When the little boy gave Taylor flowers | Brisbane 131207
I’m gonna go back down. You didn’t see this dress, Ok? Also you didn’t see it all you don’t know what is gonna happen next. We’re gonna roll the video and I come back out to scene for you and we’re gonna pretend like this never happened. Love you Brisbane. ..
❝So. This is gonna be fixed I promise you. But we got some stuff that broke because we have a lot of stuff we brought with us as you can see. You know, this is what I wear for the next song, so will you just pretend you didn’t see it yet for the sake of mystery and intrigue? It’s going to be broken for like maybe about a minute and a half more and then there going to fix it I promise, and if they don’t fix it I’ll just grab my guitar and just do the whole show acoustic. But I just wanted to let you know I didn’t take a break to go like golfing or something, cause that’s something that people do… on stage? Why did I say that? So… OH OH this will work okay, AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE! [Crowd Oi Oi Oi!] See! Oh! We got some really good news today actually that I was going to talk to you about eventually but I could probably talk to you about now. Okay, so I’m really excited about it, and essentially I feel like all the hard work and effort and amazingness that you guys have put into this last year… Did anyone here buy my album Red? Okay so you did. So this is for you. This message, this antidote. You guys and all your hard work and your dedication all added up and every thing that happened in the last year added up and we got the news today that Red got nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammys, guys! To say that I’m excited about it would be such an understatement. To say that I ran around screaming for a few hours about it would be an understatement. I’m so happy. This is the best birthday week possible. That’s right.. I’m turning 24….On the 13th of December which is coming up and for my present I would like for all 40,000 of you to give me the gift of not being mad at me that something on our stage broke for four minutes. Is that okay, will you do that? Oh good I love it! Okay so now it’s fixed. And I’m going to go back down, pretend you didn’t see this dress, okay awesome you didn’t see it at all, you don’t know what’s going to happen next, were going to roll the video and I’m going to come back out and sing for you and were going to pretend like this never happened. Love you Brisbane.❞

People make so much fun of me for that, and I just, I don’t know. It’s like, if you win an award, isn’t that crazy? … How do you sit there and be like ‘Oh, another Grammy. I guess I’m gonna get that now’?
The song ‘22’ is kind of an idea I got while I was on a plane and I ran into the studio with Max Martin and Shellback and I was like ”You guys, listen to this!”, and they loved it too, so we worked on it and I wanted to write a song about what my summer had been like with my friends, with that kind of attitude of like ”We are in our 20’s, and we don’t know anything, and it’s awesome!”, you know, and it’s kind of fun to embrace that and I gotta say, that’s probably one of the biggest choruses on the record.
