- "I never trust a narcissist, but they love me / So I play 'em like a violin / And I make it look oh-so-easy." It seems like Swift is making reference to her longtime frenemy, Kanye West. After West infamously interrupted Swift's acceptance speech 2009 VMAs, the two seemingly made up and became friends around 2015. Of course, that all changed though when West released his song "Famous" in 2016.
- "If a man talks sh*t, then I owe him nothing / I don't regret it one bit, 'cause he had it coming." In West's song "Famous," he makes reference to Swift as "that b*tch" before taking credit for her fame and success. During the 2016 Grammys, Swift took a moment to address the song publicly as she took home best album of the year, and officially reignited their feud as a result.
