  • Gigi Hadid wished Taylor Swift a happy birthday

Whether viewers were Ready For It or not, Taylor Swift returned to Studio 8H this weekend.

The 27-year-old superstar released her sixth studio album on Friday (10 November) after months away from the limelight following her high-profile break-ups with Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston, and A-list feuds with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry. The album may be held from streaming for a week or longer, according to people familiar with the matter. She gave us singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. The superstar picked out two new tracks - Are You Ready For It? and Call It What You Want - and performed them both to perfection on SNL! "There will just be reputation", she concluded.

South Africa introduced midfielders Andile Jali and Siphiwe Tshabalala midway through the second half, but neither made an impact.


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'.

"It was so nice being friends again/There I was giving you a second chance/But then you stabbed me in the 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", she sings. Despite being a familiar promo stop from many of Swift's peers, the singer apparently hasn't deemed it necessary for her past three album cycles. It had the biggest YouTube debut in history with more than 43 million views in the first 24 hours. The results are delightful, in large part because you can tell how proud she is of herself.
