One of the best surprises ever is waking up to find a new music video has been released by one of my favourite artists. That surprise is multiplied by 100000000 when it’s a new Taylor Swift video!!
I was just saying to my best friend Denise last night on the phone that this is one of my favourite songs on the album. I think I could mock my past relationships basically in the same was as Taylor, and I can relate to the lyrics. “Got a long list of ex-lovers, they’ll tell you I’m insane” – yep, sounds like me right there! 😉
When Taylor was explaining the meaning behind this song at her iHeart Radio Secret Session in NYC on album release day, she said it represents the stories and stretches of the truth that the media likes to make up about her love life and past relationships. Personally, I think Taylor likes to toy with her fans and all the listeners and critics in the music industry and play up the drama of her love life, while poking a bit of fun of herself at the same time. She may claim that she is not like the girl in this song at all, but I think all girls who are hopeless romantics like myself and Taylor have a bit of insanity in them. So Taylor, I think it takes a very confident person to make fun of themselves in this manner, and it just makes me love and respect you even more (if that’s possible!).
Listen to Taylor talk about this track in an interview with Siruis XM Radio here:
So, to all those single men out there, Taylor and I have blank spaces, and we’ll write your name. 😉
