Few days after Taylor Swift was slammed for posting three cryptic videos of snakes on social media, the singer has attracted another round of controversy with her newest album cover.
Critics say the unreleased album which is set to hit the stands on 10 November was messed up with a bad graphic cover. But a large number of fans think it reminds them of something.

The first single from Swift’s new album Reputation will be released on Friday by 12:01, reports confirm.
Here’s an Instagram peep of what to expect from the 27-year-old singer, songwriter and actress.
The American musician started her troubles on Monday when she posted one-third of a snake video, the tail. She later followed up with ‘the body’ and ‘the head’ on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.
Although the snake emoji has been used in recent social media posts by some friends of the multiple awards winner, she didn’t give any hint on the mystery.
One of the Grammy winner’s ex-boyfriends Calvin Harris was among those who previously used the snake emoji. Together with the hashtag “#TeamCalvin,” he ranted in a social media post to mark his separation from Swift, stressing more on a hit song they collaborated on.
Swifty, who recently won a $1 million lawsuit against a former DJ David Mueller for groping her bare butt “behind the scenes” some years back, may likely be telling us another story of her life or relationships as she usually does in her music.
Mueller is a former morning show personality for Denver’s KYGO-FM.
Swift reported the sexual assault incident to his employers in 2013 and he was fired for misconduct.
Consequently, the former DJ sued her for fabricating lies to sack him from the job, and she counter-sued for $1 million.
Following a successful lawsuit, Swift cleared out her social media account barely five days ago for inexplicable reasons.
“I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process,” Swift said in a statement after judgement was passed on the case.
Reputation comes as Swift’s sixth studio effort. Her last album 1989 was released in 2014.
Some Twitter users says the new album cover reminds them of the Myspace era. Here’s what they are tweeting:
