What Inspired Taylor Swift To Write ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ ?
Taylor Swift recently released a new breakup anthem entitled ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ and while she has left her fans speculating which one of her ex-boyfriends inspired the song, she did explain exactly how they inspired it to ‘Nightline’s’ Cynthia McFadden.
“Writing ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ was one of the most hilarious experiences I have ever had in the studio because it just happened so naturally,” Swift explained.
She continued to reveal how it all came about telling McFadden that she wrote it with Max Martin and Johan Shellback after a friend of her ex’s walked in and began discussing their relationship.
“He starts talking about how he’s heard we were getting back together and that was not the case,” Swift said. ”When he leaves, Max and Johan are like, ‘so what’s the story behind that?’ And so I start telling them the story of break up, get back together, break up, get back together, just, ugh, the worst.”
“Max says, ‘this is what we’re writing. We’re writing this song,’ and I picked up the guitar and just started singing, ‘we are never–’” she continued. “It just happened so fast. It was so much fun.”
Swift and McFadden’s full interview will air later this fall on ‘Good Morning America’ and ‘Nightline.’ She will also perform ‘Red’ concerts on ‘Good Morning America’ on October 22nd and October 23rd.
‘Red’ will hit shelves on October 22nd.
