She once claimed that she did not need to remove her clothes to sell records. And Taylor Swift has employed a little creative ambiguity to stick to that message, whilst at the same time appearing to be totally naked in a new video.
The 27-year-old US pop star on Monday released a preview of a music video for her latest single, Ready For It, in which she appears unclothed, with geometric lines of lights across her body, although she is likely wearing a nude-coloured bodysuit.
Swift posted three short clips on her Instagram page and within an hour they had been viewed more than 2.5 million times. In the teaser, set in a futuristic sci-fi universe, she is filmed walking down a corridor with a hood over her head before transforming into a robot or cyborg-like being.
Another segment shows the singer gazing into a floating, glowing orb, while another snippet sees her smashing through what looks like a glass cage.
