Mark Romanek, the director of Taylor Swift's new video for "Shake it Off," has responded to Earl Sweatshirt's claims that the video was "inherently offensive."

Earl Sweatshirt has revealed the collaborators on his upcoming album. But that's not all he's revealed:
Quote"Im just trying to make pretty music. Everyone whose favorite song off EARL was epar or whatever might be pretty bummed. Everyone with 666 or KTA or some sort of stupid hashtag like “hey look im crazy” in their bio might be pretty bummed too. I anticipate a loss of fans. I also anticipate gaining some… I hope I lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me cause I rapped about raping girls when i was 15."
