Taylor Swift Talks about her song December and Taylor Lautner
The song is "an apology in the form of a song," she says. "You know, in life, you learn lessons. And sometimes you learn them the hard way. Sometimes you learn them too late."
"The song 'Back to December' is about a lesson I learned too late. And I think, when you do that, and you finally realize that you were wrong, you need to say you're sorry. And this was the best way that I knew how."
She did not specificially say the song is about her former relatioship with actor Taylor Lautner of the Twilight films, but according to People, she did say last month that "The person I wrote this song for deserves this. This is about a person who was incredible to me – just perfect to me in a relationship – and I was really careless with him."
Her comments plus known events surrounding the times she spent with Taylor Lautner lead many observers to guess that the person she is apologizing to in the song is the actor.
The special, Taylor Swift: Speak Now, will air on NBC Thanksgiving night at 8 p.m. ET.
Taylor Swift has also just announced dates for her Speak Now world tour.
