Taylor Swift may have predicted the future for her hit song “Shake It Off.” It sounds like this former country queen is also a fortuneteller. Taylor spoke with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at this past weekend’s Grammys. The host surprised her with a rare interview from 2008.
Swift seemed anxious about what she was going to witness in the clip, according to MTV News. She admitted to Seacrest that she was a “bit mouthy” when she was only 18. Swift was talking about how she deals with breakups in old interview.
In the flashback clip, Ryan told Taylor, “When you meet someone that you connect with and maybe you do learn from that and grow from that and you take something away from that, that’s what you’re saying …”
Taylor responded, “You learn. I’m just trying to shake it off.” The singer was rocking her trademark blonde curls in the video.
Swift was mind blown on the Grammys red carpet. She said that the 2008 interview wasn’t exactly the inspiration for her future hit “Shake It Off.” Still, Swift was clearly shocked by the old Seacrest interview.
Taylor responded, “Wow, that’s weird. That’s wild, wow. That’s crazy. I guess I used to just say that a lot.”
You could say that Seacrest made Swift speechless on the red carpet. “Shake It Off” was the first single off her 1989 album. It’s been hovering on the Hot 100 Billboard charts, along with Swift’s second single “Blank Space.”
Taste of Country reported that Taylor’s “Shake It Off” interview wasn’t the only strange thing to happen at the 2015 Grammy Awards. Taylor later reunited and made up with Kanye West. Taylor is also reportedly working on a song with the controversial rapper.
West spoke to Seacrest after speaking with Swift. He said, “Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fanbase, I’m down to get in the studio and work. I don’t discriminate.”
Taylor is also obviously trying to shake it off, when it comes to the Kanye West feud. Indie-pop singer Charli XCX recently covered “Shake It Off” at the BBC Studio. She gave it a slightly heavier punk sound, according to a recent report on The Inquisitr.
“… she gave Taylor Swift’s Grammy-nominated ‘Shake It Off’ a punk-rock makeover that would have sounded right at home on her new album, Sucker, thanks to its rolling bass line and Ramones-esque shouts.”
Which “Shake It Off” version do you prefer: Charli XCX’s punk cover or Taylor Swift’s original pop hit?
