Nothing seems to come close to a Swifty scorned!
We all saw Taylor Swift’s stank eye last night, when Adele won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song, instead of her!
Now it seems like maybe songs NOT about her ex-lovers don’t exactly put the odds ever in Swifty’s favor!
On the red carpet last night, Ryan Seacrest interviewed Taylor about the whole songwriting process she went through for The Hunger Games track, which she was nominated for!
Of the song, Safe And Sound, Swift said:
“It was interesting, because Lionsgate came to us and said, ‘We want you to write from Katniss’ point of view, we want you to completely understand her and come from where she’s coming from.’”
Wait… writing from a point of view other than her own?? That must’ve come as a challenge for the supposed serial dater and songwriter!
However, it sounds like Taylor didn’t have much trouble at all with it!
The songstress explained:
“My cowriters, The Civil Wars and T Bone Burnett, were amazing. We had this idea that we wanted the song to be about the empathy that goes into this film and the undertones of sympathy and human compassion that go along with such an incredible film with all this action and fighting in it. We wanted to highlight the fact that there’s a lot of heart beneath that.”
Well, at least there was SOME sort of lovey undertones!
Maybe Swift would have better luck with a song based on her own heartbroken experiences next time around — perhaps one of those inspired by Harry Styles???
