‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever’ Video: Watch Taylor Swift and Zayn Get Angsty and Stuff
Update: Taylor and Zayn display some genuine warmth in this BTS video (via CapitalFM).
Taylor Swift and Zayn surprise-released a sexy, breathy, falsetto-filled Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack song at the end of 2016. Naturally, you'd expect to see the two tied up, or at least wearing something kinda bondage-y in the accompanying video, right?
Eh, don't expect any ball gags or harnesses here: much like Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" for Fifty Shades of Grey, this is one entirely vanilla, SFW affair.
The long-teased Grant Singer-directed visual for "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," which debuted tonight (Jan. 27), is a dark and shadowy offering (fitting enough), which sees the two superstars-slash-IRL friends brooding in different hotel rooms at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London.
They break some mirrors (bad luck!), pace around, sit down, pluck some flower petals (watch for thorns!) and generally just angst it all out. So much angst.
At the very end, the two finally stand in the same place, stare at each other and...sort of share some on-screen chemistry? Maybe? It's hard to tell, since their time together lasts mere seconds. (Gigi Hadid, no doubt, was monitoring her boyfriend and her bestie very closely from just off-camera the entire time.)
Let's be real: this is not exactly a must-see visual extravaganza. One might even call it boring. But, hey...at least they both look good?
