Taylor Swift looks to be back in action! Keep reading for my latest review of the music video.
As you can tell, Mrs. Swift looks to be in full bitch mode in what is no doubt a fuck you to all of the haters who have dismissed her career as mere fluff.
I’ll admit it right now–I have a very teenish crush on this beautiful artist, one that verges on an almost teacher-pupil relationship. At the tender age of 27, Mrs. Swift feels like a younger sister just now reaching the heights of what maturity and hindsight bring.
Which is evident by the video. Featuring a slick production by Joseph Kahn, longtime video collaborator of the celebrated artist, Swift looks to stick her thumb up in the air at all of the people who doubt her credibility.
Which is a shame really, because what most people consider pop drivel is actually pretty intricate in regards to technical production and overall ambiance of sound.
I’ve written extensively about Swift in the past, most notable being my review of her very addictive album 1989, and am the first to jump in the front lines and defend what I think to be the most honest and sincere celebrity lending her vocals to the video art platform.
Which is a long way of saying, I absolutely adore this music video.
If you jump in and pay attention, Swift pokes fun at her own celebrity images in what are undoubtedly caricatures of all of her public facades, including my own personal favorite “nerd girl Swift”.
And while the video feels like a ripoff of a Robert Rodriguez backyard production, I have to say, visually it’s stunning.
