Taylor Swift’s Best Surprised Faces

The singer, 27, dropped her new hit “Gorgeous” on Friday, October 20, and while it’s most likely about her boyfriend Joe Alwyn, there’s also one specific lyric that cat-lovers are feline good about.

“Guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats / Alone, unless you wanna come along, oh!”

She’s referencing Meredith and Olivia, her two furry friends named respectively after Ellen Pompeo‘s Grey’s Anatomy character, Meredith Grey, and Mariska Hargitay‘s Law & Order: Special Victims character, Olivia Benson.

Celebrities Obsessed With Their Cats

Fans of Taylor’s immediately took to Twitter and started raving over the line. Here are some notable reactions:

Many Swifties are also commenting on how different “Gorgeous” sounds, compared to her past work. Reputation, set to be released on November 10, will all be new sounds, an insider recently told Us Weekly.

Swift’s six album will be “her most experimental work yet in terms of sound,” our source revealed. Another insider added that Reputation will “chronicle her feuds,” including the beef she has with Kanye WestKim KardashianKaty Perry and ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris. “It will be across multiple songs, somewhat cryptically … but also obvious.”

However, she’s focused on her current relationship with Alwyn. That’s why she’s done things differently with the Mary Queen of Scots actor.

“It’s been Taylor’s M.O. to be seen with a new guy first, have her new single drop and then announce her new album. But this time, she’s kept the guy private. And that’s pretty interesting. She really likes Joe,” a source recently told Us, before adding, “expect to see them step out together really soon.”
