Watch This Now: Taylor Swift – “Mean”

“Someday, I’ll be living in a big old city…”

Good morning! Welcome back to another week here on the blog, and I hope you’re feeling as good as I am right now. Yes, the weather’s a little bit shit, but we can persevere through that! Especially when I’ve got some super-sweet new videos to show you – and I’d like to start off with the divine Taylor Swift. Although a lot of people might see her as a bit naff, I’ve always taken a bit of a shining to her earnest, sweet pop songs that always seem to have a happy ending about them. She’s got some great videos in her archive, too – I maintain that You Belong With Me is one of the best pop videos of the 2000s. So what’s she doing this time around? Simple, really – cementing her status as a great role model for young girls.

In this scenario, the clip goes through a handful of mistreated girls – Swift herself included – and shows how they end up being the better person for not letting it get to them. It’s a very cute video that’s also well-executed and smoothly shot, certain to put a smile on the faces of TS fans of all ages. When many female popstars want to fuck, Swift just wants to hold hands – and that’s just fine, especially when she keeps making these sweet videos.
