Taylor Swift just declared that her next music video is the directorial debut of actress Blake Lively. Starting in April 2021, the notable pop star has been re-releasing her initial albums with all-new recordings because the original masters were sold off and at this point don’t have a place with her. The albums have shown up with a treasure trove of exposure, featuring new tracks written in the period of every collection except never released as well as a lot of new video content. This week, on November 12, Taylor released her second re-recorded collection, Red (Taylor’s Version),
Today on her Twitter, Taylor Swift posted a short clasp of a wedding cake having a colossal hunk torn out of it. She gushed, “I finally got to work with the splendid, valiant, and devilishly entertaining [Blake Lively] on her directorial debut. Join us as we raise a toast, and a little hellfire.” This clasp is from the upcoming music video for “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault),” which looks like it will highlight Taylor performing at a wedding (presumably Blake Lively’s) the place where chaos ensues. The video will debut tomorrow, November 15, at 10 AM ET. Look at the post underneath:
Taylor Swift has made a propensity for packing her music videos with big name cameos. Her video for the 2014 single “Animosity” highlighted a full scale battle between stars like Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, and Hailee Steinfeld, who will play Kate Bishop in Hawkeye, which premieres in the not so distant future. She also cast a roster of LGBTQ celebrities in her haters-ease off anthem “You Need to Calm Down,” including Laverne Cox, Billy Porter, Ellen DeGeneres, and the Fab Five from Queer Eye.
Considering her history, it’s surprising it took her this long to collaborate with Blake Lively. Be that as it may, she’s committing to the “slow on the uptake, but still good enough” ideal by giving Lively’s fans a pristine way of seeing the star: through her own lens. It will be interesting to see if this music video kicks off a drive to coordinate more media and start a totally different section in her profession.
