Here's the one way to legally stream Taylor Swift's 'reputation' (sort of)

Maybe for Swift's next album, Reynolds and Lively's younger daughter, Ines, will get to have a crack at backing vocals. Yet, while Reputation tightens up 1989's wide-ranging pop experiments into a more defined sound, the album's slower stretches - where she's stuck in the throes of love for songs on end - may leave some fans nostalgic for her previous album's more playful pop stylings or the twangy guitars of her earlier releases.

Swift has had a back-and-forth relationship with streaming services in recent years.

Swift will reportedly keep "Reputation" off of streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music for at least its first week of sales, according to Variety. And - given the obsession with all things Swift - the savvy singer wants to pre-empt all of the hot takes and endless scrutiny that will inevitably go into every lyric on her 15-track album.

Today, one of the most anticipated albums of 2017 was finally released.

Speculation was only driven further when Swift, notable social media creeper, responded to a fan on Tumblr that "only 300 people know", implying that she told fans at the secret listening parties.

With an album title like Reputation, fans speculated whether the entire album would be a vindictive screed aimed at Swift's enemies.

Right now, that's the best we're gonna get. The kicker is her explicit reference to the speakerphone call during which Kim recorded her, as Swift continues, "And therein lies the issue/Friends don't try to trick you/Get you on the phone and mind-twist you/And so I took an ax to a mended fence". "It was so nice being friends again/There I was giving you a second chance/But then you stabbed my back while shaking my hand", she sings.

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things may be an enjoyable slice of pettiness, but the album's crown jewel of gossip is Getaway Car, which sees Swift in full storyteller mode as she chronicles using one doomed relationship to escape another. "And here's to you, 'cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do", she says, before breaking down in giggles, saying, "I can't even say it with a straight face!"
