MEANING OF THE MAN TAYLOR SWIFT SONG

You would have probably by now seen Taylor Swift ‘s new music video of “The Man” . If you have not go watch it now !!!
Like always the video has a lot of ‘Easter eggs ‘ and hidden meanings.
In the beginning of the video we can see a MAN standing at the window who then is shown motivating his employees .He throw a paper in the air and few girls try to catch it .And the background music is ‘ when everyone believes ya ‘ which shows how much importance men are given . Then he is shown sitting in a train and doing all kinds of manner less things such as ‘smoking in public’ , ‘ Throwing ashes on the floor’ , and ‘Reading the newspaper ‘ .

There is so much on the newspaper …..
Front Cover : ‘ What MAN won the year in celebrity dating ‘ ‘ MEN we love in sports ‘ ‘ year’s most eligible CEO ‘
Back Cover : ‘ for MEN with real thirst ‘ ‘ it’s MEN against bos and no ladies around ‘
The Style Section is with just 2 women in dresses with no headings ….. everyone is just talking about the MEN.

Then further the Man is shown peeing in the public in front of a wall on with it’s written ‘ 13 Street Station ‘ ‘ 1989 ‘ ‘ Red ‘ ‘ Speak now ‘ ‘ Reputation ‘ and ‘ Karma ‘ with this a board is shown saying ” MISSING IF FOUND RETURN TO TAYLOR SWIFT ” and there is another board showing a symbol sign of ” No Scooter ” . She is of course referring to Scooter Braun . And the mission board is to tell him that all her songs belong to her and for now are stolen. This is probably the most iconic scene .

Moving on the Man is then shown on a ship with many girls around him, he is being rude to the captain and also to someone on phone. He is then shown celebrating with all the girls around him . In next scene also he is shown waking up from a girl’s bed and instead of being criticized like women he walks through the ‘ Hall of fame ‘ giving high fives to all . This shows how people talk it as an achievement for a guy to be with multiple girls but when it comes to a woman it becomes esthetically wrong.

In the next scene the Man is shown sitting in a park with her daughter hardly paying any attention to her but then he just picks her up and everyone has the banner of ‘ World’s Greatest Dad ‘ . But this same great dad is then shown in a party telling his BROS how it was last night , drinking and talking about women’s body. Which again shows how fake people are.

In the very next scene the Man is shown playing tennis all aggressively, breaking the racket, showing fingers, lying on the ground and then Taylor Swift says cut…. She is shown being the director . When the Man asks if he did good she asks him to be more sexier and more likeable but says well done to Loren who was just standing at the side which kind of shows ‘ if men were treated like women ‘ . Women are never considered good enough but men get the praise for not doing anything.

But if you are wondering who that Man was in the video let me tell you it was non none other than Taylor Swift herself . All her fans were surprised of the transformation. Many fans say she looked like ‘ Tom Cruise ‘.
Taylor’s acting skills are worth appreciating. People just couldn’t guess that it’s her all the time in the video!!!

LYRICS OF THE MAN

►Official ‘The Man’ Lyrics Written by Taylor Swift & Joel Little

I would be complex

I would be cool

They’d say I played the field before I found someone to commit to

And that would be ok

For me to do

Every conquest I had made would make me more of a boss to you

I’d be a fearless leader

I’d be an alpha type

When everyone believes ya

What’s that like? I’m so sick of running as fast I can

Wondering if I’d get there quicker

If I was a man

And I’m so sick of them coming at me again

Cause if I was a man…

Then I’d be the man

I’d be the man

I’d be the man They’d say I hustled

Put in the work

They wouldn’t shake their heads and question how much of this I deserve

What I was wearing

If I was rude

Could all be separated from my good ideas and power moves

And they would toast to me, oh

Let the players play I’d be just like Leo

In Saint-Tropez Chorus What’s it like to brag about

Raking in dollars

And getting bitches and models

And it’s all good if you’re bad

And it’s okay if you’re mad If I was out flashing my dollars

I’d be a bitch, not a baller

They paint me out to be bad

So it’s okay that I’m mad I’m so sick of running as fast I can

Wondering if I’d get there quicker

If I was a man

I’m so sick of them coming at me again

Cause if I was a man…

Then I’d be the man I’d be the man

I’m so sick of running as fast I can

Wondering if I’d get there quicker

If I was a man

And I’m so sick of them coming at me again

Cause if I was a man…

Then I’d be the man

I’d be the man

I’d be the man

I’d be the man

I’d be the man

I’d be the man

If I was a man

I’d be the man
