While I am not a part of Taylor Nation, I am a fan of Taylor Swift. Her career just keeps blossoming from era to era.
Taylor’s latest single for “Wildest Dreams” gets a gorgeous visual to accompany the equally beautiful song. I can definitely get behind a music video that you can pause at almost any part and it looks like it belongs in the September issue of Vogue. Yeah, I know I just posted about Miley Cyrus’ new video and its actually a perfect example of how different mainstream artists are. While I can’t say Miley doesn’t care about her career, it just appears that way.
Here’s how I see it: Miley has accomplished so much already and has made more money than any person could ever need in a lifetime, so she feels that she can “experiment” with her music and be camp, silly, and really not take it seriously. Taylor Swift on the other hand is busy defining what it is to be a pop star. Catchy hooks, relatable lyrics, engaging music videos, and just downright letting her fans know that she knows they exist by giving them EVERYTHING; fabulous music videos and lavish live performances just to name the a few major ones.
I’ll stop gabbing. Watch below.
Side-note: It seems like this video would have gone great with “Style” too, you know, because of the James Dean line and how styled the video is.
“My back is aching, my bra too tight, my booty shaking from the left to the right.” Pretty much that’s what I say on a regular basis. You’re welcome Ciara.
So, I remember writing Ciara off a few weeks ago, telling her that she isn’t Aaliyah, yadda, yadda, yadda. Then, I see that she has a new music video that was released for her second single “Got Me Good.” Okay, I’ll watch the first 30 seconds, then listen to the song as I catch up on my pop culture. The crisp visual of the video, the choreography, the hair, her body the music, the beat, and bra’s being too tight all caught my attention at once. Ciara and director Joseph Kahn are very generous with the outstanding visuals I just watched. The subtle editing tricks made me rewind the video on my favorite parts, then I re-watched the whole video.
Not only am I hyped up about the song and video, I Googled information on Ciara’s forthcoming album “One Woman Army” and its due December 4th. I need an iTunes quality download of “Got Me Good” the day before yesterday. I am definitely going to twerk in front of the mirrored closets in my house with my mouth open, in my gym shorts that are going to be rolled up to the bottom of my butt and all the while, I will hear my ankle and knees crack because mama’s not built to be a dancer. I’m mama.
