Taylor Swift sent flowers to music video dancers

Taylor Swift sent flowers to music video dancers

Taylor Swift made headlines around the world after the controversial music video for her new single "Look What You Made Me Do" was released.

The new track had its official premiere at the MTV VMAs in Los Angeles and features her darker side leaving her former self behind her.

But some fans have criticised her for being shown relaxing in a bath of diamonds, claiming it's a reference to Kim Kardashian's robbery in Paris.

The lyrics video - which was released before Swift debuted the full video at Sunday night's MTV VMAs - accrued 19million views on its first day, nearly doubling the figure held by previous record-holder, Something Just Like This by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay.

People are also buzzing that the lone dollar bill floating in Swift's tub among the diamonds is a nod to the symbolic $1 settlement she won this summer when a jury found that a radio host had groped her. There are several snake references through the video - apparently a recurring motif for her forthcoming new album reputation.

Rebel Tory Dominic Grieve said it was "pie in the sky" to think that we can "wholly escape the influence" of the ECJ . In the government's position paper on the matter, which is published this afternoon, a new word has popped up.

She appears to poke fun at her relationship with ex-boyfriend Tom Hiddleston with her backing dancers wearing tops with "I (heart) TS" on them. "There she goes playing the victim again", while another added: "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative".

It received 43.2 million views in 24 hours, smashing the record set by Psy, whose video for Gentleman was watched 38 million times in one day in 2013.

Swift has certainly evolved from her girl-next-door image with the release of her latest single.

The dancers helped keep Taylor's song and video top secret before she released it over the weekend.
