“Of the fool, no, I don’t like you“.
“I don’t like your little games / Don’t like your tilted stage“, Swift sings at the beginning of her new song, heavily implying she’s talking about West, who recently performed his Saint Pablo Tour on a tilted stage. This stigma she has, started with her feud with Kanye. Now it appears Swift is preparing for an upcoming tour or at least new shows. “You ask me for a place to sleep / Locked me out and threw a feast” could be a reference to Walder Frey, who locked members of her family in his home for the Red Wedding massacre, while she was locked out. She drives the point home later in the song: “I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me”. To many people, the answer is yes.
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? “I do it all the time”.
“It’s not news Taylor Swift and Kanye West dislike each other, but the timing of her new album release takes it to a whole new level”, the outlet revealed to readers on August 25.

Listen to the two songs side-by-side here.
There have been rumors circulating for a while now that Swift would be releasing new music.
West took to Twitter to set the record straight, writing, “I called Taylor and had an hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny”.
“I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now”, Swift sings. “Why? Oh, ’cause she’s dead”.
Between her tabloid-grabbing dramas and a few questionable choices of singles (like the anemic Bad Blood), it’s been easy to forget that Swift is one of her generation’s best songwriters, and 1989 is a very good album.
Whether it will be successful in salvaging her Reputation, however, is unclear.
Taylor Swift’s new tune is getting a swift kick from many of her fans.
Taylor Swift dropped a lot this week. So it only makes sense that she’d rip a sample from the burn book bible – Mean Girls.
But there was one thing that really caught people’s ear. The lyrics went on to say, “No I don’t like you”.
