The wait for Taylor Swift’s Reputation is taking forever, but with one week to go, the singer has dropped yet another new song to help us pass the time. On Friday, Taylor released “Call It What You Want,” a super sweet love song that fans suspect might be about her current low-key relationship with Joe Alwyn. But it’s not only hints about her boyfriend she’s dropping — there’s also a good chance that Taylor Swift’s new song also includes tons of references to her feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year and a half, chances are you already know that that Taylor and Kimye don’t exactly get along. Last year, Taylor insisted that she didn’t approve the lyrics to Kanye’s song, “Famous,” (where he takes credit for her fame and calls her a “bitch”) until, of course, Kim posted the audio of a call between Tay and ‘ye where she seemed totally okay with the song… and everything went downhill from there. Taylor was called a snake by basically the entire internet, and a year later, the Reputation era was born.

And as if her references to Kimye in “Look What You Made Me Do” weren’t enough, she’s coming at them again in “Call It What You Want.”



In the beginning of the song, Taylor sings about her castle crumbling overnight (aka when she was exposed by Kim?) and that she “brought a knife to a gun fight,” which could reference her very public “Famous” feud. And then she sings, “All the liars are calling me one / Nobody’s heard from me in months,” talking about how she pretty much dropped off the face of the earth after the whole ordeal.

Later, she adds, “All the drama queens taking swings / All the jokers dressing up as kings.” Ouch. Do you need some ice for that burn, Kim and Kanye?

The good news: The rest of the song is actually about her totally perfect romance with Joe, so it seems like this fight actually allowed her the downtime she needed to fall in love. How sweet is that?

Hopefully, when Reputation hits stores on November 10, we’ll get plenty more details about what might have happened behind the scenes of the Kimye feud… cause let’s face it, we’re living for it. We also wouldn’t be opposed to more info on her relationship with Joe. If Taylor Swift is going to go radio silent on social media, we’re gonna need the dirt somehow!
