Taylor Swift’s dubstep-inspired track “I Knew You Were Trouble” finally has a video…and let’s just say she’s playing on the wilder side this time around.
The singer (who’s usually known for her sweet image) portrays a good girl gone bad while trying to make a tumultuous relationship with a troubled cutie work. So much so, that she even adopts an edgier outer appearance with a blunt bob with the ends of her hair dyed pink.
This video is strangely similar to Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and Lana Del Rey’s “Ride” where both singers deal with unhealthy but passionate affairs. But seeing that many of Taylor’s videos have been very fairy-tale like in the past, it’s refreshing to see her do something grittier.
(As for who the song is about, I’m still guessing John Mayer!)
