If you listened to Triple J’s Hottest 100 two years ago, there’s a good chance you remember the Taylor Swift ~controversy~ that preceded it.
In a nutshell, BuzzFeed Australia started the #Tay4Hottest100 campaign to get the pop star’s chart-topper ‘Shake it Off’ voted into the countdown. Eventually, after plenty of public debate, Triple J disqualified the song (…rude), and that was that.
But today, the indisputable Queen of Pop has been voted into the Hottest 100 for the first time in her career. And no, it’s not Taylor.
