From the opening scenes of Taylor Swift’s epic six minute new video clip, it looks as though she’s stumbled onto the set of P!nk’s ‘Funhouse’ video. But through the memories and flashbacks that she experiences as she awakens and her narration, it’s clear that all is not what it seems and that a long and complicated backstory has got her to where she is right now. Thankfully, there are four more minutes of the clip to bring us up to speed.
It’s all about the bad boy and his charms that she fell for, the passion that burned, how those same characteristics started to grate and how they as an item ultimately fell apart. We’ve all been there, right? No wonder she’s selling tunes by the bucketload.
