What Does Taylor Swift Want 'Shake It Off' To Be About? Find Out Here!

Taylor Swift grabs some fresh air on the top of the Empire State Building just ahead of her live stream on Monday afternoon (August 18) in New York City.

The 24-year-old singer spoke with Fusion after the big event, where she premiered her new single, “Shake It Off”, and chatted about the single and her upcoming album, 1989.

“[RED] was a devastating record,” she shared with the program about her previous 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.”

Taylor added about her new song, “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.”

    I get what Taylor saying about criticism and how we all go through it. I just wish she could have put it in a more mature way instead of comparing it to 11th grade in high school. She’s not maturing. She’s going backwards.

    Wonder what the country folks are thinking of their Taylor now that she jumped ship to pop music?

    She was only country for maybe 5 minutes anyway. She still can’t sing but she does know how to get into tweens heads (and others) and make millions off them.
