Taylor swifts single “Love story” (Released: April 10) immediately rose to No. 2 on the UK charts. The song is about a typical Romeo and Juliet heartbreak story.
Taylor Swift shares what “Love Story” is about:It’s kind of a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ story: I liked a boy and he liked me too, so I introduced him to my parents and friends. But they say “he’s not good for you” and so I was undecided about how I felt. And then I wrote this song, for him.
Taylor Swift on her first international release:Here in Europe I am definitely starting over, like I did in America when I was only 16 years old. I just hope it goes well. I didn’t even expect anyone to meet me here and I think it’s so cute that the fans are waiting in front of my hotel. It’s great to have this support from the beginning.Taylor Swift on her sound:My music is not so easy to describe. When I write a song, I only have the song in my head, what it is about, who I am writing it for, and I try to be as honest as possible, that is, to reveal my innermost being. I don’t think “that’s too pop or country or folk right now”, I just end the song like it is. I have so many ideas and inspirations that it doesn’t matter where I am.Taylor Swift on her storybook career:I’ve always dreamed of traveling the world and writing number one songs and albums, but I never imagined that it would actually come true. It’s probably the coolest thing in the world to wake up in the morning and realize that this is not a dream. That I actually get on the tour bus, stand live on stage every night and fans sing every word of my songs. It’s so amazing and I’m so grateful to the fans for making it possible.
