couldn’t escape the feeling that it was a little bit forced, a little desperate. And, as many on Twitter were quick to point out, there are far more important things to worry about at the moment. Here are just a few:

1) Things

It’s true. Did you hear about the things? Very important.

2) Issues

Arguably as important as the things are the issues. 

3) Stuff 

There’s no denying the importance of stuff.

4) Shit

Shit is among the most important things (or “stuff”) I can think of.

5) Shit Happening

Also important: shit happening.

6) Finding a Pikachu

It’s frankly offensive that anyone would consider anything more important.

7) Matters

Not to be confused with “issues,” we cannot forget the importance of “matters.”

8) Stories

SMH at anyone who thinks stories aren’t important.

9) News

I actually think news and Taylor are equally important, but OK.

10) Actual News

Meanwhile, actual news is definitely more important.

11) Something

Something may be the most important of all.
