It was then put into production by Shellback and Max Martin. It was released from her album RED that came out in 2012 by Big Machine Records and also Republic Records.
It is a chaotic song about love, confusion, and finding yourself once you have lost yourself. You get the feeling of becoming extremely frustrated with yourself due to the fact that you’re heart broken. However, when you first met the person you had those warning signs and little red flags went off yet you still went for it which was why the “shame on me” part was added into the song. To show how not following these rules basically put her into the position of making the wrong choice.
The story from the song is mostly about a good girl falling for the wrong or bad guy and continues through the bad relationship because of the way she feels for him, even if he doesn’t feel that way back. They do end up breaking up in the end of the song and video. Having this type of toxic relationship can be a problem since you might to break it off but the feeling that you have with the other person might be too strong to overcome to walk away until the last minute. This is when the video goes to the ‘boyfriend’ seeing the other girl at the party and then leaving Swift on her own at the deserted party area.
