With every Taylor’s Model re-release, Taylor Swift revisits the vault of songs that had been written for, however didn’t make, the primary model of her information. With Converse Now‘s re-release arriving in July, these emotions (and unreleased songs) would possibly discover new life 13 years later.
On Tuesday, Taylor Lautner — one in every of Swift’s ex-boyfriends from the Converse Now period in 2009 — was requested about how he feels relating to Swift revisiting her music from that point.
“I feel it’s an important album,” he advised At this time.com in regards to the document. With regard to the potential of being the topic of unheard music, he stated, “Yeah, I really feel protected.”
For the document, “Again to December,” which Lautner confirmed was about their breakup years after Swift dropped it, is a reasonably candy breakup music.
The gag, although? Lautner joked that he’s “praying for John” forward of the album’s re-release.
John, after all, refers to John Mayer, the different man Swift dated in 2009. Mayer is the topic of “Expensive John,” a way more scathing breakup monitor on the document. “Expensive John, I see all of it, now it was fallacious/Don’t you suppose 19 is simply too younger to be performed by your darkish twisted video games, once I liked you so?” Swift sings on the monitor, which references their broad age hole. Ouch.
Mayer has been fairly open about his emotions on the music, telling Rolling Stone again in 2012 that he felt “actually humiliated” by the discharge of the monitor, and name-dropping him was a “actually awful factor to do.”
“It made me really feel horrible,” Mayer stated then. “As a result of I didn’t deserve it. I’m fairly good at taking accountability now, and I by no means did something to deserve that.”
Who is aware of? Maybe Swift was holding onto some much more scathing lyrics in regards to the Sob Rock crooner.
The At this time.com interview with Lautner comes as he and his spouse, Taylor Dome, promote their podcast The Squeeze. Dome, for her half, stated earlier this yr that Converse Now was “probably the greatest albums of all time, the lyrics are insane.”
Lautner and Swift have been pleasant since their cut up. Lautner not too long ago spoke about Swift throughout an episode of his and his spouse’s podcast, addressing notorious VMAs second when Kanye West interrupted Swift’s speech, after Lautner handed her an award.
“I gave her the award. I took 5 steps again and was standing 5 ft behind her. In the midst of her giving her thanks speech, Kanye jumps up onto the stage,” he stated. “I might barely hear it. I can’t see them. I’m simply assuming this entire factor was a practiced and rehearsed skit as a result of why else would Kanye West be leaping on the stage interrupting Taylor Swift? It simply didn’t make sense.”
“In case you look again at it, I’m really caught laughing and, like, laughing at it. I’m like, ‘I can’t hear them, however that is most likely actually humorous proper now,’” Lautner added. “He jumped off. She completed. The second she turned again round and I noticed her face for the primary time, I used to be like, ‘Oh. No. …That wasn’t good.’”
Swift formally introduced Converse Now (Taylor’s Model) throughout her slate of exhibits in Nashville earlier this yr.
“I feel moderately than me talking about it,” she teased as followers started to scream, “I assumed I might simply present you. So, in the event you would direct your consideration to the again, huge display that now we have.” Behind her, the display learn: “Converse Now. Taylor’s Model. Out there July 7.” Followers instantly flooded social media to submit screenshots and reside footage of the large reveal.
Quickly after, Swift tweeted, “I first made Converse Now, utterly self-written, between the ages of 18 and 20. The songs that got here from this time in my life had been marked by their brutal honesty, unfiltered diaristic confessions and wild wistfulness.”
She added: “I like this album as a result of it tells a story of rising up, flailing, flying and crashing… and residing to talk about it. With six additional songs I’ve sprung unfastened from the vault, I completely can not wait to have a good time Converse Now (Taylor’s Model) with you on July seventh.”
