Taylor Swift Crushes YouTube's 24-Hour Record

Taylor Swift Crushes YouTube's 24-Hour Record

Taylor in her new video possibly made a nod to her fallout with Kim and Kanye by her inclusion of a Shakespeare quote on the arm of a throne she sits on in the video - "Et Tu Brute".

The 27-year-old pop star made YouTube history after releasing the music video for her new single "Look What You Made Me Do" off her upcoming album Reputation.

According to publicly-available data, Look What You Made Me Do was streamed 5.43 million times on Saturday - a drop of 2.48 million.

It's a lot to take in, and we're still processing what we witnessed, but rest assured that if you wanted a big budget video that can be summed up as, "See?"

And finally, Swift's new record could also simply be a result of her own self-promotion. This is a multi-level Easter egg.

Swift's favorite number is 13, and it's sprinkled throughout the "LWYMMD" video- even though, isn't that old Taylor's favorite number?

"I'm not really a Kanye person - he's insane".

Swift isn't just surrounded by pearls in this tub, though.

That little dollar bill in the tub was for you, David.

Trump hopes government shutdown won't be necessary over wall funding
At a news conference with visiting Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, Trump also said Mexico may pay for the wall by reimbursement. Trump said at a rally last week in Phoenix that he would "end up probably terminating" NAFTA "at some point".

But some fans have criticised her for being shown relaxing in a bath of diamonds, claiming it's a reference to Kim Kardashian's robbery in Paris. The columns in the room are adorned with the phrase "Et tu Brute", the famous line uttered by the titular character in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar as his best friend betrays and fatally stabs him. Taylor also goes back to where her feud with Kanye began, recreating her look from the 2009 VMA's.

Next we see Swift in a auto crash. They are not going to give her or her new music any attention, ' the insider said of the parents of two. Swift has won 10.

It's no surprise that Taylor bases the majority of her albums and songs off her past experiences (relationships included) and she hasn't failed to deliver this time 'round.

Taylor's "You Belong With Me" persona looks nearly identical to her 2008 video, except her t-shirt now displays the names of her closest celebrity friends.

To that, all of her selves exclaim, "Shut up!"

How could anyone forget that some what cringe worthy moment when Tom rocked a t-shirt that read, "I Heart TS"? Why eight dancers? Some people think it's because she's had eight famous boyfriends over the course of her career. At the end of the scene, the new Swift rids herself of all of them. They take a bow, then proceed to rip into each other. "It's so annoying", zombie Tay snaps at "You Belong With Me" Tay.

West also took aim at Swift on his track "Famous" past year, in which he referred to the singer as a "b***h" and joked about sleeping with her. The video portrays Swift literally rising from the dead as she becomes more glamorous and powerful.

Not all of the references are personal, though. Let us know on Facebook and Twitter, please.
