Taylor Swift's inspiration for "You Need To Calm Down"

Fans are suspecting that the 5th track on Taylor Swift's album "Lover" will be related to summer. First, in the video, Ellen DeGeneres was being tattooed with the phrase "Cruel Summer." Then, in her new Spotify storyline for "Calm Down," she says that she wrote the song "about the energy and effort that some people put into spreading negativity. With all of the trolling, cancel culture, telling people how to live their lives, or pitting women against each other... you're being too loud. This is a song where I'm just saying 'you need to calm down.' Go outside. It's the summer."






She also explains how the feud ended between her and Katy Perry during an interview this morning (thank you evett for posting it here). In it, she describes how it ended when Katy sent her an olive branch. She says, "We have been on really good terms for awhile. She sent this beautiful note and olive branch to the opening night of the Reputation Stadium Tour awhile ago. And from then on, we've been on good terms. We hadn't seen each other though, so the first time we saw each other, it was at this party. And when we saw each other, it was just very clear to both of us that everything was different... that we had grown up, that we had grown past, um, allowing ourselves to sort of be pitted against each other. It was just really, really clear that we remembered how much we had in common."
