To me this was the most powerful part of the entire song/video and just summed up what she was trying to capture in Shake It Off. This is sososo important because this isnt only aimed at her haters, but for her fans and everyone listening, to celebrate individuality and dismiss the haters like Taylor. Like the emotion in her face is so surreal & captures the message shes trying to convey basically.
“Writing ‘Red’, I was 21 and 22 and back then I think my priorities were different. My priorities were, I was very enamored by romance and the idea of that. At 24, at this point, I’m just really like, I just want to be with my friends, and I wanna make music, and I wanna play shows, and I wanna travel the world, and I want to define my life on my own terms. That’s my list of priorities now which is different than it was a couple years ago.”
