Geek chic: Taylor Swift rocks a set of spectacles in the opening of her new music video for hit track We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
It was named this week the number one song downloaded by users on iTunes.
And now Taylor Swift is satiating her tween fans with a video for her new break-up anthem: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.
The three-and-a-half-minute clip shows Swift miming her lyrics as she dumps a good-for-nothing heartthrob pleading for a second chance.
The video, directed by Declan Whitebloom, debuted on MTV on Thursday.
Romance gone wrong: The singer cuddles up to a heartthrob in one memory of their happier times together
It features the star in several vignettes that play out 'like one gigantic pop-up book', as the network reports. Swift's band members dress up as furry animals and whimsical scenes of happier times from the pair's wronged romance unravel.
But the country singer, famed for penning songs about bad break-ups, is resolute - slamming the door in handsome's face and choosing instead to rage on in her newfound freedom with an impromptu dance party.

That's a winning look! Irina Shayk tops the sideboob league as she goes braless in a plunging white dress
By KIRSTY MCCORMACK
Risque: Irina Shayk shows off some side boob as she accompanies her boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo to the UEFA Champions League group stage in Monaco
She's used to modelling underwear for a living, but it seems that when it comes to everyday life Irina Shayk prefers to go braless.
The 26-year-old model seemed to have forgotten to put a bra on when she accompanied her boyfriend, Christiano, Ronaldo, to a football event today (Thursday).
Wearing a smart white blazer, that just happened to be low cut, Irina showed off just the right amount of side boob as she sat with her sportsman boyfriend.
It's rude to whisper: The Russian model almost flashed her nipple as she leaned over to talk to her footballer boyfriend
However, it was a near wardrobe malfunction for the Russian model, who almost flashed some nipple as she laughed with Christiano.
The brunette was too busy to notice how much flesh she was showing off as she gazed at the footballer and giggled.
She teamed the white jacket with a large pair of sparkly earrings and a matching ring, while her dark hair was pulled back into a chic bun.
The pretty star was seen listening intently as her partner talked her through the draw ceremony for the UEFA Champions League at Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Let me explain: Christiano Ronaldo talked Irina through the draw ceremony for the UEFA Champions League
The footballer had also dressed for the occasion wearing a dark smart suit and an expensive-looking silver watch.
Perhaps Irina was fed up of wearing underwear following her latest shoot for Chinese lingerie brand La Clover.
In the pictures she shows off her incredible physique in numerous pictures showing off the colourful designs.
In one picture she sprawls across some satin bed sheets while wearing a red lace two-piece while in another shot she flexes on a chair in a silver number.
Happy couple: Irina was seen gazing at her beau at the football event in Monaco
She's no stranger to posing in just a bra and knickers, having started her career as the face of Intimissi five years ago.
It wasn't long before she was gracing the hallowed pages of Sports Illustrated, and walking the catwalk at the luxurious Victoria's Secret fashion shows.
However, fans who want to see even more of the sultry star will be disappointed to learn that she will never pose nude for Playboy as she is 'too classy'.
She has said: ‘I would never do Playboy. Yes, I am a lingerie model, but I have class. Playboy offered me so much money last year. I was like: “No. Way.”'

Trooper: Cheryl Cole gets back to work in a sling just 48 hours after being involve din a bloody car crash alongside will.i.am
She worried fans when she was involved in a bloody crash just two days ago.
But like the true professional she is, Cheryl Cole has already thrown herself back into work, despite having to walk around with a sling on her arm.
The Girls Aloud star has been spotted busy at work today as she rushes around London fulfilling her various interview slots.
She started the morning at Capital Radio, before moving on to Radio 1 where she had a chat with Fearne Cotton.
Injured: She flew straight back to London and spent this morning (Friday) attending different radio interviews across London
Cheryl was seen with a large grin on her face as she turned up to both buildings while she recovers from her injuries.
But opening up to Capital Radio's Dave Berry she revealed she only has to wear the sling for three days - and even joked the crash was will.i.am's fault.
All smiles: She revealed to Capital Radio that she's been told by her doctor to wear the sling for three days
She told him this morning (Friday): 'You know what, I think it's actually hurting more to have it in the sling than it does when it's not in there. I was just told to wear it for three days. I'm following doctor's orders.'
And she also shed light on how the accident came about, which saw her get hurt while in the car with her pal will.i.am.
The 29-year-old joked The Black Eyed Peas star wasn't concentrating as he too busy chatting away to her.
Bouncing back: Cheryl also revealed that the accident occurred when will.i.am was busy talking to her about his latest song
When asked by Capital Breakfast co-presenter Lisa Snowdon if will.i.am was a bad driver, Cheryl replied: 'That bad a talker, I would say. He was talking the face off us... He was talking about Nasa and Mars and his song.'
And Cheryl has also been taking to Twitter to share snaps with her posing in her sling.
Relaxed: Despite the trauma of the crash, Cheryl has been taking to Twitter to ensure her fans she has fully back on the mend
She received treatment for the accident which happened in Los Angeles alongside manager will.i.am, who was pictured leaving hospital in a neck brace.
And she has now put it behind her to promote her new song Under The Sun.
The pop star's PA posted one snap on her Twitter page this morning alongside the cheeky caption: 'One arm bandit but trust me her mouth still works! ?#nothingthematterwithher?.'
Triple amputee veteran completes grueling 10.5 mile endurance race called The Beast over five-hours to honor fallen U.S. soldiers
By JAMES NYE
Strength: Triple amputee and Marine Corporal Todd Love makes his way to the finish line of The Beast event of the Spartan Race
Covered in mud, five hours after starting, triple amputee Corporal Todd Love charges to the finish line after competing over ten miles of rugged terrain across 75 obstacles in an event called The Beast.
Having lost both his legs and an arm in Afghanistan in 2010, this weekend Love took to Leesburg, Virginia, in an extreme endurance test called The Spartan Race with his eight-man other comrades of Team X.T.R.E.M.E.
Marine Corporal Todd Love completed the 10.5 mile race in a little over five hours as he and his colleagues at Team X.T.R.E.M.E. competed for the honor of their fallen comrades
Made up of wounded servicemen and women, the team helped Love scale eight-foot high walls, speed along high-wires, crawl through mud and bound across the ground as they honoured their ongoing mission to raise awareness of the nation's wounded heroes.
Purposefully wearing a mask and visor to restrict his breathing by up to 30-percent - thereby making it more difficult to complete the event - Love who now weighs only 100-pounds after stepping on a landmine - struggled to compete the event.
Unable to complete every one of the 75 obstacles on his own, the members of Team X.T.R.E.M.E. help Cpl. Love over a wall (left) while he pulls himself up (right)
'The Team dons gas masks as a way to symbolise perseverance in the face of insurmountable odds,' said Jeremy Soles, Founder of Team Team X-T.R.E.M.E.
'Our challenges in the mask last for hours, our Wounded Warriors endure their challenges for a lifetime.'
The picture of Love drenched and bravely struggling to the finish has been seen by millions on the Internet and has become an inspiration to the able bodied as well as those who have been injured serving their country.
Todd Love (left in bed) stood on a landmine while serving in Afghanistan and is visited here by friends while recovering in Maryland
'I am pretty surprised with how much attention I've got in the last 24 hours,' said 22-year-old Love.
'I have been trying to keep up with it and I just want to thank everyone that has been with me since the beginning.
'I will try to keep up the adventures (safely) and inspiration.
'I will promise I will never let what I can't do interfere with what I can do.'
In addition to his endurance sports, Cpl. Love enjoys skydiving and skiing with a specially modified device
Leesburg is usually reserved for horse-racing, but on the wet and muddy course Team X-T.R.E.M.E. mostly carried Love around, but the former serviceman did conquer obstacles himself - including one heroic solo hill climb at the halfway point.
One of the mantra's of the team is to never leave anyone behind and throughout The Beast, each event had to be completed by all eight members before they moved on.
The race is designed to push all the participants to their limit, mentally and physically and the fact that a man with no legs and only one arm managed to complete all 10.5 miles and 75 obstacles has inspired millions.
Marine Cpl. Todd Simpson of Acworth, Georgia is a third generation marine.
Cpl. Love has decided not to become a victim of his injuries and travels the world charity fund raising - experiencing new extreme sports for his fellow injured veterans
On his return home five months after his accident, the triple amputee was treated like a hero by his family and hundreds of well-wishers.
He said 'I don't know what to say right now.Thank you so much. It's nice to be home. I love y'all.'
At Dallas Park, Love even joked about his injury. He said: 'I was up front with the minesweepers searching for explosives and I found them. I guess that’s the easiest way to put it.
As part of his rehabilitation he learned to play Bach on the piano with one hand and no legs
'I'm still the same man.I was a boy when I left, but now I'm man. I haven't lost anything in my eyes.'
Since the incident, Love has been recovering at the National Naval Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He's been in outpatient rehabilitation and helped by his brother Brandon.
August 30, 2012 - After its disappointment with the Miss World 2012 results, Mexico is now ready to try its chance once more in 2013. Marilyn Chagoya Triana was just crowned as Miss Mundo Mexico and thus this 18 year old and 5'10" high beauty will soon embark into a quest where no Mexican had ever succeeded. With National Director Lupita Jones expressing lately her concern about the pageant's integrity plus the injustice accorded to Perla Beltran in 2009, will Mexico ever win the Miss World crown?

Branislava “Brana” Mandić, a 20-year old student of pedagogy from Novi Sad, was crowned Miss Universe Serbia 2012 after a special casting call held in Belgrade. The Miss Serbia 2012 competition had a change of date, which would not allow the eventual winner to prepare in time for the international stage.
Branislava Mandic, 2nd Runner up at Miss Serbia 2011 has been designated to represent at Miss Universe 2012 this December. Bojana Lecic (1st RU at Miss Serbia 2011) was originally designated to compete for the pageant yet due to the fast approaching season of Miss World 2012, the Miss Serbia org decided to send Bojana instead of having a Miss Serbia pageant this year. She is 20 years old.
