Taylor Swift looks a bit cray-cray in her new music video for "Blank Space."

Off her hit 1989 album, Swift croons in the song's chorus, "Got a long list of ex-lovers, They'll tell you I'm insane," and "insane" she goes in the video. Is this Swift's way of making fun of what the media has said about her and her "ex-lovers"?

Set in a beautiful mansion, a good-looking man shows up in "suit and tie" and initiates a whirlwind romance with the 24-year-old ... that is until she loses her mind.

Matching the lyrics perfectly -- "screaming, crying, perfect storms" -- Swift slashes her lover's clothes, throws things over the balcony, hits his car with a golf club and dons some seriously smudged mascara.

One of the more impressive moments of the video has to be when Swift stands on a horse!

When all is said and done, she kills her guy and moves on to the next one. 

Music site Sterogum points out that "Blank Space" feels like a parody of Swift's 2008 video for "Love Story." The video centers around a prince and a princess falling in love in a beautiful castle.

UPDATE: Director Joseph Kahn tweeted Monday morning that Swift's "Blank Space" was released too soon and was taken down. "Yup. Yahoo effed up," he wrote. "Wait to see the 'Blank Space' video. Let Taylor introduce it herself. It'll be worth it."


Around noon on Monday (Eastern time), Swift released the video on her terms, tweeting: "GUYS. 'Blank Space' Music Video. Directed by @JosephKahn. Co-Starring @Seanopry55."
