I held off as long as I could. I heard so much about this new Taylor Swift song – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together but I resisted listening to it for as long as I could until this weekend I was on iTunes downloading some new music and I had to listen to it. Because for the most part I like Swifty’s music, it’s just her over-earnestness that drives me a bit nuts. Well once I listened to it that was it – I was hooked. Because it’s really, really catchy. And it’s kind of a fun game trying to figure out what former celebrity she’s dated that she’s writing about. Like, is it Joe Jonas? Is it Jake Gyllenhaal? Who knows? It’s a fun game though. Like I could spend the better half of a day googling her ex-boyfriends and trying to figure out what song is written about what ex.
Taylor released the video for her new song and it’s definitely, um, interesting. She shot it in 1 take and the only part that confuses me is the band dressed up in animal costumes. Especially the 1:55 mark. Seriously – I can’t look away. Don’t they remind you of that The Bloodhound Gang video for The Bad Touch? Google it. Then there’s her style issue again. I just don’t get it. I don’t get that she’s dressed like a 1950′s housewife in the final scene when it’s a party scene. Why? Have a look and try to get this song out of your head for the rest of the day:)
