What did we make her do?

Everyone is talking about Taylor Swift’s new song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” which has been breaking records since its release. The music video for the song broke Adele’s record for most views in one day, surpassing “Hello” at 43.2 million views. The hype that this song possesses had Kim Kardashian shaking in her Yeezy boots for a full three minutes.

So, with all of the success that T-Swift’s new single has gotten, why does no one know what it’s about?

Alex Russo, a longtime supporter of Swift, was unable to answer the question.

“I’m not really sure what she actually did,” Russo said. “She spends the whole time talking about what we made her do, but in such a vague way. I honestly don’t know.”

This question has gripped the nation in the weeks since the song’s release.

“There are so many possibilities,” Russo said. “She could have shot the sheriff. Maybe she did the locomotion. I, personally, think she went chasing waterfalls.”

Out of the various theories arising from the single, one has gone more mainstream than the others: the possibility of murder.

During the bridge of the song, Swift gives a short dialogue that goes as follows: “I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, ‘cause she’s dead!”

This short aside was followed by an extensive investigation into the whereabouts of Old Taylor. Some believe that Old Taylor may be found wherever Old Kanye currently resides. However, searches have turned up nothing, and no clues have been found. It is quite possible that Swift had a role to play in Old Taylor’s disappearance. There have been no arrests made yet.
