Every Way Taylor Swift Claps Back at Kanye West on 'Reputation'

Adjust Comment Print

The most obvious Kanye-related song Swift released was "Look What You Made Me Do", which pushed the stars' feud back into the public eye just in time for the release of her full album.

Taylor kicks off with a first line "it was so nice throwing big parties/jump in the pool from the balcony" and even goes on to note that she was "feeling so Gatsby for that whole year". Of course in the time between albums, Swift has also gained infamy for being petty as fuck.

Her long-awaited sixth studio album "Reputation" recently dropped and it turns out, the old Taylor Swift is really gone. Fans and media outlets alike widely viewed the thirteenth track off Redemption as packed with references to her longtime association with Kanye West. Ensuing highlights include the auto-tuned electro-pop of "Delicate", the sickly sweet bubbling beat backing a tale of forbidden love on "Gorgeous" and the most 1989-ish track on the record, "Getaway Car". Swift faced backlash for being a liar over the matter, but now she is revealing her side by calling West two-faced.

"If a man talks s-t, then I owe him nothing", Swift sings in the song.

iHeartRadio is streaming Swift's new album-but only as part of a curated reputation radio station. She starts by singing that she is not a fan of the "little games", "your tilted stage" or "the role you made me play of the fool, no, I don't like you".

Right now, that's the best we're gonna get. "It was so nice being friends again / There I was, giving you a second chance / But you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand", she sings.

"But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / If only you weren't so shady", she continues, raising a toast to her real friends, her mother, and then eventually to West.

Even if some fans were in shock over her passionate lyrics, a lot of them just loved how Taylor didn't hold back in the least on her 15-track album.

Fans think that 'This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things' is aimed at Katy also.

With lyrics like "I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason" and "With three of us, honey, it's a sideshow", the song seems to reference the several months in 2016 when Swift parted ways with Calvin Harris and dated Tom Hiddleston immediately after, before eventually splitting with him too. So it's pretty much safe to say that this might have been the peak "nice things" that she refers to in the song.
