I’ve been stanning Taylor and Paramore for years but I never heard about their friendship… is this just a PR move?
If you’ve lost interest I think it’s time to check out, 2020-2023 is a fever dream fandom.It’s like Taylor knew I was starting to lose interest in her again, so she included the Fall Out Boy feature just for me. No, but seriously it’s nice to see some features that match her inspirations at the time. Reminds me of Keith Urban showing up on Fearless TV.
Oh dddd um are you sure it's Josh? I've never heard of Taylor having any interest in him, especially since he and Hayley did date for a bit in 2006 or 2007.
The song was inspired by the story of one of her friends and her high school boyfriend. That friend is rumored to be Hayley Williams of Paramore, who attended the wedding of her ex-boyfriend and ex-bandmate Josh Farro in April 2010. The couple went their separate ways after high school – with the idea that they would get back together. One day, Taylor’s friend informed her that her high school boyfriend would soon wed. “He had met this girl who’s just this horrible, mean person who made him completely stop talking to all of his friends, cut off his family. She had him so completely isolated,” said Taylor. She asked her friend if she would “speak now.” Perplexed, her friend asked for an explanation, and she answered, “You know, storm the church. ‘Speak now or forever hold your peace.’ I’ll go with you. I’ll play guitar. It’d be great.” Taylor’s friend found this to be humorous, laughing at the idea:
“One of my friends, the guy she had been in love with since childhood was marrying this other girl. And my first inclination was to say, ‘Well, are you gonna speak now?’ And then I started thinking about what I would do if I was still in love with someone who was marrying someone who they shouldn’t be marrying. And so I wrote this song about exactly what my game plan would be”
I love them so much.
