Fans Think Taylor Swift's TIME Portrait Is Hiding a Huge 'Reputation' Easter Egg

Taylor Swift was named TIME Magazine's Person of the Year, and she gave an extremely lengthy and pretty rare interview that covered everything—including some hints about Reputation (Taylor's Version).

And while Taylor didn't explicitly reveal when she'd be dropping RepTV in the interview itself, fans turned their attention to a mosaic portrait of Taylor featured in TIME by artist Jane Perkins—which appears to be packed with Easter Eggs. Like, TIME straight up wrote an article letting everyone know that there are hidden clues just waiting to be found—and fans pretty much immediately noticed a toy snake (THE symbol of Taylor's Reputation era) placed next to a watch face with the hands at 12 and 7.

Naturally, this has people thinking Taylor could drop RepTV (or at least a RepTV announcement...or *something* RepTV related) on December 7, aka TODAY.

Plus, there's this interesting observation, for those of you who want to go deep:

On top of ^ all ^ that ^, Taylor wrote an Instagram caption about her TIME profile and said this: "I have tRuSt iSSueS when it comes to interviews." Naturally, the abundance of capital Ss have everyone convinced RepTV is coming due to sssssssssnakes.

ANYWAY, Taylor spoke a bit about Reputation to TIME, saying "It’s a goth-punk moment of female rage at being gaslit by an entire social structure. I think a lot of people see it and they’re just like, Sick snakes and strobe lights."

She added that RepTV would be "fire," and joked of her re-recordings, "I’m collecting horcruxes. I’m collecting infinity stones. Gandalf’s voice is in my head every time I put out a new one. For me, it is a movie now."
