The real meaning behind Taylor Swift's 'Delicate' video

Taylor Swift has been accused of lifting elements from director Spike Jonze's 2016 Kenzo perfume commercial for her new music video. Meanwhile, New York Magazine's senior producer Kenny Wassus remarked, "taylor's "delicate" video is the drunk sorority knockoff of the kenzo ad w (with) margaret quailey (sic)", before going one step further and highlighting certain scenes from both videos to illustrate his point, checking off similarities like, "silly wink faces", "angry gorilla dance", and "ballet leap".

Taylor Swift has won the iHeartRadio Music Award for Female Artist of the Year, but the 28-year-old actress was absent during the awards. Though she was not present there in person but in a pre-taped video, Swift said "Hey guys, I just wanted to say thank you so much for this award".

Set mostly in Los Angeles' Millennium Biltmore Hotel - built in 1923, it was the early home to the Oscars ceremony - the video also sees Taylor run through Metro Center, which is Los Angeles' downtown hub, and of course the Golden Gopher where she is finally seen again. This is the most direct song about her own reputation.

Drifting away from the more bombastic songs in the "reputation" album, Swift wanted "Delicate" to be more emotional and vulnerable.

In the clip, Swift arrives at an event surrounded by her usual entourage, giving a red carpet interview and dealing with the trappings of fame. The sample lyric of the song says, "My reputation's never been worse, so you must like me for me". Then she is being escorted by four securities to the bathroom. But you will definitely enjoy watching the video.
