New Taylor Swift song prompts fan frenzy

Adjust Comment Print

If you're wondering whether or not the similarities to "I'm Too Sexy" are a coincidence, look no further than iTunes, where the songwriters are listed as Taylor Swift; Fun's Jack Antonoff; and Richard Fairbrass, Fred Fairbrass and Rob Manzoli, the three members of British pop group Right Said Fred.

At one point Swift sings: "I don't like your little games / I don't like your tilted stage / The role you made me play / Of the fool / No, I don't like you". The lyrics went on to say, "No I don't like you".

The music video is set to premiere at this year's MTV VMAs on August 27 airing on MTV at 8 P.M. EST.

When Swift released a teaser of her new album "Reputation [VIDEO]" last Wednesday, she posted images of snakes all over social media.

Instagram created it after the singer's feud with the Kardashian-Wests previous year over Kanye West's song Famous.

Swift's voice message on her new song could be a reference to the audio Kardashian West leaked.

The teasers put fans on high alert, and the snake imagery evoked snake emojis used against her in various dis-fests a year ago, including one with Kim Kardashian West after West claimed Swift knew about hubby Kanye's reference to Swift in his song "Famous".

"We're very pleased to hear Taylor Swift's interpolation of our 1991 hit 'I'm Too Sexy.' Taylor and her team reached out to us about the track, we like what she does and we were very honoured to have her interpolation feature on her new single 'Look What You Made Me Do, '" the message read. After the song's release, Right Said Fred tweeted thanks to Swift and called the new song a marvelous reinvention.

Earlier this week, she tried to eclipse the eclipse's publicity by posting a short video of a snake to tease her new single (which is supposed to be amusing, because people have long associated her with a snake).

Taylor Swift's website appears to promise ticket-buying priority for fans who buy albums and merchandise.
