Taylor Swift’s ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ Calls Out Fans and Friends, Album Broken Down

So in “The Tortured Poets Department,” instead of making it all about Joe or other unsuccessful romantic endeavours, Taylor Swift targeted the audience and the media, and also, at some parts, the external sources that dictated how her relationships should work.

Before we delve into that, it is to be clarified that the album came out as a double album, as a whole surprise.

Taylor Swift’s ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ Calls Out Fans and Friends

At first, it was expected that the album would only have 15 songs; however, the anthology of the album has 15 more songs, which gives the fans 30 songs to move on from. In “But Daddy I Love Him,” she talks about how the media and her family did not accept her dating Matty Healy, and she faced severe backlash for her decision.

Then, in “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?” Taylor Swift talked about her previous flames and how she let her reputation go down without really knowing what she was up to. Taylor’s new album, “TTPD,” is all about self-growth and her perspective on herself.

Lyrics like, “You taught me, you caged me, and then you called me crazy,” and when she referred to the statues that break due to negligence caught the attention and fans were almost on the verge of tears because the poems Taylor wrote are a part of all of us from now.

The majority of this album is about Taylor Swift calling out her fans and friends about their comments on her relationship with Matty Healy. What’s terrifying about it is, that most of her messages from the album sound a lot like the ones that tend to come from 1975.
