Do people still watch music videos anymore?  Well, if there were ever a music video where the visuals are masquerading a crappy song, it’s this one.  Valerian’s visual excess has got nothing on Taylor Swift.

You know, I realize it’s different strokes for different folks but I hear nothing redeeming at all in this song.  It’s just paint-by-numbers modern R&B with absolutely no connection with the visuals whatsoever.

In conclusion, Taylor Swift just has money to burn, I guess, and this is how she’s decided to burn it.

The sad thign is this sort of tactic WORKS.

The video went up yesterday and has already racked up 11 million views.

Sorry, I need something to clean the palate from this.
