"Since 13 is my lucky number, today also seems like the perfect day to release my brand new video," Swift told Good Morning America, which gave fans the first look at "22," a sunny romp through Malibu, California featuring the singer cavorting with a troupe of buddies.
Swift revealed that the girls who accompany her are not actors, but part of her gal-pal posse: "I never had this much fun shooting a video because my friends in the video are actually my real-life best friends."
Although it has been speculated that Swift was poking a bit of fun at her ex Harry Styles by dressing up like him in the video (the song has a line, "It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters/And make fun of our exes"), it appears Swift is more about having a good time here than making any sort of barbed statement.
What we think is most amusing about "22"? Swift sports a shirt reading "Not a lot going on at the moment." Nothing could be further than the truth! In addition to the Red tour launching in Omaha, Nebr. Wednesday--she's currently slated to headline 58 shows in 45 cities through September--she's up for five awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards April 7.
