Somewhere on my list of life goals (probably between making my parents proud and signing a marriage certificate with Ryan Gosling) is to have a tea party with Taylor Swift and her Scottish Fold cat Meredith. Swift seems like the ultimate BFF, not only because she’s so energetic and has a quirky fashion sense, but she also wrote the ultimate breakup anthem.
Now we get the visuals for “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and I’m so happy she’s turning what’s usually a sad time into a regular hootenanny dance party. Never again will your friend have to be like “dude, you’re better off without him — let’s eat ice cream.” Now they can just gaze at you wisely and advise “listen to Taylor honey.”
The best parts of the video involve Taylor dancing with her bandmates, who all wear animal costumes, and Swift throwing Mr. Nobody out while wearing hipster glasses.
The single is from her upcoming album Red, due out Oct. 22.

We basically had a slumber party convo with Princess Taylor Swift last night when she hosted a live web chat with the world on YouTube. She told us about a week ago that she had MAJOR news and she didn’t disappoint. Swift revealed that she has a new album coming out on Oct. 22 called Red and a new single called “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” She also unveiled her new album cover (above).
Although Swift is so young, she’s also like an oh-so-wise Yoda when it comes to relationships. She said about the songs on the album: “They’re all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years. And all those emotions, spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that, in my mind all of those emotions are red. There’s nothing in between — there’s nothing beige about those feelings.
She hosted the live chat from Nashville in front of fans from across the world. The album will have 16 songs, including the title track. It also features collabs with several artists and songwriters, including Ed Sheeran. Apparently Swift and Sheeran wrote the song while sitting on a trampoline.
She played “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” during the chat and joked “it’s a really romantic song that’s to my lovely ex-boyfriend.”
