We bet you missed these references in Taylor Swift's music videos

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.

VIDEO: 'Mine.'

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!
