Big reputation! Taylor Swift arrived at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards tonight while rumors swirled that the mega pop star was getting ready to announce Reputation (Taylor’s Version), her re-recording of her 2017 album. Fans already had an inkling that the album might be on the horizon, and then earlier today, Swift turned all her social media profile photos black and white, which fans took as a nod to the Reputation album cover and era. Her website also briefly went down:
The singer then hit the red carpet in a white Schiaparelli couture corset gown with black gloves, carrying on the color story.
On the Reputation album cover, Swift is wearing a chain choker necklace, and on the carpet, she chose to wear a bejeweled choker that also looked eerily similar to the necklaces she sports in Reputation’s “Look What You Made Me Do” music video.
But perhaps most importantly, Swift donned a choker with a clock, and the time seemed to be set to midnight. Now, is that a reference to the multiple Grammy nominations she received this year for her album Midnights or a message to the fans that she’s releasing Reputation (Taylor’s Version) at midnight tonight? Only time will tell.
One thing is for certain: There’s a chance that Swift is simply clowning us all, as she did announce that she’s releasing a brand-new album called The Tortured Poets Department this April, all while accepting the award for Best Pop Vocal Album. The new album cover? Also black and white:
Swift is still up for multiple awards tonight, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year, which means there could be more announcements to come. Stay tuned.
