Taylor Swift dons a wig and fake beard for the music video for her song The Man.
It’s a similar theme to Beyonce’s If I Were A Boy where Taylor imagines how she would behave differently if she were a bloke. Men are sometimes seen as getting an easier go of things than women and can get away with more outlandish behaviour without being judged. In the vid, we see Taylor (or Tyler?) manspreading, being a loud boss, peeing in public and generally being pretty obnoxious.
No one pulls her up on her irritating behaviour and generally the male version of Taylor does things that the real life Taylor would never be seen doing. The video makes a serious point in a lighthearted way that being aggressive, commanding and arrogant aren’t always considered as negative personality traits for men. It’s the latest one of Taylor’s ambitious music videos. The singer has really taken her vids to a new level over the past few years. Rather than just focusing on simple shots and locations, Taylor has put a lot of time and effort into coming up with unique music videos.
