Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ Video Teased in Short, But Intriguing, Clip
It’s almost time for Taylor Swift to release her 23rd music video, which will capture one of her latest hits, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble.’ The clip won’t premiere until 4:40PM ET today, Thursday, but in the meantime, you can watch the this teaser clip to psyche yourself up for the main event.
Here, we find Swift either passed out or sleeping — it’s hard to tell which — on the ground in the middle of a field covered with trash, likely after a party. She looks around her, confused and incredulous at where she has landed.
While we’re used to Swift sporting long, flowy locks, in this ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ clip, she is wearing a blunt, shoulder-length cut with pink dip-dyed tips. She slowly stands up as black and white clips of her fans cheering at a concert cuts in and out.
Just when the clip is about to show you the full story, it cuts off and flashes a reminder that the ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ video will air in full later today. The debut of the video is one small — OK, kind of big — part of Ms. Swift’s 23rd birthday. This entire week, MTV has been celebrating all things Swift by airing the 22 videos she has already released, as well as some other promotional material. The 23rd music video of her career with help her ring in her 23rd birthday.
“This video is edgy because the narrative of it is edgy” Swift told MTV. “The song sounds different than anything else I’ve ever done before, so I thought why not make this video unlike anything we’ve done before.”
From what we can tell, the clip is going to be pretty ominous, just like the song. Check back to Taste of Country for the full video.
