While Tay's music videos may seem like a random array of to-die-for outfits, dramatic facial expressions, coloured wigs and celeb cameos, Team DOLLY has spotted loads of references carefully planted in your fave vids.
INSPO: The Notebook.
The scene with Tay and her lover boy on the boat is a total shout out to Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in the classic romance movie, The Notebook which Tay is a huge fan of!
VIDEO: 'Blank Space.'
INSPO: Mean Girls.
Tay took revenge tips from Mean Girls by cutting holes in her BF's shirts. You can thank Janis for that one!
VIDEO: 'Shake It Off.'
INSPO: Black Swan.
Taylor's white ballerina costume is a nice nod to Natalie Portman's character in the creepy ballet thriller, Black Swan.
VIDEO: 'Love Story.'
INSPO: 'Rome & Juliet.'
This is an obvious one! Visually and lyrically, this song pays homage to the epic Shakespearean tragedy of star-crossed lovers. Fortunately, it has a happier ending. "Baby, just say YES."
VIDEO: 'Bad Blood.'
INSPO: Britney Spears.
INSPO: The Hunger Games.
INSPO: Tron: Legacy.
INSPO: The Fifth Element.
This one had a Swift load of references! When Taylor is in the healing pod dressed in white, we had major flashbacks to '90s sci-fi film, The Fifth Element, while the Swift squad's training room looks a helluva lot like the one seen in The Hunger Games where Katniss and co learn all their fighting skills.
Tay and Jessica Alba on motorbikes is a throwback to video-game movie Tron: Legacy, and don't you reckon red-headed Taylor at the end looks just like Britney Spears in her video for 'Toxic'!?
In summary, Taylor Swift is a pop culture KWEEN!
