You've never seen Taylor Swift like this before — and if you did, you were probably on strong hallucinogenics!
The Plasmatic Research Laboratory is a new animation studio at the University of Newcastle in Australia — and they made the coolest animation project ever!
49 students and animators were given 52 frames each of Swifty's Shake It Off music video and were assigned to animate it however they wanted to!

They produced 2,767 total frames using a technique called rotoscoping. This is where animators trace over footage frame by frame before letting their own creativity take action with different colors and visuals!
Some students took a more realistic approach, while other frames looked like a straight up acid trip — but the video (below) definitely showcases the talent and imagination of these students!
Taylor Swift is breaking records left and right!
This week, the Style singer became the most decorated artist in the history of the Billboard Music Awards with 20 wins — breaking Garth Brooks' 19-win record.
But Swifty didn't stop there! She broke ANOTHER record with her Bad Blood music video!

The all-star music video broke Vevo's 24-hour viewing record — garnering 20.1 million views the first day it was released!
To secure the number one spot the songstress surpassed Nicki Minaj, whose Anaconda video had the title since August 2014 — debuting with 19.6 million views in its first day online!
We're not quite sure how Tay-Tay will outdo herself, but we can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
On Monday, Emily Beazley, a fan of Taylor Swift, died at 12-years-old after battling cancer for four years.
It was only three weeks ago that the young fan was surprised with a phone call from her idol.

Emily mother's, Nadia Beazley shared:
"My beautiful Emily got to use her angel wings. She fought hard to the end. Her last gift to me was passing peacefully. It hurts so much to imagine that I will never have another hug or kiss from my girl. Or hear her say 'Mommy' the special way that she does. This hurts so damn bad."
As we all know, Taylor Swift claimed the top spot of Maxim's 2015 Hot 100 list.
Now, the rest of the list has been revealed, and joining TayTay is about half the cast of her new music video for Bad Blood.
The members of the pop star's self-proclaimed "squad" among the ranks of these sexy stars are Cara Delevingne, Lily Aldridge, Gigi Hadid, and Selena Gomez.
Coincidence? Conspiracy? Hmmmmm.

But T-Swizzle isn't the only pop princess to land on the list. Rita Ora, Charlie XCX, and Ariana Grande are also included!
And Maxim couldn't forget our FAVES Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, and Kendall Jenner!
Ch-ch-check out the full list (below)!
Rita Ora is so excited about her next album that she's ready to reveal all!

And that includes a very special pairing with Ed Sheeran!
Rita has revealed that her next big collab on her long-delayed album will be with the Thinking Out Loud singer.
But she and Teddy don't just have a musical connection; they have a BFF one! She explained:
We hope there's no bad blood between Tay Tay and Kendall!
Taylor Swift just released the most star-studded music video of all time when she premiered Bad Blood at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday… but there was one very noticeable absence.
That's because while T-Swift included almost all of her famous friends in her short film, Kendall Jenner was mysteriously not a part of the fun.
So why exactly was the 19-year-old deemed unfit to join the likes of Karlie Kloss, Hailee Steinfeld, Cara Delevingne, and the rest of Taylor's all-star cast??
Well, as it turns out…
