Taylor Swift Talks “Fragile” Relationship that Inspired “Out of the Woods”
When was the last time we had a nice girly gossip sesh about Taylor Swift, guys? Oh, it was last week? Whatever, I feel like sipping Starbucks and sighing over Harry Styles this morning.
Back in September, Taylor celebrated her attendance record breaking exhibit “The Taylor Swift Experience” at the GRAMMY Museum with a moodier-than-usual acoustic performance of “Out of the Woods,” and she started by talking about the relationship that inspired it.
“The number one feeling I felt in that relationship was anxiety,” she said. “Because it felt very fragile, it felt very tentative, and it always felt like ‘Okay, what’s the next roadblock? What’s the next thing that’s going to deter this? How long do we have before this just turns into an awful mess and we break up? Is it a month, is it three days?’
“I think a lot of relationships can be very solid and that’s what you hope for – solid and healthy. But that’s not always what you get. And it doesn’t mean that it’s not special and extraordinary, just to have a relationship that’s fragile and somehow meaningful in that fragility.”
So true, Tay.
