Taylor Swift goes from sweet girlfriend to knife-wielding nightmare in new video for 'Blank Space'

Taylor Swift dropped her latest music video late yesterday, and she seems to be poking back at all of her haters.

Lots of anti-Swifters like to call Tay-Tay crazy or a psycho, pointing to her alleged long list of ex-boyfriends. She told Vanity Fair that's not true by the way, claiming she's only had two boyfriends since 2010.

Enter her new video for "Blank Space" off her '1989' album.

The Gatsby-themed video starts off showing Swift living the good life with a hunk of a guy at their mansion. At one point, she confesses to him that she's had "a long list of ex-lovers, they'll tell you I'm insane."

Mr. Hunk doesn't seem to mind. He's got a good-looking girl with whom he can ride bicycles with in the house or take for a walk in the park to carve their name into a tree.

Mr. Hunk also didn't seem to listen to her warning. We find out he might be a cheater.

"Oh my god, who is she?" you see Swift yell at him while mouthing the lyrics of the song.

Swift's character quickly goes from sweet and innocent to a very angry, scorned and possibly psychotic lover.

"Darling, I'm a nightmare dressed as a daydream," she sings.

She drops his cell phone in the pool. She takes a knife to his clothes, a golf club to his cars and even sticks a hatchet into a portrait she painted of him.

"Don't say I didn't warn you."

Since it was posted, the video has exploded on social media, getting more than 8 million views on YouTube overnight and lots of praise on Twitter.





After the video went viral, Swift made a special announcement on "Good Morning America" Tuesday: Fans can experience the video in a new interactive app.

"You essentially get to play around this story-land and explore the mansion" Swift said of the app, which has the same setting as the video.

Swift also opened up about her inspiration for the song.

"It's a song I wrote about the fact that basically the media has kind of portrayed me to be this crazy, desperate serial dater," she said. "So I decided I was just going to kind of continue the joke and take back the narrative."
