So here is basically what went down… On Wednesday, I got an email from Taylor Nation and on Thursday, they called me and it was a done deal. I live in Florida so my mom and I decided to drive to Nashville on Saturday. No one knew we were going there. Sunday comes around and it was the SLOWEST PASSING DAY IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. I just wanted it to be time to go. We got to the check in location and it was running a bit late so we didn’t get on the buses for an hour. I made so many amazing friends while waiting though and I’m so glad we got to share last night. There were 89 of us at the check in so we weren’t really sure how we were all going to fit into her apartment… Then her bodyguard told us that we were using someone’s home because they trust us and my mind immediately went to Taylor’s parents’ home. We pulled up to the house and it was crazy. All of us were in shock and didn’t know how to process anything. We went to the pool area and there was all kinds of different food. THE CHICKEN NUGGETS GAVE ME LIFE. We finished eating and then we waited to go into the house. We entered through this room that had a really old family photo and there was that photo of all of the Red Tour family including the crew. My friends and I managed to get seats in the front of the room. It was SO packed cause they had to fit 89 people into a living room, but we made it work. When Taylor came in everyone was screaming and my friends and I screamed “BECKY” and Taylor was like “Becky’s dead!! Let’s take a moment of silence.” She then said, “Hi Amanda!” so Amanda lost it. Taylor kept recognizing people in the crowd it was crazy. Taylor explained how she had been scouring social media for months and picking all of us to be there. There were lots of little conversations here and there, which were adorable. Taylor showed us her pegacorn phone case and also struggled with some technical difficulties. Taylor told us little stories of what inspired each song, which I am not allowed to talk about so please do not ask. The album is seriously AMAZING. It’s unlike anything she has ever done. It’s not bubblegum pop either. It’s really well produced and it has that Taylor feel to it. The lyrics are amazing in each song, while still being really catchy. Shake It Off is an amazing song and I love it, but the rest of the album is even better. Everyone is so unprepared. Taylor also played us one of the voice memos that will be on the Target deluxe edition and it’s so cool to kind of get a look into her mind. She told us to count how many times she said “whatever” and “like” in the voice memo and it was so funny. She then played us how the song ended up after being mixed and all of that and it’s definitely one of my favorites. I can’t even remember at what point, but we took an intermission where Taylor went to go get us snacks and she brought out Olivia. I got to hold Olivia and nearly died at how soft she is. When I saw Taylor had like four platters of different things she baked for us, I headed over there. She was talking to people and one guy took one of her chai cookies (the ones she posted on Instagram) and was like “THIS IS LIKE CHRISTMAS IN MY MOUTH” and she was like “THAT’S WHAT I WAS GOING FOR” and got really excited about it. I took a cookie and thanked her and headed over to talk to Liz and Teresa and we were all dying. Taylor made her way back to her chair and finished playing the rest of the album. Taylor was dancing and mouthing the words to every single song. She’s so proud of the album and it’s very clear why. After she finished playing the album we had a huge dance party to Shake It Off. It was crazy. The floor was shaking and the chandeliers were shaking too. My mom said her parents were looking at all of the lamps and lights like they were so afraid. After we had the dance party we all went back out to the pool area and were told to get into our group numbers. My friends and I got to talk to Scott while waiting to go back in to meet Taylor. Taylor had these really cool huge door mats that said “T.S. 1989” and we told him that they should sell them on the online store. He said he would tell them so if they appear on the store, then you’re welcome. Scott was so nice and we talked for a solid 10 minutes. Then it was time for the group before mine to go in and I was getting really nervous. When I finally got inside and I was the next person to meet Taylor I was like this isn’t real. I went up to her and hugged her and she was like “HEY MAN” I introduced myself and we just talked. She said that she loved my dress and wanted to say something during the listening session, but didn’t want to get off track. At one point she interrupted me and said, “I love your dimples and how they’re different from each other. I’ve never seen anything like that!! Have you ever noticed before?” It was so cute she was like obsessed with them. We talked for a bit more and I heard a woman say that we should take the picture so I asked Taylor if we could do the arm thing she does with a lot of her friends and she literally had no idea what I was talking about. So I showed her what I meant and she was like “That’s such a good idea!!” So we posed and she told me the photo would take 30 minutes to develop and we said bye. I walked away, but my mom told me she wanted me in her photo so I came back and I told Taylor that I loved how she was playing Ed and told her about our trip to Nashville two weeks ago and she was like “Isn’t he amazing?!” I then said, “Can I hold the Grammy?” And she was like “YES YOU SHOULD” and passed it to me. It was her Grammy for White Horse. I told her that it was the best night of my life and she yelled “YES” and did this cute thing. We got merch bags and soon enough we were back on the buses. It was the most magical night ever and I can’t thank Taylor and her team enough. I’m seriously so stoked for 1989. I’m so proud of you and I love you taylorswift.

"If you know who you are then no one can hurt you with whatever mean things they say."

"I think when it comes to females in the media you’ll see something that kind of upsets me which is that females are pinned up against each other more so than men. You know, for example like you never see online “vote for who has the better butt - this actor or this actor.” It’s always like this female singer and this female singer. And you get to vote. I mean, it’s daily I see these things and these polls like “let us know who’s sexier, who’s the hotter momma” and I just don’t see it like “who’s the hotter dad” you know? I think that one thing that I do believe as a feminist is that in order for us to have gender equality we have to stop making it a girl fight and we have to stop being so interested in seeing girls trying to tear each other down, it has to be more about cheering each other on as women. That’s just kind of how I feel about it."
--Taylor Swift (Tout le monde en parle)

"The only thing that I saw was incredible acclaim and praise and that’s just me going off of what I’m plugged into which is my fan base of real girls out in the world living their lives and when they saw their favorite actress get up in front of the UN and say what she said, I wish when I was younger, I wish when I was 12 years old I’d been able to watch a video of my favorite actress explaining in such an intellectual, beautiful, poignant way the definition of feminism because I would’ve understood it and then earlier on in my life I would’ve proudly claimed that I was a feminist because I would’ve understood what the word means. So many girls out there say “I’m not a feminist” cause they think it means something angry or disgruntled or complaining. They picture like rioting and picketing, it is not that at all, it just simply means that you believe that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities and to say that you’re not a feminist means that you think men should have more rights and opportunities than women. I just think a lot of girls don’t know the definition and the fact that Emma got up and explained it is I think an incredible thing and I’m happy to live in a world where that happened."
--Taylor Swift on Emma getting hate for her speech on Tout Le Monde En Parle (via xloveswift)

"Honestly, I think that I cheer on anybody who is living their life on their own terms and wearing what they want to wear and representing what they want to represent. I think that no other female artist should be able to tell me to wear less clothes and I’m not gonna tell any other female artist to wear more clothes. You know what I’m saying? As long as it’s their idea, and they’re expressing their sexuality or they’re expressing their strength or it makes them feel like a woman to perform a certain way or dress a certain way. I just think that as long as it’s coming from them and they’re living their life on their own terms, I cheer them on. Honestly."
--Taylor Swift on not “acting up” like Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears on Tout Le Monde En Parle (via immabefearless)

"Well I’ve just decided to go for it because that was the gut feeling I got, that was what my intuition was telling me. As a songwriter, I try to stay really open to intuition and inspiration and impulses. I knew I had to make this album the way it has turned out. I knew I wanted it to be different than every album that I’ve done before and out of respect for the country music community who I love and adore, I felt it was best to just be honest with them about what the album was and just be very very truthful about the fact that it is a pop album."
--Taylor Swift on 1989 being her first pop album on Tout Le Monde En Parle (via immabefearless)

"We’re a good team because we kind of push each other just to get there, just to get to the door! It’s important to have a good friend that challenges you—even if it’s simply to get to the gym."
--Karlie Kloss on working out with Taylor (x)
