The Most Inappropriate Outfits Worn By Taylor Swift

This is one Taylor Swift look that we can’t exactly just shake off. In 2014, the singer released her music video for the single “Shake It Off” from her “1989” album. In one of the scenes, the singer danced in a variety of outfits and styles. One of those dance styles was, apparently, twerking. And for her outfit, the singer wore denim shorts, white sneakers, a leopard print hoodie, giant gold hoops, and a huge gold snake necklace — the uniform for twerking, we guess?

As one writer pointed out for the Daily Beast, this look could easily be interpreted as cultural appropriation. Swift looked, they noted, “like an off-brand Cheetah Girl” in this costume. “One white celebrity plus potentially harmful stereotypes plus the appropriation of black bodies as casual props equals some complicated math that no one in America is in the mood for this week,” the writer summed up. Other people agreed. “Haven’t watched the Taylor Swift video and I don’t need to watch it to tell you that it’s inherently offensive and ultimately harmful,” tweeted rapper Earl Sweatshirt at the time.
