Taylor Swift poses backstage with the awards at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on March 29, 2015.

However, that was so NOT the case at all, as Taylor made a decision to take a different approach for "Delicate".

The video begins by mirroring Swift's life.

Eighth Amendment referendum bill to be introduced in Dáil
Fianna Fail TD Billy Kelleher - a member of the Oireachtas Committee on Abortion said Irish women have been failed by the Eighth Amendment.

Taylor Swift's new music video is a lot to take in: The star becomes invisible (though not to us), dances wildly through a hotel lobby, stumbles onto the Los Angeles Metro barefoot and does a split on a auto in the rain.

While the video has been warmly received by fans, with many dubbing her expressions and uninhibited dancing "relatable", the rest of the discussion around it has been far less complimentary, with many accusing Swift of "ripping off" others' work and channelling dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler. That allows her to unleash her true self without being hounded by the media. "In the freezing cold, she loved doing that".

Some of the hidden references include the words "It's Delicate", and "Reputation", spray painted on garage doors down a dark alleyway, "Track 5", also written in graffiti on a subway station, and an abundance of lyrics from the song going hand in hand with the video perfectly.

At one point Rush attempts to run, and Hickman says "You know what's amusing is you're going to get f--ed up hardcore". Hickman resigned from the department sometime before january 19, according to a memo obtained by the Citizen Times .

And Taylor's friend, country star Kelsea Ballerini, tweeted, "This is my favorite version of you I am obsessed with this".

But all that changes when she receives a note to meet an unidentified person at a bar. According to some eagle-eyed Twitter users, the visuals for "Delicate" might appear to bear more than a passing resemblance to one famous video from 2016 - Spike Jonze's four-minute short film/perfume ad for Kenzo, starring Margaret Qualley. This could easily be accidental but whatever the case Swift has fans that stand by her no matter the outcome.
