Here's Taylor Swift's 5 Best Lyric Lines About Shaking Off The Haters
In celebration of her new single "Shake It Off", we picked out TayTay's most empowering anti-hater lyrics
Hey, Swifties: your queen is back! In a live web-stream hosted by Yahoo! on Monday, August 18th, the one and only Taylor Swift announced the name of her fifth studio album — 1989, after her birth year — as well as the first single off the upcoming LP. "Shake It Off," as expected from the title, is a full-on pop jam that's a kiss-off to Taylor's players, haters, and her critics overall. Are you trying to keep your head high among the negative naysayers? Follow Taylor's advice and check out what she has to say in her lyrics about keeping the haters at bay:
5. I go on too many dates, but I can't make them stay / At least that's what people say, that's what people say
You may think you know Taylor, but you have no idea. Think she's going on dates all the time? Just check her Instagram: she's basically hanging out with all her gal pals (including Lorde!) and having fun solo. She don't need no man.
4. I'm dancing on my own, I'll make the moves up as I go / And that's what they don't know, that's what they don't know
Taylor marches to the beat of her own drum, and makes it quite apparent in the accompanying music video to "Shake It Off": we'd recognize those quirky, awkward dance moves anywhere!
3. My ex-man bought his new girlfriend / She's like "oh my God", but I'm just gonna shake it
Drama alert! Which ex-man could she be talking about, and who's the new girlfriend? TayTay's most likely never gonna spill the beans, which much drive you haters insane.
2. I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving / It's like I got this music in my body and it's gonna be alright
No matter what you say to T. Swift, she's just going to keep on doin' what she's doin'. Nothing phases her. Get the message?
1. The players gonna play, play, play, play, play / And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate / Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake / I shake it off
This is officially our new motto for 2014. #ShakeItOff
