In her latest music video, “Style,” Swift recreates just about every bedroom song music video cliché (there are shots of her under a sheet, running through a forest, arching her head back slowly, and looking into a broken mirror). And while she might be going for parody, it doesn’t quite read that way. If you can make it through the four-minute video, you’ll see Swift’s face about a million times (projected onto bedroom curtains, dresses, shattered mirrors, and imagined in the rearview mirror of her lover’s car), a shirtless man staring into an ocean cave, Swift caressing her body, and some weird not-quite-a-plotline plot play out. It’s palm-to-the-face stuff, and nearly impossible to watch without shuddering, unless that’s exactly what she was going for. In that case, great job Tay Tay!
