You are very close with Taylor Swift and danced in her “Look What You Made Me Do” video. Are you open to doing something bigger with her?
I think that anybody on the planet who would not be open to collaborating with Taylor Swift would not be a very smart artist. She’s such a sweet person, such a genius writer and also just a genius businesswoman. I would love to collaborate with her. And I think it will happen. We collaborated on her video but artist to artist I think will happen one day but I want it to be the right thing, the right time. Who knows what album it will be or what project it will be, but I definitely don’t think this is the end for “Taydrick,” which is what I call our ship name. I think doing a song with her would be really awesome, but maybe predictable. I think maybe doing something that’s out of the box would be more fun for both of us.
She is a really cool chick and our friendship is so important to me. She’s been friends with me for times when some of my friends who have been my friend since I was in high school have not. I think to me, especially in this industry, that is worth more than gold. I’m single; I’m not in a relationship so my friends are my relationship. I just want to make sure that Taylor and I stay friends for a long time because I really value who she is as a human being.
Has she ever given you any really good advice about your career that has really stuck with you?
When she got done with her last album, before she made this album, she was like “I just want to have life experiences and write about those things.” And I think that’s the reason why her music is always so successful and always seems so real and true and authentic, because she writes everything. People sometime ask me “how does she feel about this? How does she feel about that?” and I think that everything that she feels can be taken from her album; that’s why she puts it out. That is her life experience, her pain, her joy, her happiness, Everything that she feels, she writes it in her lyrics and her melodies. She also told me that she doesn’t try to outdo herself; she just follows each zig with a zag. So I took that little tidbit from her.

simalary: yeah, TSL does not like outside links. I posted an announcement to the ...Ready For It? BloodPop remix video and got a warning.

neoswiftie: yeah clickable links are a big Nono on TSL, but even non clickable links in the comments are getting warnings... on the other hand they allowed the link to a file in google documents that contained illegal copyrighted material

neoswiftie: I would have reported it... if they hadn't given me a warning, but if a link to the best moderated forum in history isn't allowed, they must be convinced that their moderating is better, wouldn't want to burst that bubble

davepastern: The Ready for it... video was good (but I loved Ghost in the Shell so that was gonna always be a given lol), not really a fan of End Game (the song or video). Sorry, but it's my least favourite song on Reputation, and joins the ranks of a few other songs
Jan 14, 2018 8:42:01 GMT -5
davepastern: that I dislike (should've said no, better than revenge, holy ground, and style).
Jan 14, 2018 8:42:32 GMT -5
neoswiftie: no need to be sorry, wasn't my favorite song on reputation either, but I do love the video, especially the London sequence
