Bad news for anyone hoping for an entirely Taylor Swiftless MTV Video Music Awards broadcast this Sunday. Swift, fresh off the cryptic sharing of a pair of terrifying snake videos, will premiere the video for her Right Said Fred-nodding new single "Look What You Made Me Do" during the Katy Perry-hosted event.
Swift made the announcement early Friday morning, teasing the video—which is presumably directed by frequent collaborator Joseph Kahn—with a vaguely goth-esque montage clip:
Swift and Kahn last worked together on the video for the 1989 single "Out of the Woods," co-written by Jack Antonoff, back in 2015. Kahn's filmography also includes classic collaborations with Backstreet Boys, Wu-Tang Clan, Hole, Britney Spears, and blink-182.
Despite the just-announced premiere, Swift isn't expected to perform during Sunday's event. "[Swift] has been on the show many times and [has] performed with a new album coming, but not this time," Jesse Ignjatovic, an executive producer on this year's VMAs, clarified to People on Thursday ahead of the "Look What You Made Me Do" release. "I definitely wish she was coming on and performing."
"Look What You Made Me Do," title be damned, doesn't actually go into lyrical detail about what exactly Swift has been made to do. Perhaps the official video will shed some light.
Speaking of amazing timing, VMAs host Katy Perry dropped her long-awaited "Swish Swish" video earlier this week. The slapstick-heavy basketball saga was directed by Dave Meyers and suddenly demands a rewatch:
