Taylor Swift\'s New Music Videos

Yup. I know what you're thinking. Do I really need to read an article by some random person, telling me about Taylor Swift's new music videos?

The answer…Nope, you don't.

Why the hell would you?

Well, entertainment, for one. Pure, unadulterated entertainment while reading something that really has no concrete value or contribution to society other than the enjoyment of knowing just that. It's pretty good. I've tried it a couple (million) times before and there have been no major consequences. No earthquakes. No hurricanes. Though sometimes some late library books.

Anyways, back to the topic at hand.

Whether you're a full-on, country-turned-pop lovin' Swifty or are wondering what a Swifty is, after seeing Taylor's sweet and gentle or upbeat and sassy music videos from her newest album, Red, you're sure to smile, nod, and share it with your friends. How can you not? I've been a T-Swizzle die-hard fan since the moment I got her first album and she has never disappointed me since.

So far, Taylor has put out five music videos from her latest album, Red. Well…six. But I don't count filming a performance then putting it out there as an actual music video, as was done with the song Red, as something legit. (I hate using the word legit. I just have no other way to explain myself. Sorry if it bothers you as much as it bothers me.) Although I did find myself getting the chills while watching it. I was pretty surprised, let me tell you. And then…I realized that I was wearing short sleeves and it was cold in the room. Oh. The song itself is gentle at first, getting more and more fiery as it moves along, and personally, one of my favorite Taylor Swift song lyrics.

Another music video that gave me chills, real ones this time, was Begin Again. Having the same director as Safe and Sound, this music video shares the sad, pensive attitude that Taylor permeated on her Hunger Games stint, though a bit less haunting and with a happier twist. The filmography that struck me the most was how T-Swizzles sitting by the water in a reserved white cardigan and hair pulled back in a ponytail evolves throughout the scenes into her standing on a rooftop in a beautiful dress with hair down.

I Knew You Were Trouble. Not much to say. It's a must watch. I would ruin it if I tried to explain it. Though do allow yourself some impatience at the over dramatization in the beginning and please wait for the music to start. Once it does, it's as Taylor sings in a different song - Sad, Beautiful, Tragic. And it sure doesn't hurt that Reeve Carney, who plays Swift's lover, is handsome as the devil. I can understand why she chose him!

22's slightly annoying and in-your-face attitude (I hate to admit this) is made just a bit better by Taylor's awkward attempts at dancing and being gangsta. Kind of like, "She's really annoying me and I want to make fun of her but it's just so pathetic and cute that I feel bad." And the song is really upbeat and has a feel good vibe to it so I'll forgive this one. Strangely enough, the director, Anthony Mandler, also directed I Knew You Were Trouble which is my favorite music video. One thing I do like that he did here though was to film in the traditional 4:3 format, unlike most music videos.

Now let's take a moment of silence for the song and music video that officially ended Swift's country career and got her right into the pop scene.

There. Done. Okay.

Now, I'm not saying she ain't country no more - in my heart, she will be forever...but We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together validated the fears, excitement, concerns, and confusion of many Swifties about the new direction of Taylor's music. Many have accepted it. Many have not. Now I'm not trying to make this sound like a tragedy has occurred here, but it's a strange change, and coming to terms with it is not easy for everyone. The music video kind of reminded me of Karmin's Crash Your Party because of the interesting scene changes and the absolute quirkiness and alice in wonderland atmosphere they both portrayed.

Now to the last music video released, Everything Has Changed. Well yes, it has. This is the first music video that does not feature Taylor as the main star. It actually has her just at the very end acting as a mother to a miniature version of herself. And really...a mother...she was just singin' about being 22 and falling in love with strangers. But hey, if that's what's gonna rake in the cash, then by all means, Producers, do your thing. Sweet. That's what I'd call this song and video. Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran mini look-alikes are just what the world needs. Nope, not being sarcastic. :) They're so gentle and lovable and the carefree innocence plays into the rise and fall of the melody like a good family movie.

Well there is it. About two minutes of "wasted" time and five (six) music videos for you to enjoy.

-Taylor
