Taylor Swift’s third single from her upcoming album Reputation, “Gorgeous,” entered our eardrums at midnight on Thursday. It’s been a strange album rollout so far, defined by Right Said Fred samples and deals with UPS, and “Gorgeous” continues down that road. After listening one time and one time only, the Ringer staff answered a few questions about the latest single.
Justin Charity: Each new Reputation single has me retrospectively wondering whether Taylor Swift has ever made a good song, or any songs; whether she even exists,that I think you’re better than this. Or might have been at some point. I think.Alyssa Bereznak: I used to think falling in love with Taylor Swift was analogous to joining Scientology. But now I realize it’s probably more like getting really into CrossFit.
