So what is is? Is it a Snake or a Dragon.

Some have speculated to be a direct reference to Swift’s personal scandals of last summer, when her heavily-publicized clashes with Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and ex Calvin Harris resulted in detractors bombarding her social media accounts with the snake emoji – a response insinuating that Swift is ruthless and untrustworthy.

Others have suggested that the creature in the video isn’t so much a snake but a dragon or a lizard. The pop culture science website Inverse consulted six (!) different herpetologists for their analysis of what the video actually depicts, with all coming to the conclusion that it probably isn’t a snake.

“That is not a snake, nor other reptile,” Joseph Mendelson, Ph.D., director of research at Zoo Atlanta, told the site. “It actually changes the length of its body, which is what worms or octopus tentacles do. Snakes, even the couple of really odd ones out there, can’t technically accomplish this.” 

Others have suggested Swift may be planning a dragon-from-the-ashes video, something involving an octopus, or may just be a huge Game of Thrones fan. These suggestions makes sense, but they also aren’t half as much fun to speculate about.

As for new music, Us Magazine is reporting :

“Taylor Swift is releasing the first single from her upcoming sixth album on Friday, August 25, multiple sources exclusively tell Us Weekly.

“The song is poppy,” one insider tells Us, adding that the music video will also premiere later this week. Swift’s new album isn’t too far away either. “She’s being very secretive about it, but it’s going to be a really good one,” a second source adds.”
