Taylor Swift Just Took Control of That Snake Emoji
UPDATE (10/22): There is ANOTHER snake video — what does it mean?!
Taylor Swift's continuing to hint that her sixth studio album is just around the corner, and this LP is equipped with venom.
Swift, who blacked out her social media accounts just days ago, updated her Twitter earlier today (August 21) with a single, menacing upload — a 10 second clip of what appears to be a snake slithering around a darkened set. And just like that, a certain narrative is back under her control.
Fans of celeb gossip will likely connect the snake to Swift's 2016 (brief) feud with Kim Kardashian. Around the time Kardashian exposed Swift for having known that Kanye West would mention her in "Famous" (Swift feigned horror and incredulity upon the song's release), Kardashian began alluding to Swift with snake emojis. From then on, the image became a rallying symbol for anti-Swifters far and wide.
And fans of Swift's saw the move as brilliant.
"ITS A SNAKE SHE ISNT COMING TO PLAY SHES PLAYING EVERYONE WHO PLAYED HER BACK," one noted, while another wrote "I LOVE OUR SHADY QUEEN."
