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 SwiftÂ helps wreckÂ Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles’ marriage in theÂ Mad Men-inspired video for “Babe,” theÂ ReputationÂ 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,” NettlesÂ toldÂ 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 LPÂ RedÂ but didn’t make the cut; the track, as a collaboration between Sugarland and Swift, is instead the second single off the country duo’sÂ Bigger,Â their just-released first album since 2010.
