Taylor Swift’s writing grip

Taylor Swift’s new Diet Coke ad is out. I’ve attached it below. Feel free to complain about however it is she’s annoying you this time. And her lyrics. And her fringe. Go for it. Me, I’ll be over here, FIXATING ON HER WRITING GRIP.
LOOK AT THAT!
Is that how we do now?
When do these things change? And why aren’t they properly announced? Why isn’t there a public statement released by the writing authorities informing us of the technique modification? Am I too old to learn it? Is it restricted to those born after 1985? How is it superior to the traditional tripod and quadropod grips? Does it increase speed? Does it increase or decrease character angle? Does it improve neatness? WHERE DO THEY TEACH IT?!?
I will be preoccupied by this for the entire day.
Here’s Taylor performing with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban a few days ago at McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night.
