Fail. The Princeton Review attempted to call out Taylor Swift to teach students about bad grammar but ended up getting schooled instead.
“Pop lyrics are a great source of bad grammar,” a page in the practice test reads, before offering examples of lyrics from hitmakers Swift, Katy Perry, Whitney Houston, and Lady Gaga to decipher.
Swift’s lyric in question is from her song “Fifteen” and reads: “Somebody tells you they love you, you got to believe ‘em.” Which is fine, except that it’s not the correct lyric. Instead, the test prep should have printed, “Somebody tells you they love you, you’re gonna believe them.”
After a fan called out the fail to Swift, the singer perfectly schooled the company on her Tumblr.
“Not the right lyrics at all pssshhhh. You had one job, test people,” she wrote. “One job.”
