Rеvеɑlinɡ the rеɑl meaning behind Taylor Swift’s song everyone thinks is about Karlie Kloss

When something no longer feels right, the reason could be as simple as it is. At least, that’s the sentiment explored in one of two new tracks from Taylor Swift’s deluxe edition of Evermore, her ninth studio album, which has kept Swifties entertained since its sᴜrprise release in December 2020. Swift debuted “Right Where You Left Me” and “It’s Time to Go” on Thursday, Jan. 7, with the latter drawing comparisons to Karlie Kloss. Well, Taylor Swift explained the meaning of “It’s Time to Go,” and it’s still a bit of a puzzle.

Following the song’s release, fans attempted to connect the hints scattered throughout the lyrics, which clearly mention the dissolution of a female friendship. Swift fans may recall that Swift’s long-term relationship with Kloss was rumored to have ended due to Kloss’ friendship with Scooter Braun (who Swift has a sour history with). And this section of the song only adds to the narrative: “When the words of a sister come back in whispers, that prove she was not, in fact, what she seemed.” She’s not your dream twin; she’s a crook who was apprehended.” Isn’t that straightforward?

Swift took to Twitter and Instagram on Friday, Jan. 8, to explain the meaning behind “Right Where You Left Me” and “It’s Time to Go.” “The first is a song about a girl who remained forever in the exact spot where her heart was broken, completely frozen in time,” she explained. Swift went on to say, “‘it’s time to go’ is about listening to your gut instinct when it tells you to leave.” “How do you always know before you know?”

Hmm. That’s a very relatable experience, but Swift’s caption doesn’t say who (or what events) she’s referring to. After all, her fans frequently praise her poetic use of lyricism to tell engaging stories that leave room for interpretation. Is the song “It’s Time to Go” about Kloss? Perhaps, but perhaps not.

Swifties believe she’s also referring to Scott Borchetta, the Big Machine Records executive who sold her masters to Braun in July 2019. It’s possible that the song is addressing Kloss, Braun, and Borchetta all at the same time. And, like many songs from Folklore and Evermore, its meaning may be best left vague and open-ended.

The most expensive package is $899 — before tax and fees!

Raise your hand if you, too, blacked out while trying to get Taylor Swift’s Eras tour tickets, because it was a trying time for every Swiftie out there. Not only was Ticketmaster’s virtual queue a mess, but once you got through it, you were confronted with one of the most stressful steps of the process: attempting to secure your ticket. With tickets flying off the shelves, you may have simply purchased whatever was available at the time. If that was a VIP ticket, you’re probably wondering if Taylor Swift’s VIP Eras tour package is worth it. Let’s dissect it.

To begin with, VIP packages for a Taylor Swift tour are nothing new. VIP packages for many artists include a meet and greet, merch, and some of the best seats in the venue for the show. Fans are aware, however, that Swift is one of the few artists who does not offer paid meet and greets. To meet her, you must be chosen by someone on her team, such as her mother, Taylor Nation, or even Swift herself. Since meeting Swift isn’t included in the package, it’s reasonable to wonder what could be worth hundreds of dollars — the price of these VIP packages.

For Christmas in 2017, I was fortunate enough to receive a VIP package to Swift’s Reputation tour. I didn’t spend the money on the package because it was a gift, but my sister made it clear whether she thought it was worth the splurge. While it’s too early to tell if the Eras tour VIP packages are truly worth the money, it might be useful to know if Swift’s previous VIP packages fall into the cop or drop category.
