She's thinking about the lyrics, and she says, "That sounds a lot like . YouTube . been so supportive and had tried and tried to meet me, had been to And in every single one of my houses in the U.S. and my hotel room in. Of all of Taylor Swift's Reputation tracks, "I Did Something Bad" Here, the lyrics broken down with the possible Harris references. Now all he thinks about is me after her breakup with Harris (the two apparently met in May and hit it off Left him alone and you booked in a hotel"; and a punny, reference.
The song stayed atop the charts for three consecutive weeks, tying with American rapper Cardi B 's " Bodak Yellow " as the longest running female at the number one spot on the charts in The track also became the country's first number-one song with a female artist since Halsey was featured on " Closer " by The Chainsmokers and the first song with a female lead artist since Sia 's " Cheap Thrills " with Sean Paul both in It additionally was the first solo song by a female to top the US charts since Adele's "Hello".

It also became the first time a female had two songs within the top five of the Hot since when Swift's previous tracks " Blank Space " and " Shake It Off " respectively were at numbers four and five on the chart. In doing so, it surpassed the number three peaks of her singles " Love Story " in and " Shake It Off " in It descended to the runner-up position the following week, as the latter song reclaimed the top spot for an 11th week.
Music video[ edit ] Production and release[ edit ] Preparation for the music video began in Januarywhile the shooting took place in May. It was also reported that the diamonds used in a scene were authentic. Swift has said that part of the premise of the video is rooted in the idea that, "If everything you write about me was true, this is how ridiculous it would look. The video begins with a zombie Swift crawling out of a grave, where the headstone reads "Here Lies Taylor Swift's reputation", and digging another grave for her Met Gala self.
The next scene shows Swift in a bathtub filled with diamonds.Adele - Hello
She is then seen seated on a throne while snakes surround her and serve tea. Swift later crashes her golden Bugatti Veyron on a post and sings the song's chorus holding a Grammy as the paparazzi take photos. She is also seen swinging inside a cage, robbing a streaming company in a cat mask, and leading a motorcycle gang. Afterwards, she gathers a group of women at "Squad U" and dances with a group of men in another room.
At the video's climax, Swift is seen standing in a T-shaped throne while clones of herself from her past music videosstruggle and fight against each other trying to reach her. On this album, I'm writing about more complex relationships, where the blame is kind of split I'm writing about looking back on a relationship and feeling a sense of pride even though it didn't work out, reminiscing on something that ended but you still feel good about it, falling in love with a city, falling in love with a feeling rather than a person.
And I think there's actually sort of a realism to my new approach to relationships, which is a little more fatalistic than anything I used to think about them. I used to think that, you know, you find "the one. You have a few experiences with love and relationships, and you learn that that's not the case at all. Lots of things are gray areas and complicated situations, and even if you find the right situation relationship-wise, it's always going to be a daily struggle to make it work.
So those are different themes that I don't think people have really seen in my lyrics before. Is the song "Wildest Dreams" maybe an example of that? That's actually a really good example of the way I go into relationships now.
Look What You Made Me Do
If I meet someone who I feel I have a connection with, the first thought I have is: I hope you remember me well. It's that realization that it's the anomaly if something works out; it's not a given. Are there new musical influences here? Some music reviewers have been mentioning the influence of Lorde or Lana Del Rey or maybe Robyn in some of your songs. What do you hear? Those were the two artists that I was listening to a lot when I was making this record.
What Annie does is so interesting to me, and it's not something you could ever try to duplicate. But the way she conveys a thought, there's something really intense about it. And I think that's something I'll always aspire to. And what about Peter Gabriel? With Peter, that's an artist who has such incredible taste and such an incredible finger on the pulse of what would excite people, musically. What he was doing in the '80s was so ahead of its time, because he was playing with a lot of synth-pop sounds, but kind of creating sort of an atmosphere behind what he was singing, rather than a produced track.
It was just kind of astonishing how he was able to do that. And then you see him in his later work, when he did that album full of modern-day covers.
I mean, I just think that he's remarkable at giving people what they want, but they didn't think they wanted. I want to ask you about the song "Out Of The Woods. That line is in there because it's not only the actual, literal narration of what happened in a particular relationship I was in, it's also a metaphor.
But also, the relationship ended sooner than it should've because there was a lot of fear involved. And that song touches on a huge sense of anxiety that was, kind of, coursing through that particular relationship, because we really felt the heat of every single person in the media thinking they could draw up the narrative of what we were going through and debate and speculate.
I don't think it's ever going to be easy for me to find love and block out all those screaming voices. YouTube Not to ignore the broader metaphor here, but I am curious about the actual event. I'll bet you are. That's kind of between us, between the two people who it happened to.
I think I put it in the song knowing it was an evocative lyric. And it was almost like this very strange, subtle clue to the media that they don't know everything that happened in that relationship, and they don't know everything that happens in my life, and I can have something really major and traumatic happen to me and they don't know about it.
How rare are those moments?
Look What You Made Me Do - Wikipedia
When you feel like you can do something on your own that nobody will know about if you don't want them to. It's strange because my life now is really abnormal.
I get used to the fact that when I go out, there's gonna be a line of people wanting pictures on their phone, and there's gonna be crowds everywhere, even if there weren't crowds when I walked into a store.
I realize the only privacy I'm really entitled to is when I'm in my own apartment or my own home, 'cause everything else is kind of — I'm looked at as sort of public property. And there's nothing I can do about that perception except control my mental perspective on it, which is, I need to treat people well.
I need to be grateful. I need to take pictures with people when they ask for one. So if I'm not in the mood to do that, I don't leave my house.
You also do, in a certain way, make yourself pretty accessible through social media, right? You've been posting Polaroids of your fans holding your new album on your Twitter feed. And you chose fans to invite over to your various homes to have listening parties for the new album — made them cookies, I think?
You do have this funny dynamic of bringing people in a very managed way, in a very calculated way, and then having to figure out where the boundary is. I like for them to be in situations where they feel they can be themselves.

Places they can't be themselves are when they're being pushed up against a barricade and there are thousands of them outside of a talk show, and they're trying to get a picture but they're screaming and everybody's freaking out.
They can't necessarily be themselves when they're in these chaotic situations where fans usually find themselves.
I've been on the internet for hours every single night figuring out what these people want from me. I did this thing called the Secret Sessions a few months ago, way before the album came out. I had spent months picking fans on Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter — people who had been so supportive and had tried and tried to meet me, had been to five shows or however many events but had never met me before.
And so I picked these people. And in every single one of my houses in the U. And I'd say, you know, you can share your experience, but please keep the secrets about this album a secret. Let's not talk about lyrics before the album comes out.
'Anything That Connects': A Conversation With Taylor Swift
Let's not talk about song titles. And if you see anybody leaking music, please let us know. We spent four hours together each night, taking Polaroids and having a great time and giving them a chance to tell me their stories that they wanted to tell in their own time. Not having to feel panic. And then they went back out into the world, and they kept those promises. They didn't talk about lyrics. They didn't spoil the secret for other fans.
