Taylor Swift is THE MAN in her new music video and all we can say is that there are so.
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!...
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.
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...
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!!!
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.
And what did you think about the subtle digs at Kanye and Scooter?
