Early this morning, Taylor Swift tweeted a teaser from her widely anticipated upcoming film #TAYLORvsTREADMILL, a documentary that explores the lives of celebrity millenials in an age that values self-care more than ever. The singer, a collaborator and friend of rapper Kendrick Lamar, bravely reenacted a True Event from her past, wherein she was so triggered by Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” that she all but blacked out, and, well, you’ll see what happens next.
The song is featured on #gymflow, one of Apple Music (TM)’s built-in playlists that promote self-care by way of rap music, including Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” Nas’ “Nasty,” 2 Chainz’ “Used To,” and even “Black Skinhead” by Swift’s longtime frenemy Kanye West. Whether one of these other songs could have sparked events to unfold in the same tragic way is unclear. The lesson, however, is certainly very clear.
