Viewers of the latest Taylor Swift music video, “Delicate,” probably noticed a few notable Los Angeles landmarks playing prominent roles.
The video, which was released on Sunday, begins inside Downtown’s Millennium Biltmore hotel with a paparazzi-mobbed Swift making her way through the hotel’s glittering and ornate interior. Her night ends with a romp in the rain in St. Vincent Court and a stop at the Golden Gopher.
But it’s what happens in between those points that is concerning.
In the Biltmore, Swift receives a mysterious note that makes her invisible to all. Upon discovering this, she dances and shimmies her way out of her shoes and the hotel, making her way to the 7th/Metro Center station.
There, a still-invisible Swift continues to dance shoeless on the upper level platform and into a train car. Shoeless! So all-encompassing is her invisibility that she is even invisible to germs, hence her fearless, barefoot frolic in the multi-line transit hub.
As Swift sings in the song, “This ain’t for the best.”
