Why Taylor Swift’s “Delicate” Music Video is Her Best Yet!

Taylor Swift‘s reputation has never been worse, but she’s never been better. Swift recently dropped the music video for “Delicate” the 5th track off her album Reputation. It’s also the most vulnerable song on the album, isn’t it?

You’ll hear many things about the video from naysayers who always try to tear her down, thus enter the first scene of the video. Swift is lost in her mind, not smiling or seemingly happy, but then proceeds to do an interview where she shows the camera all is well. That’s not to say that everything about being in the spotlight is bad. But at this point, she’s probably had enough, which is why she hasn’t been in the media for a very long time. It’s draining and no matter what she does, everything always gets twisted and turned to suit someone else.



You see, the media attention isn’t necessary for Swift to do well. She already set records with her latest album Reputation which sold over a million copies its first week. She broke the YouTube record and she is out there, not delivering one single interview but living her life and this video is a perfect example of that.


Swift receives a magical note, and we can assume it says “Dive bar on the east side where you at? Come here, you can meet me in the back.” We then see her walking through a lobby and everyone is staring at her but they can’t get near her because she is surrounded by four bodyguards. This is what her life has become, because as we see next, when she does get up close and personal, taking pictures with fans, she gets attacked by a crazy person.


So in her life she has to try to go about daily tasks at a distance from everybody else. Even her bodyguards are in sync with her, when she takes a step back or forward. Imagine that kind of loneliness. Sure, you’re on top of the world, but no one else is able to be around you. That is where the sad, vulnerable part of this song is seen in this video. The song in its entirety is vulnerable, opening yourself up to someone new, but the video (as a lot of videos do) show that in a different way. In the “Delicate” music video, we get a glimpse of her vulnerability and the safeguards she uses until she realizes that she has become invisible. (Note, I don’t think her becoming invisible symbolizes that she doesn’t matter anymore, but rather what her life can be like outside of the public eye). No one can see her. Not even her bodyguards. So she throws off her heels and dances around the town, she even dances in the rain, in her best dress “Fearless.”


Say what you want about Swift’s dance moves, they were fun and quirky and had personality just like her. She’s not putting out an audition tape and she’s not trying to prove anything, except that she’s living her best carefree life.



At the end (spoiler alert!), she’s able to escape to that Dive Bar, and she’s back in the real world again. She’s visible (with her sparkling note and all) , but it doesn’t matter, because she doesn’t see anything else but him. It’s safe to assume, he made her a drink. 🙂



So if you want to get a glimpse of the real Taylor, when the cameras have stopped rolling, check out her latest music video for “Delicate”” and see why you can like her for her.



Bonus! Swift shared rehearsal videos which you can watch below!

Also, see if you can spot the references in the video with graffiti:

Taylor Swift’s Next Single “Delicate” Hits Radio Next Week!

Taylor Swift‘s 4th single off Reputation is “Delicate!” Isn’t it, isn’t it? The album’s first single “Look What You Made Me Do” shot to #1 on the Hot 100 for three weeks and also reached #1 on the Top 40! “…Ready For It?” went on to hit the top 10 and “End Game” featuring Ed Sheeran and Future reached the top 15.


A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

“Delicate” was named the #1 song of 2017 by Rollingstone, saying “Is it cool that I said all that?” – oh, so now she asks us. After 10 years of brazen overshares, Taylor turns this breathy vocoder whisper into a hyper-emotional love song that feels intimate and massive at the same time, flowing like an impulsive confession though it’s meticulously put together. Her voice disappears into the groove, as she slips off for a late-night rendezvous. (Bonus detail: Tay has no idea how bars work. You don’t send your date to make you a drink; the bartender fixes it while your date stands there feeling stupid and you check your phone looking bored. Welcome to hanging out in dive bars, Tay – you’re going to love it!) At heart, “Delicate” is a story about a girl in her room, hearing an electro-beat that lures her to go seek some scandalous adventures in the city lights. In other words, the story of pop music.”

“Delicate” is set to impact Pop Radio March 12-13 and has been named the most vulnerable and emotional song on the album by Swift.

Since “Delicate” isn’t the typical pop banger, it will be interesting to see what kind of life it takes. It’s a risky choice since it’s more emotional and not as fast paced as a lot of the other music out there right now, but that might also be what’s needed to set it a part and be a nice change of pace. There is a lot of depth missing in Pop Music, so it will be refreshing to have a more emotional song to connect to. After all, Sheeran’s music has been doing extremely well and he is very in tune with his emotions.

During the chorus of “Delicate” Swift sings,

“Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it chill that you’re in my head?
‘Cause I know that it’s delicate (delicate)
Is it cool that I said all that?
Is it too soon to do this yet?
‘Cause I know that it’s delicate
Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it?
Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it?
Isn’t it delicate?”

The music video for “Delicate” comes out this sunday, March 11 during the iHeartRadio Awards. Look for it to follow on you tube afterwards! Swift posted a teaser to her socials!

The country singer curates an array of Country, Western and vintage shopping vendors

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 26, 2018) – New to this year, Stagecoach introduces The Bazaar featuring Nikki Lane’s Stage Stop Marketplace which will be open all weekend long, April 27 through April 29. Having performed in 2015 and again in 2017, Nikki Lane now brings her Nashville style and vintage flare to the festival to curate a marketplace of merchandise and highlight vintage goods ranging from art, clothing and accessories.

“Curating the Stage Stop Marketplace is the perfect way for me to blend my love for country music with my love for vintage western wear and American made products,” says Nikki Lane. “All of the vendors are hardworking small business owners working to maintain integrity and authenticity with regard to how they dress and live.”


Together alongside like-minded merchants, Nikki’s Stage Stop Marketplace will allow fans access to deep dive their eclectic styles and country-inspired fashion. Additionally, Nikki and friends will be surprising attendees throughout the weekend with pop-up, acoustic performances right inside the Marketplace.

A shopper’s haven, the Stage Stop Marketplace will include Nikki’s curated vendors, such as High Class Hillbilly, Lone Hawk Hats, Honeywood Vintage, and Bandit Brand.

“Attendees can expect to see unique items of all kinds,” continues Nikki, “such as perfectly distressed blue jeans, cowboy boots, and rock and roll t-shirts layered with enough old turquoise to sink a ship; all curated by vintage dealers from all over the US.”

Beyond Nikki’s Stage Stop Marketplace, and into the surrounding Bazaar, there will be over 35 vendor booths including returning favorites and Stagecoach newbies showcasing their wares. Vendors such as Bycila, Cake and Punch, Calico Hats, Naytures Empire, Trails Clothing, Wallet Buckle and more to be announced will be featuring country clothing, western hats, cowboy boots, belt buckles, boot straps, leather utility belts, handmade fresh flower crowns and more.

This year’s Stagecoach will feature headliners – multi-platinum duo Florida Georgia Line, four-time Grammy Award winning Keith Urban, and a rare festival appearance by Garth Brooks – and performances by Lee Brice, Jake Owen, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini and others. New to the festival this year, Stagecoach will introduce SiriusXM Spotlight Stage which will showcase country music’s freshest finds with up close performances starting at noon each day. Also, returning to the festival is the air-conditioned HonkyTonk Dance Hall and the kid-friendly Half-Pint Hootenanny.

Top 5-and-rising “Legends” is the lead single off the 12-track compilation – all written or co-written by Ballerini. She’s currently on THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR, following her sold-out first headlining tour, THE FIRST TIME TOUR (2016).

Praised by The New York Times as an “elegant songwriter,” Ballerini has received the esteemed ASCAP Vanguard Award, CMT’s Impact Award after being chosen to be a part of CMT’s Next Women of Country, Nashville Business Journal’s Artist of The Year, ACM Honor’s Gene Weed Milestone Award, iHeartRadio Music Award for Best New Country Artist, ACM Award for New Female Vocalist of the Year (2016), ACCA Award for Breakthrough Female of the Year (2016), multiple Radio Disney Music Awards, and Billboard’s Rising Star title at the prestigious 2015 Women in Music event.
