Swift explained, “We were in the studio, and this guy walked in who was a friend of my ex’s, and he just started, he introduced himself and made some comment about how he heard I was going to get back together with my ex, and after he left I was talking about it … and I was just like we are never, ever, ever getting back together.” She continued explaining. She then picked up a guitar and began writing the song then and there.
