The internet was abuzz this morning when the music video for Taylor Swift's self-parodying new single, "Blank Space," made its way online apparently ahead of schedule. The video, which features Swift embracing the crazy ex-girlfriend stereotype that has haunted her for years, was released by Yahoo and caused a frenzy on social media before it was taken down several hours later.

While Swift has yet to comment on the leak, a source from her camp told BuzzFeed News that the video had been scheduled to premiere on Tuesday. Director Joseph Kahn addressed the situation on Twitter, confirming the video was released early by mistake.

I'll link video later when I think it's clear. I think it may be a mistake on yahoo's part - they may have released it early by accident.

Yup. Yahoo effed up. Wait to see the Blank Space video. Let Taylor introduce it herself. It'll be worth it :)

Kahn later told Mashable that the video was supposed to premiere during Good Morning America on Tuesday and will go live again tomorrow morning. Of the video's concept, he said "She's highly aware of one particular thing that's happening right now — the idea that if you date her and you break up with her, she's going to write a song about you. She's aware of this. She's not an idiot. Taylor wanted to make a video addressing this concept of, if she has so many boys breaking up with her maybe the problem isn't the boy, maybe the problem is her."
