Carefully chosen words from Taylor Swift.
Madonna, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Cher, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande and many more of music's most influential women participated in the Women's Marches held throughout the United States this weekend. The organized effort serves as a blatant signal of opposition now that Donald Trump is President, and it's unifying the country in ways Trump hadn't foreseen.
Someone noticeably absent throughout most of the saga leading up to the election and the dizzying days ahead of the inauguration is Taylor Swift. Her gargantuan online presence could influence millions of people, but she curiously decided to keep quiet – many believed it was because she sided with Trump over Clinton, but she never confirmed that.
Madonna Speaks At Women’s March: “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged.”
However, the 1989 singer did chime in this weekend as the marches raged on: "So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched. I'm proud to be a woman today, and every day. #WomensMarch"
So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched. I'm proud to be a woman today, and every day. #WomensMarch

Dissecting her words, they're a bit cryptic. It's like someone twisted her arm to mention something about the marches without actually revealing her true colors. I guess we'll take what we can get, because it's going to be a long four years.
