    Music industry darling Taylor Swift penned a critical and creative piece on the state of music and the music industry for The Wall Street Journal.

    It's here, with a particularly charming and thoughtful passage posted below.

    Our favorite passage? She compares the biz to a romance!

    "The way I see it, fans view music the way they view their relationships. Some music is just for fun, a passing fling (the ones they dance to at clubs and parties for a month while the song is a huge radio hit, that they will soon forget they ever danced to). Some songs and albums represent seasons of our lives, like relationships that we hold dear in our memories but had their time and place in the past. However, some artists will be like finding 'the one.' We will cherish every album they put out until they retire and we will play their music for our children and grandchildren."

    That was our fave part, since it's oh-so-T-Swizzle. That's her style and we likey.

    What did you think of T. Swizzle's take on the music biz?
