While the album serves as an introspective look at the media and the image she has created over the years, it also gives an inside look at her personal life. So what happens when Swift writes an album about a person she's still into?

The singer's current love, British actor Joe Alwyn, was widely seen as the inspiration for some of the more romantic tracks like "Gorgeous" and 'Delicate'. After an explosive chorus, "This Is Why We Don't Have Nice Things" calls out Swift's brief reconciliation with West.
"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 / 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 axe to a mended fence".

In a review headlined "Taylor Swift is no longer America's sweetheart", Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt called Reputation an "oddly bifurcated creation, half obsessed with grim score settling and celebrity damage, half infatuated with a lover who takes her away from all that".
"But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / If only you weren't so shady", she continues, raising a toast to her real friends, her mother, and then eventually to West. On Reputation, the Taylor she's chosen to show us is one that's more confident than ever. 1989 fans will breathe a sigh of relief when "I Did Something Bad" kicks in, though, which starts off a string of shiny pop songs that not only feel like a more natural progression from the last album, but improve upon each listen in that sneaky way Swift songs tend to do.
