Late night talk show host Conan O'Brien has an issue with pop singer Taylor Swift: he thinks she misrepresented what it is like to be 22 in her latest music video.

Off of her album Red, Swift has a single titled 22 and in the song's music video, she parties with friends while enjoying a massive birthday celebration. In the footage Swift and her friends go to the beach, attend a pool party and dance around while just acting silly.

O'Brien was put off by the video's false portrayals of young adulthood. He released his own video on May 21, where he expresses his thoughts on the matter. He also got a bit personal.

"Taylor Swift is great . . . but I know what it's like to be 22. I don't think that that's an accurate representation of what it's like to be 22," he said.
He called out Swift for her fancy apartment, and continued on saying, "I didn't see any Ramen noodles in that video. That's all you're eating when you're 22."

"When you're 22, you don't even go outside. There's nowhere to go, there's no one to talk to, you don't even have a girlfriend," Conan said. "That's what it's like for everybody when they're 22. Everybody."

The song is the fourth single off Swift's Red album. She performed the track at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday the same night she took home a total of eight awards, more than any other artist nominated. Her wins included Artist of the Year, Top Female Artist, Top Country Artist and Top Billboard 200 Artist. Her We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together was named Top Country Song.

"Thank you for making my music the soundtrack to your crazy emotions," she said in a thank you to fans after receiving her Artist of the Year award. "You are the longest and best relationship I've had."
