Taylor Swift premiered her epic video during the award show's pre-show
Taylor Swift‘s music video for her latest single “Wildest Dreams” could be summed up in one word: sexy.
The “Bad Blood” singer, who completed the L.A. leg of her 1989 world tour on Wednesday night, premiered the fifth music video from her record-breaking album on Sunday during the pre-show of the MTV Video Music Awards.
Set in Africa (and the golden age of Hollywood cinema) – Swift took “let’s get out of this town” quite literally – the video notably drew inspiration from The Notebook, as the singer confirmed on a fan’s post earlier this week. And even better: Scott Eastwood stars as Swift’s leading man, which not only caused us to uncontrollably swoon every few seconds, but is seriously making us consider starting a petition to have Eastwood star (or at least make a cameo) in all music videos.
The singer plays a Hollywood starlet who has fallen for her sexy costar as they film and promote a movie together.
Swift took to Instagram on Saturday to share her excitement for the premiere.
Say you’ll remember me/ Standing in a nice dress/ Staring at the sunset, babe,” she captioned the shot of them looking absolutely picturesque in vintage clothing.
Eastwood returned the favor on Instagram, posting the same picture with the caption, “What an amazing time working with @taylorswift Not only is she a rockstar. But someone I am proud to call a friend. She is a great person and those are hard to find in your life. When you do .Hold tight. #WildestDreamsMusicVideo”
Swift also decided to donate all proceeds of the video to the animal conservation efforts of the African Parks Foundation of America.
