The Princeton Review SAT prep book, which if you actually used instead of a tutor, you're probably a nice girl and should go plant a community garden right now, fucked up Taylor Swift lyrics in a desperate attempt to be relevant. In the grammar section of the book, Princeton Review wanted to "connect" with teenagers using the book and decided to use grammatically incorrect pop lyrics. K.
They tried to quote Taylor Swift's song "Fifteen," a power ballad about Taylor's high school experience where her bestie Abby delusionally dated a bro. Princeton Review quoted her as singing, "Somebody tells you they love you, you got to believe 'em" when the actual lyric is "Somebody tells you they love you, you're gonna believe them." Either way, if you didn't learn this until you were 15, then you wasted middle school.
Anyway, Taylor and her fans freaked the fuck out. Taylor tweeted "You had one job test people. One job. Accuse me of anything but not my grammar." I agree with her that whoever fucked this up needs to be fired, but the rest is a little dramatic. Hopefully Princeton Review's next SAT prep book is written entirely in Taylor Swift lyrics.
