Taylor Swift’s long-awaited album ‘Reputation’ dropped at midnight on November 10, and her fans seem to be freaking out. Waiting in the wings to decode the hidden meaning of the tracks, the song ‘Dress’ caught the attention of several Netizens. With sensuous lyrics such as, “Only bought this dress so you could take it off,” people have deemed the singer as the ‘good girl gone bad’ and they simply can’t keep calm. While some suggested it is about her beau Joe Alwyn, there are strong speculations that it could also be about Ed Sheeran.
It’s been three long years since her fans got to hear her last album, and as expected, their excitement is through the roof! With the other music videos flaunting a hint of her bold look, dark make-up and over-the-top imagery, fans can’t help but wonder what led to the drastic transformation of the ’90s star.
Here’s how Tweeple reacted to the Grammy-awardee’s new song.

Taylor Swift’s “Dress” is a great song about being a lesbian with your “best friend”. K bye.

And it was not just the lyrics of the ‘Dress’, people were equally berserk about the outfit that the pop singer donned at the album drop announcement. The short, glittery rainbow dress with a matching jacket was nothing but “sore” to many, and others thought it was a “cause of death”.

This is not the first time that the album got people talking about the 27-year-old star. Ever since she announced her latest album, fans couldn’t stop trolling her for many things — right from the white supremacy to copying from Beyonce’s Lemonade album.
