In further support for the LGBTQ community, Swift goes on to sing, "You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace / And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate / 'Cause shade never made anybody less gay".
"Sunshine on the street at the parade/ But you would rather be in the dark age/ Just making that sign, must've taken all night".
The slower tempo of "You Need to Calm Down", which you can listen to below, is made lively by its synth beats and snaps, her vocals accompanied by a chorus of voices to elevate the chorus.
Swift also plays on her lyrics with the word glad, changing it to "GLAAD", the acronym for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation in America. A couple months ago, she released "ME!"

"I wanted you to hear the song first, then see the video. Be proud of who you are because Taylor certainly is proud of you and so are we". "There's a lot going on in the video so I wanted that to be a separate discovery", she said.

After over a month of sifting through easter eggs from the "ME!" music video, interviews, performances, outfits and more, on this day, June 13, 2019, Taylor Alison Swift has finally revealed the title, cover art, and release date for her highly anticipated 7th album: Lover. She posted the letter to Instagram.
"Lover", her seventh full-length release, is coming out August 23. It's in a long line of anti-haters singles from Swift, but this time she's returning fire not just at her own detractors but dedicating a significant portion of the song to taking on homophobes... very cheerfully, in keeping with all other recent Swift mood signifiers.
