Watch Taylor Swift Perform an Acoustic Version of 'Blank Space'

Jan 07, 2016

Taylor Swift gives “Blank Space” an acoustic makeover in another video from the pop star’s September session at Los Angeles’ Grammy Museum. In the clip, Swift explains that the second single off 1989was a response to a particular group of people: the press.

“In the last couple years, the media have had a really wonderful fixation on kind of painting me as the psycho, serial dater girl,” Swift says dryly. “It’s been awesome — I loved it.” That sentiment was well-documented in the music video for the song, which featured Swift and a man from her “long list of ex-lovers.”

Watch the performance — with Swift making the chorus-ending click noise herself — above.
