“When I was like 23, people were just kind of reducing me to—kind of making slideshows of my dating life and putting people in there that I’d sat next to at a party once and deciding that my songwriting was like a trick,” the Grammy winner shared. “Rather than a skill and a craft.”
That clip was then stitched together with the Ellen DeGeneres Show interview, in which the host showed images of several men—Taylor Lautner, Justin Bieber, Joe Jonas and Justin Timberlake—and asked Taylor to ring a bell when a photo landed on one of her famous exes.
And the “All Too Well” singer expresses her disinterest in the game as Ellen—who ended the show in 2022, two years after facing allegations of a toxic workplace—egged her on.
“Stop it, stop it, stop! This makes me feel so bad about myself,” Taylor said in the clip. “Every time I come up here, you put a different dude up there on the screen, and it just makes me really question what I stand for as a human being.”
Emily commented on the Jan. 5 video, “This is so f–-ked up. She’s literally begging her to stop.”
Tinx also chimed in with her two cents, writing, “Unbelievable.”
