The world got a refreshing glimpse of the old Taylor Swift during the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday, March 12.

In the new music video for "Delicate" — the fifth song on the 28-year-old's sixth studio album, Reputation — Swift dances out her frustrations like we've never seen before. Faced with aggressive fans, fake friends, crippling loneliness, and intense isolation, the singer appears to "Shake It Off" despite her terrible "reputation."

As evidenced by the lyrics below, the song is about finding love during a difficult time. However, the video puts the spotlight on a miserable Swift who can't seem to find a friend.

"This ain't for the best / My reputation's never been worse, so / You must like me for me / We can't make / Any promises now, can we, babe? / But you can make me a drink."

Check out the video below:

Earlier in March, the songstress was seen out with her boyfriend, British actor Joe Alwyn. Leading up to the outing, the couple had successfully avoided paparazzi.

Swift will soon embark on her next world tour for Reputation. You can get tickets here.
