Here's the truth: Taylor Swift is a snake.
We know this not only because she wiped her social media and has replaced it exclusively with snake videos, but also because:
- She claimed to have written ex Calvin Harris's hit song "This Is What You Came For" after the pair split up.
- She publicly dragged Kanye West for including her in his song "Famous," despite the fact that she had heard and approved of the inclusion before its release.
- She responded to Kim Kardashian's receipts of said conversation with the now-infamous "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative" Instagram note.
- She re-released all her music on Spotify the day rival Katy Perry's new album came out.
- She regularly makes music videos with doppelgangers of her exes and leaves clues in her liner notes about them, but then gets upset when press speculates on her relationships or when they respond to the songs written about them.
And that's just for starters. It's a long, shady list folks! But with her new social media teasers, the star is making clear that if you can't be excluded from the narrative, join it. Hot on the heels of her recent court win, in which she scorched the legal team of the man who sexually assaulted her harder than Daenerys Targaryen north of The Wall, it seems like Swift is ready to embrace her power as both a woman and the world's biggest pop star. Will her new single be a tongue-in-cheek reference to her own shadiness à la "Blank Space" or will it be a new bite at those she's feuded with for so long? Only time will tell.
Until then, though, Swift's new snake phase couldn't have arrived at a better time. Serpents are having a moment in fashion, so we rounded up some of our favorite snake pieces to shop while you wait to see which direction this Swift drag goes. Much like putting Harry Styles on blast through thinly veiled song metaphors, wearing real snakeskin sucks. Wearing snake print, though, is OK in our book.
And P.S.: "1989" still bangs.
