“people say that infp’s are shy and often hold back when talking to people. but i tend to overshare and babble whenever i’m with new people or when I’m anxious, causing me to regret it later on and dwell on every awkward details that my brain can come up with about the situation”
Anybody else thinking about Dana Scully sitting down at a dirty kitchen table opening up her laptop and pushing her glasses up on her nose while sitting down to write a case report at 6:30am on a Saturday wearing Mulder's tee shirt from the UFO museum in Roswell and a pair of his boxers?
It was about 5 hours into the second day of her music video
shoot for the lead single of her new album, and Taylor was beyond excited for
everyone to see what she had been working on. She always knew that when her and
Joseph Kahn worked together they could create something next level. Today they
were filming the mountain of Taylor’s scene, and it was pretty surreal to walk
on set and see a bunch of girls all dressed like her past selves. Versions of
herself that she felt so distant from, yet in some ways still connected to
after over ten years of her career. So much had happened to her since she had
been most of those girls. While part of her wished that she could go back and
experience what is was like to be that naive and innocent, she was really
grateful for the place that she was in today, even if it took a really hard
year of the media and everyone trying to tare her down for her to get to here.
In addition to making her feel a little sentimental, it was also a lot of fun. Taylor
had a great time talking with the girls and figure out which one of her self
was going to fight another version of herself. She knew it was kind of a crazy
concept, but also perfect for the message of the music video.
After they finished filming the first look, Joseph suggested
that they all take a short break since Taylor needed to go change into her
Junior Jewels tshirt and pajama pants for her next look. While she was
changing, she looked down at her phone and noticed a text from her boyfriend,
“Hey babe, I wanna come visit you on set! I’m already on my
way and I’ll be there in a couple of minutes so you can’t say no now ;)”
She couldn’t help but smile and role her eyes at Joe’s
words. She had been debating letting him come to the set to see her at all.
Part of her wanted to make him wait to see the video once it was completely
finished in order to make it more of a big surprise. She also kind of loved
torturing him a little by making him wait like everyone else to get to see the
finished project. But at the same time, she really wanted to see him and it
made her heart melt to think that he genuinely cared and really wanted to be
there to see her and support her in something that was going to be huge for her
career. Apparently Joe made the choice for her and was coming to visit her
whether she approved or not, which she was secretly pretty happy about.
“Okay fine, I guess since you’re already on your way I’ll
allow it this time. See you soon babe” Taylor quickly responded.
After she finished changing, she walked back out on set
wearing plaid pajama pants, a new and improved junior jewels tshirt, and
glasses with her hair pulled back into a messy ponytail. This was by far the
most comfortable look of the whole video. All of the different versions of
Taylor were scattered around the set chatting, drinking water, and eating some
snacks from craft service, while Joseph was busy looking at the footage that
they had shot earlier in the day.
Taylor walked up to Joseph to see how the earlier shots had
turned out and was pleased with what she saw for the most part. She could tell
that this video was going to look amazing once it was all edited together.
“Do you want start filming the next scene soon?” Joseph
asked while still staring intently at the computer screen.
“In a couple of minutes. Joe just texted me and told me his
was stopping by to visit, and he should be here any second. So I’ll just
quickly say hi to him for a minute and then we can get back to work.”
Just as Taylor finished her sentence, she looked up and saw
Joe walking in. She couldn’t help but laugh at the look on his face as he
glanced around slightly confused at seeing all of the many different versions
of Taylor. He finally made eye contact with the real Taylor and made his way
over to his girlfriend. Taylor immediately greeted him with a big hug and a
“I didn’t know I would be visiting so many of you today” Joe
“Well I guess I did get to give you a bit of a surprise
then” Taylor laughed
Taylor could feel the eyes of everyone else on the set
watching her and Joe’s interaction, so she decided that she should introduce
him to everyone else. They walked over closer to where the many other Taylors
were all hanging out.
“So this is my boyfriend Joe, he decided to crash the set
today” Taylor explained as she shot Joe a playful look.
“Sorry I couldn’t resist” Joe shot back as he placed his arm
around her and pulled her into him kissing her temple.
All of the other girls laughed and said hi back to Joe.
“Well these are all of the different versions of me throughout
the years as you can see. Is it weird seeing a ton of different Taylor’s from
before you even knew me?” Taylor asked
“Well I’m actually pretty familiar with this Taylor” Joe
responded with a smirk while looking over at his pajama-clad girlfriend. “In fact
I would say this is the Taylor I’ve spent the most time with, except normally
you’re just stealing one of my tshirts and now you’ve made your own” Joe shot
Taylor playfully hit his arm but couldn’t help but laugh. He
wasn’t wrong, a lot of the time that they had spent together in the past
several months of their relationship had consisted of chilling in the house that
she was renting in London, while watching never ending Netflix marathons and
cuddling. To he honest, she loved that. She loved not having to worry about
dressing up and doing her hair and makeup and always having to be so perfect
and put together for him. He genuinely just loved spending time with her, and
it was so nice to just relax and have some normalcy in their relationship.
“Is this your way of telling me I need to try a little
harder more often and change out of my pajamas every once in awhile?” Taylor
“Of course not babe, I think you look cute in your pajamas,
and you are welcome to steal my tshirts whenever you want” Joe replied with a
By now all of the different Taylors and Joseph had were all
laughing in amusement at the couple’s conversation.
“Okay love birds, as much as I would love to continue
discussing Taylor’s wardrobe choices, I think we should probably start shooting
the next look if we want to get everything that we need to done today. Don’t
worry you can tell her how beautiful she is when she looks like a mess later.”
Joseph spoke up.
“Hey!,” Taylor shot back pretending to be offended before
agreeing, “Okay you’re right, lets start filming then.” She then turned to Joe,
telling him, “Babe if you want to stay a
little bit longer and watch you can go sit over there. My mom should be back
soon anyways, so you can talk to her while we film.”
“Of course I’m planning on staying to watch. I want to see
all my Taylor’s in action” Joe joked before stealing a quick kiss and walking
over to sit down on the side of the set.
Joe couldn’t wipe the smile off of his face as he watched
Taylor in her element, being goofy and cute while fighting with the other
versions of herself. The fact that she even seemed incredibly excited about
being kicked in the face by another Taylor was super endearing, and it showed
how much she loved doing this. He could tell that she truly enjoyed her job,
even though there were definitely some hard aspects of it.
He continued watching her and caught up with Andrea once she
returned and took a seat next to him. They couldn’t help but laugh as Taylor
continued to act out the scenes. He was so happy just watching her that he
didn’t even realize he had already been there for hours. He heard Joseph say
“that’s a wrap, we’re done for the night,” distracting him from his
conversation with Andrea.
Once they decided to stop for the night, Taylor immediately
ran over to where Joe and her mom were seated and gave them both a big hug,
before turning to Joe and remarking,
“I can’t believe you
actually stayed for the whole shoot. You just sat and watched me act like a
complete dork for hours. You really didn’t have to stay the whole time.”
“I wanted to stay, it was fun to get to see you working.
Plus you just looked so cute as your 18 year old band geek self, how was I
supposed to leave?” Joe teased, causing Taylor to blush a little bit as she
laughed at his remark.
Her mom cut in, commenting, “I happen to agree, I think that
she has always been super adorable at every age” she joked. “You looked great
today honey! I can’t wait to see the final video when it’s finished!”
“Speaking of that, we should probably head home because it’s
already super late and I have to be back early tomorrow morning, so I should
probably go get some sleep tonight” Taylor noted.
“Well I drove here so I can just drive us back if you want
to have one of the guys drop your mom at home,” Joe suggested.
Taylor looked over at her mom before asking, “Mom is that
cool with you?”
“That sounds good honey. I’ll see you tomorrow morning. Go
get some rest.” Andrea responded hugging both Taylor and Joe before turning to
The couple then proceeded to walk out to Joe’s car hand in
hand laughing and joking about the day. Taylor couldn’t help but smile at how normal
this felt. Walking out to the car with her boyfriend to drive home. There were
no cameras or paparazzi at the moment, and she was beyond grateful to have Joe
in her life.
Once they got in the car Joe immediately reached out to hold
on to her hand and she looked up at him and said “thank you for coming today.
Really it meant a lot to me” with an obvious sense of sincerity. “Of course
babe, I wouldn’t miss it. Now lets get you home, so you can get some rest.”
