In the lead-up to the release of her new album, Reputation (out Friday, November 10), Taylor Swift has been keeping a low profile, letting the music speak for itself. There’s certainly been plenty said, with fans analyzing her lyrics and imagery for hidden meanings in each and every song, including her latest, “Call It What You Want.” One of the song’s on her newly revealed track list, however, is said to be a bit less subtle than some of its predecessors, with lyrics so overtly steamy that her parents reportedly couldn’t handle it!
The Grammy-winning pop star hosted private album listening sessions for 500 handpicked fans at her homes in London, Los Angeles, Nashville, and Rhode Island, and while the attendees were sworn to secrecy about the new music, they’re sharing some of the insider info from the exclusive events, including a wee bit of scandal. As several Swifties are reporting on Twitter, the singer’s parents, Andrea and Scott Swift, were so scandalized by whatever they heard in the song “Dress” that they couldn’t bear to hear any more of it, choosing to leave the room instead.
“Apparently Scott and Andrea left the room in the [secret sessions] when ‘Dress’ played,” one user tweeted. “I guess it’s a sexy song then. So excited!!”
Others recounted other telling reactions, including Scott “covering his ears” and “full-on blushing.”
Yet another eyewitness (earwitness?!) account claimed the temperature in the room seemingly increased when the song in question played. “Maybe that’s why Andrea walked out,” they wondered.
Oh em gee! While it may have been too hot for Tay’s parentals, we’d be willing to bet track 12 will be the first one a lot of people skip ahead to upon the album’s release.
