People are loving Taylor Swift's faces in her new 'Delicate' video

13 March 2018

Taylor Swift just dropped her brand-new music video for "Delicate" at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and we think that we speak for everyone when we say... it was not at all what we expected!

The pop star dances her way through her hotel and rainy streets to finally arrive at a dive bar, to meet what appears to be her crush, but that is left up to interpretation. However, while Swift becomes invisible in her video, Qualley gains the power of flight, and the ability to shoot destructive lasers from her hands. The video takes a twist when she discovers a magical note that renders her invisible to everyone around her.

The "Delicate" clip-promoting the sixth single from Reputation-is remarkably entertaining, but its visuals have struck some viewers as oddly familiar. Until, that is, the singer emerged hand-in-hand with boyfriend Joe Alwyn in an incredibly rare public outing-a Malibu hike no less. The "Blank Space" singer then indulges in quirky dance moves that include marching atop hotel reception, waltzing into a subway station, splashing in the rain, basically shaking it off everywhere! She practices her happy face in the mirror, and goofs off, contorting her mug into a spastic grin before she's interrupted. The carefree dancing and ultimate ending of the song represent Swift's journey towards embracing herself and sharing that with the world. How can someone see past your superficial reputation, to the person you really are?

"Raw Taylor is better than polished Taylor", one wrote, while another noted "That smile at the beginning/end melted me!" At the beginning of 2018, she is getting ready for her massive world tour which drives in May. "Delicate" ends, joyful but unresolved, on a chorus of questions: "Is it cool that I said all that?/ Is it too soon to do this yet?/ 'Cause I know that it's delicate/ Isn't it?"
