According to publicly-available data, Look What You Made Me Do was streamed 5.43 million times on Saturday - a drop of 2.48 million.
By now, you've probably exhausted all your Nancy Drew and Sherlock Holmes skills to death after dissecting Taylor Swift's new music video, "Look What You Made Me Do".
Check out the interesting, fashion-filled slideshow below to find out the top 15 best-dressed celebs at the 2017 VMA awards.
Taylor's "You Belong With Me" persona looks nearly identical to her 2008 video, except her t-shirt now displays the names of her closest celebrity friends. The album art for Reputation sparked various theories of hidden meanings, including that Taylor was going to address her suffocation within the media and entertainment industry - and it looks like she's done just that.
While many people believed the video earned 39 million views in 24-hours, the final total was actually 49 million views. That crown belongs to Katy Perry's "Swish Swish" for now. Radio glommed on to the track instantly, as have buyers: Industry forecasts have "Look What You Made Me Do" selling as many as a half-million downloads in its first week. Earlier this month, Swift won a $1 lawsuit in which she accused a former radio deejay of groping her.
Target and Taylor Swift have teamed up to publish two glossy print magazines curated by the mega-pop star in order to promote the November 10 release of her new album "Reputation," according to a blog post from the retailer. In the final moments, an evil version of Taylor says she's "getting receipts" for a video to edit later, before 2009 VMAs Taylor says, "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative" (reiterating the famous statement she made in response on Instagram).
If you've always wanted to be one of Taylor Swift's minions, now is the time!
Swift's favorite number is 13, and it's sprinkled throughout the "LWYMMD" video- even though, isn't that old Taylor's favorite number? That's the pseudonym she used when co-writing the song "This is What You Came For" with ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris. Her most notable fashion choices make appearances throughout the video, including at the 34-second mark, when she's seen lying in grave wearing the gown she wore to the Met Gala in 2014.
