Yeah, Taylor Swift Is Serious About This Pop-Star Thing

This is definitely not the Taylor Swift we remember. This is the full-blown pop-star version of our fair-haired country crossover: complete with shimmering hot-pants and with — gasp! — no sign of a guitar. On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, she performed “Out of the Woods,” the Jack Antonoff–penned chant — er, song — and officially set the tone for 1989. Whether or not you’re onboard for pop-star Taylor Swift? That’s up to you.
