The old Taylor is dead and now we just don’t know what to do about it! The highly anticipated release of her first single, Look What You Made Me Do, from her newest album Reputation, was nothing short of shocking, dark and, well, a bit morbid. With catchy beats and a new persona, we are completely thrown as to how we feel about this “new” Taylor Swift.
While fans and critics alike are hitting up social media, picking apart every inch of her revenge-driven music video, we can’t help but ask….why?! We loved you old Taylor! And as some us are full fledged into the new swing of things, drooling at the prospect for more edgy arrivals with the rest of her album dropping in November, some of us are outright sad that the side of Taylor we all knew and loved is simply gone.
Whether you are a die hard ‘Swiftie’ or constant critic, you gotta give the girl props where props are due. She has no shame in calling out numerous celebrity rivals in this deliciously juicy single – from the over-drawn Katy Perry drama, to her ex Tom Hiddleston, to a particularly low-blow at Kimye – she just doesn’t stop.
All we can hope is that our beloved Taylor is still in there somewhere, and that the rest of the album isn’t quite as petty as this single is shaping out to be. But don’t worry Tay, there is no Bad Blood between us, we’re just hoping it all turns into one big Love Story… 🙂
So how do you feel about the “new” Taylor…are you yay or nay?!
