Taylor Swift Just Released the Tracklist for “Lover” and Fans Have Thoughts

Published

We are days away from a brand-new Taylor Swift album (with a whopping 18 songs, no less) and, naturally, the singer has been blessing fans with surprises left and right. Following the release of her title track “Lover” on Friday, August 16, Taylor gave Swifties yet another gift: the full tracklist to her forthcoming seventh studio album.

Naturally, fans didn’t miss a beat before diving into the titles, ready to dissect every word, syllable, letter — you get the idea. Given Taylor’s affinity for easter eggs, it usually stands to reason that there’s hidden messaging in almost everything the artist does, and eagle-eyed Swifties are always up for a clue-hunting challenge.

As far as Lover goes, there are a few things we already know about the album, which puts Swifties at an advantage when it comes to gathering new information. With the title track clearly hinting at Taylor’s beau Joe Alwyn, it seems as though romance will be a common thread throughout the album. Taylor herself even told Vogue that her seventh album is “a love letter to love, in all of its maddening, passionate, exciting, enchanting, horrific, tragic, wonderful glory.” Now that the tracklist is out in the world, fans are developing even more concrete ideas of what to expect from Lover once it drops on August 23.

One fan declared “I Forgot That You Existed” as their new stan song, while another decided that the first track, along with “Death By A Thousand Cuts” and “Cruel Summer” will be Taylor’s newfound “holy trinity.”

Taylor’s tracklist was written in an all-caps font comprised of tiny white dots in front of colorful, puffy clouds. Not gonna lie, it isn’t the easiest thing in the world to read. “Please donate money for Taylor swift so she can buy a new font,” one person joked on Twitter, with another replying to the singer and asking “What is this font, girl?!” (TBH I’ll ruin my vision for Taylor, it’s my sworn duty as a Swiftie, anything for clues.)

And fans who attended Taylor’s Secret Sessions can (understandably) barely hold it together.

Some lucky Swifties have already heard Lover in its entirety, thanks to Taylor’s traditional private listening parties that she hosts with every album release. While those fans have been sworn to secrecy regarding the details of the songs, it seems as though some are reacting to the newly released tracklist, offering other fans a glimpse as to what we can all expect.

“Please be careful when you are listening to ‘Paper Rings,’ it makes you vulnerable,” one fan warned, while also teasing that “Death By a Thousand Cuts” is a “big, fat bop.” According to another Swiftie, “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince” features a super-intense bridge and tons of metaphors, and “Cruel Summer” is like “if ‘Out of the Woods’ and ‘Getaway Car’ had a brain child.” OK, I’m gonna need a second here; not sure my heart can handle any of this!

Bebe Rexha criticises sexist music producer who said she is ‘too old to be sexy’

Bebe Rexha has shared an empowering message about ageism in the music industry after being called “too old” by a sexist executive. 

On Monday, the 29-year-old singer shared a black-and-white photograph of herself posing in her underwear on Instagram.

In the caption, Rexha revealed that she had recently been told by a male music executive that she was “too old to be sexy”.

“I recently had a MALE music executive tell me that I was getting ‘too old’ and that my brand was ‘confusing’,” Rexha wrote. 

“Because…I’m a songwriter and I post sexy pics on my Instagram and that’s not what female songwriters are suppose [sic] to do, especially for my age. I’m 29.”

The “Meant to Be” singer explained that she is “fed up with being put in a box” and tired of stereotypes that maintain older women shouldn’t be deemed attractive. 

Rexha then stated that as her 30th birthday approaches later this month, she will no longer be “running away” from such outdated cliché’s. 

“I’m not gonna lie about my age or sing songs that I feel will sell better because they sound ‘younger’,” Rexha added.

“I’m gonna celebrate my age because you know what, I’m wiser, I’m stronger and TRUST ME I’m a much better lover than I was 10 years ago.”

Several of Rexha’s celebrity friends commented on the post with messages of support, including fellow singer Rita Ora, who wrote: “My sexy songwriting [crown emoji] You are beautiful, getting sexier with age and your talent SINGS for itself. Keep making those rules.“

Mike Posner Pauses Walk Across America After Getting Bit by a Rattlesnake

Published

On Thursday, the 31-year-old singer-songwriter shared a video of himself strapped to gurney while surrounded by medical personnel. Posner explained the situation in the Instagram caption, claiming he was airlifted to a Colorado hospital after he had sustained a rattlesnake bite.

“I had just crushed 16 miles and was going for eight more when I got bit by a baby rattlesnake!” he wrote. “That venom is no joke! I got to the hospital and got the anti-venom in time […] I’ll be here a few days and will not be able to walk for several weeks but enjoying the AC and the nice bed, haven’t had those in a while Hahahaha! Can’t wait to get back on The Walk! KEEP GOING!!!!!!”

Posner shared an update via Twitter on Saturday, informing fans he was recovering much faster than expected. The artist shared a clip of him back on his feet, taking small steps with the help of a walker. He also made sure to show love to the hospital staff and his “whole family in the ICU.”

Here’s hoping Posner makes a full and speedy recovery.

The “Cooler Than Me” singer kicked off his cross-country trek on April 15 in New Jersey with the plan to reach Venice Beach, California, sometime in the fall. Posner told Billboard he decided to embark on the journey following the death of his father and good friend Avicii.

“I feel everyone has a list of things they’d like to do in life and then a list of things they have to do,” Posner explained. “After (the deaths) I realized I couldn’t wait to do these things I had to do on that list. I’d been putting (the walk) off for years and years and years. The time is now.”

Posner said he hoped the trek would help his creativity as well as teach him lifelong lessons and skills.

“I’d like to fall in love with the present moment and not worry so much about how far I am from the goal,” he explains. “The first 30 years of my life, I’ve set a goal out in front of me and worked like hell to get it. I always felt like something is wrong until I get there. On this walk…I have to figure out how to be in love with where I am right now. That would be good and be a skill that would benefit my life ahead.”
