Taylor Swift’s new single is already breaking records.
Critics of Swift have slammed her “edgy” new look as a missed opportunity to turn heel. (The “Old Taylor.is dead!”) We see her being served tea by her snake minions (a possible nod to fans swarming her social media with snake emojis after Kim Kardashian West released an incriminating clip of Swift last year). Considering 1989 was a mix of ebullient anthems and soft power pop, “Look What You Made Me Do” is an aural kick in the head but weirdly, I like it?
Fans seem to be thrilled that good ol’ T-Swift is back and are LOVING her new look as well!
Although Taylor Swift’s new song clearly revealed that she is still unhappy with someone, her rival Katy Perry, on the other hand, has previously shared that she is ready to bury the hatchet with her ex-pal. The collectibles will include a copy of the album, Taylor’s poetry and paintings, handwritten lyrics, personal photos and fashion portraits. Following the controversy, director Joseph Kahn, who helmed the Swift video, turned to Twitter to downplay any similarities between the two videos.
Just a few examples: “I don’t like your tilted stage/The role you made me play/Of the fool” could be a reference to the actors in Braavos who put on a version of the Stark family’s life-and painted her father, Ned Stark as a buffoon.
Declaring her hate towards the said person, the Shake It Offf creator sings the line: ‘I don’t like your little games/ Don’t like your titled stage/ The role you made me play/ Of the fool/No, I don’t like you’. “Love and respect to Bey”, he tweeted. The song’s lyric video more than doubled the previous record for most views on a lyric video in 24 hours.
Specifically, “Single Ladies”, which Kanye famously called “one of the greatest videos of all time” (“Imma let you finish.”) while, uh, snagging Taylor’s stage time at the VMAs.
We see her crash a vehicle and pose for paparazzi while holding a Grammy.
