Taylor gets her heart broken in this grungy tale of love lost

Taylor Swift's new music video for I Knew You Were Trouble is a grungy tale of punk-ass boys, broken hearts and regret.

The video drags on for two minutes before the music actually starts, as Taylor delivers a melodramatic narration of her 'harrowing' journey of the heart.

With plenty of dirty, tattooed boys, some passionate kissing in muscle cars and a scandalous desert party, it seems Taylor is trying to rebrand herself as Lana Del Rey, but with awkward results. She's our all-American good girl, after all. She would never roll around in the desert in a dirty t-shirt with a hangover, would she?

Maybe that's the whole point. Her new track is an intriguing blend of commercial country-pop and grinding dub step, so it only makes sense she would try and get her hands a bit dirty in the video.

The question is, does it work? Are you buying her messy new look? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
