Taylor Swift 'Repuation'

Kim is reportedly “scared” of being exposed in the upcoming release.

It's been less than 24 hours since Taylor Swift announced her seventh studio album, 'Reputation', but the Internet rumour mill is already spinning.

The singer teased the follow-up to her 2014 record '1989' with a series of sinister videos featuring a digital snake, before revealing the new album's title and cover artwork.

Set to drop on November 10th, 'Reputation' features a black-and-white image of Taylor, who can be seen wearing a ripped baggy sweater and sporting slicked back hair.

The country-turned-pop star appears to be surrounded by newspaper headlines with her name repeated in various fonts, with 'Reputation' stamped in bold rock-influenced typography.

Sure enough, people began connecting the dots between T's new release and her previous beef with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, which was sparked by a phone call conversation between Swift and West regarding his 'TLOP' track "Famous."

Suggestions were made that Taylor's choice of font resembles that of Kanye's 'Pablo' merchandise, whilst her rugged attire may be a nod to the rapper's 'Yeezy' clothing brand.

Users also speculated the Swift's wet-look hairstyle mimics that of Kardashian's frequent hairdo of choice.

People are even hoping she features a sample from 'Famous' in the new drop.

In response to the announcement, Kim Kardashian is reportedly "scared" of the backlash she may be set to face after Taylor's new single drops.

It was widely speculated that the singer's cryptic snake videos were in reference to the abundance of snake emojis thrown Taylor's way after Kardashian allegedly exposed Swift on Snapchat.

"One of the few people out there that is not very excited for Taylor Swift’s upcoming music is Kim Kardashian," a source has said.

"She feels that she will be attacked along with Kanye in a future song over their past differences and she doesn’t want to deal with the fallout of a Taylor Swift song and what that does to people."

Both Kim and Kanye are yet to respond to the 'Reputation' rumours.
