Swift’s performance involved lots of men in masks and tuxedos who fawned over her every move on a giant staircase. We get it, Swift, you are just dying to exchange your cowboy boots for Stuart Weitzmans and head to some exclusive party where a guy will sweep you off your feet.
Swift’s performance included her over-the-top romantic style set to her second single off her Red album, “I Knew You Were Trouble.” She began the song in a beautiful, and I guess you can say “innocent” gown, but halfway through the performance showcased an instant costume change into a red corset dress. I guess she’s trying to symbolically show the drama of the song, right?
I like Taylor Swift, but her continual need for romance and more important, to be a “princess,” is getting a little old. It seems like every time I see Swift, she’s in some gorgeous dress, fawning over love or lost love. I’d really like to see her get her tiara and maybe change her style a bit, like she did when she finally learned to accept an award without gasping in awe.
*Correction: “I Knew You Were Trouble” is Taylor Swfit’s third single off her album, Red. We mistakenly reported this single as her second single.
