Taylor Swift premiered the “Look EVERYTHING YOU Made Me Do” music video recording at the 2017 MTV Video recording Music Awards over the weekend. Inside the training video, the 27-year-old pop vocalist commences as a corpse a la Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” She comes home to life and digs herself out of any grave. Who put her there is certainly debatable, especially because the training video ends with Swift conquering herself. Still, the video is rife with humor and symbolism, and among the finest parts happens at the end when Swift takes on several versions of herself. Swift’s supporters on social cherished the sequence and could not stop publishing about it. For example, this fan “choked” because it was such a funny tad. Take a look:

Another fan praised the collection and described the multiple variations as Taylor Swift’s self-deprecating way to get back her story. Based on the fan:
TAYLOR SWIFT JUST MADE EVERY JOKE AGAINST HER INTO A BIG JOKE AGAINST EVERYONE ELSE I LITERALLY………CANNOT FIND MY WIG

Perhaps Taylor Swift was revealing her rivals (and her previous personal), “I am silicone, and you are glue.” This fan strike the nail on the head, tweeting:
BUT THE ENDING GUYS. I'M DEAD. Nobody shades Taylor Swift better than Taylor Swift does.

At one point in the music video, which is currently online, a self-aware, late-twenties Taylor Swift stands on a pile of the past Taylors. The image seems to symbolize how Swift has turn out together with her life. It’s a theme Britney Spears used a few ways in her “Hold It Against Me” music video recording in 2011. It is a cheeky yet powerful image, but the best use of the past Taylors happens in the final world of the video recording. Check it out in full:
The bit starts with the many Taylor Swifts magically standing up in a line. “You Belong to Me” girl-next-door Taylor makes a astonished face because they’re altogether, but “Look EVERYTHING YOU Made Me Do” corpse Taylor instructs her to lower it out. “Shake It Off” ballerina Taylor agrees.
Then another Taylor gestures to corpse Taylor and asks, “What’s get back bitch?” (like anybody would when located next to a zombie.) Certainly, corpse Taylor must say not to call her that, which really is a tongue-in-cheek mention of Taylor Swift speaking out against Kanye West for getting in touch with her “that bitch” in his melody “Famous.”
Next, a Fearless Tour-era Taylor Swift says “Y’all” and gets psychological, but a 2012 MTV EMAs ringleader Taylor says she’s being false and playing the victim. Finally, a 2008 VMAs Taylor, the main one Kanye Western interrupted to compliment Beyonce, requires a stand. Retaining an MTV Moonman, she wants not to participate the narrative, similar from what Swift said when Kim Kardashian blasted her on communal for supposedly colluding with Kanye West to spark a controversy.
The final arena is not long, but it is full of laughs. It is always fun seeing stars in on the joke, and Taylor Swift certainly is poking fun at herself here.
