I’ve spent a lot of today musing over how Taylor liked a particular theory on here suggesting that each of the 15 Taylors at the end lineup of the LWYMMD music video represents each of the 15 tracks on the record. Could there really be some truth to this? I took a closer look.
The sixth Taylor in the lineup is “receipts Taylor”. Her entire dialogue in the end scene is very uncharacteristically Taylor, exclaiming “Getting receipts! Gonna edit this later, ha!” as she uses a camera phone to film a younger, more naive Taylor sobbing.
Throwback to 2016 when Kim Kardashian-West used a camera phone to film the infamous “Famous” conversation between Taylor and Kanye West, and uploaded her version, a manipulated footage, to the internet with the descriptor “Receipts”. This event along with the theme of betrayal floods very heavily throughout LWYMMD - the sixth track on Reputation - meaning thus far, this theory rings true.
Rewind to several days before the announcement of Reputation when celebrity blogger Perez Hilton began tweeting that he’d listened a track from Reputation that was incredibly long for a song and very different, describing it as non-single material. During the final hour of reconstruction on taylorswift.com, an alleged tracklist for Reputation was accidentally posted for a moment. This promptly forced the announcement to go into overdrive and Taylor immediately dropped the news on her Instagram as to not have the surprise spoiled - this was probably the reason for the new single being announced as “tomorrow night” on the Wednesday, even though it wasn’t being released until the Friday. Regardless, the content of the track list (or lack of) is the most interesting.
All titles were blanked out, but the length of track 4 clocked in at a whopping 8:47.
The fourth Taylor in the end scene line up in ring master Taylor from the Red tour, and she’s the only Red era representation to have made it to the very end…
What if track 4 is the (nearly) 10 minute version of All Too Well?
Apparently the Thirteenth Doctor is going to be revealed on Sunday. Frankly I’m less worried about who’s been cast and more fearful for the inescapable chaos that will inevitably erupt in the fandom no matter who it is.
I mean, the majority of his tweets are about the band? He tweeted after the brits, for Niall's single, the band's anniversary... All his friends and family went hard during the brits with the #. What do people want?
harry is truly the level of chill i wanna be. he just dropped a single, did some promo, announced the album release, and now is straight chilling. just going to the gym. wearing tall white socks. drinking water. hashtag goals
No but really, are they doing it this transparent on purpose?? Like he announces his single and suddenly Nasty gets her personal pap pics, she makes sure to show she stayed in London cause she doesn’t want anything to do with this kid, Louis spends 6 months without even staying in LA for more than 3 weeks but suddenly he is back being papped with this kid out of the blue and now back on his IG which since it has to be all about promotion for his single needs to include this poor kid according to the genius mind of his team and of course this picture come the 1st of the month, and exactly 3 weeks after the last time they were papped……like…its so obvious they are showing to fans that louis only uses this kid when he has to promote himself they dont even care to show he is a real father anymore, they only want you to think this is the kind of person he is and i truly cannot understand WHY they think all this is helping to sell or is the right way to promote their artist. It’s so sad and heartbreaking that they dont have nothing better to do with him when they saw the reaction to the interview and how people would love him just for himself and his music.
I am honestly cracking up that today’s big news in the fandom is that Taylor is not dead and is in fact breathing. Like we are 100% satisfied and joyful about this. Forget a new single or album announcement. Taylor is alive, which is apparently the best news we’ve received in a while.
Louis Tomlinson and Steve Aoki both took sharp left turns with their music when the pair joined forces to create the empowering hit “Just Hold On.” For Tomlinson, he shed the folkier, classic-rock-leaning sounds of his boy band One Direction, while for EDM god Aoki, the track represented a move toward the pop mainstream.

“I was on holiday with my friends in Vegas, and we were meant to see Calvin Harris’ show,” Tomlinson recalled in an interview with Rolling Stone about what led to his first experience seeing Aoki live. Harris had to cancel that night, but luckily for the venue and the singer, Aoki was in town and able to fill in for him. “[My friends and I] had an incredible night. It was really, really fun. The show was amazing.”
After connecting personally, the two hopped in the studio to craft what would be Tomlinson’s first solo single following the announcement that One Direction would go on hiatus. “I didn’t want to make an EDM record with an EDM arrangement,” Aoki explained. His composition and Tomlinson’s lyrics were created from scratch, as the pair sought to launch their process with a “blank slate.”
“It was really about the lyrics, how to make the lyrics stand out musically on my part,” Aoki continues. “When we started out, it was really more of sad, slow song. We needed it more uplifting. We needed to speed it up. We needed more energy to the song.”
In the end, the pair produced an anthemic, festival- or arena-ready tune appropriate for their respective touring histories. “It’s the most human song I’ve produced,” Aoki says.
After making the television rounds, including the track’s X-Factor debut in December and a recent appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the pair plan on hitting Ultra Music Festival, old stomping grounds for Aoki that will be a new setting for Tomlinson.
Each artist had been exposed to the other’s music before they met. Aoki remembered seeing One Direction on television and being impressed, but the song that stuck with him remains “Story of My Life,” a track he had mentioned in interviews years ago. Tomlinson had received an early remix of My Chemical Romance’s “The Black Parade” from Aoki, a track that spoke to his formative influences. “I grew up listening to that sound anyway,” he explained of his emo and pop-punk roots. “I grew up loving Green Day. That definitely resonated with me.”
As for the question of trading places, neither thinks they could do the other’s job. “I don’t have the the skills to be a DJ,” Tomlinson says. “I’ve also not got the hair.” In a boy band, Aoki would rather be the back-up dancer or hypeman instead of a singer. “Count me in for the yelling.”

Maybe I find weirdness in everything now but the ig thing was hours ago. It's not even 6am rn in London and she decides to engage fans again? And of course it's another larrie? Idk I just don't get it. And all of this the day his brother announces a single. Feels like they are pushing a non Larry message on this day... I just don't see the point of her engaging the fans once again, putting more attention on the subject again, hours after happening. I don't get it
It’s kinda funny timing, but who knows what anything means. Gemma goes off on Larries at least once a year, so I’m not surprised by this at all. I just find it funny because while I’m the first to tell you that some Twitter and Instagram Larries are annoying as fuck, Larries as a general group (which includes a lot of people who don’t do the really annoying stuff) are also the ones who tend to get the most accomplished in this fandom - we tend to be leading projects for the boys, we tend to be leading charity efforts for the boys, and so on. So I always find it quite entertaining that we’re continually trashed as an entire group in really rude and abelist ways every time somebody decides to be a dick on social media.
