It’s a birthday bonanza for Taylor Swift.

When the country-pop crooner rings in 23 on Thursday, Dec. 13, she will celebrate by marking a milestone: her 23rd music video. Ahead of Swift blowing out the birthday candles, MTV is honoring the six-time Grammy winner with a week-long party, which will conclude with the debut of her “I Knew You Were Trouble,” the latest single off her record-breaking No. 1 album, Red.

“As soon as I started writing this song, I knew it was different from anything else on the record, so I knew that I wanted the video to be different from anything we’d ever done,” said Taylor Swift via MTV News. “I wanted to tell the story of a girl who falls into a world that’s too fast for her, and suffers the consequences.”

Shot in Los Angeles, Calif., the Anthony Mandler-directed video shows Swift fall for a handsome beau — played by Broadway actor Reeve Carney — and get drawn into his dark, twisted world. “I feel incredibly lucky to have gotten to work with Anthony Mandler and to have Reeve Carney as my co-star in the video,” added Swift, who’s recently been making waves with her rumored romance with One Direction’s Harry Styles. “I can’t wait for everybody to see it.”

MTV kicked off the week-long Swift-praising hoopla on Monday, featuring never-before-seen snaps from the video shoot on its site. On Tuesday, Dec. 11, fans can feast on clips of Swift dishing on her dark concept for “Trouble” and a video chronology of her past music videos. Wednesday, Dec. 12, will bring a brand-new interview with Swift at Viacom’s “Big and Best of 2012″ and will premiere the video’s trailer.

Then Swift’s big day will come Thursday, Dec. 13, when she premieres the “I Knew You Were Trouble” video, her third single off Red that peaked at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in late October. The video is slated to premiere on MTV at 4:40 p.m. ET, before going into full rotation across all MTV channels at 5 p.m. ET.
