Lena Dunham's got a funny joke about Taylor Swift's new lyrics

Good one, dad

Posted on

As Taylor Swift‘s new single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” continues to draw mixed reactions on social media, the singer’s squad is starting to weigh in. Lena Dunham, whose boyfriend Jack Antonoff wrote and produced the song with Swift, shared a funny review for the track on social media…from her dad.

“Finally got my father to weigh in on @taylorswift13 @jackantonoff single: ‘I don’t trust my body but my body trusts me! Very cool lyrics!'” Dunham wrote. The actual lyrics: “I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me.”

This isn’t the first time a famous parent has misheard Swift’s lyrics. The pop star’s mom, Andrea Swift, is among the people who thought Swift said “Starbucks lovers” instead of “long list of ex-lovers” in her hit song “Blank Space” from 2014’s massively successful 1989.

Reactions to “LWYMMD,” Swift’s first single off of her newly announced Reputation album, have ranged from “I’ve never been more in love with a Taylor Swift song” to it’s a “bad knockoff of a Lorde track.” After pieces of her accompanying music video were revealed on Friday, others suggested she ripped off Beyoncé’s videos from the Lemonade visual album.

Nicki Minaj, who has a history with Swift, tweeted without mentioning any names, “N—- sit down. Be humble,” after the video dropped.

However, Ruby Rose, another member of Swift’s famed squad, seems to have her friend’s back. “Omg OH MY GOD,” she tweeted.

Martha Hunt also weighed in, saying she was “working out like 5 x harder today” because of the song.

After teasing the drop with a number of snake videos earlier in the week, fans theorized the song was in response to her ongoing feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, who baited Swift last year with snake emoji on social media.

The gentlemen of Right Said Fred received a writing credit on the song, as the rhythm resembles the pattern on their 1992 song “I’m Too Sexy,” and they’ve called it “marvelous.”

The full version of the “LWYMMD” video will drop during Sunday’s MTV VMAs.
