See Their Posts: Celebrities React to Taylor Swift's 'Reputation

Eventually, they officially reconciled at the 2015 VMAs, when Taylor presented 'Ye with his Video Vanguard Award and Kanye sent her flowers after the fact, which Swift shared on Instagram.

Taylor kicks off with a first line "it was so nice throwing big parties/jump in the pool from the balcony" and even goes on to note that she was "feeling so Gatsby for that whole year". So what happens when Swift writes an album about a person she's still into? Returning her music to streaming services on the same day that long-time rival Katy Perry's Witness album dropped and releasing her own album on the anniversary of Kanye West's mother's death left a sour taste in many people's mouths - and all of that was before she avoided an easy opportunity to publicly denounce white supremacists. Ensuing highlights include the auto-tuned electro-pop of "Delicate", the sickly sweet bubbling beat backing a tale of forbidden love on "Gorgeous" and the most 1989-ish track on the record, "Getaway Car".

She reveals juicy details about her infamous celebrity feuds, drops truth bombs about her ex-lovers, and gives an intimate look at her new romance with Joe Alwyn.

On This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things, she sings, "Friends don't try to trick you / Get you on the phone and mind-twist you / And so I took an axe to a mended fence". AKA you can't listen to the full album on demand, but you can listen to a radio station that plays Swift's back catalogue with songs from the new album sprinkled in.

Then, it's West's turn.

With lyrics like "I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason" and "With three of us, honey, it's a sideshow", the song seems to reference the several months in 2016 when Swift parted ways with Calvin Harris and dated Tom Hiddleston immediately after, before eventually splitting with him too. On Reputation, the Taylor she's chosen to show us is one that's more confident than ever. To follow the song's metaphor, Hiddleston is the getaway vehicle driver who whisks Swift away from another man ("Well he was running after us / I was screaming 'Go go go!'").

I never would have asked for a song with Swift, Future, and Ed Sheeran, but now that I have it, I can't get enough.

In the end, she leaves him too, escaping with the fortune and singing, "I put the money in a bag and stole the keys / That was the last time you ever saw me".
