Taylor Swift’s childish tantrum resurfaces: ‘But daddy I love him’ | Pro Hub of News

Taylor Swift’s track “But Daddy I Love Him” from her recent album isn’t just fiction. In an old interview, the singer confirmed that the line “But, daddy, I love him” was something she actually said to her father, Scott, during a dramatic teenage outburst.

The interview, dating back to 2008, resurfaced recently, adding depth to Swift’s ongoing Eras Tour, which continues to captivate audiences with songs that delve into both her current romance with Travis Kelce and past love stories.

Reflecting on the inspiration behind her hit “Love Story” during the interview with PopSugar shortly after the release of her second album Fearless, Swift recalled the genesis of the song. She recounted a moment of defiance towards her father, standing up for a lover he didn’t approve of.

“I wrote this song right after my one epic teenage tantrum that I ever threw in my whole life,” she shared. “I remember screaming something like ‘But daddy, I love him!’ and storming into my room, slamming the door. Then, I sat down on the floor and wrote this song.”

Now, 16 years later, Swift’s lyrics in one of her Tortured Poets Department (TTPD) songs echo that emotional moment: “Now I’m running with my dress unbuttoned / Screaming ‘But Daddy I love him!’ / I’m having his baby / No, I’m not, but you should see your faces.”

In these lyrics, Swift captures the turmoil of forbidden love, expressing her attraction to a man despite parental disapproval and the gossip of the townsfolk.
