However, that was so NOT the case at all, as Taylor chose to take a different approach for "Delicate".
Throughout all of the joyous, lovably dorky secret dancing, I couldn't help but think of another iconic pop video centering on a woman at the height of her powers letting the world know that actually, things aren't always as great as they appear.
The prizes for the artists of this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards were finally announced this weekend (March 11th 2018), with leading winners including Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, The Chainsmokers and Harry Styles.
Not one to shy away from her down to earth and quirky persona, the 28-year-old shows off her electric-powered dance moves, over the top fashion choices, and the silly side to her that makes her so relatable to fans in the first place.
Needless to say, many diehard Swift fans have already started decoding the video because it's no secret that Swift doesn't just make music videos for the hell of it.
The superstar singer debuted the video for her single "Delicate" at Sunday's iHeartRadio Music Awards. That allows her to unleash her true self without being hounded by the media.
And Taylor's friend, country star Kelsea Ballerini, tweeted, "This is my favorite version of you I am obsessed with this".
In the clip, Taylor receives a note which magically renders her temporarily invisible.
The most common comparison so far has been between the video and a Kenzo fragrance advert directed by Spike Jonze back in 2016.
Looking ahead of herself, Swift is looking forward to her stadium tour launching May 8, tickets can be purchased here.
