Taylor Swift – “Blank Space” Video

Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 is — in this writer’s opinion, anyway — really, really great. But I can agree with the anti-Swift brigade on one point: “Shake It Off,” the album’s first single and video, was straight trash when viewed from pretty much every conceivable angle. She’s now made another video, for the cheeky, hard-glinting album track “Blank Space,” and I’m delighted to report that the video is a vast improvement. Music-video veteran Joseph Kahn directed the clip, and it plays on Swift’s public persona in the same way the song does, portraying her as a hopeless romantic who turns psychopath man-eater at the slightest provocation. The clip also fills the frame with white horses and expensive vintage sports cars and other little-kid trappings of luxury at every available opportunity. She has a live deer just hanging out in her hallway! In fact, the whole thing basically works as a parody of Swift’s own “Love Story” video, from 2008. Watch the “Blank Space” video below.

1989 is out now on Big Machine.
