The 10 Dorkiest Moments In Taylor Swift’s Feel-Good “Shake It Off” Video

The theme of Taylor Swift‘s perky new pop anthem “Shake It Off” is to dance like there’s no one watching and she certainly does that in the feel-good video. Literally and figuratively. The 24-year-old geeks out in a number of dance scenarios because a) she’s living in a magical fucks-free bubble and b) it’s a lot more fun than standing around and pretending to be cool.

To celebrate the return of Tay Tay, I’ve pulled together the 10 dorkiest moments in her “Shake It Off” video. These range from mildly embarrassing (dressing like Lady Gaga circa The Fame) to LOL-worthy antics like the world’s worst twerk and incompetent rhythmic gymnastics. Turn your life around by joining Taylor’s DGAF movement after the jump.

    Now do the 10 Most Racist Moments.

      @sam Finding ‘racist’ material in anything you view? Meh, you’re the racist one here

      • Sam Scarcello

        Not quite. Remember the outrage over Lily Allen’s Hard Out Here video? And she was trying to provide a commentary on the use of women of color being used as sexual objects in music videos. In Taylor’s video, they are used as props for her to ogle and you don’t see their faces once, just their asses in cut-off jeans. Meanwhile the elegant ballerinas and interpretive dancers are all white and featured prominently. It’s cultural appropriation a la Katy Perry or Iggy Azalea. But she’s quirky so it’s cute, right?

      Have you SEEN any Rap or Hip Hop videos where black girls wear nothing and are treated like pieces of meat? Are those black rappers racists too? Taylor is actually making fun of all those videos, from rap to Lady Gaga. Or is that too subtle for you to understand?

    LOL @ Number nine at her doing illuminati crap!

  • Anthony Gilbert Aragon

    Thats so stupid, people are actually complaining about the black female dancers. People need to start realizing that if any dancers in general who are black, white, asian, gay, straight, whatever don’t want to be in a music video, stage performance, or whatever due to it being racist or demorilizing they don’t have to be in it they have a choice. Why fight and waste your breathe about something that’s not even in the least sense plausible.

    And last time I checked the interpretive dancers all not all white so get your facts straight before you start calling people racist becuase it is a very strong word so don’t say it unless you really know what your taking about.
