Taylor Swift spoofs the stereotypical depiction of crazed ex-girlfriends in the video for her new single ‘Blank Space’. Watch the video below, now.
The ‘Blank Space’ video was directed by Joseph Kahn and sees Swift begin a romantic relationship with a man that starts peacefully enough before going sour. The following scenes then show her smashing his car with a golf club, cutting holes in his clothes, throwing his iPhone in a fountain and destroying a painting she had previously made of him when they were happy together.
‘Blank Space’ is set to be the next single from Swift’s new album ‘1989’ following ‘Shake It Off’ and ‘Out Of The Woods’.
‘1989’ sold 1.287m copies in the US is its first week on sale, making it the best selling album since 2002 when Eminem sold over 1.3m copies of ‘The Eminem Show’. The sales figures make ‘1989’ the biggest selling album released in 2014 and the second most popular album of the year so far, behind the Frozen soundtrack (released in November 2013). Swift also sold 90,000 copies of the album in the UK, going straight to Number One in the process.
Meanwhile, Swift recently announced a trio of UK live dates as part of her ‘1989’ world tour.

Glasgow SSE Hydro (June 23)
