Changing out of the gold Zuhair Murad mini dress she wore to accept her AMA for Favorite Female Artist, Swift slipped into a pair of cut-off denim shorts, a slouchy sweatshirt, and a black leather jacket. Her normally long blonde locks were cut short to her shoulder and dip-dyed pink.
The edgy new makeover was for the video for "I Knew You Were Trouble," the third single from the chart-topper's smash album, Red. There's no word yet on which of Swift's exes the dub-step anthem is about, but in the video at least, her love interest is played by Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark star Reeve Carney, 29. The two were spotted cozying up on set.
"Thank you so much for the AMA! You're unreal," she tweeted to her 20 million followers after performing on Sunday night. "I went straight from the awards to a night video shoot. Long day but so worth it."
