Taylor Swift opened the 2019 VMAs with a performance of her single “You Need To Calm Down” — in which she famously, finally, Said Gay Rights. She picked up the Video For Good award for the clip, peppered with celebrities and icons of queer pop culture, but allowed her co-executive producer and BFF Todrick Hall to give that acceptance speech.
When she won the fan-voted Video Of The Year, however, she took the mic and proceeded to back up the video’s message, surrounded again by Hall as well as other members of the YNTCD cast such as Trinity the Tuck and Jade Jolie.

Squad, Taylor Swift’s reputation has landed, and it was never going to be without a few swipes.

Taylor Swift has been sorted into Slytherin, and she’s bringing a new banger to their house parties.
If the snake videos weren’t enough of a clue, Taylor’s enemies have driven her to a poisonous place — or so she’d have us believe. “Bad Blood” will go down as a bratty tiff compared to “Look What You Made Me Do,” a message from the all-new Taylor Swift, a first offering from Reputation that’s dripping with lethal venom.

RIP sunny, lovelorn Taylor. Long live dark, vengeful Taylor. Read more…
