Grab Yo' Popcorn: Who Taylor Swift's Album Throws SHADE At

Taylor Swift began her forced march back to world domination in August with "Look What You Made Me Do", the first single from Reputation (Big Machine ***), the Wyomissing, Pa-raised pop star's sixth album which went on up sale - but not on music streaming services - at midnight on Thursday evening. "There will be slideshows of photos backing up each incorrect theory, because it's 2017 and if you didn't see a picture of it, it couldn't have happened right?"

What's worse, straight off the bat Swift tipped off that the "you" she refers to is Kanye West ("I don't like your little games / Don't like your titled stage"), who Swift has had an on-and-off feud with ever since he rudely spoiled her MTV VMA award winning acceptance speech in 2009. She even sits in a bathtub full of diamonds while miming a gun with her hand, causing some people to wonder if she was savagely mocking Kim's traumatic Paris robbery in which she was tied up at gunpoint and left in a bathtub. For all intents and purposes, the pair considered themselves "friends", something that feels especially significant when you consider this blistering line from "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things": "It was so nice being friends again, there I was giving you a second chance, but you stabbed me in the back without shaking my hand".

Fans and media outlets alike widely viewed the thirteenth track off Redemption as packed with references to her longtime association with Kanye West.

Yes, we have. Swift isn't done with it, however: Her irritation also animates another Reputation track, the extremely catchy and equally grating "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things".

Swift's album already broke a few records.


Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's daughter James has received a credit on Taylor Swift's song Gorgeous. Well, first of all, yes, we can assume there will definitely be a tour thanks to her collaboration with Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan, which aims to give fans better access to tickets.

It is, perhaps, not a huge surprise that James is featured on the song, as the Look What You Made Me Do hitmaker shares a special friendship with the Deadpool actor and his wife. "/ This is why we can't have nice things".

It's also thought that on her song "I Did Something Bad" Taylor touches on her feelings about Calvin Harris and the way he handled their breakup. To follow the song's metaphor, Hiddleston is the getaway vehicle driver who whisks Swift away from another man ("Well he was running after us / I was screaming 'Go go go!'").

Like I said, she's quite proud.

Swift may not want fans to linger on the gossip behind her songs, but when it's as wonderfully told as Getaway Car, honestly, who can blame them?
