Back in September, Taylor Swift stopped by the Grammy museum to discuss her 1989 songwriting process as well as deliver an intimate performance of a few of the songs. Earlier this week saw the public release of a breathtaking “Wildest Dreams” from that day, and now comes a “Blank Space” performance the likes of which fans haven’t heard before.
Swift kicked things off by recounting how the tune came about, as she’s done before, explaining that for a few years there she felt like the media fascination with her dating life was out of control, painting her as “the psycho serial dating girl.” “My first reaction was like, ‘This is a bummer. This isn’t fun for me,'” Swift shared. “But then my second reaction ended up being like, ‘Hey, That’s a really interesting character they’re writing about. She jet sets around the world collecting men…then she traps them and locks them in her mansion, and then she’s crying in her marble bathtub surrounded by pearls. So I was like, ‘I can use this.'”
