Taylor Swift vowed to re-record her first six albums after Scooter Braun bought her old masters before selling them to a private equity firm. And yesterday, Taylor came through by announcing that she is done with re-recording 2008’s Fearless and will release it soon. At midnight last night, Taylor released her re-recorded version of one of the album’s singles, Love Story, and so now you can go listen to the same song from twelve years ago but slightly different. Enter and enjoy Taylor Swift’s version of a Big Mac with added bacon.
Since Taylor’s lucky number is 13, many Swifties guessed that she will release Fearless 2.0 on 4/9 since 4 plus 9 equals 13. Taylor’s reps have confirmed to Rolling Stone that her fans guessed right. And Cosmopolitan says fans were also quick to notice something else going on with the album cover of Fearless (Taylor’s Version). The shirt she’s wearing is like the one Romeo wore in the original Love Story video and so people were convinced this was Taylor saying she’s her own Romeo now. Feminism!

And at midnight she put out the lyric video for Love Story featuring a montage of photos with fans from the 2008-ish period her original Fearless album came out. Holy shit, the fashion choices going on here were detrimental to society. Remember in 2008 when we all suffered from cold neck/warm arms syndrome and had to wear a scarf with everything?
Remember when people also wore this plaid shit everywhere?
“Top 8” is obviously a reference to MySpace, which makes me sigh and think of simpler times when Tom was the one friend we could always count on to be there for us (because he never left our friends page):
And finally, here’s Taylor dressed up as the daughter of a woman who runs a $3.99-a-minute psychic hotline:
Below is Love Story (Taylor’s Version) and if you listen closely, you can almost hear the screams of the private equity firm that paid at least $300 million for her old masters!
