Taylor Swift non è esattamente il libro più aperto quando si tratta della sua vita personale e di appuntamenti, e questo si riflette sicuramente anche nella sua musica. Sebbene sia generalmente aperta riguardo al suo processo creativo e all’ispirazione dietro molti dei suoi successi, la geniale cantautrice mantiene un’aria di mistero sulla sua musica e si diverte a lasciare la maggior parte delle sue canzoni aperte all’interpretazione. E lo stesso vale per il suo nuovo album, “Midnights”, uscito finalmente il 21 ottobre dopo mesi di attesa (e notti insonni). Parlando del record su Twitter, Swift ha descritto “Midnights” come le “storie di 13 notti insonni sparse per tutta la mia vita”. “Questa è una raccolta di musica scritta nel cuore della notte, un viaggio attraverso terrori e sogni d’oro”, ha scritto.

Taylor Swift sings about her lonely childhood

A lyric from Taylor Swift's "Mastermind" is causing quite a stir on social media for including a surprisingly heartbreaking confession from Swift about her childhood and how it has affected her relationship to fame and love.

While clearly "Mastermind" is a song about how strategically Swift made her lover fall for her ("What if I told you none of it was accidental?"), the song's bridge tells a different story — one that certainly took some Swifties by surprise for it's gut-punch level of reflection. It speaks about Swift's supposedly lonely childhood, about how, per Genius, "no one played with me as a little kid." She goes on to sing: "So I've been scheming like a criminal ever since / To make them love me and make it seem effortless / This is the first time I've felt the need to confess." It's safe to assume "them" references her romantic partners, or on an even larger scale, her fans.

Over on Twitter, several fans of Swift shared their reaction to Swift's heartbreaking confession in "Mastermind," with most saying they felt seen and heard by its lyrics. "'THE BULLIED LITTLE KID IN ME FELT HEARD FOR THE FIRST TIME," wrote one fan. Another said, "the bridge tears me up bc was bullied so much as a kid and this messed me up all over again." As one Swiftie pointed out: "'no one wanted to play with me as a little kid' she really wanted us screaming, crying, throwing up at midnight." BRB, crying!
