America's golden daughter Taylor Swift, who turned 23 yesterday, is growing up and wants to prove it. Subsequently, she copped some rocker shit (stringy pink-tipped wig! Taylor Momsen eye makeup!) for the brand-new "I Knew You Were Trouble" video, which features some bubblegum Sid and Nancyish antics opposite the guy from Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark, Reeve Carney. Said antics take place in a public bathroom, some hotel rooms meant to be "grungy" (but I've totally slept in that caliber of room on family vacations :/) and some playing of billiards that is meant to indicate that He's A Rebel, And He'll Never Ever Be Any Good. In case we didn't get it, he also wears Negligible Father Figure suspenders and a Problem with Authority fedora.

Dodai: trouble = playing pool. that is the plot of the music man, right?
Her brand new English mini-heartthrob boyfriend Harry Styles bought her 23 cupcakes. [E!]
And her bestie Selena Gomez got together a coterie of girls to dance to the song in what apparently is a choreographed routine (though you coulda fooled me). [YouTube]
