When it comes to the pop music history books, 2023 might as well be the “Year of Taylor Swift.” Imagine being bigger than Beatlemania and Thriller combined – that is the Taylor Swift effect. Time magazine named her Person of the Year, and according to Phoebe Bridgers, she is a phenomenon that rocked the world. Vogue even dubbed her “a fantasy of uninterrupted American progress”. And not forgetting her throwback to the chart-topping ‘1989’ album – breaking records left and right.

One song that stood out in 2014 from ‘1989’ was ‘Blank Space’. It was a clever satire where Swift winked at her serial-dater image crafted by the media. Now, fast forward to today, and Hollywood’s A-listers gave this iconic tune a glamorous makeover.
