LOOK WHAT WE MADE HER DO, YOU GUYS. First, Taylor Swift deletes her social media. Then, she posts f* cking creepy-crawlies snake videos., she discontinues her long-awaited single “Look What You Cleared Me Do” at perhaps the most inopportune era because people “ve tried to” SLEEP. AND NOW, she puts a goddamn brand-new music video in the middle of an bestows show. CAN SHE MAYBE LET ME LIVE FOR TWO SECONDS? Anyway, Taylor Swift’s “LWYMMD” video is lastly here, in the middle of the 2017 VMAs, and let me just say, my president hasn’t stopped spinning for, like, 10 minutes.
I mean, I feel like just yesterday Taylor was dancing around in pajamas to “We Are Never Getting Back Together, ” but Jesus , now, she’s wearing black bodysuits, fishnets, a knot of snake hoops, and piercing jewelry. WHO IS SHE ???? WHAT IS SHE DOING ???? WHAT’S GOING ON ???? Well, I don’t actually know. But I do know one thing: The “LWYMMD” music video is legit absurd and creepy as f* ck.
The video starts out in a damn graveyard with Taylor looks a lot like a legit zombie crawling out of her tomb. Then, she’s suddenly in a dwelling, lying in a bathtub of gems and sitting on a throne surrounded by snakes.( What kind of fresh hell is this residence ?)
Soon after that, she’s crashing a really expensive car. Then, she’s cheating a bank. IDK, you guys, I can scarcely keep up. I gazed at her posse of male dancers for eight years, maybe. And lastly, she’s standing atop of enormous collection of people, all of whom are older different versions of HERSELF and who come together at the end to showcase “the old-fashioned Taylor” we all thought we knew. Mostly, this video shows the old-fashioned Taylor really is dead. That’s why she can’t come to the phone right now. You feel me?
Even without this latest video, Taylor’s pretty much expended the last couple of weeks constituting everyone get “WTF” after hovering out of her music hiatus like a damn bat outta inferno. Back on Aug. 18, the singer literally mopped her social media cleanse — Instagram, Twitter, everything. A few days later, she started posting videos of a creepy-crawly ass snake — apparently in reference to the fact that she had a bit of a reputation as a serpent, thanks to the lovely Kim Kardashian. Earnestly, those videos looked like they materialized straight out of my nightmares.( Not refrigerate, Tay .) FINALLY, following the serpent videos, at around 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 24, Taylor did The Thing( tm ). She lowered “Look What You Cleared Me Do, ” basically taking “the old-fashioned Taylor, ” murdering her, and hiding the body far, far away where no one is to be able to find her, so this new, snake-y, edgy Taylor can reign supreme.
While the ballad itself was received with mix reactions, people were quick to agree on one thing and unavoidably become f* cking comical memes about it: A pile of love ponder the video preview is reminiscent of Beyonce’s “Formation” music video. Like, actually reminiscent. It’s like when you use someone’s homework in high school as a cite, but you change a few cases of the answers to be wrong so it won’t appear suspicious — only it’s still suspicious AF.
As much as I actually dislike the internet sometimes( sorry, internet ), I really can’t deny that sometimes, it genuinely is the endowment that retains on affording. And I can’t wait to see the comical memes born from Taylor’s brand-new video that I’ll laugh at to myself alone in my bunk tonight.
Make sure to prepare your Twitters for when the totality of Taylor Swift’s brand-new album plunges on Nov. 10.
