Taylor Swift taking aim at Kanye's 'tilted stage' on new song?

"Look What You Made Me Do" is the first piece of new music from Taylor since she collaborated with Zayn Malik for the track "I Don't Wanna Live Forever", which was featured in the 2016 movie "Fifty Shades Darker".

Despite the Taylor vs. Kimye drama, some fans believe the lyric 'Locked me out and threw a feast (what?)' is a reference to another longtime feud with frenemy Katy Perry. The "Shake It Off" songstress then teased the coming of a new album when she posted videos of snakes, alluding to what she was publicly labeled following Kardashian's Snapchat reveal past year. "'Cause she's dead." More than a little on the nose, but at least there's no ambiguity there. The lyrics went on to say, "No I don't like you".

After three years of waiting, Taylor Swift has finally dropped a new single "Look What You Made Me Do" and hopefully it'll soften the blow of waiting until November 10 for the full album.

Although T.Swift's upcoming performances won't be until 2018, there are already steps you can take to ensure that you can buy tickets to see her shows.

Swifties immediately began posting snakes in Kim's comments after clips of the reptiles appeared in Taylor Swift's social media teaser videos.

West took to Twitter to set the record straight, writing, "I called Taylor and had an hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny".

And, of course, there's the timing of the single's release, in time for the weekend's MTV Video Music Awards, where in 2009 West famously crashed Swift's acceptance speech at Radio City Music Hall to declare that Beyonce's video was more deserving, the interruption that started the beef in the first place.

Next in the song, Swift sings, "I don't like your ideal crime".

After TMZ reported that Swift approved the lyrics, one of her representatives released a statement denying that she'd given her blessing.

"I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now/ Why? Oh". "And then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure / Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours".

The Washington Post interpreted the rhythm of the song as something that came from the beat of a 1991 hit song "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred.

In the lead up to new single "Look What You Made Me Do" - released today (Aug 25) - Swift teased the track with a series of mute snake animations. Is the enemy she's referring to Kanye West?
