Following release of her lovely surprise album Evermore, Taylor Swift has also released a self-directed video for the album’s lead single “willow.”
You may recognize her opening outfit from the end of “Cardigan“
Via Popsugar, which lists 8 Easter eggs in the video, Taylor shared her thoughts behind the scene in the box:
During her YouTube chat, Swift revealed that one scene in particular represents how she feels about fame. The scene appears to be when Swift is playing inside a box at a circus but isn’t able to get out when she sees her lover. Seeing that her outfit is giving us major “Love Story” vibes, it’s possible she’s referencing how she was put “inside a box” early in her career and put on display for all to see, but once she finally fell in love, she wanted to get out of the box and the spotlight to live a more private life.
