Kahn's likely referring to his work with Destiny Child on their "Say My Name" and "Jumpin' Jumpin" videos.
Taylor Swift's brand-new single, "Look What You Made Me Do", seems obviously about her feuds with people like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Calvin Harris, and Katy Perry. One scene aroused particular interest, in which Swift is seen standing in "formation" with her dancers, including the black ensembles, the fishnet tights, but minus the overt Black Panther references Beyoncé included in her now iconic Superbowl performance.
The outfit was also compared to what Beyonce and Serena Williams wore during the music video for Sorry.
However, the director behind the Look What You Made Me Do music video is speaking out in Taylor Swift's defense. (She did, after all, grow up on a Christmas tree farm.) "But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time; Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time", she sings in the pre-chorus. "Love and respect to Bey", he wrote. After all, he worked on a lot of the Lemonade singers work too.
The third showed a series of clips from the upcoming video for "Look What You Made Me Do", which will premiere during the MTV VMAs this Sunday.
Clearly, Twitter took notice of this pretty quickly, and either lived for the comparison or rolled their eyes at the idea that a pop star like Taylor could be as ruthless as Arya. "Before video release: Kahn copying Lemonade".
