She additionally wrote a heartfelt letter to fans in Reputation's album booklet.

For "Ready For It", the SNL performance of it had more of a pop video feel than its futuristic visual: Swift was clearly stoked to be back in Studio 8h, dancing alongside her backup singers before an intense, blood red light display with smoke swirling at their feet. "The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama/But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma", she practically yells over the loud production. "We think we know someone, but the truth is that we only know the version of them they have chosen to show us".

Can we please make her the president of the entire network? On the other side of the coin, my mistakes have been used against me, my heartbreaks have been used as entertainment, and my songwriting has been trivialized as 'oversharing, ' " added Swift. Ready For It? before later returning to croon Call It What You Want. No one can just disappear for as long as she did, going completely off the grid, and then resurface with such ferocity as she has.
