Yeah this song is fine and would probably be elevated in the context of an album like Red or 1989. We'll see how it fits into this album. I really hate the feud concept and this whole persona, though. It just feels like a misfire in every way, and the much better way to make the point she's trying to make would've been to ignore her reputation completely and just put out a great record of sophisticated pop with quality lyrics and musical variety. Given the stylistic transition over her career, I'd much rather her (and think she'd ultimately be more successful long term) just keep creating what she's feeling musically, ignoring modern trends and just pushing in whichever direction her creativity leads her rather than falling into the adult/urban/more aggressive pop mode she seems to be falling into.

If this happened she would be heavily criticized as it falls into her image of avoiding topics like politics in order to broaden her appeal.

Like if she ignored the feuds and just made straight up sophisticated pop as you put it she would just be trashed as continuing to be fake, a snake, etc.

But I agree with you, long term it would work out for her because the music would have a more lasting impact than this Kanye/Kim/Katy feud. Now she's gone and made an entire album dedicated to that, thereby solidifying the reputation she never wanted.

That's the thing though. She's gonna be trashed regardless. This just plays into her image of being petty. She's not subverting her image like she did on "Blank Space", she's playing right into it. I guess you could argue the end of the LWYMMD video is subverting it a little, but that doesn't seem to be the overall tone of the record. And very few pop artists address politics in their music. No one really expects her to do that.

So yeah, I agree w/ your last point. I think she'd fare better overall if she pulled herself out of this nonsense.

"blank space" feels like a masterclass compared to some of this stuff imo

i'm on team these songs are bad but that being said it really is impressive how much cache she has culturally. i've heard this song upwards of 10 times today already without trying.

gorgeous is the best track so far, I do enjoy it with some alcohol in my mind. I only listen to tay when I'm drunk anyway, my playlist then usually is tay, rihanna, black metal, tay, rihanna, doom metal etc.

2 weeks until this thing comes out hey.
i'm happy that the campaign has toned down a bit, or maybe i've just paid less attention recently.
i was fatigued when "lwymmd" released at the prospect of that kind of media saturation continuing through 10 Nov.
