In Lowe’s segment, Swift referred to an old interview in which she felt uncomfortable when she was 23, saying that people at the time “reduced” her to the person she was dating, “made slideshows of my dating life and put people on there. I once I was sitting next to each other at the party.

They “decided that my songwriting was a gimmick rather than a skill and a skill,” he candidly told Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

“It’s a way of taking a woman who’s doing her job and succeeding in doing her job and doing something, and in some ways figuring out how to completely diminish that skill,” Swift continued.

In the 2012 clip, DeGeneres teases the singer with a slideshow of Swift with various men. From Taylor Lautner to Justin Bieber, DeGeneres enlists the “All Too Well” singer to tell us which guy she’ll sing about on her album.

“I don’t want to,” she pleads when DeGeneres asks her to make a call as a picture of the muse appears on the screen. “They send me angry emails and I don’t want to receive them.”

Although young at the time, Swift wasn’t afraid to bounce back.

“Stop it, stop it, stop it!” the singer exclaims as DeGeneres sits smiling in the opposite chair. “It makes me feel really bad. Every time I come here, you put another guy on the screen and it makes me question what I stand for as a person.

DeGeneres, who apologized for what some believe were “toxic” workplace allegations from former employees, was called out for an interview.
