Taylor Releases New Dark Tune, "Look What You Made me Do"

Taylor Releases New Dark Tune, "Look What You Made me Do"

The old Taylor is dead.


“The drought was the very worst.”

In normal Taylor Swift fashion, fans would get a bigger and better album every other year in the fall since 2006. But 2016 came and went and there was no sign of Taylor (since 2014’s 1989.) Although she definitely deserved a break after ten long years, Swifties had a Blank Space in their lives for a while now.

Swifties have been waiting that long to hear something new from Taylor. Sure, we had “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” from Fifty Shades Darker which featured Zayn, and she wrote Little Big Town’s song, “Better Man,” and wrote the lyrics for Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For,” but Swifties were still waiting for the TS6 era.

There had been much speculation online over the past weeks, and Swifties are always sleuthing. If you searched the hashtag #TS6 on Twitter, you could read all of the fans’ theories, predictions, reactions, and eagerness.

Taylor had taken some time off since the 1989 World Tour ended to take care of her mom, Andrea (A.K.A Momma Swift), and to just give herself a break from everything. She was out of the news and spotlight for a long time and was focusing on herself and a new era.

The most we had heard from her was during her trial with the radio DJ who had groped her, which she won with pride and was awarded her symbolic $1.

Then the weekend of August 19th, Taylor wiped all of her social media. She stopped following everyone, took down her profile pictures and cover photo, erased all of her photos, and deleted her bio. Some thought she was hacked, but Swifties knew a new era was rising. Long Live the 1989 Era! You will never be forgotten.

Finally, on Monday August 21st, a video was posted. It was a 10 second clip of what looked like a snake’s tail, a dragon’s tail, no one really knew. Some people thought that Taylor was going to be on Game of Thrones, other thought maybe she was the true heir to Slytherin.

In recent months, Taylor had been called a snake by many in show business and haters on the internet. As Taylor does, she just Shakes It Off, and writes hit songs about it. So the snake tail was thought to be a symbol for a new song. The tail had a 25 in it. The next day the middle of the creature was posted and it looked to have an 8 on it. So many fans thought 8/25 was the release date for a new single.

Finally, on Wednesday, August 23rd, the snakehead was posted and the countdown was on.

So “take a deep breath in the mirror” because only a few hours later, her social media blew up again when the album cover art, title and release date were posted.

Reputation, out November 10th, will be the name of Taylor’s 6th studio album. Her full face is finally back on the cover! It looks like we may be getting a more edgier Taylor this time around, like she is coming back full force and doesn’t give a hoot what others think. I guess you could say Everything Has Changed.

Wipe the Teardrops on your Guitar off because the queen of mega diss tracks is back!

Her new single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” dropped Thursday and it was a truly different sound from Taylor.

It was more of an edgy, punky, song, and many people compared it to the beat of Right Said Fred’s track “I’m too Sexy.”

This new dark era is here to slay our lives and give us songs to scream out loud at parties!

I am so excited for what this new era and album is going to bring! I have a feeling we will be getting A LOT more instagram captions out of this album!

Make sure you buy reputation on November 10th.

She is back and “I think I am finally Clean!”

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
