This week, you can't move for "Look What You Made Me Do" music video breakdowns. Taylor Swift's latest single and music video has the internet abuzz with theories (opens in new tab). Some are downright wacky, whilst others are a little mean (opens in new tab). While Taylor herself has done some meaningful Tumblr liking, the director of the beef-filled music video has given a more definitive answer.
Joseph Kahn is a long-time collaborator of Swift, and was behind the legendary music videos for "Blank Space," "Bad Blood," and more.
He has already used his Twitter account to stand up for his coworker and friend, tweeting about the apparent similarities between Swift's dancer formation and Beyoncé's own aesthetic.
Now, he's coming out once more to back up his girl, pointing out the double standards in the internet's opinions.
He Tweeted saying: "If I plan something as a man I'm a 'genius.' If Taylor as a woman plans something she is 'manipulative.' Double standards. This is wrong."
Kahn kind of has a point—maybe our opinion of Swift says more about us than it does her?
Because, whatever we think of the new Taylor, or the old Taylors (opens in new tab), all of them can write a pretty catchy tune, and that's what matters, isn't it?
