Taylor Swift – Lover’s Lounge (Live)


♪ ♪ [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] ♪ AND YOU’RE THE KIND OF GUY THE LADIES WANT ♪>>Taylor: HELLO. HERE WE ARE. WE ARE IN THE LOVERS LOUNGE WHICH IS OUR SECRET LAYER ATTACHED TO OUR POP-UP SHOP IN NEW YORK. I JUST WANT TO SAY FIRST OF ALL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO IS HERE. YOU WERE SELECTED FROM DIFFERENT CORNERS OF THE INTERNET AND YOU’VE KEPT THIS VERY SECRET SO FAR WHICH IS WONDERFUL. THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO WAS WATCHING FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD. THAT IS INCREDIBLE AND I REALLY APPRECIATE IT. THIS IS SO EXCITING FOR ME BECAUSE IT’S SO RARE TO GET TO EXPERIENCE THE EVENING OF AN ALBUM RELEASE YOU GUYS BECAUSE THAT’S MY DREAM. THAT IS HOW I WANT TO SPEND IT. LIVE! THE RELEASE OF A BRAND-NEW MUSIC VIDEO AND THE RELEASE OF AN ALBUM. WE HAVE SO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT. WE HAVE SO MUCH. THERE IS A LOT OF INFORMATION TO SHARE. OBVIOUSLY THE ALBUM “LOVER” WILL BE RELEASED TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. STILL A LOT OF EMOTIONS ABOUT THAT. BETWEEN NOW AND THEN I’M GOING TO BE RELEASING “LOVER” MUSIC VIDEO AND TELLING YOU ALL KINDS OF STUFF ABOUT IT AND GIVING A BEHIND THE SCENES INFORMATION ABOUT IT. THE ALBUM “LOVER” IS SOMETHING THAT I’M SO PROUD OF BECAUSE IT REALLY FEELS LIKE SUCH A SPECIAL ALBUM BECAUSE IT’S A NATURAL CONTINUATION OF A STORY OF MY LIFE AND THE WAY THE EVENTS IN MY LIFE HAVE UNFOLDED. THE LAST ALBUMS BEFORE, I LOOKED AT IT LIKE, I ALWAYS DO LIKE VISUALS THAN TO STATICS IN MY MIND OF WHAT HE ALBUM REPRESENTS. “REPUTATION” WAS LIKE A CITYSCAPE, NIGHTTIME, DARKNESS — LIKE FULL SWAMP WHICH. WITH HIS ALBUM — THIS ALBUM FELT AESTHETICALLY AND FROM AN ENERGETIC PERSPECTIVE LIKE VERY DAY TIME, VERY SUNLIT FIELDS AND WE HAVE CLUSTERS OF PINK BALLOONS. I’M SITTING ON LIKE DR. SEUSS FUZZY — IT’S GREAT. I PICTURED THIS AND WROTE MUSIC FROM A PERSPECTIVE OF LIKE A MUCH MORE OPEN JUST FREE, ROMANTIC, WHIMSICAL PLACE AND I’M SO HAPPY TO SHARE WITH THAT WITH YOU. THEY ARE 18 SONGS ON THIS ALBUM. THAT IS MORE THAN I’VE EVER PUT ON ANY ALBUM. THE ALBUM — THE ALBUM PACKAGING IS MORE EXCITING THIS TIME THAN ANYTHING WE HAVE DONE BEFORE. I REALLY THINK THAT IN THE 13TH YEAR — I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS, I HAVE A THING WITH 13. A LITTLE-KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME. NO ONE KNOWS IT. I’M NOT OBNOXIOUS ABOUT IT AT ALL, BUT IN THE 13TH YEAR OF MY CAREER I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING EXCITING AND RETROSPECTIVE AND NOSTALGIC AND WHAT MORE NOSTALGIA COULD YOU POSSIBLY HOPE FOR THAN TAKING UP YOUR OLD JOURNALS. WE HAVE A LOT OF THAT TO TALK ABOUT. I WANT TO GET INTO THAT, BUT FIRST I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO YOUTUBE. THIS IS SO COOL THAT YOU ARE DOING THIS FOR US. THANK YOU SO MUCH! GETTING TO DO THIS — I DID SOME Q&A STUFF WITH YOUTUBE LEADING UP TO THE RELEASE OF THE “ME” MUSIC VIDEOS AND WHEN THEY CAME TO ME WITH THIS IDEA I FELT LIKE SUCH A COOL WAY TO GET TO SPEND THE ALBUM RELEASE EVE TOGETHER, SO I’M SO GRATEFUL. I CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH. EVERYONE AT YOUTUBE AND EVERYONE WHO DESIGNED THIS SET, DID IT FOR US AND YOU GUYS FOR TRAVELING FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND WORLD AND YOU GUYS WATCHING. I’M VERY EXCITED. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WANTED TO SHOW YOU GUYS SOME THINGS BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT TO TALK ABOUT SO I WILL JUST GET RIGHT INTO IT. WE HAVE SOME LIKE HE WENT A STUFF, WE HAVE A LIVE PERFORMANCE LATER, A SPECIAL GUEST LATER. THERE IS SO MUCH. I WANTED TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE DELUXE EDITION OF THIS ALBUM. I WENT THROUGH MY OLD DIARIES WHICH WAS A WILD TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE. LET ME JUST TELL YOU. I FOUND SO MANY DIARY ENTRIES THAT I THOUGHTS MAY BE RELEVANT TO YOUR INTERESTS. I STARTED WRITING IN DIARIES WHEN I WAS 13, SO THESE ARE THE — THIS ON ONE HAND. THESE ARE THE FOUR DELUXE EDITIONS OF THIS ALBUM AND EACH ONE CONTAINS 30 PAGES OF MY DIARY ENTRIES FROM MY LIFE. METAPHORICALLY I HAVE BEEN SHARING MY DIARIES WITH YOU FOR YEARS SO I FIGURED WHY NOT JUST DO IT FOR REAL? JUST TAKE THE SYMBOLISM OUT OF IT AND NOT MAKE IT A METAPHOR ANYMORE. I WAS THINKING MAYBE I WOULD READ USE OF THEM. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] ONE SECOND. LET ME JUST. THEY ARE FROM ALL DIFFERENT AGES IN MY LIFE. WE WILL START WITH AUGUST 25TH, 2003, 13 YEARS OF AGE. THIS ONE SAYS, “I THINK I MIGHT JUST LIVE THROUGH THIS YEAR. I JUST HOPE I CAN KEEP UP! MY LOCKER IS 117 AM I COMBINATION IS 35-9-27. I LOVE BEING OLDER! I THINK MY TEACHER IS GOING TO GIVE ME A SPOTLIGHT SOLO AND CHORUS. THIS YEAR COULD BE FUN. I DON’T CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF ME NOW BECAUSE I WON’T LET THEM BRING ME DOWN. “13. SO INNOCENT. THIS IS THE NEXT ONE. THIS IS AGE 19. MARCH 17TH 2009. I SOMEHOW FEEL LIKE IT’S MY DESTINY TO ROLL MY EYES AT HAPPY COUPLES AND PRESENT VALENTINE’S DAY. I ALSO FEEL LIKE I’M THE GIRL BEFORE THE ONE, I’M NOT “THE ONE” I’M THE ONE YOU THINK IS THE ONE FOR YOU AND WHEN IT DOESN’T WORK OUT WITH ME BEING ME THE NEXT GIRL AND REALIZE SHE IS THE ONE. THE ONE YOU WILL STAY WITH. I MIGHT GET MARRIED, BUT I THINK IT’S ULTIMATELY MY FEET TO LIGHT CANDLES AND PINE AWAY AND ROLL MY EYES AT HAPPY COUPLES AND PRESENT VALENTINE’S DAY. [APPLAUSE] THERE WE ARE. THAT’S NOT EMBARRASSING. THE NEXT ONE IS — THE 13-YEAR-OLD ONES ARE PRETTY GOLDEN. PRETTY EASY TO SHARE. OCTOBER 5TH 2003, WHY AM I MISSING PENNSYLVANIA? 13 YEARS OF AGE. “I REALLY HAVE DECIDED THAT SCHOOL IS A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. IT’S ONLY COOL WHEN YOU ARE POPULAR AND I’M NOT. IT’S COOL WHEN YOU HAVE A BOYFRIEND AND AT SCHOOL AND EVERYBODY LIKES YOU, I DON’T HAVE THAT. MY EXTRACURRICULAR LIFE IS WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO ME. I GUESS I’M JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR PEOPLE MY OWN AGE OR MAYBE I’M NOT BAD ENOUGH? PEACE SIGN. [LAUGHTER] OKAY, ALL RIGHT. OKAY. THIS ONE IS REALLY IMPORTANT MOMENT IN MY LIFE. OCTOBER 30TH 2011 AGE 21. “TONIGHT WE PLAYED IN MEMPHIS AND HAD A CHEST INFECTION SO SINGING HAS BEEN HARD. LAST NIGHT MY VOICE KEPT QUITTING ON ME GOING ALL RASPY OR NOT BEING ABLE TO HIT THE HIGH NOTES. I AM MUST CANCEL TONIGHT’S SHOW BUT I MADE IT THROUGH. I WENT INTO A FEW COUGHING FITS BUT I SOUNDED BETTER THAN LAST NIGHT. WE’VE ALREADY PLAYED THREE SHOWS AND NASHVILLE, LOUISVILLE, LEXINGTON, ON THE OF NINE SHE WAS LEFT ON THE TOUR AND I’M READY FOR A BREAK. I HAVEN’T TWO SONGS ON THE LAST FEW DAYS AND I WANT TO RECORD THEM BUT MY VOICE IS SHOT. I’M JUST SO GLAD I HAVE A FEW DAYS OFF. OKAY, TWO. GUESS WHAT I’M DOING TOMORROW? GETTING A KITTEN! [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] I WANTED A CAT FOR SO LONG AND I’M FINALLY DOING IT. I LOVE SCOTTISH FOLDS. I LOOK UP INTERNET VIDEOS OF THEM. THEY ARE SO CUTE AND THEY LOVE HUMANS. I’M GOING TO GET THIS LITTLE KITTEN TOMORROW MORNING, I’M NAMING HER MEREDITH. MEREDITH GRAY BECAUSE SHE IS GREAT. THAT IS MY DAUGHTER. THOSE ARE JUST SOUND. I WANTED TO SAVE SOME OF THE ONES THAT I REALLY THINK THAT YOU SHOULD READ YOURSELF. OR ONE YOU READ THEM YOURSELF. I THOUGHT IT BE COOL TO OPEN UP SOME QUESTIONS THAT THE FANS HAVE ASKED ME ON YOUTUBE. SEND IN QUESTIONS. THE FIRST QUESTION IS FROM SNOO SNOOP. “WHAT DO YOU LIKE DRAWING THE MOST?” LET ME TELL YOU. STARS, HEARTS, CATS, THAT IS MY REPERTOIRE PRETTY MUCH. FLOWERS SOMETIMES. THERE IS A LOT OF DOODLES IN THESE THAT I REALLY THINK MUST BE SEEN FOR MANY REASONS. I WILL LEAVE YOU TO DECIDE WHICH OF MY DRAWINGS ARE VERY BASIC ARE YOUR FAVORITE. QUESTION NUMBER TWO IS “WHICH SONG IS CLOSEST TO YOUR HEART?” THIS IS KIND OF AN ALBUM WHERE EVERY SONG IS REALLY, REALLY CLOSE TO MY HEART. THEY ARE SO MANY THAT YOU HAVEN’T HEARD YET THAT I’M SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO HEAR. THERE IS ONE CALLED “CORNELIA STREET” THAT I LOVE. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS ON THIS ALBUM THAT I WANT YOU TO HEAR AND IT’S REALLY HARD TO PICK A FAVORITE. THEY ARE ALL CLOSE TO MY HEART. IT’S CALLED “LOVER.” AS A HEART SHAPED ALBUM. THIS IS AN AMAZING QUESTION! “LOVER” THE ALBUM WAS A CATS CHARACTER, WHICH ONE WOULD IT B BE? WOW. I CAN’T REALLY DO THIS WITHOUT A PROCESS OF THE FIRST ALBUM WOULD BE VICTORIA THE LITTLE WHITE CA CAT, “FEARLESS” WOULD BE JEMIMA. “SPEAK NOW” WOULD BE THE THEATER CAT BECAUSE THAT WAS A THEATER INSPIRED ALBUM. “RED” WOULD BE BUMBLE ARENA. [APPLAUSE] “1989” WOULD BE THE MAGICAL. HE HAS A LOT OF POWERS BUT HE DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO CONTROL THE THEM. “REPUTATION” WOULD BE GRIZABELL GRIZABELLA. THANK YOU FOR THESE QUESTIONS BUT I ENJOYED THAT QUESTION MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE SO WE CAN MOVE ONTO THE NEXT ONE. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO AN ASPIRING SINGER AND SONGWRITER? IT’S A LIVE SHOW. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO AN ASPIRING SINGER AND SONGWRITER? I WOULD SAY, TRY YOUR BEST TO OWN YOUR OWN WORK. IT’S SOMETHING THAT NOBODY TOLD ME ABOUT EARLY ON. IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, START WRITING YOUR OWN SONGS. BE INVOLVED IN THE CREATIVE PROCESS BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE A WRITER OF YOUR OWN SONGS YOU OWN THOSE SONGS AND YOU CONTROL LIKE — FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE IF A MOVIE WANTS TO USE YOUR SONG, IF YOU ARE THE WRITER YOU CAN SAY YES OR NO TO THAT. BEING A WRITER GIVES YOU MORE OF A CONTROL OF YOUR OWN LEGACY. IT’S ALSO REALLY FUN TO WRITE SONGS AND I REALLY SUGGEST IT TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BE A SINGER. TRY YOUR HAND AT WRITING. SIT DOWN WITH AN INSTRUMENT AND SEE IF YOU TAKE TO IT AND IF NOT KEEP TRYING BECAUSE I REALLY WANT YOU GUYS TO BE ABLE TO TELL YOUR OWN STORIES. I FOUND IT REALLY HELPS ME. IT’S ONE OF THE MOST CATHARTIC, HEALING, THERAPEUTIC THINGS I’VE EVER DONE. I WISH THAT FOR ALL OF YOU AND ONE OF THE REASONS I WANTED TO DO THE JOURNALS AS A PART OF THIS ALBUM RELEASE IS IF YOU WANTED TO WRITE IN THOSE JOURNALS AND WRITE YOUR FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS DOWN. IF IT’S SOMETHING THAT WAS HELPFUL FOR ME. I JUST… I THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THAT. WHAT SONG WAS THE HARDEST TO WRITE? THERE IS A SONG CALLED “SOON YOU WILL GET BETTER” THAT WAS REALLY HARD TO WRITE AND ALSO A FAMILY DECISION WHETHER TO PUT IT ON THE BOMB. ALBUM. I THINK SONGS THAT ARE LIKE THAT, MAY BE EMOTIONALLY HARD TO WRITE AND SING BECAUSE THEY ARE REALLY TRUE. WE AS A FAMILY DECIDED TO PUT THIS ON THE ALBUM AND IT’S SOMETHING I’M SO PROUD OF, BUT IT’S LIKE REALLY HARD. I CAN’T SING IT. IT’S HARD TO JUST EMOTIONALLY DEAL WITH THAT SONG. YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN IN A COUPLE OF HOURS. A QUESTION — HOW DO YOU DECIDE ALBUM TITLES? THANK YOU FOR ASKING THIS. I DECIDE AND ALBUM TITLE BASED ON SOMETHING THAT I FEEL LIKE HAS A NICE RING TO IT AND A THEME. I BASICALLY LIKE TO PLAN AN ALBUM LIKE I’M PLANNING SOME TYPE OF PROM OR SOMETHING. I LIKE TO THINK OF LIKE HOW THE SHOWS ARE GOING TO LOOK AND HOW THE ALBUM IMAGERY WILL LOCK AND THE COLORS INVOLVED. IT’S VERY MOOD BORED HOW I GO ABOUT — I WRITE THE MUSIC AND THEN I REALLY TRY TO THINK OF WHAT IS THE TITLE THAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE THIS? THE ONLY TIME I’VE EVER STARTED WITH A TITLE WAS “REPUTATION.” THAT WAS THE FIRST THING I KNEW THAT THE ALBUM WAS GOING TO BE CALLED “REPUTATION” SO I WROTE THE SONGS ARE ON TITLE, BUT WITH THIS ALBUM I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE CALLED “DAYLIGHT” AND THEN I WROTE “LOVER” AND I WAS LIKE, THAT’S THE TITLE! THE ALBUM STARTED TO ORGANIZE ITSELF IN A WAY THAT MADE SENSE THAT THAT SONG WOULD BE THE FLAGSHIP SONG OF THIS ALBUM. IT’S A REALLY ROMANTIC ALBUM, BUT ALSO AN ALBUM THAT CELEBRATES LOVE AND ALL OF ITS COMPLEXITIES, NOT JUST FLOWERS AND SUNSHINE BUT IT’S AN EXPLORATION OF LIFE. THE PATCHWORK QUILT OF EMOTIONS THAT GO INTO ANY SORT OF LOVE THAT YOU FEEL. GUYS, SOMETHING VERY EXCITING IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. WE HAVE A SPECIAL GUESTS. I AM SO LUCKY THAT THIS PERSON IS HERE. WE ARE ALL SO LUCKY SHE IS HERE BECAUSE SHE IS ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRING PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. USING HER POWERS FOR GOOD AND SETTING SUCH AN EXAMPLE ENVIRONMENTALLY. SHE IS HONESTLY ONE OF MY FAVORITE HUMANS IN THE WORLD AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE DESIGNERS. I’M SO HAPPY SHE IS HERE. THIS IS SO INCREDIBLE. THE DESIGNER OF STELLAxTAYLORSWIFT LINE OF CLOTHING WE HAVE COMING UP THIS WEEK, STELLA McCARTHY IS HERE. MAKE SOME NOISE! [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] ♪ YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN, YOU’RE BEING TOO LOUD ♪>>Stella: HI GUYS. YOU ALL ACT LIKE YOU KNOW WHO I AM. THANK YOU FOR CLAPPING FOR ME.>>Taylor: THEY DEFINITELY DO. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE IN NEW YORK. YOU HAVE DESIGNED AN AMAZING LINE THAT — ONLY THINGS I WANT TO TALK ABOUT.>>Stella: LET’S DO THAT AGAIN AGAIN.>>Taylor: I WAS WANTING TO ASK YOU WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO MAKE THIS LINE AND I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.>>Stella: YOU! YOU CAME OVER AND YOU PLAYED SOME OF THE ALBUM TO ME AND I GOT A SNEAK PREVIEW. I WAS TOLD THAT IF I TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT I WOULD BE KILLED.>>Taylor: I JUST IMPLIED IT WITH MY FACE.>>Stella: IT WAS THE LUCK.>>Taylor: SHE HAS NAME CHECKED IN A SONG CALLED “LONDON BOY” SO I WANTED TO PLAY HER THAT SONG AND LET HER KNOW AND SEE IF SHE WAS OKAY WITH IT AND IT TURNS OUT YOU WERE REALLY OKAY WITH THAT. SHE WAS LIKE LET’S DO SOMETHING. THIS IS SO INSPIRING AND SHE WAS LIKE I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO LIKE A MERCHANT LINE.>>Stella: OBVIOUSLY I WAS INSPIRED BY YOU AND THE SONGS AND THE TITLE “LOVER” COULDN’T BE MORE INSPIRING AND THAT IS WHY WE ARE ALL HERE BECAUSE OUR PARENTS HAD SOME LUMBAR EXPERIENCE. [LAUGHTER] YOU HAD SUCH A SPECIFIC [LAUGHTER] STOP NOW. GET IT OUT OF YOUR HEAD. IT’S NOT SOMETHING YOU WANT TO VISUALIZE. YOU HAD SUCH A SPECIFIC KIND OF MOOD BOARD AND IT REALLY REMINDED ME OF BEING A KID ON THE ROAD WITH MY FAMILY WHO ALSO SHARES SOME OF THE INDUSTRY TO YOURS. THE SUMMER OF LOVE AND ALL THESE COLLARS AND AIRBRUSHING AND ALSO — THE SONG TITLES AS WELL WERE REALLY INSPIRING SO WE DID THIS WHOLE MERCH TOUR VISUAL, –>>Taylor: BUT WITH YOUR STANDARDS. STELLA IS VERY ECO-FRIENDLY. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD TELL US ABOUT THAT AND HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS TO YOU.>>Stella: THE FIRST THING I SAID WHEN I WAS EXCITED WAS CAN I DO IT IN THE SAME WAY THAT MATCHES MY ETHICS? I WAS REALLY, REALLY ADAMANT THAT WE HAD TO HAVE AN ENVIRONMENTAL POINT OF VIEW. I’M SO PROUD THAT WE MANAGED TO DO IT. THIS IS STUFF THAT ALL OF YOU GUYS CAN GET AND HAVE ACCESS TO WHICH I’M SO HAPPY ABOUT, ALL THE JERSEYS ARE ORGANIC. COTTON ENDED SUPEREGO SO THE MESSAGE IS NOT ONLY ONE OF LOVE BUT BEING A REAL CONSCIOUS CONSUMER WHICH I THINK IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO US.>>Taylor: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT AND EVERYTHING YOU DO! [APPLAUSE] WE WERE WONDERING IF YOU GUYS WANTED TO GO — IF YOU WANTED TO SHOW YOU THE LINE. WOULD YOU WANT THAT? WE ARE GOING TO TAKE THE CAMERAS ON A TOUR OF THE POP UP SHOP AND SHOW WHAT YOU GUYS LATER AFTERWARD. DON’T EVEN THINK WE WON’T DO THAT. WE ARE GOING TO GO ON A LITTLE ADVENTURE AND WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK.>>Stella: WE’VE BEEN WORKING FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS ON EVERYTHING, AND THIS IS THE FIRST CHANCE WE’VE GOT TO KIND OF SHOW YOU AND GET YOUR FEEDBACK. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT SEQUINS?>>Taylor: HOW DO I FEEL ABOUT SEQUINS?>>Stella: WELL, YOU OBVIOUSLY LIKE — WHAT A STUPID QUESTION.>>Taylor: WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR ME TO WRITE THIS ALBUM, I NAME CHECKED YOU IN ONE OF THE LYRICS. IT’S SO SICK. I’M SO EXCITED.>>Stella: IT’S SO AMAZING. IT’S REALLY PULLING OUT THE LYRICS AND KIND OF ISOLATING THEM AND GIVING THEM SOME WEIGHT, IF YOU LIKE. IT’S NICE THAT WE THOUGHT TO DO THAT.>>Taylor: AND NOT JUST THE OBVIOUS ONES, LIKE THE THIRD LINE OF THE SECOND VERSE.>>Stella: BECAUSE THEY HAVE MEANING BEYOND THE MOMENT, THAT WILL LIVE ON BEYOND THIS COLLABORATION. THAT IS WHAT WILL STAY WITH PEOPLE. WHAT I REALLY WANT AT THE END OF THIS COLLABORATION IS FOR PEOPLE TO KEEP IT FOREVER, REALLY CHERISH AND FEEL IT, TO FEEL WHAT WE’VE DONE. I THINK THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT.>>Taylor: COMPLETELY.>>Taylor: HERE WE ARE IN THE STELLAxTAYLORSWIFT POP UP SHOP IN NEW YORK CITY. YOU ARE HOLDING BUT I THINK IS YOUR FAVORITE –>>Stella: I AM STEALING. I’M HOLDING IT WITH THE INTENT TO STEAL IT. MY FAVORITE PART OF THE COLLABORATION, STELLAxTAYLORSWIFT WATER BOTTLE BECAUSE FOR ME THEY ARE THE COOLEST ACCESSORY TO HAVE. LESS PLASTIC ON HER PLANET AND THIS GUY IS DOING IT.>>Taylor: IT’S A GOOD WATER BOTTLE. HE SAID, WE HAVE TO DO WATER BOTTLES! I WAS LIKE YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.>>Stella: YOU CAN HAVE THAT FOR YOUR MANY CHILDREN.>>Taylor: HERE WE HAVE THESE SHIRTS. TELL US ABOUT YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THESE BECAUSE I LOVE WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM.>>Stella: IT’S FUNNY. I AM A SUMMER OF LOVE CHILD AND I WANTED TO REFERENCE LIKE THE T-SHIRTS BECAUSE YOU ARE A ROCKER CHICK AND I WANTED TO SHOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THE ALBUM THAT I LOVE. ALL OF YOUR COLORATION AND THE INSPIRATION THAT YOU BROUGHT, IT WAS SO CLEAR. IT WAS KIND OF A NO-BRAINER. THESE AIRBRUSH PIECES REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD ACTUALLY.>>Taylor: IT’S REALLY COOL. IT HAS A LOT OF WHIMSY TO IT. ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO TO YOUR CLOSE, IT’S ROMANTIC AND PLAYFUL, IT’S CHEEKY.>>Stella: TO KNOW WHAT’S AMAZING ABOUT THESE? THESE ARE THE FIRST MERCH PIECES THAT I’VE EVER DONE THAT ARE COMPLETELY ORGANIC. I’M SO PROUD OF.>>Taylor: I LOVE THAT YOU STAND FOR THAT AND I LOVE THAT EVEN WHEN YOU ARE MAKING BAGS AND SHOES IT’S ALL VEGAN AND EVERYTHING YOU DO IS SO — AT CITING SUCH A GOOD EXAMPLE.>>Stella: AND YOU CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE. THERE IS SO MUCH EMBROIDERY AND –>>Taylor: WE HAVE THIS SECTION OVER HERE WITH THIS BOMBER JACKET THAT I LOVE. I ALSO SELFISHLY JUST LOVE MY YOUNG SON. LOOK AT HIM.>>Stella: ONE OF THE THINGS WE WANTED TO DO WAS TO MAKE IT REALLY GENDERLESS. FOR ME IT’S LIKE BOYS, GIRLS, EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE IT. THEY SHOULD WEAR IT EVERY DAY.>>Taylor: AND THEY POP UP SHOP WE WANTED TO MAKE IT FUN FOR PEOPLE TO WALK THROUGH AND SAY DIFFERENT THINGS SO THAT’S AN OUTFIT FROM “LOVER” MUSIC VIDEO THAT HAS NOT COME OUT YET.

IT WILL BE THE ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT’S “LOVER” MUSIC VIDEO. WHATEVER. THIS IS A VIDEO I CODIRECTED, HE’S A YOUNG GENIUS WHO I DID THE “CALM DOWN” VIDEO WITH AND HE’S INCREDIBLE AND WE WORK TOGETHER AGAIN. THE LEADING MAN IN THIS VIDEO IS SOMEONE I HAVE PERFORMED ON STAGE WITH FOUR YEARS, HE WAS THE LEADING MAN IN THE KING OF MY HEART PERFORMANCE. HE IS AMAZING. EVERY NIGHT I CAN SEE HOW EXPRESSIVE HE IS AND HOW HEROIC AND WHAT AN AMAZING ACTOR HE IS AS WELL AS BEING AN INCREDIBLE DANCER. I WANT TO TELL YOU GUYS, HE’S AN AMAZING MUSICIAN.

FOLLOW HIM AND SUPPORT HIM AND LOVE HIM. HE IS ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED PEOPLE I’VE EVER MET. THIS VIDEO AND THE CALM DOWN VIDEO, THE DIRECTOR IS INCREDIBLE WITH THE COLOR BLOCKING AND MAKING A VIDEO THAT IS SO AESTHETICALLY PLEASING FROM A COLOR STANDPOINT BUT YOU CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY. HAS BRAIN WORKS AND MAGICAL WAYS. THAT WAS A VERY VIBRANT VIDEO AND WITH THIS ONE WE WANTED TO GO MORE MUTED. THIS ENTIRE CONCEPT CAME FROM A LYRIC I WROTE ON THE “1989” ALBUM CALLED “YOU ARE IN LOVE” THIS IS A SONG I WROTE ABOUT TWO OF MY BEST FRIENDS WHO WERE IN LOVE AND I SAW THE RELATIONSHIP AND I THOUGHT, THAT IS BEAUTIFUL. WHAT YOU HAVE IS BEAUTIFUL AND THERE IS A LINE I WAS PROUD OF THAT SAYS “AND SO IT GOES YOU TWO ARE DANCING IN A SNOW GLOBE ROUND AND ROUND” THAT LINE INSPIRE THE ENTIRE MUSIC VIDEO CONCEPT FOR THIS VIDEO SO I REALLY HOPE YOU LOVE IT. IT’S A CONCEPT I’M SO PROUD OF. I LOVE MY COLLABORATORS ON THIS AND I’M SO, SO HAPPY THAT THIS VIDEO IS COMING OUT LITERALLY LIKE SO SOON. IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. I HAVE TO THANK YOU YOUTUBE AGAIN.

    congratulations Taylor Swift I love you

  9. I’ve listened album over and over again and it’s remembering me old taylor.

  10. I'm trying to find those sequin pants in the store and having a hard time lol. Probably because I can't search items and nothing is really 'out' yet. Still 19 hours left.

  11. She's one of the most successful women I know in the industry and still, I hear her talk and it's like listening to myself (something familiar, that hits home), or someone close to me talking about their passion. I love her spirit so much!

  12. Love you Taylor I am so happy for your success of Lover 💕 is espectacular i hear it all the nights before going to sleep , the songs are beautiful 👏👏👏👏👏

  13. I love it when Stella says she wants people to keep it forever! That kind of merch is my favorite.

  14. 6:50 wow. Can’t believe she felt that way. I thought that was just me. 😅

  15. Her eyes look sadder. She must have her mom on her mind all the time. I hope her mom gets better, she is a sweet lady and seems like a great mom to her.

  16. write your favorite thing about taylor swift in the comment below in the replies please

  17. fam, i did a music video for Soon, You'll Get Better.

    i draw with sand.

    you could see if you wanna. Thank you whether you open it or nah.
    Lovely day, stranger

    -w

  18. I'm excited that you are excited about the album. Keep shining love.

  19. What are those songs she'll be having live at the VMA? She said that it's not been sung here.

  20. The point of Conscious consumer… 17:49 I think half of the audience missed that, Youtube suggested this. I skipped ahead. I found that. I stopped going to the next video to leave this comment.

  21. I can't see u now but soon , I wish 😊😊😊
    I love you Taylor swift from
    Philippines😊😊😊

  22. I still can't listen to Soon You'll Get Better without getting teary eyed. You can just hear her passion, emotions, sadness, etc. It's so heartfelt and real. I can't imagine the pain she's going through dealing with her mom's struggle.

  23. I don't care what people think of me now because i won't let them bring me down

  24. COME TO BOGOTA #COLOMBIA ON YOUR NEXT TOUR PLEASE TAY ♡

  25. No hate to Taylor or lover she's amazing and talented I'm so proud of her but 1989 is still my favorite album 💕

  26. I do the same when naming things or making decisions! It’s just so fun to look at it that way.

  27. Please pray for an Amazing childhood friend who has just been diagnosed with colon cancer and her family.

    https ://www.gofundme.com/f/me7rpj-shawnastrong

  28. Speak Now Album should have been Enchanted

    Lover Album should have been Daylight

    Imagine if it wasn't changed, tours should have been named Enchanted Tour and Daylight Tour ♥️

    Apparently Daylight is my favorite track from Lover, and so is Enchanted from Speak Now. What theeee!

  29. The remix version of YNTCD playing in the background at 20:50 is lit 🔥

  30. watching all taylor's new interviews because she deprived us during reputation and i miss her lol

  31. What the heck is an archer? Is she talking about the cartoon or someone who plays archery?

  32. Taylor!! Post the equality act.
    We love your voice. Please read it to us.
    #equalityact

  33. She said it's a secret place even that she told everyone that where we are it's at NEW YORK

  34. Gays have become an accessory for many especially Taylor Swift. A fake woke moment. This is the white old girl power movement trying so hard to be woke. Katy and Taylor are now suddenly realizing their getting old. Better.pull a Madonna moment and become gay supporters. Lol 😂

  35. I wish i could meet u once in my life…. living in pakistan is so difficult..

  36. I love Taylor. She is the most awesome popstar in the world 🗺. Ahh I m soooo happy and excited. Best popstar forever.
