When fans check out the video for Taylor Swift’s “Mine,” they will be quick to notice how fetching she looks in a wedding dress. And while she only donned the garment for the clip, directed by Roman White, that scene is what had everyone buzzing long before the video even premiered.
“The video is a story of a relationship,” Swift told CMT in the half-hour special that airs Friday night (August 27) at 8 p.m. ET, before the video’s premiere on MTV, CMT and VH1. “It really tells the story of these two people and the things that they go through and their life together.
“The wedding scene in the video is the thing that’s been talked most about because someone got a picture of it when we were shooting it,” she continued, “but I think you’ll find there’s a lot in the video. That may just be one part of it.”
Swift also excitedly dished on her co-star, Toby Hemingway from the upcoming “Black Swan.”
“I picked him because he’s in one of my favorite movies, ’Feast of Love,’ ” Swift said.
“In another movie that he was in, he walks onscreen for the first time, and he had a ’13’ on his sweatshirt, and that’s my lucky number,” she revealed. “So it really wasn’t me that cast him. It was my lucky number.”
So far, fans have been eating up the single, causing it to spike to the top of the charts since its leak and subsequent release earlier this month.
“I got on a plane, I landed in Japan, and it was #1 on iTunes. And when I got on the plane, I had no intention of having a single out until two weeks from now,” she said. “It just ended up so wonderful, and I’m really appreciative of the fans for jumping right on it.”
Swift’s fans will have more to be excited about come October, when she releases her album Speak Now .
“I put everything I had into this album for the last two years, so for it to have a great little start, it really makes me happy,” she said. “Making this album has been such a wonderful experience, and I’m really excited to roll out the first single and the first video.”
