Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Magazine Covers Prove She's Trolling All Of Us
Taylor Swift has made it clear she's not messing around with gossip anymore. Reputation is coming out on Nov. 10, at midnight, and the days leading up to the album's release have been packed with new content from Swift revealing things like the Reputation tracklist, behind-the-scenes videos highlighting the creation of the album, and now, the back covers of the Reputation magazines that are available at Target when you buy the album. And Taylor Swift's Reputation magazine covers prove she's trolling all of us with this album release.
On Wednesday, Nov. 8, Swift tweeted two photos that are apparently the back covers of the Reputation magazines that will be available come tomorrow, Nov. 10. Her tweet said,
The covers themselves say things like "WHO IS OLIVIA'S REAL FATHER?" and "CATITUDE! MEREDITH IS OUT OF CONTROL!" In case you didn't know, Olivia and Meredith are Swift's two cats named after Olivia Benson from Law & Order: SVU and Meredith Grey from Grey's Anatomy. This is expert trolling, if I do say so myself. The magazine covers show Swift making fun of tabloid coverage of her over the years while also making fun of herself. The magazines themselves will reportedly feature poems written by Swift as well as photos from her Reputation photo shoot.
I can't lie. They're pretty funny.
Swift is really going gung-ho with this whole "F the media" angle with Reputation.
Is this angle about the ~dishonest media~ pretty poorly/insensitively timed given the fact that the President of the United States actively tries to discredit one of the most important tenets of American democracy? One hundred percent. But look what we made her do!!
Swift's "Call It What You Want" lyrics highlight the emotional side of how done she is with tabloid gossip. The lyrics go:
Swift released the Reputation tracklist earlier this week, and it looks like the first half of the album is about her media reputation and the second half is about her relationship with Joe Alwyn.
Reputation comes out Friday, Nov. 10, at midnight.
