In my mind, I wanted to tie this to this metaphor that I’ve been thinking about a lot because all I think about are metaphors and cats. My idea was that life itself, and who people actually are, can be greatly reflected in how they dance. I really think that. And I don’t mean how good you are, I mean your willingness to dance. You can kind of tell, if you go to a house party and you see that there’s like this group of people over here that are too cool for school and they’re over here and there just like ‘oh my God. Those people are dancing. That is so weird that they’re like dancing.’ You know, those people, I don’t feel like, are having as good of a time as the people they’re making fun of. The people who don’t care how they look dancing, cause they like dancing. I’m not projecting or anything. But basically, I love the idea that you can tell who someone is by how they dance. And so we started talking about ideas and we basically decided that we would get this huge group of incredible professional dancers, of all different types of dance, and throw me into the middle of them and see what happens.

Few musical artists would dare to reinvent their sound so brazenly, especially with expectations so high. But with “Shake It Off,” Swift proves why she belongs among pop’s queen bees: As you may have guessed, the song sounds like a surefire hit; it also previews an album executive-produced by Swift and Martin. Swift will probably catch some flak for moving away from her bedrock sound, but she has never colored inside the lines. And, as “Shake It Off” shows, Swift can handle the criticism.

It was so much fun. I woke up every day of that shoot and couldn’t wait to get to set. We had twerking, which was so funny. Those girls were trying to teach me how, and it’s just never gonna happen. I tried really hard. They were teaching me what they do, and there’s like a science to it – they’re like digging their heels into the floor without you seeing their legs move, but their butts’ moving. It’s mind-blowing to me. They were explaining it all to me, and it’s so above my comprehension of how to understand your body.

I’ve had every part of my life dissected — my choices, my actions, my words, my body, my style, my music. When you live your life under that kind of scrutiny, you can either let it break you, or you can get really good at dodging punches. And when one lands, you know how to deal with it. And I guess the way that I deal with it is to shake it off.
