Taylor Swift worked out some major demons on the therapy-like set of her controversial music video Look What You Made Me Do, which first premiered August 27.
In a new behind-the-scenes clip – titled ‘Taylor Mountain’ that dropped on YouTube Wednesday – the 27-year-old pop starlet lost it while pretending to beat up one of the versions of ‘herself.’
‘I hate you! Get out of my head!’ the 10-time Grammy winner viciously screamed while raining blows on her ‘Ringleader Red Tour’ double.

Perched on a green-screen pyramid, Taylor filmed the fight scene while while wearing a long curly wig, a glamorous silver-fringed mini-dress, and lucky number 13 etched on her hand.
Stunned at her angry outburst, Swift later confessed: ‘I’m not sure where that came from. I have no experience with home invasion. But, you know, you just gotta follow the muse.’
The 5ft10in blonde was a lot calmer when she shot the other side of the stunt in red glittery tails and a towering top hat.
‘I had some hat problems because I got too excited,’ the Ready for It singer shrugged.
‘And it turns out that top hats aren’t the best wardrobe for fighting.’
Taylor first introduced herself to the ‘wonderful’ gang of doppelgängers while climbing atop the faux mountain.

Swift marveled: ‘Okay this is the trippiest thing I’ve ever seen in my life’
‘Okay this is the trippiest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,’ Swift marveled.
‘Seeing all of them together is the weirdest feeling, but it’s awesome. It’s exciting! It’s like, “Oh, that’s the phase I went through when I was 16 but a girl is wearing it who looks just like me.”‘
The two-time Golden Globe nominee – now wearing glasses, PJS, and a ‘Junior Jewels’ T-shirt – remarked: ‘We’re having a good time. We’re all talking about life. That’s gotta look weird.’
The Pennsylvania-born belter flailed her legs so wide she nearly fell off a crane while shooting herself falling off the mountain after getting kicked in the face.
It was Swift’s fourth music video with director Joseph Kahn, who famously won a Grammy for helming her star-studded girl squad video, Bad Blood, back in 2015.
LWYMMD is the first record-breaking single off the UPS brand ambassador’s sixth studio album Reputation, which hits shelves on November 10.
British trio Right Said Fred got songwriting credit on the revenge anthem due to its resemblance to their 1991 hit, I’m Too Sexy.
The three-minute featurette arrived after Taylor’s substantial seven-month hiatus from public life.
As for live appearances, Swift vowed to the Super Saturday Night audience inside Houston’s Club Nomadic on February 4: ‘I’m only doing one show in 2017, and as far as I know, this is that show.’
