Taylor Swift is unrecognizable playing a man in her latest music video.
The video for her single "The Man" brings to life Swift's lyrics about how differently the world views men and women.
"They'd say I hustled/Put in the work/They wouldn't shake their heads and question how much of this I deserve," she sings. "What I was wearing, if I was rude/Could all be separated from my good ideas and power moves."
Swift, who wrote and directed the music video, gets one last dig in at society's treatment of women at the end.
As the director, Swift asks her "man" character (voiced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), "Could you try to be sexier? Maybe more likable this time?"
The video is filled with plenty of "Easter eggs" and cameos, including Swift's dad as a tennis umpire.
On Thursday, Swift shared some behind the scenes photos from the video shoot on her official Instagram account, writing "Just sitting here pondering how happy I am that The Man music video is OUT."

Harry Styles Drops 'Falling' Video
Harry Styles revealed the music video for “Falling,” which was released on Friday (February 28).
The video was directed by Dave Meyers, who Harry previously worked with for the “Adore You” music video. He also performed the song for the first time on television at the 2020 BRIT Awards last week.
Watch the music video for “Falling”.
BTS have dropped their second official music video from their new album, “Map of the Soul: 7,” for the song “ON” — and within minutes of it dropping, the song became the biggest YouTube Premiere of all time, with 1.54 million concurrent viewers tuned in for the clip’s debut on YouTube Premieres.
According to the announcement, “The video symbolically depicts BTS’ vow to accept their predestined path as fate and to keep going on, no matter the obstacles. The band’s signature charisma and perfectly synchronized choreography during the video’s dance break is set to attract the attention of millions of viewers around the world. As the global superstars continue to reach new heights, the lead single ‘ON’ sees BTS reach yet a new apex as versatile musical artists on a celebrated seventh year of their career.”
“Map of the Soul: 7” sees the members of BTS continue to reveal their personal stories but with a heightened sense of self-awareness. From RM, J-Hope and Suga ridding themselves of anger from their detractors on “UGH!” to Jimin and V declaring themselves “soul mates” despite their differences on “Friends,” plus Jin’s heartfelt letter to fans on the soaring track “Moon,” and youngest member Jungkook reflecting on growing up in BTS on the euphoric “My Time,” these tracks are previously unseen sides of the member.
While they dreamed about this kind of success, BTS tell Variety they never expected to reach the level they’re at today and that led to questioning. But rather than looking outward or thinking they needed outside help, the guys trusted that continuing on the path they were already on was the right way to go. “Map of the Soul: 7” not only delivers the septet’s most personal tracks, but sees them referencing their past by rebooting and reworking the themes and ideas from early BTS songs to reflect their growth today. New single “ON” is a rework of the early BTS single “N.O,” while “We Are Bulletproof: the Eternal” acts as an extension of their 2013 single “We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2,” while album closer “Outro : Ego” samples parts of the intro from BTS’ debut album, “2 COOL 4 SKOOL.”
The group’s Suga explained the concept behind the album’s title to Variety last week. “We worked together for seven years, there’s seven of us. It’s a lot more than just inspiration, this album contains our stories,” he said. “I think what was different, and what was really fun, was that more of the members participated in this album. Some of the guys who didn’t really participate as much did more and I think that was really significant.”

BTS has canceled several concerts planned in Korea due to the global coronavirus outbreak, according to a post on the group's Weverse (via Twitter). Korea’s Yonhap news agency was first to report the news.
“It is unavoidable that the concert must be canceled without further delay,” reads the post, which was originally written in Korean and translated by Variety. “Please understand that this decision was made after extensive and careful consideration.”
The canceled shows, the first on the group’s Map of the Soul world tour, were slated to take place on April 11, 12, 18 and 19 at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul. Ticket buyers will receive automatic refunds.
South Korea is a center of infection for the virus (COVID-19), which has infected more than 80,000 people and killed over 2,700 worldwide at last count. As a result of the pandemic -- which originated in Wuhan, China, and has now spread to more than 40 countries -- over 20,000 music events have been canceled or postponed in both China and Hong Kong, resulting in ticketing and box-office losses of 2 billion yuan ($286 million), according to the China Association of Performing Arts.
The coronavirus has also resulted in concert cancelations outside Asia. On Tuesday, it was announced that the 18th annual Korea Times Music festival, which had been scheduled for April 25 at Los Angeles’s Hollywood Bowl, had been “provisionally postponed.” The festival had already announced performances by K-pop girl group MOMOLAND, solo singer and former Wanna One member Ha Sungwoon and rock band No Brain, with more to be announced.
With the Seoul dates canceled, the next BTS concerts are scheduled to take place April 25 and 26 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The group will follow that with three concerts at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on May 2, 3, and 5.
Niki DeMartin teased on her social media that she was thinking of dying her hair, then later shared on Instagram Story that she was actually doing it. In addition to her new look, Niki is also in Los Angeles working on new solo music.
She said that since Gabi has been talking about her solo music, and Niki hasn’t really talked about hers, so she teased, “It’s coming and it’s not what you’re expecting.”
“yes! we’re unleashing who we really are this year and we couldn’t be more excited for ourselves and eachother. NO MORE COMPROMISING OUR ART 🌈✨🌈✨🌈✨,” she added on Twitter.
