Everyone is buzzing about the best music video of Taylor Swift so far!!!
In this article I would like to discuss a few details and news surrounding her and this video.
The most spoken about subject is the racism that everyone is ranting about. I must say… people are blowing this way out of proportion. They claim that the video (or rather Taylor Swift) is racist because of the lack or rather the absence of black people in the video. Firstly I am from Africa and in the Kalahari and where the wild animals roam there isn’t any black people. Also, I would like to point out that all the people making a fuss about this, never even saw the plains of Africa. Neither saw a live African animal. Another point I would like to make is that in the 50’s the Hollywood actors would go to exotic places and make a film. IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE!!! You don’t see black people walking with the lions, do you??? Also, if that is racist, I would demand to see more white people in other R&B and rap videos.
Now on the lighter side. There is speculation that the lion featured in the video is a symbol of Calvin Harris (Taylor’s boyfriend) to make a sneak peak. Calvin changed his picture on his Twitter account to what seems like the same lion that is used in the video.
The actor, Scott Eastwood is the youngest son of the well-known Clint Eastwood. When starting off in the acting scene, he used his mother’s surname when auditioning, because he wanted to be recognized for his talents, rather than his name. He played the leading actor in Nicholas Spark’s, the Longest Ride.
A few people working at a zoo made a funny video where they posed like Taylor in front of a lion and sitting on a plane. They invited Taylor Swift to come and visit the zoo. See the video here:
