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

Imperious Taylor Swift on the Reputation album cover

Reputation, Swift's first studio album in three years, marks another transformation in image for the country-turned-pop star. With over 10 million streams, it is the most-streamed song in a one-day period ever, the lyric video for "Look What You Made Me Do" broke the standing record with over 19 million views, while the music video shattered the original most viewed video (28 million) record with 43.2 million views in only 24 hours. Of course in the time between albums, Swift has also gained infamy for being petty as fuck. The "ocean blue eyes" Swift sings about on Gorgeous nearly certainly belong to Alwyn, a motif that repeats onDancing With Our Hands Tied ("Deep blue, but you painted me golden") and Delicate ("Oh damn, never seen that color blue").

Calling out Kardashian and West for releasing a recording of conversation with the rapper over his song lyrics in Famous, Swift sang: "Friends don't try to trick you / Get you on the phone and mind-twist you / And so I took an axe to a mended fence".

She references the calls again in 'This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things'.

In a review headlined "Taylor Swift is no longer America's sweetheart", Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt called Reputation an "oddly bifurcated creation, half obsessed with grim score settling and celebrity damage, half infatuated with a lover who takes her away from all that".


The line, "I've got a boyfriend / He's older than us / He's in the club doing I don't know what", in "Gorgeous" is believed to be about Calvin or Tom Hiddleston. She starts by singing that she is not a fan of the "little games", "your tilted stage" or "the role you made me play of the fool, no, I don't like you". "It was so nice being friends again/There I was giving you a second chance/But then you stabbed my back while shaking my hand", she sings.

"But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / If only you weren't so shady", she continues, raising a toast to her real friends, her mother, and then eventually to West.

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things may be an enjoyable slice of pettiness, but the album's crown jewel of gossip is Getaway Car, which sees Swift in full storyteller mode as she chronicles using one doomed relationship to escape another. To follow the song's metaphor, Hiddleston is the getaway auto driver who whisks Swift away from another man ("Well he was running after us / I was screaming 'Go go go!'"). On Reputation, the Taylor she's chosen to show us is one that's more confident than ever.

Swift is definitely feeling herself and all the love that's come from her new creation.
