While we love creating our own theories about Taylor’s songs, we love to hear what Taylor has to say! If you were curious about the song ‘betty‘, read below and listen to the audio clip to hear Taylor explain the song!
Taylor Swift just released her new song, “betty,” to country radio. The tune, featured on her new folklore album, goes for adds on Monday, August 17th.
“So, the song ‘betty’ is about a 17-year-old named James learning to apologize, because James has lost the love of his life basically and doesn’t understand how to get it back. I think we all have these situations in our lives where we learn to really, really give a heartfelt apology for the first time. Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody really messes up sometimes, and this is a song that I wrote from the perspective of a 17-year-old boy. And I always loved that in music you can kind of slip into different identities and you can sing from other people’s perspectives. So, that’s what I did with this one. I named all the characters in this story after my friends’ kids, and I hope you like it.”
