Late last year, Taylor Swift released her, um, reputation-furthering, rebranding effort of a sixth album Reputation. Helmed by of-the-moment producer and Fun guitarist Jack Antonoff, who also sat behind the boards of St. Vincent‘s excellent album Masseduction at about the same time, the record was essentially a hate-letter to Kanye West and a host of other perceived haters. It sold very well – two million copies worldwide in its first week – but drew attention to allegations of grudge-hoarding pettiness on its maker’s part. Now, T-Swizzle has released a music video for her sixth and newest single “Delicate”, in which her frequent collaborator Joseph Kahn tries to portray the ice queen in a more human light.
It’s essentially an apologia for Swift’s aggressively insular guise; an I’m-ordinary-too-‘cos-I-can-ditch-the-spotlight-and-do-ordinary-things-like-dance-in-the-rain move.
Watch it below and see if it changes your mind about pop’s good girl gone bad bad.
