Just when you thought your SAT Prep book was an incredibly reliable source, the publishers go and print books that MISQUOTE Taylor Swift. SMDH.

The Princeton Review used Taylor Swift‘s, among other pop stars’, lyrics to demonstrate bad grammar. The section reads: “Pop lyrics are a great source of bad grammar,” it then prompts the reader to find the errors. A line from Taylor Swift’s song “Fifteen” is used, and ironically, it is completely wrong.

The song goes: “Somebody tells you they love you, you’re gonna believe them,” but the Review printed: “Somebody tells you they love you, you got to believe ’em.” For the record, neither sentence is grammatically correct, however that didn’t stop Swift from putting the book on blast.

She took to her Tumblr account to call out the mistake. “Not the right lyrics at all,” she wrote. “You had one job, test people. One job.”

There is a hashtag, which we think was added by Swift, that reads #accuse me of anything but do not attack my grammar.” Again, we have to point out, either way the sentence is wrong. “Gonna” is in no way, shape or from grammatically correct. Sorry, T Swift. Although, we have to agree that a SAT Prep book should probably be well, accurate.

What do you think of this Taylor Swift misquote?
