Taylor Swift Walks on the Wilder Side of Love in ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ Video
Taylor Swift‘s new video for ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ finds the country-pop cutie shedding her sugary sweet image for a walk on the wilder side of love.
She portrays a good girl gone bad, calling to mind another bad gal’s video — Rihanna‘s torturous and passionate affair in ‘We Found Love.’ Swift even includes a spoken-word intro (it seems to be the rage in videos lately, from Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Ride’ to Rih’s aforementioned clip), saying, “I think when it’s all over, it just comes back in flashes. It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories, it just all comes back… But he never does.”
The “he” is her hot, tatted co-star Reeve Carney, who plays Swift for a fool after she goes to the ends of earth trying to make their crazy relationship work. She even pulls a Sandra Dee and changes her outer appearance in hopes of pleasing her beau. It just goes to show, ladies: a guy is never worth altering your inner sense self.
