Everything Taylor Swift Said to the Old Taylors in the "Look What You Made Me Do" Video

"Oh, there she goes, playing the victim again..."

Taylor Swift's new music video for "Look What You Made Me Do" has a lot in it—but perhaps it's most wow moment is at the very end, after the song ends. Swift confronts the old versions of herself, where she mocks her public image and the criticism she's received head on. It starts at the 3:30 mark in the video, but here's the full conversation transcribed with the references Swift is making annotated.

"You Belong With Me" Taylor Swift (circa 2009): You guys!!

"Out of the Woods" Zombie Taylor Swift (2015): Stop making that surprised face. It's so annoying.

"Shake It Off" Taylor Swift (2014): Yeah, you can't possibly be that surprised all the time.

"Look What You Made Me Do" Black Jumpsuit Swift: What's with that bitch?

"Out of the Woods" Zombie Taylor Swift: Don't call me that.


Fearless Tour Taylor Swift (2009): Y'all!

Red Tour Taylor Swift (2013): Oh, stop acting like you're all nice. You are SO fake.

Fearless Tour Taylor Swift: (sobbing)

Red Tour Taylor Swift: (mocks her crying)

"Look What You Made Me Do" Leather Jacket Taylor Swift: Oh, there she goes, playing the victim again.

Red Snake "Look What You Made Me Do" Taylor Swift: *snake hisses*

2014 Met Gala Taylor Swift: (horrified, looking at Cheetah Jacket Swift on her phone) What are you doing?

Cheetah Jacket "Look What You Made Me Do" Taylor Swift: Getting receipts! I'm gonna edit this later.

Original 2009 VMA Taylor Swift (where the Kanye feud first began): I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative.

[Swift wrote this line in her Instagram response following the Kimye Snapchat takedown. The internet turned it into a meme.]
