Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ Music Video Debuts at VMAs (Watch)
Taylor Swift debuted an aggressive new era with her new single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” on Thursday night. The music video for the song, released Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards, makes it very clear: this is a very different Swift we’re dealing with.
In the video, she rises from the dead, quite literally, as a zombiefied version of the pop star crawls from the grave. It then gets much more glamorous, as Swift bathes in a tub of diamonds before cutting to a shot of her on a golden throne, snakes popping up behind her.
Swift ended the video with a bit that included every iteration of herself — from her innocent first album to her infamous 2009 VMAs appearance (where Kanye West interrupted her win to talk up Beyonce) to her new, edgy self.
