Taylor Swift premiered her highly anticipated new song “Look What You Made Me Do” on Friday morning, August 25, and fans got to see the official music video just two days later, when it had its world premiere at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 27. What did you think of the video? Watch it above, then vote in our poll at the bottom of this post. And make sure to check out the full list of VMA winners right here.
Swift’s song is unusually angry for the typically wholesome artist, including lyrics like “I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me / I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams.” The song is rumored to be a commentary on her public tiff with Kanye West, and though the video doesn’t include explicit references to the embattled rapper, she does reference her own past personas, including her look at the VMAs in 2009 when her Best Female Video victory for “You Belong with Me” was notoriously interrupted by West, who protested that Beyonce should have won.
“Look What You Made Me Do” could be a contender at the VMAs in 2018, and if so it would be wise to bet on Swift. She has won seven VMAs so far in her career, including Video of the Year for “Bad Blood” in 2015. She even won a VMA this year, though she wasn’t in attendance to accept the prize: she and Zayn won Best Collaboration for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” from “Fifty Shades Darker.”
