Did we all gloss over the fact that the entire performance of Shake It Off was about guys chasing after her/her being surrounded by boys and then she ditches the boys and goes over to her girls in the band to dance and have a fun time………..
There’s a clear message here..
“No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”
Taylor Swift arriving at the 2012 American Music Awards
"I really thought that if I ended up on a really big stage someday singing songs that I wrote for a lot of people, I wouldn’t have to deal with mean kids or bullies anymore. But that’s not how things happen, it turns out. And when I grew up, I’ve realized recently that meanness isn’t a phase that people are going through, it’s part of the human condition. It’s something that we’re going to have to deal with our entire lives." [x]
A lot of people ask me, ‘How did you have the courage to walk up to record labels when you were 12 or 13 and jump right into the music industry?' It's because I knew I could never feel the kind of rejection that I felt in middle school. Because in the music industry, if they're gonna say no to you, at least they're gonna be polite about it.
But I just can’t stop cruising. Can’t stop, won’t stop grooving…
