Here's Who Taylor Swift's Shading And Praising On Her New Album
The New Taylor loves throwing shade.
It shouldn't surprise you at this point that #TheNewTaylor gives absolutely 0 fucks when it comes to what you, or anyone else thinks of her. Since dropping her new album 'Reputation', Taylor has put many an ex on blast.
Taylor didn't stop at singing about exes, however. In the past couple years we've seen a new level of Taylor Swift, one that loves to call out her enemies and boost her (current) boos.
Look What You Made Me Do
Who did it shade? Kim and Kanye, of course.
The lyric? "I don't like your little games / Don't like your tilted stage / The role you made me play / Of the fool / No, I don't like you."
Who's it about? Taylor's new boy toy, Joe Alwyn.
The lyric? "You should take it as a compliment / That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk … Ocean blue eyes, looking in mine / I feel like I might sink and drown and die / You're so gorgeous / I can't say anything to your face / 'Cause look at your face / And I'm so furious / At you for making me feel this way / But what can I say? / You're gorgeous."
...Ready For It?
Who's it about? Also Joe Alwyn. New Taylor is really into promoting her baes.
The lyric? "Younger than my exes / But he act like such a man … Burton to his Taylor / Every love I've known in comparison is a failure."
I Did Something Bad
Who does it shade? Kanye, and also kim.
The lyric? (about Kanye) “If a man talks s—t, then I owe him nothing. I don’t regret it one bit, ‘cause you had it coming.”
(about Kim)“They got their pitchforks and proof, their receipts and reasons / They're burning all the witches, even if you aren't one / So light me up (light me up)”
This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things
Who did it shade? Kanye. AGAIN. (Maybe chill a little, Tay??)
The lyric? “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”
Don't Blame Me
Who did it shade? Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston and Jake Gyllenhaal.
The lyric? “I’ve been breakin' hearts a long time / And toyin' with them older guys.”
Who did it shade? Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris and possibly T-Swift herself.
The lyric? “But you weren't thinkin’/ And I was just drinkin’/ Well, he was runnin’ after us, I was screamin’, "go, go, go!" / But with three of us, honey, it's a sideshow / And a circus ain’t a love story /And now we're both sorry.”
Call It What You Want
Who did it shade? Katy Perry.
Who did it praise? Bf Joe Alwyn, though she calls him her boyfriend her brother...gross....
The lyrics? (about Katy) “All the drama queens taking swings / All the jokers dressing up as kings” (about Joe) “I’m laughin' with my lover, makin' forts under covers/ Trust him like a brother / Yeah, you know I did one thing right”
