Apparently, the 'new' Taylor Swift curses!

In her Reputation song off her latest album of same name (released yesterday November 10, 2017), the singer addresses her ruined relationship with Kanye West who infamously interrupted her acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. So what happens when Swift writes an album about a person she's still into? Five years later, Martin is still Swift's go-to guy for unignorable power-pop anthems; he and his affiliates have co-written and produced more than half of her new album reputation, including "End Game", a song that capably absorbs and regurgitates the hybridized sounds of 2017 rap and R&B, with the shuffling drums you might hear on a sad Drake song and half-rapped cadences much looser than Swift's norm. With the odds of public opinion stacked against her, Swift finds herself stuck in the unenviable position of needing a miracle of a pop record (if anything) to regain her throne. It's completely disorienting, but by the time the breathy refrain kicks in, Swift shows hints of her former glory.

"It was so nice throwing big parties / Jump into the pool from the balcony", Swift begins, remembering "feeling so Gatsby for that whole year" before she gets to the chorus, singing with a smirk in her voice, "This is why we can't have nice things, darling / Because you break them".

Saudis destroy Houthi missile near Riyadh's Khaled airport
The Saudi-led alliance said the strikes unleashed on Wednesday had hit a "legitimate military target" of rebels in the area. The US, which is one of the kingdom's most important military suppliers, has backed the coalition with logistical support.

With lyrics like "I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason" and "With three of us, honey, it's a sideshow", the song seems to reference the several months in 2016 when Swift parted ways with Calvin Harris and dated Tom Hiddleston immediately after, before eventually splitting with him too. The "ocean blue eyes" Swift sings about on Gorgeous nearly certainly belong to Alwyn, a motif that repeats onDancing With Our Hands Tied ("Deep blue, but you painted me golden") and Delicate ("Oh damn, never seen that color blue"). Swift faced backlash for being a liar over the matter, but now she is revealing her side by calling West two-faced.

In a review headlined "Taylor Swift is no longer America's sweetheart", Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt called Reputation an "oddly bifurcated creation, half obsessed with grim score settling and celebrity damage, half infatuated with a lover who takes her away from all that". "Proud to be a part of this one, check it out x". "There will be no further explanation". So it's pretty much safe to say that this might have been the peak "nice things" that she refers to in the song. She could be addressing this with the line in the song: "I'm shaking my head, I'm locking the gates". It might not be everybody's cup of tea, but she's convincingly committed to it.
