Outside the words, Swift teased "LWYMMD" with snake imagery, her way of weaponizing the #TaylorSwiftIsASnake hashtag that became popular after the singer-songwriter claimed credit for Calvin Harris' hit "This Is What You Came For," and then, in an unrelated turn of events, got into a public spat with Kanye and Kim Kardashian West for denying approval of the rapper's infamous lyrics in "Famous."
"You cannot 'approve' a song you haven't heard," Swift said at the time. "Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009."
The Kanye drama started that year after he stormed the stage at the VMAs and interrupted Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video. By picking the VMAs as the venue for her music vid premiere, Swift has winked at her history with the award show and poured salt in the wounds of her other rival, this year's host, Katy Perry.
Recently, that feud -- which will hopefully be turned into a season of TV on FX when Ryan Murphy has a chance -- has seen Perry drop the music video for "Swish Swish," only to be one-upped by Swift's surprise album-release announcement and record-breaking single drop.
