Princeton Review Apologizes for Misquoting Taylor Swift

The Princeton Review has swift-ly apologized to Taylor Swift after misquoting her in one of their SAT prep manuals.

On Tumblr earlier this week, Swifty reacted to the Princeton Review’s error, which cited her lyric from “Fifteen” as, “Somebody tells you they love you, you got to believe ‘em.”

Writing on Monday, she wrote, “Not the right lyrics at all pssshhhh. You had one job, test people. One job.”

Just one day later, the Princeton Review apologized, sharing a photo with the correct lyric written on pink paper and glued over the misquote:

Sorry @taylorswift13! We’ll make it up to you. Pick a #grammar lover fan. 2 tickets to a U.S. show on us! @people— The Princeton Review (@ThePrincetonRev) March 24, 2015

TSwift’s fans had fun writing to the company, requesting the tickets with some clever puns. Check out a few examples:

@ThePrincetonRev my mom has a degree in editing (aka she's a Grammar genius) so if you have a blank space for those tickets, write my name?— Caitlin (@swiftiemetafour) March 24, 2015

@ThePrincetonRev we could change the lyrics to "got a long list of grammar lovers, they'll tell you I can write"— messofadreamr13 (@messofadreamr13) March 24, 2015

@ThePrincetonRev Grammar never goes out of style ✌️ @taylornation13 @taylorswift13— Caitlin (@swiftiemetafour) March 24, 2015

@ThePrincetonRev @taylorswift13 cause baby I could build a sentence out of all the verbs and nouns they threw at me. #grammarloveroverhere— Jennifer Benner (@jen__ben) March 24, 2015

So far, there’s been no word from the Swift camp as to whether she accepts their mea culpa.

What do you think of their apology? Let us know down in the comments!
