Taylor Swift proves she can do no wrong by pulling off the seemingly impossible task of making an entertaining and engaging live video. Yes, “Red” is pieced together from concert footage but it is done in a way that feels cinematic and stylish. The 23-year-old country-pop icon embraces her inner-rock chick, whipping her golden mane and riffing on the guitar like the lead singer in an ’80s hair band.
While many fans might have been hoping for another epic visual in the vein of “I Knew You Were Trouble”, taking the live approach for the title track of her mega-selling opus turns out to be wise move. If only for the fact that you will be even more excited to buy her Red concert DVD after seeing it.
Does Taylor’s latest video live up to your expectations? Spill the beans in the comments.
