The video is a period piece that drew influences from the Medieval, Renaissance, and British Regency (1813) eras.
It follows Swift and model Justin Gaston as they meet in a university campus and imagine themselves in a prior era.
In any case, this week Swift released the sternly-worded “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” a charming little ditty about an on-again/off-again relationship that is ultimately off-again-forever. Like, “ever ever” = “Taylor Taylor.” Not buying it? 10-1 John Mayer: Swift already wrote one song about her dalliance with the fratboy-folk icon.
The Internet is already buzzing with rumors about the identity of the subject of “Never Ever.” We analyzed the most likely candidates, and using science, we came up with the odds that the song was actually about them. “We break up, you call me, I love you,” sings Swift. But hey, if James Joyce could write an entire book about a single day in the life of an Irish dude in the early 20th century, surely Swift can write more than one song about the world’s least popular Johnny Depp impersonator.
In 2006, she released her debut single "Tim Mc Graw", then her self-titled debut album, which was subsequently certified multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Yesterday was the unofficial end of summer—and, reportedly, the official end of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's relationship. Here, the full roller coaster, from start to end: May 3, 2016: TAYLOR SWIFT & TOM HIDDLESTON GETTING DOWN #MET #DANCE #FUNFUN #PRINCE #NYC #tomhiddleston A post shared by " style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px;" target="_blank" May 16, 2016: MTV UK interviews Hiddleston about his dance with Swift. Um, I've learned that there are many sides to a story, and that sometimes there are a lot of stories out there which are false, and the hardest thing is to try to not let those falsehoods affect your own life.
The song was written about a love interest of Swift's who was not popular among Swift's family and friends.
Because of the scenario, Swift related to the plot of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1597) and used it as a source of inspiration to compose the song.
Swift is a 8-time Grammy winner with a total of 23 nominations (Feb 2016).
The song is one of the best-selling singles worldwide, with worldwide sales of more than 6.5 millions of units (according to the IFPI).
The song's accompanying music video was directed by Trey Fanjoy, who directed the majority of Swift's prior videos.
She also co-produced the track with Nathan Chapman.
It was released on September 12, 2008 by Big Machine Records, as the lead single from Swift's second studio album Fearless (2008).
