The Princeton Review has apologized to Taylor Swift after the test-prep company posted the wrong lyrics to her song “Fifteen” in some of its SAT prep materials.
In addition to saying “sorry,” the company told Swift it would give the “grammar lover fan” of her choice two tickets to a U.S. show.

Even though the company apologized, Princeton Review senior vp-publisher Rob Franek told MTV News that even with the correct lyrics, the grammar is still wrong.
“If we look at the whole sentence, it starts off with ‘somebody,’ and ‘somebody,’ as you know, is a singular pronoun and if it’s singular, the rest of the sentence has to be singular,” he said. So the lyric should either be: “Somebody tells you he/she loves you, you’re gonna believe him/her.” Or: “Some people tell you they love you, you’re gonna believe them.”
