So a monumental event took place today: Taylor Swift released a new song, details of her new album 1989 and for a contest which we don't really care about enough to explain here. We're pretty sure you can Google it. She dropped a new video for the song, and the reason we're paying attention is that it was directed by Mark Romanek ("One Hour Photo," "Never Let Me Go").

Taylor Swift Shake It Off

So a monumental event took place today: Taylor Swift released a new song, details of her new album 1989 and for a contest which we don't really care about enough to explain here. We're pretty sure you can Google it. She dropped a new video for the song, and the reason we're paying attention is that it was directed by Mark Romanek ("One Hour Photo," "Never Let Me Go").

The spot for "Shake It Off" finds Swift playfully poking fun at her contemporaries like Lady Gaga and Lily Allen, and there also seems to be some "Black Swan" nods in here too. At any rate, watch below, and we'll admit, it's a helluva earworm.
