Taylor Swift Tries to Convince You She's a Badass Rocker in New Video

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.


me: well its like [Rihanna's] "we found love" but not as gritty
Dodai: trouble = playing pool. that is the plot of the music man, right?

Also, "Rob [Pattinson] is a laid-back guy, but he is starting to find Kristen's grungy habits a turn off. She rarely washes her hair, only brushes her teeth once a day at best, and very rarely wears perfume." To which I would respond: it's bad for your hair to wash it too often, perfume can be really overwhelming and yucky, and—yeah, that is pretty gross about the tooth brushing.
