Taylor Swift has been fast and furious with her new music, dropping two new tracks within a week and it's given us hardly any time to breathe.
Swift dropped the first single off upcoming album Reputation, Look What You Made Me Do, two weeks ago and super fans have been analysing every second of it ever since.
But what we've only just discovered, is the true meaning behind her line, “I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, because she’s dead.”
Original assumptions were that the line just means that Taylor is a whole new person and the old her is gone. BUT it appears really to be another dig at her haters.
The latest theory is that the quote is a reference to the the Swift vs Kanye/Kim feud in 2016.
The hashtags begun after Kim "outed" Taylor with the footage of her agreeing to Kanye's "Famous" lyrics and the Internet exploded with references to Swift’s professional death.
Remember the below mural?
The theory is that this lyric of her being "dead" is a way of clapping back at those who thought she was done last year.
Taylor herself even liked a Tumblr post speaking about this theory, so that could be a hint that we've worked out the real meaning behind the lyric.
