If you missed the VMAs because you were busy watching your favorite season finale or were doing something else more interesting. Then you probably missed Taylor Swift and her music video drop for ‘Look What You Made Me Do.’
Taylor Swift dropped her highly hyped video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ on Sunday night at the VMAs 2017. The video was not only hyped for the secrets it would reveal about the singers feelings towards her reputation, but also it sure puts a lot of information out into the air.
‘Look What You Made Me Do’ includes many old Swift favorites that you’ll recognize from previous music videos or moments from the singers past.
Taylor’s theme of the video – kissing her reputation and the old Taylor goodbye. The video first begins with Taylor in a cemetery playing a zombie near a headstone for her reputation.
The video then continues to go on as a battle between all the roles she’s played throughout her career. Of course, the pop star didn’t forget to add some snakes in there.
Her dancers even wear shirts emblazoned with ‘”I Westworld, but for models.” This is a direct reference to the accused criticism the singer receives as curating an air-tight squad of women to follow her wherever she goes.
When the video is over, the pop star is standing with a handful of music characters from her previous music videos. As they all stand in a direct line, some of the pop star’s events are unfolded through the characters.
To end the video, the pop star’s iconic character says, “I’d like to be excluded from this narrative.” The line was previously made famous on her Instagram.
As for the VMAs 2017 Katy Perry saved herself from announcing the pop star’s nomination for best collaboration. As the star wins the VMA for best collaboration with Zayn Malik for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” (Fifty Shades Darker).
After the two stars have their names called for the VMA, the song’s co-writers Jack Antoff and Sam Dew took to the stage to accept the Moon Person trophy on Swift’s behalf.
