"Be proud of who you are because Taylor certainly is proud of you and so are we".

She'll also be dropping a new single called "You Need to Calm Down" this afternoon.

Swift also released a colourful lyric video to match the new song on YouTube late Thursday - appropriately during Pride Month.

Often the number 13 is included in these hints as it's Swift's favourite number.

"You Need To Calm Down" is the inevitable result of Swift's ever-increasing voice in political matters, something she shied away from until the midterm elections in 2018, breaking her silence to back Democrat candidates in the Tennessee race.

"One of the pins on Swift's jacket says "Calm.' In her single "Me!" the word "calm" is exchanged multiple times between Swift and Urie". She posted the teaser video to her 83.5 million Twitter followers as well, assuring whatever she had to say would have a large audience. Sitting just under three minutes, the single is a markedly less saccharine experience than her last single "ME!", but it's the lyrics, ardent in their support for the LGBTQ community, which has got the internet very excited.

Making its way to a long list of anti-bully Taylor tracks, many fans are sharing their two cents on "You Need To Calm Down", and the theories have already started rolling in, like yesterday.

In support of Pride Month, Swift wrote a letter to US Senator Lamar Alexander which openly showed her support for the Equality Act.

When the pop star accompanied boyfriend Joe Alwyn to the 2019 BAFTA Awards, she shared a photo on Instagram wearing a pale baby blue tulle gown.

Rumours are swirling that Lover may see collaborations with other artists, such as The Dixie Chicks and even Katy Perry.

"In the ME! music video there were a lot of foreshadowing clues". The singer will also partner with designer Stella McCartney to create clothing and apparel inspired by the "Lover's" songs.

There will be four deluxe special editions of the album.
