With sales nearing 1 million in its first weekend, there’s no doubt that Taylor Swift‘s Reputation is making its mark. Just in case reviews from critics and all the love from fans haven’t brought you on board yet, even more high praise has been delivered … by Spencer Pratt.
Although Pratt — who is now married to Heidi Montag, and a dad — was infamously pegged as the villain on the MTV reality series The Hills earlier in the 2000s, he’s now coming up with some pretty good lines about Swift’s new music.
“I’m riding Taylor so hard lately because fools are on the timeline hating on her like Spencer 2009,” he said on Snapchat, explaining his loyalty to Swift in 2017 during a track-by-track review of her album. “I’m telling you, the last time I saw this type of hate was targeted at me. When did Taylor become as hated as Spencer Pratt?”
Check out his five biggest compliments about Reputation below.
On “In the middle of the night, in my dreams/ You should see the things we do, baby” (from “…Ready for It?”): “I’ve heard it now a thousand times and every time it makes me sing to the clouds. That is poetic, like some shit Robert Frost would have been writing back in the day.”
On the Future/Ed Sheeran collaboration “End Game”: “I don’t need Taylor to be on any records with anybody, just like I wouldn’t need Michael Jackson to be on a record with somebody.”
On her commitment to her craft and making a potential hit like “I Did Something Bad”: “I have no idea why people hate on Taylor. Because she wants to have a really good image? Because she didn’t go out like Katy Perry and act like she’s some damn politician in the media? I don’t know wanna know who Taylor votes for. I don’t care. I wanna hear hit damn records out of her and that’s it.”
On the slow jam “Dress”: “I hope she told her mom and dad, ‘Don’t listen to this one.’ At 0:49 when she starts doing the pant-y breathing? I think that’s one of her best moments of singing. That hits my fricking holy damn spirit.”
On the lyrics of “Call It What You Want”: “‘Call It What You Want’ is just beyond beautiful. My homie that does not listen to pop, he said, ‘Man, those lyrics are like straight trap lyrics.’ The lyrical swag in this one, just like, ‘Brought a knife to a gunfight,’ ‘All the liars are calling me one’ — those lyrics right there will go down forever to me.”
In an honorable mention, Spencer Pratt even had some extra praise for Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn, for inspiring much of Reputation‘s material: “I need to do more research about Joe because this guy is frickin’ Romeo on steroids. He’s got Taylor so damn sprung it’s overwhelming. I feel like she just made her own Ex Machina robot Ava, but Joe. She went to the mountains to live next to the waterfall and had Google make her a boyfriend.”
