Didn't anyone just assume that Taylor Swift was being theatrical?
That would of been the best route to take for Taylor Swift explaining the song “Bad Blood” actual meaning when asked by Rolling Stone magazine in 2014. It would be possible that the song isn’t about anyone at all, and is just a theatrical kind of theme that was just about any time that kind of thing could happen for anyone at all. Taylor Swift did say when asked if the song was specifically about Katy Perry, that the song ‘Doesn’t point at any one person’, however that leads people to believe that the song could be about any number of people. In a recent interview a year later, for GQ magazine, Taylor Swift has now given statement – “The fact that I’ve never confirmed who those songs are about makes me feel like there is still one card I’m holding”, as if to in fact confirm the song it about some specific people, just not only one person in particular.
“You’re in a Rolling Stone interview, and the writer says, ‘Who is that song about?”, Taylor Swift explained recently to GQ magazine, “That sounds like a really intense moment from your life.’ And you sit there, and you know you’re on good terms with your ex-boyfriend, and you don’t want him or his family to think you’re firing shots at him. So you say, ‘That was about losing a friend.’ And that’s basically all you say.” So once again that song is about only one person? Taylor Swift has now become flippy flop about the song’s true meaning to. Kinda sounds like Taylor sniffed some cocaine before the interview. Flopping back to her original statement once again, Taylor added – “I never said anything that would point a finger in the specific direction of one specific person, and I can sleep at night knowing that. I knew the song would be assigned to a person, and the easiest mark was someone who I didn’t want to be labeled with this song. I don’t necessarily care who people think it’s about. I just needed to divert them away from the easiest target. Listen to the song. It doesn’t point to any one person or any one situation.”
Taylor Swift really needs to make up her mind – although once again she could of avoided that whole fiasco by merely stating it the way it was aforementioned at the beginning of this article. It kind seems like Taylor Swift needs to stop being so contingent on making sure that none of her 1989 Tour concert performances are allowed on YouTube, and instead get better PR people. That’s only really one way to look at it from a public relations kind of stand point however – as they say, there really is no bad publicity, although it was good for Taylor Swift to at least steer people away from the song being specifically about Katy Perry, because Katy Perry is one of the most friended celebs on social media (something to consider).
