Country singer Taylor Swift has revealed what inspired her to write the double Grammy winning track Mean. Taylor claims that there was a critic who was constantly giving her bad reviews and clearly had a grudge against, becoming more mean, which inspired her to put pen to paper and come up with the track Mean, about the nasty critic.
Swift explained, "I wrote the song about a critic who kept giving me really bad reviews. Nothing ruins your day more than getting a bad review, and then there is the scathing review which is past constructive criticism and more into 'I hate you' territory which is mean.”
She added, "It really got me down because I do get my feelings hurt. You don't ever get thick skin for that sort of thing, or I don't at least, so it really got me down for a long time. The only way I could get myself to feel semi-better about it was to sing this melody in my head… and then it won two Grammys
and now I feel better!" Taylor Swift
recently admitted that she is in search of a new boyfriend
and has taken the active approach of searching for one, in the supermarket.
