LOS ANGELES, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Taylor Swift stripped down some of her biggest pop hits to perform at the Clive Davis Theater at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, Calif.

According to the Youtube channel that published the video, the "intimate performance" was conducted back in September of last year as a part of her September Sessions.

This particular performance was in celebration of the pop singer's record-breaking attendance exhibit at the museum.

Swift's mega-hit "Blank Space" was included in the mix along with "Wildest Dreams," both singles coming from her latest album, 1989.

According to Entertainment Weekly "Blank Space" came about as a response to the press jabbing Swift with allegations of her being a serial dater.

In her introduction to the acoustic performance Swift, well known for writing songs about her personal life, explained why she was so inspired to make such a song.

"In the last couple years, the media have had a really wonderful fixation on kind of painting me as the psycho, serial dater girl," Swift says dryly. "It's been awesome — I loved it."

She went on to discuss how she was intrigued by the crazy "psycho" character the media portrayed her as, giving the audience a very animated description of the character's flamboyant lifestyle.

The song's music video currently has over 1 billion views on Youtube.
