Fans of these two (who are you people?) have been anxiously awaiting the steamy music video for the song “I Don’t Want to Live Forever.” Though Swift’s bestie Gigi Hadid is the one dating the former One Directioner, Swift and Malik are the ones playing lovers in the video.
“I Don’t Want to Live Forever” is set in the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London. It starts with Malik being dropped off in a car before entering the hotel. Naturally, he’s so glamorous that he’s hounded by paparazzi on the way in. Lucky for him, he escapes up the elevator.
That’s when Swift takes the reins. She too looks all sulky as she exits an elevator before making her way to a room where Malik is waiting. Then the overflow of champagne starts, people sit around drinking, moody lighting flashes, hotel rooms are destroyed…you get the picture.
Watch the video here:
It’s actually kind of a depressing song for a Fifty Shades movie. Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik don’t exactly look too happy about each other. But, hey, we all know people love those volatile relationships, or else why would Fifty Shades be so popular? Oh, right! All the sex scenes!
Fifty Shades Darker will land in theaters on February 9, 2017, just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s been two years since the first movie came out, and there are two more to come after this. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan star as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger and Rita Ora will also make appearances.
