After years of having her love life plastered across magazine covers, her love songs over-analyzed by bored gossip journalists, and her dance moves mocked by, well, everyone — Taylor Swift is revealing her method for dealing with the "players," the "haters" and the "fakers": "Shake It Off."
That's the name of Swift's infectious (or annoying, depending on who you ask) first single from her upcoming album. Swift unveiled the song and its accompanying music video on Monday during a Yahoo live-stream event in New York City. The singer-songwriter also revealed the title for her highly anticipated fifth studio album, 1989, which comes out Oct. 27.
However, Swift fanatics should be warned that although catchy, "Shake It Off" is a far cry from the love ballads and country-pop tunes that made her famous. The video, directed by Mark Romanek, is also a big departure from her previous, more cinematic and romantic clips. In the video, Swift plays dress-up in several different eye-popping outfits including a leotard and tutu, a Lady Gaga-esque shiny gold ensemble and acid wash jean shorts complete with a leopard-print jacket and gold chains. Don't say we didn't warn you.
