Jimmy Eat World & Taylor Swift Have Mad Love For Each Other & We’re Obsessed
Don't you just love it when musicians actually get along for once?
Well, after Apple Music put the two together in their hilarious advert featuring Tay Tay working out (and falling) on a treadmill to Jimmy Eat World’s hit song ‘The Middle’, the pair have been expressing their love for each other and we’re pretty obsessed with it to be honest.
We caught up with the guys to ask about how this all came about and what they think of Taylor. Frontman Jim Adkins said: “She just has undeniably, hooky, catchy songs. I mean, she’s a pretty big star waving our flag pretty high and it’s just wild.”
He continued, explaining how they first came to know of her love of their band: “At her gigs she would write lyrics of different people she liked on her arm and someone sent us a photo of her.”
“It’s really flattering that a song like ‘The Middle’ fifteen years in, is still connecting with people. Since then she’s become really popular and she’s been really nice to us,” he added.
Because we're the super investigative journalists we are, we've worked out that she wrote the lyrics of their song 'Mixtape' on her arm at her show in New Jersey on the 2011 Speak Now Tour.
Now, there's a great bit of Taylor Swift/Jimmy Eat World trivia for you all. Obviously the love is mutual and we all remember Jimmy Eat World's amazing cover of 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' right? It's AWESOME.
The next part of the interview we really hope is true, but we have a feeling that the guys were pulling our leg with this one…
They said: “We go bowling with her all the time. You know, Rick gives her dating advice.”
Well, if anyone can give Tay Tay dating advice we’re sure that Jimmy Eat World are totally qualified, right?
Whether this is true or not we’re still completely obsessed with their mutual love for each other. It makes a change from all the beef going on in the music world at the moment, eh?
