Can anyone confirm whether "overdramatic" was Taylor Swift's alternate title for this album?
"On Nov. 12, 2017, just one day after Swift released her highly-anticipated album Reputation, the pop star hit the SNL stage to perform two songs from her album: "... A cellist and four vocalists back Swift for the track, which is rumored to reference ex-boyfriends and her feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian; keeping with the theme of the song, for the SNL performance, the singer wore a shirt with a picture of a snake on it.
USA Today's Maeve McDermott said the album was a "fully formed look at a singer in love, and in control", while Jon Caramanica at the New York Times called it "bombastic, unexpected and sneakily potent".
Drama aside, "reputation" is an entertaining album packing another crop of the catchy songs fans have come to expect from 2016's highest-paid artist.
This newscaster's reputation certainly won't suffer after getting approval from Taylor Swift herself. Entries like "Don't Blame Me" and "Call It What You Want" are familiar, while "Delicate" and "Dancing With Our Hands Tied" offerings provide a new sound for the singer and songwriter. The release of Reputation this week is just further proof of that, and now we're all going to ride the wave of her latest success whether we want to or not.
For those who were anxious that the entire performance would be all about the Reputation era, the fans are also relived to know that Taylor brought part of her old self to the stage too.
So do we, Taylor.
