At least it sounds a hell of a lot better! And it's got a lot more depth to it.

I think she took some queues from Kpop too. There's a part in the middle that gives me Girls Gen vibes pretty hard!

I don't want to watch the video but Ari is so hype about it that I might have to reconsider... ugh this is Mario + Rabbids again isn't it...

Really? I thought the video was very clearly self-satire (and really the song itself). There was even a bit at the end where all her personas make fun of each other. It's weird how people take Taylor serious when she is being silly and treat her attempts to be serious as silly.

but yeah its definitely a big saaaaaaaaalty vid when it should be an apology oh well where are my snake emojis


An apology for what?

As a song on its own, I think it is a good, not great song (although I could see it growing on me). As a harbinger for the tone of the album, though, I LOVE it.

Nah, the end of the video was funny (especially the "bitch" part). And I get everyone likes that she's "self-aware", but I wish it was less about stepping on haters and more about owning mistakes and actions and stances for once instead of making it seem like she's had words put in her mouth. I liked that I kind of got that feel about her making fun of her past selves, at least.

I don't believe it's effective satire when half the people don't realize it is. I do realize that the video is clearly satire, but the fact she deleted all her social media and was clearly upset about the Kanye thing (look at her Instagram?) gives off a vibe of "but I am being sort of serious."

This is a game she clearly knows how to play very well, though. I really liked Blank Space.

I don't care enough! I'll still listen to her music because I like it but I think the song missed the mark for me. We're all focused on how well she slams the drama around her but maybe that's not what I wanted to see.

I totally agree that this new sound and tone for her music is awesome!

You underestimate her greatly. And she has done self parody before, a few times. So...

Bins, I am bad with keeping up on social media. What is this Kanye thing? Like, I can look into it after work, but if you beat me to the punch I would greatly appreciate it! <3

Well, no. But it really makes for some interesting details and grudgy songs! :)

It's about socities lust for money and fame and how she is a part of it and part of her enjoys her switch from country to pop but part of her regrets it.

it's more of a self reflective version of blank space and less satire.
