Taylor Swift has been on a roll in terms of creative, hilarious videos lately.

Taylor's "Shake It Off" video has become the stuff of YouTube legend thanks to an off-the-wall premise that features Taylor falling on her face (sometimes literally) while attempting a wide array of girly-girl activities.

The video for "Blank Space" - the second single from Taylor's record-breaking 1989 album - debuted online today and though it's considerably darker and more personal that "Shake It Off," it still finds plenty of humor in some unexpected places ...

Though, Taylor spoke about her breakup with Harry Styles during a recent listening party, for the most part she's kept mum on her love life throughout the 1989 promotional frenzy.

Perhaps that's why Taylor decided to poke fun at her own Stage 5 Clinger reputation with the aid of an actor who doesn't seem to be modeled after any of her famous exes.

Taylor Swift's smash single "Shake It Off" has become so ubiquitous since its release earlier this fall that it somehow even managed to travel through time.

How else do you explain her album sales, which look like totals from a bygone era, or the fact that an '80s aerobics routine managed to use the hit track?

Or so you might think, thanks to YouTube user Thomas Jung, who combined this '80s video with the song, making for just about the best video maybe ever:

The choreography, originally performed at the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship hosted by Alan Thicke, syncs perfectly to "Shake It Off."

We're not sure what's funnier, how well Swift's song fits the video or the fact that this was, at one point, an actual thing that existed somewhere in civilization.

It's almost as if Swift (who was born in 1989 and whose already wildly successful album 1989 was released last week) wrote the tune while watching this clip.

We can certainly see her dancing like this in the studio or at home.

The so-called "feud" between Taylor Swift and Spotify isn't really a feud at all, but rather the result of a savvy business decision on Taylor's part.

Spotify compensates artists, but streaming doesn't pay nearly as well as actual sales, so it's not hard to see why Taylor would prefer for her fans to go to iTunes or Target if they want to hear her blockbuster album:

"I'm not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music," Taylor said in a recent interview.

"I just don't agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free."

All this week, Taylor Swift has been celebrating the success of her latest album and making the Internet a better place in the process.

Yesterday Taylor rapped a Kendrick Lamar song to celebrate 1989's record-breaking sales.

Today, she showed just how long she's been down with the streets when she posted what might be the ultimate Throwback Thursday photo:

"The last time an album sold as many copies as 1989 did first week, it was 2002," Taylor wrote with the awesome photo above.

"I was 12, and going through my "braids phase." #nofilternecessary"

By the way, the artist who set the pace back in 2002? Eminem - another genre-redefining blonde who's arguably too open about his personal life. Coincidence? Yeah, probably.

Taylor Swift may have just released the pop record of the year, but while other celebrities are gushing over Taylor's new album, Swifty's own musical tastes veer a little bit more hardcore.

That's Taylor lip-syncing to Kendrick Lamar's "Backseat Freestyle" and we think it's safe to say the lyrical content is a bit outside of her wheelhouse. 

"My mind is on cloud nine, and this .9 is never on vacation," Taylor begins.

The first part is probably true, considering she just sold over a million copies and announced the 1989 world tour, but we have our doubts about Taylor carrying a cat in one hand a loaded piece in the other. 

But even with Taylor spittin' lines about busting caps, the most interesting thing about this video is where it ends:

If you're a Taylor Swift fan who uses the music streaming service Spotify, you may have found yourself disappointed this week.

As you've likely heard, Taylor released 1989 on Monday and her highly-anticipated fifth studio album is on track to become the biggest seller of the year.

Swift's label, Big Machine Records, pulled all of her music from Spotify in preparation for 1989's blockbuster sales.

Spotify execs issued a statement saying that they're fans of Taylor's music and "hope that she changes her mind."

That seems unlikely.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (or at least it seems like it), a number of Hollywood A-listers used to model clothes for Abercrombie & Fitch.

Some of these young men and women look like they were designed to wear the famous brand, while others who once modeled it will likely surprise you.

Especially #7. We did not see that one coming one bit ...

Jennifer Lawrence
Oh yes, that's a young Jennifer Lawrence, the most beautiful Abercrombie model (or possibly human being) of all time.

It's hard to believe that before she was winning Oscars, posing for magazine covers, and ruling Hollywood, a young Jennifer Lawrence was doing this.

And yet at the same time, it's not. Just look at her.

She was just about the most naturally beautiful human being to ever exist on the planet, and she still is. Channing Tatum modeling for Abercrombie?

Similarly believable and as epic as you would think.

Taylor Swift may soon be coming to a city near you.

Just a few days after appearing on Good Morning America and teasing a 1989 tour, the artist has released a video that confirms she'll be traveling the country often in the spring and fall of 2015.

Said Swift in a video that aired today on GMA:

"Hey guys, it’s Taylor Swift. I’m so excited that we have announced the dates for the 1989 World Tour and next week is when the tickets go on sale, but they’re available right now for American Express cardholders. See you on the road."

Swift released her latest album just one week ago, yet it has already sold over a million copies.

Will you be able to see the reigning Queen of Music at some point next year? Scroll down for a list of tour dates and prepare to shake it off, THGers!

Taylor Swift is making headlines these days for her professional life, not her personal life.

The artist is blowing up the charts with her new album, teasing an upcoming tour and pretty much taking over all entertainment outlets around the globe.

And she's doing it all without a man by her side.

Taylor Swift on British Cosmopolitan
Taylor Swift covers this issue of British Cosmopolitan. Inside, she talks to the magazine about dating, sexism and a lot more.

"People will say, let me set you up with someone, and I'm just sitting there saying, ‘That's not what I'm doing. I'm not lonely; I'm not looking.'...They just don't get it," the 24-year-old tells the December issue of British Cosmopolitan.

As Swift has said before, she has two cats at home and that's all she needs right now.

Taylor Swift is on pace to sell over one million copies of her new album.

But while the artist looks ahead to that milestone, she can take pride in one she accomplished this morning:

According to Robin Roberts, Swift's concert in Times Square today was the biggest ever held by Good Morning America, with countless fans camping out over night just to ensure themselves of a spot in the audience.

Aside from hearing live versions of "Shake it Off,” “Welcome to New York,” and “Out of the Woods," viewers were treated to an exciting announcement fro the 24-year old superstar.

"I am gonna be going out on tour very soon!" she exclaimed. "We’re in the early stages of planning the actual show. I’m excited about announcing things when I can announce them, but it’s going to be happening."
