TAY­LOR SWIFT – REP­U­TA­TION

DNA Magazine - - MUSIC REVIEWS / BY MARC ANDREWS -

Though Swiftie has a well-de­served rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing a se­rial star-fucker, she also has a solid rep­u­ta­tion for writ­ing mem­o­rable pop songs that cut through the ra­dio clut­ter. While 2014’s 1989 saw her scare off any other pre­tenders to the new Queen Of Pop ti­tle (Katy Perry, swish swish in­deed!), Rep­u­ta­tion sees Tay­lor boldly declar­ing her old self is dead. Gosh. Good­bye sweet coun­try lul­la­bies and hello video ex­trav­a­gan­zas like Look What You Made Me Do, which even Gaga might con­sider OTT. Yup. There’s also an aw­ful lot of bitch­i­ness in the lyrics (“I got a boyfriend and he’s older than us!”) If any­thing, Tayles might earn a new rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing a shady lady.
