Taylor Swift has never been one to shy away from dancing and she puts her skills on full display in her new music video … but people are talking.
The singer debuted “Delicate” Sunday at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and since then it’s racked up over 8 million views.
The video begins by mirroring Swift’s life. She can’t go anywhere without bodyguards, fans are demanding selfies or just randomly screaming for her attention. She then becomes invisible and decides to break out in dance everywhere she goes.
Now, for those of you who’ve seen Taylor Swift dance before, you know she tends to be a bit bold … and awkward.
Online critics couldn’t help but crack jokes about the star’s moves. True Swifties came to her defense though, hailing her dance moves as “relatable” and “special.”
Here’s some of our favorites that made us LOL:
Just saw Taylor Swift’s video for Delicate, and I’m genuinely concerned for her mental well-being with those dance moves.

I love you @taylorswift13 . Thank you for the wonderful #DelicateMusicVideo . I love the concept but nothing beats the fact that seeing you enjoy, dance like you don't care anymore, being the real you & being free from everyone made the MV more personal and special ❤😘😊
