Taylor Swift has a split personality in a new video for her song “Blank Space.” One is a “daydream,” the other a “nightmare” and she turns on a dime from a playful lover into a fatal attraction.
The song is a play on tabloid reports about her reputation as a man-eater and the many boyfriends who have passed in and out of her life since she shot to fame.
In the video, she’s the ultimate catch, wealthy, young and beautiful. A gorgeous man drives onto her estate in a high-end sports car and they begin a beautiful romance. “Nice to meet you, where you been. I can show you incredible things,” she sings.
But love’s a game: “Wanna play?”
Taylor wines and dines her beau. For some reason, the lyrics seem to conjure her summer fling with Kennedy scion Conor Kennedy, the son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Just when things seemed to heat up, Kennedy cousins, Maria Shriver, 56, and Caroline Kennedy, 54, both reportedly tried to end it, because they thought Taylor was moving in on their barely-legal nephew way too fast.
She ended up dumping him and reportedly broke his heart.
In this case, Taylor flies off the handle after she catches her boyfriend apparently texting another woman.
“Screaming, crying, perfect storms, I can make all the tables turn,” she sings. “Darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream.”
Taylor pulls a perfect “Fatal Attraction,” like the 1987 Glenn Close, Michael Douglas movie. She trashes his clothes, slashes his portrait and bashes his exotic sports car. She even flashes a butcher knife.
The video is lavishing produced with sky-high production values.
