Swift tells McDonagh for Diversity that directing wasn’t something she always wanted to do; it’s been a role that’s meant for her over time. “I always wanted to tell stories,” she said. “I have always written stories, poems, songs. And I think this just evolved from that storytelling. And the more I do it, the more I love it.”
She explained that turning to directing her own music videos was “really unnecessary”. “I have been writing my videos for years, and I had a video that was a very specific concept that I wrote about. [2019’s “The Man”], is that I want to be turned into a fake man and live my life like a man. And I want a female director to direct it. And the few I contacted were lucky enough to be booked. We like when women work. So I said, ‘I can do it, I can.’ And when I was directing, I just thought, ‘This is really more satisfying than I could have imagined.’”
