Swift also unveiled the magazine covers which will accompany the album's sale in Target in the USA, promising poetry and paintings, 16 pages of handwritten lyrics, personal photos, fashion portraits, behind-the-scenes video shoot photography and a poster.
The invite isn't the first time the VMAs have waded into politics, or even the military. Swift is subsequently seen coming towards the camera on a swing, and finally, she stands in full view with backup dancers behind her. Her new squad. At the end of the teaser, Swift fronts a band of men while staring down the camera with a feisty glare.
She proceeds to warn of her vengeance on everyone who's wronged her in the "Look What You Made Me Do" lyrics, which draw from the turmoil of negative publicity she has endured over the last few years.
The singer premiered 15 seconds of the much-anticipated music video - directed by Joseph Kahn, the creative force behind multiple videos from Swift's 1989 album, including "Bad Blood" - on Good Morning America Friday morning.
