Have you ever wondered why Reputation relies heavily on a “gold” theme? I know I have. I could always make the parallel to the gold wings Karlie sported at VSFS ’14 and the gold stickers her and Taylor wore to Drake’s birthday party in 2016, but those parallels always seemed a bit weak to me.
Most will know this, but in case some people don’t: Taylor is a Sagittarius and Karlie is a Leo.
This information is important because it finally ties together why this “gold” theme is a center piece to this album.
It’s like your eyes are liquor, it’s like your body is gold
Made your mark on me, a golden tattoo
Dancing With Our Hands Tied:
Deep blue but you painted me golden
King of My Heart:
Leo’s are “King” and Taylor wrote this song on Karlie’s birthday.
So it Goes…
All eyes on you, my magician
Gold cage, hostage to my feelings
What I find the most interesting is that Taylor was seen sporting a pisces ring November 2017 (the same month Reputation came out) yet five songs (or 1/3 of the album) reflect Karlie’s horoscope… Not his. If Taylor was actually with Joe, wouldn’t she be referencing a pisces?? Not her friend that she’s totally, definitely not dating?
As we all know by now, Karlie and Josh have announced they are “engaged” (and are now “married”).
In late April, TTBmade a post featuring a website that details personal records of the individual you’re searching for. In this post, it details that Josh is married. A few months later, she got an anonymous message asking about that post, and showed further proof through a website called Spokeo that Karlie is listed as single.
During the last week of August 2018, I sought out this information so I could see for myself, and what I found was interesting. It appears Josh’s public records have somehow been sealed/scrubbed, because when you search for him on Spokeo, it shows he’s single.
If anything, this proves they look/monitor blogs like TTB since ~magically~ it’s changed and gone.
When registering the copyrights for the songs on Reputation, Taylor & Co. listed all the creation dates as 2017, most likely to persuade fans into believing they were written about Joe. This is inaccurate given the fact we know songs were written in 2015 and 2016, and most likely 2014 as well.
How can a person have a ‘big reputation’ if literally nobody knows who you are??
This is also a song about someone Taylor wants to be with for the long haul. How could she have written that about a “boyfriend” she barely knew at the time?
New Year’s Day
Again, another song about a long term relationship.
Don’t Blame Me:
Why would she have to fall from grace just to touch some white boys’ face? Why is she having to hide her obsession? Doesn’t make sense if she’s talking about a het relationship.
So it Goes…
The bridge of this song talks about giving and receiving (sexually) multiple times, which… isn’t really possible when it comes to men. However, it is with women.
On top of that, the album was supposed to come out earlier than it had so writing and recording in 2017 would have been virtually impossible. I would bet money that the album was finished being mixed and mastered by Spring of 2017, or maybe even sooner.
I alsowrote a post upwhen Reputation initially came out about how it doesn’t make logical sense that she could have written an album like Reputation when she had only been “dating” Joe for maybe a few months.
