American sweetheart and country/pop singer

Taylor Swift

released a new video from her latest album 1989 for a song called Blank Space. With what is definitely the best comeback ever, she plays a psychotic girlfriend in the video, something the media has often projected her to be.

The video, which already has more than 6 million views in less than a day, begins with her falling in love with a man. She sings 'look at that face, you look like my next mistake.' They dance in fancy ballroom gowns and tuxedos, go on picnics, go horse riding and do everything that is expected of a Taylor Swift love affair.


But the lyrics offer a gentle warning, 'Got a long list of ex-lovers/ They'll tell you I'm insane/ Cause you know I love the players/ And you love the game.'

Things hit the fan when she finds him texting someone else and smiling. This was enough to launch her into the crazy, jealous girlfriend mode that she stabs cakes, poisons apples and crushes cars with golf clubs. This is when she reveals in her lyrics 'darling I am a nightmare, dressed like a daydream.'

The lyrics are hilarious and are a satire on her image in the media as a rich brat who changes men in her life like she would change her handbags. Here's the video, check it out:
