Ever had that nightmare where your ex-boyfriend and ex-friend, two of the people you bash you the most publicly, write a song together?
No? Well, Taylor Swift has and that nightmare is called real life.
The music video itself is a mix between aesthetically interesting and just weird.
The video features Katy Perry, Calvin Harris, Pharrell and Big Sean standing on a weird island that was very obviously man made in front of a green screen. They all do their own thing in the video and some do it better than others.
Katy Perry mostly lays in a field of yellow flowers but then gets up to dance and it is as awkward as always (I know lots of celebrities do not read internet comments about themselves, but is no one telling this girl that the internet has been roasting her for her dancing for months?).
Calvin Harris appears no more than five times for three-second increments in the video and I hate to say it but is anyone else really feeling this weird glasses/Hawaiian shirt vibe he is rocking?
Big Sean honestly just looked really cool throughout the whole thing and was for sure rocking the island vibe.
And Pharrell hangs out on this canoe in the middle of this man-made lake but because it’s Pharrell and he looks cool doing basically anything (remember the Smoky the Bear hat he wore to an award show a couple years back?).
And of course, because this video featured two of T. Swift’s biggest public enemies, people were quick to look out for any sign of any kind of diss.
There wasn’t much to find but some people did point out that Big Sean’s rap could have easily been about her:
G*ddamn, I know you love to make an entrance,
Do you like getting paid or getting paid attention?
You mixed the wrong guys with the right intentions,
In the same bed, but it still feel long distance,
She’s looking for a little more consistency,
But when you stop looking you gon’ find what’s meant to be,
And honestly, I’m way too done with the hoes,
I cut off all my exes for your x and o’s.
Do we just live for drama or is this legit?
Regardless, we are sure that Tay Tay is not feeling so thrilled about this collab, but we are pretty happy about it. Take a look at the video and see what you think:
