Watch Taylor Swift Wreck a Marriage in Sugarland’s ‘Babe’ Video
Singer plays red-headed temptress in ‘Mad Men’-inspired visual for ‘Bigger’ collaboration
Taylor Swift helps wreck Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles’ marriage in the Mad Men-inspired video for “Babe,” the Reputation singer’s collaboration with the country duo.
According to Nettles, Swift conceived the adulteress role for herself. “She actually reached out to us and said, ‘I’ve got a great idea for the video,’ and she wrote the treatment,” Nettles told People. The video itself was filmed on the same sets as AMC’s acclaimed ad agency series.
“Babe,” co-written by Swift and Train’s Pat Monahan, was originally destined for the singer’s 2012 LP Red but didn’t make the cut; the track, as a collaboration between Sugarland and Swift, is instead the second single off the country duo’s Bigger, their just-released first album since 2010.
