Over the last month, Taylor Swift has sparked quite the controversy with the lead single,' Look What You Made Me Do', from her upcoming album Reputation. The young singer has debuted an entirely new sound, and the old Taylor is certainly not coming back. Why, you may ask? Well, as Taylor herself said, "because she's dead!".
It goes without saying that Swift has received more than enough criticism and hate from around the globe, more recently being branded with the moniker of "snake" which was derived from the Kim Kardashian Twitter drama of 2016 surrounding lyrics from Kanye West's song, 'Famous'. Taylor had no problem reclaiming this name when she introduced her new era with three short videos of a snake slithering on Twitter and Instagram.
Singer-songwriter Swift has a brand new "no fucks given attitude", firing multiple shots at numerous people she's allegedly had beef with in the lyrics of the song including Katy Perry, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. "The world moves on, another day another drama but not for me, all I think about is karma," she muses.
The lyrics of the song are for sure a new direction for Taylor, and its accompanying music video leaves anyone who watches it in shock as she completely turns every hint of criticism on its head. One things for sure: whether or not you personally like Miss Swift, the styling in the vcideo is a genius move and definitely a money maker. It features many of her personas, aka the old versions of Taylor, including one Taylor from 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', one from the 2009 VMAs and a lot of other iconic looks and identities she's had in the past. "I don't trust nobody, and nobody trusts me," she cooes.
Then, just when we thought Taylor was done, she debuted another song from her album entitled '...Ready For It?' which once again features a new edgy, experimental and badass Taylor. "In the middle of the night in my dreams, you should see the things we do baby," she sings over a pulsing baseline.
