You Can’t Spell Melodramatic Without “ME!”: Taylor Swift Speaks French in New Music Video

Taylor Swift is back with new music today (April 26). She released the song, “ME!” (feat. Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco) along with its music video, which is, at times, dreamlike and melodramatic!

Directed by Swift and Dave Meyers, the video begins with a pink snake slithering across a brightly-colored cobblestone road. Like a holiday cracker, something pops, and suddenly the reptile becomes a hundred butterflies, fluttering like confetti into a window of a house where a couple (played by Swift and Urie) is having a heated argument: in French!

Sample dialogue:

« Devant nos filles. » (“In front of our girls” – which are actually 2 cats on the sofa!)

« Je suis calme! » (She screams “I’m calm” with a flourish as she makes a dramatic door slam exit!)

The song is growing on me, but I instantly fell in love with the “ME!” music video. All of the computer graphics make it light, fun, and otherworldly. For instance, I spied a gargoyle-unicorn hybrid overlooking the city that looks a lot like Paris, if you ask “ME!”
