Taylor Swift’s reputation may be at the centre of most celebrity tabloids, particularly her beef with Kanye West that goes years back, but don’t let that distract you from Taylor Swift: the artist, a genius and an innovator, a conceptual innovator. Her level of fame seems to dramatically increase year after year, but her focus has always been on the music.
Swift’s monstrously successful records have increasingly declarative fusions of identity and artistry. Crushing ballads like “Dear John” and “Back to December” outline her history with very public breakups; anthems like “Blank Space” and “Look What You Made Me Do” are her wide-mouthed responses to collective public taunts.
With her 15-year evolution from crimp-haired, guitar-strumming prodigy to utter global phenomenon, her words hit every bottled feeling you have, perfectly capturing distrust and betrayal. Taylor conveys it all in just a few lines. And with her new album "Folklore" being released recently, it's time to revisit her iconic lines.
Take this quiz to prove that you’re a real T-Swift fan who remembers all her genius lyrics!
