Taylor Swift’s new album, Reputation, comes out November 10. She’s released “Look What You Made Me Do” which registered a big fat ‘meh’ from me. The chorus could’ve been better, the beat was above average. She needs to do away with being so self-referential about her tabloid life. I’m pressing snooze on that.
But! “Ready for It” is her second song. She previewed a minute of it during ESPN’s Alabama versus Florida State game. She also played some of it during a commercial for ABC’s upcoming fall season. Both ESPN and ABC are owned by the same company, is Swift owned by that company also?
You can’t get much from a minute (just ask your girlfriend, heyyy!!), but it sounds like that big pop sound Swift’s known for. That is to say, catchy, more of a chorus you can sing along to.
Some of the lyrics:
Are you ready for it?
Baby, let the games begin
The games begin
The games begin”
In the middle of the night,
In my dreams,
You should see the things we do, baby.
Would you say, in your, “wild dreams,” Taylor? Hehe.
Are you #readyforit?

As a song, it’s better than “Look What You Made Me Do.” On the other hand, compared to Taylor’s previous songs and albums, I have a feeling this album might not measure up. Look at 1989. Right out of the gate, she had “Shake It Off.” Then “Blank Space,” “Style” and “Bad Blood.” That is a murderer’s row right there. Classics.
“Look What You Made Me Do” can’t hold “Shake It Off”‘s jock. My guess is there’s nothing that will blow anyone away.
In fact, people will probably enjoy the Easter egg hunt with this album more than the actual songs. Here’s an interesting one:
…this may hint at some truth to the astute fan theory that each version of Swift at the end of the “LWYMMD” video represents a different song on the album. It would make sense, since there are 15 tracks and 15 Taylors. It’s also worth noting that “You Belong With Me” Taylor is amongst that crew, so that could potentially be representative of “Ready For It.”
I’ll give it up to Taylor, these little clues and fan theories, if true, are some smart marketing ploys by the Taylor Swift Corporation. At the same time, it’ll do nothing to dispel the idea that everything Swift does is calculated. Her team probably A/B tested every single song and gimmick for this new album. Also, she’s the Aryan Princess. Sooo, there’s that.
Taylor Swift might not venture out in public very often these days, but she’s proving she’s just like the rest of us in one way — she’ll always show up for a friend’s wedding. Taylor was spotted out for the first time in months Saturday,…
According to media reports out in TMZ today, country music superstar Luke Bryan is in talks with producers about potentially becoming a judge on the hit show!
Producers have reportedly even made an offer to Luke, though we're not sure what it is yet -- and money will be an issue, considering Katy is due $25 million, and Ryan Seacrest is getting nearly $15 million.
The next-highest paid talent will reportedly be right around $6 million, but Luke is very, VERY popular in country music, and he could fetch even more money if he holds out!
Not only that, but filming is set to begin in a couple weeks, and they need to sort out their judge ranks before they get started -- so producers better put together a pretty good offer!
We'll see if he fits into Idol's budget restrictions, though.
What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Would you want to see Luke Bryan on Idol?!?!
Let us know in the comments (below)!!!

As we've said before, Kylie Jenner's new show, Life of Kylie, is pretty much the dumbest show in the history of television.
It's so dumb that you can actually kind of feel your brain cells dying off while watching it. And it hurts.
It's not that we really have anything against Kylie -- with her sizzling selfies and her never-ending circus of drama, not to mention all the fun we have speculating on her plastic surgery, we actually love her.
But the kind of things she chooses to film for the show, it's just ... it's hard to watch.
For example, remember when she cried about how hard her life is because people say things about the selfies she chooses to put on the internet?
Or when she cried about how she was too busy being rich and famous to go to prom?
Or when she cried about how everyone copied her in having fun hair colors?
Life of Kylie basically seems to be comprised of different scenes of Kylie complaining about various things, and it's just not the kind of drama we were hoping for.
And, in a new sneak peek for this week's episode, the girl is just proving us right.
In the clip, Kylie and a couple of her friends visit the butterfly exhibit at the London Zoo ... which is an odd choice, considering that Kylie is sincerely terrified of butterflies.
And we're not making fun of her for being afraid of those cute little critters. You can't help what scares you, after all.
But what we can make fun of is the choice she made to visit an exhibit specifically for butterflies, and then to film it and air it on national television.
"Butterflies are just a part of the secret of Kylie," she reveals to the camera after the zoo visit.
"It's kind of just ironic because I'm terrified -- terrified -- of butterflies."
What's ironic about it? She never really explains it.
She does, however, explain that if you cut a butterfly's wings off and just look at its body, "they're not that pretty."
In all her infinite wisdom, she tells us that a butterfly is "literally a bug."
How has this girl survived for 20 years?
Watch the nightmare come alive in the video below:
Kailyn Lowry, as we all know, gave birth to a precious little baby boy nearly a month ago.
It must be such a special time for her, right?
From what we've seen on her social media, she's really been loving becoming a mother for the third time -- we've seen all sorts of sweet baby snuggles, and it's been lovely.
But while Kailyn is obviously super focused on her children right now, she's also an individual with certain wants and expectations, you know?
And so, like many women who have just given birth, she's reportedly been putting quite a bit of thought into snapping back to her pre-baby body.
As a source explains to Hollywood Life, she "can't wait" for that snap back, and "she's really excited about getting back in the gym."
Which is true -- earlier this week she tweeted that next week, she'd be all cleared to start working out again.
"She feels like this time around it's going to be a lot easier to lose the weight because she knows so much more about nutrition than she did before."
At the moment, and probably for the foreseeable future, she's breastfeeding little Baby Lo, "so she doesn't want to do anything crazy and go on some crash diet."
However, "she is planning to get on a good meal plan that will give her exactly what she needs for her and her baby to be the healthiest!"
The Kailyn insider adds that "At first she's just going to focus on moving her body again," and "she's actually looking forward to working out again, which is something she never thought she'd say."
But since she's had a little bit of plastic surgery before, would she be willing to get some more to help her bounce back?
"Kailyn is planning to get her body back the all-natural way," the source says, "but never say never when it comes to surgery."
"She had such a great experience with Dr. Miami and doesn't regret her surgeries at all."
Right now, "her goal is to do it all on her own, but there are certain things, like getting a perfect stomach, that are borderline impossible after three kids."
"She's going to see what she can do all on her own, but if she can't get to a place she's happy with then she's definitely open to getting a little help."
And honestly, more power to her.
Gossip is fun, and so is all that shade-throwing the kids enjoy so much, but in reality, Kailyn can do whatever she likes with her own body.
And if a little bit of surgical tweaking makes her feel better about herself, then good for her.
We're sure Dr. Miami is waiting for her with open arms.
