Taylor Swift accused of copying Spike Jonze ad for new video

Taylor Swift accused of copying Spike Jonze ad for new video

Away from the cameras and paparazzi we see Taylor dancing like nobody is watching, because literally nobody is, and the clip has already racked up millions of views on YouTube.

The Bad Blood hitmaker's promo for Delicate debuted at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night (11Mar18), with the footage featuring a bored Swift, apparently sick of her superstardom, practising her fake smile for the public and the press in a mirror.

Falk plays it, for lack of a better word, pretty straight in this video - he enters a hotel lobby with Taylor and a team of bodyguards, and when the star becomes invisible upon being handed a magical note, she attempts for several seconds to get his attention.

Fashion fans have accused Taylor Swift of ripping off a 2016 fragrance ad by Spike Jonze for hip brand Kenzo in her new video. Though she was not present there in person but in a pre-taped video, Swift said "Hey guys, I just wanted to say thank you so much for this award".

Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan to feature in 'The Zoya Factor' adaptation
Before The Zoya Factor , Sonam will be seen in Veere Di Wedding alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhaskar. South Indian actor Dulquer Salmaan's Bollywood film with Sonam Kapoor has been creating quite a buzz lately.

The influential artist was preparing for her upcoming world tour for "reputation" as the awards were happening.

And when we see Taylor dancing on top of the desks in the hotel, if you look carefully at the concierge's tablets you'll see that they read the feline hotel name; "Hotel Delicat".

At one point she also dances in front of a deli called Joe's Deli - which, interestingly enough, doesn't exist in the area of Los Angeles where the video was shot, nor anywhere close to the Golden Gopher, the dive bar she ends up in at the end, leading many to believe that this was created specifically as a clue. According to her, it suffered for more than 18 months. She explained to her fans that how she was stressing over a new crush.
