Taylor Swift Debuts Fun-Filled Video for “22” on GMA, Starring Her “Real-Life Best Friends[VIDEO]
Noting that it’s March 13 and 13, as most fans know, is her lucky number, Taylor Swift debuted her new video for “22” on ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday. In a pre-recorded intro, the singer said she’d never had more fun shooting a video because it stars all her “real-life best friends.”
The low-key video opens with Taylor wearing a t-shirt proclaiming, “Not a lot going on at the moment”, not true at all for the ever-busy Ms. Swift and sporting a hat and shorts. Then, she’s in what looks like a kitchen with a bunch of girls, picking at the remains of some sort of celebratory cake; there’s also a tower of champagne glasses filed with red liquid.
Next, Taylor’s seen hanging at the pool with her girls, and playing cheerleader with a megaphone while her friends shake pom-poms in the background and dance aground. They also briefly do the Britney Spears “Oops…I Did It Again” “heartbeat” dance move.
Taylor and the girls then head down to the beach, the clip was filmed in Malibu last month — while she sings, “We’re happy, free, confused and lonely in the best way/It’s miserable and magical, oh yeah!” Lots of jumping on a trampoline is also involved.
Later, Taylor and the girls primp and get ready to hit the town with Taylor putting on cat ears, for some reason and they all end up at a raucous house party. At the end, Taylor throws herself into a swimming pool, fully clothed, as her friends cheer. In other words, it’s just a normal day in the life of a 23-year-old global music superstar.
