Listen: Taylor Swift sticks it to her haters with 'You Need to Calm Down'

Taylor Swift has a special message for her haters - you need to calm down because snakes and stones don't break her bones!

If Taylor Swift's haters didn't get the message when she dropped her hit album, 'Reputation' in 2017, then they certainly will be shaking after the release of her new single, 'You Need to Calm Down'.

The 29-year-old is calling out keyboard warriors who bully people online with their mean comments. 

"Say it in the street, that's a knock-out / But you say it in a Tweet, that's a cop-out," she sings.

But T-Swizzle makes it very clear that "stressin' and obsessin'" about people you don't know is "no fun". 

We heard that.

Taylor's new single could not have come at a better time. She dropped the song during Pride Month and gave a shout out to the LGBT community.

"Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD? (You could be GLAAD)
Sunshine on the street at the parade
But you would rather be in the dark ages
Makin' that sign must've taken all night"

She added "'cause shade never made anybody less gay" to really drive home the message.

Earlier this month, Taylor, whose single 'Me!' is currently at number two on the East Coast Radio Top 40 chart, made a "generous" donation to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

 We love a queen who supports gay pride. All hail, Queen T.
