Taylor Swift: ‘1989’ is About the Phase after ‘Red’ – Watch Her Fusion Interview
Taylor Swift’s round of press surrounding her new single and album continues to roll out.
Yesterday, Taylor sat down with Fusion for an in-depth interview that will air tonight on Fusion’s AM Tonight at 9pm. Check out some highlights.
On the difference between RED and 1989: “[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.”
On taking 2 years in between albums: “I don’t know if I’ll stay in that holding pattern of making an album every two years. I’d like [two years] to be the minimum…because I think you need to give yourself time to change and experience things and learn lessons so you have these things to tell your fans.”
On her new single “Shake It Off”: “I want [this song] to be about the girl who’s criticizing someone in the 11th grade because she thinks her hair looks stupid and then that girl goes and cries in the bathroom because of it. These are the things that we go through in every stage of our life.”
