Taylor Swift 2.0? Singer signals Rebirth with symbolic New Music Video #LWYMMD

Taylor Swift‘s new video “Look What You Made Me Do” which premiered at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards is well on its way to smashing streaming records. Less than a week after its release, the video has gathered over 92 million views on YouTube.
The video itself is a representation of Swift’s rebirth as she employs the use of imagery to signal a change in her personality. The video begins with a zombified Swift digging her own grave which literally reads “Here Lies Taylor Swift’s Reputation“. This signifies that the death of the old Swift.
Remember when she earned a dollar in the case against the Radio DJ who groped her in 2013. Well, the next scene sees Swift in a luxurious tub filled with diamonds (reported to be real ones valued at around $10 Million) and a single dollar symbolizing her triumph in that case.
The most symbolic scene which is towards the end sees the new Swift standing over a swarm of former Swifts. Swift 2.0 also received a call of someone requesting to speak with Taylor Swift. Her response:
She can’t come to the phone right now… Because she’s dead.
