A List of Subliminals and References from Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” Video

BY TER STAFF

Taylor Swift has the internet and fans going crazy with the release of her new music video, for her Reputation single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’. Full of references to her old looks and videos and subliminals towards some of her most famous foes and ex-boyfriends (Kanye West, Katy Perry, Tom Hiddleston), there is almost too much to keep track of.

Check out our (growing) list of subliminals and references from Taylor Swift’s new ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ video below.

“I Would Very Much Like To Be Excluded From This Narrative”

In the outro to the music video, as all the various forms of Taylor Swift stand side by side, Taylor Swift shows a little humility and humor by referencing her feud with Kanye West. Holding her “Best Female Video” VMA, the version of Swift that was interrupted by Kanye tells the other Taylors that she would “very much like to be excluded from this narrative.”

This quote wasn’t from the VMAs, rather it was from an Instagram post that Taylor sent to fans to address the bad press the singer was receiving after Kim Kardashian leaked a recording of a phone call between Taylor and Kanye, where Taylor gave the green light to the lyrics from Kanye’s track ‘Famous’. Although Taylor claimed she wants to move on from the drama, her Kanye references in her new single and its video are clear.

I Love TS

Near the three-minute mark of the music video, Taylor’s backup dancers are rocking some “I Heart TS” shirts. Although his wasn’t a black glittery crop top, Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston, was caught by photographers on the beach rocking an “I Heart TS” tank-top of his own. This isn’t much of a shot towards Hiddleston, but its definitely a cute little Easter Egg.

Cat Burglars

Around a minute and a half into the video, Taylor Swift leads a team of “cat burglars” rocking cat masks. Many fans believe that this is taking aim at Katy Perry’s ‘Dark Horse’ music video, where her back-up dancers are rocking Egyptian cat masks. The masks aren’t a direct rip-off by any means, but we wouldn’t be surprised if this indeed is a reference to Perry.

Famous?

There may be multiple reference to Kanye West in Taylor’s new visuals. About 2-minutes into the video, Taylor Swift lays near a pile of unconscious life-like mannequin/robots. This one may be a stretch, but this may reference Kanye West’s music video for ‘Famous’, where Kanye displayed a number of life-life naked and sleeping wax figures, one of which portrayed Swift, which she was famously unhappy about.

Snakes, Snakes and More Snakes

“Taylor Swift is a snake” has become a popular meme on the internet, especially from the perspective of many Kanye West and Calvin Harris fans, and generally from the point-of-view of any Taylor haters. With her reputation under fire, Taylor Swift has embraced this persona in her new video with snakes being pictured throughout.

Music Video References/Zombie Taylor

The new video doesn’t just take aim at Taylor’s foes, rather it also pays homage to Swift’s catalog of music videos. Sharing characters and outfits from her ‘Out Of The Woods’ video (for the Zombie scenes), ‘You Belong With Me’ video and many more, the ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ takes inspiration from Swift’s past and puts it all into one amazing video.

Katy Hair and Grammy Shade

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift share a lot, including a lot of bad blood for each other, one thing that they don’t share however is a Grammy because despite 13 nominations, Katy Perry has yet to win a Grammy. Swift made sure to remind us all of that when in her new video, she is rocking a haircut and style very similar to Katy Perry, and what is she holding? One of her Grammy awards. Cold!
