What Triggered Taylor Swift’s Break Up Song?
Break-up advice from Taylor Swift? You bet! The singer shares some info below as far as how long should it take to get over an ex:
“I think it’s double the amount of time you were with them,” she said. “For me, just take the amount of time you were with them and times it by two, or seven.”
However, Swift had definitely had enough when she finally did break it off with the unnamed ex who inspired the lead single off Red.
“Well I wrote this song with Max Martin and Shellback, which didn’t hurt at all,” she said. “This actually happened. When we were in the middle of writing a different song and this guy walked into this studio randomly and he’s like, ‘I’m friends with your ex-boyfriend. I heard you guys are getting back together.’ But as soon as he left, I just started going on this rant. So Max said, ‘You seem really passionate about it. You should write a song about it.’ We just created this song in like 30 minutes. It came from a very real place and it came from a very spontaneous situation.”
Talk about making some lemonade! Go Taylor!
