After reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with her haters-gonna-hate track “Shake It Off,” Taylor Swift released an “outtakes” video of the shoot. But don’t expect too many pratfalls from Swift.
Billboard reported today that the already ubiquitous “Shake It Off” debuted in first place, beating out Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” which came in second. The news prompted Swift to tweet: “I can’t thank radio and you all enough for the Hot 100 #1! But I can give you this video of Shake It Off outtakes.”
The outtakes video, which is apparently just the first of multiple videos to be released, is a behind the scenes look into the making of the divisive “Shake It Off” rather than a blooper reel. In fact, Swift appears more put-together here talking about her theories on coolness than she does in the actual music video, which features her goofily trying to keep up with professional dancers. The outtakes do, however, reveal some new information about Swift. What the world learned about Swift today: Selling “millions of records” doesn’t make her “feel cool,” she hates running, and she makes this face.
