Taylor Swift In ‘Ours’ Video: America’s ‘Working Girl’

Posted by Jocelyn Vena On December - 5 - 2011

Taylor Swift

(Ed Note: I wanted to kick this post off with a full disclosure moment … I am head-over-heels in love with and completely obsessed with the film “Working Girl.” It is, perhaps, the greatest film ever.)

It’s hard to imagine Taylor Swift holding some 9-to-5, dead-end office job. But in her new video for “Ours,” the singer imagines what it would be like to be just another working stiff. Immediately, once I clicked play on the video, one thing came to mind: Taylor Swift must also be crazy for Melanie Griffith’s classic 1988 film, “Working Girl,” just like me and every other sane human being.

Taylor does her best Tess in the video by donning sneakers into the office. It’s a classic move from the film, which follows Griffith’s Tess, an ambitious secretary trying to move up the corporate ladder, who along the way beds a vintage Harrison Ford and dumps her loser boyfriend, played by Alec Baldwin. (Shout out to Sigourney Weaver and Joan Cusack for their classic performances in the film as well.)

OK, so the exact events of Taylor’s “Ours” video aren’t shot-for-shot from the Mike Nichols film, but the look Taylor rocks, specifically the sneakers she wears into the office before changing into a sensible stiletto, definitely recalls that film. The video, which also stars Zach Gilford as her soldier beau, and the way it portrays the humdrum nature of working just for working’s sake while wanting more from life total feels like “Working Girl.” Now only if we could get Taylor to say, “I have a head for business and a bod for sin.”

Watch it, after the jump.

This Week In Taylor Swift Being Taylor Swift: OMG CHRISTMAS!

Posted by John Mitchell On November - 30 - 2011

Now that Thanksgiving is over, Taylor Swift can now focus on her absolute favorite thing – Christmas! With her massive, special guest-heavy “Speak Now” world tour wrapped, Taylor can focus on the important things, like making homemade snow globes.

Yes! Swift posted a bunch of completely adorable pics to her Instragram feed with captions like, “Home made snow globes with friends. The whole fleet!” and “Christmas in a jar, with glitter.”

Taylor is also ramping up her collaboration with American Greetings with a holiday collection includes collectible ornaments and Christmas cards. “The latest cards from Taylor are highlighted by her appealing casual writing style, inspiring photography, expressive hand lettering, and joyful designs that make every greeting memorable,” an American Greetings press release wrinkled its nose and said. “This year’s holiday collection features everything from festive scenes like stockings hanging on a mantle, beautifully wrapped packages, and elegant decorations to the small, charming joys of children catching falling snow and a deliciously warm cup of hot chocolate just begging for a little whipped cream.”

But that’s not all. The greeting card giant and the pop-country megastar are taking things even further with its “13 Days of Taylor” sweepstakes, which features 13 days of giveaways “inspired by the singer-songwriter’s love of the season.” The fun begins tomorrow and continues through Dec. 13, Taylor’s birthday (squeal!), with three winners being selected randomly to receive gift packages that change daily but always include a copy of Swifts “Speak Now World Tour – Live” DVD. Fans can register now on American Greetings Facebook page.

Check out some of Taylor’s holiday handiwork after the jump.

This Week In Taylor Swift Being Taylor Swift: She Named Her Cat After A ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Character

Last week in Taylor Swift being Taylor Swift, the country-pop megastar found Christmas trees at the country Music Association Awards and posted her thanks to the superstars who’ve joined her on tour by writing their names on her arm and taking a picture with her new kitty in the background.

That’s a very Taylor Swift thing to do. Kind of like being surprised all the time and being obsessed with cookbooks.

This week, she continued to reveal that she’s actually a 65-year-old woman how cute she is by explaining the origins of her adorable new kitten’s name, Meredith.

“Her name is Meredith – Meredith Grey because she’s a gray cat, and because I love ‘Grey’s Anatomy’!” Swift told US Weekly. “She’s awesome. She’s like one of those cats that give cats a good name. She doesn’t hide under furniture and get weird around people. She’s really friendly and fun and she’s perfect for the road because she doesn’t ever get freaked out. So I’m really glad that she has a cool personality.”

Oh Taylor. (Confession: We love Taylor Swift – in our current Justin Bieber baby drama world, Taylor Swift being Taylor Swift is like a breath of fresh air.) For more of Taylor being Taylor – Christmas is coming! – read on.

Christmas is coming!

She won! That never happens!

Christmas trees!

Surprise!

Taylor Swift Continues To Quietly Own The Singles Charts With Previously Unavailable Tracks

Country darling Taylor Swift has had one heck of a year – including winning Entertainer of the Year at last week’s Country Music Association Awards – and the songstress continues to slay the charts while making plans for her eventual fourth album.

Swift’s last disc, Speak Now, has two new songs set to debut in the top 15 of this week’s Billboard singles chart – “Ours” and “If This Was a Movie” – which were previously only available on the Target-exclusive deluxe edition but were made available to digital retail outlets last Tuesday. It’s estimated the singles will sell around well over 100,000 copies each with possible debuts in the top 10 if sales are strong enough.

Other bonus songs that recently became available digitally include “Superman,” “Mine” and alternate versions of select Speak Now tracks.

Swift broke all sorts of records when she placed 11 different songs simultaneously from Speak Now on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It’s an amazing achievement in and of itself, but even more so when you realize Swift is the only female artist to ever hit this mark (only the Beatles and, oddly, “American Idol” alum David Cook can boast similar charting). She’s also the only artist to do this with songs culled from a single album – the Beatles did it with songs across various projects, while David Cook did it with 11 individual singles – and Swift is the only one to do it with self-written songs (the Beatles included covers and Cook didn’t write his own tunes).

That even more individual, non-single tracks from the set are still charting a year after its release speaks to Swift’s undeniably popularity. Everything she touches turns to gold!

Of course, the workaholic already has plans for her fourth album, which she hopes to release sometime next year. Swift recently told MTV News she’s “been writing so much for the new record,” adding, “I’ve written 25 songs so far, so it’s coming along really well. I’ve been writing a lot, and I like to take two years to make a record. We’re at the end of year one, and I still have a year left to go write.”

We’re looking forward to it Miss Swift, we’re looking forward to it!

Too adorable to fail Taylor Swift won the top prize at the County Music Association Awards and as usual seemed positively shocked that anyone would give her an award despite a trophy case that already contains four Grammys, seven American Music Awards, 11 Billboard Music Awards and five previous CMAs.

After claiming her Entertainer of the Year prize, she took to Twitter to thank her fans and do other adorable things, most notably thanking the many superstars who’ve joined her on stage during her guest-heavy Speak Now world tour, including Nicki Minaj, Usher, Jason Mraz, Haley Williams of Paramore, T.I. and Justin Timberlake, by listing them on her arm and taking a picture with her new kitten. (Seriously, could she have found any other way to make this showing of gratitude more Taylor Swift than include a kitten?)

In another true-to-form moment she also somehow managed to find a Christmas tree backstage. Of course she did.

Read on for more Twitter love from the queen of pop-country after the jump.
