It’s no surprise that we were given a music video for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” the first song from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, sang by pop stars Zayn and Taylor Swift. The internet went wild when the song was released a few weeks ago, and now there’s a new video, so the public has reason to celebrate (and/or complain) again.
Everyone keeps gushing about how sexual the new video is, but uh…. Does anyone else remember that Taylor Swift and Gigi Hadid, Zayn’s longtime girlfriend, are best friends? Remember the #squad?
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like I wouldn’t want to film that kind of steamy video with my best friend’s boyfriend. It’s clear that it’s a bit uncomfortable for Taylor and Zayn, as most of the shots are individual until the end, where they still remain as far away from each other as possible.
And I’m thinking that it’s safe to say that’s because of Taylor and Gigi’s friendship.
Let’s-celebrate-holidays-together kind of best friends. More-than-one-holiday best friends. Let’s-always-and-forever-stick-together best friends. You get the point. They’re all over each other’s Instagrams.
And while it’s a good time to poke fun at the fact that this video is a little bit of an awkward situation, obviously this isn’t a real issue – Gigi retweeted Zayn’s link to the video.
Pre-ZAYN Zayn, he spent four years in One Direction with Harry. Do you think that he felt at all awkward when he first started hanging out with Taylor through their common circles, especially after he’d witnessed Swift supposedly diss Harry at the VMAs?
Also, how is Swift doing after the recent shakeups within her clique? She’s probably not trying to rock the boat with the Hadids after the whole Bella, Selena and Weeknd debacle.
Even though the video was definitely interesting and brings up a ton of questions, it was nice to get a little bit of Taylor Swift while we sit waiting for her next album. But really, what could ever top 1989?
