Taylor Swift not only premiered the music video of “The Story of Us” on MTV last night, but she also explained the inspiration behind it!
“Anytime I’m onstage or watching the music video, the first thing that comes into my mind is the person I wrote the song about,” Taylor told MTV News during “MTV First: Taylor Swift.” “It’s like, the first thing that you think of is the moment that inspired the song, which is that excruciating, awful moment when you run into an ex for the first time.”
And Taylor was very involved in deciding how the music video for “The Story of Us” would be filmed.
“Noble Jones, the director, had sent in this treatment. He had it set in a library, and I called him and I asked him if he’d be willing to change it to an Ivy League feel,” she explained.
But that’s not the only change you’ll find in this new video.
“Well, I think the biggest difference between the new video and all the other ones is that I love to make a happy ending happen, and with this video, it doesn’t happen.”
