Just in time for Pride Month, Taylor Swift has just released the music video for her new single, “You Need to Calm Down.” Aimed at her (and other artists’) critics and nay-sayers, the song is an anthem for both Swift and those who have been ostracized and spoken badly of in the media, especially the LGBTQ community. Her lyrics allude to “crowns,” “gowns,” hate speech and discrimination, but the song is a positive tune on acceptance and tolerance. To celebrate the arrival of Swift’s new music and upcoming record “Lover,” which arrives this August 23, we’ve rounded up 10 Taylor Swift inspired things that will help you “calm down” as you wait for her record to drop in 9 weeks.
1. Taylor Swift Lyric Embroidery Hoop in Rainbow
“A rainbow with all of the colors” is a lyric from Taylor Swift’s single “ME!,” which features Brendon Urie from Panic! At the Disco. The song celebrates one’s self and how unique we all are.

Its happy pastel colors mimic Swift’s new theme of bright colors, a stark contrast to her Reputation era. This hoop is perfect as an ornament or a gift to any Taylor Swift fan.
