It took all of a second for fans to start dissecting Taylor Swift鈥檚 new single, 鈥淟ook What You Made Me Do.鈥 From allegedly calling out Kanye West to referencing her feud with Katy Perry, Swifties and haters alike found endless hidden meanings in the song鈥檚 visuals and lyrics. There鈥檚 a few fan theories, however, that were way off the mark: at least according to members of the singer鈥檚 crew, who worked with the songstress on the record.

For starters, there鈥檚 been much controversy surrounding the album鈥檚 release date: Reputation is set to drop on November 10, which just so happens to mark the 10-year anniversary of the passing of Ye鈥檚 mom, Donda West. Given Swift鈥檚 past with the rapper, some were quick to condemn the move as a cruel power play, calling it 鈥horrendous, egregious and disgusting.鈥

Now, a publicist for the songstresses鈥 record label is clearing up the drama, saying that the date coincidence was completely unintentional. 鈥淚t is standard practice that releases come out on Fridays and we locked in this release date based on other Universal Music Group releases,鈥 the record label rep told People, stressing the fact that 鈥渢here is no correlation.鈥

Then, there are those Beyonc茅 comparisons that came swiftly (pun intended!) after the musician dropped her teaser trailer video for 鈥淟ook What You Made Me Do,鈥 which featured her in a black leotard surrounded by backup dancers in similar getups. The clip, for many, was eerily similar to that of Queen Bey鈥檚 鈥淔ormation鈥 video, but according to the video鈥檚 director, Joseph Kahn, she was not his inspiration 鈥 far from.

鈥淚鈥檝e worked with Beyonc茅 a few times,鈥 he began. 鈥淪he鈥檚 an amazing person. The #LWYMMDvideo is not in her art space. Love and respect to Bey.鈥

In fact, he says he had a different inspo entirely. 鈥淏efore video release: Kahn copying Lemonade,鈥 he wrote. 鈥淎fter video release: Kahn copying obscure K Pop video made in North Korean prison in 2006.鈥 Innnnteressttting!

What鈥檚 more, Kahn says fans should reserve judgment until they see the final product, as 鈥渢here鈥檚 something to that 鈥淔ormation鈥 shot I painted out and you haven鈥檛 seen yet. Stay tuned Sunday :) 鈥

The full vid is set to premiere during Sunday night鈥檚 MTV VMAs.

We can鈥檛 wait!
