Taylor Swift Ryan Adams Interview GQ


Taylor Swift was interviewed by Ryan Adams as part of her GQ cover story, with the superstar revealing a dream she had about an ex. Check out the video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Swift graces the cover of the magazine’s November issue, for which she was profiled by Chuck Klosterman. But the singer also sat down with Adams, who recently dropped his 1989 cover album. On Monday, GQ released a video from the performers’ chat, and the conversation ranged from the silly (Siri queries) to the serious (songwriting strategies).

Adams began by asking Swift if she ever “dreamt a song,” and the songstress enthusiastically admitted she had, and specifically cited “All You Had To Do Is Stay.” Swift explained, “I had a dream that my ex showed up at my door, knocked on my door, and I opened it up, and I was about ready to launch into the perfect thing to say. And instead, all that would come out of my mouth was that high-pitched chorus of people singing, ‘Stay.'”

“You go to say something else, and it’s just like ‘Stay, stay, stay,'” recalled Swift. “And I woke up and I was like, ‘Oh, that was mortifying, but that’s kind of a cool vocal part.'” The dream ended up inspiring “All You Had To Do Is Stay,” which is on 1989, an album that’s said to be, at least in part, about Harry Styles.

Further talking about the track, Swift said, “My version of is it like, ‘All you had to do was stay. Sorry about it. I don’t miss you. And now you’re back.” In contrast, the singer noted that Adams’ interpretation came off as, “All you had to do was stay. You broke my heart. That’s all you had to do.” And now Haylor fans have yet another thing to analyze.
