Taylor Swift has continued her social media tease as she revealed the face of a snake in a third cryptic clip.
Swift followed up her video of an unidentified creature’s tail to reveal, as fans had expected, the mystery reptile was a snake.
The latest clip, posted on Instagram and Twitter, shows the creature’s head writhing around before snapping at the screen.
Fans delighted that she had “reclaimed the snake” after being compared to the reptile last year following a public row with Kanye West.
Taylor Swift was like, "oh you're gonna call me a snake, okay snake it is" 😂— this is me trying â´ï¸ (@__solasta) August 23, 2017
I 100% love that Taylor Swift is embracing her snake persona.— Handsome Adam Barrett (@im_adam_barrett) August 23, 2017
West was criticised for rapping “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, Why? I made that b**** famous” but insisted Swift had approved it.
She denied she had ever heard it but a video by West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, showed a phone call between the rapper and Swift which appeared to show her giving her blessing.
Adam Barrett tweeted he “100% love(s) that Taylor Swift is embracing her snake persona”.
Beau Burris wrote: “She reclaimed the snake… she knows what she’s doin I’ll give her that.”
