After a year in which she went through a high-profile breakup, a short-lived fling, celebrity feuds and a court battle, Taylor Swift is coming for her haters with a mad, bad, edgy new single. Swift has released "Look What You Made Me Do," a pop track in which she takes aim at unnamed subjects who have tried to bring her down, singing "Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours." The singer, who broke out as a country-pop star at the age of 16, also points to reinventing herself saying: "I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now/ Why? Oh. 'Cause she's dead." The 27-year-old, dropped out of public view after a highly publicized breakup with British DJ Calvin Harris, a short-lived fling with British actor Tom Hiddleston and feuds with Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The song comes just over a week after the singer scored a court victory against a radio DJ whom she accused of groping her in 2013. "Look What You Made Me Do" quickly became a top trend on social media and is the lead single off her new album "Reputation" due out November 10.
