  • Taylor Swift is THE MAN in her new music video and all we can say is that there are so.

  • many.

  • easter.

  • eggs.

  • She completely shaded Kanye West, Scooter Braun, Leo Dicaprio and patriarchy as a whole

  • in this music video and we can't wait to break it all down for you.

  • What's up you guys?

  • It's Sussan Mourad here with Clevver News and Taylor's album Lover may have come out

  • last August but she is nowhere near done with pumping out Lover related projects for fans

  • to get excited about.

  • And just this morning Tay dropped the official music video for her anthem "The Man," which

  • she starred in and directed.

  • The song, which is Taylor's latest single off of Lover, addresses the double standards

  • between men and women.

  • And we all know that the lyrics call out the way she's treated in the media versus the

  • way famous men are treated.

  • And to say this music video embodies that exact sentiment, would be an understatement.

  • In the video Taylor AKA The Man does things like man-spreading on the subway, acting rude

  • without any consequences, urinating in public, and being labeled the "world's greatest dad"

  • after doing regular parental duties.

  • And in case you didn't recognize Talyor in the video at first glance, don't worry

  • you're not alone.

  • She underwent a MAJOR makeover to star as the leading man in the music video and her

  • transformation is no joke.

  • Did you guys know this was Taylor at first?

  • And what did you think of this look?

  • Some fans couldn't contain their excitement and we totally get it!...

  • I mean this one fan said quote, “WHY THE HELL AM I ATTRACTED TO TAYLOR IN THE MAN MUSIC

  • VIDEO THIS IS SO FUCKING HOT MU PUTBH

  • And another said quote, “HOW TF DOES TAYLOR LOOKS SO HOT AS A MAN?!!

  • SHE RLY IS *THE MAN* #TheManMusicVideo

  • I really want to know what you all think about Taylor's transformation!

  • So get the conversation started down in the comments below.

  • But amid all the man-spreading, hot models, and crazy makeup, Taylor obviously snuck in

  • some serious Easter eggs.

  • I mean, after all, it is Taylor Swift, what do you expect?!

  • Most notably, she took major digs at Kanye West and Scooter Braun, referencing her ongoing

  • feuds with both of them.

  • Let's start with Kanye.

  • At multiple points throughout the video, Taylor runs through a hallway that may look oddly

  • familiar to you.

  • Why?

  • Oh well, because it's just as creepy and empty as the one in Kim Kardashian and Kanye

  • West's house.

  • Fans obviously took notice and pointed this out on Twitter putting the two hallways side

  • by side.

  • But that wasn't the only Kanye reference.

  • Other fans suggested the scene where The Man leaves the sleeping woman in bed after sleeping

  • together is a reference to Kanye's "Famous" video.

  • And one fan had a lot to say about this scene.

  • They wrote quote, “The light on the wall mimics a solar eclipse.

  • When the man stands, he casts a shadow over her, completely blocking her from sunlight.

  • The woman is eclipsed by the man, even at her most vulnerable: n*ked & in bed.

  • Not to mention the Famous video implications...

  • #TheManMusicVideo

  • And let us know if you saw any other Kanye references down in the the comments below.

  • Now let's move on to Scooter Braun.

  • In the scene when Taylor pees in public, there are signs along the wall along with all of

  • her album titles.

  • And of course, it's 13th Street Station.

  • But let's talk about the signs.

  • One says "Missing.

  • If found return to Taylor Swift" and another one is a picture of a scooter crossed out.

  • And obviously fans had a lot to say about this sign.

  • One person said, “Scooter Braun shade spotted in Taylor Swift's new "The Man" music video

  • Another said quote, “Thread of how Taylor Swift standing up to Scooter Braun in The

  • Man Music Video wasn't out of pettiness, more so a statement on how artists (especially

  • female artists) are mistreated, disrespected and discredited in the music industry.”

  • And another wrote quote, “The Man music video is so iconic, I don't even have words.

  • The no scooter sign literally made me throw my phone though that shit was FUNNY!!!

  • #TheManMusicVideo

  • Ok now onto Taylor's album names graffitied on the walls.

  • Fans couldn't help but notice that the word "karma" is written in huge letters amongst

  • her album title names.

  • Of course, karma could just refer to Taylor's belief that everyone will get what's coming

  • to them eventually, she's been very open about that in past interviews

  • But because of it's placement with her other albums, some fans are convinced it's going

  • to be the title of her next album.

  • One fan wrote quote, “Watch @taylorswift13 re-record her debut album and call it Karma.

  • all I think about is KARMA.

  • And then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure.

  • Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours.”

  • Another wrote quote, “"Karma" is the title of Taylor Swift's next album.

  • Reputation 2.0 here we go

  • One person said quote, “Waittttt but so is #Karma an Easter egg for an album title

  • #TheMan #TheManMusicVideo @taylornation13 @taylorswift13”

  • But now I want to turn it over to you because I really want to know your take on everything

  • we just unpacked!

  • What other Easter eggs did you catch in The Man music video?

  • Did you catch the Tik Tokkers and Taylor's dad's cameos in the video?

  • Obviously we couldn't talk about every single part, but I'd love to hear how you put your

  • detective skills to use.
