Taylor Swift Teams Up With Ed Sheeran + Future in “End Game” Music Video!

Taylor Swift has been pretty quiet since her latest album release, towards the end of 2017, but that hasn’t stopped her from dominating the charts and release next level music videos. Her newest release “End Game” features pop star Ed Sheeran and rapper Future who are also featured on the song!



The video takes place in multiple locations, Miami, Tokyo, and London! Swift first appears in the video, pulling back the curtains in each city. We are then taken to Miami where Swift and Future are rolling in the high life, on fancy yachts and expensive cars as they party about the town.



We then find Sheeran in Tokyo. We have so many questions about what he is doing in Tokyo, but it looks like fun. Who wouldn’t want to go to Tokyo with your best friend and play Dance Dance Revolution, ride motorcycles and eat everything in sight? Sometimes you just need to escape the pressures of life and run away for a year, just like Sheeran and his girl did, where Sheeran didn’t even post on social media!



We shoot over to London, where Swift is drinking champagne, playing a snake game on her phone, riding in double-decker buses and having the time of her life. Don’t worry, Sheeran is there too, which makes sense since he is from the UK!



There were also a ton of hidden messages in the video. Even a shout out to her boyfriend Joe Alwyn and his brother Patrick.


What did we learn from this video? Swift can travel the world without being noticed, she’s doing better than she ever was, and she sees everything. Shade noted.

Earlier this year when a makeup artist tweeted he was “wearing Taylor Swift’s skin” while in a snake-skin outfit, referencing her recently being called a snake by haters. Swift used the same outfit he posted and wore it in the music video. Well played Swift, well-played.



What your favorite part of the End Game Music video???



Taylor Swift is NOT Attacking the Media in the “…Ready For It?” Music Video

Even the super great media outlets don’t understand the depth that is Taylor Swift on their own. Most superfans (despite what they would be willing to admit) don’t either. The truth is, someone sees something and helps people connect the dots. Someone else shares something different and even more is connected. It’s not a competition about who can be the best, or understand the most, but coming together collectively and allowing everyone to understand the meaning, should be a goal.

There is so much in Swift’s videos that will probably go unnoticed by everyone, that is how in-depth she is. We all need each other and instead of tearing people down, or trying to be competitive, it’s best to just be honest.

Look, as a big Taylor Swift fan, we all know the media gets information from her fans by following them on social media. The bad theories the media comes up with on their own, or they get it from people tweeting about Swift, who aren’t actually fans of her.

The “…Ready For It” Music Video does not attack the media, so let’s all cool our jets, and look at the imagery and metaphors we’ve been able to piece together. When the song came out, I wrote a piece about the lyrics and Swift herself even liked it on Tumblr! It was pretty cool and if you didn’t see it, check it out below and then let’s discuss the video!

No One Was Ready For Taylor Swift’s New Song “…Ready For It?”

If you haven’t seen the video yet, watch here!


The video is pretty amazing and I saw one piece on the internet that was attacking the video for not being more about her amazing relationship with her boyfriend, and instead attacking the media. Well, the video is all about her amazing boyfriend and living carefree, and that my friends is why instead of judging something at surface level, you look below the surface to see what is really going on.

There are so many hints about her amazing angel of a boyfriend, Joe Alwyn as she is walking down the hallway filled with cyborgs (which could represent the media). Just run with me on this idea for a second. Ok, so let’s say the hooded version of Taylor is the version that people perceive her to be (the ones who don’t really know her and yes who the media helps to create with their angry think pieces of how they think her life should be lived).


So here she is walking down this creepy hallway with spiders coming down and everything, but along the walls, covered in graffiti are words. Some in English and others in Chinese. Here’s what the Chinese symbols reveal:

Fame, Eddie (Possibly Ed Sheeran maybe a nickname for Joe), Saint Joseph (Joseph Kahn – Director), Taylor, Forever, love, The Year of the Snake, Future (possibly like the Rapper, or maybe just whatever the future holds and hoping it’s a lasting one with Joe) and Reputation.

There has been a rumored collaboration on the album, but since I have zero percent confirmation on that, we won’t weigh into it that much. But an Ed Sheeran/Future collab could be amazing.

Here’s what’s written in English:

All eyes on us, UR Gourgous, This is enough, I love you in secret, 13. They’re burning all the witches. There are also 89 + 91, written which most likely represents Taylor and Joe’s birth years. 13, of course, is her favorite/lucky number. I love you in secret, could take us to the song Gorgeous where she hated Joe so much because she couldn’t have him and wanting him, which follows along with UR Gourgous. All eyes on us is relevant because the media always is! This is enough is Taylor finally standing up and just showing that she’s not going to let others control her life. She is going to live and be happy no matter what. (More on “They’re burning all the witches” later).

Taylor isn’t trying to attack the media and she is not playing a victim. She is simply standing up for who she is as a person and not allowing the media to dictate her narrative. Standing up for yourself, being brave, is not attacking.

Apart from what the video physically says, let’s get into the metaphors and what they could mean. Since I don’t know the true back story of the song or the concept of the video, all I can offer is some personal insight.

So we first see this hooded version of Taylor who seems pretty bad ass, walking past all these cyborgs and everything with no cares. That can be interpreted a lot of different ways. It could be the version of her that people have seemed to create, and that this version of her has become hardened to the media and what others say about her. This version of her turns out to be a robot so it could be just this role she was playing. This person she thought she needed to be. That she wasn’t able to really be herself because of the backlash. She has to present herself in a certain way, dress a certain way, talk a certain way, not do certain things so she wouldn’t get an even worse reputation. But this version of her was wearing a hood because it’s not her true self.


Her true self was contained, vulnerable and see through. She got knocked down a few times by the other version of her, telling her she wasn’t ready to truly be free. But the real her had to get stronger, she built up her own protection and rose up to fight back.


She became her own savior showing up on a white freaking horse. She had to fight back against this bad reputation she had gotten and destroy it, completely erasing that narrative and now she is working her way back up to tell her story and be her true self.


She discovers the wonders of the world for the first time as she discovers what it’s like to live more carefree, not be trapped behind everyone’s ideas about her and just live.


But the version of her that’s been out living in front of everyone wants to know, if she’s ready for it. She knocks her down and then her true self has to fight back and prove she is in fact, ready for it. Ready to start living.


Once she breaks free, she is able to start climbing her way back to freedom. Where the other version of her stands atop a staircase that says “They’re Burning All the Witches.” Taylor is one of the kindest, most genuine and purest of hearts. When you asked someone why they don’t like her, they can’t really give you a good reason. Mostly, because there isn’t one. Yet still, she has been attacked over the course of her career no matter what she does (in secret even) to give back, help more, be generous. She gets crucified for headlines, everything is twisted and taken out of context. There’s no rhyme or reason for it and there doesn’t have to be any sort of real proof to destroy a person. There is no justice system and for many witches in the earlier centuries, it was enough to just be believed to be a witch to be burned at the stake.


Women don’t have a voice and ones who do get silenced and destroyed. I’ve never seen a true story about Taylor that has proven her to be a horrible person or someone who deserves any kind of bad treatment shown to her. Miscommunication happens, but ask yourself, what has she ever done, to make her hated?

Does the amount of people she has dated affect your love life? Has she personally hurt you? Why is she attacked for relationships not working out and why are the males who have dated so many or had one-time hookups not put on display? Why are women so easy to get attacked, yet men glorified for looking so good with their shirt off? Taylor wears a nude colored body suit and the whole world loses their mind.

But she is free now, she doesn’t care what anyone else says and instead of doing interviews to promote her new album, she’s out there inviting fans who have never had the chance to meet her before, to her house. So far, there’s been at least 500 of them in the last couple of weeks. This woman is human, she’s a person. Think about that the next time you go to write an article about how you think she should be.


Taylor Swift Teases Sci-Fi Music Video For “…Ready For It?”

Swifties are such an incredible fanbase to make music videos for! Taken straight out of Joseph Kahn‘s (The Director of the “…Ready For It?” Music Video) mouth!

Taylor Swift‘s 2nd single off her much-anticipated 6th studio album Reputation will in fact be, “…Ready For It?” The song was originally released as a promo single but will serve as the second official single. Although it is rare to get an official second single before an official album drop, since “Look What You Made Me Do” already reached #1, she might as well go for that next one!

Reputation will be out November 10, but fans have already heard 3 songs off the album!

Taylor Swift Wants You To Know Who Her New Song “Gorgeous” Is About!

Swift just posted a trailer for her second music video off the album, and it’s straight out of The Fifth Element or something! Some crazy Sci-Fi effects happening! Just when you thought nothing could beat the “Look What You Made Me Do” music video, which by the way shattered every record possible, Swift comes up with a light up nude looking body suit which could quite possibly resemble how naked and bare she feels having her private life on display all of the time.

No One Was Ready For Taylor Swift’s New Song “…Ready For It?”

This video has such strong parallels to previous work! Take a look at the trailer and be prepared to be blown away! We’ll get into all the details once the full video is released!!

Liz Huett Releases Sexy Music Video For “STFU & Hold Me”

Gonna be real honest here and just say I am definitely lively through Liz Huett in her music video for her single “STFU & Hold Me.” The only thing I’ve actually done is jump in a bounce house so clearly, I am not truly living.

🌈 💜🌈

A post shared by Liz Huett (@lizhuett) on

I’ve definitely been championing and cheering Huett on for years, ever since I was first introduced to her while she was performing with Taylor Swift. I’ve been to live shows and the girl really knows how to draw her own crowd and own a stage!

So proud of Liz and everything she is setting out to do on her own terms! She has been on all kinds of Spotify trending lists and receiving love from so many media outlets, including EW who premiered her Music Video!

Congrats Liz, and we can’t wait for the rest of the music!

Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” Music Video References All the Criticism She’s Gotten in the Last Decade

Holy SWIFT! If you thought you were prepared to watch Taylor Swift‘s iconic music video for “Look What You Made Me Do, the lead single of her 6th studio album Reputation, you definitely were not! There was so much in it, that it definitely requires watching the video on repeat!


Now, that you’ve watched the video one more time, let’s discuss all the details!! Of course, the mastermind that is Taylor Swift, there is probably so much more we are missing, but here’s what we caught…

Let’s start from the beginning and work our way through ’til the end! Sit tight, there’s a lot to cover!

The video starts off in a graveyard, and if you listen to the song, you know why… the old Taylor Swift is dead. The tombstones line up to spell out TS, nice.

Screen Shot 2017-08-27 at 10.11.29 PM

Then we get a close-up of the grave that reads “Here Lies TAYLOR SWIFT’S REPUTATION,”  which is also the name of her new album, out November 10. The significance? The video addresses basically everything the media has said about Swift over the last decade.


We are then scared out of our minds as “Out Of The Woods” music video Taylor climbs out of the grave. The old Taylor that found herself apparently died but is now back from the dead to set the record straight.


For real though, she might really be the actress starring in our bad dreams.

We also catch a glimpse of another tombstone that reads “Nils Sjoberg” which is the pseudonym name she used to hide the fact she wrote ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris‘ song “This Is What You Came For.” After trying to hide the fact, and getting stabbed in the back, Swift has probably learned her lesson and won’t be letting other people get the credit for her work.

Screen Shot 2017-08-27 at 10.25.16 PM

So we start off with “Out Of The Woods” Taylor which was the last official music video made for the 1989 era. (“New Romantics” was a tour video). OOTW Taylor is burying ‘Met Gala’ Taylor which was the Taylor at the beginning of the 1989 era. We quickly flash to a “Blank Space” Taylor who is sitting in a bathtub full of pearls, as she explains that the media (“Blank Space” is a satirical song about the way the media perceives Taylor) just assumes that she “cries in a marble bathtub surrounded by pearls.” (Anyone who thinks this scene is mocking Kim Kardashian‘s robbery, is literally sick in the head and needs to educate themselves.)

It got pretty out of control there for a couple of years. Every article was like ‘taylor swift standing next to some guy– watch out guy!’. Every single article had these descriptions of my personality that were very different from my actual personality. My first reaction was ‘man that’s a bummer, this isn’t fun for me’. But my second reaction ended up being ‘hey, that’s actually an interesting character they’re writing about… like she jets sets around the world, collecting men and she can get any of them but she’s so clingy that they leave and then she cries in her marble bathtub surrounded by pearls.


You know what Taylor Swift is really doing in her bathtub? Plotting her next move. Another fun thing you might have missed? Taylor Swift clapping in the reflection! WHAT?!


You’ll also notice there is a single dollar in the bathtub. The significance? Taylor Swift’s sexual assault trial where she won a single dollar against her attacker, David Mueller.

Jury Finds David Mueller Guilty of Sexual Assault and Battery Towards Taylor Swift

We are then taking to Swift’s throne where she sits as Snake Queen. After all, it is the title they have given her, isn’t it? Swift has fully taken back the insults she has been receiving and throwing them right back, proving that she can take the heat and dish it out. Just like she said in her trial “I have an uncanny ability to elicit new criticism.”


Let’s not oversee the fact the snakes are literally pouring the tea! We bet it’s piping hot! We also can’t skip over the fact that “Et Tu Brute” is inscribed in her throne and the pillars in this snake room! It translates to “and you, Brutus?”, made famous in the play Julius Caesar, where it is uttered by the Roman dictator Julius Caesar to his friend Marcus Brutus at the moment of the former’s assassination.

So what’s the meaning here? Swift has been backstabbed by people she thought she was close to and friends with. This video means so much more than just a few people the song seems to take aim at. The video largely is directed at the media and the way the general public perceives Swift and targets her. So this reference can yes be related to Kanye, Kim and even Katy. But it can also refer to the friends who have left her side and shown their true colors.

We are next taken to a car crash! Where Swift is dressed as a super famous/rich pop star. Couldn’t help but think she looks a lot like Katy Perry here, but KP doesn’t have any GRAMMYs (we went there). She’s wearing a snake dress (coincidence? we think not) and a leopard fur which reminds us of Kim K.


What could this mean? Well, let’s discuss the whole scene. First, we have a yellow car that looks similar to the one KP drove in “Waking Up In Vegas” but it’s not the same brand. (Fun fact, Joseph Kahn also directed that video). We know Swift could get her hands on the same type of car if she wanted, which also throws out the theory that she’s driving a Maserati down a dead end street (like a lyric from her song “Red.”) Some thought it was justice for her album Red not winning a GRAMMY. Again, we have to think that if she wanted that specific imagery, she would have gotten the car. So maybe, it’s a combination of both things, plus more! What do we mean?


Well, in the scene, after crashing, there is a swarm of paparazzi taking photos of the crash, no one checking to see if the Pop Star Taylor is actually alright. Very symbolic of the fact that her personal life and well being is constantly invaded, but no one seems to mind. So this scene can’t really be boiled down to just one meaning, because as with this entire video, there is a lot going on in every second, again there’s still stuff we’re still probably missing!

We also notice that after the crash, she just sort of sits there and lets them take her picture. She has been accused of setting up paparrazi (played by her tour dancers!) photos! But that’s not all, what happens next? The car blows up and Pop Star Taylor walks away unscathed from the media, with her pet leopard wearing a 13 necklace and all (yeah, she did that!).


So while everyone takes their shots (literally and figuratively) Pop Star Taylor walks away from them, ready to live her best life (out of the media’s view).

Let’s jump now to the Birdcage scene where Swift is swinging. The cage is surrounded by body guards, which is much like her life. She’s confined and the amount of space she’s in is closing in on her. It’s not very big after all, and a bird does need to spread its wings.


This is the part of the song Swift sings “I don’t like your kingdom keys / They once belonged to me / You asked me for a place to sleep / Locked me out and threw a feast.”

She then has a lobster feast, joined by a rat. Symbolic much?


As Urban dictionary says a rat is the lowest form of a human being, a backstabber. Which is also the line in the song we have been guessing makes this song so much more than about a few people, but a broader range. Swift’s attention to the smallest details is really mind blowing. Some take this line of the song to mean that Swift was on top and someone took that away from her so she’s being petty…. but no, what she’s most likely saying here is that there are people whom she was once close with, she did things for and then like the Et Tu Brute suggests, backstabbed her. So now the keys that they both shared (keys could be symbolic of actually sharing a place together or that could be too literal and it could just be a greater imagery of sharing something with someone and them taking it away and keeping it for themselves), are no longer both of theirs, but the other’s. They turned on her (locked her out) and celebrated her downfall. Some would like to think that this line is a reference to KP and how she took her dancers and the feast is a reference to KP’s song “Bon Appétit.” Although that could work, we know that Taylor Swift is a lyrical genius and mastermind and the actual meaning behind her lyrics are sometimes too complex to even figure out. That and as much as KP fans are hung up on everything she now does being shade against KP, Swift isn’t targeting her in every move. Could she be included in this generalization? Absolutely, but again, we believe this song, like the video suggests, is about so much more than just those that appear to be obvious.

Next, we see Cat mask wearing Taylor, in a vault, while the video does flashbacks, to make it easier, we will combine all of the scenes of this kind and future kinds together (so as to not jump back and forth). Why cat masks? Well, there is a robbery going on, so masks are needed right? After all, Taylor Swift is a cat lady, right?


Poor cat-lady Taylor will never find love like her sweater suggests because she is just “Blinded For Love.” Isn’t that what the media says about her? There’s even an engagement ring looking box behind crazy-cat Taylor. How many articles have we seen where just a few weeks after dating, some unnamed source is talking about how Taylor says “He’s the one.” Well played Cat lady Taylor. Guess she just dodged a bullet or lost the love of her life (“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” lyrics).

We also can’t help but notice there are a lot of 3’s appearing in this video. The bars are all in sets of 3, the fallen handcuffs off the briefcase, also look like a three. There are three watches in the bathroom scene, on the floor and later in the video even three cars that come in together. Could it be because it’s been 3 years since her last album and now she gets to share her side of things after so long?

The best part of this version of Taylor is that before leaving the vault, she is seen burning money. She was called money hungry and greedy after all, for trying to pull her music from streaming services like Spotify. The CEO asked, “Isn’t 6 million enough?” But Swift fought back against streaming services like Spotify and then Apple, for all the songwriters who needed a bigger and better compensation, because she has a voice that can make an impact.”


It gets even better, as she walks out of the vault and we see “” flashing behind her. Yes, she just robbed a streaming service. Again, Swift is making fun of all the headlines about herself. No one makes fun of Taylor Swift, like Taylor Swift makes fun of Taylor Swift!


We flash to a scene of Biker Taylor. Which reminds us of the look from one of her “Bad Blood” music video characters, and the fact there were also motor bikes in that video.

Some have been confused by this scene, thinking it could possibly be related to the lawsuit she got against Lucky 13 which is a clothing/biker company. While that could be a correlation, it could also be related to the “edgy look” articles posted about her whenever she steps out in something that isn’t a sundress. Satire at it’s greatest. Of course, again, it could also have a scene from Bad Blood Taylor, because after all, we still got some don’t we?

Next, we come across Cult Leader Taylor and her perfect Squad Army she has built. With headlines like “Taylor Swift’s Squad Had Become A Cult” and “Lorde Says Taylor Swift’s Squad Isn’t Some “Secret Cult” it makes sense!


Also, did you notice her cat on the screens? That also later change to “Squad U”? Olivia Benson deserves better!

Screen Shot 2017-08-29 at 8.01.48 PM.png

The media and regular folk have said how Taylor Swift’s “Squad” are all just these perfect models who have to do whatever she says. Once again, taking back the narrative. Here she is mocking the media, mocking her.

Later, we flash to a scene of Cult Taylor sourrounded by her Squad all laying down beside her with body parts falling off (they’re mannequins after all). We think this symbolizes how the media was pitting her friends against her and saying how the “Squad Was Falling Apart.”


Next, we step into another iconic part of the video where Sexy Taylor busts through the door and all 8 men stop whatever they are doing and jump to her beck and call. How cute is Todrick running in those heels? Could the number of men symbolize the number of high profile exes Swift has had over the last decade? Genius.


It seems pretty convincing, the moment she snaps her fingers and they all take off their coats to reveal I <3 TS Crop Tops. The irony? Swift got dragged last summer when her then boyfriend Tom Hiddleston was seen wearing an I <3 TS tank top while out at the beach (he’s gotta protect that English skin!). Guess Taylor has all these men brainwashed too!

Let’s take a moment to appreciate these dance moves. Girl has been working it out!!!


We also see Reputation Taylor cutting the wings off the plane. We think she is sending a direct message to fans and media who track her plane. The girl is just trying to live! Stop giving out her location!!

Now we come to the climax of the video. Reputation Taylor is now standing on top of all the old versions of herself. They all try to climb their way to the top, but get knocked down, because the old Taylor is dead. RIP old Taylors.

This is also the part of the song where she starts singing “I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me, I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams.” If we dig deeper we might find that every old version of Taylor is symbolic of the fact that she has changed and evolved over the years. That perhaps, maybe she was trying to be who people thought she should be, and each era she got a little more to being her true self. Either way, she is kicking the old versions of herself and her old reputations to the curb and starting new, bold and fierce with give no f*cks Taylor.

So often as we get older we look back at younger versions of ourselves and can’t help but think, ‘wow, I can’t believe I used to be that naive or this or that.’ They no longer ‘rep’resent who we are, but they are always a part of who shaped us into who we became. We have to go through all of those phases in our life, the good, the bad and the ugly to make us who we are.

We then are taken to the end of the video where we see 15 different versions of Swift. There are also 15 songs on Swift’s next album Reputation. We are pretty pumped for the Reputation album and can’t wait to analyze all of those songs and see what kind of sound she puts out!!


Here’s a post in GIF form that covers the ending of the video, in which Swift mocks herself, the way the media has mocked her. With her shocked/surprised face after she won so many awards. When Kanye referred to her as “that Bitch” in his song “Famous” which she never okayed. The fact she can’t possibly be as nice as she makes herself and clearly it’s an act. How she always plays the victim and never takes responsibility for her role in things (clearly people have never listened to “Back To December.” She then starts collecting receipts to edit later, maybe like how Kim K recorded her conversation and edited it to show it how she wanted? Receipts is also a good word since it’s the image KP used on her song “Swish Swish” and also put in the lyrics “Your game is tired / You should retire / You’re ’bout cute as / An old coupon expired / And karma’s not a liar / She keeps receipts.” Lastly, we have Fearless Era Swift in the outfit where Kanye stormed the stage during her acceptance speech, saying “I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative.” (Which Swift wrote in a notepad she posted to social media after the song’s release. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one I never asked to be a part of.” ) Then all of the other Taylor’s shout simultaneously “Shut Up!” How many times have we heard people saying that? How she just needs to stop talking about certain things, or bringing them up and playing the victim.

What was your favorite part of the video? A song that has broken nearly every record since its release! The video also broke the record for most VEVO views (previous record was 27.7 million) and most youtube views in a day with over 42 million views (previous record was 38.4 million). “Look What You Made Me Do” Is also the first song to ever have all 187 pop radio adds! It broke the mediabase records by having the entire panel! AMAZING! It broke the Spotify record, it was the fastest single to go #1 by a female artist, you name it, “Look What You Made Me Do” broke it!

Take a look at some of the headlines over scenes from the video!

There were so many other little details in the video that we just couldn’t find the room to discuss! It’s like playing where’s waldo? Can you spot all the 13s? Or the cats? There’s even one running at the end, past the line of Taylors. The Junior Jewels shirt with a lot of her friends names on it! (and no, we don’t think anyone missing means they aren’t close, as a lot of names were absent, there could have been some on the back that weren’t seen as well.” Did you see the back of the plane say TS6? (as it has been referred to for the last few years since it was expected but yet untitled!) Or the 13 that flashed near the front of the plane?  How Zombie Taylor’s arm falls off? How Shake it off Ballerina Taylor falls like she does in the music video?

WOW There’s so much more to talk about and this is just one of 15 songs. Get ready Taylornation, we’re in for a ride!
