AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift shows off her martial art skills. In a hilarious ad for her DirectTV station, the 27-year-old pop star bumps into Andy Samberg in a hallway and the two are engaged in a heated stand-off that escalates quickly. She takes him down with her kung fu moves.
The commercial shows the daily life of the Grammy-winning artist. Between recording her music in the studio and goofing off with her adorable cat Olivia, she apparently gets hungry easily. She indulges in raw cookie dough and shamelessly steals food to appease her hunger.
In a behind-the-scenes video, the singer/songwriter is even seen eating food off of her own shirt. "I actually eat it," she says. "You have to, you know, sometimes make sacrifices to really get authentic performance. .... I have to, you know, I'll eat the prop food."
"Such a taxing day when they're like 'eat some cookie dough' and you're like 'ok I'll make this sacrifice for my art'," the star quips in the caption of one of the clips.

Taylor Swift is releasing her new studio album "Reputation" on November 10. She announces two editions of her own special magazine to accompany the album. Two songs "Look What You Made Me Do" and "Ready for It" have come out ahead of the album release.
The "tilted stage" in "LWYMMD" lyrics is supposedly a subtle jab at Kanye West who used tilted stage on his "Saint Pablo" tour. The line "You ask me for a place to sleep, locked me out and threw a feast" supposedly refers to Calvin Harris and Katy Perry since the Scottish DJ allied with the "Bon Appetit" singer following his split from Taylor.
Meanwhile, fans are divided over the inspiration behind the second song. Some claimed it's about her current boyfriend Joe Alwyn, 26, but many others believe it refers to her 23-year-old ex Harry Styles. The lyric "If he's a ghost then I can be a phantom" is supposedly a response to Styles' single "Two Ghosts" which is rumored about his romance with Taylor. In the song, she also gives a clue that the man is "younger than [her other] exes."
Taylor broke multiple records with "LWYMMD" including the most viewed music video on YouTube in 24 hours. However, she was accused of ripping off Beyonce Knowles in the video. The director Joseph Kahn defiantly told LA Times, "It's not 'Formation' at all. They try to say she's wearing a black crop top and Beyonce wore a black crop top. But they don't realize in 2015 in 'Bad Blood', Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top. I really do think, by the way, that Beyonce copied 'Bad Blood'."
