We know what Taylor Swift is into these days: 1989, polaroids, shaking things off. Good for Taylor! Also good for Taylor: Another Rolling Stone cover, this one touting "The Reinvention of Taylor Swift." So what's she reinventing? The Wire investigates:
Reinvention No. 1: She's going full pop.
Okay, this one was obvious — she said so herself when she announced her next album. But Taylor, who Rolling Stone calls out as a "fan of ready-made metaphors," harkens the change to chasing rabbits: a Pop Rabbit and a Country Rabbit. "At a certain point," she tells the magazine, "if you chase two rabbits, you lose them both." What, it wasn't one conjoined Pop/Country Rabbit in Red?
Reinvention No. 2: She's no longer sexting.
As Rolling Stone put it:
Swift hasn't been involved with a man in quite some time. She's not dating. She's not canoodling. She's not even sexting. Taylor Swift is single and loving it.
Taylor's turned over a new leaf. Canoodling? Pfft. She's "painting more." Sexting? Nah. She's "been working out a lot." Not dating is treating her well: She's tapping into her artsy side, she's not looking at her phone so much, and she's going to the gym an awful lot and coming out looking like this. Who would feel sorry for Taylor? Do you feel sorry for Taylor? I only ask because she thinks you'll feel sorry:
She hasn't dated since breaking up with Styles. 'Like, have not gone on a date... People are going to feel sorry for me when you write that. But it's true.'
Reinvention No. 3: She's set aside a guest room just for Karlie Kloss, her new best friend.
