Check out Taylor Swift's awkward yet fun dancing and lyrics in this new music video!
During a recent Yahoo! live stream, Taylor Swift announced a new album then unveiled a new song along with an accompanying music video. "Shake It Off" is a hysterical, strange and honestly... awesome music video! Swift takes on her critics with fun pop lyrics and showcases an incredible assortment of dance styles, with her dancing awkwardly along to all of them.
The Grammy winner’s new video is complete with drums, super catchy horns but no sign of country singing or her handy guitar.
The likable single is about not caring about the "haters" or what anyone says about you. On why she wrote the song, Swift said, "People can say whatever they want about us, at any time and we cannot control that. The only thing we can control is our reaction to that."
Sources say the video also features some of her very lucky fans picked from social media, dancing their hearts out with the country gal.
The lyrics references everyone from Gwen Stefani (with her cheerleading get up and "hella good" lyric) to Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas to even Skrillex, with his oversized black glasses.
In addition to the song and crazy video, her upcoming fifth album is set to be released on October 27th, called "1989." It is said to be inspired by 80’s pop music, of which she’s been listening to a lot of lately. It’s an entirely different genre for her and we can’t wait to hear it and awkwardly boogie right along with her!
