During her YouTube live stream event held to celebrate the release of Lover, Taylor Swift treated fans to a bit more insight as to where the idea for the music video came from.
It turns out the entire concept was inspired by her sweeping 1989 ballad, “You Are In Love.”
“This is a song that I wrote about two of my best friends who were in love, and I saw their relationship and thought like, ‘Wow, that’s beautiful. What you guys have is beautiful.’” recalled Swift. “There’s a line that I Was really proud of in the song that says, ‘And so it goes, you two are dancing in a snow globe round and round,’ and that line inspired the entire music video concept.”
“It’s a concept that I’m so proud of,” continued the pop star. “I love my collaborators on this, and I’m so happy this video is coming out.”
