Today during her Yahoo! live stream, Taylor Swift announced a new album and unveiled a new song along with an accompanying music video. The world wept tears of joy.

The music video is hysterical and so wonderfully strange. Taylor totally nails the whole "awkward and loving it" thing. Major props to her. Here are 12 of her beautifully weird moments and what Taylor was probably saying to herself during them:
