For someone who admitted to The Boot that she was feeling "nervous" before her March 27 Red
tour stop in Newark, New Jersey, her first of of three at the Prudential Center, she had little reason to.
But for Taylor Swift,
who's lately battled a slew of negative press, it was her time for redemption. Although the Red tour had similar features from her past tours -- amazing visuals, a slew of dancers, special effects including fire, intricate costumes and the singer floating above the audience -- there were some darker, real moments, too.
Take, for instance, a video playing before "The Lucky One," a song that addresses the downside of fame by telling the story of a recording artist named Lucky. In a black-and-white film that played before her performance, Taylor was seen combing her wavy hair, looking at herself in a mirror.
