Taylor Swift, ‘The Story of Us’ Video
Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. Boy and girl have confusing split. Boy and girl awkwardly see each other post-breakup. It’s a story most of us are familiar with … and for Taylor Swift, it’s ‘The Story of Us.’ The song was inspired by the country superstar’s run-in with an ex at an awards show (Joe Jonas? John Mayer perhaps?). “Afterward, I just felt so empty, like we were both fighting this silent war of pretending we didn’t care that the other was there,” she tells MTV. “And I went home, and I wrote this song about it.”
The setting of the clip, however, is not an awards show but rather a school library. Watch Taylor’s brand-new video for ‘The Story of Us’ below.
