Taylor Swift reveals snake head in latest cryptic video

Here’s what that might mean

Posted on

Beware the snake’s sharp bite.

For the third consecutive day this week, Taylor Swift posted a cryptic video on her social accounts — but, if it can be considered progress, she finally revealed the venomous head of the creature involved. Yes, the sharp glare of a snake made its way online Wednesday morning.

With still no official comment from the star, many theorists on Tuesday suspected it was a bush viper — which could indicate a direct reference to Swift’s extensive digital history with the reptile.

As EW recapped previously, Kim Kardashian went after the 1989 singer on National Snake Day with an impossible-to-miss slew of snake emoji and leaked video of a phone call between her husband Kanye West and Swift last July.

The ordeal was focused on a disagreement about what Swift was told about the lyrical content of West’s song “Famous” in a telephone call with the rapper prior to the track’s release. Swift tried to shut down the narrative immediately. “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song?'” she wrote in a note posted to her since-wiped-clean Instagram. “It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world … While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard.”

All three of the videos Swift has shared this week are completely silent, though most suspect they mean an introduction to new music. On Tuesday, fans became obsessed with the potential sighting of the number 25 in the animal’s scales, thinking that it could indicate a Friday release. Presumably, more theories will arrive now.

The pop star’s most recent album, the behemoth 1989, came out back in 2014.

Swift’s representatives did not immediately respond to request for comment.
