It’s hard to say which time he’s talking about. He’s one of the most charismatic people I know, so he doesn’t need much help. But, you know, any time that I can be a good bro-friend, I’m there to step up to the plate. He’s one of my best friends, and honestly the most talented person that I know. I feel very lucky to have him in my life.

I want this song to go out in the world and not be about my critics, I want it to be about the girl who’s criticizing someone in eleventh grade because she thinks that her hair looks stupid. And that girl then goes and like cries in the bathroom because of it. These are things that we go through in every phase of our lives, starting a new job and there’s just someone who has it out for you. And I hope that maybe, you know, I had a lot of days when I would come home from school, and get in the car and my mom would try so hard to console me ‘cause someone had made fun of me or something had said something about me, or not invited me to something I was dying to go to. And she would always try to find songs that bring me out of that, and music always helped distract me from that, so I think my greatest hope is that this started out being about my life and I just want it to go out into cars, and speakers, and your phones, and become about their lives.

I think it’s about taking pride in the fact that you know who you are and it honestly doesn’t matter if someone else doesn’t understand you.

What I’m gonna say about it is… that it is quite simply, as someone who’s a fan of pop music, it is joyous. It is such a great record. Honestly, it’s so good.

I think my life has changed in ways that have surprised me. You know, deciding to spend my time in New York, cutting my hair, becoming all of a sudden surrounded by this great group of strong, beautiful, smart women who challenge me and push me forward. Those are all changes in my life, and you know, I think with this album, I try not to do anything too overtly, like yes my life is consisting of priority on friends right now, but I dont have any song that’s like, Best Friends Anthem!, like I really am trying to put these messages across subtlety and tell stories where kind of those aspects of my life are felt rather than kind of said to you.

Writing ‘Red’, I was 21 and 22 and back then I think my priorities were different. My priorities were, I was very enamored by romance and the idea of that. At 24, at this point, I’m just really like, I just want to be with my friends, and I wanna make music, and I wanna play shows, and I wanna travel the world, and I want to define my life on my own terms. That’s my list of priorities now which is different than it was a couple years ago.

The message in the song (Shake It Off) is a problem I think we all deal with and an issue that we deal with on a daily basis. That we don’t live just in a celebrity take down culture, WE live in a take down culture. People will find anything about you and twist it to where it’s weird or wrong or annoying or strange or bad. You have to not only live your life in spite of people who don’t understand you, you have to have more fun than they do.

[RED] was a devastating record. It was about dealing with an intense heartbreak and ‘1989’ is about the phase after that where you brush yourself off and you’re ok.

…it just was a coping mechanism to think really hard about how I want to look at my life; if I really wanted to be one of those celebrity types that constantly complains about being gossipped about when I could just live my life inside of it and have fun regardless.

I was listening to a lot of late 80’s pop, because I really loved the chances they were taking I loved how bold they were. So being inspired by that I started delving into the late 80’s - and what I found was that it was apparently a time of limitless potential. And the idea that you can do what you want, be who you want, wear what you want, love what you want - bright colors, bold chances, rebellion. The idea of that was so inspiring to me…but basically in thinking about that, and thinking about how this new album is a bit of a rebirth for me because it’s so now. I’ve never really made these kinds of changes before. And having been born on December 13th, 1989…this album is called 1989.

It takes a long time to figure out who you are and where you fit in in the world. I’m putting myself in all these awkward situations where the dancers are incredible, and I’m having fun with it, but not fitting in. They’re doing the most beautiful things, and I’m being embarrassingly bad at it. It shows you to keep doing you, keep being you, keep trying to figure out where you fit in in the world, and eventually you will

It was so much fun. I woke up every day of that shoot and couldn’t wait to get to set. We had twerking, which was so funny. Those girls were trying to teach me how, and it’s just never gonna happen. I tried really hard. They were teaching me what they do, and there’s like a science to it – they’re like digging their heels into the floor without you seeing their legs move, but their butts’ moving. It’s mind-blowing to me. They were explaining it all to me, and it’s so above my comprehension of how to understand your body.
