In the ultimate Kanye diss track, Tay decided she is done apologizing. In “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” she talks all about the lavish parties she used to have before a certain rapper rained on her parade.
She compares Kanye to a little kid who keeps breaking toys, so there’s nothing left to do but take them away from him. She also calls him shady and blames him for stabbing her in the back and for trying to trick her. Jesus, this is too much, even for us!
Joe Alwyn Was So "Gorgeous" Taylor Was Scared to Approach Him
The track, from Swift’s “Reputation” is about a man so ridiculously gorgeous that Taylor can't even open her mouth next to him! At first, some people speculated the song was about Tom Hiddleston, but all of the clues actually point to Joe Alwyn. Mainly, the fact that Joe is two years younger than the singer, and that Hiddleston is much older than both. Why does this matter?
Well, the line "And I got a boyfriend/ he's older than us/He's in the club doing, I don't know what." Might indicate Tay had her eye on Joe while she was still with Tom.
Running Away From Calvin Harris in "Getaway Car"
In this fan favorite, the songstress uses the imagery of criminals in their getaway car to discuss the way she left Calvin Harris for Tom Hiddleston. But wait, there's more. In an insane plot twist, after Tom helped Tay evade the crime, she left him too. Basically, Tom was just driving the getaway car.
What happened next? Well, Tay tells it like it is "I left you in the motel bar/Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys/That was the last time you ever saw me." Ouch, we bet Hiddleston hates this one.
Putting the Kim-Kanye Fued Behind Her in "I Forgot That You Existed"
They say that the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. If that's true this song is more of a victory than an actual diss track. This one is the first song on her 2019 album "Lover," and it seems like she wanted it to set the tone for the album: I'm over all the drama (but not really.)
The title is pretty self-explanatory here. The real question is, is this even actually about Kanye? Some fans swear it has to be the case. Others claim this is actually about her ex-lover, DJ Calvin Harris.
Fighting for Gay Rights in "You Need to Calm Down"
Like almost anything the superstar does, this song sparked controversy. Why? Well, Taylor was trying to do a good thing here, and talk about the struggles of the LGBT+ community. However, many were mad at the fact she compared her own seemingly harmless haters to people who hate queer people.
Tay is also giving some solid, free advice in the song: We should all try and control our desire to shout about all the people we loathe. Great tip, but we don't think we're gonna take it. Just like Swift herself, we are actually having too much fun being shady!
