The country- pop singer turns the big 2-3 on Thursday,Dec. 13, at which time she will debut her 23rd music video.

The clip for “I Knew You Were Trouble” will premiere on MTV to cap off a weeklong celebration of her birthday. Reeve Carney, who is currently playing Peter Parker in “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” on Broadway, will play Swift’s love interest in the Anthony Mandler-directed video.

Mandler is a frequent collaborator of Rihanna, and directed several of her videos including “Disturbia,” “Take a Bow,” “Russian Roulette,” “Wait Your Turn,” and Jay-Z’s “Run This Town” featuring Rihanna and Kanye West. Mandler also directed and exec produced “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood” on E! in 2007.

On Monday will have never- before- seen photos from the video shoot. On Tuesday the site will have clips of Swift discussing the video on set, and a video chronicling the previous 22 music videos. Swift will count down her top five 2012 moments via a live stream on Wednesday, followed by a trailer for her new video.

The video will premiere on MTV Thursday at 4:40 p.m. ET, and then supposedly go into rotation on MTV channels 5 p.m. ET, but we know how scarce videos are on MTV.
