Taylor's shot a series of behind the scenes videos from the ‘Shake It Off’ shoot – and they're kooky, cute and awkward.
We love Taylor Swift's ability to laugh at herself - her 'Shake It Off' video is prime example of why she'd be an incredibly fun mate to have - and now the singer has unveiled a series of behind-the-scenes videos from the music video shoot.
The first installment of Taylor Swift’s behind the scenes videos covers the cheerleader scene, seeing Taylor performing a million ‘basket tosses’ as she gets involved with the high intensity routine.
Taylor also revealed that she did a month of running to get ready for the shoot as it needed so much stamina to get through the three days of filming.
Taylor said of the video, “One thing I learned in this process is you can get everything you want in life without ever feeling like you fit in."
"Selling millions of records doesn't make me feel cool. It makes me feel proud, and that I have a lot of people on my side, and I worked really hard, but I don't think it's the most important thing in life to fit in."
"I think it's the most important thing in life to dance to the beat of your own drum and to look like you're having more fun than the people who look cool."
The second video sees Taylor doing her best to be awkward amongst a bunch of amazing ballerinas - but Tay Tay definitely has the body to pull off a tutu and leotard!
The third instalment sees Taylor take on the eccentric world of modern dance - of course, she does it in her own inimitable style! While the other dancers tackle their 'inner sadness', Taylor just 'Shakes It Off'!
Taylor had to tackle a "potentially life-threatening" headache in the fourth video - from having her wig on too tight! Rocking a VERY blingy outfit, Taylor "awkwardly ruins" the 'Animator' style of dancing…
In video number five, Tay Tay takes on tweaking and finger tutting. While she actually proves to be pretty good at wiggling her booty, we were a bit freaked out at just how flexible the finger tutter-er's fingers are!
In the sixth installment, Taylor takes on Ribbon dancing - but while she looks the part, she manages to get herself tangled up in the ribbon and get knots in it rather than a nice flow. Whoops!
The seventh instalment is by far the most adorable, with Taylor inviting a bunch of fans down for the shoot - and they don't have any idea that that is what they are there for!
