Go Behind the Scenes of Taylor Swift’s ‘Mean’ Video [VIDEO]

You've got to give Taylor Swift credit -- even with a bajillion records sold and a steady stream of radio hits, she's refused to take the easy way out with her videos, preferring to tell a visual story instead of filming performance clips.

That's definitely the case for her new 'Mean' video, which uses Swift's latest hit as the backdrop for an old-time miniature movie about, well, what happens when people are mean. And Swift gave fans a peek behind the scenes of the clip with a half-hour documentary that recently aired on GAC.

FAITH AND FREEDOM

From a childhood along the back roads of Texas, to Music City and on to the stages of Broadway, meet Gary Morris. Gary will be my special guest this afternoon (the Fourth of July). I'll be debuting the title cut and new single, "Faith and Freedom" from his latest CD. Gary is dedicating this very song and arrangement to the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard as a July 4th Thank You to our military. The man has an amazing voice and is probably best known for his signature rendition of the classic "Wind Beneath My Wings" in addition to his starring role in Broadway's "Les Miserables". I know you'll enjoy the CD and I'm looking forward to meeting Gary this Fourth of July Monday afternoon. And by the way, happy 4th! Check out one of his Videos after the jump:

Listen! Weird Al Parodies Taylor Swift’s ‘You Belong With Me’ with New Song, ‘TMZ’

At the ripe old age of 21, Taylor Swift has sold more than 20 million albums and won multiple Grammy Awards — but now that she’s had one of her songs parodied by ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic, she can say she’s truly made it.

On his recently released new album, ‘Alpocalypse,’ Yankovic spoofed Swift’s ‘You Belong With Me,’ renaming it ‘TMZ’ and subbing in paparazzi-tweaking lyrics like “You’re sorta famous, a minor celebrity / And so it only makes sense the world would be / Obsessed with every single thing you do … If they ever catch you picking your nose / Or stumbling the street on a drunken spree / You’re on TMZ.”
