Taylor Swift IS the new Arya Stark!

Think about it - a girl who was loved but now just wants to murder people at random...

Yup - two years from now she will be ridding a toy train on the throne.



Discuss.

Would be impressive if the new song wasn't objectively atrocious.

The song probably wouldn't even make top 50 Taylor songs. It's a continuation and even harder lean into the 1989 sound and mood (especially "Bad Blood") which was my least favorite thing she's done in her career.

Here's hoping some of the other songs on the album have some guitar on them?

I for one think it's good that Taylor is starting two months of album release hype with an atonal single featuring terrible lyrics about a year-old beef nobody gives a shit about anymore.

Now that's what I call poptimism.

What is the poptimism thing? I've seen it referenced since this song came out but don't know what it means.

Basically poptimism is a response to people who think rock music is the only style with any value. It encourages the unironic enjoyment of pop music and tries (and has largely succeeded) to bring critical attention to pop artists like Taylor, Carly Rae Jepsen, Beyoncé, etc.

Impy's post had nothing to do with that, I was just making a stupid pun.

Hmmm, by that definition I am an old school poptimist. I've been encouraging that shit for a long time. Not sure if I actually want to label myself that, though.

I think people like you and me just like pop and are glad the rest of the world is catching up.


Also, I'm glad that I listened to this Taylor song. With one sentence, I am now free. Old Taylor is dead. I can finally move on and stop hoping. Sweet sweet freedom.

What the fuck is she doing? The second single is better than the first one but it's one of the most unoriginal songs I've ever heard in my life
