Yikes! Taylor Swift just can’t seem to catch a break.
Just months after Twitter slammed the songstress for allegedly hijacking themes from Beyonce‘s 2016 ‘Formation’ video for her own 2017 ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ visual [click here to read that hilarity again], the country-turned-pop star is in hot water again as accusations of thievery fly surrounding her recently released ‘Delicate’ music video.Array
A day after her ‘Delicate’ music video premiered during the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards, fans of Swift found themselves having to defend the Grammy winner and her trusted video director, Joseph Kahn, from online attack as some viewers noted striking similarities between the visual and a 2016 Kenzo fragrance ad directed by Spike Jonze (starring ‘The Leftovers’ actress Margaret Qualley).

Granted, anybody can see the visuals do have a notable likeness. Some, however, believe the resemblance is not coincidental.
While the hoopla isn’t exactly the kind of press Tay-Tay may be looking for at this point given the entire ‘Reputation’ era has been riddled with mixed news (unlike the projects that preceded it), we can say the coverage certainly ain’t hurting the ‘Delicate’ video. As of time reported the clip – which just premiered Sunday (March 11) night – is already sitting pretty at over 23 million views.
