Taylor Swift is one of the biggest selling artists on the planet and since I’m not her biggest fan, I thought I’d give you my take on her new video and let you decide if you like it or not.
Swift’s latest release is entitled “Bejeweled” and it has quickly raced up the charts (with over 15 million views in its first two days). It’s a take on the Cinderella story, with popular actress Laura Dern as the Evil Stepmother and Swift as the magical princess. It’s certainly creative and, given the lyrics to the song, actually appropriate.
I probably would have liked it better if the nasty-stepsister intro was less crass, but I have no idea what all the “easter eggs” (items with hidden meaning) are so maybe I’m not a good judge. I just don’t think it’s that great–but apparently the Swifties (Taylor’s fans) think it’s a great inspiration for Halloween costumes, so there’s that.
Watch the video below and let me know in the comments whether you think I’m right or wrong.
