Are You "Ready for It"? Taylor Swift's Hot Single Analyzed

Enough is enough, here is a full analysis on Taylor Swift's hottest new single - and I mean, it. Is. Hot. - Swift first dropped her debut "Look What You Made Me Do" to introduce her newest, and possibly best, album titled, Reputation.

Reputation opens with the line, "Knew he was killer first time I saw him"; obviously, this can reference anyone, but out of all of her exes who was the one who continuously broke hearts? There are two evident suspects: Harry Styles and Joe Alwyn, but then again, why would she be singing negatively about her current beau? There are many questions and thoughts to ponder over, so let's go deeper.

We all know that Styles is a heartthrob and he seems to break many hearts, but so does Swift, so could it be safe to assume that this is perhaps Taylor Swift's own reputation, but in a male's perspective? I think we can take Joe Alwyn off the table, because he is her current boyfriend, and nonetheless, it would be odd to sing negatively about a current boyfriend.

Swift and Styles had an interesting romance, although it was short lived, it still does not live up to Taylor squared. Anyhow, in her following line, "But if he's a ghost, then I can be a phantom", I believe she is responding to Styles' song "Two Ghost's". This is more than likely her calling Styles out saying that she could hold him for leading women on and dumping them before he dives too far in.

The song goes on from there, with small, hidden messages that throw out clues from their island getaway back in early 2013, to encounters with the press on Styles breaking hearts and leaving the victim on the ground. Swift's new single is one for the books, and this should also be one to not only annotate and decipher meaning, but to enjoy the story.

Swift's titled album, Reputation, will be released November 10, 2017.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
