Taylor Swift Discusses Ex-Boyfriends in Interview With Ryan Adams (VIDEO)
Taylor Swift doesn’t usually discuss ex-BFs — she sings about them, duh — but in a recent interview she revealed exactly how one inspired her song “All You Had to Do Was Stay.”
The 25-year-old pop star was interviewed by Ryan Adams, who covered her entire 1989 album, and we can’t help but wonder if she’s dishing about One Direction’s Harry Styles.
Ryan was interviewing T-Swift for GQ and asked her if she’d ever come up with a song — or a lyric — in her dreams.
“In the song ‘All You Had to Do Was Stay’ there’s this really high-pitched ‘stay,’” Taylor told the 40-year-old singer.
“I had a dream that my ex showed up at my door, knocked on the door, and I opened it up and I was about ready to launch into, like, the perfect thing to say and, instead, all that would come out of my mouth was that high-pitch chorus of people singing ‘stay!’”
That’s totally happened to us before, girlfriend.
The reason we think Taylor’s talking about Harry is the fact that he’s the inspiration for a few other songs — “Style” and “Out of the Woods” of course — it’s not completely a stretch for him to have inspired this ditty.
Ryan admits he’s a little surprised she brought up that exact musical choice because it’s one he considers “super weird” and one he “didn’t even attempt.”
As for what the “Wildest Dreams” singer thinks about Ryan’s 1989 cover album, she’s all for it!
“You know when actors say a line, they say a sentence, but they say it with different emphasis on different words and they completely change it?” she asks. “That’s what you did with my album.”
