Taylor Swift Goes Beatnik—and Brunette!

Taylor Swift Goes Beatnik—and Brunette!-photo

Is Taylor Swift abandoning country music for a career as a Beat poet? Well, not quite—but she does seem to be channeling her inner Maynard G. Krebs in a new photo-shoot for retail chain Target.

The Fearless chanteuse dons a black beret, black turtleneck and a brunette wig to match for the shoot, which promotes the deluxe edition of her new album Speak Now, which goes on sale October 25 (and is available for pre-order on Target.com now).

The expanded version will feature three new music tracks, three remixed tunes and 30 minutes of video. Swift enthuses of the venture, 

“I’m so excited about the deluxe edition of Speak Now that will be at Target!” said Taylor Swift. “I’m all about being able to give the fans special extras whenever I can, so I love that this version has video footage and even some additional songs.”

But what of her new look? Does this mean that T-Swift is going to pick up a pair of bongos and start spouting angst-drenched, free-form verse about how Joe Jonas broke up with her over the phone? We certainly hope so.

Does Taylor pull off the beatnik look? Render your verdict in the comments section.
