Blake Lively Calls Taylor Swift Music Unmatched in Exclusive Interview

Blake Lively recently opened up about her admiration for Taylor Swift’s music in an exclusive interview, calling it “unmatched.” The actress, who has been friends with Swift for nearly a decade, didn’t hold back her praise. “No, no, I really am her biggest fan,” Lively emphasized during an interview at Book Bonanza in Texas. Her dedication to Swift’s music is evident, as she recently attended consecutive Eras Tour shows in Spain.

Lively’s connection to Swift goes beyond friendship. She played a pivotal role in securing Swift’s 2020 track, “my tears ricochet,” for the trailer of the film adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s “It Ends With Us.” “You could’ve put any song on, but her music is just, like, unmatched,” Lively gushed. “Her writing is so beautiful and personal. You can feel that in the way she sings and in her lyrics.”

The bond between Lively and Swift was also on display when they stepped out together for Swift’s New York City birthday party in December 2023. Their friendship is not just a public spectacle but a genuine connection that has stood the test of time.

Lively’s admiration for Swift’s music is not just about the melodies but the emotions they convey. As the protagonist Lily Bloom in “It Ends With Us,” Lively has the challenging task of portraying a character in an abusive relationship. The book, a fan-favorite since its 2016 release, has sold over a million copies. “This story resonated with so many people, so there’s a great responsibility,” Lively said. “You want to honor this book and this character that people love so much, but you also want to bring a life and humanity to it that is true to who you are.”

Lively’s commitment to the role and the film is evident. “We really worked hard on that, but I also believe if you saw the movie and then read the book, you wouldn’t go, ‘Hold on, this isn’t’… I think they’re both really beautiful,” she said. The film, set to hit theaters on August 9, has fans eagerly awaiting its release.

In the interview, Lively also touched on the pressure of adapting a beloved book into a film. “Some people will always like a book better than a movie and some people like a movie better than the book,” she acknowledged. “But I think that we just did our best to honor the book and honor the fans and make something that works even by itself.”

Lively’s passion for Swift’s music and her dedication to her role in “It Ends With Us” highlight her multifaceted talents and deep connections in the entertainment industry. Her ability to bring Swift’s music into the film adaptation is a testament to their strong friendship and mutual respect.

As the countdown to the film’s release continues, fans of both Lively and Swift have much to look forward to. The collaboration between the two stars, both on and off the screen, promises to deliver a powerful and emotional experience.

Blake Lively’s exclusive interview sheds light on her deep appreciation for Taylor Swift’s music and her commitment to bringing beloved stories to life on screen. Her words resonate with fans who share her admiration for Swift’s unmatched talent and the emotional depth of her music.
