It is a daily struggle for me to not buy more cats.



Happiness is not a constant. It’s something that we only experience glimpses of every once in a while - but it’s worth it.” - Taylor Swift.  (insp)



Putting out my first single was just such a cool experience because I didn’t know what was going to happen. I remember putting the physical CD singles into envelopes to mail out to radio, with my mom." - Taylor Swift



A lot of people who I think will relate to this song are…



“Who cares if it’s pop, country or polka music? The song is a smash. Taylor Swift is a superstar, a superstar who has done more for the expansion of the country music audience than anyone else before her or since.” — Shania Twain’s manager (via captivatedtaylor)



“I want this song to go out in the world and not be about my critics, I want it to be about the girl who’s criticizing someone in eleventh grade because she thinks that her hair looks stupid. And that girl then goes and like cries in the bathroom because of it. These are things that we go through in every phase of our lives, starting a new job and there’s just someone who has it out for you. And I hope that maybe, you know, I had a lot of days when I would come home from school, and get in the car and my mom would try so hard to console me ‘cause someone had made fun of me or something had said something about me, or not invited me to something I was dying to go to. And she would always try to find songs that bring me out of that, and music always helped distract me from that, so I think my greatest hope is that this started out being about my life and I just want it to go out into cars, and speakers, and your phones, and become about their lives.” — Taylor on what she wants the message of ‘Shake It Off’ to be.

hey, hey, hey, just think while you've been getting down and out about the liars and the dirty dirty cheats in the world you could have been getting down to this sick beat
